Fee and Payment Information


The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum.  Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate.  Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun.  All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees and/or the Campus.


Important Information:

State University Fee: The CSU Board of Trustees at its June 18, 2010 meeting approved a 5% increase to the State University Fee for undergraduate, graduate, and credential students that is effective with the Fall 2010 semester.


MBA Professional Fee: The CSU Board of Trustees at its June 18, 2010 meeting approved a 5% increase to the graduate professional fee for state-supported Master’s of Business Administration (MBA) programs and similar business graduate degrees that is effective with the Fall 2010 semester.
