Fee and Payment Information


The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum.  Tuition 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 tuition fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed tuition fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun.  All CSU listed tuition fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees and/or the Campus.

Payment Methods- Travelex Wire Transfer

San Francisco State University has contracted with Travelex, a specialist in global business payments, to provide international students with an alternative to paying their tuition and registration fees by wire transfer. Travelex offers a competitive rate of exchange and low fees for processing payments in many international currencies.


To use this new service please following the steps below:


Select Travelex Bank to Bank Transfer to begin the payment process and enter the information required including name, email address, and SF State ID number. 


Enter the US dollar amount of the payment you wish to make to your student bill.  Select the payment currency or associated country that you will make your payment from. If your currency is not listed on the Travelex Currency List, please make your payment by Bank Wire Transfer.


A conversion at a competitive rate of exchange from the US dollar amount will be applied to your chosen currency through the Travelex real-time rate engine. You will have the opportunity to view the payable amount in your local currency before committing to the transaction.


Finalize the transaction by following the instructions on the webpage.


Print the confirmation page and take it to your local bank to initiate the transfer of funds to Travelex.  Please note that the currency quote on the confirmation page is valid for 72 hours. Travelex must receive the request within 72 hours of your receipt of the currency quote.


Travelex will then forward the US dollar amount to San Francisco State University where it will be credited to your student account.


REMEMBER: If you have not paid your fees in full, you are not enrolled!
