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- Wire Transfer

Students may initiate a wire transfer to SF State for payment of registration and tuition fees. An additional $20 (non-refundable) wire service charge must be included with the payment for SF State to process the wire transfer.


The student's banking institution, in their home country, may need to use an intermediate bank to send funds to SF State. The intermediate bank may also charge a fee for processing the wire transfers, so the amount that SF State receives may be less than the amount the student initially intends to send to the University. SF State has no way of knowing when a banking institution will use an intermediate bank or how much they will charge for their services. SF State will notify the student by email if their payment is short.


The transfer amount is not to exceed $15,000 and can only be for the semester(s) that the campus is accepting payments for at the time. Failure to follow the Wire Transfer Policy may result in registration problems, late fees, or prevent the student from obtaining University services.

For more details see, Wire Transfer Policy.


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