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.


Payment Methods- Electronic Check (e-Check)

An e-Check or ACH is - authorization to automatically debit your checking or savings account through the university’s third party provider. You need to enter your checking/savings account number and the ABA (routing and transit) number, which is a unique series of numbers that identifies your financial institution. There is no service fee.


To pay online with e-Check, log on to SF State Gateway. Navigate to the Student Center and in the “Finances” section (center of the page), click on “Make a Payment”


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