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.

Special Circumstances- Subsidized Students

If a government agency (U.S. or foreign) or private company is going to pay your tuition and fees, submit a letter from the subsidizing organization by your fee payment deadline to ensure eligibility to register. The letter must include your name, student I.D. number, the semester covered, the amount of the subsidy, and the point of contact at the organization. If the subsidy does not cover full tuition and fees or tuition, the balance must be received before the first day of instruction for the earliest enrolled session. If you are also receiving Financial Aid, the subsidy letter must be received prior to your Financial Aid disbursement to prevent the subsidized amount from being deducted from your award. Refund requests for fees paid out of the Financial Aid funds are processed once the subsidizing agency/organization has remitted the full payment.


If the subsidy authorization letter is received by the Bursar's Office after payment has been made, refund requests will be processed once the subsidizing agency/organization has remitted full payment.


Payment deadlines and penalties as stated above apply to subsidized and Special Circumstances students. Should the agency fail to pay any unpaid fees, it becomes the student's responsibility to pay the fee obligations.
