The information on these pages reflects applicable systemwide tuition and fees for resident and nonresident students. Tuition and fees may vary from one academic year or semester to the next. Thus, you should use the left navigation to select a specific year or semester to view its schedule of registration tuition and fees, nonresident tuition, and other fees and charges. 

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

  • Tuition and Fees for auditing are the same as for credit.
  • Mandatory systemwide tuition and fees are waived for those individuals who qualify for such exemption under the provisions of the California Education Code (see section on Fee Waivers).

Fee Allocation

A fee advisory committee comprised of a student majority provides advice to the campus president about charging student fees and allocating campus-based fee revenue. Resources from the materials, services, and facilities fee are used to support a variety of services, and currently are allocated to support health services, instructionally related activities, transportation, childcare, and university services (includes ID card, transcripts, campus catalog, graduation/diploma). The allocation to transportation supports alternative modes of transportation, including the shuttle service, but does not include a parking permit. If you elect to purchase a parking permit, you will pay an additional fee as noted in Other Fees and Charges.
