Schedule of Tuition Fees, 2012-2013

The CSU system 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.

The following reflects applicable System-Wide Fees and non-resident tuition for both semester and quarter campuses.

All Students: Application Fee (non-refundable), payable by check or money order at time application is made: $55.
