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 reserves the right, even after initial payments are made, to increase or modify any listed tuition or fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory systemwide tuition, are subject to change 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, the Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate. Changes in mandatory systemwide tuition will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028 – 66028.6 of the Education Code).
The following reflects applicable systemwide tuition and fees for semester campuses that were authorized by the Board of Trustees at the March 2017 meeting. These rates are subject to change.
- 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 exemptions under the provisions of the California Education Code (see section on Fee Waivers).
- Tuition and Fees for programs offered under the College of Extended Education vary from the fees listed below. Learn more about tuition and fees under Extended Education.
