Scholarships and non-resident fee waiver

International student non-resident fee waiver

International F-1 degree seeking students may be eligible for the International Student Non-Resident Fee Waiver. The primary purpose of the waiver is to recognize international students who display exceptional scholastic achievements, dedication, and financial need. Recipients of this award receive a full waiver of the non-resident fee portion of their tuition, between $7,900 and $14,250 depending on number of units taken. These awards are competitive and a small percentage of applicants will receive the scholarships. Students must reapply every year to be considered for the International Student Non-Resident Fee Waiver again.

There are two different application processes depending on if you are a new student to CSUMB or an international student already studying at CSUMB. Please see eligibility and application processes below.
