CSU Budget Office

Summer Term 2018 Tuition Schedules

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 tuition or fees are initially charged or 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 Chancellor has approved four summer term tuition schedules that are applicable for campuses running a state-supported summer term. Campuses may implement the applicable schedule of their choice. Summer term tuition is based on the preceding spring term tuition rates. Tuition rate increases are effective at the beginning of the fall term. Campuses are reminded that summer term tuition revenues will continue to be calculated based on the standard tuition schedule regardless of the summer term tuition schedule adopted by the campus. Students are advised to consult Campus Summer Term Course Catalogs to determine the tuition schedule in use on their campus.

Option #1 - Summer Term 2018 - Standard Tuition Schedule

Option #1 is the standard tuition schedule and is the same as the tuition schedule that applies during the academic year on a per term basis. The standard tuition also establishes the maximum tuition that cannot be exceeded if a campus utilizes Option #2, #3, or #4.
