On September 13, 2023, the California State University Board of Trustees approved a multi-year revenue sustainability plan for systemwide tuition, nonresident tuition and the graduate business professional program fee. The plan benefits current and prospective students in three important ways: 1) provide the necessary resources for each university to further the CSU’s core values of equitable excellence and access; 2) provide tuition stability and predictability for students and parents; and 3) enhance financial aid and affordability for those students with the greatest financial need. The increase takes effect in the 2024-25 academic year, starting with the fall 2024 term.
The CSU’s first priority and commitment continues to be to pursue full funding from the state and to work with partners across the system for the level of new funding that supports student success. Additionally, the CSU is committed to its efforts to find administrative efficiencies and increase effectiveness across the system, which help mitigate increasing mandatory costs. However, to ensure the university has the revenue to meet its priorities, the CSU has followed the timeline and process laid out in the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028 through 66028.6 of the California Education Code) to present the now-approved proposal for the tuition increase beginning in 2024-25.
