Fee Rates

The CSU 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 fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees.  All listed fees, other than mandatory systemwide fees, are subject to change 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 Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate.  Changes in mandatory systemwide fees 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 2015 tuition fee schedules that are applicable for campuses running a state-supported summer term. Campuses may implement the applicable summer term fee schedule of their choice.

Campus-Based Mandatory Fee Rates
Each campus is authorized to charge campus-based mandatory fees in addition to systemwide fees. 2014-15 academic year rates and historical fee rates, for the past nine academic years, are included on each of the following pages. Any changes to these posted fees for 2015-16 will be updated Fall 2015.
