CSU Budget Office

2012-13 Schedule of Systemwide Fees

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 initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees, 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 Board of Trustees on September 18, 2012 approved reductions in various fee rates retroactive to the Fall 2012 term, contingent on voter approval of Proposition 30 (the Governor's initiative) on the November ballot. The voters approved Proposition 30, therefore, the following fee rates are now in effect for the 2012-13 academic year.
