Budgets are estimated and subject to change.
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 the 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.
*Fees and totals are estimated for academic year (fall and spring terms) based on full-time enrollment (6.1 units or more per term). Non-resident students pay tuition fees plus $372 per unit out-of-state tuition fee. Budgets are estimated and subject to change. Housing and meal costs are estimated.
