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 $396 per unit out-of-state tuition fee. Budgets are estimated and subject to change. Housing and meal costs are estimated.

Net Price Calculator

The Net Price Calculator provides an early approximation of what a new first-year, undergraduate student can expect to pay to attend Channel Islands. It is not intended for use by graduate, transfer, readmitted, continuing, international or part-time students, who should contact the Financial Aid & Scholarships office for more information.

The amount you should expect to contribute will also depend on the amount of federal student and/or parent loans you plan to borrow. Your financial aid award will include a federal student loan and a Parent PLUS loan.

Note: Using this online calculator is not an application for, nor an offer of, financial aid. If you find that the format of this Net Price Calculator is not accessible, or for any other accessibility difficulties, please contact the Financial Aid & Scholarships office directly for assistance.
