The Cost of Attendance (COA), also referred to as the student budget, is a standard estimated total of a student’s expenses while attending school.
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 2012-2013 Cost of Attendance is as follows:
|Cost Item||At Home||On Campus||Off Campus|
