*The California State University (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 has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees.

Non-resident Students

Non-residents and foreign visa students are required to pay non-resident tuition fees in addition to fees charged to all students.

Non-Resident Tuition did not increase in 2010/11 nor 2011/12, however at the June, 2010 meeting, the CSU eliminated the maximum academic year total number of units for which this fee applies. All units taken by nonresident students are now charged the nonresident tuition rate.

Tuition for Non-Resident Students in addition to registration fees:
Per Unit $372

Non-resident students are eligible for an installment payment plan. There is a 15% service fee on the plan. Contact the Seawolf Services Office for details prior to July 1, 2014, or pay fees in full by that date.
