Financial Information

Students are required to pay tuition in accordance with the instructions provided in the quarterly Class Schedule and via My Coyote Self Service. Non-resident students shall pay tuition in addition to other university fees.

The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Tuition and 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 tuition or fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed tuition or fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory system wide tuition, are subject to change without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU-listed tuition and fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate. Changes in mandatory systemwide tuition will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028 – 66028.6 of the Education Code).

Effective fall 2015 Campus Category II Fees charged to students will be adjusted using the Higher Education Price Index (HEPI) on an annual basis.  Yearly increases are not to exceed 4% of prior year HEPI.   The Associated Students Incorporated fee and the ID fee will not be impacted.  Visit the Student Financial Services website at https://www.csusb.edu/student-financial-services for more information.

Fees

Cash, checks and ATM debit cards will be accepted at Student Financial Services. Electronic checks, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express will be accepted through a third party vendor.  There is no fee for electronic checks. A service fee will be assessed for credit card payments. Credit cards are no longer accepted on campus, except in the bookstore, commons.

 Applicable term tuition apply for campuses with special terms, as determined by the campus. Total College Year tuition cannot exceed the Academic Year plus Summer Term tuition. The Summer Term tuition for the Education Doctorate at quarter campuses is equal to the Per Semester tuition listed in the table. Total tuition for the Education Doctorate over the College Year equals the Per Academic Year tuition plus the Per Semester tuition for the summer term at all CSU campuses.

State Tuition Fee (STF)

A state tuition fee has been established by the trustees of the California State University to provide financing for various student services programs not covered by state funding.

Nonresident Students (U.S. and Foreign)

Nonresident Tuition is in addition to basic tuition and other system wide fees charged to all students.  The total nonresident tuition paid per term will be determined by the number of units taken.  Mandatory system wide tuition is waived for those individuals who qualify for such exemption under the provisions of the California Education Code (see section on fee waivers).

Students are charged campus fees in addition to tuition and system wide fees.  Information on campus fees can be found by contacting the individual campus (es).

Graduate Business Professional Fee

The Graduate Business Professional Fee is paid on a per unit basis in addition to the basic tuition and campus fees for the following graduate business programs:

  • Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) programs
  • Master of Science (M.S.) in Accountancy programs
  • Master of Science (M.S.) in Information Systems

Fee Waivers and Exemptions

The California Education Code includes provisions for the waiver or exemption of mandatory systemwide tuition as follows:

Section 66025.3 –Dependent eligible to receive assistance under Article 2 of Chapter 4 of Division 4 of the Military and Veterans Code; child of veteran of the United States military who has a service-connected disability, has been killed in service, or has died of a service-connected disability, and meets specified income provisions; dependent, or surviving spouse (who has not remarried) of a member of the California National Guard who, in the line of duty, and while in the active service of the state, was killed, died of a disability resulting from an event that occurred while in the active service of the state, or is permanently disabled as a result of an event that occurred while in the active service of the state; and undergraduate student who is a recipient of a Medal of Honor, or undergraduate student who is a child of a recipient of a Medal of Honor who is no more than 27 years old, meets the income restriction and California residency requirement.

Section 66602 – Qualifying students from the California State University that are appointed by the Governor to serve as Trustees of the California State University for two-year terms.

Section 68121–Qualifying students enrolled in an undergraduate program who are the surviving dependent of any individual killed in the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon building in Washington, D.C., or the crash of United Airlines Flight 93 in southwestern Pennsylvania, if the student meets the financial need requirements set forth in Section 69432.7 for the Cal Grant A Program and either the surviving dependent or the individual killed in the attacks was a resident of California on September 11, 2001.

Students who may qualify for the above benefits should contact the Office of Financial Aid for further information and/or an eligibility determination.

The California Education Code provides for the following nonresident tuition exemptions:

Section 68075.7 – Nonresident students are exempt from paying nonresident tuition or any other fee that is exclusively applicable to nonresident students if they (1) reside in California, (2) meet the definition of "covered individual" as defined in subsection (c) of Section 3679 of Title 38 of the United States Code, as that provision read on July 1, 2015; and (3) are eligible for education benefits under either the federal Montgomery GI Bill-Active Duty program or the Post-9/11 GI Bill program as each read on July 1, 2015.

Section 68122 – Students who are victims of trafficking, domestic violence, and other serious crimes who have been granted T or U visa status shall be exempt from paying nonresident tuition to the same extent as individuals who are admitted to the United States as refugees under Section 1157 of Title 8 of the United States Code.

Section 68130.5 – Students who are not residents of California are exempt from paying nonresident tuition if they (1) (a) attended high school in California for three or more years, or (b) attained credits earned from a California high school equivalent to three or more years of full-time high school coursework and a total of three or more years of attendance in California elementary schools, California secondary schools, or a combination of those schools; (2) graduated from a California high school or attained the equivalent; and (3) registered as an entering student or are currently enrolled at a CSU campus. In addition, students without lawful immigration status will be required to file an affidavit stating that they have filed an application to legalize their immigration status, or will file an application as soon as they are eligible to do so.

Refund of Mandatory Fees Including Nonresident Tuition

Student Financial Services
(909) 537-5162

Regulations governing the refund of mandatory fees, including nonresident tuition, for students enrolling at the California State University are included in Section 41802 of Title 5, California Code of Regulations. For purposes of the refund policy, mandatory fees are defined as those systemwide and campus fees that are required to be paid in order to enroll in state-supported academic programs at the California State University. Refunds of fees and tuition charges for self-support, special session, and extended education programs or courses at the California State University are governed by a separate policy established by the University, available at the College of Extended Learning.

In order to receive a full refund of mandatory fees, less an administrative charge established by the campus, including nonresident tuition, a student must cancel registration or drop all courses prior to the first day of instruction for the term. Information on procedures and deadlines for canceling registration and dropping classes is available in the Schedule of Classes.

For state-supported semesters, quarters, and non-standard terms or courses of four (4) weeks or more, a student who withdraws during the term in accordance with the university's established procedures will receive a refund of mandatory fees, including nonresident tuition, based on the portion of the term during which the student was enrolled. No student withdrawing after the 60 percent point in the term will be entitled to a refund of any mandatory fees or nonresident tuition. For state-supported non-standard terms or courses of less than four (4) weeks, no refunds of mandatory fees and nonresident tuition will be made unless a student cancels registration or drops all classes prior to the first day in accordance with the university's established procedures and deadlines.

Students will also receive a refund of mandatory fees, including nonresident tuition, under the following circumstances:

  • The fees were assessed or collected in error;
  • The course for which the fees were assessed or collected was cancelled by the university;
  • The university makes a delayed decision that the student was not eligible to enroll in the term for which mandatory fees were assessed and collected and the delayed decision was not due to incomplete or inaccurate information provided by the student; or
  • The student was activated for compulsory military service.

Students who are not entitled to a refund as described above may petition the university for a refund demonstrating exceptional circumstances.  A university designee may authorize a refund if he or she determines that the fees and tuition were not earned by the university.

Fees and Debts Owed to the University

Should a student or former student fail to pay a fee or a debt owed to the institution, including tuition and student charges, the institution may "withhold permission to register, to use facilities for which a fee is authorized to be charged, to receive services, materials, food or merchandise or any combination of the above from any person owing debt" until the debt is paid (see Title 5, California Code of Regulations, Sections 42380 and 42381).

Prospective students who register for courses offered by the university are obligated for the payment of charges and fees associated with registration for those courses. Failure to cancel registration in any course for an academic term prior to the first day of the academic term gives rise to an obligation to pay student charges and fees including any tuition and processing fees for the reservation of space in the course.

The institution may withhold permission to register or to receive official transcripts of grades or other services offered by the institution from anyone owing fees or another debt to the institution. The institution may also report the debt to a credit bureau, offset the amount due against any future state tax refunds due the student, refer the debt to an outside collection agency and/or charge the student actual and reasonable collection costs, including reasonable attorney fees if litigation is necessary, in collecting any amount not paid when due.

If a person believes he or she does not owe all or part of an asserted unpaid obligation, that person may contact the campus business office. The business office, or another office on campus to which the business office may refer the person, will review all pertinent information provided by the person and available to the campus and will advise the person of its conclusions.

For more information or questions, contact Director of Accounting Services, Deletta Anderson, at (909) 537-5153 or dranders@csusb.edu.

Federal Refund Policy

Effective September 1, 2000, federal financial aid regulations are very strict concerning dropping classes after receiving Federal Grant Aid. Students are expected to complete a minimum number of units per term. By dropping all classes prior to the 60% mark of the term, students will owe a repayment based on a chart of percentages available in the Financial Aid Office. Once a repayment has been calculated, students have 30 days to repay the funds.

Federal financial aid regulations also state that students may not pay a prior debt with future financial aid. This means that students must repay the amount due prior to receiving future financial aid. Before deciding to drop classes, students should meet with a Financial Aid Advisor in the Financial Aid Office in University Hall to make an appointment with a financial aid advisor. The advisor will calculate the expected repayment of federal grant funds and will explain options.
