On May 29, 2013, all of the department home pages under the Division of Student Affairs will have a fresh new look. You will still be able to visit each department's website address, but you will notice a new "front door" — a home page with layout and design upgrades.
In keeping with President Dianne F. Harrison's goal to "create consistent and engaging communications," the home page upgrade meets the university's Web-One standards and is part of ongoing efforts to improve Web accessibility, navigation and consistency throughout the Division of Student Affairs.
Soon after the May 29 launch of the new home pages, each Student Affairs department will undergo a full-scale website redesign, so that all of the subpages will match the look and layout of the home pages.
The upgraded websites will launch individually over the coming months. More information will be posted here once the launch dates are finalized.
The Proposition 30 ballot initiative was approved by voters in the November 6, 2012 election. As a result, the California State University will implement the tuition fee contingency plan as previously approved by the Board of Trustees. The California State University will roll back tuition fees to 2011-12 fee levels, retroactive to the fall 2012 term. For further information regarding tuition fees, please visit the following website: http://www.calstate.edu/budget/.
The applicable reduction in tuition and graduate business professional fees for fall 2012 will be calculated and a credit will be posted to your account no later than December 14, 2012. The credit may be applied to any balances due on your account. Any credit remaining as a result of this adjustment will be refunded to you.
The fastest, most convenient way to receive your refund is through our direct deposit program. We highly encourage you to enroll in the direct deposit program if you have not already done so. Enrollment instructions for direct deposit can be found at: http://www-admn.csun.edu/ucs/docs/erefund.pdf.
Any applicable financial aid adjustment for 2012-13 will be reflected on your student award no later than December 14, 2012. Depending on the details of an individual's financial aid package, the fee reduction may be matched by an equal reduction in a financial aid grant, in which case no refund will be due to the student. You may receive further communication regarding your specific financial aid status from the Financial Aid office: http://www.csun.edu/financialaid/basics/affects_prop30.php.
Please be sure to regularly monitor your self-service account in the myNorthridge Portal for the fee adjustments.
If you have any questions regarding your student account, please contact Student Accounting at phone number (818) 677-8000, option 2 or email University_Cash_Services@csun.edu.

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.
