Cost of Attendance

The charts below list the approximate costs per semester for students who are California residents. For more information regarding school costs and financial aid, visit the Financial Aid & Scholarship Department website.

If you are not a California resident or if you are an international student, add $372 per unit to the fees listed below. All costs are estimates and subject to change.

The California State University 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, the CSU must reserve the right, even after initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees without notice until the date of 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.
