Returned Checks

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 fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory systemwide fees, are subject to change 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 Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate. Changes in mandatory systemwide fees 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).


Checks received for registration fees that are returned unpaid by a bank for any reason, may result in the loss of registration privileges.

If enrollment has already occurred, classes may be cancelled. Students will be required to register late and will incur a $25.00 late registration fee, in addition to a $10.00 return check charge and a $10.00 administrative late fee. Payment for returned checks and fines must be paid by cash or certified funds only.
