Tuition and Mandatory Fees
Across campus, CSUN faculty and staff are preparing to offer a full slate of impactful academic offerings through high-quality virtual learning, as well as the necessary modifications for those limited courses and labs that are offered face-to-face. Regardless of format, CSUN students – both new and returning – will enjoy a robust and vibrant educational experience and momentum toward life-changing degrees and certificates.
Since CSUN is providing students full academic credit for courses taken and delivered by alternative means, no portion of tuition or mandatory fees will be reduced, consistent with California Education Code.
Mandatory fees cover a wide range of fixed and ongoing expenses and costs that the university must incur in order to maintain and operate its facilities and services. As mandatory fees are not “user” fees, the funding from these fees makes sure each of these campus areas will be able to seamlessly transition to face-to-face operations when we are able to safely do so.
