If I am a CSUN student member of the Student Recreation Center, will I receive a refund?

In light of the evolving circumstances related to COVID-19, and to be consistent with campus refund policies and Title 5 regulations, the CSU has established a systemwide framework to guide local campus decisions concerning the refund of fees charged by the campus through the Interim CSU Refund Policies for Tuition and Fees.

All campuses plan to continue for the foreseeable future to provide academic credit for courses taken and delivered by alternative means, therefore refunds of tuition and other campus mandatory fees are not warranted per the CSU refund policies for tuition and fees.

Tuition and other campus mandatory fees will not be refunded except as provided for by existing campus refund policies and procedures consistent with Title 5 CCR § 41802.

What if I am enrolled in Payroll Deduction for my Student Recreation Center membership?
