The Open University fee for Fall 2019 is $253 per unit. If
you are 60 years of age or older, you may “audit” (attend but
receive no credit for) an Open University course for $65 per
unit. Payment must be made by check, money order or credit card.
The $253 per unit fee covers the cost of instructional support,
enrollment and record keeping only. Financial aid is not
available. Waivers are not accepted. A $25 late fee is applied to
registrations submitted after the deadline.
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.
You may purchase weekly or semester permits in Napa Hall once you
