The CSU system makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in posted 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 has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees.

Special Note about Military Tuition Assistance:

Effective September 2014, the College of Continuing Education ceased participation in the Military Tuition Assistance program. Due to lack of state and federal reimbursement, it is not possible to waive fees for veterans and their dependents in programs administered through the College of Continuing Education.

Veterans and their dependents may continue to use waivers toward state-support programs offered during traditional academic year terms (fall and spring).

Late Fee

A $25 late registration fee will be applied to courses added starting June 1st for the first 6-week session (6W1) and the 12-week session (12W), and July 13th for the second 6-week session (6W2).
