California State University System Tuition and Fees Structure

California State University System Tuition and Fees Structure

All students enrolled at a CSU campus pay a systemwide tuition fee, in addition to campus mandatory fees. The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. 

CSU Tuition

​Set by the Board of Trustees, systemwide tuition is charged at the same rate per academic year at each CSU campus.

Student Success Fees

Student Success Fees are campus-based and campus-controlled fees designed to enhance the quality of academic programs and the student experience on a given campus. Each campus’ Student Success Fee is unique and reflects the priorities of that campus.

Process

The CSU has implemented a detailed process to guide campuses in the creation, revision, and repeal of Student Success Fees.

From consultation through approval, oversight, and accountability, the process ensures campuses maintain a rigorous procedure that involves students, faculty, staff, presidents, and the Chancellor
