Fees and Finances – Basics

How Much to Pay

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.

Here are the Basic Fees, Tuition, Mandatory Additional Fees and Miscellaneous Course Fees for Matriculated Students for Summer registration.

If you register after May 15, your fees are due at the time of registration. You are encouraged to make payment immediately to confirm your registration requests.

If you add classes or are moved from a waitlist into classes and as a result owe additional fees, your payment is due within 30 days, or by May 15, 2013, whichever date comes first.

Failure to fully pay the required fees may result in cancellation of your classes. If a partial amount is owed, individual classes will be cancelled until your account is settled cancelling the most recent adds first.

If you will not be attending classes, it is your responsibility to drop your classes. Financial Aid recipients may be issued a fee deferment which may prevent the automatic cancellation of classes. If it is determined you are not eligible for financial aid, all tuition and fees remain your responsibility.

Check your account statement at MyCSULB for your payment due date. If payment is not made by your due date, a hold will be placed on your account preventing enrollment in Summer 2014 and Fall 2013 classes, and preventing transcripts and other services. If you register after May 15, 2013, you will NOT be cancelled from classes and will incur fees for any classes you do not drop.
