Cancellation Policy

The Cancellation Policy for CSULB Housing Applications (if initial payment and license has been submitted) reads as follows:

If you cancel for any reason, you will forfeit the $400 NON-REFUNDABLE initial fee.

If you cancel less than 30 days before the start date on your license (August 23, 2014 for 2014-2015 Academic Year applicants), there will be a pro-rated penalty of approximately $28 per day added to the $400 NON-REFUNDABLE fee.

For example, if you cancel on July 29, 2014, which is 6 days after July 23, 2014 (or, 24 days before the contract begins), you will be charged approximately $168 ($28 x 6days), in addition to the $400 fee, making it a total of $568 as your cancellation fee.

Once you have moved into the residence halls and have been approved to cancel your license agreement, a cancellation fee of $200 plus any additional housing charges will be applied to all cancellations regardless of why you cancel.
