Summer Term 2012 Tuition Fee Schedules

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.

The Chancellor has approved four summer term fee schedules that are applicable for campuses running a state-supported summer term. Campuses may implement the applicable summer term fee schedule of their choice. Summer term fees are based on the preceding spring term fee rates. Fee rate increases are effective at the beginning of the fall term. Campuses are reminded that summer term fee revenues will continue to be calculated based on the standard tuition fee schedule regardless of the summer term fee schedule adopted by the campus. Students are advised to consult Campus Summer Term Course Catalogs to determine the fee schedule in use on their campus.

Summer Term 2012 Student University Fee Schedules are authorized in accordance with the Board of Trustees Resolutions, per the following websites http://www.calstate.edu/BOT/Resolutions/Jul11.pdf and http://www.calstate.edu/BOT/Resolutions/Nov2011.pdf
