Fees for 2013-2014

*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.

Students need approximately $12,000.00 for all expenses through the first week of school. Travelers checks should be used as they can be cashed immediately.

  • Expenses are to be paid separately; Insurance, Fees/Tuition, Housing, Books, etc.
  • DO NOT bring one (1) check for all expenses.
  • Books and living expenses are an estimate only.
  • If you plan to bring dependents with you to the United States, the financial statement must show an additional $3,000 for each dependent. A spouse and children are the only allowable dependents.
