Tuition & Fees*

A Message on Student Fees
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 fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory system-wide fees, are subject to change 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, or the Presidents, as appropriate. Changes in mandatory system-wide fees will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028 - 66028.6 of the Education Code).

As a campus partner, the tuition is set from the College of Continuing and Professional Education and is charged per unit. We do not distinguish between California residents and non-California residents as tuition rates are the same for both.

Tuition rate per unit: $725

Total tuition program costs: $21,750

*Please note the above mentioned tuition and fees do not include the cost of textbooks or course related items.

Financial Assistance Options

There are several financial assistance options available for students completing their MS Accounting degree. 

Financial Aid 

The CSUDH Office of Financial Aid administers financial assistance programs to assist students in financing their educational costs. Costs of attendance should not be confused with tuition costs. The Office of Financial Aid budgets expenses related to pursuing the degree taking into consideration items such as housing, textbooks, etc. 

Students must minimally enroll in six (6) units per semester to be eligible for financial aid.

To apply for Financial Aid funding, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®)  Please note: students must reapply for financial aid for each new academic year.  

Types of FAFSA Financial Aid for which MS Accounting Students are considered include the following.

Federal Student Loans

The U.S. Department of Education offers low-interest loans to eligible students to help cover the cost of higher education. Eligible students must be admitted, in good academic standing, and enrolled at least half-time (6 units) in a program leading to a degree, teaching credential, or approved certificate.

If you are eligible for a Federal Student Loan, as a graduate student, you can only qualify for an Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan, so you are responsible for all the interest that accrues on your loan. The federal maximum a graduate student may be eligible to borrow with an Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan is up to $20,500 for the academic year. For complete information, visit:

To apply for funding, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). The FAFSA form must be submitted by June 30 at 11:59 p.m. CT. Please note: students must reapply for financial aid for each new academic year.

Based on the information provided on your FAFSA application, the CSUDH Financial Aid Office will determine your eligibility and the actual loan amount you may borrow each academic year. If deemed eligible, funding will come from Federal Direct Stafford Loans- The William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program. These funds must be REPAID, and you will repay a Federal Direct Stafford Loan to the U.S. Department of Education.

Financial Aid Disbursements Schedule 

Financial Aid disbursements for eligible students will be processed according to the CSUDH Office of Financial Aid schedule. The Office of Financial Aid disburses funds according to the University academic calendar and timeliness of financial aid document submission.
