Student Fee Refund Information

Refunds (Including Non-Resident Tuition)

Total Withdrawal from University (No courses) - To receive a 100% refund of registration fees, students must withdraw from the university before the beginning of the semester.  After this point refunds are prorated, beginning with the first day of the semester and up to the 60% point of the semester. The pro-rata refund percentages can be accessed at the links below.                

Drop in Units (Still enrolled in at least one course) - To receive a refund of a drop in units from full-time to part-time, courses must be dropped before the end of Add/Drop period for the semester.  If a course is dropped after the end of the Add/Drop period, no refund will be given for that course(s). For courses less than four (4) weeks in length, no refund will be given if the course is dropped on or after the first day of class.

Prorata refund percentages can be found in the specific "Schedule of Classes" for each respective term.

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 systemwide 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 systemwide 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).
