Important Information Regarding Registration Fees

The California State University (CSU) Board of Trustees sets tuition costs. The CSU system said instruction on all 23 CSU campuses, including Humboldt, is being conducted via hybrid, virtual and in-person (as exceptions) on a temporary basis to ensure that students continue their education and maintain their progress toward degree completion despite the current public health crisis. Tuition will therefore not be refunded.

Mandatory fees and tuition will not be discounted or reimbursed. Campus mandatory fees are not subject to refund except in very limited circumstances because they generally cover fixed and ongoing expenses and costs that the university continues to incur during the pandemic to finance, maintain and operate student facilities and programs (many of which remain available to students via remote access). Examples of these costs include but are not limited to ongoing administrative and overhead costs such as student government programs, academic retention and support, progress toward degree completion, employee wages and benefits, expenses for utilities, repair and maintenance, and payment of financing and long-term debt obligations for some facilities. 

Students pay campus mandatory fees regardless of whether they are a full-time student, part-time student, online student or a student studying abroad – and even if they do not expect to ever use the programs or facilities they support. We hope that students understand that if they want the facilities and programs to be available to them now and in the future, they must, of course, be financially supported and maintained during the pandemic.  

The university does have a process for students to request a refund for tuition and mandatory fees based on special circumstances. These special circumstances include tuition and fees that were assessed or collected in error; the course for which Tuition and Fees were assessed or collected was canceled by the university; the university makes a decision that the student was not eligible to enroll in the term for which tuition and fees were assessed or collected; or the student was activated for mandatory military service. If you believe you can demonstrate exceptional circumstances warranting a refund, you may petition in accordance with the refund and petition guidelines.
