Fall Term 2020

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).

Cancellation for Non-Payment of Fees

Failure to pay all outstanding tuition and fees by the due date could result in cancellation of all your classes:

  • Fall 2020 tuition and fees due by August 10, 2020

You will not be cancelled if you have enough pending financial aid posted to your student account that will cover ALL your term fees. Any fee waiver, a third party authorization or HSU Installment Plan must be submitted to the Student Financial Services Office prior to the fee deadline. For registration activity after August 10, 2020, fees are due within 72 hours.
