Program Costs & Fees

Orientation Fees

All newly admitted undergraduate students will be charged a one-time, mandatory Orientation fee that will appear on your student account after class registration.


  ADMITTED for FALL 2018 - SPRING 2019

First-Year Student – San Bernardino and Palm Desert Campus $159.18*
Transfer Student – San Bernardino and Palm Desert Campus $74.18
*Fees indicate a two-day program.  

No money will be collected at the time of registration for your Orientation session or at your program. You will pay the Orientation fee through myCoyote Self Service after your class registration. All Orientation fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Administrative Fees

Change of Orientation Date

  • Your first date change, prior to a session deadline, will not be charged a fee.
  • Any additional change of date will incur a $25.00 administrative fee per change.
  • If you change your Orientation date after the session registration deadline, you will be charged a $25.00 administrative fee.

Lost Room Keys

Students attending an overnight session who lose or don't return their room or buliding keys will be charged a $25.00 fee per key. Please note that two keys are issued, therefore you will be charged $50.00 total if you lose both keys.

Fee Payment Procedures for Early Registration

It is the student's responsibility to pay all fees by the due date. All students are responsible for paying their portion of their fees by their due date; this includes Financial Aid recipients and Housing students. Fees are due on a specific date based on the date of your class registration. You can access your fee due date through myCoyote Self Service.

Students who do not pay all fees by the designated deadline MAY be administratively dropped from their courses and a $25 administrative fee will be charged. Students are responsible for dropping their courses using the myCoyote Self Service and should not assume their courses were administratively dropped.

Fees and Debts Owed To the Institution

Prospective students who register for courses offered by the university are obligated for the payment of fees associated with registration for those courses. Failure to cancel registration in any course for an academic term prior to the first day of the academic term gives rise to an obligation to pay student fees including any tuition for the reservation of space in the course.

Should a student or former student fail to pay a fee of a debt owed to the institution, the institution may 'withhold permission to register, to use facilities for which a fee is authorized to be charged, to receive services, materials, food or merchandise or any combination of the above from any person owing debt' until the debt is paid (see Title 5, California Code of Regulations, Sections 42380 and 42381).

Cancellation & Refund Policy

All Orientation fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. As a reminder, the CSUSB Enrollment Deposit is separate from the Orientation fee.
