Important Notice Regarding Fees

Through an Alternative Consultation Process (ACP), a group of campus stakeholders composed predominantly of CSUSB students determined that effective Fall 2015, Campus Category II Fees will be adjusted using the Higher Education Price Index (HEPI) on an annual basis. Yearly increases are not to exceed 4% of prior year HEPI. The Associated Students Incorporated fee and the ID fee will not be impacted. 

The HEPI inflation index for academic year 2018/2019 is 3.7% which will increase Campus Category II fees by $37.174 for the Academic Year and $7.19 for Summer 2019. This includes the following Campus Fees:

  • Santos Manual Student Union Fee
  • Student Recreation & Fitness Center Fee
  • Student Health & Psychological Counseling Center Program and Facilities Fee
  • Student Success Initiative Fee
  • Instructionally Related Programs Fee
  • Mandatory Student Orientation Fee


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).

Please monitor your student account regularly through MyCoyote Student Center.

Please check your CSUSB email account regularly for updates about Tuition fees and registration due dates.

Students with an outstanding past due balance will have a hold and not be able to enroll in classes.
