A Message on Student Fees
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).
The Board of Trustees has approved a tuition increase at their March 21-22, 2017 board meeting. Details about the approved fees can be found at www.calstate.edu/tuition-increase.

To provide better service, Student e-mail is one of the primary means of communication to all CSUDH students by the Offices of Admissions, Financial Aid, Records & Registration, and Student Financial Services. Messages regarding important deadlines, missing documents and other correspondences will be sent to your official CSUDH e-mail account.
Students can request additional information by contacting Student Financial Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (310) 243-3780.

Students are fully responsible for meeting the payment deadline. You will not receive a bill. Failure to make a full payment or establish a payment plan by the deadline may result in disenrollment from courses. Account balances are available through MyCSUDH.
Students who have been awarded and have accepted financial aid for Fall 2016 sufficient to cover fees in full will not be disenrolled. Those students for whom disbursed aid does not cover their fees, who have been determined to be ineligible for aid, or have a past due balance, may be disenrolled for nonpayment.
Fees may be paid three ways: online, in person, or by mail.
To pay by mail, payment must be received in Student Financial Services, Cashier's Office by the due date(s) as noted above. A postmark does not establish the payment date.

Students whose checks are returned by their bank are subject to disenrollment and collection efforts will be initiated to recover the funds. Holds will be placed on their account.
Students receiving third party reimbursements must submit their contracts to Accounting Services, Accounts Receivable Department, WH A430, immediately after registration. If the third party does not make payment to the University by June 23, 2016 it will be the responsibility of the student to make payment in full to the University. Failure to do so will result in a financial hold on the student's account.
In certain limited instances, some or all fees shown may be waived. Consult the 2015-2016 University Catalog for more details.
