Fees and Refunds

Tuition & Registration Fees

All students are required to pay tuition and registration fees. Additionally, nonresident, foreign-visa and graduate professional business students are required to pay per unit tuition and/or fees. Fees for auditing courses are the same as for those receiving credit for a course. Extensions and/or winter session students, resident or otherwise, pay tuition fees appropriate to the course administered through the College of Continuing Education.

The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Tuition 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 initial tuition fee payments are made, to increase, or modify any listed tuition fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester has begun. All CSU listed tuition fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees.

Fees are payable based on the term registration date. Payments may be made by check, cash, money order, Visa, American Express, MasterCard, or Discover credit cards.

*Please note that credit cards/debit card payments must be paid online.

The following reflects applicable system wide fees for semester campuses. These rates are subject to change.

Refund Regulations

Bursar's Office
Lassen Hall 1003
(916) 278-6736

Refund of Mandatory Registration Fees Including Nonresident Tuition

Regulations governing the refund of mandatory fees, including nonresident tuition, for students enrolling at the California State University are included in Section 41802 of Title 5, California Code of Regulations. For purposes of the refund policy, mandatory fees are defined as those systemwide and campus fees that are required to be paid in order to enroll in state-supported academic programs at the California State University. Refunds of fees and tuition charges for self-support, special session, and extended education programs or courses at the California State University are governed by a separate policy established by the University, available at http://www.csus.edu/aba/Student-Financial-Services/fees_deadlines_refunds.html

In order to receive a full refund of mandatory fees, less an administrative charge established by the campus, including nonresident tuition, a student must cancel registration or drop all courses prior to the first day of instruction for the term. Information on procedures and deadlines for canceling registration and dropping classes is available http://www.csus.edu/aba/Student-Financial-Services/fees_deadlines_refunds.html.

For state-supported semesters, quarters, and non-standard terms or courses of four (4) weeks or more, a student who withdraws during the term in accordance with the University’s established procedures or drops all courses prior to the campus-designated drop period will receive a refund of mandatory fees, including nonresident tuition, based on the portion of the term during which the student was enrolled. No student withdrawing after the 60 percent point in the term will be entitled to a refund of any mandatory fees or nonresident tuition.

A student who, within the campus designated drop period and in accordance with the campus procedures, drops units resulting in a lower tuition and/or mandatory fee obligation shall be entitled to a refund of applicable tuition and mandatory fees less an administrative charge established by the campus.

For state-supported non-standard terms or courses of less than four (4) weeks, no refunds of mandatory fees and nonresident tuition will be made unless a student cancels registration or drops all classes, in accordance with the University’s established procedures and deadlines, prior to the first day of instruction for state-supported non-standard terms or courses or prior to the first meeting for courses of less than four (4) weeks.

Students will also receive a refund of mandatory fees, including nonresident tuition, under the following circumstances:

  • The fees were assessed or collected in error;
  • The University canceled the course for which the fees were assessed or collected;
  • The University makes a delayed decision that the student was not eligible to enroll in the term for which mandatory fees were assessed and collected and the delayed decision was not due to incomplete or inaccurate information provided by the student; or
  • The student was activated for compulsory military service.

Students who are not entitled to a refund as described above may petition the university for a refund demonstrating exceptional circumstances and the chief financial officer of the University or designee may authorize a refund if he or she determines that the fees and tuition were not earned by the University.

Information concerning any aspect of the refund of registration fees may be obtained from:

Elena Larson, Bursar
Student Account Services
6000 J Street, Lassen Hall 1003
Sacramento, CA 95819
Phone (916) 278-6736.

Refunds

The Application Fee, Installment Fee, Reenrollment Fee, and Late Registration Fee are NOT refundable.

Refunds will first be applied to any outstanding debt owed to the University. Refunds of checks, echecks, or debit payment will be subject to a waiting period of 10 business days. International payments will be subject to a waiting period of 20 business days. Students who OFFICIALLY withdraw or drop units within the published deadlines do not need to complete an Application for Refund for resident and non-resident fees as refunds will automatically be issued.

Students who believe they have extenuating circumstances that warrant a refund after the published deadlines must submit a Refund Application with a complete explanation of the circumstances and any supporting documentation to the Bursar's Office.

Withdrawing from all classes

Students who officially withdraw from the University prior to the first day of instruction will receive a 100% refund of Graduate Business Professional fees, tuition fees, campus fees, and non-resident tuition (minus a $10 processing fee). After this date students are eligible to receive a pro-rated refund only if withdrawing from all classes. If registration fees have not been paid in full at the time of withdrawal, the balance due will be pro-rated.

Beginning with the first day of instruction through the 60% date of the semester, refunds will be on a pro-rata basis using the official withdrawal date. Students are not eligible to receive a refund for withdrawing after the 60% date. The pro-rata refund will be calculated by the number of CALENDAR days from the first day of the semester to the date of withdrawal, regardless of when a student enrolled or when the course began.

To officially withdraw you must complete and file a Withdrawal Form at the Student Services Center in the Lassen Hall 1st floor lobby.

Drop in Units

Students who drop from full to half time by the end of the second week of the semester are eligible to receive a 100% refund of the difference in tuition fees, minus a $10 processing fee. Non-resident students who drop units by the end of the second week of the semester are eligible to receive a 100% refund of the difference of non-resident tuition minus a $10.00 processing fee. Resident and Non-resident students who drop from full to half-time after these dates are not eligible to receive a refund. It is the student’s responsibility to become familiar with policies and procedures concerning add/drop and refund deadlines.

Resident students who drop units from full-time to half-time and non-resident students who drop units by the campus add/drop deadline will receive a refund of the difference in tuition fees and/or applicable non-resident tuition. Please note that the processing of drop-in-unit refunds will not begin until after the first two weeks of the term. If you received financial aid (including loans), your refund will not be considered until after the first four weeks of the term.

Non-Credit/CEU Refund

Extension course tuition refund applications must be submitted to the University's College of Continuing Education prior to the first meeting of the class for a full refund, less a $10 processing fee. If a student withdraws on or after the first class session, the following applies:

Meetings Full Refund 65% Refund Less $10 No Refund Less $10
9 or more Prior to 1st class Before 3rd class After 3rd class
5-8 Prior to 1st class Before 2nd Class After 2nd class
4 or less Prior to 1st class None None

Special Session Academic Credit Refund

A $10 processing fee is charged on all Special Session tuition refunds. Refund applications must be submitted to the University's College of Continuing Education prior to the first meeting of the class for a full refund. If a student withdraws on or after the first class session, the following applies:

Obtaining approval to drop a class does not grant you an automatic refund of course fees.

Refunds are still issued per your program’s refund policy. Generally, refunds are allowed according to the following timeline:

  • If you drop before the class starts, you will get a full refund minus a $10 processing fee.
  • If you drop any time within the first 25% of the course, including the first day of class, you will get a 65% refund minus a $10 processing fee. If you have not paid for your course yet, you will still owe the other 35% of your tuition. This fee will remain due on your account.
  • If you drop after the first 25% of the class has elapsed, you will not receive a refund. If you have not paid for your course, all fees will remain due on your account.

If you dropped after the full or partial refund deadline and would like to request a refund, please contact your program coordinator.

Not attending or not logging into your class does not remove your responsibility to pay your course fees if you are still officially enrolled.

Parking Refunds

Parking fee refund applications will be honored only if the student returns the parking permit with the refund application. The amount of parking fee refund will be determined by the following schedule:

Fall/Spring

Time Limit Amount of Refund
Before first day of class 100% of fee
1-30 calendar days 75% of fee
31-60 calendar days 50% of fee
61-90 calendar days 25% of fee

Financial Aid Refunds/Return of Title IV

Student Service Center
Lassen Hall Lobby
(916) 278-6554

A student who receives aid and withdraws, drops units, is expelled, etc., during or after the first day of enrollment will be reviewed in accordance with the Federal Title IV Student Financial Assistance Return of Title IV. The federal regulations require that Sacramento State provides for a refund using the pro-rata calculation if the student withdrew on or before 60 percent of the enrollment period.

Students are required to “officially” withdraw from the University. In the event that the student’s progress does not reflect attendance, the unofficial withdrawal date used will be the mid-point of the term.

A repayment situation may occur when a student receives aid and ceases attendance. The Federal Formula will determine if the disbursement was greater than the student’s expenses up to the withdrawal date. The student must repay any excess amount.

Tuition, Fees and Debts Owed to the Institution

Should a student or former student fail to pay a fee or a debt owed to the institution, including tuition and student charges, 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 a debt" until the debt is paid (see Title 5, California Code of Regulations, Sections 42380 and 42381).

Prospective students who register for courses offered by the university are obligated for the payment of charges and 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 charges and fees including any tuition for the reservation of space in the course.

The institution may withhold permission to register or to receive official transcripts of grades or other services offered by the institution from anyone owing fees or another debt to the institution. The institution may also report the debt to a credit bureau, offset the amount due against any future state tax refunds due the student, refer the debt to an outside collection agency and/or charge the student actual and reasonable collection costs, including reasonable attorney fees if litigation is necessary, in collecting any amount not paid when due.

If a person believes he or she does not owe all or part of an asserted unpaid obligation, that person may contact:

Elena Larson, Bursar
Bursar's Office, 6000 J Street
Lassen Hall 1003
Sacramento, CA 95819
Phone (916) 278-6736

The SFSC, or another office on campus to which the SFSC may refer the person, will review all pertinent information, provided by the person and available to the campus and will advise the person of its conclusions.

Cancellation of Registration, Dropping Units or Withdrawal from the Institution

Students who find it necessary to cancel their registration or to withdraw from all classes after enrolling for any academic term are required to follow the University’s official withdrawal procedures. Failure to follow formal University procedures may result in an obligation to pay fees as well as the assignment of failing grades in all courses and the need to apply for readmission before being permitted to enroll in another academic term. Information on canceling registration and withdrawal procedures is available from the Office of the Registrar at (916) 278-8088.

Students who receive financial aid funds must consult with the Financial Aid Office prior to withdrawing from the university regarding any required return or repayment of grant or loan assistance received for that academic term or payment period. Students who have received financial aid and withdraw from the institution during the academic term or payment period may need to return or repay some or all of the funds received, which may result in a debt owed to the institution.
