For more information on these fees, please visit the Bursar’s Office page.

Please note that fees will be charged to your account in TWO parts. The course fee charges will appear on your account the day after you register. The remaining mandatory term fees will calculate later, and may take up to a week to appear on your account. Check your Student Center for the Campus Mandatory fees due date.

The CSU system makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in posted schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees, without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by The Board of Trustees.

Special Note about Military Tuition Assistance:

Effective September 2014, the College of Continuing Education ceased participation in the Military Tuition Assistance program. Due to lack of state and federal reimbursement, it is not possible to waive fees for veterans and their dependents in programs administered through the College of Continuing Education.

Veterans and their dependents may continue to use waivers toward state-support programs offered during traditional academic year terms (fall and spring).

Late Fee

A $25 late registration fee will be applied to courses added starting May 28th for the first 6-week session (6W1) and the 12-week session (12W), and July 8th for the second 6-week session (6W2).

CCE reserves the right to discontinue, postpone or combine classes, and to change instructors. Every effort is made to accommodate our students’ academic needs. However, in the event that a class is canceled, it is automatically dropped from the students’ schedule. Students are entitled to a full refund in this case.

Financial Aid

For more information, visit the Summer Financial Aid webpage.

Summer Session fees are not deferred while awaiting a Financial Aid disbursement.  Students are responsible for paying fees by the due date to avoid being dropped for non-payment of fees.
