arrow Previous bar Next arrow

(a) Time of Payment.

Nonresident tuition shall be collected at the time of registration except:

(1) When a student loan or other financial assistance from a student aid program or a training program recognized by the campus has been delayed and there is reasonable proof acceptable to the chief fiscal officer of the campus or designee that the funds will be forthcoming; or

(2) When changes are made during the change of program period which result in a higher fee category than paid at the time of registration, in which case the additional fee required shall, subject to (1) above, be paid immediately upon demand by the campus; or

(3) As provided in Section 41901.5.

(b) Amount.

The nonresident tuition fee shall be based on:

(1) the average cost of the net state Support Budget programs of Instruction and Academic Support, which shall be computed annually based on the Board of Trustees' Budget submitted to the Governor. The average cost for this purpose shall be computed by adding the entire net state support at the campus level for the Instruction and Academic Support programs, and dividing the result by the number of full-time equivalent students projected in the Board of Trustees budget request for the California State University; or

(2) the amount stipulated in the Governor's Budget, if that amount is greater than the amount in subdivision (b) (1); or

(3) the amount stipulated in the budget as finally enacted if that amount is greater than the amount in subdivision (b) (1) and different from the amount in subdivision (b) (2.)

The schedule of nonresident tuition fees shall be issued annually by the Chancellor to be effective with the fall term. These amounts, as well as all other fees which the Board of Trustees is authorized by law to charge, are subject to change without notice.
