Step 5—Pay Basic Tuition and Fees

The Board of Trustees approved a tuition increase. Details about the increase can be found at

Basic tuition and fees are due a few weeks before your registration date. Students from outside California must pay their additional nonresident tuition before the first day of classes.

You will receive an email in early June telling you to go to “My Registration” in your SDSU WebPortal for your registration date and fee payment information. Pay your fees by your fee payment deadline using the Student Account Services website in order to register on your assigned registration date. After your first semester, you are responsible for checking your WebPortal for this information.

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).

If you are eligible for financial aid basic tuition and fee payment postponement, you may delay payment. You can determine your eligibility for financial aid fee payment postponement by accessing “My Registration” in the SDSU WebPortal. When your financial aid is disbursed, amounts due for basic tuition and fees and housing will be deducted automatically from the amount you receive. If your aid is unavailable or insufficient to cover all of your fees, you are responsible for paying your fees.

Any unpaid fees or additional fees incurred, due to lab fees or units added, will be billed to you after the schedule adjustment deadline. Student Account Services will send you an email directing you to the Student Account Services website so that you can download and pay your balance. It is a good idea to check your student account (select “Online Student Account Services”) every few weeks in case you do not receive an email. The Billing Statement Dates schedule is located on the Student Account Services website.
