  • Course Fees

    The published fees for each course are the same, regardless of whether the course is being taken for credit or if a student is auditing. Winter Session is self-supporting and receives no funding on either the state or local level.

    The flat rate fee for all courses is $275 per unit for Winter 2018.

    Non-CSULB students pay at time of registration.

    Pay Your Fees (CSULB Students Only)

    Your fees are due 30 days from the date you register for classes or by Wednesday, December 13, 2017, whichever comes first. If you register after this date, your fees are due within 24 hours.

    Once in person registration begins, you must pay at the time of enrollment.

    You may make a payment before registering (i.e., a deposit), if you choose.

    You are encouraged to make the payment immediately to confirm your registration requests.

    Note: Failure to confirm your registration request with payment by the deadline will result in cancellation of your class schedule.

    Returned Checks

    A $20 fee will be charged for any dishonored check paid toward the student's university account (insufficient funds or stop payment). The amount of the original dishonored check plus the $20 fee becomes a financial obligation of the student to the university.

    A Stop Payment Order on a check does not constitute an official withdrawal from a course, nor does it relieve the student from the financial obligation for fees incurred by registering for courses.

    If an obligation continues to be unpaid beyond the response period of a demand for payment, the student's name may be submitted to an outside collection agent or to the State of California Franchise Tax Board. If submitted to the Franchise Tax Board, the state has the authority to withhold amounts owed to the University from any tax refund to which the student may have been otherwise entitled.

    Company or Organization Fee Payment

    A student whose company or organization wishes to be billed for that student's Winter Session fees must contact the Student Accounts Services Office (BH-155). The company/organization must have a contract with the University for this purpose prior to registration.

    Student Financial Services Office Hours:

    Monday-Friday          9 am-5 pm

    For information call (562) 985-8280 during the service hours indicated above.

    International students who wish to have their Winter fees billed to their company or organization should contact the Center for International Education (BH-201) at (562) 985-4106.

    Rollover of Fees

    Students may transfer fees to another Winter Session course without penalty prior to the session start date.

    Once the session begins, you cannot swap courses without penalty. Your fees are subject to the refund policy if you drop, then add a course.

    Students are required to obtain approval of the instructor for add/drop activity once courses begin.
