How We Calculate Tuition and Fees

The College of Business follows the University's graduate tuition guide and additionally charges graduate differential tuition. Graduate differential tuition helps support your student experience by enhancing classroom technology through innovation, hiring highly qualified faculty, and providing advising support, assistantships, scholarships, highly equipped computer labs, and comprehensive career services.

Charges will vary, depending on the student’s actual registration, residency, and course of study. Additional University fees also may apply. Try out the University tuition and fees calculator to better understand how tuition and fees can change.

CSU reserves the right to change tuition rates without notice. Tuition rates – based on academic years – are subject to increase on an annual basis and subject to Board of Governor approval. All prices refer to U.S. currency.

All full fee-paying resident‐instruction graduate students automatically will be enrolled in and billed for CSU student health insurance. Premium information and instructions on applying for a waiver to opt out of the insurance are available for domestic students (PDF)  and international students (PDF)
