Fees & Payments

Thanks to flat-rate, per-unit pricing and a 4-unit maximum course load, you’ll always know exactly what you’re going to pay for your Winter Session courses, which allows you to plan ahead. Please visit the Student Financial Services website for detailed information about fees and payments.

How much does it cost to enroll in Winter Session classes?

Winter Session courses are charged at $366 per unit, plus applicable campus-based fees. TITAN registration online allows you to register for classes first, and then make a payment. If you do not pay your balance in full by the due date, you will be disenrolled from all of your Winter Session 2018 classes. 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).

What are my payment options?

Fee payments are accepted both online and in-person at UH-180.
Online options include:

Credit card
Debit card

In-person options include:

Personal check

  • You will not receive a billing statement for your registration fees. You may view your student account balance at any time by logging on to Titan Online via your student portal.
  • The University is not responsible for U.S. Postal Service delays; postmarks are not considered.
  • You may be subject to disenrollment from your class if your payment is not received by the due date. Be sure to check your email on a regular basis.
  • A $25.00 Late Registration Fee will be assessed for students who register on or after the first day of each session.

Non-CSUF Students

Through Open University (OU), people not currently admitted to CSUF can enroll in classes and earn college credit. This includes former CSUF students, CSUF alumni, disqualified students, members of the general public, and those waiting for admission to the university.
