Early Start Program Fees 2017 (2018 Fee Updates Coming Soon)


Important Notice: Fees for the summer term are based on the number of units in which you enroll. Summer Early Start fees are discounted from regular quarterly rates, making it very cost effective. Fees are subject to change based on fee increase approval.
**If you are a student completing Early Start at another CSU campus and not your home campus, make sure that you have included the campus you will be completing Early Start on your FAFSA to be considered for summer term financial aid at that campus. To update this information just login to your FAFSA and make the necessary changes. Please note that changes to your FAFSA take a few weeks to process **



Valid parking permits must be displayed by all vehicles 7 days a week. For more information about summer parking and how to purchase a parking permit, visit Parking & Transportation Services.
