Tuition Fees - Summer 2018

Summer Session 2018 is self-supported and administered through the College of the Extended University. To help students make progress to their degree, Cal Poly Pomona reduced tuition fees in 2016. The cost is comparable to the fall, winter and spring quarters. Taking more units will save students money.

*Information for doctoral, graduate students and credential students may be different and will be available at a later date.

*Doctoral fees are the same as the regular academic year. Visit the tuition and fees website for more information.

* Students enrolling in 699 courses are charged a $200 base tuition fee, a $50 mandatory educational support fee and auxiliary fees.

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 initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees, 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.
