Resident Undergraduate Student Fees Graphs

Systemwide Student Fees are paid by full-time undergraduate students enrolled for two semesters or three quarters.

Total Fees include all mandatory systemwide and campus-based charges (health, student union, etc.) for full-time students.

Constant dollar amounts are calculated here using the Higher Education Price Index (HEPI) to remove the effects of price inflation over time. The fees are calculated by dividing the base-year's HEPI value by the HEPI index value for each year, then multiplying the result by the appropriate year's fee. The 2010 HEPI value is a preliminary forecast.
