Resident Student Fees Table

Resident Undergraduate Student Fees In Constant Dollars

Systemwide Student Fees are paid by full-time undergraduate students enrolled for two semesters or three quarters and includes
  • the "Educational" and "University Registration" fees for University of California (UC)
  • and the "Student Services" and "State University" fees for California State University (CSU).

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

The State Enrollment fee for Community Colleges (CCC) was initially established in 1984. Currently, it is a per-unit charge with no cap on the total. The fees in the table are calculated for a full-time student, two semesters at 15 units each.

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.
