*These campuses are on the quarter system. Three quarters (Fall, Winter, Spring) are equivalent to one academic year.
Detailed budgets for each campus can be found on the web at Student Academic Services but these are subject to change for the upcoming academic year. Due to exchange rate fluctuations and cost of living increases in California, it is advisable to provide more funding than the required amounts listed above.
IMPORTANT: While the CSU systemwide state fees are waived for exchange students, you will be required to pay campus-based fees, if applicable, which cover campus activities and services which can range up to $3500 (or more depending on the campus) for the year.
Exchange students are required to purchase and maintain health insurance that meets or exceeds the limits required by the host CSU campus. Costs vary per campus and can be up to $2000 for the academic year. Most campuses require that exchange students purchase their insurance. Exact costs for 2018-19 are not yet available. Refer to University website for more information.
