The Proposition 30 ballot initiative was approved by voters in the November 6, 2012 election. As a result, the California State University will implement the tuition fee contingency plan as previously approved by the Board of Trustees. The California State University will roll back tuition fees to 2011-12 fee levels, retroactive to the fall 2012 term. For further information regarding tuition fees, please visit the following website: http://www.calstate.edu/budget/.
The applicable reduction in tuition fees and graduate business professional fees for fall 2012 will be calculated and a credit will be posted to your account no later than November 28, 2012. Any credit balance on your account as a result of this adjustment may be applied to any balances due, including spring 2013 fees.
Any applicable financial aid adjustment for 2012-13 will be reflected on your student award no later than November 26, 2012. Depending on the details of an individual’s financial aid package, the fee reduction may be matched by an equal reduction in a financial aid grant, in which case no refund will be due to the student. You may receive further communication regarding your specific financial aid status from the Financial Aid office.
Please be sure to regularly monitor your Student Center page for the fee adjustments. If you object to having a credit balance on your account or you are not enrolling for the spring 2013 term, you may request a refund check, less any amounts due on your account. Refund requests must be submitted using the appropriate forms within 10 business days from the date of this notification. The “Student Fee and Tuition Refund request refund can be found on your mycsumb dashboard under the Student Forms Section. If you wish to sign up for direct deposit, please log in to your Student Center page and click on the Direct Deposit link located in the Finance section of the page.
