Application fee waivers
If the payment of an application fee presents a financial hardship, applicants can request an application fee waiver. How you submit your waiver request depends on the type of applicant you are. Freshman/First-year applicants can request a waiver within the application for admission. Transfer applicants can request a waiver after submitting their application for admission.
Application fee refunds
The $50 application fee is not refundable if an applicant is denied, withdraws their application, or changes their mind about attending CSU. The application fee can not be applied to tuition and fees if the student enrolls.
Applicants who inadvertently pay the application fee more than once or who pay and then are approved for an application fee waiver will be refunded accordingly. No refund request is necessary.
