CSU is a University on the rise and it’s an exciting time to become a student.

Renowned professors, student success initiatives and a vibrant campus life in the heart of a dynamic city combine to create an unmatched engaged learning experience that will propel you to graduation and into a rewarding career.

We’ve created this site to help you start your CSU experience off on the right foot. Bookmark this page and reference it often as it contains anything and everything you’ll need to know about attending CSU before your first day of classes.

Remember – your first step to become an official CSU student is to notify the University of your intent to attend.  To do so, simply log on to CampusNet, click on the Applicant tab and choose Yes to accept your admission. 


ENROLLMENT FEE

If you are admitted as a freshman for summer or fall 2017, you must pay the enrollment fee to save your spot at CSU. Beginning early spring 2017, you can pay the $120 fee online. It covers orientation for you and up to two guests and your Viking ID card. The fee is due July 1, 2017. We recommend paying early to get the best dates for orientation. We will offer refunds until May 1. 2017. Students who have limited financial resources and meet the NACAC requirements may request that the fee be deferred until the beginning of the fall semester.
