Calculate Your Tuition

This formula shows how to tabulate your tuition charges.
• On-Campus: (Total number of credit hours you are taking) X (tuition per credit hour) + (fees applicable to your total credit hours) = Your tuition.

Off-Campus: (Total number of credit hours you are taking) X (tuition per credit hour) = Your tuition.

Distance Learning: (Total number of credit hours you are taking) X (tuition per credit hour) + $50 Distance Learning Fee) = Your Tuition.

Mandatory Fees

Mandatory Fees apply to all on-campus students and students with combination off-campus and on-campus schedules regardless of student level or residency status.

Any combination of extension or distance learning courses and on-campus courses have mandatory fees.

 

NOTE: Some courses carry additional fees. These fees are not included in the tuition and mandatory fee information. The list of courses with additional fees is listed in the Class Schedule Bulletin.

Four Year Guaranteed Tuition Plan

The “Truth in Tuition” bill mandates that Illinois public universities provide four years of level tuition for new students enrolling for the first time beginning with the Fall 2004-2005 academic year.  Undergraduate and transfer students enrolling at CSU for the first time after Fall 2004 and students who enroll for the first time every semester  beginning Fall 2004-2005 and thereafter will have their tuition rate held constant for four consecutive years.

The guaranteed rates will remain in effect for four years or until the student reaches 120 credit hours. The hours will be extended to accommodate any majors or programs that exceed the 120 hours or four years. The guaranteed rate will remain in effect except in the event of a break in enrollment of no more than one year (two semesters, excluding summer school). In no case will the initial guaranteed rate be valid beyond five years of total enrollment. A tuition surcharge of 10% will be assessed for students that extend beyond the four-year guarantee period (120 credit hours) or five years of total enrollment. For all other students, CSU’s current tuition program will remain in effect.

IMPORTANT! Note: A change in major will not affect the guaranteed rate. The guaranteed rate will continue for the number of credit hours necessary to complete the new major, not to exceed five years of total enrollment. Beyond five years of total enrollment, a 10% surcharge will be assessed.

Extended illness and military service will be given special consideration. The rate guarantee will be extended on a case-by-case basis by invoking the student appeal process.

Transfer student rates will be guaranteed based upon 120 credit hours less the number of credits transferred at the time of first enrollment. All extensions and exceptions that apply to new freshmen will be extended to new transfer students.

Credit Hour Pricing
Beginning with the Fall 2004-2005 academic year, tuition and mandatory fees will be charged on a per credit hour basis up to 15 hours during the Fall and Spring semesters and up to nine hours during the Summer session. This credit hour cap will allow students to complete 120 credit hours in eight semesters or four years. Credit hours above 15 will be charged at the rate for 15 credit hours during Fall and Spring semesters. Credit hours above 9 will be charged at the rate for 9 credit hours during the Summer sessions.

Out-of-State Undergraduate Tuition
Undergraduate out-of-state (non-Illinois resident) per credit hour tuition is twice the resident per credit hour tuition. The Four Year Guaranteed Tuition Plan is extended to all undergraduate out-of-state new freshmen and transfer students.

Out-of-State Graduate Tuition Rates
Graduate out-of-state (non-Illinois resident) per credit hour tuition is twice the resident per credit hour tuition.

Payment and Refund Policy

No registration transaction is complete until it has been processed by the business office. If you register online, please confirm your registration by requesting a paid receipt for your summer registration from the Cashier’s Office (ADM 211).

Payment Policy

1. Students who have outstanding debts at Chicago State University will not be permitted to register until those debts have been paid.

2. MasterCard, VISA, Discover, TeleCheck, cash, money orders, cashier’s checks, certified checks, personal checks and traveler’s checks will be accepted for tuition and fee charges. ECAP also provides electronic check approval that takes funds from your checking account within 48 hours of the time that the check is written to CSU. Business checks will not be accepted.

3. Students who have presented two NSF (not sufficient funds) checks to the University even though restitution has been made will be required to pay for their registration with cash, money orders, certified checks, traveler’s checks, MasterCard, VISA or Discover. Business checks will not be accepted.

Tuition Management Installment Plan
Chicago State University offers an interest-free monthly payment plan to distribute your education expenses over time instead of one large payment. For more information, or to enroll, call 1-(800) 722-4867 (TMS 24 hours a day) and speak with an education payment counselor or log on to www.csu.edu/. Also, you can log on directly to Tuition Management Systems at www.afford.com.

Only students enrolling for four (4) credit hours or more are allowed to use the Tuition Management Installment Plan. Students using the installment payment option are required to make an initial payment at the time of registration or before the payment deadline. Please remember your initial deposit must go to Chicago State University or your classes will be canceled.

The fee for using the installment plan varies according to the number of payments in your plan. Whether you are on the installment plan with TMS or not, you will still pay the deferred fee amount if tuition is not paid in full at the time of registration.

Default
Failure to make payment on time places the student’s account in default and a $25 delinquent fee will be assessed. In addition, a hold will be placed on the student’s academic record and the student will not be permitted to register for subsequent terms until the balance is paid.

Your Financial Responsibilities
If you fail to meet the terms of your deferred payment agreement, you will not be eligible for academic credit for enrolled courses. In addition, Chicago State University may report your account to the credit bureau and assign your student account to an outside collection agency. It is further understood that all reasonable collection costs, fees or legal expenses incurred by Chicago State University and any outside agency in securing payment is your responsibility. These fees could range from 25% to 50% of your unpaid balance.

NOTE: Refund checks are mailed. Please allow four (4) weeks for processing from the final refund date.

Returned Check Policy
All checks are processed through TeleCheck. Any returned checks will require a $20 return check fee by CSU and a $25 fee by TeleCheck, totaling $45. If a student pays CSU directly, a $25 assessment by TeleCheck will still be enforced. It is the responsibility of the student to maintain a current address in the records office. Students should note that all dates, fees, and charges are subject to change without notice.
