Resident Undergraduate Charges at California's Public Colleges and Universities. California Postsecondary Education Commission Factsheet 04-01
California Postsecondary Education Commission
California charges its own residents less to attend its public colleges and universities than it charges nonresidents. All three of California's public postsecondary education segments charge resident students a systemwide enrollment fee. In addition, the California State University and the University of California also charge students mandatory, campus-based fees. These campus-based fees help support student services such as counseling, student union activities, student government, and recreation. California has sought to avoid charging resident students for the direct cost of instruction, which it charges as "tuition" to nonresident students. This factsheet answers the following questions: What do the California Community Colleges charge resident students? What does the California State University charge resident students? What does the University of California charge resident students? What has the Governor proposed in terms of changes to resident undergraduate student fees for the 2004-05 State fiscal year? and Who are resident students?
