Paying for college is an important and sometimes complicated process. If you and/or your student want to receive Financial Aid—grants, scholarships, and loans—the student must fill out a FAFSA application each year. Sacramento State students are required to pay tuition and fees each semester they attend. Tuition is the cost to attend classes; mandatory fees are designated for specific programs and services all students can access. Examples of mandatory fees include:
  • The University Union fee, which allows the student to use The WELL during the academic year.
  • The health fee, which enables students to access the Student Health and Counseling Center.
  • The ASI fee, which facilities student involvement through student government, events, and activities. Tuition and fees are due to the University 14 days after a student registers for classes. Neither you nor your son or daughter will be billed. Due dates and balances owned are available to students via the MySacState portal.
