Dear Student,

This Proposition 30 ballot initiative was approved by voters in the November 6, 2012 election. As a result, the California State University will implement the tuition fee contingency plan as previously approved by the Board of Trustees. The California State University will roll back tuition fees to 2011-12 fee levels, retroactive to the fall 2012 term. For further information regarding tuition fees, please visit the following website: http://www.calstate.edu/budget.

The applicable reduction in tuition and graduate business professional fees for fall 2012 will be calculated and a credit will be posted to your account no later than December 1, 2012. The credit may be applied to any balances due on your account. Any credit remaining as a result of this adjustment will be refunded to you.

The fastest, most convenient way to receive your refund is through our direct deposit program. We highly encourage you to enroll in the direct deposit program if you have not already done so. Enrollment instructions for direct deposit can be found on your myCSUB account.

Any applicable financial aid adjustment for 2012-13 will be reflected on your student award no later than December 1, 2012. Depending on the details of an individualís financial aid package, the fee reduction may be matched by an equal reduction in a financial aid grant, in which case no refund will be due to the student. You may receive further communication regarding your specific financial aid status from the Financial Aid office.

Please be sure to regularly monitor your myCSUB account for the fee adjustments.

If you have any questions regarding your student account, please contact Student Financial Services at (661) 654-3225. For FAQ's, in response to the passage of Proposition 30, click here.

President Signature
