CSU Bakersfield Announces Tuition Reduction

Because of the recent voters’ approval of Proposition 30, CSUB will avoid a $4.1 million mid-year budget cut and will start the process of rescinding the $166 per quarter tuition fee increase already in place. The CSU system’s overall state budget will essentially remain flat for the remainder of this fiscal year, but state funding for the system is still approximately $1 billion less than several years ago.

“The passage of Prop 30 will help to stabilize our budget in an era of massive state government cuts to Education,” said President Dr. Horace Mitchell. “While it will not provide any new funding for the CSU system, it will prevent an additional ‘trigger cut’ of $250 million in January.”

Annual tuition fees for full-time undergraduate students will now revert back to $5,472 – the same rate as in the 2011-2012 academic year. Students will either be credited, refunded, or receive a reconfigured financial aid package to account for the revised tuition fee rates.

New students seeking admission to CSU Bakersfield can expect a slight increase for the 2013-2014 academic year. The CSU system had held applications from new students pending the outcome of Prop 30. Campuses, including CSU Bakersfield, will now immediately begin reviewing applications for new student admissions for the fall. For more information, visit
