Financing your Education
Graduate school fees are set by the CSU Board of Trustees each academic year. The current fee structure may be found on the Enrollment Services web site. The approximate cost as of Fall 2022 is $13,620 for the entire Teacher Librarian Credential program for California residents (fees will vary based on 2 or 3 year tracks).
There are many options available for financing your graduate education.
CSULB fees are based on students enrolled in either 6 units or less, or enrolling in 7 units or more. Current tuition and fees may be found at the Enrollment Services website. Please reference your program’s website for information about the number of units you will take each term.
