Graduate Programs Costs Overview

The Cost of Attendance, or budget, is broadly defined as the average cost to attend CSULB for one 9-month academic year consisting of the fall and spring semesters. A budget includes tuition and campus based fees, and an estimate of average costs for books and supplies, room and board, transportation and personal expenses.

The Cost of Attendance helps you and the Financial Aid office determine approximately how much money you need to attend CSULB and how much financial aid you need to meet that goal.
