Welcome to the Bursar's Office


What Does The Bursar's Office Do?

The Bursar's Office, also known as Student Financial Services, is responsible for accepting and processing tuition and fees along with other miscellaneous fee payments.

In addition to fee collections, the Bursar's Office manages student and third-party invoicing, installment payment plans, financial aid disbursements, refunds, and the collection of outstanding amounts due to the University.

These services enable the campus community to more effectively pursue their mission of teaching, learning, research and outreach.

SF State Fee Disclaimer

The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees.

All listed fees, other than mandatory systemwide fees, are subject to change without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate.

Changes in mandatory systemwide fees will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028 - 66028.6 of the Education Code).
