Each Early Start course costs $182 plus a fee of $1 for Health Facilities and $1 for the student union at each campus enrolled. There also may be costs associated with course materials and parking. At CSUEB there is a fee (typically less than $40) associated with the online Early Start Math course for access to the ALEKS system.
Fees can be paid by:
Online: Pay through MyCSUEB using a credit card or electronic check.
In Person: You may pay fees in person with check, money order, cashier's check, or cash at either of the Cashier's offices listed below. Credit cards are not accepted at the Cashier's office.

Assistance for some Financial Aid students is available in the form of an Early Start Fee Waiver. California residents who apply for financial aid and have an Estimated Family Contribution of $5,000 or less will be eligible for a waiver of the $182 fee. The fee waiver does not include instructional materials or costs associated with parking. This waiver will automatically be applied to the course fee.
If enrolled in an Early Start class, paid the fee, and unable to attend during that session, please go back into MyCSUEB and update enrollment to another class session. If you are no longer required to participate in the Early Start program and wish to receive a refund, be sure to drop the class in MyCSUEB no later than the Thursday before the first day of instruction. If your admission status changes during the program and you will no longer attend CSUEB, consult the Early Start office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
