All prices are subject to change without notice. 

* For the Intensive English Program only, students have an option to pay for a full Fall or Spring semester (16 weeks) at a discounted price ($5,205) or pay for a single 8-week session ($3,005). The discounted price will be applied only if students are enrolled in both Fall 1 & 2 sessions or Spring 1 & 2 sessions. If students begin the program in Spring 2, Summer, or Fall 2, the discounted price will not be applied. 

For students applying for conditional admission to undergraduate programs at CSUEB, initially an I-20 for the Intensive English Program will be issued for 1 academic year (2 semesters); therefore, verification of finances totaling $35,370 is required. 

** For the Visiting Student Program, students must take at least 12 units if taking both undergraduate and graduate courses in a semester. Undergraduate courses are $392 per unit and graduate courses are $448 per unit.
