Information About Paying Fees

Fees are due by the payment deadlines or your courses may be subject to disenrollment. Your financial account summary is located online in MyCSUEB. Fees may be added to your student account up until the fee payment deadline. Please check your account regularly in MyCSUEB to ensure you are aware of all your fees due. Tuition/Fee information can be found on the Student Financial Services webpage.

Beware of the back-to-school scam of anyone requiring you to pay non-existent taxes, such as a "Federal Student Tax." There is no such tax. People should be on the lookout for IRS impersonators calling students and demanding that they pay immediately a fake "federal student tax." If you receive any such calls, hang up and do not give out any information. Call toll free the Treasury Inspector General Tax Administration (TIGTA) office at 800-366-4484 to report it. For more information click here to read the article on the official IRS site.
