CSU Budget

The California State University budget represents our commitment to providing a high-quality education to all students, ensuring access and affordability through Graduation Initiative 2025 and additional programs aimed at student success. The Systemwide Budget Office develops and administers the budget for the 23 campuses and the Office of the Chancellor, where it sets systemwide tuition and fees and provides strategic 
financial planning that guides the CSU's operations.
