CSU Funding

The CSU’s operating budget has two main funding sources: the state General ​​Fund and student tuition fees. State funding now covers slightly more than half of the CSU’s operating costs, with tuition fees making up for the remainder. Auxiliaries and philanthropic support generate additional revenue needed for essential services that supplement state-supported activities.
