Enrollment Confirmation Deposit

Confirm Your Enrollment (for Undergraduate Students)

Upon an offer of admission to the University, a non-refundable Enrollment Confirmation Deposit (ECD) of $100.00 (USD) is required of all new and returning undergraduate students who plan to enroll at Cal State LA for their admitted term. The enrollment confirmation deposit will be applied towards your first term's tuition.

(NOTE: The ECD is non-refundable, and non-transferable to another term. Do not submit the ECD until you are offered admission for your selected term. Also, the ECD requirement does not apply to continuing Cal State LA students, new graduate/certificate/credential students, or students admitted into non-state supported programs (e..g, DTLA).)

To reserve your space, please submit the deposit by the respective term's deadlines:

Fall 2017
  • Domestic Undergraduate Students (Freshmen and Transfers): May 1, 2017
    • Returning Cal State LA students: June 1, 2017
  • International (F/J Visa) Undergraduate Students: June 1, 2017
Missing the stated ECD deadline may prevent admission eligible students from enrolling at Cal State LA for their admitted term.

The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory systemwide fees, are subject to change without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate. Changes in mandatory systemwide fees will be made in accordance with the requirements of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Sections 66028 - 66028.6 of the Education Code).
