Program Fees

Estimated Program Costs

  • The CSU application fee is currently $55.00   See: Cal State APPLY
  • Program fees are based on a year-round program and includes the cost of summer session.  Students pay the same base fees charged for University of California doctoral programs (some UC programs add extra fees, we do not).
  • Non-residents are subjected to extra fees per unit

           Cal State LA student fees

2017-2018 tuition is 6,364.34 per semester with 3 semesters a year (Fall, Spring and Summer).  Our program total per year is $19,093.02.  Fees are collected prior to the fall and spring semesters and prior to the summer session in three equal amounts.

2017-2018 tuition should hold steady but an increase could be assigned for 2017-18 based on UC and CSU Trustees decisions.


Financial Aid

The traditional student loans are available for Ed.D. students through the CSULA Financial Aid Office.  Financial Aid set aside funds are available as additional need-based support for students.  For students who pay out of pocket, a payment plan is available that distributes each semester's tuition into 3 equal payments.   Travel money is available for conference attendance.  Other student support for research expenses becomes available at the dissertation stage.
