Campus Solutions will calculate tuition automatically when the proper conditions are met. However, there may be instances when a staff member with proper security will need to calculate tuition manually. The steps below demonstrate how to manually calculate tuition for a student.

A student’s account is only viewable once a charge or credit exists on it.

Tuition and fees will only be calculated under two conditions:

  • Tuition is ready to be calculated (after the UC Regents have met and approved the new fee amounts).
  • Student has enrolled in at least 1 unit.
