Graduation/Diploma Fee Payment
There is a $115 graduation/diploma fee which must be paid in order to become a candidate for graduation. You may apply for graduation prior to paying this fee, however, you must pay the fee in order to become an actual candidate for graduation. The $115 Graduation/Diploma fee may now be paid online through your student center (How to Pay Graduation Fee? ). This fee may also be paid in person at the cashier’s window (GH-180) or by mailing your payment to CSU Fullerton, Student Business Services, P.O. Box 6808, Fullerton, CA 92834-6808. Be sure that your name and Campus Wide ID is on the front of the check and that you identify the payment as the graduation/diploma fee.
