California Student Tuition Recovery Fund Assessment
The Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) assessment is a state imposed charge that is required to be paid by a California resident student who pays tuition to an institution. The State of California has defined a California resident as “a person who resides in California at the time the enrollment agreement is signed or when the person receives lessons at a California mailing address from an approved institution offering distance education”. Per Title 5, California Code of Regulations (CCR) 76130(a), “a qualifying institution shall collect the assessment from each student in an educational program at the time it collects the first payment from or on behalf of the student at or after enrollment. The assessment shall be collected for the entire period of enrollment, regardless of whether the student pays the institutional charges in increments.”
This non-refundable assessment is $0.00 per $1,000 of institutional charges rounded to the nearest thousand dollars. See below to determine if you must pay this additional state-imposed assessment.
