California Student Tuition Recovery Fund

The State of California created the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) to relieve or mitigate economic losses suffered by students who are California residents, or enrolled in a residency program attending certain schools regulated by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education and Vocational Education.

Effective January 1, 2015, the fee has been reduced to $0.00 per $1,000. The fee is subject to change in future years based upon legislation passed by the state of California

Prior Fee Rates

The STRF fee was $0.50 per thousand dollars of an institution's charges effective January 1, 2013 thru December 31, 2014. Prior to January 1, 2013 the fee was $2.50 per thousand dollars of an institution's charges. Students must pay the state-imposed fee for the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) if all the following applies to you:

  1. You are a student who is a California resident and prepays all or part of your tuition by cash, guaranteed student loans, or personal loans, and
  2. Your total charges are not paid by any third party payer such as an employer, government program or other payer unless you have a separate agreement to repay the third party.

You are not eligible for protection from the STRF and you are not required to pay the STRF assessment, if either of the following applies:
