A $35 non-sufficient funds fee will be assessed to returned checks or electronic payments.
Full Payment: Full payment is due on the first day of class each term. Students can pay anytime between registration and when class begins.
Installment Plans: Students may be eligible for a tuition payment option of two equal installments. For information on specific terms and conditions of the plan, including fees, contact the Student Financial Services Office.
Billing Notification: Students will receive all billing and online tuition payment notices through their CSU-Global email account and/or the Student Portal. Paper bills will also be sent to the mailing address provided by the student.
Tuition Deferment: Students may defer their tuition until the end of the term if they are eligible for a qualified employer’s tuition reimbursement program. Contact the Student Financial Services office for more information.
Third-Party Billing: Students with college payment plans to be paid by a third party, such as a non-profit organization or other entity, must complete a Third Party Agreement (available from an advisor). The agreement must be signed by the student and the sponsor, and submitted to Student Accounts by the first day of class for each semester. The Third Party Sponsor will be billed directly for allowable charges. If not paid by sponsor within 14 days of course completion the student is liable.
Delinquent Student Accounts: Students are subject to any or all of the following actions if they have a delinquent debt to CSU-Global Campus:
- Administratively withdrawn
- Transcripts withheld
- Degree not conferred
- No future course registrations allowed
- Turned over to a collection agency
Reasonable collection/legal costs will be added to the amount due. Any student who pays with a check that is returned unpaid by his/her bank will be subject to all of the penalties for late payment and also will be charged an additional $35 non-sufficient funds fee.
If you drop your classes on or before the last day to receive a refund, the full amount of tuition paid will be refunded to you. You will not receive a refund for amounts paid if you drop/withdraw from your classes after the last day to drop a class. Refunds to students will be made by check. Refund requests will be processed within two business days after the last day to drop the class.
Students receiving Federal Title IV Aid, Third-Party Sponsorships or Institutional Scholarships are subject to the refund policies of these providers. In some cases, the financial aid received may need to be repaid to the program. Please contact the Financial Aid Office for more information at 720-279-1144.
Oregon Residents: After classes begin for a term, a student who withdraws from a course is eligible for a partial refund through the middle week of the term. Refunds shall be based on unused instructional time and shall be prorated on a weekly basis since CSU-Global utilizes a nontraditional academic calendar. Refund rates shall not be differentiated on the criteria of a student's source of income or loan repayment obligations except as otherwise required by law.
The Tuition Appeals Committee will consider requests for adjustment to tuition and fee charges when a student can document extenuating circumstances. Appeals must be made no later than thirty (30) days past the end of the term in question. Appeal forms may be obtained by contacting the Office of Student Financial Services. No adjustment or refunds of tuition and fees will be made to a student who is suspended, dismissed or expelled for a breach of discipline.
