Greenwood Village, Colo.—Bucking the trend of ever escalating tuition, Colorado State University Global (CSU Global) announced today that it received approval from the CSU System Board of Governors to maintain the same tuition rates for the upcoming year. It marks the sixth straight year that CSU Global has held the line on tuition, meaning new students will continue to pay the same $350 per undergraduate credit hour and $500 per graduate credit hour. Military personnel and corporate affiliate partners receive a 10 percent tuition discount.
“Education and lifelong learning are increasingly an ongoing investment into the future, and affordability is a major component of that goal,” said Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker, president and CEO of CSU Global. “At CSU Global, we deliver high quality educational programs at a reasonable cost so students can succeed in their careers and see a meaningful return on their investment.”
In addition to affordable tuition, CSU Global charges no student fees, and offers the same tuition rate for in-state and out-of-state students. CSU Global also offers a tuition guarantee that students will continue to pay the same tuition for the duration of their education. All of which means students know the full cost of their education before they take a single class, and can budget accordingly.
To further reduce the time and expense of earning a degree, CSU Global also accepts different types of transfer credits and offers a variety of ways for students to earn credits for prior learning. Through Prior Learning Assessments and Competency Based Exams, students can demonstrate subject-matter mastery for concepts learned in the military or the workplace, and earn appropriate college credits.
“Earning a college degree or certificate is essential to long-term success in today’s economy, and we want to do everything we can to make it easier for students to meet their career goals,” said Dr. Takeda-Tinker. “Beyond benefiting students, college affordability is in the state of
Colorado’s best interest. It will help ensure we continue to build a well-educated workforce that contributes to economic growth and prosperity.”
CSU Global is an independent, 100 percent online institution with approximately 18,000 students. It has conferred nearly 10,000 degrees since it welcomed its first students in 2008. While it is a state university and part of the CSU System, it operates as a completely self- sustaining entity and receives no taxpayer appropriations. Its primary source of funding is student tuition. CSU Global is one of the fastest growing online universities in the nation, with a mission to serve adult learners and degree completers, who represent 75 percent of the students enrolled in college today.
