The 2019-2020 academic year will be the eighth in a row to hold the same tuition rate the university has offered since 2011.

Greenwood Village, Colo. (May 13, 2019) – Colorado State University Global (CSU Global) has once again been granted approval by the Colorado State University System Board of Governors to keep its tuition rates steady for the upcoming academic year. With its May 7, 2019 Board of Governors approval, CSU Global will maintain its rates of $350 per undergraduate credit hour and $500 per graduate credit hour, marking the eighth consecutive year without an increase in tuition costs to students.

Through its ongoing attention to operational efficiency and incorporation of technology tools, the university has not raised its rates since 2011. By comparison, CollegeBoard reports that public, four-year institutions have experienced an average increase in tuition and fees of more than 10% during that same time frame1.

CSU Global also does not charge student fees, and its tuition is on a per-credit-hour basis. It offers the same tuition rates for in-state and out-of-state students, provides tuition discounts for military and affiliates, and has always offered a tuition guarantee to lock in a student’s tuition, from the time they first enroll until they graduate. The university also invests in its student-success focused services: 24 hour 7-day a week live tutoring and technical support; and live career coaching sessions, interview practice, and resume assistance, all at no additional charge to its students.

“Our mission to facilitate career success for modern learners in a global marketplace is boosted by our ability to help our students financially plan to achieve their degrees and certificates,” said Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker, president and CEO of CSU Global. “We fervently believe all students should have access to affordable, high-quality, and career-relevant education -- and we’re proud to offer personalized learning paths, taught by industry experts, that provide a real-world return on their investment.”

Despite its status as a public state university, CSU Global does not receive any state appropriation and is solely funded by its tuition revenue. Its ability to maintain operational efficiency while demonstrating student satisfaction and a quantifiable return on investment is therefore critical for its continued long-term success.
