Tuition Information for Active Duty Servicemembers and Veterans
Recipients of the “Forever GI Bill,” as well as their dependents, will have lifelong access to its benefits.
In recognition of challenges faced by those transitioning from military to civilian lives and careers, CSU-Global offers multiple options to help maximize the value of these resources, including personalized degree programs, dedicated veteran support groups and advisors, and career-relevant learning outcomes.
To fulfill its mission as a military-friendly university, CSU-Global offers additional benefits for veterans, including military tuition assistance and special military tuition rates. This 10 percent discount is available to the following individuals:
Depending on eligibility, tuition costs may be covered by available military benefits, and with our tuition guarantee, student costs will not increase as long as he/she is enrolled. Financial aid is also available to those who qualify.
Please note: CSU-Global is not a Yellow Ribbon Program school, as the Post-9/11 GI Bill covers all qualified military student tuition charges accrued at a public university, if the student is 100-percent post-9/11 eligible.
Visit gibill.va.gov for more information. For students going through the enrollment process, please call 855-753-9557. For continuing students, please call 877-900-2655 and select option 1 (undergraduate) or option 2 (graduate), to speak with a Student Advisor.

All new students must apply to CSU-Global Campus, submit official transcripts from all sources of credit, and receive a degree plan.
New military students must also complete and return the CSU-Global military information form through their student document center, as well as a copy of their DD-214s, indicating an honorable discharge, an LES, or current orders. This documentation will ensure that students receive the proper billing rate and that their benefits are processed in a timely fashion. Students who are going through the enrollment process can submit these forms to email@example.com. [Currently enrolled students can submit these forms directly to their assigned student advisors.]
To use your VA education benefits, you must first apply for them through http://www.gibill.va.gov/apply-for-benefits/. The VA Regional Office in St. Louis, MO may take 8-12 weeks to process applications for educational benefits, so early registration is encouraged. If you are not sure which type of benefit you wish to use, contact the Office of Veteran’s Administration at 888-442-4451 with additional questions.
Once you’ve enrolled, submit a copy or screen shot of the completed application confirmation page to firstname.lastname@example.org or your assigned Student Advisor to alert the university that you have completed your application for educational benefits.
Admitted students must submit their Degree Plan to their Education Center (Army students will upload this form directly to GoArmyEd.com) in order to receive a TA Authorization Form. Please note that your TA Authorization Form must be obtained from your Education Center prior to the start of each course, and must be submitted no later than the 7th day of the term. For specific deadlines, please contact your education office at your local military installation.
Once your degree plan is approved, submit your TA Authorization Form to MilitaryTA@CSUGlobal.edu.
By signing the TA Authorization Form, you give your consent for CSU-Global to share information regarding your academic record with your branch of service, which is required in order to process your TA in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA).
CSU-Global will return any unearned tuition assistance (TA) funds on a proportional basis through at least the 60 percent portion of the period for which the funds were provided. TA funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when a student stops attending. Refunds will be processed within 30 days from the date the withdrawal is posted. In instances when a Service Member stops attending due to a military service obligation, students may be eligible to complete the tuition appeal process.
For any student using TA funds to pay for educational costs at CSU-Global who withdraws prior to completing 60% of their course(s), CSU-Global will return any unearned TA funds to the Government based on a student’s attendance and date of withdrawal. CSU-Global will calculate the return of unearned TA funds using the following formula once LDA (last day of attendance) has been determined: Number of days completed / Total days of the course (start to end date) = percent earned Table shows the percentage of TA funds returned according to the last date of attendance and withdrawal from course
|Days Attended||% of TA Funds Returned
(based on an 8 week course)
|Day 1||100% return|
|Day 2||100% return|
|Day 3||100% return|
|Day 4||100% return|
|Day 5||100% return|
|Day 6||85% return|
|Day 7||83% return|
|Day 8||80% return|
|Day 9||78% return|
|Day 10||75% return|
|Day 11||73% return|
|Day 12||70% return|
|Day 13||68% return|
|Day 14||65% return|
|Day 15||63% return|
|Day 16||60% return|
|Day 17||58% return|
|Day 18||55% return|
|Day 19||53% return|
|Day 20||50% return|
|Day 21||48% return|
|Day 22||45% return|
|Day 23||43% return|
|Day 24||40% return **|
** Represents 60% of the course completed
Using the calculation above, CSU-Global will return some or all of the TA funds awarded to Service Member who did not complete at least 60% of each course. This may create a balance on the CSU-Global student ledger or a balance due to the military service branch. In some instances, a student could owe both CSU-Global and the military service branch. This will depend on how much of the term was completed at the time of withdrawal.
Students who are considering a course withdrawal are encouraged to speak with their Student Advisor about their options, and the financial and academic prior to making this decision. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions you may have.
