Cash Payment

Unless approved for another financing option prior to the start of the term, students are required to pay 50% of their tuition by the first day of the term and the remaining 50% of their tuition 30 days into the term using one of the accepted payment methods.

Employer Reimbursement Tuition Deferment

Students may defer their tuition until the end of the term if they are eligible for a qualified employer tuition reimbursement programs. The Deferred Payment Agreement must be submitted and approved by the first day of class. Full payment is due no later than 30 days after the course is completed.

Military Benefits

A variety of military benefits are available based on the student's status. CSU Global will defer payment until 30 days after the end of the term for the benefits to process. Charges not covered by military benefits are the responsibility of the student. All military benefits requests must be submitted and approved prior to the start of the term.

Financial Aid

The Federal Financial Aid programs offered at CSU Global include the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Direct Stafford Loans, and Federal Direct PLUS Loans. Not all students will qualify for all types of Financial Aid available, and your eligibility is determined based on your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). All financial aid packages must be approved and accepted prior to the start of the term. 

Financial Aid Tuition Deferral

Students who begin attendance in a trimester as less than half-time (fewer than 6 credits for undergraduate students or fewer than 3 credits for graduate students) will not qualify for a financial aid loan disbursement. In order to quality for a financial aid loan disbursement during that trimester, they must achieve an enrollment status of half-time attendance or higher. Since loan funding may not be received until a future term with a trimester, Financial Aid students may apply to have their tuition deferred until 30 days into the final term of their trimester by completing the Financial Aid Deferment Agreement. All required financial aid documentation and award acceptance must be completed prior to the beginning of each term in which the student wants to apply for the tuition deferral. Students must have enough accepted financial aid to cover estimated charges for the trimester. Pell Grant alone is insufficient to cover all direct costs in a term. Students who do not qualify for financial aid disbursements by the payment due date are responsible for any unpaid tuition and other charges.

Good Financial Standing

A student is considered to be in good financial standing with the university if:

  • Current term payment has been made or arrangements to pay are on file.
  • There is no prior term balance of $200 or more.
  • There is no current financial related hold on their student record.
  • No outstanding account balance has been referred to a third party collector.

Outstanding Account Balances

Students with unpaid tuition of $200 or more 30 days after the start of class may have a registration and/or transcript hold placed on their account unless a deferred payment option (military benefits, tuition reimbursement, or third-party tuition assistance) has been approved. Students with an approved deferred payment option have until 30 days after the end of the term; at which time, a registration and/or transcript hold will be placed on their account. Financial Aid students with an approved Financial Aid Deferment Agreement on file, will have their tuition payment deferred until 30 days into the final term of their trimester.

Students will be offered the option of setting up a payment plan for past due balances for a $25 enrollment fee; however, students will not be allowed to register and/or may be removed from future registrations until the account is paid in full.

Any account not paid within 90 days after the end of a term, or the end of the academic year for financial aid students, will be referred to a collections agency.

Delinquent Student Accounts

Students are subject to any or all of the following actions if they have a delinquent debt to CSU Global:

  • Administratively withdrawn
  • Transcripts withheld
  • Degree withheld
  • Unregistered from current or future course(s)
  • No future course registrations allowed
  • Turned over to a collection agency

Reasonable collection/legal costs will be added to the amount due. A $10.00 late fee will be charged for payments 15 days past their due date, and a $25.00 fee will be for insufficient funds when payments are electronically processed. A $35.00 fee will be assessed for returned checks. Students who have been referred to an outside collection agency will be required to pay all charges by the first day of the term or may be dropped from their course(s).

Private and Alternative Loan Programs

Students may apply for private or alternative loan programs through their preferred lenders. Private loans will not be certified for more than the student's cost of attendance minus other financial resources that the student is receiving. Further, students are subject to the criteria as determined by the individual lender.
