You’ve helped secure our future. Let us help secure yours.

Colorado State University Global is proud to offer discounted tuition and support tailored to active service members and veterans and their families in a 100% online format, created for nontraditional learners. Whether your goal is to advance within the armed forces or transition into the civilian sector, CSU Global is dedicated to meeting the unique needs of servicemembers and their dependents.

Important Information for Military Students

CSU Global offers additional benefits for veterans, including military tuition assistance and special military tuition rates. This 10% discount is available to the following degree- or certificate-seeking individuals:

  • Active-duty servicemembers, providing a copy of current orders, an LES, or another document clearly identifying active-duty status.
  • Military and Veteran spouses and dependents.
  • Veterans (retired/separated personnel) with an honorable discharge who provide a copy of a DD214 showing Character of Service.

Effective January 16, 2023, CSU Global is further lowering its undergraduate tuition rate to $250 per credit hour for active-duty, guard, and reserves personnel.  The rate, which expands on CSU Global’s already-discounted military tuition cost, also applies to spouses and qualified dependents of active-duty service members. All graduate-level programs (master’s degrees and graduate certificates) will remain at the 10% discounted rate of $450 per credit hour. In addition, the 10% discounted rate will continue to apply for all programs, both undergraduate and graduate, for veterans and their spouses and dependents.

As of 2019, CSU Global became the only 100% online education that Colorado National Guard members can apply their tuition assistance benefit toward. If you’re a current CSU Global student who’s using our Colorado National Guard scholarship, your new tuition assistance benefit will be replacing this scholarship going forward.

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% post-9/11 eligible.
