Greenwood Village, Colorado (PRWEB) October 11, 2011
Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSU-Global), the first public 100% online university for bachelor’s degree completion and master’s degree programs, is pleased to announce its student success program enhancements for active military, veterans, and their dependents. Beginning January 1, 2012, the program will maintain the university’s bachelor’s degree completion coursework tuition at $250 per credit hour and it will provide up to $250,000 in master’s degree course scholarships to offset graduate program tuition for those enrolled prior to July 1, 2012.
To enhance its support of service members, the university has also worked to increase its hiring of retired military members with advanced terminal degrees, created a one-stop department specialized to address military student advising needs including active military and veteran benefits, and prepared its staff and faculty to address the unique needs of military members returning from recent combat.
Additionally, as part of its ongoing service to all of its students, CSU-Global does not charge student fees and provides a Tuition Guarantee which ensures students who remain actively enrolled in their degree program will pay the same tuition rate until graduation.
“We are proud to be able to offer a multi-faceted program that addresses the financial, academic, and service support needs of our U.S. service members and their dependents,” stated Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker, President of CSU-Global. “As a public university that represents affordable and high quality education, CSU-Global’s 100% online degree programs will provide active military, veterans and their dependents with the flexibility needed to complete their degrees cost-effectively and from any location with internet access.”
Under current Tuition Assistance benefit provisions, CSU-Global bachelor’s degree completion courses minimize any out-of-pocket expenses for service members and their dependents at $250 per credit hour. Further, the master’s degree course scholarship awards of $100.00 per credit hour, available as of January 1, 2012 for new students who qualify for Military Tuition Assistance and Veteran Education Benefits, will help offset CSU-Global standard graduate-level tuition.
Master’s degree scholarship funds will be applied to outstanding tuition balances by CSU-Global and scholarship awardees will be eligible to receive ongoing scholarship funds to offset their tuition balances from entry to graduation as long as they remain in academic good standing. CSU-Global’s Guaranteed Tuition program is available to all CSU-Global students, and establishes a student’s tuition rate upon entry that remains the same throughout the student’s degree program as long as they are actively enrolled.
CSU-Global proudly was accepted as a member of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Consortium earlier in August of this year. Its degree programs are intended to provide U.S. Military personnel with new opportunities to advance their knowledge and improve their professional skills while earning a degree. Interested students should contact CSU-Global’s Military Enrollment Department at 800.920.6723 or email MilitaryAdmissions(at)csuglobal(dot)org.
