Greenwood Village, CO (PRWEB) May 09, 2013
Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSUGlobal.edu) is pleased to announce that it will not be raising its tuition rates during the 2013-2014 academic year. The standard tuition rate for undergraduate students will remain at $350 per credit hour and the standard tuition rate for graduate students will remain at $500 per credit hour as approved by the Board of Governors for the CSU System.
“We are committed to keeping education affordable,” said Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker, CSU-Global’s President. “Through low tuition rates with no student fees, no difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition, and our Tuition Guarantee, we are better able to accomplish our mission of increasing access to quality learning opportunities and to help more students finally earn their degrees.”
Since 2008, CSU-Global has offered a Tuition Guarantee which locks in a student’s tuition rate for as long as he or she is enrolled—from admission to the university through to graduation. This allows students to better plan for their educational expenses without any unexpected tuition hikes. In addition to its freeze on standard tuition rates, the CSU System Board of Governors also approved CSU-Global to continue to offer discounted rates for military personnel and employees of affiliate organizations. Students who qualify for either category receive a 10% discount for a per-credit-hour tuition rate of $315 for undergraduate students or $450 for graduate students.
In an effort to further reduce students’ financial responsibilities, CSU-Global offers alternative ways to earn credit while optimizing credit transfer for its bachelor’s degree completion programs. CSU-Global’s processes allow students to reduce their educational expenses and minimize their loan amounts.
“CSU-Global provides its students with academic and financial flexibility to help them succeed now and in the future. We work to make sure that those students with the courage and determination to continue their education have the resources they need to be successful,” continued Dr. Takeda-Tinker.
