Students seeking to continue their education have another reason to choose Colorado State University-Global Campus ( as the CSU System Board of Governors has just approved holding the online university’s current tuition rates for yet another year. At a time when other universities are raising their rates on a yearly basis, CSU-Global’s latest announcement marks the fourth year in a row that undergraduate tuition rates have remained the same, with graduate rates entering their fourth year unchanged as well. During its meeting on May 7-8, 2015, the Board approved to keep the standard tuition rate for undergraduate students at $350 per credit hour and the standard tuition rate for graduate students at $500 per credit hour in the next academic year.

“We are proud to be able to keep our tuition rates as low as possible to help students achieve their educational goals,” says Colorado State University-Global Campus President Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker. “Our rates combined with our Tuition Guarantee, no separate out-of-state tuition, and no student fees, demonstrates our commitment to fulfilling our mission of increasing access to higher education in the state of Colorado and beyond.”

Since 2008, CSU-Global has offered a Tuition Guarantee which locks in a student’s tuition rate for as long as the student is enrolled. This allows students to better plan for their educational expenses without any unexpected tuition hikes. In addition to its freeze on standard tuition rates, CSU-Global will 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 also offers alternative credit options giving students other ways to earn credit towards its bachelor’s degree completion programs. This includes Competency Based Exams and Prior Learning Assessments as methods for reducing educational expenses and time to completion.

“Our continued ability to provide fixed tuition rates to increasingly higher numbers of students from around the U.S. and the world without any state funding, is a testament to our student-first focus and the mission-focused dedication of our staff and faculty,” continued Dr. Takeda-Tinker. “We strive to continue to be a leader in providing high quality, affordable, and innovative educational programs that meet the needs of nontraditional learners while maintaining our fastidious attention to student success.”
