Tuition and Fees (Fall 2015 - Summer 2016)
Colorado residency status is not a factor in determining online, distance, or off-campus tuition rates; however, residency status is a factor in determining tuition rates for some on-campus credit courses. Tuition assessed through CSU Online is in addition to any other tuition assessed by the University.

Colorado State University reserves the right to change tuition rates without notice. Tuition rates are subject to increase on an annual basis. All prices refer to U.S. currency.
Certain courses carry specific course fees for additional services and materials such as travel, equipment, room rental, and other miscellaneous costs.
All University fees are assessed and collected through the standard student billing process. These fees should not be paid to individuals or academic departments.
A $25 technology fee applies to all students taking credit courses through the University to help support increasing technological needs, improvements, and advancements. This fee is assessed each term the student is registered.
Facility Fee (on-campus courses only)
A $15 per-credit hour facility fee applies to students attending courses held on-campus to support the construction and maintenance of Colorado State University's campus facilities.
Companies or agencies (sponsors) who request to be billed for a student's tuition will be assessed a non-refundable $50 service fee per student per semester. Students always have the option of paying tuition themselves. Failure to pay this billing service charge by a sponsor will result in termination of future sponsor billing requests.

Students enrolled in academic courses offered at a distance or at any of our locations have the option of paying the on-campus general fees and receiving all the benefits associated with the fee. See the On-Campus Tuition & Fees for more information.
