How to Register and Pay for Noncredit Courses

Registration for noncredit courses requires payment at the time of registration to confirm your seat in the course. We offer multiple registration and payment options for noncredit courses.

See each course for registration begin and end dates as they may vary.

Payment

  • Check (payable to Colorado State University)
    Checks not accepted by the bank for any reason will be charged a penalty as provided by state law, currently $17.
  • Credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover)
  • Employer / Sponsor Billing – Appropriate authorizing documentation must be submitted within 7 days to confirm your reserved registration.

If payment is not made at the time of registration, payment or employer/sponsor billing documentation must be received within 7 days.

Installment Plans

If your Colorado State University Online account is in good standing, you have the option to pay for select noncredit courses in installments. To receive an installment plan, you must register online or by phone.

The total tuition for each course will be divided into three payments. Payment of the first installment amount is due at the time of registration and is required to confirm your enrollment in the course(s).

If you wish to use an installment plan, it must be applied at the time of registration. Installment plans cannot be used in conjunction with Employer/Sponsor Billing.

After registration, you will be billed by Colorado State University Online on the 9th of each month. Payments are due before the 9th of the following month. You may also sign in to My Account and make a payment by credit card.

If your course tuition and fees will be paid by your employer or other third party, you can request billing to a sponsor. After registering, submit an official letter or other authorizing documentation stating the courses and expenses that are to be paid by your sponsor. Your sponsor's billing address must appear on this document.

Send your sponsor tuition assistance documentation to us by email, fax, or mail.

Sponsor authorization documentation must be received within 7 days to confirm your registration.

You will receive a registration confirmation for your course(s) once an official letter or other authorizing documents are received and processed.

Sponsor payments must be received for the current term in order for you to be eligible to continue enrollment in subsequent terms.

In any sponsor billing arrangement, you are ultimately responsible for payment of University charges, including any amount not covered by the sponsor. If a sponsor fails to pay any amount invoiced, those charges are transferred back to your student account and are due immediately.

Registration Confirmation

You will receive a confirmation of your enrollment in your course(s) via email or mail after we have received payment in full for your registration. Your confirmation may include "Special Instructions" which provide additional information about participation in your course.
