“Within Colorado we have been a very low state in terms of state support per student,” CSU President Tony Frank said. “The enrollment numbers reflect that we have done a very good job of maintaining access and affordability while maintaining quality.”

Resident Undergraduate $8,301 $8,716 $415 5%

Differential tuition will also increase. To determine differential tuition, each academic college is assigned a different level. Level I will increase from $49 to $51, level II will increase from $65 to $68 and level III will increase from $87 to 91.

  • College of Agricultural Sciences
  • College of Health and Human Sciences

  • Intra-University

Level II:

Level III:

CSU Pueblo will increase tuition for all students by about 6 percent, and CSU global will not increase tuition or fees.
