“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.”

  • Intra-University

Level II:

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