The Colorado State University System Board of Governors has approved a tuition increase as part of the 2022 fiscal year budget. 

According to a press release from the University, CSU Fort Collins and CSU Pueblo students will see a tuition increase of 3% in the coming year, amounting to roughly $282.20 for a full-time student at the Fort Collins campus. Students at the Pueblo campus will see an increase of $238.20 for a full-time student (taking 15 credits). 


CSU Global tuition is exempt from this increase. 

The tuition increase is part of a larger budget totaling almost $1.5 billion and is the first such increase since the fall 2018 semester, according to the press release. 

“This is still a recovery year, and this budget allows us to make some progress toward keeping our academic salaries competitive while also addressing mandatory costs, inflation and some of the parts of our campuses hit hardest by the pandemic,” System Chancellor Tony Frank said. 

Also included in the FY22 budget is $541,000 to fund “network infrastructure upgrades” at the Fort Collins campus and $17 million to remodel the Technology Building at the Pueblo campus. 

$12.9 million was also approved in the budget “to help the Fort Collins campus address its revenue shortfalls for the FY21 fiscal year,” according to the press release.

Natalie Weiland is a sophomore political science student with a minor in legal studies and a fierce love of the Oxford comma. Weiland grew up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and served as an editor for her high school’s yearbook during her senior year. She credits the absolute chaos of the 2016 presidential election for introducing her to — and getting her hooked on — the world of politics and journalism. Her journey with The Collegian started in the fall of her freshman year when she began writing for the news desk.  In her spare time, Weiland enjoys reading and attempting to not have a heart attack every time The New York Times sends a breaking news update to her phone. She has two incredibly adorable dogs (that she will gladly show pictures of if asked) and three less-adorable siblings.  As news director, Weiland's main goal is to ensure that students trust The Collegian to cover stories that are important to and affect them, and she hopes that students are never afraid to reach out and start a conversation. Weiland is excited to see what The Collegian has in store this year and hopes to explore the campus community through reporting.
