Every day, Columbia Southern University strives to provide every student with access to an affordable, quality education that is underscored with exceptional student support. In fact, these three tenets constitute the core of our mission.
After careful consideration, CSU will adopt a moderate tuition rate increase effective July 1, 2019. The tuition increase will ensure the university continues:
– Providing course materials at no cost.
– Enhancing its degree programs, courses and services.
– Providing students with the most effective and latest technologies including Blackboard upgrades, student portal enhancements and more.
The tuition rate for undergraduate courses will increase from $225 to $230 per credit hour.
The tuition rate for graduate courses will increase from $300 to $315 per credit hour. The tuition rate for graduate courses will remain $250 per credit hour for all active-duty military members.
The tuition rate for doctoral courses will remain $375 per credit hour. The tuition rate for existing students who are currently enrolled in the DBA program at a rate of $350 per credit hour will increase to $375 per credit hour.
Please note that all necessary course resources, including textbooks, will continue to be provided at no additional cost.
The tuition increase will take effect during terms 1B20 and 1A20. The registration open date for term 1B20 is April 10, 2019, and the registration open date for term 1A20 is May 15, 2019. All LifePace Learning® enrollments received on or after July 1, 2019, will adhere to the new rate.
