At Columbia Southern University, we believe that every person seeking higher education has the right to an affordable, quality education underscored with exceptional student support. As an institution that remains one of the most affordable options in higher education, CSU has decided to adopt a moderate tuition rate increase effective July 1, 2020.
The 2020 tuition increase will allow CSU to continue to offer quality programs and exceptional service to our students.
The tuition rate for undergraduate courses will increase from $230 to $235 per credit hour.
The tuition rate for graduate courses will increase from $315 to $325 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 increase from $375 to $420 per credit hour.
The tuition increase will take effect during terms 1A21 and 1B21. The registration open date for term 1A21 is April 8, 2020, and the registration open date for term 1B21 is May 13, 2020. All LifePace Learning® enrollments received on or after July 1, 2020, will adhere to the new rate. Please note that all necessary course resources, including textbooks, will continue to be provided at no additional cost.
