Colorado State University Global

CSU Global is committed to student success and helping modern learners achieve their academic and workplace goals through high-quality, career-relevant, low-cost education. Read on for more information about our public, not-for-profit model, affordable tuition rates, and flexible schedule.



Originally funded with a loan from the Colorado State University Board of Governors, CSU Global quickly obtained accreditation and was legally sanctioned as an independent university in Spring, 2009, when Colorado’s Governor Ritter signed Senate Bill 09-086, declaring CSU–Global Campus an online university within the Colorado State University System.


CSU Global has also innovated career-specific degree and certificate programs designed to help working adults stay on-point with fast-changing industry trends. By partnering with business and thought leaders, CSU Global continually strives to stay ahead of business trends and practices in multiple fields.


In recognition of the growing needs of nontraditional learners, CSU Global has spent the last decade innovating and refining digital education practices to ensure that the same rigorous academic standards found at traditional colleges and universities are observed in CSU Global’s online classrooms.


With CSU Global’s Career Navigation Services, we’re here to help you apply your new skills and knowledge to land a job you’ve been working toward.

Whether you want to move up in your current field or break into a new industry entirely, CSU Global is here for both alumni and current students.
