Financial fit

As you think about whether CSU is a financial fit, we recommend you consider these four distinct-and-important factors in your decision: cost, aid, strategies, and outcomes. 


The cost of attending Colorado State varies based on several factors, including whether you are a Colorado resident or not, your living plans once at CSU, and more.


Financial aid comes in several shapes and sizes. At CSU, we consider aid as any scholarship, grant, loan, or work study opportunity a student takes advantage of.


Family savings, summer jobs, payment plans, credits earned at other colleges or via advanced placement programs — there are ways to impact the bottom line.


College needs to be worth it. Ask questions: Where do alumni work? What salary can you expect from your major? How will CSU prepare you for a career?
