CSU self-discloses information pursuant to Gainful Employment Regulations as required by the U.S. Department of Education. CSU is forthright in publishing gainful employment information so students have the information necessary to make informed, rational educational decisions. Below you will find information based on student data concerning median loan debt, cost of attendance, occupational information, or retention and graduation rates.

Completion of a degree program at CSU does not guarantee that a graduate will meet all requirements and/or qualifications for employment at the international, national, state, or local level. Employment qualifications may also require that applicants earn their degree from a university with specific programmatic or institutional accreditation. CSU is nationally accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission. We encourage all students to research licensing and job requirements to insure that he or she will be prepared for their desired career path.

CSU periodically conducts a survey of all CSU graduates to determine how many graduates are currently employed or employed in their field of study within 180 days of graduating and employed for at least 13 weeks. While CSU calculates job placement rates, the institution is not required by its accreditor or home state authorization to calculate job placement rates.
