CSU is approved to offer military Tuition Assistance (TA) and assist with Veterans Affairs benefits. Additional education funding is available to those approved for TA and eligible for MGIB-Active Duty benefits. In most cases, these benefits cover the entire cost of your program. You can complete seven undergraduate courses or six graduate courses annually without exceeding the Department of Defense annual ceiling of $4,500. The CSU undergraduate rate is below the TA cap and the graduate rate is at the TA semester hour cap of $250.
Active Duty Military Discount
The tuition rate for graduate courses per credit hour is $250 for all active-duty military members (not applicable for CSU students using a learning partner discount). The lower rate is offered to keep the tuition rate at the DoD cap of $250. Most courses are 3 credit hours. Tuition and fees are payable in U.S. funds. Tuition rates are subject to change.
