Tuition & Fees

As part of its commitment to educational excellence and access, CCSU works to keep tuition low and to provide a robust financial aid program that has grown to more than $100 million annually. As a result of our aggressive fundraising to support students, the University also provides $1.4 million in scholarship funds annually to nearly 900 students. We also offer the Central Payment Plan, which enables students to make tuition payments in up to five installments.
