CSU Pueblo announces tuition freeze for upcoming year

PUEBLO — CSU Pueblo has announced a tuition freeze for the upcoming school year.

In order to balance campus budgets, the board voted to use its reserves and state and federal aid to minimize the financial impacts on students in the fall.

"We started realizing that this would not be the year, no year is the ideal year to do a tuition increase but this one we were particularly sensitive to," CSU President Timothy Mottet said.

Since the Federal Cares Act Money couldn't go directly toward tuition, the CSU Pueblo Foundation launched a campaign that raised more than $82,000. The money will go directly to helping students pay for college.
