Rep. Froelich’s Bill to Increase National Guard Tuition Benefits at CSU-Global Passes Unanimously

Since 2018, CSU-Global has graduated over 18,000 students

(Apr. 18) –  Rep. Meg Froelich’s bipartisan bill, to allow Colorado State University’s Global Campus to offer students who are National Guard Members tuition benefits unanimously passed in the House. Currently, CSU-Global students cannot seek financial aid or receive tuition benefits through the National Guard’s state statute as an institution for which the National Guard members can utilize their tuition benefits.

“Giving our troops the ability to utilize their tuition benefits at CSU-Global will allow these individuals to serve while simultaneously working to complete their higher education,” said Rep. Froelich, D-Englewood. “I want to help National Guard Members be successful while they continue serving our great state.”

Nearly 40 percent of CSU-Global students are Colorado residents who reside in 63 out of the 64 counties in the state. Roughly 15 percent of these students are military affiliated.

“CSU-Global is designed to serve non-traditional students. That makes it a really good fit for National Guard members because many members are overseas to keep us safe here in Colorado,” Rep. Froelich added.

The bipartisan bill now heads to the Governor’s desk.
