On Aug. 1, 2023, Colorado State University removed the application fee for undergraduate Colorado residents. New Students for the 2024-2025 school year have the opportunity of applying to CSU without the application fee.

This is the largest four-year institution in Colorado to eliminate the application fee. Additional colleges in the state with waived fee applications are Colorado College, Regis University, Aims Community College, and more.

The application fee used to be 50 dollars, but Heather Daniels, the CSU executive director of admissions, was one of the administrators who changed the application process to be waived because she was inspired to provide higher education access to all students. CSU’s office admissions overall goal with the fee waive was to remove barriers for students.

Oftentimes, application fees can deter a student from applying to universities. Colorado State University is hopeful this change will allow students to expand their education and provide more opportunities for all students.
