4,500 Employers

Members of CSU’s last three graduating classes were hired by 4,500 unique employers in 49 states in 53 countries and attended more than 200 graduate schools.


Graduates are employed in a field related to their major.


84 Percent

of graduates secured employment or continuing education within 6 months of graduation.

These are the statistics. But at CSU, the value of your experience is more than a number.
Hear it from the graduates themselves.

Curiosity. Passion. Rigor. Innovation.

These academic values are the foundation of our students’ success. Thanks to our investments, 79 percent of our graduates complete their degrees in 4.5 years or less.


Only 5 percent of CSU’s budget goes to administration; the rest goes to Instruction, Academic Support, and Scholarships.


With a 13 percent increase in our faculty in the past five years, our student-faculty ratio is holding steady at 18:1.


The average institutional aid has increased by 53% in the last five years.

Don’t take it from us. Here’s what others are saying about CSU:

The Fort Collins Equation

We set out to define the reasons we love our town.
What we found didn’t surprise us, and we call it the Fort Collins equation.


Inviting. Accepting. Supportive. Fort Collins puts its value in its most valuable asset – its people – not in its ego.


Fort Collins is an hour from Denver and known for innovation, technology, and entrepreneurialism.


The Colorado Front Range. That means a beautiful city with access to the best mountains and recreation in the nation.
