Frequently Asked Questions


    What does it cost to attend CSU Pueblo?

    It is our policy to reduce the total amount of tuition and fees with financial aid whenever possible. For a breakdown of undergraduate tuition and mandatory fees for the school year, view our tuition and fees page.


    How do I pay my student’s bill?

    Visit the Student Billing page on the Tuition & Fees web page.


    I will be paying my student's bill, how will I know how much it is?

    A student can email you a copy of their bill, which is available to them via the PAWS web.


    What kind of health care is available on campus?

    We at the CSU Pueblo Wolfpack Wellness Center want to let you know that we are sensitive to the fact that your child is now making many decisions on their own. Making decisions about health issues can be confusing. Our staff is available to help guide them with their decisions.


    How does my child know what resources are available on campus?

    We offer a First Year Experience Course (FYE) that serves many purposes. First, the course is designed to interactively provide information about resources available to students. Second, life skills are fostered so as to provide a holistic approach to student development. Research indicates that students who take FYE courses have a higher rate of satisfaction with their college experience, graduation rates, and academic achievement.


    What is FERPA?

    The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. These rights include:

    The right to inspect and review the student's education records within 45 days of the day the University receives a request for access.

    The right to request amendment of the student's education records that the student believes is inaccurate.

    The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.

    The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by Colorado State University Pueblo to comply with the requirements of FERPA.


    When is a student protected by FERPA?

    When a student turns 18 years of age or attends a postsecondary institution, the student, and only the student, may access, seek to amend, and consent to disclosures of his or her education records.


    As a parent, what am I allowed to access under FERPA?

    You may only access directory information if your son/daughter has not elected to block it.


    Can my son/daughter grant me access to their education records?

    If your son/daughter chooses to grant you access to their educational records, they may do so by filling out and submitting a "Consent for Release" form to the Registrar's Office. This can be a one-time release or a permanent release. A student can also choose to reverse a permanent release by coming in to the Registrar's Office and filling out appropriate paperwork.


    For emergency purposes, how can I contact my son/daughter?

    In an emergency, please contact the on-campus Pueblo County Sheriffs Office at 719.549.2373 and they can assist in contacting your son/daughter.


    Where do I call with questions about FERPA

    Please call the CSU Pueblo Registrar's Office at 719.549.2498.
