Significant Education Discounts for APS Graduates and Staff

We are excited to engage in a new partnership with Colorado State University-Global to provide graduates and staff members the opportunity to pursue postsecondary education and certificate programs at significantly discounted rates. Please identify yourself as an APS graduate, faculty or staff member to your Enrollment Counselor for more information about the discounted tuition rates.

Thanks to the successful passage of APS’ 2016 bond measure, APS and CSU-Global continue to work toward a long-term partnership. An agreement will fund construction of a new building for CSU-Global’s main offices. In turn, APS would receive in-kind lease payments including free and more affordable postsecondary options for APS students, recent graduates and staff.
