Colorado State University-Global Campus (CSU-Global) has once again been granted approval by the Colorado State University System Board of Governors to keep its tuition rates steady for the upcoming academic year. With its May 2nd Board of Governors approval, CSU-Global will maintain its rates of $350 per undergraduate credit hour and $500 per graduate credit hour, marking the seventh consecutive year without an increase in costs to students.

CSU-Global also does not charge student fees and only charges on a per-credit-hour basis, offers the same tuition rates for in-state and out-of-state students, and has always offered a tuition guarantee to lock in a student’s tuition from the time they first enroll until they graduate. The university has not raised its rates since 2011.

“Our mission is to ensure all students have access to affordable, high quality, and career-relevant education that provides a real return on their investment,” said Dr. Becky Takeda-Tinker, president and CEO of CSU-Global. “We take great pride in our ability to provide the highest value possible for modern learners who seek education from a fully accredited, state university that focuses on their unique needs.”

Liberty University is offering special tuition rates and a new program for educators. Teachers are in a unique position. They get paid small salaries, for a lot of work, with the expectation of always continuing their education. Starting in the Fall 2018 semester, in an effort to make education more affordable for teachers and those desiring to become teachers, we have chosen to reduce our tuition rates for the Master of Arts in Teaching and the Master of Education degree programs to $415 per-credit hour (full-time). With the EDCOR discount, that brings the per-credit hour rate down to $352.75 (full-time). With each class being worth three credit hours, this means someone pursuing these degrees can take a class for as little as $1,058.25.

While we are very excited to announce these reduced rates for our education masters programs, we also want to make you aware of a new degree program that is available; our Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration – Educational Leadership. All of these degrees are available 100 percent online. If you have any questions about any of our programs or would like to speak with an admissions counselor, please call 1-800-424-9595 or visit www.liberty.edu. On behalf of everyone at Liberty University, thank you to all teachers!

Regent University’s Institute for Cybersecurity hosted InfraGard’s Faith-Based Security & Safety Seminar May 16, for the local faith-based community. InfraGard is an FBI program, which grew from its Cleveland Field Office, as a way to support the organization’s growing interest and investigative efforts in the cyber world. Now it serves as a partnership between the FBI and the private sector, with 82 chapters located around the United States.

The seminar, titled “Prepare-Plan-Protect,” focused on providing local faith-based leaders with information to help develop and implement security programs and emergency action plans, deter threats and address risks. It featured speakers from Norfolk Fire-Rescue, Sentara Healthcare, Virginia Beach Police Department and the FBI Norfolk Division.

Regent College of Arts & Sciences principal lecturer, Stephen Webb, lectured on “Threat Considerations for Faith-Based Institutions.” “Partnering with the community and those organizations serving the people within those communities is one of the visions of Regent,” said Webb. “The mantra ‘Christian leadership to change the world’ is put into practical application when educators and university officials are able to share resources, facilities, personnel support, and other assets with which we’ve been blessed.”
