    CSU is one of the cheaper public universities but it is still pricey. In state residents will get Commitment to Colorado grants and other grants to encourage them to stay instate and some out of state students can apply to WUE (Western Undergraduate Exchange). But your education from CSU will be worth the cost.

    You definitely should apply for scholarships (the more money the better) but as an out-of-state student who's flight costs $1000 round trip every year, the price is tight but not undoable. And if you put a lot of effort into your classes, the price is worth what you learn, as well.
