Inclusion Programs and Services
This program is named after Lt. Col. John W. Mosley, who is Colorado State's first Black football student-athlete in the record-keeping era. He earned his degree from Colorado State in 1943, and is a proud member of the original Tuskegee Airmen, flying combat missions over Europe in World War II. This program is designed to assist identified African American student-athletes by serving as a resource while strengthening time management skills, encouraging academic success, enhancing leadership opportunities, and creating a sense of belonging and connection to the campus and its surrounding community. Ultimately, the overall objective of the program is to reduce the percentage of academic probation rates, to increase retention rates to matriculation, expose them to positive African American role models who have been through the rigors of academic achievement as a student-athlete and who have earned their degree. We teach leadership skills and start them on a positive path toward life after college.

Ram Post-Eligibility Degree Completion Program
The Colorado State Ram Post-Eligibility Degree Completion Program (PEDCP) is designed to provide financial aid assistance and academic support services for former (post-eligibility) student-athletes looking to return to the university to complete their first undergraduate degree.
Qualified applicants in the Ram PEDCP must first seek assistance from the NCAA through its Degree-Completion Award Program before being considered for the Colorado State Ram PEDCP. Information regarding the NCAA Degree-Completion Award Program can be found at:
Disbursement of Ram PEDCP aid is contingent upon conformity with NCAA Bylaws, Colorado State Athletics policy, and current budgetary limitations. This aid is meant to be used toward tuition, fees and books during the designated timeline to complete an initial undergraduate degree. Room, board or other living expenses are not available under this program. In no case will aid be awarded in excess of the amount of athletically related financial aid the applicant received while a student-athlete at CSU. Any aid request to complete a graduate-level degree or a second undergraduate degree will be denied.

Approval of financial assistance for credit hours exceeding the 30-hour limit is subject to approval by the Ram PEDCP committee.

If the applicant has signed a professional contract, he or she must first seek tuition assistance from that professional organization and provide documentation of approval or denial justification from that professional organization.
