CRCP

Register

As a member of the CSU community since its inception in 2003, the CRCP has held to one objective…to help students avoid student loan debt. At $1.6 trillion, student loan debt has grown to become the second largest consumer debt in America and many 20-somethings continue payback well into their 30’s. We say, there IS another way! We say, there is no need to delay the college education that will position you for the future you dream of and are planning for. And YES, CRCP students do graduate debt-free.
