When a student begins researching higher education institutions, tuition is often the first stop. Undergraduate tuition costs are different for in-state students – students who have Colorado residency – and out-of-state students – those attending CU Denver from outside of Colorado. Tuition and fees are based largely on the classes you take, and which school or college is offering your classes, as well as your resident status. It is important that you understand your residency status because it impacts more than just tuition rates.

Tuition is the amount a student pays for instruction per course at a college or university. Tuition costs are often listed along with additional fees that all students must pay. These fees cover anything from the student wellness center and AHEC facility operation costs to student support services.

Tuition and fees are approved by the University of Colorado Board of Regents, the governing body of the University of Colorado, and may change from those shown here without prior notice. Where appropriate, the rates reflect the College Opportunity Fund​ discounted rate.

The College Opportunity Fund (COF) is a stipend offered to eligible Colorado residents attending a public college or university or a participating private institution in Colorado. It isn’t considered financial aid and doesn’t figure into any financial aid packages offered by the college or university. The stipend pays a portion of your total in-state tuition and is paid directly to your institution on a per-credit-hour basis. This means that you will not receive a check in the amount of the COF, rather, you will see a deduction on your tuition bill. The credit-hour amount is set annually by the Colorado General Assembly. Please check the official state College Opportunity Fund website for the current amount. ​​​​​​​​​
