The initial estimated COA for an academic year assumes you will be enrolled full-time for fall and spring. These estimated budgets are used to award financial aid and are published annually.
In addition to the estimated COA Calculator, CU Denver offers a Net Price Calculator, designed to offer individual undergraduate student/family estimates of the net price to attend CU Denver.
Students may appeal for an increase to the standard cost of attendance if they have unusual expenses that are greater than those of the typical student.
The standard COA includes allowances for tuition, fees, books, supplies, transportation, medical insurance, and a reasonable living allowance.
Unusual expenses could include a variety of items.
