Tuition is due Monday of the week before classes start. Failure to pay by the deadline or to adhere to a payment plan agreement could result in late fees, interest charges and even disenrollment. While the student risks disenrollment for non-payment, it is still the student’s responsibility to drop classes if the student has no intention of attending.

Once you register for courses, you can view your tuition bill by accessing the Student Finance section of Self-Service.

A student’s cost of attendance includes direct costs paid to the university (i.e. tuition & fees), as well as estimated indirect costs a student will incur, which are not included in their tuition bill (i.e. books & supplies).

The cost of attendance is determined using guidelines established by the Colorado Commission of Higher Education and assumes that students are limiting expenses by sharing housing, utilizing public transportation, etc.

Indirect expenses are estimated to be about $2,435/month. The following demonstrates estimated indirect expenses associated with attending school full-time for 9 months (living off campus).
