Tuition and Finances

Cost (and Savings) of Attendance

The CU Denver Financial Services offers more than $21 million in financial assistance to qualified students on the downtown Denver campus each year.

Out of State Discounted Tuition: Fall 2015 - Summer 2016

You are eligible for the discounted amount if you: live outside of Colorado and take all of your CU Denver courses online.

The discounted non-resident tuition (per credit hour) for School of Public Affairs :

  • GRADUATE - School of Public Affairs: $607.00

If you qualify for this rate, you must apply at the Registrar's Office by completing this application and affidavit.

This amount is higher than the standard in-state tuition, but significantly lower than the non-resident tuition amount.  If you have questions, contact your school/college program coordinator.


Some online classes are in CU Denver’s extended campus. The tuition rates of these classes will be set by the schools and programs offering these courses. If you're unsure whether your course is in extended campus or in main campus (and may be eligible for a tuition discount), please contact your school/college program coordinator.
