Tuition and Finances

Cost (and Savings) of Attendance 

The CU Denver Financial Aid & Scholarships Office offers more than $21 million in financial assistan​ce to qualified students on the Denver campus each year.  We realize tuition and fees are a critical factor in your decision process. There are many discou​nts or a​id that you may be eligible for upon completion of the proper form or application. 

Tuition and Fees 

This Bursar's​ page has current tuition and Fees information. 


College Opportunity Fund (COF) is Colorado's support for higher education utilizing tax dollars. So with it, your tuition is less, but you must complete the COF application during your CU Denver application process in order to receive it​. Since there is no distinction between online and on-campus courses (some institutions are online only) our in-state undergrads can qualify for this stipend regardless if their courses are on-campus or online. 

More details about COF are available through the Office of the Registrar website​.​


If your permanent residence is within one of the 15 Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) participating states, you may be eligible for in-state tuition. Review the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE)​ Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP) information to see if you are eligible.

The states that participate in the WICHE Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP) are:









New Mexico

North Dakota


South Dakota
