  • Example - if you had an issue with an online quiz, you could simply call the Canvas help desk at 855-631-2250.

As such, there is a needed course fee to support the above. This allows us to maintain CU Denver's tradition of excellence and unparalleled student satisfaction.

Fee Per Online Course

  • Online Course Fee:$100
  • Hybrid Course Fee:$50
  • Online Lab Fee:$50

Waived Fees

Whether you live in Denver, or anywhere else, if you take your courses entirely online, most of your traditional fees are waived. However, if you take one on campus or hybrid course, you no longer qualify as 'entirely online'. Check out the Fee Breakdown.

Save Time and Money

Of course, if you take all of your CU Denver courses online, you also avoid the incidental fees associated with...

  • Driving/gas
  • Parking
  • Child care

And if you factor in the value of your time, your CU Oline courses become an even better investment, freeing up your schedule to spend with family, friends or whatever else makes you happy.​​​​​​​
