Is the tuition charged for a course based on the course or based on the program to which I am enrolled?

Tuition is based on the program of enrollment of the student. This tuition applies to all courses to which you are enrolled. It also applies to courses that you may enroll in across campuses (concurrent registration).

Is medical insurance required?

Students on the Denver Campus are not required to carry a policy, but qualify to purchase the UC Denver Health Insurance Plan. The university highly recommends that students carry some form of health insurance. Denver Campus degree-seeking students are required to comply with the Immunization Policy. This includes students who are on active military duty, studying abroad and online.

What is the process for establishing Colorado residency?

Information for establishing Colorado residency is available on the Graduate School web site.

What happens if I don’t fulfill all of the requirements to establish Colorado residency within the time frame established by the university after I arrive for school?

You will not be declared a Colorado resident and will be subject to out-of-state tuition for the entire semester one year from matriculation. This means that you will be billed at the higher, nonresident rate for that semester.

How do I petition for in-state residency?

Instructions for petitioning for in-state residency and links to the required forms are located on the Graduate School website.
