CHA/PA tuition by year can be found on the School of Medicine website. The Physician Assistant program tuition appears in two different tables - one table for residents and one for non-residents.
Residency requirements are set by the Colorado legislature. Requirements for residency tuition are available at the registrar's website. Students starting the program as non-residents may apply for residency tuition for the semester after residency is established.
Government loans and scholarships are available, but limited. UCD Financial Aid applications are available to accepted CHA/PA students. If financial aid is needed, applicants MUST file the FAFSA form available at most colleges and high schools every spring. The Health Sciences Center financial aid officers will work with students in need of financial assistance once they are accepted into the program.

The majority of students finance their education through financial aid. In addition, there are several scholarships available for matriculated students which can help defray the cost of attendance.
