Important info: 


We know paying for your education is top of mind.
We work hard to make a CU Denver education not only accessible, but also affordable to all students. We award scholarships to students based on a wide range of criteria from academic merit and leadership to an individual’s status as a first-generation college student. Plus many grants, loans and work-study options are available to help offset the costs.
