Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP)

WRGP applicants will be assessed tuition based on the Regent approved graduate rates for the current academic year.

For tuition rates above 18 credit hours, please contact the Student Service Center at 303-315-1800.

Tuition for Courses Taken for No Credit

Tuition for courses taken for no credit (NC) is the same as for courses taken for credit.

Fractional Credit

Fractional credit is regarded as 1 hour in assessing tuition and fee charges.

Mandatory Student Fees

Students are subject to FULL student fees when enrolled for both online and on-campus courses (courses with an in-person component).

Students enrolled in online courses only are responsible for paying the Information Technology and Student Information System (SIS) fees (as well as the matriculation and international student fees, if applicable).

Students enrolled in Continuing Education courses that are off campus are only assessed the Information Technology and Student Information System (SIS) fees.  However, students who are enrolled in courses taught on campus or concurrently enrolled in both Continuing Education and Denver main campus courses located on campus are subject to full student fees.

Out-of-State Online Only (OOSOO)

Out-of-state Denver campus students (students who do not reside in state) who are taking online courses only,  may be eligible for a tuition rate that is 120% of the resident rate for that course.  This rate applies to main campus courses only.

In addition to tuition, OOSOO students are responsible for paying the Information Technology and Student Information System (SIS) fee.

Students who believe they qualify for this rate must apply at the Registrar's office by completing this application and affidavit.
