Tuition for Courses Taken for No Credit

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

Please Note: The tuition rates below do not apply to or include Extended Studies credit hours. Tuition for each Extended Studies course is charged in addition to tuition for any "Main Campus" credit hours and is established by the individual university department/college offering the course.

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) that 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 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.​​​
