Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
Very affordable, as colleges go. Coloradans can attend for around $4,000 per semester (easily covered with a modest scholarship or two); non-residents, about $14,000 per semester (a significant difference, but still a lot less than at most other colleges). Considering the overall quality, I'm calling this a pretty good deal.
Kalee from Pueblo West, CO
In comparison, CSU-Pueblo is very competitive in costs. There are many new programs and opportunities here.
Daniel from Canon City, CO
Even with my measley scholarship and a full course load, tuition for me is only in the hundreds. It's definitely affordable for me.
Alycia from Mountain Home Afb, ID
The cost of yearly tuition for out of state students is exactly $7,060 for 12 credits a semester! It doesn't get any better than that to me. You will have a hard time trying to find a university that will beat that -for out of state-
Keyandra from Detroit, MI
Yes, I am getting a rigorous state base university education at a great price!
Melanie
You get a beautiful campus, fantastic teachers and a great education all for around 40 dollars per credit hour, give or take some for the department.
Shelby from Parker, CO
Of course any college is costly but the education, experiences, and friendships that comes with it is worth every cent.
Jessica from La Veta, CO
If you graduate in four years you get $1,500!! :)
