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

3.46 Average Rating
The engineers who are avoiding School of Mines' ridiculous tuition go here, as do pre-meds, pre-vets, and students looking to save for graduate school. The education prepares you for graduate work and for going into work right after graduation, and it's $20,000 or so per year with huge deductibles for in-state and out-of-state students. So imagine about $25,000 for a Bachelor's in whatever you want.
Georgette from Pueblo, CO
The tuition is pretty inexpensive for the quality of education, but on-campus housing and meal plans are expensive. However, the price was worth the great experiences I've had there.
Kimberly from Thornton, CO
If you are a resident and apply for the COF (College Opportunity Fund), the tuition is really not all that expensive.
Eleanor from Colorado Springs, CO
I believe that UCCS is definitely worth the tuition cost. Engineering courses are tough, but the professors here do a great job in teaching them, and I'm sure that the professors for the other majors do just as good a job! UCCS is even cheaper than many other universities around!
Scott from Peyton, CO
OH YEA!!! The tuition is resonable, especially if you have scholarships, grants, financial aid, etc...and the reimburse your money towards the middle of the year if you have extra funds! Fantastic!!
Marcus from Colorado Springs, CO
uccs is a very affordable school. the quality of education you receive is unparalleled to others, comparatively price wise. furthermore, there are copious amounts of grants and scholarships available to offset the cost.
Steven from Colorado Springs, CO
The tuition here is not that bad if you are from instate. There are many programs if you need help paying for school but for the most part, the school is affordable. With the attention of professors and the great school atmosphere, the school is worth the money. You really get everything out of the classes you pay for, and your time and money is not wasted.
Hannah from Colorado Springs, CO
This is really a cost effective method for someone who doesn't have the money for a big state or private institution, but is also either leaving community college, or just wants to go to a 4-year college.
Matthew from Colorado Springs, CO
With multiple events going on every week, UCCS students get their money's worth out of it.
