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

3.65 Average Rating
Goes along with the last comment. Pretty much everything is included what you pay, so you pay for just whatever extra you do at places you go, but like I said, there are lots of things to do that don't cost money, especially if you don't mind window shopping.

UCD is great when it comes to its pricing! It was actually cheaper for me to go here then to stay home and go to one of the major universities in Hawaii.
Kara from Kapolei, HI
Your money does go a long way at CU Denver, good education at a reasonable price.
Jose from Brighton, CO

Anyone who's been researching colleges and costs for attending, is aware of the skyrocketing prices colleges are asking for today. UCD pushes away the 60 thousand, 40 thousand, even 20 or 10 thousand dollar tuition costs and gives you the opportunity to attend a prestigious university without ripping a hole in your wallet.

This campus has three colleges on it. The University of Colorado Denver, Metro State College (which just got it's accreditation to be declared a University and not just a College) and the Community College of Denver. There are students across from the socioeconomic board, lifestyle, and goals. It is also a hub for international students. What most students love, is the RTD Light Rail, which goes to and around Denver. You pay for a sticker, which is a fraction of the cost for a ticket for every day and a regular pass. Having this saves you a lot of money on parking and you can use it everyday, all day...at any time.. Going here also gets you discounts for other events hosted by the city of Denver.
Nicole from Morrison, CO
Classes are extremely affordable at UCD, especially for in-state students. In addition, many of the resources offered to Community College of Denver or Metropolitan State College of Denver students are available to UCD students, which maximizes the benefits one can receive from student fees.
Catherine from Parker, CO
As i said, for the education i'm getting i should be paying a lot more. The possibilities that they offer are great in the aspect that they can make it work. If you are having a hard time paying for something the college is very willing to help you in anyway they can so you can succeed. It's their primary objective and it's helped so much this year.
Jesse from Littleton, CO
While I think education is invaluable and priceless, the tuition does increase every year as a result of lack of state funding to this public institution. I also pay out-of-state so any small tuition increase is definitely not appreciated. That being said, you do get a thorough education despite the cost.
