Tuition and Financial Aid

As a national distance-learning program, a differential tuition fee has been established. This means all online ASLEI students pay the same tuition whether they live across the street or across the country. This fee is reviewed annually by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education. For the 2015-2016 academic year, the tuition is $400 per credit hour (in-state or out-of-state students). For planning purposes, tuition costs are projected to increase by 9% annually for the next few years.


  • Instructional materials: approximately $150 per course over the life of the program.
  • Summer session expenses:  approximately $1,000 for on campus residence hall.

The University of Northern Colorado offers a Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) to all degree-seeking students who enroll in courses on our main UNC Campus, an Extended Studies Center or Online.

Degree -seeking undergraduate students enrolled in 9 or more credit hours will automatically receive this benefit each term. SHIP premiums will appear on your semester bill. If you have comparable insurance coverage, and do not want to be charged for SHIP coverage, you must opt out of this plan each Fall via an online waiver process.

*Immunizations: This is not required for online students. If you get an immunization hold put on your account, notify us and we will work with you to get that taken off.
