Student Budgets

For the purposes of determining financial aid, our office follows the Colorado Department of Higher Education and federal guidelines to develop an estimated, average Cost of Attendance (budget) for different student classifications (commuter/non-commuter, undergraduate/graduate, resident/non-resident, etc.).

Budgets include estimated figures for tuition and mandatory fees and estimated averages for room and board, books and supplies, transportation, and personal (miscellaneous) expenses. Remember; these are estimated averages; your costs may vary.

The tuition costs for undergraduate Colorado residents budget figures include only student share of tuition.Be sure to apply for the College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipend, or you will pay more for tuition.
