2014-2015 Graduate Budget

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; costs will vary by program and enrollment status.

*Important information on graduate budgets: since the vast majority of UNC graduate students attend less than full time, the estimated budgets below are calculated for part time enrollment.  UNC graduate students attending full time may request an increase in their budget to reflect their actual enrollment status.

Student Budgets

The Office of Financial Aid follows the Colorado Commission on Higher Education and federal guidelines in determining cost of attendance and budgets for students living on or off campus.
