Tuition and Fees

Main Campus Tuition

Degree seeking students registered for main campus courses follow the main campus tuition and fee structure. Non-degree students taking an EMEN and/or TLEN main campus course follow the tuition and fees structure defined under the A&S/Other category on the Continuing Education website.

Distance Education Course Tuition

If you enroll in the distance section of an Engineering Anywhere credit-based course, the tuition is $835* per credit hour for the 2014-2015 academic year. The majority of courses are 3-credit hours, making the cost $2,505 per course. There are no additional fees for taking the distance (online) courses, other than the costs of books, software, or materials required by the instructor. If you receive a fee request from any other department, contact us before sending payment.

If you are a main campus student taking an distance course, note that the tuition is in addition to main campus tuition and you will receive a separate bill for the distance course from the Division of Continuing Education. If you have a question about your tuition bill, setting up a payment plan, paying student fees, etc., contact the Division of Continuing Education Bursar’s Office at 303.492.2212 or email

*Tuition is the same for degree/non-degree, credit/no-credit, and resident/non-resident students.

What happens if my tuition payment is late?

It is ultimately every student's responsibility to pay their bills in a timely manner. Even if a student does not receive a bill in the mail, or their tuition is being paid by a third party, the student is still responsible for payment by the due date. Failure to make payment in full by the tuition due date will result in a stop being placed on the student's account. The stop will prevent the student from obtaining transcripts or registering for any future semester. Additionally, a 1% service charge will be assessed monthly and the account may be referred to the State of Colorado Central Collection Services (CCS).
