Tuition and Fees

Investing in your future is a big decision. Tuition and fees are based largely on the program that you enroll in. Tuition amount assessed is determined based on which school/college is offering your class, as well as if it is an undergrad or graduate level, and finally your resident status. For more information or to view exact rates, please visit the Bursar's website.

Financial aid and scholarships are available for those who qualify.

All non-resident iLEAD, Informatics and Veteran & Military Health students who are not eligible for WICHE will be billed tuition at a differentiated rate. Standard student and other fees apply. View College of Nursing Tuition and Fees.

Certain out-of-state graduate students may be eligible for discounted or in-state tuition. Review the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) Western Regional Graduate Program (WRGP) information to see if you are eligible.

The Board of Regents of the University of Colorado reserves the right to change tuition and fees at any time.

Urban Underserved Track

What is Urban Underserved Track?

The Urban Underserved Track (previously CU-UNITE) is a longitudinal track started in 2010 by Dr. Allegra Melillo. The Urban Underserved Track (UUT) is designed for students passionate about: working with ethnically and racially diverse populations, serving individuals with limited access to health care and for those interested in working to eliminate inequities in health. The track accepts medical, nurse practitioner and physician assistant students from the School of Medicine, College of Nursing Nurse Practitioner program and the Physician Assistant (CHA/PA) program.
