Tuition and Fees
Tuition and Fees
New undergraduate students must submit a nonrefundable $300 deposit, payable through the Office of Admission, by May 1. The deposit is applied to the first quarter’s tuition. The $300 deposit does not apply to University College undergraduate students.
Tuition for traditional undergraduate programs during the regular academic year (fall, winter and spring quarters) is charged at a “flat rate” for students carrying 12-18 quarter hours. Students registering for more than 18 quarter hours, including courses for no credit, are charged an hourly rate per quarter hour over 18. Other academic programs, such as those through University College, are charged an hourly rate and may have different rates. The "flat rate" does not apply to these programs. Tuition rates are the same for Colorado residents and nonresidents. The University reserves the right to make changes in tuition charges and refund policies without advance notice. Tuition and fees are due and payable on the 22nd of the month prior to the first day of the term. If registration activity occurs after the due date, tuition and fees are due and payable on the 22nd of the month following the registration activity. Information regarding payment methods and options can be found at www.du.edu/bursar.
To enhance opportunities for students’ use of technology in and out of the classroom and to provide multiple modalities of student learning, a quarterly technology fee is charged to all students. This fee is based per quarter hour taken. The student activity fee is assessed to all undergraduates and provides funding for various campus activities designed to appeal to the entire undergraduate population.
Late Payment Fee
Registered students for a given term who have not paid or made appropriate arrangements to pay their tuition may be assessed a late payment fee. Every 30 days thereafter an additional late payment fee will be assessed until the account is paid in full.
Student Financial Liability
It is the student’s responsibility to abide by the University’s payment and refund policies. Upon the student's completion of the registration process—and if the student does not withdraw from registration by the end of the fifth day of the term—the student agrees to pay the total amount of tuition and other charges set forth. The student understands that if any payment is not made when due, or if the student withdraws or is required to withdraw from the University for any reason, all remaining tuition and other charges are immediately due and payable. The student agrees to pay all collection costs and charges. If the student has any outstanding overdue charges, the University may recover those overdue amounts by reducing any payments owed by the University to the student.
Students are not canceled from classes based only upon nonpayment. Students who do not officially withdraw from classes and who do not attend are assigned “F” grades and may owe tuition and charges as specified above.
Students with a past-due balance for a given term are not allowed to enroll in classes for the subsequent term; grades, transcripts and other attendance certification are withheld until payment is received.
