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 by the due date 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.
If, after completing the registration process, the student does not withdraw from registration by the last day for 100% refund for dropped classes date published on the Academic Calendar on the Office of the Registrar’s website, 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, then all remaining tuition and other charges are immediately due and payable. All amounts not paid when due may begin to accrue monthly late fees. In addition, the student agrees to pay all collection costs and amounts. If the student has any overdue charges outstanding, the University may recover those overdue amounts by reducing any payments owed by the University to the student.
Students are not removed from classes based only upon non-payment. Students who do not officially withdraw from classes and do not attend have “F” grades assigned 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 any subsequent term. Grades, transcripts, and other attendance certifications are withheld and a financial hold placed on the account until payment is received.
