As one of only 34 U.S. public research institutions in the Association for American Universities (AAU), the University of Colorado Boulder is all about realizing the positive impacts of new knowledge. From offering dozens of exciting programs in a range of academic fields, to serving as one of the world’s most dynamic research and innovation hubs, to working closely through hundreds of public outreach efforts with communities across Colorado and the world, we take pride in helping our students, faculty, staff and partners turn new ideas into productive outcomes that change lives.
We believe you should know and understand the cost of your education, which is why we offer a four-year guarantee of tuition and mandatory fees for undergraduate resident students.
Every prospective freshman and transfer student applicant is automatically considered for a small range of CU Boulder scholarships.
For incoming Colorado residents who qualify for the federal Pell Grant and meet eligibility requirements, we promise to offer grants and work-study awards to help pay for tuition and other expenses.
