Estimates include annual costs for tuition (Base Rate), fees, housing, food, books and supplies for an undergraduate for the 2023–24 academic year (fall and spring). Costs vary depending on residency classification; number of credit hours; your college, school, program or degree; and whether or not you live on campus. The Colorado Legislature and the CU Board of Regents reserve the right to change the cost of tuition, fees, room and board at any time, and it should be expected that costs will be higher each year.
The good news is that CU Boulder guarantees the same rate of tuition for undergraduate students and families for four consecutive years. The Undergraduate Tuition Guarantee makes tuition and fee costs more predictable and allows students and families to plan for the next four years more easily. New undergraduate students are placed within a cohort that is defined by the date of entry to the university. Each new incoming class can expect to see an increase in tuition from the previous year's cohort group which will then be guaranteed to stay the same for the next four consecutive years, and so on.
