Fall 2021 

We are returning to a traditional in-person experience at CU Boulder for the fall 2021 semester, with a few continuing precautions. Beginning with the fall semester, the campus will discontinue the waiver of location-based fees for fully remote/online students. The campus will return to the previous tuition payment schedule, including withdrawals and refunds. Learn more about our plans for Fall 2021 Semester.


Summer 2021 FAQs

See Announcement from the Provost and COO - Summer planning, plus a fall 2021 preview

Tuition will not be adjusted in relation to the modality of courses. CU Boulder continues to deliver on its educational mission to students during COVID-19 through a mixture of in-person and remote courses. The university remains operational with remote and other online student support services and programs. Therefore, there are no plans to issue tuition refunds, partial or otherwise, due to the change in delivery/mode of instruction or services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Location-based fees for Summer 2021 will be waived for students with all remote or hybrid remote/online class schedules (same and Fall 2020 and Spring 2021). Learn more about Location-Based Fee Waivers
