New to CU? If you are a prospective or new undergraduate student coming to CU in the fall or later, please see Costs by Tier.

We know college is an investment, which is why we want to help you understand the cost of college, as well as the value of a degree. For academic year 2021–22, CU Boulder is easing financial burden for students by absorbing the tuition increase approved by the Board of Regents. For one year only, incoming undergraduate first-year students and all graduate students will receive a buy-down credit. Tuition will be applied to the bill along with a credit showing the buy-down amount. Continuing undergraduate students will see no increase in tuition, thanks to the university’s four-year tuition guarantee. The buy-down applies to academic year 2021–22 only: Fall 2021, Spring 2022 and Summer 2022.
