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.
