Rates published by the Bursar’s Office are approved by the Board of Regents annually in accordance with the level of cash fund appropriations set for the university by the Colorado General Assembly. The Board of Regents reserves the right to change tuition and fees at any time. Tuition for Coursera programs at CU Boulder is charged by program and credit hours. Tuition for this program is assessed on a linear credit hour basis (each credit hour is the same rate) and continues to increase at the same increment for each hour over 9. Fractional credit hours outside of flat rate tuition are assessed the average rate between the two closest credit hours. Dual degrees are charged the higher rate. These rates apply to Boulder Main Campus only. Classes taken on different campuses and Continuing Education have separate tuition, fees and billing. Rates and deadlines may be subject to change.
