The decision to invest in your graduate education is an important step toward meeting your future goals. Evening MBA students typically use a combination of company-sponsored tuition support and educational loans to fund their educational endeavors.

Estimated Expenses

For the class entering the Evening MBA program in the summer 2021 semester, the cost is $9,586 per semester for six semesters, for a total of $57,516. That rate will not increase during the duration of your program as long as you maintain enrollment in the program.

Financial Aid

If you are interested in receiving financial assistance through federal loan programs you should complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The FAFSA is completed online by going to Follow the instructions provided to secure a “PIN” number and save the number for further use. The University of Colorado Boulder treats the summer term as the final semester of the academic year. Therefore, to receive financial aid for summer of 2021 it is necessary to complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA. For the 2021-2022 academic year a 2021-2022 FAFSA must be completed.

Note: If you are interested in receiving federal funding for the summer of 2021 you should complete the 2020-2021 FAFSA as soon as possible.

Quick Steps to Financial Aid

  1. Complete the appropriate FAFSA using your Federal PIN to sign the form online.
  2. Once completed online the FAFSA processors will send to CU-Boulder electronically. The CU/Boulder school code is 001370.
  3. Accept the loan amounts you wish to receive for each semester. Complete the master promissory note by going to using your FAFSA PIN number.
  4. Financial aid for the Evening MBA program is managed by the Division of Continuing Education. For more information please contact a Financial Aid Advisor at 303.492.5091, or at
