The following estimated graduate student budget is designed to give you a projection of your living expenses and is based on two semesters per year (fall and spring). The living expenses budget is prepared by the CU Boulder Office of Financial Aid for use by all graduate students.

Tuition and fees are just one part of the overall cost to attend CU Boulder. The full cost of attendance for an academic year could include expenses such as on-campus housing and food, books and supplies, and items that are not billed by the university, such as personal expenses, transportation and medical insurance.

These estimates are based on the 2023-2024 graduate professional business program tuition rates.
