Winter Session tuition matches that of CE Online Credit; it is assessed at a per-credit hour rate in addition to any tuition paid on main campus. A single rate is charged regardless of a student’s in-state or out-of-state classification.
2023-2024 Academic Year
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.
