Tuition and Fees

CE Evening Credit Tuition Rates

CE Evening Credit tuition is determined by your class status (undergraduate or graduate) and residency. Graduate students are charged a higher tuition rate than undergraduate students. CE Evening Credit tuition is also assessed in addition to any tuition paid on campus.

However, the in-state undergraduate tuition rate for CE Evening Credit is charged when a nonresident undergraduate degree student pays full CU Boulder out-of-state undergraduate tuition and also enrolls in additional CE Evening Credit courses.
