Tuition and Fees

Individualized Instruction Tuition Rates

Individualized Instruction tuition is determined by your residency and assessed in addition to any tuition paid on campus.

In fall and spring, nonresident students will be charged the in-state tuition rate for Individualized Instruction courses when they also pay the full CU Boulder out-of-state flat tuition rate on main campus. This in-state tuition exception for nonresident students does not apply in summer.
