UCCS tuition to increase 5%

Filed under: Daily News | Tags:

University of Colorado Regents approved across-the-board fall tuition increases today for all three CU campuses.

University of Colorado at Colorado Springs tuition will increase 5 percent, which amounts to an additional $9 per credit hour for in-state undergraduate classes.

Nonresident students pay rates that are roughly double those of Colorado residents. Those students will see a rate increase of 2 percent beginning in the fall.

Graduate students will also see tuition increases, averaging 5 percent. Graduate students enrolling in six credit hours will pay $105 to $128 more than last year.

The 5 percent average increase for UCCS students was below a 9 percent rate cap established by the General Assembly in the appropriations act.

With the increase resident freshmen and continuing sophomore-level students will be $195 per credit hour.

Full-time students usually enroll in at least 12 credit hours per semester, a cost of about $2,340.  

A revised tuition and fee calculator will be available on UCCS’s Web site June 1.
