The University of Colorado Board of Regents today approved tuition rates throughout the system for the 2012-2013 fiscal year.
CU administrators presented two options for tuition, both of which reflected increases over last year, given continued reductions in state funding for higher education. CU absorbs a disproportionate share of those cuts
Regents voted unanimously in favor of the option entailing lower tuition rate increases at three of the university’s four campuses. Rates vary by program; those listed reflect typical arts and sciences disciplines:
University of Colorado Boulder: Tuition will rise 5 percent. For full-time resident undergraduates, tuition will be $8,056, up from $7,672.
University of Colorado Colorado Springs: Tuition will rise 4.9 percent. Full-time resident undergraduate tuition will be $7,050, up from $6,720.
University of Colorado Denver: Base tuition will rise by 0.8 percent. Full-time resident undergraduate students will be charged for 15 credit hours, up from 13 credit hours in fiscal year 2011-12.
On the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, tuition rates as requested by the schools and colleges were approved by the board; the rates include a 3 percent increase for undergraduate nursing students.
