Program Costs: What Does This Mean?

Program costs are depicted on program pages and in our program search by symbols that are meant to be approximate representations of what a student will typically spend for a semester at CU. Here are some general ranges:
Symbol Comprehensive Semester Program Costs Comprehensive Summer Program Costs
$ $14,000 - $19,000

Comparable to CU in-state costs
$5,000 - $7,500
$$ $19,000 - $24,000

Between CU in-state and out-of-state costs
$7,500 - $10,500
$$$ $24,000 - $29,000

Comparable to CU out-of-state costs
$10,500 - $13,500
$$$$ $29,000+

Higher than CU out-of-state costs (rare)
* The cost amounts listed above and on our program cost pages are quite comprehensive and include the vast majority of costs/expenses, with the exception of additional vacation travel (i.e. personal travel on weekends or before/after your program).
