CU Boulder Education Abroad Administrative Fee

Less than 8% of the CU Education Abroad office expenses are paid by the central campus administration (i.e. from students' tuition & fees). So in order to function, the CU Boulder Education Abroad office charges an administrative fee. This fee is essential to fund the operations of the CU Education Abroad office, and a portion of the fee is also placed into the CU Boulder Education Abroad scholarship fund. Most education abroad offices at public universities charge similar fees to their students.

· All students studying abroad on CU Boulder approved education abroad programs are charged an administrative fee.

· Non-residents are charged an additional differential fee due to Colorado law requiring that non-resident students be charged a higher rate of tuition for credit earned in residency.  While non-residents are not paying for CU tuition during education abroad, they are receiving CU Boulder residence credit for approved CU education abroad programs.
