Resident Student Tuition: As a public institution of higher education, the costs of educating resident students at the University of Colorado must be paid primarily by a combination of appropriations from the state of Colorado and tuition charges to resident students. Therefore, the most significant factor affecting tuition rates for resident students is the appropriation from the state. The regents will annually establish tuition rates for resident students only after the state has indicated the amount of state revenues that will be provided to the university.
Non-resident Student Tuition: Tuition rates for non-resident undergraduate students should be established so that the revenues from tuition exceed the costs of educating the non-resident undergraduate student.
