Undergraduate Tuition Guarantee Groups

  • * Continuing Students first enrolled prior to Fall 2022 pay Cohort TUI2223 rates until Summer 2025. See Tuition and Fee Rate Sheet for specific rates by Cohort.
  • Most degree programs at MSU Denver can be completed in four years if a student completes a full-time course load (15  credits or more per semester). The guarantee encourages maintaining a schedule that allows for graduation within a four-year period. Students whose education at MSU Denver exceeds four years will pay the combined mandatory fee and tuition rate assigned to the group that went into effect the year following your initial group. (For example, if you were in Group Q for four years and plan to enroll for one more year, your original guarantee period has ended, and you then move into the current Tuition and Fee rate)
