Tuition and Fees

Tuition for South Campus courses is the current “students share of tuition,” plus the Extended Campus fee of $49 per credit hour, the immunization fee, and the Metro State bond fee. Students new to MSU Denver will also pay a one-time matriculation fee.

Students attending classes at the South Campus do not pay all of the on-campus fees. However, there is an off-campus fee charged per semester hour. Click here to see the tuition and fees for on-campus and off.

The South Campus division of MSU Denver does not receive state support to offer courses.  The fee is used to pay for off-campus facilities, classroom enhancements, computer lab, student lounge, and Wi-Fi access.

Many of the courses at the South Campus are not eligible for the COF/Stipend. However, the student’s out of pocket cost for tuition for the course is still the same as if the course was eligible for the COF/Stipend. Students are not required to pay the COF/Stipend amount. Click here to view Tuition and Fees for Extended Campus.

AT MSU Denver, undergraduate students* pay the same tuition for 12 to 18 credit hours, if they take all their classes on the same campus.**  This could mean six free credits!  The more credits you take, the cheaper your education – and the faster you’ll graduate.  (Please refer to the Tuition and Fees Tables for South Campus [].)

*This only applies to resident students (COF stipend must be applied) or non-resident students.  WICHE-WUE students do not qualify for #6forfree.

**Same campus means:

  • All Main Campus courses;
  • A mix of Main Campus and Online courses; or
  • All South Campus courses (South Campus)
