Tuition and Fees

Tuition

Tuition rates are calculated based on a student’s residency (resident or non-resident), the number of credit hours they are enrolled in, and on their degree program (e.g. on-campus degree or online degree).

Base rates reflected on the Tuition Schedule do not include course fees, lab fees, health insurance, room and board, etc.

Students enrolled in an on-campus degree will pay the regular tuition and fee rate, regardless of whether the course is offered in-person or remotely.

Only students enrolled in an approved online degree program will be charged the online tuition rate. Online degree programs are listed under “Approved Programs” on the Mines Online website.

Mandatory Fees

Mandatory Fees are assessed to students enrolled in an on-campus degree each semester. For the Fall and Spring semester, students enrolled in 1 – 2.5 credit hours are assessed the Technology Fee and the Student Services Fee. Students enrolled in 3 – 5.5 credit hours are assessed the Technology Fee, Student Services Fee, and Academic Construction Fee. Students registered in more than 6 credit hours are assessed all mandatory fees.

For the Summer semester, students are assessed all mandatory fees regardless of the number of credit hours enrolled.

Students enrolled in an on-campus degree will pay all mandatory fees, regardless of the delivery of the course (in-person, remote, hybrid, etc).

Students enrolled in an approved online degree program will be assessed the Technology Fee.

Students may be assessed additional fees (course, lab, etc) based on their course enrollment.

Colorado Opportunity Fund (COF)

The Colorado Opportunity Fund is a stipend provided to in-state undergraduate students attending a college in Colorado. For more information and instructions about COF, please click on the Information and Policies page.

Student Health Insurance (SHIP)

Mines requires all students to have adequate health insurance as a condition of enrollment. SHIP is automatically applied to student accounts each semester and students who have comparable insurance can submit a waiver to remove the insurance charge.  For more information and instructions on the waiver, please visit the SHIP website.

Room and Board

Room and Board rates vary depending on the housing and meal plan a student selects. To find the rates for housing and meal plans, please visit the Residence Life website.

eRefund

If the student’s account currently shows a credit balance (negative amount), the student may be eligible to receive the credit. To receive the credit, the student must be enrolled in eRefund and submit a refund request through Trailhead. Generally, refunds will take 2-3 business days to reflect in the eRefund account.
