Tuition and Fees


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

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 program 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 program will be charged the online tuition rate. Online programs are listed under “Approved Programs” on the Mines Online website.

Mandatory Fees

Mandatory Fees are assessed to students enrolled in an on-campus program 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 program will pay all mandatory fees, regardless of the delivery of the course (in-person, remote, hybrid, etc).

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

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

Financial Aid

Each year, the Financial Aid Office publishes the Cost of Attendance (COA), otherwise known as Financial Aid Budget. This budget can be used to estimate a student’s expenses for the upcoming school year. The components of the budgets are determined by federal and state rules and Financial Aid uses this budget to determine a student’s financial need for grants, loans, and work-study. 

To view a general financial aid budget (COA), please click on the link below that represents your student status. 

Undergraduate Cost of Attendance

Graduate Cost of Attendance

Please note that the ebill statement will reflect actual costs for your student while the budget (COA) uses general amounts for your type of student (i.e. undergraduate, full-time, living on-campus).


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.

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.

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.


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.
