In State vs Out of State

Under the provisions of the Colorado Revised Statutes, 1973, 23-7-102, a person must have been domiciled with intent to stay in Colorado for one full calendar year prior to school enrollment to be entitled to the resident tuition rate. Establishment of residency requires the adoption of Colorado as a place of fixed and permanent habitation. It involves not only personal presence, but also concurrently the intent to make that residence the true and actual home. Applicants may be required to submit additional documentation substantiating a claim of resident eligibility for tuition purposes.

Any student who willfully gives false or misleading information about residency status for tuition classification purposes will be subject to retroactive assessment of nonresident tuition and disciplinary and/or legal action.

Immigrant or Resident Alien Enrollment

When are tuition and fees payable?

All tuition and fees are due and payable at the time of registration. A letter of authorization from a public agency that accepts the responsibility to pay tuition and fees may be accepted in lieu of the cash payment. Registration is not complete until the student’s obligation is met in full. Exceptions to this policy may be made by the administration. No student will be allowed to register for current classes until all financial obligations from previous terms are cleared.

Other Expenses – Books, Tools, Supplies

Some programs require the purchase of books, tools, supplies, or equipment. Most books and supplies are available for purchase at the college bookstore. Instructors will provide students with a list of any additional items that are required and are not available through the bookstore.
