Graduate Tuition & Fees

Use the tuition calculator to estimate your tuition rate per credit and annual tuition cost according to your degree/program, and find the most common fees assessed to graduate students

The tuition calculator only estimates your charges; it does not reflect any scholarships, tuition waivers, or other aid that would reduce your cost. Wondering what your out-of-pocket costs will be? If you've already received your financial aid offer, you can estimate your bill to determine what you might owe each quarter/semester after your aid has paid.

How to use the tuition calculator:

  • Select "plan to enroll" if you're a prospective student looking for the tuition rate for a program you're interested in applying to. Select "currently enrolled" if you're currently enrolled in a DU graduate program and wish to view that program's tuition rate.
  • Be sure to select the correct academic year:
    • The current academic year is the 2022-2023 academic year, which includes the 2022 fall term, and the winter, spring, and summer terms of 2023.
    • The next academic year is the 2023-2024 academic year, which includes the 2023 fall term, and the winter, spring, and summer terms of 2024. Tuition rates for the 2024-2025 academic year will not be available until early 2024.
  • The number of credits you will take per year will depend on your program. If you aren't sure, contact your academic department. For three quarters (or two semesters for law programs):
    • Full-time students generally take between 30-54 credits per year.
    • Part-time students generally take between 12-24 credits per year.
