Cost of Attendance
Below, you'll see estimated costs for students enrolled in College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences (CAHSS) programs.
We do not automatically assume students in CAHSS will take courses in the summer quarter, so you won't see those costs listed below. Eligibility for financial aid for the summer is limited; if you need aid for the summer term, you must complete a separate application in the spring.

2020-2021 Academic Year Costs
These costs reflect the 2020-2021 academic year (three quarters—fall 2020, winter 2021, and spring 2021), and should be used for general planning purposes. Your individual costs may vary depending on your program, the term and year you started your program, and the number of classes you take each quarter.
Denver Publishing Institute
The Denver Publishing Institute is a 4-week, non-degree program available through the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences.
Costs for Summer 2021:
The total cost for the 2021 program is $6,948:
*This is the cost of the required meal plan, which covers lunches and a few special events.
**This is the cost for living in an on-campus residence hall throughout the program, which is optional.
Because students in this program are non-degree seeking, federally-funded financial aid—including student loans—is not available. If you need financing for this program, you may consider applying for a private education loan through bank or credit union.
Not all lenders offers education loans to students in non-degree seeking programs. When shopping for a loan, be sure to ask the lender if their product is available to non-degree seeking students before submitting an application for the loan.
On your application, the loan period should be 7/11/21–8/6/21. Approved funds will disburse to your DU student account on 7/1/21 to pay toward your charges.
