General Information: Tuition & Program Fees

Interterm is an independent academic period that is separate from the quarters in the traditional academic year. As such, Interterm classes are billed separately from the corresponding quarter. For example, tuition for Winter Interterm and Winter Quarter CANNOT be combined to reach the 12+ hour discounted rate. Learn more about Tuition and Fees


Interterm scholarships are available to eligible students. Need-based and merit-based scholarship awards are granted on a first-come, first-served basis. If you are a student that has no financial need, you may apply for a merit-based scholarship by completing the application below as well. Recipients will be notified of award by e-mail at least one month prior to the beginning of Interterm or sooner.

Students who are eligible to utilize a tuition waiver may either use their tuition waiver or the offered Interterm scholarship. Per DU university policy, they may not use both.
