DU Tuition

  1. 1. In 2015 it was the 144th most expensive college/university in the country to attend and at the time tuition was only $56,077. For the 2017-2018 academic year total cost of attendance, as estimated by the Office of Financial Aid, will be $62,345.
  2. 2. College tuition rates rise an average of 3 percent per year, in comparison to the average income rising at only 0.4 percent per year
  3. 3. CU’s elected board of regents voted to lock in tuition and fees for each entering classes next four years. This came after much frustration from students attending CU Boulder after prices have increase 3%-30% over the past few years
  4. 4. The estimated cost of the new Buildings will be in excess of 20 million USD
  5. 5. DU’s Office of the Provost have just announced a 2.1 million dollar renovation of the men’s ice hockey locker room following the teams Championship winning season.
  6. 6. Alumni have been credited for donating most of the money toward the new Hockey Locker-room, it is still unclear how much of student tuition is being put forward by the school.
  7. 7. It’s estimated that it costs DU 1.75 million USD every 10 years to upkeep their professional grade grass soccer field
  8. 8. Art students are asked to pay an additional 400-500 dollars per class for various art equipment, meanwhile student athletes are not charged for any gear relating to their sport.
  9. 9. A petition has been started by a student Alex Becht to have a 4-year tuition guarantee
  10. 10. The petition is still relatively new but already has 111 signatures from students giving his cause potential validity in the eyes of the provost office.
  11. 11. Three new buildings will being going up in the near future at DU one of which will be an all new first-year dorm, although the older ones will still remain in service
  12. 12. “I can understand the need to raise tuition in order to pay for the many expensive projects DU has recently undertook like the new engineering building, but it’s still unfair to change the price of my attendance while I’m already a student.” –Evan Lewis
