Tuition Rates Per Credit Hour

We're Affordable!

For a Colorado resident, CCD's tuition is $164.20 per credit hour, without student fees. 

What does that mean? Let's break it down.

To complete your associate degree in two years, you should complete a combination of approved credits to equal 30 within the year. Just THINK 30!

One example is 12+12+6=30. 12 credit hours in the fall semester, 12 credit hours in the spring semester, and 6 credit hours during the summer semester.

DO THE MATH.

For one academic year, tuition plus fees equals $6,435.33.

Connect with the Financial Aid Office so you can get that number even lower. In addition, CCD has funds available for scholarships, so don't miss out on applying for that FREE money each year. To help break it down even more, you can also estimate your cost of living, plus books, supplies, and financial aid awards.
