Indirect Costs

In addition to tuition and fees owed directly to university of the Rockies, you may incur other costs while you are pursuing your education which will not be billed by the University. The indirect costs that are part of the cost of attendance include digital course materials and supplies, room and board, transportation, and personal expenses, as well as loan fees, if applicable. These indirect costs are based on estimates using moderate standards of living set forth by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education for on-campus students. Each student's Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is subtracted from standard costs of attendance to determine a student's financial need for purposes of packaging financial aid. An estimate of the allowance for these costs for an academic year is as follows:

  • Room and Board: $9,072 per AY
  • Transportation: $1,296 per AY
  • Personal: $3,690 per AY

If you have any exceptional expenses, such as dependent care or disability expenses, that would require modifications to the standard cost of attendance budget, please contact the Financial Aid office. Please be prepared to provide documentation when you make your request for a modification.

+++ The Technology Services Fee is a one-time fee, applied on the 2nd week of enrollment, post start date for degree seeking students to provide the student with initial configuration setup to University systems such as the online learning platform and other academic support systems. The Technology Services Fee is fully refundable until attendance in the 7th week of enrollment, at which time the fee becomes non-refundable.

Other Expenses:

Audit: Students approved to audit a course must pay tuition equal to 50% of the normal course tuition. The audit fee must be paid prior to the start of the course.

Tuition Payment Policy

Your tuition and fees are due in full on or before the first week of each course. An exception may be made if you have completed all required financial aid paperwork prior to the start of the term and your financial aid is significant enough to cover all current term charges. There will also be a limited exception for those students using tuition reimbursement, military tuition assistance or direct bill as their method of payment. You are responsible for the amount that financial aid does not cover and it must be paid in full on or before the first week of the each course.

Acceptable forms of payment are:

  • Cash
  • Personal check
  • Money order
  • Credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express)

You are encouraged to speak to the Financial Aid Office if you are unable to pay the balance owed. University of the Rockies will withhold transcripts, degree verifications, and grade reports until accounts are paid in full.

Delinquent Accounts and Financial Hold

Your account is considered delinquent if full payment is not received the first week of the course resulting in an outstanding account balance. Any student with a delinquent account will be put on a financial hold and not be allowed to register for a subsequent term until payment is received in full or a payment plan is established and approved by the Financial Aid Office. If you have a delinquent account, you will not be permitted to take comprehensive exams, obtain copies of official transcripts, or graduate.

An administrative fee will be assessed to your account for any outstanding balances, late payments or insufficient funds.

Payment Plans

Payment plans allow for students in a non-term format to maintain continuous enrollment by offering them the ability to make monthly payments to cover any outstanding charges they have incurred throughout the course of their program.

Stipend Checks

A stipend check is only available when you have a credit on your account after tuition and fees have been paid in full. If you authorize the school to retain funds and then would like to request a stipend, you must fill out a Disbursement Request Form which is available online. If you do not authorize the school to retain funds the stipend check will automatically be generated and mailed to the address on file within 14 business days.
