For tuition purposes, students are considered either in-state or out-of-state when they apply for admission. This practice is governed by Colorado statute. To be entitled to in-state tuition, students must live in Colorado and fulfill specific citizen responsibilities for one full calendar year before they register. Contact the Enrollment Services Centers for more information or see the second page of the Application for Admission form.
Active Duty Military and their dependents. The Education Services Office on the student’s base will certify his or her eligibility by completing the military resident classification "green form." A separate "green form" must be submitted to the Enrollment Services Centers prior to the census date each term for which the in-state tuition rate is requested. Failure to submit the form each term will result in loss of in-state tuition. There is no appeal after a term is completed.
Olympic Training Center. Olympic athletes may pay in-state tuition rates. Student status must be verified by the U.S. Olympic Training Center. A separate form must be submitted to the Enrollment Services Centers prior to the census date each term for which the in-state tuition rate is requested. The College has no obligation to honor late requests, in which case the student may be held responsible for payment of the non-resident tuition rates.
