Resident Tuition and Fee Schedule - On Campus Instruction
*The college reserves the right to change tuition and fees in accordance with state law.
The State of Colorado subsidized in-state resident tuition by directly paying part of each credit hour directly to the colleges. This money, known as College Opportunity Fund stipends (COF), is applied to an in-state student’s tuition if the student applies for and authorizes the use of the stipend. Currently the College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipend is estimated to be worth $40.00 per credit hour.
Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)
Students who are residents of states participating in the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) are eligible to request a reduced tuition rate of 150% of Colorado resident tuition at Otero.
