‡ The Resource Fee covers all technology resources as well as the CCU bookstore’s Slingshot Premium (formerly Tree of Life Textbook Butler). Slingshot Premium is an unlimited service, with all textbooks shipped to students at no additional cost. Rental books are shipped to the address on file at CCU, and will arrive approximately one week prior to the class start date. Information on accessing digital resources are sent to the student via email. Students who register less than 10 days prior to the class start date will incur an additional expedited shipping fee for physical books. The resource fee is non-refundable for students who administratively drop or withdraw from a class after the drop deadline. Students who are registered for courses with no required textbooks, or if there is no use of the Slingshot Premium for whatever reason, a lower resource fee will apply. All required textbooks are included in the resource fee.

For questions, call or email the Service Central office to speak with a Service Specialist about your CCU charges: 303-963-3040 or 800-25-START. Current account information is always accessible in your Self-Service Finance account.

Courses must be dropped before the drop deadline in order to receive a full reversal of tuition and fees. Students are financially and academically responsible for any course(s) not dropped by the drop deadline.

Note: Tuition and fees may be subject to change without notice.

* Additional discounts and institutional scholarships cannot be combined with these discounted tuition offerings. Discounted tuition is offered to students who start classes on or before August 22, 2022, and the discounted tuition rate for these courses will be locked as long as the student does not take a break from classes for more than 365 days.
