Financial Disclaimer for the 2024-25 School Year: During the 2024-25 academic year, some or all of the instructional formats may change due to an emergency situation affecting college operations, public safety, or public health, including the COVID-19 pandemic. Tuition and fees are charged at the beginning of the semester and will remain in place regardless of any changes in instructional format. Tuition and fees will not be refunded in the event the curriculum delivery format changes for any part of the 2024-25 academic year.

To receive a tuition refund or adjustment, students must drop classes by the deadline listed in the class schedule. No refund or adjustments will be made after deadline unless documentation of extenuating circumstances, such as extended illness of the student or immediate family member or extended unplanned military service, can be provided.

Tuition Appeal forms are available digitally on the pikespeak.edu website under registrar forms.

Tuition Appeal Medical Documentation forms must accompany the tuition appeal form if the appeal is medically based.

Appeals for past school years cannot be considered. Contract programs may have different refund procedures.

Please email TuitionAppeal@pikespeak.edu with any questions about the refund/adjustment process that relates to tuition appeals.

Residency in the State of Colorado

To be considered a Colorado resident, a student must show proof of residency in the state for the immediate 12 months prior to the start date of the semester, and meet other requirements.

If you are a new student who has been classified as a non-resident and feel you are a resident or if you are a continuing non-resident student and feel you now meet residency requirements, you must petition for this change by the first day of the semester you plan to attend.

Turning in a petition does not guarantee you will be changed to resident status. If your appeal is denied and you do not drop your classes by the drop date, you will have to pay non-resident tuition.

Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Program

Residents of Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming qualify for a special tuition rate.

Students interested in participating in WUE must complete a WUE application every semester. Because WUE students declare that they are maintaining residency in a state other than Colorado, they are not eligible for the Colorado Opportunity Fund stipend, and must not be establishing residency in Colorado during their program.
