The following information is an estimate of the total average cost to attend Metropolitan State University for the fall and spring semesters. The cost includes tuition, books, supplies, loan fees, an allowance for living expenses, transportation and personal expenses. The living expenses, transportation and personal expense estimates are derived using the Consumer Expenditure Survey and the Indexes of Comparative Costs, both produced by the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics. This is not the amount students pay Metropolitan State, but rather an estimate of the cost to cover all of the expenses listed.

Note: A student's financial aid cannot exceed the cost of attendance. Also, the tuition, fees and living expense amounts listed below are averages and may not be the same as your actual charges.
