Family and Guest Fees

We’re so glad your student is coming to Western State Colorado University! We feel confident that he or she is in the best of hands, and we’re excited to watch the class of 2019 explore, be challenged and grow during the next four years. We’re sure you are, too! We invite you to join us for this transition by attending Parent & Family Orientation on Aug. 19 & 20.
