Third-party sponsorships

MSU Denver plays a major role in educating Denver’s workforce. As a business-friendly university, MSU Denver offers a convenient way for businesses and public sector organizations to subsidize the cost of attendance.

If you have financial aid, your award will be applied to your tuition and fees first and refunds from third-party sponsors will not be issued until after payment has been received.
