Colorado Resident

Important Steps for Colorado Residents

  • Apply for the College Opportunity Fund
    The State of Colorado created the College Opportunity Fund (COF) to assist Colorado residents with the cost of tuition. If eligible, Colorado residents receive tuition costs credits for $75 per credit from COF. You must apply for COF when attending any Colorado college. If you have applied while attending another Colorado college, you do not need to apply again. Every term, students must authorize the use of COF for that term’s enrollment.
