Colorado Student Financial Assistance Programs

Colorado student aid is appropriated by the state legislature and allocated by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education to eligible Colorado colleges and universities. Colorado student aid awards are made by institutions to students based upon state guidelines and according to institutional policies and procedures. Any aid received must be used for tuition, fees, room, board, books, supplies or other expenses related to attendance at Colorado institutions.

Contact colleges for complete information and details about application procedures and deadlines. Information about other sources of financial aid may be obtained at many local libraries.
