CU Money Smart Week
Deadline to Apply for CU Achieve Summer Grant
Last Day of Classes
How to Apply
All students are required to apply for financial aid every year. Start the process by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Although applying for financial aid is basically the same for all students, there are additional requirements and/or rules for different populations. For a tutorial on completing the FAFSA, see www.colorado.edu/finaid/fafsasteps.html.
New Graduate/Professional Students
Graduate/Professional Students who enroll in a minimum of four (4) credit hours each semester can apply for financial aid.
New Law Students
The Office of Financial Aid makes every effort to help you make an informed decision about attending the University of Colorado Law School by providing financial aid award estimates prior to the admissions confirmation deadline. It’s helpful to understand when and how our office will communicate with you.
Continuing Graduate/Professional Students
Applying for financial aid is a little bit easier if you are a continuing student. You must be enrolled in a minimum of four (4) credit hours each semester and you still have to complete the FAFSA, but there are fewer steps to complete the entire process.
If you are not formally admitted into a graduate program, but would like to enroll in preparatory courses necessary for admission, you may enroll through Continuing Education. Federal loans may be available to you on a limited basis.
Students who are eligible to receive veterans’ educational benefits will work with Veterans Services to have their benefits certified.
