How to Apply

Students seeking financial aid are required to apply 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

New Graduate/Professional Students

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.
