Summer Financial Aid Application Open
Summer Work-Study Begins
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.
The Office of Financial Aid makes every effort to help you make an informed decision about attending the University of Colorado Boulder 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.
International students are not eligible for federal financial aid. You may apply for federal aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) if you become an eligible non-citizen. The Office of International Education may have other resources available.
If you are not formally admitted into an undergraduate 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 our office to have their benefits certified.
