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. View a tutorial on completing the FAFSA.
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.
To ensure a smooth transition, the Office of Financial Aid
works closely with transfer students to assess their financial aid
eligibility at CU-Boulder.
Students Eligible under Colorado ASSET Bill
Beginning Fall 2013, students who are unable to prove they are
legally present in the United States, may qualify for in-state tuition and may apply for some types of financial aid if all the eligibility criteria are met.
Students who are eligible to receive veterans educational benefits will work with our office to have their benefits certified.
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.
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.
