We encourage you to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by February 15 to ensure that you will get full consideration for limited funds. The FAFSA is available starting October 1 for the 2017-18 academic year and must be completed each year. Watch a video for more info on the application.
Submit your final high school transcript that confirms graduation to the Office of Admissions prior to the start of school. Financial aid cannot be applied to your bill until this is complete.
If we need additional information to complete your financial aid application, we will email you and post a "To-Do" item in your student portal MyCUBoulder. "To-Do" items are highlighted on the first page after you log in.
We will email an Estimated Financial Aid Award letter, which will provide you with a financial aid estimate for your planning purposes.
Beginning in March, we will send emails to notify new students of their official financial aid award offer.
Grants, scholarships, and work-study are automatically accepted for you.
Loans must be accepted in your student portal MyCUBoulder.
