The University of Colorado Boulder provides some grant and work-study assistance for Colorado resident students who are eligible under the Colorado Advancing Students for a Stronger Economy Tomorrow (ASSET) Bill or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Nonresident students are ineligible for need-based assistance or the Colorado ASSET Bill benefit, but are encouraged to apply for scholarships.
Students who qualify for ASSET do not automatically qualify for DACA, and vice versa. A student may qualify for one but not the other, qualify for both, or qualfiy for neither.
ASSET students interested in receiving financial aid should fill out the ASSET Financial Aid Application (también disponible en Espanol). For assistance, contact the Office of Financial Aid at 303-492-5091 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any CU Boulder Scholarships you have or will receive based on your admissions application (i.e. automatic consideration scholarships) will not be impacted by your ASSET/DACA status.
The CU Boulder Scholarship Application is available until February 15 and most scholarships do not require U.S. Citizenship. ASSET students are considered for scholarships that require Colorado residency. For a list of scholarships available through this application, view the CU Boulder Scholarship Search Tool.
Here are a few of good resources:
Students receiving private scholarships from outside the university should follow these instructions to have the checks sent to our office for processing.
Once admitted to CU Boulder, ASSET students should follow the instructions listed on the Registrar's website on how to apply for COF, which is a state benefit that reduces the amount of undergraduate in-state tuition you pay.
