Here is some useful information to help you apply for financial aid for the first time at the University of Colorado Boulder.

  • To review your financial aid application status, log in to your student portal.
  • Beginning as early as February, we will email an Estimated Financial Aid Award letter to help you plan ahead.
  • We will email Financial Aid Award Offers to new students once they are available to accept or decline.
  • Grants, scholarships, and work-study are automatically accepted for you.
  • Loans must be accepted online in your student portal.
  • Federal Direct and Federal Graduate PLUS loans require a Loan Agreement (also referred to as Master Promissory Note or MPN) and entrance counseling to be completed at, but typically this only has to be signed the first time a loan is borrowed.
  • Review the Law School's website for additional information about financial aid and an example budget.
