How to Get COF
Students must complete two steps (see links to full instructions below):
Step 1- Apply: You can apply for the College Opportunity Fund as soon as you are thirteen years old and you are a Colorado resident.
Step 2 - Authorize: You will automatically be presented with the opporunity to authorize COF when you register for classes. You will register for classes after completing orientation which is called the Online Experience. You will receive emails that will guide you along the path to the Online Experience. Just be aware that you will get the chance to authorize COF at the time of registration.
If for some reason you don't authorize COF during registration, you can do it anytime after that through Buff Portal.
