Financial Aid

If you are interested in receiving financial assistance through federal loan programs, you should complete the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The FAFSA is completed online by going to Follow the instructions provided to secure a “PIN” number and save the number for further use. The University of Colorado Boulder treats the summer term as the final semester of the academic year. If you desire FAFSA assistance for the duration of the Executive MBA program, you will need to complete three total forms:

  • For the 2024-2025 academic year (fall 2024, spring 2025), a 2024-2025 FAFSA must be completed.
  • For the 2025-2026 academic year (fall 2025, spring 2026), a 2025-2026 FAFSA must be completed.

Quick Steps to Financial Aid

  1. Complete the appropriate FAFSA using your Federal PIN to sign the form online.
  2. Once completed online the FAFSA processors will send to CU-Boulder electronically. The CU/Boulder school code is 001370.
  3. Accept the loan amounts you wish to receive for each semester. Complete the master promissory note by going to using your FAFSA PIN number.
  4. Financial aid for the Executive MBA program is managed by the Division of Continuing Education.
