Recently, the Department of Education announced that delivery of financial aid information to colleges and universities is delayed for the 2024-25 school year. CU Boulder relies on this information to generate financial aid offers for students. This latest delay creates uncertainty for students, especially new admits who are making decisions about where to attend to this fall.

In support of our students and families who rely on financial assistance, CU Boulder is extending the confirmation date from May 1 to June 1 for undergraduate students admitted for Fall 2024. The housing deadline is also extended to June 5.

Updated Timeline for Fall 2024 & Spring 2025 Financial Aid

March 15: CU Boulder Scholarship Application deadline for new and continuing students. Transfer deadline remains June 15.

​ March: CU Boulder expects to receive financial aid info from the Dept. of Ed. Students will receive an email notification letting them know we’ve received their aid application. Their status in the Buff Portal will be updated at this time.

 Late April: Financial aid offers begin for all new and continuing students.

June 1: Deadline to confirm admissions extended for first-year undergraduate students

June 5: Housing application deadline extended for first-year undergraduate students

Please know that the timeline for new student orientation and registration will not change. The timing of course registration will also remain the same.
