Grants are free money and do not have to be repaid. They are typically given to low-income students. If you are eligible for grant aid, your package may include a combination of Federal, State and CU Boulder grants up to the maximum grant amount you are eligible for.
The Federal Pell Grant is the only grant that will be available for all students eligible. All other grants are provided on a first-completed, first-served basis based on when students complete their FAFSA and any supplemental documentation requests.
Grant awards are divided into two equal payments for fall term and spring term, unless otherwise noted. All grant award amounts may be pro-rated if you enroll less than full time.
