One of the most important decisions for enrolling in advanced education is how to fund your studies. This section provides information on potential financial aid opportunities for students enrolled the MACC program. 

Students enrolling in the MA in Corporate Communication program are eligible for federal financial aid. If you are seeking federal financial aid for the 2022/2023 academic year, you will need to submit the 2022/23 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). The FAFSA is available starting October 1, 2021 for the 2022/23 academic year.

Completing the FAFSA as soon as possible will increase your chances of receiving the most financial aid possible - as some funds are first come, first served. Information on loans, other sources of financial aid, and assistance in navigating the application process can be found at CU’s Office of Financial Aid.

Additional Funding

Students enrolling in the MACC program may apply for CU Boulder’s regional grants and awards through the Graduate School after researching their funding website. Similarly, utilizing a scholarship search engine like Scholarship America or Scholly, may also provide unique funding opportunities.

CU also offers a need-based financial aid Work-Study Program for degree students seeking part-time employment opportunities. Work-study jobs are funded by federal and state governments and include both on and off-campus positions. Determination of eligibility is driven by the submission of your FAFSA.
