Welcome to CU Boulder! We want to make sure the start of school is as easy for you as possible. Below is a checklist of important items, many of which you can probably already check off.
___ Complete Any To-Do Items or Holds
Check the Holds and To-Do Items section in MyCUInfo for specific action items or requested information.
___ Submit Your Final Transcript(s)
Transcripts must be official and submitted directly to CU Boulder (firstname.lastname@example.org) from the issuing institution. Students who do not complete this step won't be able to enroll in Fall 2017 classes, and students receiving financial aid won't have that aid applied to their bill until this step is complete.
___ Apply for and Authorize the College Opportunity Fund (In-State Undergrads Only)
The College Opportunity Fund (COF) is the state's method of providing financial support to in-state undergraduates. you must complete two steps: 1) submit the one-time application at College Assist by May 5, and 2) authorize the use of funds in MyCUInfo by May 11.
___ Register with Selective Service by Feb. 22 (Males Ages 18–25)
If the U.S. government identifies you as male and you're between the ages of 18 and 25, you must complete your one-time Selective Service registration. Failure to comply by Feb. 22 results in a registration hold. See Register with Selective Service for more information.
___ Authorize Your Financial Aid to Pay All University Charges
With your permission, federal student loans and the Pell Grant can pay for university charges beyond tuition, fees and on-campus room and board (e.g., health insurance, parking fees, optional student fees and textbooks). See Apply Federal Aid to All University Charges for more information.
___ Complete Required Loan Documents
Federal Direct Loans (subsidized and unsubsidized) and PLUS Loans require entrance counseling and a Master Promissory Note (MPN) to be completed by the borrower. Both can be completed at studentloans.gov.
