About COF

The College Opportunity Fund (COF), created by the Colorado Legislature, provides a stipend that pays a portion of total in-state tuition for eligible undergraduate students who attend a Colorado public institution or a participating private institution.

You're eligible for COF if you're all of the following:

  • An undergraduate student.
  • Classified as a Colorado resident and being charged in-state tuition (some exceptions apply).
  • Admitted and enrolled at a Colorado public institution (e.g., CU Boulder) or a participating private institution.

The stipend is paid to the institution on a per-credit-hour basis at an amount set annually by the General Assembly. Check the official state COF website for the current amount.
