Are You From Colorado? Don't Forget to Activate Your COF!


Are you from Colorado and planning to attend college here in Colorado?  If yes, don’t forget to activate your College Opportunity Fund (COF)!
When it comes to money for college, you never want to miss out on funds available to you.
The College Opportunity Fund, created by the Colorado Legislature, provides a stipend to eligible undergraduate students. If eligible, you must apply, be admitted and enroll at a participating Colorado institution. If you qualify, you may use the stipend for eligible undergraduate classes. Then, the stipend is paid on a per credit hour basis to the institution at which the student is enrolled.
The amount of per credit hour funding is set annually by the Colorado legislature and each eligible undergraduate student can receive stipend funding for up to 145 credit hours.
When it comes to paying for college, every little bit counts so don’t forget to complete this important form.
Also, remember, you can apply now – you do not need to know what college you will ultimately attend.
