The College Opportunity Fund

Colorado Residents Must Apply to Offset Education Costs

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

Eligible undergraduate students must apply, be admitted and enroll at a participating institution. Both new and continuing students are eligible for the stipend.

Qualifying students may use the stipend for eligible undergraduate classes. The stipend is paid on a per credit hour basis to the institution at which the student is enrolled. The credit-hour amount will be set annually by the General Assembly.

Students who register for one or more classes (unless they officially drop from the college within the time specified for a refund) are obligated to pay the full amount of their balance. Failure to pay tuition could result in the addition of attorney charges, collection fees, interest and other costs. Students with an unpaid account will have transcripts and grades held and will not be able to register for subsequent terms.
