Step 2: Sign up for the
College Opportunity Fund (COF)

Why pay more for your college education? The College Opportunity Fund, or "stipend," is money set aside by the state to invest in your education. Currently, you’ll save $62 per semester credit hour when you sign up, and that adds up to Big $$. To be eligible, you must be a qualified Colorado resident. Sign up today - it's easy and it's fast! To apply go to http://cof.college-assist.org. You’ll save a bundle on tuition.

Step 3: Apply for Financial Aid

Getting financial aid for college is easier than you think – the trick is getting your application in early. All it takes to apply for all different kinds of financial aid, including grants, loans, scholarships and Student Staff programs, is a single application form, called the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). But the earlier you get your application in, the better your chances to qualify for a good financial aid package. So get started today - apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov, or pick up an application at any PPCC Enrollment Services Center. Need help? Speak to one of our Financial Aid Advisors at 719-502-3000.

Step 4: Take the Placement Assessment

This is one test everybody aces. It’s a quick evaluation of your basic skills that helps your advisor, and you, know where your college education should start. If you have ACT or SAT scores already, or if you’ve taken college classes before, you might not need a placement test. But to be on the safe side, contact the Testing Center today at 719-502-3370.
