Paying For College - Head Matters


4. College Opportunity Fund (COF)

While COF is not considered financial aid, it’s a way for in-state students to get a break on tuition at Colorado state schools. All Colorado residents who attend a public college or university are eligible for this stipend. But, you must register for it. You only need to register once and you can do it anytime after your 13th birthday.

Because COF is not financial aid, students who meet residency eligibility requirements will receive it regardless of income or academics.  For residents of other states, please check your states Department of Higher Education website for in-state tuition programs.
