Financial Aid

Applying for Aid

How am I going to pay for school? To receive Financial Aid you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).


As part of the Application Process, you will fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Your Financial Aid award is based on a standard Federal formula that calculates the cost of attendance minus your family contribution. Family contribution takes into account family/student income, assets, age, family size, etc. FAFSA is a free application; please be aware that fraudulent websites exist. 
School Code: 001361

Apply for FASFA

Have you or your parent experienced a change in income due to COVID or other extenuating circumstances?

You may be able to use your 2021 taxes or current income information.  In turn, this could update your 2022-2023 FAFSA aid eligibility. Please complete the professional judgement form online.


The Colorado Application for State Financial Aid (CASFA) is now available for students who do not have lawful immigration status, but have resided in Colorado for at least three years before graduating from a Colorado high school.  For more information about CASFA, please visit their website.
