College Opportunity Fund (COF)

College Opportunity Fund

The College Opportunity Fund (COF) was created by an Act of the 2004 Colorado State Legislature to provide state tax dollar financial support to eligible Colorado resident undergraduate students. The state will provide direct funding to undergraduate students through the College Opportunity Fund. Note: This stipend replaces the amount previously appropriated directly to the institutions for undergraduate education and does not represent additional funding from the State for the students or the institutions.

For questions regarding COF or your eligibility, please contact Student Billing at 719.549.2937.
