College & Scholarships
Applying to post-secondary institutions can be a detailed and time consuming process. Deadlines vary with most four-year university deadlines being in January or February of the year you are planning to attend, while community colleges and some other colleges are rolling admissions throughout the year. See James, Kat, or Heather G to help you through this process.

Tips: Do your FAFSA as early as possible between October 1 and April before you want to start college. Also, fill out your Colorado Opportunity Fund (COF) to get a stipend per credit at Colorado colleges.
