Tuition and Fees

Calculating the Cost of Tuition: The College Opportunity Fund (COF)

The State of Colorado historically subsidized higher education for in-state students by giving money directly to the colleges. In 2004, the Colorado Legislature enacted a law establishing the College Opportunity Fund (COF) as a new way for Colorado to provide state financial support to eligible undergraduate students. With the start of fall semester 2005, this money is being set aside in the form of a stipend for each undergraduate student, in an account the student creates by signing up at the following COF website. The student designates which institutions of higher learning are to receive stipend funds on their behalf. The money is applied to the in-state student’s tuition if the student applies for and authorizes the use of the stipend, and it will appear as a credit on the tuition bill. Currently the College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipend is estimated to be worth $94 per credit hour.
