Working with the Office of Financial Aid & Student Employment

Please allow up to 3 days of response time.  We will do our best to address your request as we are able; our timelines depend on the mix of priorities and responsibilities in our work at any given time. We appreciate your patience as we balance the diverse needs of different stakeholders.

Colorado College views the financial aid process as a partnership between students, parents, and the institution. Many families are able to afford Colorado College with the combination of grants, modest loans, reasonable work opportunities, and family resources.

We meet 100% of your family's eligibility for need-based financial aid at Colorado College, using a combination of donor-funded scholarships and campus grants, federal loans and work-study options when you complete the financial aid application process by posted deadlines.
