We urge students and parents to read the financial aid handbook carefully. It describes the college's costs, explains the financial aid analysis and award, and describes financial aid programs and policies. The college makes every effort to determine who is eligible for aid by using a standardized process. While the family has the primary responsibility to fund a student's undergraduate education, the college is committed to helping qualified students who, without assistance, would be unable to attend. It is necessary for students to re-apply each year for financial aid. The college reserves the right to make changes to financial aid policies without notice.

Students may continue to receive financial aid at CC provided the following requirements are met:

  • Student demonstrates satisfactory academic progress as evidenced by the student's ability to continue enrollment at Colorado College and comply with the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy as stated in the Financial Aid Policies Handbook and the Colorado College Catalog of Courses.
  • Student is enrolled as a full-time student (at least 7 units for the academic school year).
  • Application for renewal of financial aid is submitted by the renewal filing date prior to the academic year for which aid is requested.
  • Eligibility for Colorado College financial aid extends for a total of eight semesters.

The following situations may cause a revision in the original award and should be reported to the financial aid office promptly:

  • Change in enrollment status.
  • Change in marital status.
  • Change in other financial assistance.
  • Change in residence.
  • Other changes in family financial information.

Tuition Remission

If your financial aid award reflects that you will be receiving tuition benefits through the Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM) Tuition Remission Exchange Program or Colorado College Tuition Remission, you are not eligible for merit scholarships. If one is awarded prior to knowing about the Tuition Remission benefit, it will be removed and would be reinstated if Tuition Remission benefits are lost.
