The FAFSA helps you determine your financial aid eligibility, including grants, loans, and work-study employment that you can use to help pay for your college education.
Submit a FAFSA application
We award financial aid on a first-come, most-in-need basis. Meeting the suggested FAFSA submission deadlines is essential.
Late applicants can be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant or a Federal Direct Loan, but need-based funds from FLC might not be available for late applicants.

Undocumented students, new or continuing, are eligible for in-state tuition through FLC's ASSET program if they have attended high school in Colorado for at least three years immediately before graduation or completion of a Colorado GED.
The Colorado ASSET Bill allows undocumented students to be considered for financial aid from the state of Colorado. Students must complete the Colorado Application for State Financial Aid (CASFA) to be considered.
*ASSET Students do not need to complete the FAFSA application.
Students have to show "financial need" to receive some types of federal, state, and private financial aid. When a student completes the FAFSA, the Federal Department of Education uses a formula to determine a student's Expected Family Contribution (EFC). The Financial Aid Office uses your EFC number to determine your eligibility for different types of financial aid.
Need-based aid is financial aid you can receive if you have financial need and meet other eligibility criteria. You can't accept more need-based aid than the amount of your financial need.
The following are examples of federal need-based student aid programs:
