For Colorado residents

Colorado values its people and education.

College Opportunity Fund (COF)

The College Opportunity Fund (COF) reduces the tuition price for Colorado residents. It's what's known as "Colorado in-state tuition." Because COF is a stipend, you do not need to repay it. Ever.

How to receive in-state tuition

Students must provide clear and convincing evidence of Colorado residency eligibility for in-state tuition in their admission application because tuition classification is determined based on that information.

You have the right to petition to appeal your tuition classification. You must submit a petition to request reconsideration for in-state residency.

FLC Tuition Promise

As a Colorado resident, if your family's income is $65,000 or less, FLC promises your tuition will be covered. You must complete the FAFSA and apply for COF to qualify for FLC's Tuition Promise.

Native American Tuition Waiver

Native student on graduation day at Fort Lewis College, one of Colorado's most affordable colleges.

You can attend FLC tuition-free as a student from a federally recognized Native American Tribe or Alaska Native Village.

You will still have other expenses: student fees, housing, meal costs, books, etc. Tribal and additional scholarships may help cover these costs.

Paying for college

Beyond our low tuition and fees, there are many ways to bring your education within reach. We offer scholarships, in-state tuition, flexible payment options, agreements with community colleges, and more.
