How to apply to COF

  1. Apply for the stipend on the state website

  2. AUTHORIZE using your COF benefit when you register for classes

    After applying, you must authorize the use of the stipend through the WebOpus account under Student Services, My Billing Information, and then Authorize COF Stipend. Verify your authorization by choosing COF Stipend Authorization History in My Billing Information. We recommend selecting the Lifetime Authorization so that you will not need to make this selection every semester. You can change your preference late

  3. Make sure your social security number and date of birth are on file with FLC to apply COF to your student account.
