Winter Break...

  • Scholarships
  • Resume
If you are a freshman, sophomore, or junior:
  • Practice for the SAT/ACT
  • Work on your resume
  • Start looking up colleges/career paths


Seniors - College Opportunity Fund


What is The College Opportunity Fund (COF)?
The College Opportunity Fund (COF), created by the Colorado Legislature, provides a stipend to eligible undergraduate students. The stipend pays a portion of your total in-state tuition when you attend a participating college.
Eligible undergraduate students must apply, be admitted and enroll in classes at a participating college to receive this benefit. Both new and continuing students are eligible for the stipend.
Qualifying students may use the stipend for eligible undergraduate classes. The stipend is paid on a per credit hour basis directly to the college at which the student is enrolled. The credit-hour amount is set annually by the General Assembly.

 Standardized Tests

Colleges want test scores because grading scales and course offerings vary significantly from one high school to another, standardized tests provide colleges one way to compare applicant strengths. Remember that tests represent only one out of many components considered in the admissions process. Scores alone will neither guarantee admittance nor ensure rejection. Not all colleges require standardized tests.

View a list* of more than 800 colleges and universities that do not use SAT or ACT scores for admission. In addition, junior colleges (2-year colleges) do not require standardized tests for admission. http://www.fairtest.org/university/optional
