Even with low tuition, funding your education can be complicated at times. Colorado Mountain College will help you navigate the process and find opportunities that will save you money.

1. Federal and State Financial Aid
Commonly referred to as the FAFSA, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid is your first step. Find out if you are eligible for valuable grants, student loans and work-study jobs. Never assume that you won’t qualify! Fill out the form and get informed about your real options.  To get started, go to FAFSA.

2. Scholarships

Scholarships are a great way to fund your education. More and more are made available every day, and they don’t have to be paid back! You can apply for need-based scholarships which take into account your financial needs, and/or merit-based scholarships that are awarded for academic and personal achievement. Colorado Mountain College offers several scholarships in both categories, but don’t stop there! Visit FastWeb for access to thousands of national awards.
