CASFA- Colorado Application for State Financial Aid

The Colorado Application for State Financial Aid (CASFA) is the application by which students that meet the qualifications can apply for this aid.

Students who do not have lawful immigration status and who do not meet the qualifications listed above are still encouraged to apply for institutional aid using the CASFA.

Students who are eligible for Federal Title IV aid by completing the FAFSA should not complete the CAFSA.

In 2022, the General Assembly passed HB22-1155, In-state Tuition For Colorado High School Graduates, which updates the eligibility criteria for Colorado students to receive in-state tuition.

The law requires an institution to classify a student as an in-state student for tuition purposes if the student:

  • Graduated from a Colorado high school or was physically present in Colorado for at least one year immediately preceding the date the student successfully completed a high school equivalency examination in Colorado; and
  • Has been physically present in Colorado for at least 12 consecutive months prior to enrolling in an institution.
  • There is no longer a requirement for the student to be admitted to college within 12 months of graduation.

If your parent cannot electronically sign your CASFA application, please send their signed materials to: CASFA Office, 1600 Broadway, Suite 2200, Denver, CO 80202
