The College Opportunity Fund (COF) is a state-funded program that provides a per-credit subsidy for residents attending state-supported and participating private colleges and universities. This money, referred to as the COF stipend, is applied to an in-state student’s tuition, provided the student applies for and authorizes its use. The college you are attending will receive the money and it will appear as a tuition credit on your bill. COF rates are set annually by the Colorado General Assembly. Failure to apply for COF or comply with HB1023 could result in your tuition being changed to non-resident. If you do not apply for and authorize its use, you are responsible for both the student share and the state share of all tuition and fees. Please view your tuition bill each term to ensure the COF stipend has been correctly applied to your account. Apply online during the college application process or by going to www.rrcc.edu/cof and click on "Sign up for COF" and then Apply for a Stipend. Be sure to authorize COF when you register for your classes.
