Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The FAFSA for the 2020-21 year opens October 1.  Apply early and every year to be eligible for maximum financial aid. All you need is your FSA ID and your 2018 tax information. You can use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to import your and your parent(s) 2018 taxes into the FAFSA.  Be sure to file the FAFSA by the priority deadline of March 1 to ensure your access to the best financial aid package available.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at (970) 351-4862 or ofa@unco.edu. We also take walk-in appointments Monday through Friday, 8:00am-5:00pm.
