February 1 is your early action date.

If you’re applying as a transfer for Fall, February 1 is your early action date. But what does that actually mean?

It’s a big deal for financial aid in particular. Here’s what you’ll get if you submit a complete application by this date:

Full scholarship consideration.

If you submit a complete application by February 1, you will get full consideration for our automatic merit scholarships. Transfer applicants who apply after February 1 receive limited scholarship consideration.

Even more scholarship opportunities.

If you submit a complete application by February 1, you’ll have extra time to fill out the Colorado State University Scholarship Application (CSUSA) before it closes on March 1. The CSUSA gives you access to a variety of scholarship opportunities at CSU. Learn more about applying for CSU scholarships.

An admission decision by February 28.

If you submit a complete application by February 1, you are guaranteed to receive an admission decision by the end of the month.

Increased access to on-campus housing.

If you’re planning to live on campus, early access to the housing application is a big benefit, too. Space is limited in our transfer communities so the earlier you complete the application, the better.
