What is Colorado Free Application Day?
For the second year in a row, the Colorado Department of Higher Education teamed up with colleges and universities across Colorado to waive college application fees for all Colorado students on Tuesday, Oct. 15, 2019. That means if you submitted your application between 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. that day, you could apply for free to any public institution in Colorado and many private institutions as well.
Colorado Free Application Day was created to encourage Colorado’s best and brightest students to further their education in the state of Colorado. In 2018, Colorado students submitted almost 23,000 applications to Colorado colleges and universities for the state’s first free application day. As a land-grant institution, CSU is committed to removing barriers to higher education, and officials hope even more students take advantage of this year’s free application day.
In addition to submitting your application without a fee, Colorado transfer students may also be eligible for free community college transcript submissions throughout the month of October.
