In 2019, Colorado students submitted 44,488 admissions applications to technical schools, community colleges and universities during our second Colorado Free Application Day, doubling participation from last year! Read our fact sheet.
Colorado Free Application Day capped off Colorado Applies Month, a statewide campaign that encourages high school seniors to successfully apply to a higher education program and submit their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
What if I missed Colorado Free Application Day?
It's not too late to apply! Applications for Colorado's community colleges and technical schools are always free to submit, and most four-year colleges and universities provide fee waivers in case of financial hardship. Call the admissions office of your school of interest for more information.
