The College Opportunity Fund (COF) allows all in-state students to apply for the COF stipend to up to 145 credit hours. If you exhaust your 145 lifetime-credit-hour cap, you may apply to your college for a one-time, one year waiver if you have not yet completed your baccalaureate degree. You may also be eligible for 30 post-baccalaureate hours from COF directly if you are working on a 2nd degree or certificate.
Waiver requests must be received by the last day of a given semester to be considered.
If you have questions about this process, please contact FRCCCOF@frontrange.edu before filling out this form.
