Important Information That You Should Know

The U.S. Department of Education requires that institutions ensure financial aid funds are used to pay for courses that apply to a student’s degree program.  This is referred to as the Course Program of Study (CPOS). The CPOS will be considered when determining Federal and State of Colorado Financial Aid eligibility.

Specifically, for federal aid to pay for courses in your degree requirements, it must be part of your program of study or be necessary to earn the total hours required for your degree. Taking courses that are not part of your program of study could result in receiving less federal financial aid and potentially having to pay for courses out-of-pocket.
