COF is a stipend, which means the amount of money per credit hour paid by the state of Colorado on behalf of an eligible undergraduate student attending a participating college in the state of Colorado. The Colorado Legislature sets the specific per credit hour amount for the stipend annually. The current amount can be found on the College Opportunity Fund website.
