Colorado Free Application Day is October 15!

In recognition of October's Colorado Applies Month, Aurora Public Schools students exploring higher education can submit a college application for free on Oct. 15 to any one of Colorado's 32 public colleges and universities.

“We know applying to college or technical school can feel daunting for students, especially those who are the first in their family to go on to higher education,” said Gov. Jared Polis. “By eliminating this cost barrier, we believe more Coloradans will seize the opportunity to reach higher and get the education and training they need to thrive in today’s workforce.”

To learn how to apply to your desired college or university on Oct. 15, visit https://highered.colorado.gov/FreeAppDayCO.html. Fee waiver instructions vary.
