Pursuant to statute, C.R.S. 23-7-109, employees and their dependent children who have been transferred to Colorado within the last 12 months by their companies, as part of a state or local economic development incentive, or have been hired as faculty at a Colorado public institution of higher education may be eligible to receive in-state tuition and the College Opportunity Fund stipend (COF).

It is the Board’s policy that in order to verify the student’s eligibility, he/she must provide an official letter on company or institution letterhead signed by a company or institution official stating that the student and/or his/her parent or legal guardian moved to Colorado as a direct result of the company receiving an incentive from a state or local government economic incentive program to move all or a portion of its operations to Colorado. Further, the letter must state the employee worked for the company prior to moving to Colorado or the parent or legal guardian moved to Colorado to take a faculty position with a Colorado public institution of higher education. This policy allowing instate tuition and COF is not retroactive. In addition to this requirement, the legal status of these students must be verified.


This policy applies to all state system community colleges.


The System President shall promulgate such procedures as may be needed to implement this policy.
