College Resources for Students without Documentation

Colorado ASSET

This website has information about Colorado ASSET, which allows eligible students without documentation to pay in-state, rather than out-of-state tuition, as well as receive the College Opportunity Fund stipend at Colorado public colleges. This site will help undocumented students and families, along with the professionals assisting them, to understand and take advantage of ASSET.

Every public college and university has a website with information on ASSET.  Here’s a few samples from local schools:

University of Colorado – Boulder

Front Range Community College

Colorado State University – Ft. Collins

Metropolitan State University of Denver

University of Northern Colorado

University of Colorado – Denver
