2021 Colorado FREE Application Day$!


In 2021, Colorado's Free Application Day has expanded to become Free Application Day$! The fourth annual statewide initiative has grown from one day to three days and takes place from Tuesday, Oct. 19 through Thursday, Oct. 21, 2021.

Applicants who submit their admission applications to Colorado's colleges and universities during this three day period can do so for free. Just follow the application instructions listed below.

And remember, while the application must be submitted during this three-day period to be eligible for the fee waiver, applicants can begin working on their admission applications now! Just save your work online and submit the admission applications from Oct. 19 - 21.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to only apply to the institutions they have genuine interest in attending.
