COVID 19 Frequently Asked Questions
How do I reach you?

What if I lost my job, was furloughed, or have experienced a loss in income? Can my FAFSA take this into account?
There might be an option to appeal your financial aid. Each circumstance is very different from one student and family to another. The Office of Financial Aid must review each situation on a case by case basis. Please email the Office of Financial Aid with details about your circumstances and we can provide some possible options and next steps.
Will there be any adjustment to tuition and fees?
Tuition: tuition rates for the 2020-2021 year have been frozen at the 2019-2020 rate. View our tuition and fees page for more information.
Fees: we have created a page detailing information about the University’s COVID-19 specific policy pertaining to fees.
At this current time, standard billing applies and CSU’s refund and tuition adjustment policy will follow the university’s regular semester protocols which can be found here: https://catalog.colostate.edu/general-catalog/financial/tuition-fee-adjustments/.
What happens to my financial aid if I withdraw from classes?
If you are able, we encourage you to continue your coursework in order to minimize academic disruption and any negative impacts to your financial aid. If you’re considering withdrawing from courses, please speak with a financial aid counselor! Your financial aid could be affected so we want to make sure you have enough information to make an informed decision before you withdraw.
If I withdraw, is the University offering any type of refund for tuition and fees?
