Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office at CHU helps students with the process of applying for federal student financial aid, and provides guidance, resources and advice from enrollment to graduation and beyond. Colorado Heights University recognizes that in many instances individuals and their families are unable to meet the entire cost of education. CHU is eligible to participate in the Federal Department of Education Title IV Programs and offers a limited amount of institutional scholarships and grants.
