What is Colorado ASSET?

Colorado ASSET will allow undocumented students to pay in-state tuition provided they can meet the following criteria:

  • The student must attend a Colorado public or private high school for a minimum of 3 years.
  • The student must graduate from a public or private high school in Colorado or obtain a general equivalency diploma (GED) in Colorado.
  • The student must apply and be admitted to a Colorado institution of higher education.
  • Many students are already working their way through the immigration system and are able to be employed, and the remaining students will be required to seek lawful presence as soon as possible.

Colorado ASSET will allow all qualified high school graduates to attend a Colorado college or university at the in-state tuition rate.
