COF stands for the Colorado Opportunity Fund. This is a per credit hour payment for resident of Colorado undergraduate students to help offset the costs for college funded by the state of Colorado. The credit-hour amount will be set annually by the General Assembly.
Eligible students must register from the program one time at https://cof.college-assist.org/COFApp/COFApp/Default.aspx for the program.
After that, students need to authorize the payment each term they desire to use it as they register for classes for the payment to occur for that term.
The majority of UCCS students are employed during their career here at UCCS. Approximately 1300 students are hired each year for on campus jobs at UCCS and in certain off campus work-study placements. We also list jobs for off campus non-work-study positions as well. Research has found that students who work part-time at 20 hours per week or less, tend to do better academically in college than those who don’t work at all and those who work more than 20 hours per week.
We post positions for students to apply for on SEAN’s Place (Student Employment Assistance Network)--which is our computerized job bulletin board.
