has launched a new program meant to help middle- and low-income families pay college tuition.
The program, called Colorado Pledge, provides assistance for Colorado households making less than $200,000 a year, starting with the class of new students arriving in 2020.
For most students from families with an adjusted gross income of less than $60,000 annually, tuition, room and board at Colorado College will be free.
For students whose parents make between $60,000 and $125,000, parents are expected to pay for room and board only.
Finally, households making between $125,000 and $200,000 will be expected to pay “the same or less than the cost of attendance at the flagship state university in Colorado.”
For reference, tuition at Colorado College for the 2019-20 school year amounted to nearly $58,000. At the University of Colorado Boulder, in-state tuition was close to $29,000.
