Are You Ready?
When you are ready to apply for admission, follow the steps outlined below.
Visit your Base Education Center and talk to an Education Service Officer (ESO) about why you want to attend college and which school you would like to attend. Your ESO can give you the essential paperwork regarding your tuition assistance (TA) and advise you on your eligibility for any military education benefits.
Apply online by clicking below. Follow the prompts and fill in the requested information.
Once we’ve received all required information and documents, we will review your application.
After your application for admission is complete, fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine your eligibility for other federal aid resources.
- Apply here to create a FSA ID, which allows you to sign and submit your FAFSA online.
- When filling out the FAFSA, you will need to input the Colorado Technical University School Code: 010148. This code will route the completed information to CTU.
- Log on to the FAFSA website and complete the application.
Contact a CTU Military Education Benefits Specialist (MEBS) after you've completed your FAFSA. Your Military Education Benefits Specialist, in conjunction with your ESO, will work with you to determine all military benefits for which you may be eligible.
CTU’s Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) Department will review and evaluate your military training — courses, MOS and traditional education for potential credit.*
The steps outlined above are general guidelines. Requirements may vary for specific student applications.
