Financial Aid Overview

Financial Aid Overview

The Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine works hard to offer a supportive educational atmosphere. CSTCM makes every effort to assist students in obtaining educational funding.

CSTCM is certified by the U.S. Department of Education to participate in the Title IV Student Aid Programs including Direct Loans, Grad PLUS, and alternative student loans. To be eligible for federal student aid at CSTCM, students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), be enrolled at least half-time and comply with all CSTCM academic procedures and guidelines.

Private corporations and foundations which offer scholarships and grants can be found in most public and university libraries. Places to research grants / scholarships include the public library in the Sociology Section non-profit bookshelf. Please contact the Financial Aid Administrator for information regarding scholarship opportunities.

Veterans Benefit Programs

CSTCM is approved by the Colorado State Approving Agency to accept Veterans Administration educational benefits for those who are eligible to participate, including the GI Bill®. GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government website at

For students using Chapter 31 or 33 VA benefits, CSTCM adheres to Section 103 of the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2017.  Any covered individual is permitted to attend or participate in classes during the period beginning on the date on which the individual provides to the educational institution a certificate of eligibility for entitlement to educational assistance under chapter 31 or 33 (a certificate of eligibility can also include a “Statement of Benefits” obtained from the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) website – eBenefits, or VA 28-1905 form for chapter 31 authorization purposes) and ending on the earlier of the following dates:

    • The date on which payment from V A is made to the institution,
    • 90 days after the date the institution certified tuition and fees following the receipt of the certificate of eligibility.

CSTCM will not impose any penalty, including the assessment of late fees, the denial of access to classes, libraries, or other institutional facilities, or the requirement that a covered individual borrow additional funds, on any covered individual because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement funding from VA under chapter 31 or 33.
