SCHOOL CLOSINGS: Snowstorm is delaying and closing schools and offices in parts of Colorado (See The Full List)

DENVER (CBS4)– College students in Colorado just got a break. Gov. John Hickenlooper signed the College Affordability Act into law.

The new law is designed to lower the cost of higher education by setting aside an extra $100 million to be used for financial aid, the College Opportunity Fund program and the state institutions.

The new law also sets a limit on tuition increases. Tuition for resident undergraduate students can not increase by more than six percent during this or next school year.
