I was wondering the same thing.. It seems as if the 2 links are to different options... Odd?

On the AADSAS page for Colorado, it states the fee is $85, but the link it takes us to says its $80. And on their website is says its $80. I don't want to pay the wrong fee but I want to be early, should I go ahead and pay the $80?

Hey so I just heard you won't get penalized if you pay the $80. But in the next 24-48 hours it will be updated to $85

Hello Everyone,
Ok so probably a stupid question but is there more than one fee we need to pay? I paid a fee when I submitted the application through AADSAS, but is there also a separate one that CU (or any other school for that matter) requires?

My application status right now is "complete".

Hey so for each program you should browse through their website AND read the program description on your AADSAS application. If you read the Colorado description in full you will find a link to pay a supplemental fee. Do this for every program so you don't miss any information.

AADSAS charges a fee for each application but most schools also have their own fee.

Ah OK. I shall go forth and do so!
Many thanks for the clarification!

This whole application process can get confusing at times :dead:

You can wait if you want. But they have made the supplemental fee page accessible as stated on Colorado AADSAS page on your application.
Where is the link? I've looked a couple of times but don't actually see that. Just the bolded statement that the email will be sent after receiving the application. Still waiting for aadsas to receive one of my transcripts... sent it 6/11/20 and still waiting which is frustrating

Does anyone know what the grading system is like? Is attendance at lectures mandatory and are lectures available online/recorded?

Attendance is mandatory per school policy like most schools. But it is the professor responsibility to take attendance or not.
Lectures are recorded and available online.

There is no portal. I think he/she/they may have been referring to your AADSAS portal as some schools also update those to show if you received an interview

Last year supplementals were given to people that got interviews to submit just before their interview. May or may not be the same this year but if there is a supplemental you will get an email.

Don't give up hope yet! It is still very early in the cycle!
I know a lot of people say that but its true! I've seen many people posting with their 3rd and 4th invites and this is my first. Its never too late :)

Thank you for the encouragement! This is one of my top choices so keep your fingers crossed for me :)

Hey did you or anyone else who reads this receive a supplemental app from them prior to your interview invite? I only paid the fee.
