About CC

If you’re taking four, five or even six classes in a semester, it’s hard to find time for all the papers, projects, exams and reading. With its unique “Block Plan,” Colorado College offers a solution to over-scheduling. Each semester at CC consists of four blocks, and each block consists of a single course.

The Block Plan allows you to focus on one subject at a time, making it easier to complete one of Colorado College’s 40 majors. Academics at CC include some unique programs, such as Southwest Studies, as well as pre-professional programs in Business, Law and Allied Health.

Colorado College students are heavily involved on-campus, maintaining about 100 clubs and organizations. Community service is an important part of college life at CC, with 80% of students participating in various service programs.

To apply to Colorado College, submit the Common Application by January 15. The college sends out decisions by March 20 (earlier if you apply as Early Decision or Early Action). An admissions interview, while not required, is recommended to help the admissions committee get to know you personally.

For priority consideration for need-based financial aid, complete the FAFSA and CSS Profile by February 15.
