Winter Start Calendar

A Winter Start student’s first block will be Block 5, the beginning of Spring Semester, on January 19, 2014. Orientation will begin on January 10, 2014.


As is true in the fall, Colorado College offers a variety of First-Year Experience courses from which you will choose your first two blocks. These courses introduce you to the college’s library, Writing Center, and other academic support systems specific to Colorado College. You will also be provided with a student mentor, and get a chance to meet other first-year students, as well as the larger college community. You will find descriptions of these courses on the FYE website. You may choose among any of the college’s courses offered in Blocks 7 and 8 (the remaining blocks of your first semester). Please note prerequisites and course numbers.

Colorado College also has an impressive Summer Session, which runs from early in June through the end of July. Many Winter Start students choose to participate in the Summer Session following their first year. After the first year, Winter Starts can - and generally do - enroll in courses for the typical fall-spring calendar.
