CC Bound

CC Bound is our online orientation site for newly-admitted students. It contains all the background information and forms that students need in order to prepare for their arrival on campus. Please prompt your student to review these materials carefully, since the deadlines for submission of forms begin in June. A schedule of deadlines is included on the forms section of the site for your convenience.

Winter Start Orientation

January 10-11, 2015

Each year, as many as 40 students begin their Colorado College studies as Winter Start students. There is typically no particular reason why a student is offered winter rather than fall admission; however, we believe these students are uniquely prepared to use their semesters off productively. Winter start students begin their studies in January at the beginning of Block 5 with move-in and orientation occurring the week prior. Winter start students can expect to receive information about pre-registration and orientation in July. Please see the complete orientation schedule for more information about both student and parent events.
