The Application Process

At Colorado College, we seek students who will discover intellectual passions, speak up, imagine, and challenge the status quo. Further, we seek students who will build community inside and outside of the classroom, whether onstage, on the field, volunteering downtown, or on the trails.

Our selection process reflects those priorities, examining academic engagement and performance, writing, extracurricular participation, and accomplishment as well as test scores. Our review is holistic, meaning that we do not concentrate solely upon numbers but rather seek out depth, perspective, and passion wherever it may be.
