We encourage you to visit your applicant portal and start a preliminary application file. It’ll take you a few minutes to complete and starts your application to Colorado College.
  • Transfer Common Application
  • Personal Statement
    • Attached to the Common Application, your personal statement should briefly tell us about you and your story. You may want to include why you are transferring, a little bit about your academic goals, and your personal aspirations. We recommend limiting your personal statement to one page.
  • Transfer College Report (from College Registrar)
    • Document typically filled out by your current institution's registrar or Dean's office. You can find a blank copy here.
  • Final high school transcript
    • While the Transfer Common Application allows students to upload a copy, we do need an official copy sent from a school official at your high school.
    • Including a copy of your high school transcript will allow us to read your application, but an official copy must be submitted for a final admission decision to be released.
  • Official transcript(s) for all colleges/universities attended
  • Standardized test scores
    • Colorado College moved to a Test-Optional policy in August 2019. Transfer Applicants for Fall 2020 and beyond may choose to include their standardized test scores or not.
    • Transfer applicants who applied previously as first-year students may email to request their previously submitted scores be included with their transfer application.
  • Two Recommendations (Called Academic Evaluations)
    • We suggest at least one of these be from a college instructor
    • The other recommendation can be from a coach, boss, or high school teacher if necessary
