International Student Services

Office of International Programs

International student arrival is on Aug 16, 2016. International Student Orientation will begin on Aug 17, 2016.

We provide a wide range of support services to ensure the success and well being of all our students, both in and out of the classroom. The office advises international students on immigration matters, provides guidance on issues of cultural adjustment, and organizes programs on different aspects of U.S. and other cultures.

Here are a few of the services the Office of International Programs provides during the year:

International Student Orientation

CC hosts a special orientation for international students prior to the start of the school year. The International Student Orientation gives students the information they need to make a successful transition to academic life and campus culture. The four-day orientation covers everything from academics and campus policies to making friends and finding a social life. 

Airport Pick-Up

In an effort to relieve some of the stress of international travel, the office offers an airport pick-up service for students attending the International Student Orientation. A college representative will meet you at the Colorado Springs airport when you first arrive in the United States and bring you to campus.

English Language Learner Resources

Students applying to CC should have a solid mastery of the English language, but CC does provide some English as a foreign language assistance through tutoring and faculty advising.

Global Scholars Program

Colorado College offers a Global Scholars Program immediately prior to International Student Orientation. This is a new initiative designed to provide students the opportunity to strengthen fluency with academic English prior to the beginning of the official school year.
