For Counselors

Spring 2020 Regular Action and Deferral Counselor Memo:

  • For greater detail about our timeline and process, click here to view the counselor memo. Please note, the document is password protected. 

New Test-Optional Policy:

  • At Colorado College, students have never been treated as numbers — in either the admission process or the classroom — and this policy change strengthens that commitment. This move will allow our team to identify the most qualified candidates for admission while also increasing access for first-generation, low-income, and traditionally underserved students. To find out more, please see our website.

Colorado Pledge:

  • Beginning with the 2020 entering class, Colorado College is making a historic pledge to address affordability concerns in higher education. This new program is a pilot aimed at supporting Colorado families. Made possible by the generous contributions of a handful of donors, our strategic plan calls for additional fundraising to endow this program for future classes.
