Each year Colorado College awards scholarships to foreign students (non-U.S. citizens and non-U.S. permanent residents) enrolling as degree-seeking students. We evaluate the amount each family can contribute toward the total cost of attendance, including tuition, housing, meals, health insurance, books*, personal expenses, and transportation to and from a student’s home country.

Typical awards include up to $2,000 in institutional work study (campus job). The scholarship is renewed every year, up to four consecutive years, until graduation. Thirty-six percent of admitted international students were offered need-based financial assistance, ranging from $10,133 to $54,832. The average need-based international student grant was $45,293. More than $1.75 million was offered to international students in need-based or merit-based assistance.


International Prospective Students: If you wish to apply for need-based financial aid, indicate that on their Common Application (the application specifically asks if you will be applying for financial aid).

International Prospective & Current Students: If you wish to apply for need-based financial aid, you must complete and submit the following: 

  •  CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE (complete online)
  •  Certification of Income from Employer (submit directly to our office via mail, email, or fax)
    • The purpose of the Certification of Income from Employer is to help Colorado College obtain complete and accurate information about the parents’ income for international applicants who want to study in the United States and to apply for financial assistance. Strict government regulations, rising education costs and economic conditions have made verifying the financial resources of international applicants essential. The Certification of Income from Employer must be written in English, signed by parent's employer, and provide the amount of earnings the parent received during the last complete calendar year.  A separate Certification must be obtain for both parents living together  in the same household. A separate Certification must be included from each employer if the parent has worked for more than one employer during the last complete calendar year.


Students who have earned an undergraduate degree from another college or university are not be eligible for financial aid from Colorado College.
