Experience Colorado College: Fall Visit Scholarship Program

Our next fly-in program is scheduled for October 24 - 26, 2020 (our application will be live late April, 2020).

ECC is a visit program unlike any other. We know your college decision doesn’t just include you, which is why we are providing funding for you and a guest to visit campus (could be a parent, grandparent, older sibling, counselor, or teacher). Why be ordinary? Learn differently, one block at a time, and get ready to experience the gateway to the southwest. #americathebeautiful #pikespeak #gardenofthegods

What does ECC offer to prospective students?

During Experience Colorado College (ECC) fly-in program, prospective students will have the opportunity to

  •         Observe the Block Plan in action
  •         Tour campus
  •         Explore Colorado’s beauty
  •         Stay on campus overnight with a student host
  •         Interview with an Admission Fellow
  •         Connect with faculty and staff
  •         Complete the CSS Profile
  •         Participate in essay writing workshops

Wondering what your days will look like? View samples of the student version or guest version of this year's schedule.

Why apply?

We know you have options. At CC, you’ll author your own story. You’ll discover your community. You’ll find your home. Over the weekend, you will see campus through the eyes of a student — living the Block Plan, sampling the best that Rastall has to offer, crashing at the residence halls, and engaging in a #RealTalk. And yeah, a ton more.
