Experience Colorado College: Fall Visit Scholarship Program

Our next fly-in program is scheduled for October 26 - 28, 2019.

ECC is a visit program unlike any other. We know your college decision doesn’t just include you, which is why we fly you and a guest out to campus. Why be ordinary? Learn differently, one block at a time, and get ready to experience the gateway to the southwest. #americathebeautiful #pikespeak #gardenofthegods

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.
