NOTE: Colorado College is responding to Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments. Summer Block A & B classes are being delivered via distance learning. On-campus admission visits are canceled until further notice. See Coronavirus Updates & Resources here.
The Block Plan allows you to focus your energies solely on what you want to do. By taking one class at a time, typically meeting each morning from 9 a.m. until noon, your time is spent learning deeply. One block at CC is equivalent to one semester’s worth of material at another school.
A block lasts for three and a half weeks, beginning on a Monday and ending on the following fourth Wednesday.
One block is equal to one class on the semester plan.
Four blocks per semester; eight blocks per year, plus optional Half Block in the winter and Summer Session during the summer.
Class typically meets 9 a.m. - 12 p.m., Monday through Friday, with applicable labs in the afternoon, but professors are free to schedule classes in the format they feel is most suited to the subject matter.
