Next steps to keep in mind
As you make plans for your summer, here are some next steps to keep in mind!
- Make sure you send your final transcript by June 30. If you won’t have it in time, email the Office of Admission to let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org
- In early June, the college will send you a book and a letter. The letter will include your Colorado College email address, username, password, and student ID number. You will need this information to submit forms throughout the summer. The book, “Whistling Vivaldi: How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do,” by Claude M. Steele, is this year’s NSO common reading. You will discuss this book with your FYE class after a capstone talk at New Student Orientation.
- Once you receive the above information, you will be able to fill out the required forms, including signing up for housing, registering for your First Year Experience and your Priddy Experience, and completing an interest form that will help us better pair you with student mentors and an advisor. Many of these forms are due in late June.
- In July, Student Accounts will send you a billing timeline for the fall semester (this will come in December for the spring semester). To sign up for online billing, you will need your student ID. You must sign up as a new user to access online billing account information and billing statements. For more information, visit: www.coloradocollege.edu/studentaccounts
- If you have any questions about your enrollment at Colorado College, please see this phone list. Most college offices are open throughout the summer from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. MDT.
