Next steps to keep in mind

As you make plans for winter break and your January arrival to campus, here are some things to keep in mind!

  • Make sure you send your final transcript asap. Email the Office of Admission at if that will be a problem.

  • First-years, the College mailed you a copy of this this year’s common reading, Frankenstein.  You will discuss this book with your FYE class after a capstone talk during orientation.

If you have any questions about your enrollment at Colorado College or Winter Start Orientation, most college offices are open Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. MDT; you can find a list of important offices & phone numbers here.

Please note, the College will be closed for Winter Break from Friday, Dec. 21 - Sunday, Jan. 6, with offices reopening on Monday, Jan. 7; therefore, it is important that you complete all of the items on the New Student To-Do list prior to Dec. 16 if at all possible so we have the most time to prepare for your arrival.
