Academic Year 2021-2022 Blocks Away

COVID-19 & CC Blocks Away

At present Colorado College is planning a full slate of Block Away courses for the 2021-2022 academic year.  We continue to regularly monitor and communicate with each of our partners and CC faculty on the plans to offer and support 2021 study abroad program options, in conjunction with U.S. State Department and CDC travel restrictions and guidance.  Each program in Fall 2021 will undergo a thorough Safety & Travel Viability Review approximately 90-70 days prior to the scheduled departure date. 

Due to the possibility of program cancellation following our review, we strongly recommend that students not purchase airfare until their program has completed its Safety & Travel Viability Review and the program is confirmed to travel as scheduled.  Colorado College cannot provide aid towards, or reimbursment for, airfare purchased prior to each program's review decision and announcement. 


2021-2022 Academic Year (AY) Blocks Away

PROGRAM FEE: There is no additional tuition charge for blocks during the academic year but there is an additional program fee that varies by class and location. The program fee covers travel costs such as lodging, excursions, entry tickets, etc..  Program fees do not include airfare or other transportation to/from program destination unless indicated.  Some programs include a meal stipend and/or group meals, however this is not universal.  Students with a CC Meal Plan will receive a refund for a portion of their meal plan prior to departure, which can be used to cover any meals not included in the program fee.  It is each student's responsibility to understand exactly what is included in the program fee and what is not - see information below, and check with the faculty leader for the program if you have questions on specific details.

APPLICATION: The primary application window for all 2021-2022 Academic Year Blocks Away is between February 9 and March 12.  All students who apply during this window will be considered for an aid award (See Billing & Finances page for details).  A second application window for Block 7 and Block 8 programs will also be available in the Fall of 2021. Students interested in a block away after the application window has closed should consult with the program's faculty leader to determine if there remain available spaces in the program for a late application.  All Applications must be completed on Summit.  Once accepted into the program, students will receive an email with instructions for forms and waivers to complete. Upon submission of these forms to Summit a second email will provide the Consent of Instructor (COI) Code needed to register for the course on Banner.  

WITHDRAWAL:  All Block Away courses have a designated withdrawal deadline (listed below).  Any student who has been accepted into a Block Away course may withdraw by this date with no financial commitment to the course.  Students who withdraw after the deadline may be billed for any nonrefundable and/or shared expenses the program has absorbed on their behalf.  In cases where a program has an alternates list it is possible for an alternate to replace the withdrawing students, thus absorbing those nonrefundable charges, but as this is not guaranteed, it is important that students recognize the Withdrawal Date as a key deadline.   Students who apply and/or receive acceptance to a Block Away program after the designated withdrawal date are responsible for any nonrefundable and/or shared costs if they withdraw at any point.
