Application Process

Blocks Off-Campus (during the year)

Each block may be handled differently, so interested students should contact the professor or department who is offering the course for any application/interview requirements. Following your acceptance into the block through the professor's procedures, you will complete basic forms on the Summit website for CC International Programs.

Semester and Year-Long Off-Campus Study

Semester and year-long off-campus study is generally open to sophomores and juniors. Seniors wishing to study off-campus for a semester may need to obtain additional approval but this is also a possibility.  In addition to meeting the application requirements of the program you are applying to, you must also be in good academic and disciplinary standing at CC, and obtain your academic advisor’s approval to study off-campus. Students who are currently on academic or judicial probation may not be eligible to study off-campus.

Students applying for an Approved or ACM program will need to complete the CC Internal Application below , in addition to the application for the program itself, which can be obtained on the program’s website.

ONLINE CC Internal Application (for Approved and ACM Programs) 

-For the Spring Semester off-campus: Opens on August 1, closes October 1 (or when full)

-For the Fall Semester off-campus: Opens on January 1, closes March 1(or when full)

You should start working on the actual program application as soon as possible, regardless of when the program lists their application deadlines. You must submit final confirmation to CC of your plans for the next semester by November 1 for Spring semester off-campus, or by May 1 for Fall semester off-campus. That means you need to be accepted by your program by that point and have submitted your deposit. Do not wait to apply for your program!

A note about petitioning for non-approved semester programs:

When choosing on off-campus semester program, students are strongly encouraged to select from this list of options that have been reviewed and approved by the CC International Studies Committee. These programs support the Colorado College curriculum and meet the standards of a high-quality liberal arts education. If, for valid academic reasons, you are considering a program that is not currently on our CC list, you must petition in advance for approval through the International Studies Committee. Please meet with Heather Browne, our Assistant Director of Off-Campus Study, to learn more about this process and the criteria for approval. Students who do not petition in advance for non-approved off-campus study programs will not be able to transfer credit into the college.
