Staying on top of deadlines is the key to a successful block ahead. Hope you had a wonderful Sprig Break and have travelled safely back to campus. The end of the acadmic year will be here before we know it!




The Graduation Applications for Spring 2024 is Open


Apply to Graduate is the graduation application available from the Student Banner menu. Students who have reached a *23 unit threshold are eligible to open the application. 

  • Graduation Curriculum |Level, Major, Minor (proceed to apply even if this info is in flux) 
  • Graduation Date | Spring  
  • Graduation Ceremony Attendance |Y/N and height for gown 
  • Graduation Program and Diploma |Diploma Name and Hometown 
  • Diploma Mailing Address |Edit and Review 
  • Graduation Application Summary |Review and Submit 

*once submitted, students must contact the Registrar’s office to cancel or make a correction* 


By completing a graduation application, students are confirming their intentions to graduate; opting in/out of ceremony participation and announcements; and initiating a review with the registrar to be certified for a degree. Responses to applications are shared with the following stakeholders: registrar, advisors, department chairs, college events.  


Spring Graduates | Apply by Apr 19  (4/19) 
  • A finalized applicant list will be shared with college events for eligibility to Spring Commencement on deadline close. 
  • All degree requirements must be completed by the end of Block 8 (including any I or IP pending grades) 
  • The official conferment process begins in Block 8. 


Apply Now! Even if you aren't sure you'll make it due to transitory situations (i.e. unsure of graduation progress, deciding between majors, double majoring, attempting to squeeze in a minor or an abroad program, etc.) These should NOT prevent a student from applying! In fact, applications are especially necessary for plans in flux (an application can always be removed or bumped out if intent should change). 

Understand how your plans and degree progress align by taking these next steps towards graduation: 

  • Apply to Graduate 
  • Make sure you are declared in your major(s) and/or minor(s) 
  • Schedule a graduation review appointment with your advisor(s).  
  • Proof your Stellic record in your advising appointment as this is your first step in verifying requirements have been met. Do not ignore (red) marks as they indicate something is missing. Work with your advisor(s) and department chair to understand why. If a course should be counting in your progress on Stellic, an exception must be made. All requirements should reflect either completed (green) or registered to be completed (yellow) in order to remain eligible for graduation. 
  • Finish your remaining requirements. 
  • Send official transcripts for any pending/missing transfer work to the Registrar’s Office 
  • Stay informed with graduation events from the College Events office  
Marching Only Eligibility Conditions (an option for Commencement participation for those who fall short in the Spring) 

Students must meet all degree requirements by end of Block 8 to graduate and receive a diploma. Degree requirements include: major, general education, and 32-unit. For students who are within their final two degree requirements by end of Block 8 will continue to remain eligible to participate at Commencement but will not graduate and receive a diploma until remaining requirements are finished. If you think you’ll fall in this category, please apply and reach out to our office so that we can discuss a marching only option that keeps you on the list for the Commencement ceremony.

Preregistration | Upcoming Open Period

The course schedule for the academic year 2024-25 is underway and is expected to wrap up over spring break in March. Using Stellic, students can plan seamlessly through schedule development periods! Its intuitive algorithms utilize the past 5 year's data to predict future offerings. Once the new schedule is posted, students can fine-tune their plans and be ready to meet with their advisors ahead of preregistration!

Fall 2024 Preregistration opens in week 3 of Block 7 

You can learn about the Preregistration process here on our About Preregistration page ahead of scheduled digests and emails in Block 7. 

Transferring Credit Into CC?

Colorado College accepts transfer credit from previous college work completed by a student. The College can apply a maximum of 8.00 CC units (sophomore standing) in total transfer credit to students admitted as a first-year student and 16.00 CC units (junior standing) in total transfer credit to students admitted as a transfer student.

When Is Add/Drop Disabled?

Course adds are temporarily disabled over the weekend prior to the start of a new block. Adding a course using Add/Drop is prevented between the time when final rosters are sent to professors on Friday until the start of the new block on Monday. This is to allow all students and faculty time to plan for the upcoming block. Once a new block begins, "Adds" require the COI PIN (consent of instructor pin) to be used in the Add/Drop registration application, on Days 1 and 2 of block.

What qualifies as an "Add"?

  • getting in off of a waitlist
  • correcting a Preregistration placeholder
  • swapping classes
  • adding new classes

Students are required to use the online registration application to update their registration. Add/Drop is linked to Canvas and will update access to a Canvas page based on the registered course. Drop notifications are sent automatically from Add/Drop during the block's registration periods.

What Is A "Temporary" Registration?

Temporary registrations are not official and bear 0.00 credit. Waitlists and Preregistration placeholder courses, GS391 and GS392 are considered temporary registrations. Because these are not official registrations, when final class rosters are distributed to faculty before the new block begins, temporary registrations are dropped. Students who had a temporary registration for the new block are no longer considered enrolled and must update their registration on Days 1 and 2 of the new block by using Add/Drop and an instructor's COI PIN (or through one of the applications linked below). Learn more about registration deadlines.

If you are on a waitlist and no longer want to be, please use Add/Drop to remove yourself. A waitlisted course is considered your preferred course choice. You will be moved into the vacated seat and automatically dropped from your current course registration should a seat open to you ahead of the block.

If you are registered in a GS391, this Preregistration placeholder MUST be replaced with an approved independent study or thesis course. Please make sure to replace any “GS391, PLACEHOLDER ONLY (Senior Thesis/Ind. Study)” on your schedule by completing one of the following:

Some departments handle the creation/assignment of independent blocks for their majors directly (i.e. Economics, Sociology, etc.) If you are a declared student in such a department, please make sure to follow the department's instructions on how to correctly register for your thesis and/or independent research block.
