International Students



Colorado College welcomes international students to join our vibrant community and experience life at an accredited liberal arts college. Summer courses at Colorado College will help you expand your range of educational experiences, improve your English skills, and meet your educational goals. Applications close on March 1st, 2024.

In order to meet F1 visa requirements, Colorado College requires all summer international students to be enrolled in a minimum of 1.00 CC credits. Therefore, in addition to their regular .75 credit pre-college summer course, all international students will be required to take GS103: Communication for Collegiate Success, a .25 credit (4 credit hours) course that will complement students’ main coursework in that it will give students additional practice in writing, speaking, engaging in discourse in an American college-level classroom. The college credit is transferable to other higher education institutions in the U.S.
