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.

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.

If you have any questions about the information presented below, please email precollege@coloradocollege.edu for assistance.

The deadline for international applicants to apply for the Pre-College Block is May 1, 2022.
