Application Process

Colorado College will require all students, faculty, and staff who are living, learning, working on and accessing campus be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. All Pre-College students will be required to provide proof of vaccination or exemption by June 1, 2022. 

Making this decision allows us to plan for and look forward to our in-person summer program. Full vaccination as a community will allow us to move past the great challenges of the pandemic and provide the personal attention, unequaled academic experience, and supportive, enriching learning environment you expect from Colorado College. Thank you for helping us make this a reality.
