Tuition and Fees

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 July 1, 2021. More information on the process will be provided soon, and we will work with students who may have limitations on accessing vaccinations. If you have questions or concerns about vaccines or the vaccination process, please speak to your healthcare provider.

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.

Tuition and fees for the Pre-College program are billed by the Student Account's Office the first week of the month. Participants in the Pre-College program will receive an invoice to the address of their financially responsible party, with instructions on how to pay. If you are an international student, please pay through Flywire. Pre-College financial aid and scholarships are not available for international high school students.

Auditing Summer Courses

The designation of "Audit" is a registration status used when students officially register for a class without earning a letter grade or credit. Audit courses are subject to full tuition and fees.

Students may register for a summer class on an audit basis only when space is available and only with the permission of the instructor and Director of Summer Session. Students who receive permission to audit a course are expected to attend classes regularly and complete assigned readings. Other requirements regarding participation are to be agreed upon by the instructor and Director of Summer Session.

Audited courses cannot be paid for with financial aid.

All students attending and participating in a course must be officially registered. No provisions for students to merely sit-in on summer courses are made and attendance without payment of fees is prohibited.
