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.

If you have additional concerns about COVID-19 or our campus response, please contact us at or refer to for the most up-to-date information


Located within the unceded territory of the Ute Peoples, Colorado College is unique among liberal arts colleges because of its longstanding Summer Session that creates a vibrant academic community year-round. The Pre-College Program provides students with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture of the college, with a combination of academic and social programming planned by our program assistants.

Pre-College students will be in class from 9:00am-12:00pm. In the afternoons, students will have time for science course labs, homework, class field trips, and general free time. Supplemental academic programming is provided 2-3 times each week from 4:00-5:00pm, and the evenings are open for the students to socialize, work on projects, and enjoy the community atmosphere at Colorado College.
