    IMPORTANT: For Students Arriving on Campus

    All students will be tested upon arrival to campus and will be required to adhere to enhanced social distancing protocols until they receive their test result. Once a student receives a negative test result, they may shift to our regular virus risk mitigation protocols.

    Emergency Response Fund

    Because many in the Colorado College community asked how they can help, we have established the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Emergency Response Fund to meet needs during these uncertain times. Many of our alumni, parents, and friends, as well as members of our Board of Trustees and the president’s cabinet, have contributed. The fund also provides the college with resources to respond to unexpected expenses developing during this crisis and for lost revenue.
