    Guidelines for Returning Off-Campus Students

    CC has developed a process to make facilities accessible to any CC student on campus or living locally. These resources include: Tutt Library, Worner Campus Center, Adam F. Press Fitness Center, varsity athletics practice facilities, (for varsity student-athletes) and the Student Health Center.

    Getting Gold Card Access:

    There are several steps that you need to take in order to be given Gold Card access.

    Fall Living Survey: Complete the fall living survey as soon as possible. This data will be helpful for our safety, contact tracing, and the testing protocols we will put into place for off-campus students using campus buildings. 

    Canvas Course: Complete the Safe Return to Campus Student Expectations Canvas course.  Use this link to self-enroll: 

    COVID-19 Testing: Complete COVID-19 testing. Our UCHealth partner will be on campus Saturday and Sunday, September 19 and 20 in the Hybl Community Center to test off-campus students (1107 N. Nevada Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80903).

    Step-by-Step Test Scheduling Instructions: 

    Please follow the directions below as well as included in these guides:

    • Self-Service Tip Sheet 
    • Authorization to Disclose Testing Results
    • If you are below the age of 18,please have your parent/guardian complete the above Authorization to Disclose PHI and email the signed form back to
    • Start setting up your MyHealthConnection Account (preferably from a computer); on the account set-up page, you’ll be asked to confirm/submit that Colorado College is your “employer.” Say yes/submit to that question, then proceed with registering your account. Once you’ve registered your account, you can download the UCH app. View app instructions.
    • When selecting a testing location, please only select “Employer On-site” locations. If you do not see that option, please call the UCH technical support at 855-395-9031.
    • Next, you’ll be able to schedule a time during the testing day, enter your insurance information, sign forms (including the release that will allow UCHealth to share your test results with the college for contact tracing purposes), and see your test results when they are available.
    • Please also complete the eCheck-In on the day of, but prior to your appointment, as that will help move the process along more quickly. 

    Until you receive your test results, you will be required to follow enhanced social distancing protocols, which means that in addition to regular risk mitigation protocols, you should only interact with your roommate and will not have access to buildings on campus other than your assigned residence hall. 

    Remember that a COVID test result is simply a snapshot in time; because it is possible to get a negative result even when you have Coronavirus, it is important to be careful even when you receive a negative result. You must follow social distancing guidelines and other risk mitigation protocols at all times while on campus. This includes completing the daily COVID self-check through the CC app every day you come to campus. Whether living on or off campus, students are expected to follow the campus Honor and Community Standards

    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.
