Do I have to pre-register for Homecoming and Family Weekend?
You will save time and money if you register in advance of your arrival on campus. An early-bird registration fee of $10 per household will be available until Oct. 1.

Back to top

Will onsite registration be available?
After Oct. 1, a registration fee of $25 per household will apply and there will be a $10 additional fee per person, per event. We do our best to accommodate on-site registrations but cannot guarantee a seat or a meal unless you have registered by Oct. 1. Due to COVID regulations, walk-ins for specific events cannot be accommodated.

Why is there a registration fee?
The registration fee covers the hidden costs of the weekend, including tents, tables, chairs, and staffing. More than 100 Colorado College staff make every effort for all events to be as well planned as possible. To that end, it helps us immensely when you register and pay the requested fees.
