Colorado College Alumni Student Endorsement Program
Welcome Colorado College alumni educators!
Through the CCASE (Colorado College Alumni Student Endorsement) program, alumni in education can identify and recommend students they feel would be a good fit for CC by submitting a recommendation letter on the student’s behalf. We encourage educators of all kinds to participate, whether you’re a teacher, mentor, coach, or outdoor instructor. When you endorse a student's application, we will waive their $60 application fee as an incentive for them to move forward through the CC application process.
An important feature of the CCASE recommendation will include your narrative and insight into the student's personal and academic accomplishments, community engagement, and character, all of which will help us assess the student's candidacy for CC. Please see tips for writing an endorsement for more information. Note that you cannot endorse a student you are related to.
Although writing an endorsement does not guarantee the student’s admission to CC, it adds another dimension to the student’s application in our highly selective, holistic review process. For the 2014-2015 admission cycle, we received 8,064 applications and had an overall admission rate of 17%. The acceptance rates by decision plan are as follows: 29% Early Decision, 20% Early Action, 9% Regular Action. Please be aware of admission deadlines so you can submit your endorsement on time – November 10 for Early Action and Early Decision 1, January 1 for Early Decision 2, and January 15 for Regular Action. We are now only accepting endorsements for applicants who plan to start college in Fall 2016.
If you have any questions about the program or your endorsement, please feel free to contact Roz Brokaw at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re interested in participating in the CCASE program, please take a moment to complete this quick interest form.
Thank you for your participation in building a strong CC student body!
