Colorado College’s Financial Aid Overview 

Colorado College believes that one of the best investments is a good education, and its pursuit should not be compromised by financial concerns.  Many families mistakenly assume they cannot afford a private liberal arts education.  However, Colorado College seeks a highly qualified and diverse student body.  For this reason, Colorado College offers a strong financial aid program that enables students form all economic backgrounds to enroll.  Colorado College strongly urges students to explore the possibility of financial aid as they plan their college education.

It is Colorado College's goal to make CC affordable to all admitted students who apply for assistance on time.  Colorado College grant assistance is based on students' financial eligibility and admission credentials. Student awards are renewed each year at the agreement level above (work study and work contribution covering books, travel, and personal while grants will cover the rest of the expenses).
