 Policy on Outside Funding

Outside funding will replace any federal funds awarded, with the exception of the Pell Grant. Outside funding will then be added up to the Cost of Attendance.

Policy on Health Insurance

Students must submit their insurance information during the summer through the Wellness Resource Center to see if their existing coverage applies while at CC. If not, students can notify the Financial Aid Office their coverage wasn't accepted and the grant for insurance will be added.

Policy on Student Contribution

Students are expected to arrive on campus with savings from summer earnings to fund book expenses associated with courses. After arriving at Colorado College students are expected to utilize work opportunities on campus to fund limited personal expenses and return-home expenses during academic recess. A full handbook on campus funding opportunities to assist students in planning for their time at CC can be found here.

Requirements Associated with Maintaining this Award

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.
