Colorado College is a nationally prominent, four-year liberal arts college located in the Rocky Mountains. This private institution operates on a unique “Block Plan” academic structure. Through the Block Plan, students take one class at a time, covering a semester's worth of material in three and a half weeks. With this system, students can spend time learning off campus, investigating bird habitats in Arizona or studying Roman architecture in France. Colorado College meets 100% of a student’s demonstrated need-based financial aid and awards scholarships to U.S. and international students.
