    CC Financial Aid & You: Partnership for Success

    Many families are able to afford Colorado College by utilizing a combination of grants, modest loans, student work opportunities, and family resources. We offer advice on budgeting, parent loans, and other financial options for all families.

    CC meets 100% of demonstrated financial need based on FAFSA and CSS Profile. The Net Price Calculator below gives an estimate based on information you provide. We welcome students and parents to call and schedule a time to talk through their net price calculator results or any other financial aid concerns you may have.

    Health Insurance


    Additionally, all students are required to have health insurance while attending Colorado College and to provide annual proof of coverage. The college offers a comprehensive Student Health Insurance Plan. If a student elects coverage under a different plan, their health insurance must meet minimum criteria, which are available on the Student Health Insurance Plan website. More information is available with our Student Health Center.

    Estimated cost if you are required to sign up for the Student Health Insurance Plan due to inadequate coverage


    *The college’s actual annual cost of educating a student at Colorado College is higher than our tuition. However, income from our endowment and from gifts and grants subsidizes that amount, even for students who do not receive financial aid. For students eligible for financial aid, scholarship and grants further reduce the costs to students and their families.
