Usually, the rankings by Forbes and US News are considered noteworthy by applicants and experts. Colorado College doesn't feature in the list of top colleges, according to the latest rankings of these two publications.

Admission to CC is difficult. However, the university is selective in taking in students. Along with the admission form, the students have to deposit a non-refundable fee to complete the application process. Securing a good score in a standardised test like SAT or ACT improves an applicant’s chances of securing admission. However, Colorado College doesn’t focus much on standardised tests. Interestingly, the average SAT or ACT scores of students securing admission is not available. The application process can be completed online. However, if needed, one can also visit the office at 14. E Cache La Poudre St., Colorado Springs, Colorado 80903, or call (719) 389-6000.
