Academic Year 2024-2025 Blocks Away

BLOCK AWAY & ABROAD BASICS

APPLICATION WINDOW

The primary application window for all 2024-2025 Academic Year Blocks Away is February 1 through March 16, 2024, following our official launch event at the Study Away Fair on February 1st (12:00 pm to 2:00 pm in the Worner Campus Center).  All students who apply during this window will be considered for an aid award (See Billing & Finances page for details).  All applications during the application window will be reviewed for aid eligibility. Students will be notified of their aid award by March 30, 2024


SECONDARY WINDOW FOR BLOCKS 7 AND 8

While most programs close to new applications following the spring application window, Block 7 and 8 programs do offer a second application period which runs through the end of Block 1 the following Fall.  However, it should be noted that it is possible for even a Block 7 or 8 program to close after the initial spring period, so early application is always recommended.   


LATE APPLICATIONS

Students who wish to apply for a block away after the application window has closed should consult with the program's faculty leader to determine if there remain available spaces in the program for a late application.  Late applicants can be placed on an aid waitlist, but if a student is in need of financial aid it is highly recommended that applications be completed by the deadline.


APPLYING TO MULTIPLE PROGRAMS

Unlike the 1-application policy for Partner-Led Semesters, with Blocks Away it is an option to apply to multiple programs.  Students who do this should notify Global Education of their final decision to accept admission into their preferred program no later than the earliest Withdrawal deadline of the programs they have selected.  Failure to notify Global Education of your desire to decline acceptance into a program by the program's deadline can lead to program fees being billed to the student.  For aid-eligible students who apply to multiple programs, aid will be awarded for the most expensive program to which the student has been accepted. If the student opts to join a different program the aid award can be transferred at the same percentage of cost coverage, not the same dollar amount.  All aid-eligible students may be awarded an aid package only for 1 academic year block in their 4-year CC career (with a second award possible for a summer block but not another academic year block). 


All Applications must be completed on Summit.  Once accepted into the program, students will receive an email with instructions for forms and waivers to complete. Upon completion of these forms and confirmation of acceptance of their seat in the block away course on Summit, the Consent of Instructor (COI) Code needed to register for the course on Banner will be provided.  

PROGRAM FEES

Colorado College Block Away & Abroad programs are funded through a program fee.  This fee typically covers on-site expenses for the students and faculty such as lodging, group meals, transportation, program excursions, guest speakers, group activities, and international health and travel insurance. The program fee may also include additional funds for student meals, however, most meals are funded through a refund of one block of the campus meal plan, provided to students in the weeks before departure.

Program fees do not typically cover airfare to/from the program location. 


FINANCIAL AID

To assist with the costs of a block away/abroad, Colorado College has a pool of aid specifically designed to cover up to 90% of the expense of a block away, including airfare, for students who qualify for need-based aid.  All students who apply to, and are accepted in, a Block Away will automatically be reviewed for aid eligibility.  If eligible, a student can earn an aid award between 20%-90% of the estimated total cost for participation in the program.  The aid pool is limited, so not all students who might qualify are guaranteed aid for any particular program.  It is very important to apply during the primary Application Window for each given program to maximize the potential to obtain an aid award as late applicants are often unable to obtain an award.  Aid-eligible students may receive an award towards one Academic Year Block (Blocks 1-8) during their CC careers as well as one Summer Block (A-B), but not two of the same block type. 

For detailed information about Block Away Program Fees and Aid Awards, please visit our Billing & Finances for AY Blocks Away Page.  

Each Academic Year Off-Campus Block has a set Student Withdrawal Deadline.  Withdrawal charges for Academic Year Blocks are defined by the withdrawal date as it relates to this deadline as well as the program departure date.

  • Withdrawal prior to the published deadline for the program will incur no charges.
  • Post-deadline withdrawal will incur charges ranging from a minimum of $100 to  maximum of 100% of the program fee.  
  • The withdrawal charge increases to a minimum of 25% of the program fee for any withdrawal occurring within the block prior to departure
The total amount of the program charge to be billed will be determined by the course faculty and Global Education and will consider both nonrefundable expenses paid by the college on your behalf and costs shared by all participating students to support the structural expenses of the program. Financial aid awards cannot be used to cover withdrawal charges.  Students may have a portion of these charges waived with appropriate documentation that the withdrawal was attributable to medical necessity.

WITHDRAWAL DATES

  • Block 1 or 2 Programs:   May 1, 2024
  • Block 3 or 4 Programs:   August 1, 2024
  • Block 5 or 6 Programs:   October 1, 2024
  • Block 7 or 8 Programs:   December 1, 2024

If you have never obtained a passport and are need of financial support in applying for a passport to participate in a CC off-campus program, you may apply for an Academic Opportunities Grant to help cover some of those expenses.   

It is highly recommended that as you apply for any Block Away you ensure that your passport is valid no less than 6 months beyond the end date of your program.  Many countries do not allow access if a passport is within its final 6 months of validity, so a renewal may be needed if your passport will expire within 6 months of the program's closure.  If your passport is due for renewal during this time frame, we recommend seeking the renewal immediately as passport processing times have been increasing over the past few years. 


ALERT: PASSPORT PROCESSING TIMES ARE GETTING LONGER. 

Times required to obtain a new passport or to renew a passport have grown considerably over the past year.  It now can take 4 months or longer to obtain a renewal or a new passport with standard service.  Even expedite service can take up to 3 month to process.  If you need a new passport or need to renew your passport, we recommend that you do so immediately, even before application and approval for a block away. 

As you are likely aware, there are many locations around the world where U.S. passport holders may enter for 90 days without a visa, but where residents and citizens of other nations are required to have a visa.  This is something to be cognizant of as you enroll in a Block Abroad that might take you outside of the United States. 

Please note you may have additional costs and requirements not common for U.S. citizens.  These include:

  • You may be required to obtain a visa for entry to the program’s host country when U.S. citizens do not. Visas commonly require paying a fee.
  • You may need to schedule visa appointments through consular offices outside of Colorado and travel independently to these appointments.
  • You may need to apply well in advance to obtain a visa appointment.  Please do not wait until the final weeks before departure to begin this process.
  • Financial aid does not cover any of these costs connected to applying for these visas for any block off-campus programs.

For assistance with any visa-related questions tied to a Block Abroad, please schedule an appointment with Kellee Fletcher in Global Education

If you believe you will need financial support in order to obtain the necessary visa for a program to which you have been accepted, please contact Global Education.  Funds are available (on a limited basis) from Global Education.  You can discuss this, as well as the visa process with Ms. Fletcher.

The class will convene for a week-long study at Leuphana University in Lüneburg, Northern Germany. Lüneburg, is an important milestone for the young 13-15 year-old Bach who served as a choir-boy at the St. Michael Church in that small city. During this week we will study Bach’s music in historical and theoretical/compositional perspectives.  After the Lüneburg week, the class will travel to other cities where Bach lived and worked, including Eisenach — his birth place — Weimar, Arnstadt, Köthen and Leipzig where he had his last job.  In each of these locations we will focus on and analyze related compositions, while exploring both the historical and social aspects of Bach's time.  We will attend many concerts of Bach’s music, concluding with a performance of the Christmas Oratorio in St. Thomas Church in Leipzig, the same church where it was performed for the first time in 1734.  Through the investigation of Bach’s most significant sacred and secular works we will further explore Bach’s enormous influence on western musical tradition from the late baroque on.  Ultimately, we will discover what makes Bach one of the most important composers in the history of mankind.

This course introduces students to dynamic contemporary arts scenes in India. Scheduled around the Kochi Biennale – Asia’s largest interdisciplinary contemporary arts festival in the port city of Kochi– and a unique residency with a contemporary theater company in the coastal city of Pondicherry, this course introduces students to a world of interdisciplinary contemporary artists and the critical questions they ask through their work. These cities have long oceanic cross-cultural legacies, colonial histories, and postcolonial movements. Beyond traditional western discourses about South Asian art stuck between tradition and contemporaneity, this class contextualizes place, critical histories, and artistic interventions. While focused on embodied art or performance traditions, this course centrally engages with visual, textile, and installation arts, and related knowledge systems. We will see performances, talk with artists, participate in the residency, and explore the cities through creative studies, alongside regular critical readings and discussions.

Panama_beach.jpegThis course will offer Colorado College students the unique opportunity to participate in an immersive musical and culture-based learning experience. Situated at the crossroads between North and South America, Panama’s vibrant cultural mosaic reflects the multiple migratory epistemologies of peoples across the region. Our course will be a hands-on exploration of the rich sonic and culinary tapestries that make up the nation’s musics and foodways, where the sounds and cuisines of Panama’s Indigenous populations and African immigrants combined with the music of its Andalusian settlers to create a unique set of soundscapes and culinary cultures. After our introduction to the capital city, the course will take students across the country: from exploring Panamanian Jazz, salsa, reggaeton, and folk music, to traversing Caribbean beaches that carry the sounds of Afro-Antillean music cultures, to the coffee-growing highlands that are home to the Ngobe Buglé Indigenous group, and finally to the Azuero peninsula—the heartland of Panama’s traditional típico music.
