The 2020 First-Year Student Admissions Application is Open

You are a first-year student if you are applying directly from high school (regardless of concurrent enrollment, meaning college credits completed while in high school), have graduated from high school (and never attended college), have a GED or have been home-schooled but have not enrolled at a college or university.

The Fall 2020 Transfer Student Application is Open. The Spring 2020 application is now closed.

You are an incoming transfer student if you have graduated from high school and have enrolled in college or university coursework after completing high school.

The Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, otherwise known as the Clery Act, is a federal law that requires institutions of higher education to provide current and prospective students and employees, the public, and the Department of Education with crime statistics and information about campus crime prevention programs and policies.  Colorado School of Mines publishes the Annual Security and Fire Safety Guide by October 1 of each year to comply with the requirements of the Clery Act and contains policy statements, crime statistics, and fire statistics for the school.  The policy statements address the schools policies, procedures, and programs concerning safety and security,  for example policies for responding to emergency situations and sexual offenses.  Three years of statistics are included for certain types of crime that were reported to have occurred on campus, in or on off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the school, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to our campuses.
