Information for Visitors about COVID-19

In response to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic, Colby has cancelled all admissions events including campus tours, information sessions, and group visits through at least May 31. The Admitted Students Program and admissions day visits for the Class of 2024 have also been cancelled. We regret we will not have the opportunity to welcome you to campus this spring, but we look forward to sharing more information about Colby with you in the weeks and months ahead. Should you have any questions in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact us at
