2022 Parent/Guardian Form


CH Families, 

We are working to streamline the application process and make all parts of the application electronic to eliminate printing, scanning, and/or mailing hard copies. We will NOT ask families to mail copies of their tax forms. If your student is admitted to the program, parent/guardians may be asked to submit additional financial information to determine need-based financial aid and college financial fit.

APPLICATION DEADLINE (for New and Returning Applications):
March 1st, 2022 at 11:59pm MDT

Your Student

Primary Parent/Guardian Contact
We ask for families to identify one parent/legal guardian to serve as the primary contact for this summer’s program. Due to the remote structure of the program, we will need to be able to communicate application and program updates regularly with parent/guardian by email and phone. Please ensure this information is correct and complete.

Mailing Address Confirmation
We need your help verifying the mailing address for your student. All College Horizons participants will receive a college guide book, t-shirts and CH partner college information. We must have the correct mailing and physical address. Please complete this section carefully.
Below, please provide a MAILING address where you currently receive U.S. Postal Service mail. P.O. Boxes are acceptable in this section.

College Horizons also requires you to provide a physical SHIPPING address where you can receive UPS and FedEx packages. This is typically a street address - UPS and FedEx will NOT ship to a P.O. Box.
