The CCU Difference
Colorado Christian University cultivates a knowledge and love of God in a Christ-centered community of learners and scholars with an enduring commitment to the integration of exemplary academics, spiritual formation, and engagement with the world. At CCU, we want you to learn how to learn, and we believe that goes far beyond four years of study and a degree. Academics aren’t just about increasing knowledge but transforming you as a person.
Faith and learning
With over 100 majors, minors, and emphases to choose from, you’ll integrate dynamic learning with rock-solid faith and begin to discern God’s plan for your life. Students complete 180 ministry hours during their time at CCU and engage in first-year discipleship groups, chapel twice a week, and student-led mission trips.
CCU partners with parents and students by offering merit scholarships and student employment opportunities to help fund your education. In fact, 99% of undergraduates qualify for some form of financial aid. An all-campus job fair is held every fall for students seeking on-campus leadership positions, jobs, and internships.
