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 50 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. 

Affording CCU
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. A job fair is held every fall for students seeking on-campus leadership positions, jobs, and internships. 

The value of your investment
Returns on investment at CCU manifest in academics, spiritual formation, and life-long community. We’re committed to career readiness and have successfully matched over 1,400 students with employers through our Employment Management Service. Through training in competence and character, students graduate ready to impact the world with grace and truth.

Apartment-style living

Our goal for on-campus housing is to enrich the academic experience and strengthen the sense of Christian community for our students. That’s why all our students live in fully furnished apartments, grouped together into themed stairwells and pods. This intentional design encourages shared space, family-style dinners, and events. All apartments are complete with a kitchen, wireless high-speed internet, cable TV, and private bathrooms. Living in an authentic Christian community can be life changing, and we believe apartment living brings students together and positively shapes our community.
