About Colorado Christian University

Colorado Christian University is an accredited, interdenominational Christian college located in Colorado. The university was founded in 1914, and it currently offers programs through its College of Undergraduate Studies and College of Adult and Graduate Studies. Traditional undergraduate students can attend courses at the main Lakewood campus, while those seeking graduate degrees or a more flexible learning experience can take courses online or at one of CCU's regional centers.

The College of Adult and Graduate Studies enrolls nearly 7,000 students and offers more than 80 programs designed specifically for adult learners. The undergraduate, graduate, licensure, and certificate programs are offered both online and at several Colorado locations, and they include courses that incorporate a Christ-centered viewpoint that has been a cornerstone of this university for more than a century. Program options include associate's degrees in general studies or criminal justice; bachelor's degrees in accounting, early childhood education, and nursing; master's degrees in business administration, biblical studies, and cyber security; and a variety of undergraduate and graduate certificates. Adult students have several options for accelerated degree completion, including flexible transfer credit policies and credit for prior life experiences.

Colorado Christian University has been named a military-friendly institution by G.I. Jobs each year since 2012, and it offers on-base classes and assistance in Colorado. The school has also been ranked in the top two percent of colleges nationwide by the American Council of Trustees and Alumni and was named one of the 'Best Four-Year Colleges for Adult Learners' by Washington Monthly in 2016. CCU is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
