However, CCU will continue to accept applications after these deadlines until our enrollment capacity is reached.

    • Application essay responses

    Students who do not meet these minimum requirements are encouraged to apply and the University will consider their application under a committee review process which may include a personal interview. Factors such as essay content, recommendation content, and extracurricular activity all contribute to an individual admission decision.

    As soon as I stepped onto CCU’s campus, I knew I was home. God’s presence was visible through all of the students and faculty I met when I came out for a preview, and even though Colorado is a long way from home, I have a strong community here that truly is my second family.
