Colorado Christian University is committed to making a Christ-centered education available to veterans, dependents of active duty military and veterans, and to future leaders in the military.
CCU is a Yellow Ribbon institution and is approved for Veterans Affairs Educational Benefits provided by the Montgomery GI Bill, the Post-9/11 GI Bill, and Vocational Rehabilitation. All associate and bachelor degree programs in CCU's College of Undergraduate Studies (traditional, residential-based programs) are approved for payment of GI Bill education benefits. In most cases, the benefits provided by the Post 9/11 GI Bill cover the full cost of tuition and fees, provided you are receiving 100% of the benefit.
In addition, traditional undergraduate students taking classes on campus are eligible to participate in Army and Air Force ROTC programs and receive scholarships. If you are interested in using your VA-GI Bill benefits, or the benefits of a parent or guardian in CCU’s College of Undergraduate Studies, please contact our Undergraduate Office of Admission.
The priority application deadline for financial aid and scholarship consideration is April 1 for the fall semester and November 1 for the spring semester. However, CCU will continue to accept applications after these deadlines until our enrollment capacity is reached.
CCU sets test scores and grade point averages as our minimum level of acceptance for traditional undergraduate students. Normally, the minimum requirements for admission are:
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.
