Taking care of veterans and active service members and their families is very important to the faculty and staff of Colorado Christian University. In order to make education more accessible for students in the military, CCU offers academic programs online and at convenient locations throughout Colorado. These flexible education opportunities cater to the needs of adult students who have full-time employment, work shifts, and face short notice relocations and/or deployments. CCU’s staff works cooperatively with personnel at the following locations in Colorado and Wyoming.
- Buckley AFB (Colorado)
- FE Warren AFB (Wyoming)
- Fort Carson (Colorado)
- Peterson AFB, including the 302nd Air Wing (Colorado)
- Schriever AFB (Colorado)
- United States Air Force Academy (Colorado)
CCU’s College of Adult and Graduate Studies (CAGS) offers tuition assistance for veterans and servicemembers through a reduced undergraduate tuition rate for service members and their adult dependents. This program applies to undergraduate programs and means that military members taking CAGS undergraduate courses will not pay out-of-pocket tuition costs; courses may have required fees which are unaffected by this policy. Undergraduate credit may be given for basic training and other experience gained while serving our country. CCU is a member of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Consortium whose goal is to make it easier to military men and women to earn college degrees through flexible credit policies and by providing credit for military training and experience. CLEP and DSST testing programs are also available to service men and women.
All master’s degree, bachelor’s degree, and certificate programs in CAGS are approved for payment of GI Bill education benefits.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill is an education benefit program for veterans who served on active duty on or after September 11, 2001.
Learn more about GI Bill payment information and Montgomery GI Bill payments on CCU’s website. CAGs also offers reduced undergraduate tuition for active duty military and their dependents that began in January 2012.
