Adult learners face unique challenges and often must balance their Colorado Christian University course work with family and career responsibilities. CCU faculty and staff realize that financial concerns often prevent many adults from returning to school to earn an undergraduate or graduate degree to further their career, to better themselves or to pursue a field they have always been interested in but have never had the time or the money to explore. Adult students at CCU often find our online degree programs are perfect for their busy lives. Thousands of adult students have earned degrees from CCU without ever having stepped foot on campus. Adult learners who take their courses online are able to communicate with instructors and classmates, turn assignments in via email, view classroom presentations and even take part in study groups all from their home computer. To learn more about online programs for adult learners, please read the Adult Degree Completion Student Admissions page.
