Colorado Christian University is proud to have veterans and active servicemen and women on our campus and taking courses online. Many students require financial assistance to pay for tuition and other expenses related to pursuing a college degree. For this reason, CCU, in cooperation with the United States Government, offers a variety of military tuition assistance options to help the men and women who have dedicated their lives to serving our country earn an undergraduate or graduate degree. Veterans and active duty military personnel can pursue an education that is not only affordable but one of the best in the nation. For a thorough explanation of the educational benefits afforded to military service members, veterans and their dependents, please read our page entitled, “Military Service Members and Veterans Educational Benefits.” The Post-9/11 GI Bill, VA-BI Bill, and Veterans Yellow Ribbon Program all offer tuition assistance to military members interested in obtaining a college degree.
