The majority of students in CCU's College of Adult and Graduate Studies are independent adults supporting themselves and their families. At CCU, we are committed to helping our adult students complete their undergraduate degree quickly and affordably – while maintaining individual academic excellence.
The College of Adult and Graduate Studies follows a year-round semester system consisting of three blocks per semester for most adult undergraduate courses. We encourage students to enroll in courses during each block so they can complete their degree as quickly as possible. Also, in order to qualify for financial aid, students must enroll in at least six credits per semester. To qualify for full-time financial aid, students must enroll in at least 12 credits per semester.
Upon completion of these requirements, coursework in the subsequent block will qualify for a $100 per-credit discount off the undergraduate tuition rate, a way that CCU offers rewards for students.
For example, undergraduate students who earn a passing grade in Block 1 and enroll in Block 2 will receive a $100 per credit hour discount on their Block 2 tuition rate. If students then earn a passing grade in Block 2 and enroll in Block 3, the students will qualify for the full-time tuition rate – a $100 per credit hour discount – on their Block 3 tuition rate. As long as students are continuously enrolled and earning passing grades, they are eligible for the discounted full-time tuition rate in each directly subsequent block.
When a student qualifies for the Student Achievement Award, it will appear as "award pending" on their CCU account. The award will be disbursed to eligible students after verification of their attendance in the subsequent block.
