Full in-person instruction and activities are planned for the 2022-23 academic year.

At Colorado Christian University, we are intentional about building a community of students, faculty, and staff united by a common commitment to Christ. In addition, we are committed to preserving the great advantages of a residential Christian college education at our Lakewood campus, while working to manage risks for our students and employees.

Covid-19 FAQs

Updated August 2022

Colorado Christian University maintains ongoing contact with Jefferson County Public Health (JCPH) officials to ensure that our Covid-19 plans are consistent with its requirements. See JCPH tips for preventing the spread of Covid-19.

Vaccines and Masks

Is a Covid-19 vaccine required for CCU students, faculty, or staff?

While Colorado Christian University does not require on-campus students, faculty, or staff to be vaccinated, the University encourages students and employees to receive a Covid-19 vaccine. Please note that some programs students are involved in off campus may require a vaccine (i.e., some student teaching, nursing clinicals, study abroad, mission trips, etc).

Do students have to wear a mask on campus?

The Jefferson County Board of Health has not had a mask mandate in effect since February 12, 2022. As a result, masks are not required on campus. We will continue to monitor regulations for our county.

Are there any restrictions on large gatherings?

On-campus events, including Chapels, are currently scheduled for full in-person participation. We will continue to move forward with these events as long as local guidelines allow.

Health Services

If I am experiencing Covid-19 symptoms, or test positive, what do I do?

Everyone, regardless of vaccination status:

What happens next?

What if I am still sick after day five?

Does Health Services offer walk-in appointments?

We are asking all students who need to see the CCU nurse in Health Services to please make an appointment by calling 303-963-3365 or schedule online (student login required). This is to help prevent too many people in the health clinic at one time and to allow preparation time for students and their needs. It is possible that when calling, an immediate appointment may be available.

What if I need to miss class due to Covid-19 symptoms or a positive test?

Please see above information.

Residence Life

How many students will be assigned to a bedroom?

There is no change in the housing assignment process this year. Two students will be assigned to each bedroom as normal, unless a student has already paid for a single room or has been approved for a single as an accommodation through the Life Directions Center. Due to the large enrollment this year, some apartments will have an additional student, and all students should already be aware of this situation.

Will I be able to have guests to my apartment?

Yes, normal visitation policies apply.

Is there somewhere I need to go to get my temperature checked?

The University is not conducting health screenings. Students are asked to monitor their health and stay home when they are sick.

Can I visit my friend who lives in another building?

Yes, normal visitation policies apply.

How will CCU ensure the residence halls are a safe environment?

Students are responsible for their personal hygiene and encouraged to clean and disinfect all shared surfaces in their apartments.

Athletics

How many games will be included in the championship season schedule?

Each team is scheduled to play its full schedule of games according to the maximum allowed by the NCAA for each sport.

Is it possible that game schedules will be cancelled for 2022-23, and if so, what would be the impact upon student-athlete eligibility?

Currently, we are anticipating that all scheduled games will be played this season. With the anticipation that immunity is widespread among student-athletes, the likelihood of cancelled games or schedules is significantly reduced.

How will CCU insure my health and safety as a returning student-athlete in the midst of the pandemic?

Athletic trainers will monitor student-athletes daily. All athletes who displays any Covid-related symptoms will be tested to confirm whether or not they are Covid positive. If an athlete tests positive for Covid, they will be isolated from the team, and not allowed to compete until they are symptom-free, a minimum of five days from the onset of symptoms.

School of Music

Will concerts take place?

At this point, we are planning on live concerts taking place. See the School of Music performance calendar for event information and tickets.

What will happen if I am in an ensemble?

Ensembles will meet in person and with the full group. Masks and bell covers will not be required unless state or county orders change.

What if I am in an applied lesson?

Applied lessons will take place in person and masks are not required unless state or county orders change.

What will happen with theatre this year?

The theatre season will happen with live audiences and without masks unless state or county orders change.

Visitors to Campus

Will there be any Covid-19 restrictions for visitors to CCU's Lakewood campus?

CCU continues to operate in-person campus visits at our main campus in Lakewood. All visitors are required to check in at the information desk in the Anschutz Student Center or Leprino Hall.
