Next Steps for Admitted Students

We know that as a new student, it can be challenging to go back to college. To ensure your success and readiness for your first class, we've put together a list of steps to help you get started.

1. Set up your CCU Login account.

Your first step is to create your CCU Login. (You will need your student identification number to sign up for an account. You can find your ID number in your acceptance letter, or you can call your enrollment counselor.) Once your CCU Login application has been approved, you will be able to access WebAdvisor for course registration, financial aid information, and bill payment; you will also have access to CCU wireless and network computers.

Review and update your Personal and Emergency Information to ensure that your information is accurate. Once you complete this process, you will be able to register for classes.

2. Register for classes.

You will use CCU's Student Planning tool to register for classes online. As a part of our student services for Adult and Graduate Studies, CCU's enrollment counselors for adult students will place the classes on your plan and will let you know when you should register for those classes. Please watch this 2-minute video tutorial to learn about online course registration, or download the User's Guide. To access Student Planning, log in to Self Service and click Student Planning. If you experience any issues registering, or if there are no courses on your plan, please contact your Enrollment Counselor. If you do not have his/her contact information, please call 303-963-3311.

3. Attend student orientation online.

Not sure what to expect from the college admissions process? Don't worry — it's all covered in our online orientation.

Please complete the online CAGS student orientation prior to your first class.

You will learn how to buy your books, maneuver your online course components, request your student ID card, identify your advisor, and much more! After completing orientation, you will have the correct tools to excel in your program and ultimately in the world, as you influence those in your family, workplace, and community. The CAGS Student Orientation is available as a reference and resource to you throughout your program at CCU. Continuing students are encouraged to revisit this site often.

Instructions to access student orientation:

You must have your CCU Login created and be enrolled in a course to access orientation.

  • Log into Brightspace using your CCU Login credentials.
  • Click the top tab labeled "My Courses" to access the link to your "New Student Orientation".
