Before you apply to CCU's College of Adult and Graduate Studies for admission to our Alternative Licensing Program, candidates must apply to the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) for a Statement of Eligibility (SOE). The CDE determines the areas in which a candidate is qualified to teach.
After you have received your Statement of Eligibility (SOE) from the Colorado Department of Education – and secured a full-time teaching position in a public or private school – you may apply for admission to CCU's Alternative Licensing program.
The application for admission to CCU's Alternative Licensing Program is available online, giving you the flexibility to complete your application and access required documents in multiple stages.
Your first step in applying to CCU is to Create an Account. The information from this secure account will automatically be entered on your online application, simplifying the process to complete the application.
The graduate program application and fee should be submitted electronically. Please print copies of required documents as necessary and submit them to Colorado Christian University, College of Adult and Graduate Studies Admission.
If you have any questions, please contact your CCU Enrollment Counselor to assist you with the application process.

Admission to a licensure program in the College of Adult and Graduate Studies does not guarantee licensure at the completion of the program. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure they meet all licensure requirements which often includes a background check.
You can enter the Alternative Licensing Program at multiple points in the academic year. You should complete the admission process as early as possible so you will have adequate time to work with an advisor and qualify for financial aid.
