$1,000 scholarship to CCU Online!

Colorado Christian University's "A Christmas Short Story Contest" has ended. The winning story will be posted on CCU's Back to School blog and the top three submissions will have the opportunity to have their work critiqued by best-selling author Jerry B. Jenkins!

Over 100 Online Degree Programs

School should revolve around your life and not the other way around. That's why CCU Online programs are online and only five weeks long. You don't have to put your values on hold either. All courses are taught with a biblical worldview.

Plus, if you are pursuing your undergraduate degree, you could also qualify for up to an additional $2,000 off your tuition with CCU's Transfer Scholarship.

CCU's generous transfer policy makes it easy for you to transfer credits and get you closer to your degree. You can transfer up to 45 credits toward an associate degree, up to 90 credits toward a bachelor's, and up to 12 credits toward a master's degree. CCU also provides you with options to earn college credit for life experience.

If you didn't get a chance to enter the contest, there are still many options when it comes to paying for college.

  • Joe De La Cruz – B.S., Nursing

    "I am a 45-year old retired Air Force veteran. Adjusting to civilian life, has not always been easy. CCU, unknowingly, has provided me hope with a new career. I look forward to helping sick people with Christ right beside me."

  • Amy Starnes – B.A., Elementary Ed.

    "Returning to college at age 40 has been a journey of faith full of mountains and valleys, but God has been faithful. With a family, work, and a busy life, CCU put classes at my fingertips."

  • Scott Russo – B.S., Criminal Justice

    "CCU is Christ centered, and they mean that. The 'my progress' page helps me stay goal focused by seeing what I have completed and what is left. With CCU incorporating the Lord in all classes, I can keep my eyes on the prize."

  • Jennifer Kovach – M.A., Counseling

    "God used CCU to push me out of my comfort zone and into my calling. I believe CCU’s vast interdenominational student body gave me a bigger perspective on tough subjects that the world is currently going through."
