Student Achievement Award

Through CCU’s Student Achievement Award, adult undergraduate students may qualify for our discounted full-time tuition rate.

To qualify for the Student Achievement Award, students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), complete a course with a passing grade in any block, and enroll in the immediately subsequent block. Coursework in the immediately subsequent block will qualify for the full-time tuition rate, equivalent to a $100 per credit discount off the part-time tuition rate.

‡ The Resource Fee goes into effect with the fall 2018 semester, and covers all technology resources as well as the CCU Bookstore’s Textbook Butler. Textbook Butler is an unlimited service, with all textbooks shipped to students at no additional cost. Rental books are shipped to the address on file at CCU, and will arrive approximately one week prior to the class start date. Information on accessing digital resources are sent to the student via email. Students who register less than 10 days prior to the class start date will incur an additional expedited shipping fee for physical books. Effective with the spring 2019 semester, the resource fee is non-refundable for students who administratively drop or withdraw from a class after the drop deadline. Students who are registered for courses with no required textbooks, or if there is no use of the Textbook Butler for whatever reason, a lower resource fee of $41 per credit hour will apply. The resource fee is capped at $123 for the student teaching course. All required textbooks are now included in the resource fee.

For questions, call or email the Service Central office to speak with a Service Specialist about your CCU charges: 303-963-3040 or 800-25-START. Current account information is always accessible in your Self-Service Finance account.

Note: Tuition and fees may be subject to change without notice.
