• Military Service Members and Veterans Educational Benefits


    Colorado Christian University’s accelerated undergraduate degree and master's degree programs prepare students for lifelong learning and leadership roles in the military, in business, and in public professions. In order to make education more accessible for students in the military, CCU offers academic programs online and at convenient locations throughout Colorado. These flexible education opportunities cater to the needs of adult students who have full-time employment, work shifts, and are prone to short notice moves or deployments. CCU’s staff works cooperatively with base education services personnel at the following locations in Colorado and Wyoming.

    • Buckley AFB (Colorado)
    • FE Warren AFB (Wyoming)
    • Fort Carson (Colorado)
    • Peterson AFB, including the 302nd Air Wing (Colorado)
    • Schriever AFB (Colorado)
    • United States Air Force Academy (Colorado)

    Special Military Tuition Assistance

    Colorado Christian University’s College of Adult and Graduate Studies offers military financial aid through a reduced tuition rate for military service members. The reduced tuition is extended to military service members and their adult dependents in an undergraduate program. The military tuition rate is equivalent to the Military Tuition Assistance limit per course, which means that service members taking undergraduate classes in CCU’s College of Adult and Graduate Studies program will incur no out-of-pocket tuition costs (under the present Tuition Assistance rules). Courses may have required fees which are unaffected by this policy.

    Armed Forces Educational Credit and Residency Recognition

    Military service personnel and veterans may receive undergraduate credit for Basic Training and other formal educational experience gained while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Potential transfer credit may already be documented on the CCAF (Air Force), AARTS (Army), and SMARTS (Navy/Marines) transcripts.

    Options for Military Recruits

    Colorado Christian University is a member of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges (SOC) Consortium. The goal of CCU's membership in SOC is to make it easier for service members to complete college degrees through flexible transfer credit policies and academic residency requirements; as well as credit for military training and experience, and CLEP and DSST testing programs.

    The University is also a participant in the Concurrent Admissions Program (ConAP). ConAP goals are to increase enlistment of college-capable active-duty and reserve soldiers, to increase the number of Army soldiers, veterans, and reservists enrolled in college, and to increase the use of Montgomery GI Bill education benefits.

    CCU is approved for federal veterans' education benefits to qualified students. Applicants for these benefits may secure forms by contacting Service Central at 303-963-3230 or VASupport@ccu.edu. Eligible students should keep in mind that benefits may not be received for a number of weeks after enrollment and should be prepared to meet University expenses until the veteran benefits arrive.
