Admission and University Policy

Admissions and University Policy for Students With Disabilities

Equal Access Statement

Colorado Christian University (CCU) is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities in order to provide all students equal access to academic programs and the university experience. Individuals will not be discriminated against on the basis of disability or be denied equal access and reasonable accommodation to the educational opportunities and student life experiences available at CCU.

It is the responsibility of the student to make their disability status and need for accommodations known to the Accommodations and Accessibility Coordinator in the Life Directions Center (LDC).

CCU is unable to lower program requirements, provide individualized supervision, or make modifications or substitute courses if the modification or substitution would fundamentally alter the learning objectives of the educational program. Additionally, requirements that are essential to earning a degree cannot be waived.

Qualified Individual

A qualified individual under ADAAA/Section 504 must have a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities. Major life activities involve but are not limited to: caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working. Moreover, a qualified student with disabilities must meet academic and technical standards required for admission or participation in an educational program or activity. Students are required to make their disability status and need for accommodations known to the Accommodations and Accessibility Coordinator in order to receive accommodations.


Admissions decisions are made without regard to disabilities. All prospective students are expected to present academic credentials that meet or exceed the minimum requirements for admissions. Prospective students with disabilities are not required to disclose their disability to Admissions. However, those interested in receiving academic adjustments are encouraged to meet with the LDC Accommodations and Accessibility coordinator for guidance regarding services.


The documentation and accommodation process is designed to identify students with legitimate needs as defined by the ADAAA/Section 504. Compliance with the ADAAA does not guarantee that an individual with a disability must achieve an identical result or level of achievement as persons without disabilities. Equal access is not the same as success. For further definition of the difference between success and equal access, contact the Accommodations and Accessibility Coordinator in the LDC. Reasonable accommodations should not decrease or alter course requirements/course objectives or reduce academic standards. Instead, they may slightly alter teaching or testing methods.
