Degree: English

I would not recommend CCU to anyone. At first, it seems like an awesome university and worth the high price; however, after enrolling in classes you are left on your own. It's nearly impossible to get answers regarding anything, unless you are wanting to enroll in another class. The staff don't seem to know the answer to any questions regarding University protocol. The financial aid department regularly gives out inaccurate info. After attending for one semester, I dropped all my future classes prior... Read More

Degree: Creative Writing

It’s easy to enroll and seems like everything will be straightforward and like your typical college experience. However, this has not been the case, in the least. First, the cost of classes for the absolute lack of an education is laughable. I attended a private Christian university and a state University prior to enrolling and both were far cheaper for a much better education. Plus, I always received prompt responses and accurate financial information. Second, after you start your first class, you... Read More

This school gives so much false advertising! They present them self like this too good to be true and it is! The enrollment and getting accepted and getting started is to easy. But as soon as you no longer want to pursue it's Takes months to drop a classes and they do it on purpose so you have to pay for them. They take all your financial aid before you even being the course. And when I called to ask why all this is going on they give you the run around. Long story short: easy to enroll, exhausted...

Degree: Theology

An extremely good online Masters program that was excellent preparation for future opportunity in a PhD program. I had close faculty contact (and feedback), excellent textbooks and courses, and met lifelong friends. Online programs like this necessitate consistent interaction and investment, but CCU made this easy with small class sizes (They averaged 11!) and good access to professors email and text numbers. I earned an MA in a year and a half and had several options in ministry, chaplaincy, and... Read More

I would not recommend this school to anyone. I went from community college to here while still doing class work at my community college ( which I loved) . We had a recruiter come to my school and I thought I'd look into it. I talked to an advisor and she immediately got me signed up, which in theory sounds nice but red flag I did not know the cost of the class going into it, which I wish I would have. I was told discounts were still being applied and tried to figure financial aid out and my final... Read More

Degree: Small Business Management

My first class was great! The instructor was amazing. Unfortunately that was the only good thing I can review. I was signed up for classes by my advisor without even getting to choose. I’ve had to withdraw from the second class due to husbands health and his father being very sick with cancer. His father passed away this past week. On numerous occasions I have reached out to counselors to try and navigate and figure out what to do. Not one call has been returned from Clay Haverty. Now my financial... Read More

Do your research before you agree to join this program! I am a missionary wife and am having a very negative experience attending this school. Also, get documentation of everything that is promised! Don't rely on phone calls. Trust me, they will ignore your pleas for documentation and pressure you to take their phone calls. These will not protect you in case they don't keep their promises to you. Everything I write is from an ongoing experience right now. It is promised on their website that you... Read More

Degree: Organizational Leadership

I attended Colorado Christian University with big hopes (and promises) of learning from solid Christian leaders about how to lead people orientated organizations in Truth. While there was some good learning about leadership and real world applications of the bible today, the faculty of this school seems to hold their students to a much higher standard than they hold themselves. I was earnestly searching honest Christian mentorship, but at every turn it seems there was somebody standing in my way... Read More

CCU was overall a good experience. I felt like I grew in both real world as well as spiritual knowledge. I was even an RA on campus for a while and enjoyed how much effort the school put into created a close campus feel. I had gone there to study global studies and poly sci. However, my JR year my dad was involved in a serious accident. I decided to move home to help take care of him and made the switch to online. CCU made it incredibly difficult for me to switch, saying school wouldn't be easier... Read More

Colorado Christian University is an amazing college experience. The community within the student body is close connected and intimate. The faculty and staff are truly interested in getting to know you as an individual and want to help you succeed. They have so many resources that they make available to students. Personally, I have made many life longs friends during my college experience and my professors have helped to prepare me for my future career. I highly recommend this college to anyone who...

I came to CCU believing God was calling me there, because CCU recruitment was amazing. Now that I have spent time here I regret spending lots of money to come to a school where I am extremely unhappy. Going to class is a waste of time, because all the professors do is read off the power point and that's it, no extra information, I could do that from home and be done with the class in 2 weeks if all I had to do was memorize a power point. You're also limited to the amount of days you can miss a class... Read More

Degree: Business Administration

Absolutely awful. The first couple semesters were okay. The enrollment process was simple, it was only after committed to the program that I was made aware that it was going to take over 3 years to complete my degree. The classes themselves have little real-world application, and there is a HEAVY focus on relating every assignment to the bible. My student service adviser was difficult to get in touch with and didn't make my options clear, which resulted in a substantial charge to my account. With... Read More

If you are not caucasian, seek a degree elsewhere. I was an online student. The school can tell ethnicity by your name. The instructors will grade you according to that racial doctrine, yes they fix grades. The only way to get an honest evaluation of your progress at this school is by taking a quiz that's graded by a computer. The tuition at this private school is sky high. Simply put, I hate this school!

Colorado Christian University is a great school, and perfect for an adult. Their learning structure is one that aligns well with the life and mind of an adult student. It is an accelerated, 5-week per class program that requires one paper a week, consisting on average of 2-4 pages, until the final, which requires a few more pages. The subject matters are of real-world consequence and can be immediately applied. CCU understands that the adult student is not a full-time student; rather, they are part-time... Read More

Recieving my Bachelor's from Colorado Christian University was one of the best decisions I ever made. Before attending CCU, I had been a student at two other universities (that I really didn't feel very connected to) under several different majors. When I finally decided to pursue my degree in Biblical Studies, my first choice was CCU due to their amazing attendance options (in-seat, online, hybrid, etc.), incredibly affordable tuition model, and really focused semester-block system. Everyone from... Read More

GREAT school and professors. So far I have only had 2 or 3 professors that were not that great, but that is not bad out of 2 years of study. The financial aid department is top notch! The professors I have had are wonderful and caring and always available to help out. I love this school!

I am in my first semester at CCU. So very not impressed. First I get a registration person who is not very good at answering questions in a timely manner if at all. Issues with financial aid as well as the book store. Now going into fourth week of classes find out they didn't take half my transfer credits after being told they are very generous about that.

I want to be honest in saying that a degree at Colorado Christian University comes with significantly more work than a general university, due to the demands of 180 "ministry hours" (volunteer work) before you graduate, and 180 verified chapel attendance points. It becomes very difficult to work, volunteer, attend chapel, and be a full-time student; especially if you have little to no familial financial support. But, I also want to say that I felt 100% prepared in the job force, and I secured a full-time... Read More

I attended CCU and received my Bachelor's Degree. I am now at the same school and pursuing my Master's Degree. Going to CCU is easily one of the best decisions I have ever made. I attended, and continue to, online. You do need to be self-motivated to be an online student. If you follow through with the assignments you will be fine. I graduated Summa Cum Laude because of this. Every professor that I had did everything they could to provide the best experience. I have no bad experiences with any professor.... Read More
