What I like most about Colorado Christian University is the integration of faith with coursework. At CCU, They offer the flexibility to take classes online or in-person and fixed tuition. The teachers and staff members are always friendly and available when help is needed.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I can't think of a bad experience since I started attending classes at CCU.



They are fair, honest, helpful, and dedicated to seeing you grow as a Christian and they are there to assist you in any way possible to help you successfully reach your academic goals. They give students the opportunities along with the experience of learning about our Heavenly Father and Worship Services that warms my Heart ❤️ 😇🙌🏾 Colorado Christian University is the best college I’ve ever been to. Colorado Christian University is hands down the best!

I am currently attending CCU online and I would highly recommend CCU. From the beginning, they were always there answering any questions that I have and they are still constantly contacting me and asking if I need anything. They are so helpful and knowledgeable it is one of the best college experiences that I have ever had and I have had a few.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

You should be aware that this is a Christian school and so you will have to take bible classes if this is not something that you are comfortable with then you may want to rethink CCU.



Colorado Christian University offers a Biblical perspective for every class they offer even if the class isn't religious in nature. The instructors are all strong believers in Christ and are both firm and fair.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

As an online student, class due dates do not change even if they fall on a holiday that happens on a weekend. It would be good to allow online students an extra day when Easter falls on a Sunday. Very small issue that really isn't worth mentioning.

The student advisors and professors help you to reach your best potential.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I believe that paying attention to your student loans along with being active in your school work is very important. I believe double courses at one time can cause a person significant if they are not time-consuming.
