My experience at CCD has been nothing but positive. It has been a perfect fit for me. The class sizes are always less then 25 people which is exactly what I need in a class. I have only had great teachers, all of them being positive and helpful and always going the extra mile whether that is meeting outside of their office hours, or finding another way to explain something to me when I'm not understanding something. I have nothing but great things to say about this school and the faculty!

It's a centrally located, affordable school to get all of your general education credits done prior to transferring. You can earn your associates or pursue an advanced degree upon graduation/transfer, and it's FAR more affordable than traditional 4-year schools. The environment during the day is upbeat and friendly, but because of it's location, it can become less favorable at night. Professors are decent, and classes are small. It's easy to find help from faculty or tutors. All-in-all it's an excellent place to start your education.
Very diverse campus in a location convenient to downtown. The campus itself is co-located with Metro State and UC Denver, so it has the facilities of a major four-year institution at a reduced price. Most of the professors are engaging and want you to succeed. Parking can be a problem (hard to find and expensive), but that's why the RTD bus pass (charged as part of the fees) comes in handy.

The enrollment and financial aid process goes much smoother if you plan ahead, apply early (for admission and financial aid) and don't wait until the last minute.

I went here, got my AA here, and my BA at UCDenver. Everything transferred over to UCD seamlessly.
