Colorado Christian University Graduate Reviews

19 reviews
The professors, the program, and the support staff are makes it worth attending this school. I was skeptical about attending a masters degree online program. The classes I have taken were all CACREP approved and I am receiving assistance with preparing for the National NCE exam before graduation. You won’t be disappointed in the education you receive from this school! I am empowered to learn from Both Christian and secular world views. This was the best choice I have made to continue my education!

"Colorado Christian University wants to prepare students who have a solid foundation under their feet. That is why we insist on a robust core curriculum," said Donald W. Sweeting, CCU president. "This is not only essential in preparing them for a dynamic labor market where they will have many different jobs, but also providing an essential civic literacy for our republic."

Sweeting added that multiple surveys reveal that most college graduates lack civic literacy which includes, among other subjects, basic courses in American politics, government, and U.S. history.

"CCU is addressing America's knowledge crisis; we require such courses," said Sweeting
I began classes at Colorado Christian University on August 27, 2018. My mother suffered a hip fracture on September 1st, 2018. She had hip surgery to repair the fracture. She was recovering from surgery when she contracted pneumonia complicated by her Parkinson's disease. On September 14th, I had to sign a DNR order because the doctors could no longer do anything to help her. She passed away on September 22nd, 2018. I was three hours away from home without internet service during most of September. I kept in touch with my professor by phone. He was very understanding and let me make up my work without any late penalties. Colorado Christian University even sent me a sympathy card signed by staff members to express their condolences for our loss. CCU understands that life is unpredictable and work with students for their success.
