Volume Twenty-seven

Welcome to Colorado Christian University’s online catalog. As outlined in the University’s mission statement, CCU’s undergraduate and graduate curriculum integrates faith and learning in a scholarly environment that fosters critical and creative thinking, academic excellence, and professional competence. Each of CCU’s academic programs reflects this commitment. The ultimate goal for our academic programs is to train graduates to think critically and creatively, to lead with high ethical and professional standards, to embody the character and compassion of Jesus Christ, and to impact the world. This catalog serves as a resource for what is required in each of these programs and outlines academic policies and procedures that govern the University. We hope this catalog will serve you well as you make critical decisions regarding your education. We look forward to assisting you in achieving your educational goals.


The Academic Catalog is published annually by the office of the University Registrar, Colorado Christian University, 8787 West Alameda Avenue, Lakewood, Colorado 80226.

The catalog provides students with the best information available concerning the University and its programs at the time of publication. While every effort is made to provide accurate and up to date information, the University reserves the right to change without notice statements in the catalog regarding policies, academic offerings, standards of conduct, and charges for tuition, fees, and room and board. Since the University continually modifies and improves the curriculum to meet the needs of students, the catalog serves not only as a guide, but as an agreement between the student and Colorado Christian University. Students who are admitted to Colorado Christian University agree to abide by the University policies and codes of conduct.

A student who enrolls in the University will be allowed to graduate under the academic policies in the catalog published at the time of his or her initial enrollment or selection of a major, as long as the student has maintained continuous enrollment. A student who has not been enrolled for 366 days must apply for readmission and complete a degree program under the regulations published in the catalog that is in effect at the time of re-enrollment.
