"I really enjoy CCU but the only complaint I do have is the fall semester of 2016 Financial Aid is a mess. If you add up the time frame we will be going into week six next week, I have yet to receive my refund. Funds have already went out but nothing, I have contacted FA and still have not heard back from them. We had one week off and apparently they did not count this into week 4 when FA was supposed to go out. I have talked with other students who have this same issue. If this is how it is going to be every semester I need to switch school. University of Colorado Colorado Springs and Pikes Peak community college have already funded their students. So I have no idea what the deal is at CCU. But I put school funds on my credit card, and I need to pay the card off. But this is a bit hard when next week is actually week 6 of the semester and you have yet to see one dime!"

"Colorado Christian University was an excellent choice for me! The school's values and the way they integrated those values within the program was exactly what I was looking for and could not be found at a public university. The accelerated format of completing a class every five weeks gave great momentum and sense of accomplishment. While the school offers to evaluate life experience for credit, I opted not to utilize it. They accepted ALL of my prior academic credits, which enabled me to complete degree faster. All of the advisors, admissions, financial aid and academic did their best to help me accomplish my goals. I highly recommend Colorado Christian University."

"Great community of believers. Amazing location. Great academics with a faith based education. Small class sizes so lots of one on one time with the professors."

"You will not make a mistake coming here. The work is hard no joke. I actually found my Bible courses were the hardest so far. This college is not for everyone. This school is very involved with you. Your advisor is always there. If you are looking for an easy college don't come here. One of the things you have to do to even get into this college is write an essay. I have read a few reviews where someone did not get in because of what he/she wrote. With that said you have to have some knowledge about the Lord, Bible etc. Honestly if you know very little take a class like Intro to the Bible first. Because so far all my classes require biblical work. Or you will seriously be lost. FA is awesome they help you and send you emails when needed. I have called them probably 30 times just for varies questions. They have always been nice and say that's what were here for! I take online and on campus classes. Accredited yes! Exspensive yes! I chose this college because they are very military friendly and after reading horrible reviews about some colleges in CO, I feel I made the right choice. This University is not a deploma mill! You have to do the work or you won't pass. There is a lot of reading. I have met other classmates who have taken the same class twice. Trust us, you don't want to have to take a class twice:) Each class is so much reading and work. So basically if you are serious about a University by all means this one will not let you down! This college is very will ran, we have student activities. My only dislike is the cost. I am willing to pay it, because I know I am in good hands here. Also try to order your books a week or two before a class starts. Don't worry if your book is out of stock, it is sent to you asap when it comes in. CCU also has a number of locations to fit your needs. Don't waste your time and money going to a school with bad reviews. Listen to those reviews. Seriously many people can't be wrong. If you want a great college in CO that is for sure military friendly for you and your spouse, this is it! My husband just graduated here 2015! He willbe getting promoted this year because he has his degree. I love CCU everyone is so welcoming and I feel like I am right at home. Blessings!"

"First, the entrance counselors are wonderful. Secondly, the counselor that was assigned to me was very helpful regarding my program and putting the classes together so that I could economize. Thirdly, most of the professors that I had interaction with were very helpful and were very interactive throughout the entire online course."

"This school is based on a Christian World View no argument, with that said, the school and the staff is clear in what they want out of you. If you are taking on-line classes you are required to write 1-2 pages a week, plus take part in the thread of discussion. I have a full time job with overtime and I am able to keep up with the work load. CCU is both online and in-seat or purely online or in school. I have mixed both and you really have the freedom to choose your work load. Religious class credits do not transfer, but all others do. Great school especially if you are a devout Christian. On-line is perfect if you work long hours, or have a shy personality. I strongly suggest going to a cheaper school for you generals, I made the mistake of not doing so and I'm currently trying to figure out how I am going to repay the loan. Oh yeah, order your books a week prior to class beginning, reading is intensive. YES I do recommend this school even if you are not strictly Christian, you learn some interesting qualities about Christianity. Papers are APA format: important"

"I am very pleased with the school. The online lectures are out of this world. Having the ability to sit and physically listen to the instructor is awesome. The assignments can be difficult but I feel I have actulally learned from the class with all the research that must be done. Personally, I was intrigued by the accredation. So many online colleges have a great program but unfortunately they don't have the accredation to back you up once you are through with your program. So in my honest opinion it is not the easiest thing I have ever pursued, but it certainly has been very rewarding. The advisors, instructors, and any other faculty member make it a priority for you to pass your curriculum. The support is great here."
