About Us

Since 1914, Colorado Christian University has nurtured the success of its students and graduates through a rigorous tradition of academics rooted in Christian values and ethics. CCU helps connect students with their unique success stories through a wide range of traditional undergraduate, adult undergraduate and graduate degree programs, as well as educator licensing and certificate programs.

We offer:

  • A variety of undergraduate and graduate certificate programs through the College of Adult and Graduate Studies

Our Difference

At CCU, we believe the heart is as much a student as the mind, so we enrich our academics with a biblically based perspective that prepares graduates to share their faith with the world, no matter what career role or industry they choose to pursue. We develop leaders across all fields on a strong curricular foundation that enhances empirical understanding and application with a robust influence of Scripture as the beginning and endpoint of all wisdom.


For more than a century, CCU's learning community has journeyed together to reach individual career and education aspirations, led by an administration and faculty committed to the highest standards of education underlined by real-world experiences. CCU's faculty and staff are dedicated to inspiring students to achieve career and education goals while integrating their faith with their chosen discipline.


Denver Bible Institute was founded in 1914 on two principles – grace and truth. From these two seeds, Colorado Christian University grew and was officially established in 1989 as an evangelical, nondenominational university of learning and faith. Today, more than 5,000 students are achieving their education goals at CCU.
