Student Services - (CAGS)


Services for International Students and Third Culture Students

Students desiring a Certificate of Eligibility for Non-Immigrant (F-1) Student Status for American and Language Students (Form I-20) should contact the Coordinator of Student Services in the College of Adult and Graduate Studies for information.

Services for Students with Disabilities

It is the policy of CCU to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Acts (ADA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and state and local regulations regarding students and applicants with disabilities. Pursuant to these laws, no qualified individual with a disability shall unlawfully be denied access to or participation in services, programs or activities at the University. Students with a grievance should consult the College of Adult and Graduate Studies for instructions regarding how to file a complaint.

In carrying out this policy, CCU recognizes that disabilities include mobility, sensory, health, psychological, and learning disabilities, and will attempt to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals, to the extent that it is readily achievable to do so. We are unable, however, to make accommodations that are unduly burdensome or that fundamentally alter the nature of the program, service or activity. Students with disabilities seeking a Certificate of Accommodations should first complete all admissions requirements to the College of Adult and Graduate Studies and then contact the Coordinator of Student Services. Students need to supply the Coordinator of Student Services with appropriate documentation that is no more than 3 years old before a Certificate of Accommodation can be produced. Certificates of Accommodations are valid for one academic year, and must be renewed each year through the College of Adult and Graduate Studies.

After receiving a Certificate of Accommodation, It is the responsibility of the student to make his/her needs known in a timely manner to their professors.

The University makes admissions decisions using criteria that do not consider an individual’s disability. Thus, the University will not impose or apply admission or eligibility criteria that screen out or might screen out individuals based on their disability, unless such criteria are necessary for the provision of the program, service or activity being offered. Students with disabilities desiring to enroll in any program, service or activity at the University must be able to meet the minimum standards of the University and the chosen program. The University does not engage in any affirmative action programs for disabled students nor does it consider a student’s disability in evaluating admissions criteria. It is, of course, within the student’s discretion to inform the Admissions Office of a disability if they wish. If this choice is made, the University will not discriminate against the student on the basis of the disability and will make reasonable accommodations when necessary and appropriate.

College-Level Examinations Program (CLEP) and Defense Activity for Nontraditional Education Support (DANTES) Testing Policy

Colorado Christian University will accept credits as applicable in any program for students who score at or above established levels on many CLEP and DANTES tests. Cut-off scores for granting credit will be those scores recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE). Credit received will be treated as transfer credit and will count toward graduation as applicable. Information about specific CLEP and DANTES tests, equivalent courses, and scores may be obtained from the Service Central office.
