University Transcripts and Diplomas 



A CCU transcript is a comprehensive record of a student’s academic progress at Colorado Christian University, and the University’s certified statement of the student’s academic record, including coursework, grades, and degrees earned. The conferred date of degree is based upon the term in which the last graduation requirement is completed. The transcript includes all degrees, majors, minors, emphases, certificates, cross-disciplinary studies, licenses, and any applicable academic honors conferred with their respective date. Transcripts do not include honors or merits obtained at previous institutions, nor does it include extracurricular activities that bear no academic credit.

Official transcripts will be provided upon request through CCU’s online ordering system. E-transcripts are the preferred ordering method to ensure timely processing. For additional transcript information, go to the Transcript Information website. Unofficial transcripts for current students may be obtained through WebAdvisor or Student Planning at no charge.


All Colorado Christian University diplomas are printed on 8”x10” high quality paper. Student names are printed on the diploma as requested on the graduation application. The conferred date of degree is based upon the term in which the last graduation requirement is completed. The diploma includes the student name, degree, major, and academic honors. The diploma does not include any minors or emphases. All students obtaining a degree from the University will receive one diploma per degree free of charge. Students should allow 6 to 8 weeks following degree conferral to receive their diploma. Additional copies incur a replacement fee.

Letter of Completion

A letter of completion is a letter stating the student has completed all requirements but has not yet graduated. Letters of completion will not be fulfilled for students with an outstanding balance owed to the University or for students who have a conferred degree. Information on receiving transcripts, letters of completion, and replacement diplomas can be found in the student handbook or on line at

Privacy Rights of Students


The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 is designed to protect the privacy of education records, to establish the right of students to inspect and review their records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. Students have the right to file complaints with the FERPA office concerning alleged failures by the University to comply with the act. CCU reserves the right to forward education records to other institutions so long as the disclosure is for purposes related to the student’s enrollment.

The University’s institutional policy concerning privacy rights of students explains, in detail, the procedures to be used by the University for compliance with the provisions of FERPA. Copies of the policy and a list of all records maintained on students by the University are available from Service Central online.
