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 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 extracurricular activities that bear no academic credit. 

Official transcripts will be provided upon request through CCU’s online ordering system. Electronic transcripts should be ordered when possible to ensure timely processing. Official transcripts will not be released until all accounts are paid in full. Unofficial transcripts for current students may be obtained through Student Planning at no charge. For additional transcript information, including the ordering process, go to the Transcript Request web page.


All Colorado Christian University associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degree diplomas are printed on 8”x10” high-quality paper. Student names are printed on the diploma as requested on the graduation application. Degrees are conferred throughout the year upon verification that all program requirements have been 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 paper diploma per degree free of charge. Additional copies are available for a fee. Students should allow 6 to 8 weeks following degree conferral to receive their diploma.

CCU has provided a digital version of the student’s diploma effective with the Fall 2018 graduating class. Graduates can retrieve their digital diploma upon receipt of an email or text from Parchment explaining how to access their award. The digital diploma can be shared on Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter via a verified link. Graduates can also download or email a secure PDF of their diploma and can access their Parchment account at any time to share their diploma.

Letters of Completion

Since degrees are conferred upon verification that all program requirements have been completed, letters of completion are no longer provided. Students can order an official transcript to provide evidence of completing their program requirements.

Information on ordering transcripts and replacement diplomas can be found online 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.
