University Transcripts and Diplomas

A Colorado Christian University 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 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. Electronic transcripts should be ordered when possible to ensure timely processing. Unofficial transcripts for current students may be obtained through Student Planning at no charge. For additional transcript information, go to the Transcript Request web page.

All Colorado Christian University diplomas are printed on 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's name, degree, major, and academic honors. The diploma does not include any minors, emphases, or cross-disciplinary studies. All students obtaining a degree from the University will receive one diploma per degree free of charge. Additional copies are available for a fee and can be ordered here. Students should allow up to 10 weeks following degree conferral to receive their diploma. CCU also provides a digital version of the student's diploma. Graduates can retrieve a digital diploma upon receipt of an email or text from our diploma partner explaining how to access their award. The digital diploma can be shared on various social media platforms via a verified link or via pdf.

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

Notice of Privacy Rights of Students

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, with which the University intends to fully comply, 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 also have the right to file complaints with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act Office concerning alleged failures by the University to comply with the act. CCU reserves the right to forward education records to other institutions that have requested the records and in which the student seeks or intends to enroll or is already enrolled so long as the disclosure is for purposes related to the student's enrollment.

The University's institutional policy concerning the 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.

Notice of Directory Information

The University designates the following student information as public or directory information. Such information may be disclosed by the institution for any purpose at its discretion.

  • Name, addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, dates of attendance, class level

  • The most recent previous institution attended, major field(s) of study, degrees, and awards received

  • Participation in officially recognized activities and sports, and the height and weight of members of athletic teams

Currently enrolled students may withhold disclosure of directory information under the provisions of FERPA. To withhold disclosure, students must complete the form provided on the Registration and Records page in CCU Connect.

Personal Integrity

Students are expected to maintain the highest standards of personal integrity. Cheating, dishonesty, and plagiarism in any form (unintentional or intentional) are contrary to Christian ethics and are grounds for course failure, probation, or dismissal. Plagiarism involves presenting the work of another as one's own. To avoid unintentional plagiarism, students should follow standard procedures for referencing papers and reports.
