The Community College of Aurora provides exciting new certificate choices in response to current workforce demands. We help students adapt to a bright new future by offering real life learning certificate programs in health care, sustainable energy technology, essential business skills, multimedia and web design, translation and interpretation, advanced computer technology, and more. Students obtain essential skills that prepare them to achieve their career goals, all at a great value.
CCA faculty and staff are committed to creating an environment that is open, caring, and honest.
Faculty are experienced and keep up-to-date on technological advancements and trends in their fields so that CCA curriculum is relevant and of the highest quality. CCA is a community where faculty take extra time to help dedicated students achieve success. Data show that when our students transfer to four-year schools, they earn higher grades than students who started college at those four-year institutions.
We specialize in offering classes at convenient times and locations to meet studentsâ€™ demanding schedules. CCA has hundreds of online, hybrid, and evening/weekend classes, as well as brand-new â€œopen entryâ€ classes that start every week. Our ExpressEd 10-week certificate programs are designed to retool employee skills or launch new careers quickly. Students may choose from more than 40 degrees and certificates in transfer and occupational education, and CCAâ€™s core classes are guaranteed to transfer to Colorado public colleges and universities. Our tuition and fees are nearly half of what students pay for the same education at a public or private university.
CCA has two campuses located at Lowry and CentreTech Parkway. Our friendly and courteous staff are known for their outstanding customer service. Their efforts ease the stress that many new students feel when they start college straight out of high school or after a prolonged absence. When visiting with CCA advisors, students discover the most effective path for achieving their goals. Enrollment and registration staff help students navigate the computer system to get registered for classes. Financial aid counselors help students pursue possible scholarships and loans to help pay for their education. Friendly greeters show students where classrooms are at the beginning of each semester. Small class sizes, labs, and free tutoring support and enhance student learning. CCAâ€™s Career Center services guide and prepare students for successful employment.
