I’m Alton D. Scales, president of Community College of Aurora. To our first-time students, welcome; to those returning; welcome back. And to those considering furthering their education at CCA, I want to take a moment to share a few things that you can expect at our college:
-- a great return on your financial investment;
-- a quality experience in the classroom;
-- world-class faculty, some of the best this region has to offer;
-- and for those looking to earn a bachelor's degree, we have guaranteed transfer programs to in-state colleges.
Our goal is very simple: to provide you a quality service that meets your educational needs, whether you are:
--taking classes as a high school student concurrently enrolled in college;
--obtaining your associate’s degree in order to transfer to a four-year institution;
--seeking to improve your job skills or change careers;
--or exploring a class or two for life enrichment.
We're here to provide you an opportunity to meet your goals and contribute to your personal growth -- one course and one student at a time. At CCA, class sizes are small, and the individual attention that results can be huge. Faculty with life experience in the fields they teach will know your name. They take the time to meet with you before or after class because they want you to succeed.
We have two campuses, strategically located to serve you. Our classrooms are equipped with some of the best technology within higher education. Our student body reflects the diversity of the greater Aurora community, allowing for numerous and varied points of view within the classroom. There are numerous financial aid opportunities available to help you get to wherever it is you want to go in your educational journey.
Until then, I look forward to seeing you in the hallways.
Alton D. Scales
