You could be a college student at CCA!
Many high school students take classes at CCA’s CentreTech and Lowry campuses. Their school districts pay the student share of tuition, and the students are responsible for their own transportation, books and class materials. The classes are nearly all general education classes that are guaranteed to transfer to other Colorado community colleges and public four-year colleges and universities. Students must meet CCA’s requirements and any prerequisites for the course, such as test scores in reading or math. These are not special classes just for high school students; you would be taking classes along with all other CCA students.
To take classes at CCA:
1. Get an application packet from your high school counselor.
2. Complete the paperwork, including information and signatures from your parent or guardian.
3. Return the completed packet to your counselor.
4. Using your high school records and your ACT scores or Accuplacer test scores (can be taken at CCA), work with your counselor to find the college classes you are qualified to take and that will help fulfill your high school graduation requirements.
5. Apply for the College Opportunity Fund (COF) at https://cof.college-assist.org/.
6. Meet with a CCA concurrent enrollment representative to sign up for classes.
7. Attend orientation.
8. Buy books.
9. Attend class at CCA.
These are general procedures. Not all school districts participate in this program. Please contact your high school counselor for your district's policy.
