Ulises Venegas-Rivera in front of a University of Southern California sign

The Community College of Aurora’s Communications and Marketing Department recently caught up with former CCA student Ulises Venegas-Rivera, who is now attending the University of Southern California.

Ulises attended classes at CCA from fall 2016 to spring 2017 and transferred to USC in fall 2018. He has spent the last two semesters at USC, going to football games, getting to know Los Angeles, and attending classes on a campus that features more than 40,000 students.

My name is Nereida Arroyo-Ramirez and I’m a recent graduate of the Community College of Aurora. At CCA, I earned an associate of science (AS) degree in biology.

I started at CCA as a concurrent enrollment student during my senior year at Gateway High School and quickly moved into the Accelerating Students through Concurrent Enrollment (ASCENT) program. I began taking CCA classes regularly after I left the ASCENT program.

During FAFSA Rush, students and their parents can come to our campuses, use our computer labs to fill out the FAFSA, and CCA Financial Aid staff will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. The U.S. Department of Education has permanently moved the FAFSA application start date to Oct. 1 to give students and their parents more time to plan and pay for college. Students and/or their parents can now fill out the FAFSA using their previous year tax returns or they can use their current tax return. But before you start the FAFSA application process, check out these nine tips from CCA Financial Aid Advisor Darin Wissbaum to make it easy and simple as possible to avoid any problems that could delay processing your application.

CCA Mobile App Icon

The CCA Mobile App is now available.

If you are a CCA student with a little extra space on your phone, the CCA Mobile app can make things a lot easier for you.

Available on Android and iOS, the CCA Mobile app was developed to make finding important student information such as grades, class schedules, and phone numbers more navigable for CCA students.

And since the app only requires 20 MB of space, you should be able to fit it on your phone next to Snapchat, Spotify, and Facebook. (You can actually use the CCA Mobile app to replace Facebook – but more on that later.)

The app is simple to use and very easy to understand with a menu bar that is easy to understand and figure out. You shouldn't have any problems with the app since it is straightforward and minimal.
