Colorado Community Colleges: Inspired Higher Education
There are currently 13 Colorado community colleges within the Colorado Community College System (CCCS), some with multiple campuses. Combined, the colleges make up the largest higher education system in the state, serving more than 128,000 students annually.
Colorado community colleges offer strong academic programs as well as Career and Technical Education (CTE). Many of the 2-year degrees awarded at the colleges are guaranteed to transfer to any public college or university in Colorado.
CCA fulfills a unique roll as one of the Colorado community colleges. With campuses in Aurora and Denver, there is convenient access for a large service area, with many unique programs offered. Our Colorado Film School is renowned as one of the best film schools in the country. Our nursing pathway program is a model program that allows students to attend both CCA and the University of Colorado College of Nursing to earn a Bachelor of Science in nursing. With programs like the Police Academy, Fire Academy, EMS, and the Disaster Management Institute, we provide a number of ways to learn to serve and protect our communities. And new programs like Solar Energy Technology are frequently introduced to meet tomorrow's job market needs. Next: learn more about what makes CCA a top community college in Colorado
