Most spring 2021 classes at the Community College of Aurora are being offered online/remotely. This decision was made for two main reasons: 1) to allow you to be able to start or continue your education in the safest way possible, and 2) to minimize stress and disruption in your lives.
This page contains information on what the spring semester will look like, what course formats will be offered, CCA’s on-campus health and safety protocols, COVID-19 testing information, and more. It will be updated throughout the spring semester, so please check in when you can for important updates.
The Community College of Aurora will once again offer in-person student services starting Monday, March 1.
This decision was made because we know most of you, our students, prefer in-person services over online/remote service delivery. We want to do everything we can to enhance your student experience and set you up for the most success possible… and do so in a safe and healthy way.

CO Exposure Notifications is a free and voluntary service developed in partnership with Google and Apple that can notify users of possible exposure to COVID-19. By opting in, your Android or iPhone device will share anonymous tokens with other CO Exposure Notifications users using your phone’s Bluetooth. If another user you’ve been near tests positive for COVID-19 within a 14-day period, the service will notify you. If you test positive, you can easily and anonymously notify others to stop the spread of COVID-19. Visit the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment website to learn more about the app.
