Policies

Through CCA’s commitment to student success, policies are put in place to foster a safe learning environment.

It is the policy of Community College of Aurora to comply with the Colorado Clean Indoor Air Act (in effect July 1, 2006), which prohibits smoking within all buildings of educational institutions. It is also the procedure of the college to declare the college grounds and properties as a tobacco-free campus. Smoking will be permitted in college parking lots, but it must be a minimum of 25 feet from all entrances/doorways and common walkways.

Sexual Misconduct, Discrimination & Harassment (Title IX)

The CCA community has the right to be free from sexual violence. All members of the CCA community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. CCA is committed to a zero tolerance policy for sex/gender-based misconduct. For more detailed information please visit the CCA Title IX Frequently Asked Questions webpage.

 

The General Assembly implemented the Student Bill of Rights (C.R.S. 23-1-125) to assure that students enrolled in public institutions of higher education have the following rights:

  • Students should be able to complete their Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree programs in no more than sixty credit hours or their baccalaureate programs in no more than one hundred twenty credit hours, unless there are additional degree requirements recognized by the commission.
  • A student can sign a two-year or four-year graduation agreement that formalizes a plan for that student to obtain a degree in two or four years, unless there are additional degree requirements recognized by the commission.
  • Students have a right to clear and concise information concerning which courses must be completed successfully to complete their degrees.
  • Students have a right to know which courses are transferable among the state public two- and four-year institutions of higher education.
  • Students, upon successful completion of core general education courses, should have those courses satisfy the core course requirements of all Colorado public institutions of higher education.
  • Students have a right to know if courses from one or more public higher education institutions satisfy the student’s graduation requirements.

The Community College of Aurora prohibits and will not tolerate discrimination or harassment that violates federal or state law, Board Policy 3-120 or Board Policy 4-120.
