CCA Fall Semester Update – Building Hours and Mask Guidelines

The Community College of Aurora (CCA) is accelerating the transition back to the college’s CentreTech and Lowry campuses this summer and will complete that process fully for the fall 2021 semester. This transition plan is built on two premises: 1) having employees back on campus will help us to better serve our current and prospective students, and 2) it will be safe to return based on widespread vaccine availability and guidance from local health experts. 

Below is information on the college’s new building hours and mask guidelines. Most CCA buildings are now open and in-person services can be accessed.

Fall Semester

Employees will complete their return to campus on August 2 with offices fully open. There may still be adjustments to how classes and other events are offered. Fall classes start on August 23 and the majority of classes will be held on campus.

Most fall classes will be held in-person: 65% of the classes will be fully in-person, 82% will have at least some in-person participation, and 18% will be offered as hyflex and/or hybrid. Register today so you don’t miss out on the classes you need. You can view the fall class schedule and learn about CCA’s different course formats.

Financial Assistance

Need help paying for college? You’ve come to the right place. CCA has tons of financial assistance options for you: 

  • FAFSA money. Filling out and submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which is free, is the most important thing you can do if you want federal financial aid. Billions of dollars in grants, work-study, and low-interest loans are awarded to college students across the country every year. 
  • $1 million in fall CRRSAA money. CCA has $1 million in Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) tuition and emergency grants available for fall students. These funds will also be awarded in the form of $800 grants to students. Apply for those funds
  • PLEASE NOTE: All students, regardless of immigration status, including DACA recipients, other undocumented students, and international students, are eligible for the federal CRRSAA funds.
