Most spring classes will once again be offered online/remotely. This decision was made for two main reasons: 1) to allow you to start or continue your education in the safest way possible, and 2) to minimize stress and disruption in your lives.

Dear CCA students,
I hope you’re all doing well and having a good semester.
I’m writing to let you know that most spring 2021 classes at the Community College of Aurora will once again be offered online/remotely. This means that most classes, with a few exceptions, will not meet face to face.
We made this decision for two main reasons: 1) We want you to be able to continue your education safely, and 2) We want to do everything we can to minimize stress and disruption in your lives. This fall, we saw a lot of colleges across the country start the semester by conducting classes in-person, then they moved to an online/remote format because of an unsafe number of COVID-19 cases, then they moved back to in-person instruction. We don’t want to do that to you. We want to give you a safe, consistent, and certain learning environment.
Three class types will be offered in the spring: remote, hybrid, and online. You can learn more about those class types here. Registration for spring classes opens November 2. The schedule will identify which classes are remote, which are online, and which are hybrid. The most important thing to note is that you’ll still receive the same high-quality instruction from the same high-quality instructors … the content will just be delivered in a different way.
If you have any questions about anything, our departments are having informational Zoom sessions every week. You can sign up for one—or more—of those Zoom sessions here.
Lastly, we understand that times are tough and want to help you in any way we can. CCA has over $500,000 in scholarship money available. Please be sure to take a look at these scholarships. The spring scholarship application period is currently open and will continue through November 30. It’s our hope that these funds will provide some relief in these challenging times and help you stay on your educational path.
