There are many reasons students pursue higher education at Community College of Aurora in Colorado. One motivation: our commitment to helping our students succeed. We've developed many resources to assist our students, whether they need tutoring, assistive technology, or just a bit of knowledge on study habits or time management.
In addition, our new Student Success Center is devoted to helping students succeed. Come by and see what we can do for you: CentreTech Campus Student Centre, S101
CCA's Learning Resource Center provides the perfect environment, services and resources for your needs.
We also offer an Accessibility Services Office, which provides accommodations and assistive technology to students with disabilities to afford them an opportunity to reach their highest possible potential in higher education. Let us work with you to determine if you can receive these services to help advance your education.
And our Academic Support Lab was created for students at all levels to promote their academic success. Resources are provided to prepare students for college-level courses and help them succeed once enrolled. Free drop-in tutoring is available in certain subject areas. Check our Tutoring link for more information.
The Learning Collborative
The Learning Collaborative can help students build additional skills in math, reading, or writing to retake the Accuplacer. This is a non-credit, ten week course which provides 60 hours of instruction and tutoring to improve math, reading, or writing skills.
The Counseling office contracts licensed counselors who will meet with you, listen and help figure out options to address your individual problems and challenges. We then provide referrals to both on-campus and community resources to help you handle what life sends your way. We do not provide traditional, ongoing counseling or therapy, but we will work with you to find the support and assistance you need.
Student Success Center
The Student Success Center's mission is to promote student success through dedicated support in an inclusive and authentic academic community. Available programs include the TRiO SSS, Transfer Success Program and more.
The Trio program offers support to first-generation and low-income students along with those with a documented learning or physical disability. Students are assigned an advisor and have access to various academic resources, including tutoring, help applying for scholarships and laptop loans. The overarching goal of the program is completing an associate’s degree on a pathway to transfer to a four-year institution.
