We're Transforming Online Education
Today’s learners need affordable and flexible options that fit their busy lives. Our next-generation online model, called Colorado Online™, combines all 13 of our colleges’ high-quality online offerings to provide students more learning opportunities and outstanding support— and the best part is students will have access to all this from the comfort of their home.
Colorado Online leverages CCCS’s best-in-class online learning infrastructure and combines the strength of thirteen colleges’ online courses and programs.
Colorado Online is an innovative, enterprise-wide online learning model that's first of its kind in the nation.
Breaking Barriers, Enhancing Opportunities
Colorado Online meets students where they are in life and enables them to realize what they want to be in life. Through Colorado Online, students have access to online courses taught by their home college as well as online courses taught at other CCCS colleges.
No matter where a student resides, they will have access to in-demand programs that lead to great-paying jobs. This means a student in a rural part of the state can access courses, or complete a program, that is not offered at their home college. And the same goes for students located in metropolitan regions.
Colorado Online is currently being piloted at select CCCS colleges and will be available statewide by Fall 2023 semester.
Support at Every Step
Taking online courses doesn’t mean going it alone. Colorado Online is a bridge from the student’s home college to additional courses and program opportunities at other colleges.
Through this enterprise model, students will receive personal support in advising, financial aid, registration, technology needs, job placement and career advancement, and other services that get students across the finish line. Plus, students can always visit their home college to connect with peers and attend campus events.
In-Demand Programs & Transfer Options
Through Colorado Online, students will have access to online courses and programs that they can take when it’s convenient for them. That means you’ll never have to set foot on a campus to earn your certificate or degree.
Students can go at their own pace, with accelerated course and program options of 7-weeks, 10-weeks, and 15-weeks.
And credits will seamlessly transfer to four-year colleges and universities through our Bridge to Bachelor’s Degree Program.
Leading the Pack
For over 20 years, CCCS has been recognized as a national leader in online learning and open education resources (free online textbooks and course materials).
We’re enhancing our award-winning platform to expand access to courses and programs across the state with small class sizes and expert instruction.
