I attend CCU online, and I am in love with this school. I was on a path that I wasn't very happy with spiritually. I felt something in me change from the moment I spoke to the admissions rep. My life have done a complete 360 and I am getting better and better everyday. Thank you CCU, for showing me the path that God wants me to take in life, and empowering me to be a better person, mother, wife, and most of all daughter of Christ

I love that it is taught from a nondenominational Christian view. I love how my classes are planned out, so that I can continue to be active in ministry and full time employment. The enrollment counselor was amazing as well as the financial aid team. I wish I had enrolled here sooner!

I love CCU and wouldn't choose any other school because of how encouraging everyone is. They have student advisors that can help you along the way in your program. The professors are approachable and encouraging as well.
