Since Community College Denver is an open-enrollment institution, you will receive an acceptance letter through your email. However, international student acceptance is contingent on the receipt of the required documents as stated below. You will be contacted by a representative within 3-5 business days of submitting your International Application.
Once the application is complete, all documents must be submitted by the deadline date for an admissions decision to be made. Be sure to include the pieces listed here. Please email clear copies of your documents to International@ccd.edu - due to Covid-19 we are not always on campus to collect documents in person.
You must provide a United States or international bank statement showing that your parents or sponsors have a minimum of $35,132.00 U.S. dollars, which covers a nine-month academic year’s tuition, books, insurance, and living expenses. If you can provide proof that you will be living with a family member and will not need to pay for housing, we will accept a minimum of $27,797.00 U.S. dollars in an account. Some acceptable forms of statements include:
Examples of financial documents that will not be accepted include:

Depending on your status upon applying to CCD, you may be asked to provide these documents before or after final acceptance: valid identification (Visa, Passport, I-94), proof of health insurance, a copy of current I-20, and/or other documents to maintain your F-1 status at CCD.
Make sure that your health and any accidents are covered by purchasing health insurance. Health insurance is required for all international students. You are required to have health insurance coverage before the first day of classes. If you have not already, please email a copy of your insurance card.
Here are a few resources if you are still in need of health insurance.
Your student email account is the official means of communication between you and the College. At least once a week you should sign in to CCDConnect to view your registration and check your email.
Your advisor will assist you in finding the correct major, review your testing scores, and help you find the right classes for your degree plan.
If you miss the payment deadline, you may be dropped from all classes and your original classes may no longer be available.
You are responsible to pay by the payment deadline, each semester. To avoid your classes from being dropped for non-payment, please make sure that you do not have any pending balances. Please download the international student financial affidavit of financial support form or you may request one from the Office of International Student Services.
Your classes may be dropped if CCD has not received your final financial guarantee (FG) before the payment deadline. Your government may request additional documentation from you to obtain a final financial guarantee. Please contact your sponsor and advise CCD on the status of your final FG.
To help you meet all of your educational expenses, CCD offers a payment option using the Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS). NBS is a tuition management plan that provides you a no-interest method for paying college expenses.
To enroll, connect to the student portal and follow the online enrollment process. Be sure to complete your name, address, budgeted amount, the method of payment, and the payment schedule. A confirmation return email will verify your enrollment.
Please be prepared to provide the International office with your copies of I-94, Visa, Passport, proof of Health Insurance, and current I-20 (if you are transferring).
