Taking a gap year at Community College of Denver is a great option during these uncertain times.
We are a fully-accredited institution, and hundreds of our classes are accepted for transfer into 4-year universities. The Colorado Department of Higher Education has negotiated transfer agreements with all public colleges and universities. Meet with us to discuss what classes you could take, then check with your home institution.
Our tuition rate is one of the lowest in the state, with an average three-credit class costing less than $800 for Colorado state residents. Do the math, that’s often 40% less than a traditional 4-year college.
Our classes average 25 learners, so your professors can give you personalized attention. Our professors have a master’s degree in their subject area, and in fact, many of our instructors also teach at 4-year universities (some at MSU Denver and CU Denver).
We can help you apply for financial aid, grants and scholarships. CCD has more than a million dollars in scholarship funds that we distribute every year.
We offer many of our classes in a fully online format. Right now, many more of our classes have moved to a remote-learning format. We’re addressing health and safety changes for those classes that require an in-person component.
We offer one-on-one tutoring help if you should need assistance with your classes. We also offer many student events online, so you can still have a fun, if not entirely traditional, college experience. Additionally, we offer support services to all our students – such as counseling services, career planning, and tutoring. Academic advisors are able to help you make your gap year decisions.
