Community College of Denver is a Service Members’ Opportunity College. Join our nearly 300 veterans on campus and get started on completing your educational goals today.
Once enrolled, get additional support through our Veterans Support Program.
With our help, you’ll get enrolled and ready to start classes. You can also download the Admissions & Registration Guide.
Veteran Administration forms are, at times a bit complex, requiring information you may not have close at hand. Below we have provided a link to each form in PDF format. This will allow you to read the form and gather any needed information prior to filling it out online.
The first step to enrolling in CCD is to create an account and apply online. Don’t forget to save your student identification number.
As a veteran, in addition to applying for enrollment to the College, you will need to submit the following pieces of information to CCD's Veteran Support Services.
You must submit an official transcript from any previous education obtained, including any Military Transcripts you might have. To request and submit Military Transcripts, learn more at the American Center for Education; otherwise, follow the directions below.
Veterans are eligible to apply for financial aid and receive your GI Bill. Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This is your application for all federal and state grants, loans, and work-study.
In general, students who have completed college-level English and math coursework at a regionally accredited institution of higher education with a grade of “C” or higher are exempt and do not need to take a placement test. Students with minimum ACT/SAT scores within the past five (5) years may also be exempt. However, if the English and math assessment requirements are not met through a transfer of credits you may need to provide unofficial/official test scores to the Testing Center or determine course placement through another means.
All new first-time students must attend an orientation before receiving advising. A hold will be placed on your account until you have attended an orientation session. Transfer students are encouraged to attend orientation.
Get the academic advising process started early! Your academic advising session is your opportunity to discuss educational plans and find out what classes you will start with at CCD. Please visit or contact the Academic Advising and Student Success Center to get connected with your academic advisor.
Your student CCDConnect email account is the official means of communication between you and the College. Once you have registered for classes, you will gain access to your student email account. At least once a week you should sign in to the CCDConnect student portal and view your registration, financial aid status, and check your email.
Pay your tuition and fees in full at least one week before classes start.
While a student on campus, you will have access to a wide variety of services to help you adjust to campus life, study and get tutoring, as well as finding other veterans just like you. Connect with Veteran Support Services.
