President's Message

Message from Everette J. Freeman

Community College of Denver - Start Here. Go Anywhere!

For nearly 50 years, CCD has been welcoming people from all over the world and helping them achieve their personal goals. Start Here. Go Anywhere! Here, you’ll study in a real-world setting that prepares you not just for academic success, but also for success in a chosen career field. All you need is curiosity and a mind resolute toward personal and academic growth. We recognize that it takes grit and determination to excel academically and our staff and faculty are dedicated to your success.

That success requires an investment of time and resources and we hope you will take it as seriously as we do. If we push you, it is because we care and know fully that you can travel this course from start to finish.

CCD’s 2017-2018 Catalog provides a wealth of information about college life and educational programs that are available to you. Treat this catalog as your academic "yellow pages," namely, a resource you can always find answers to questions about CCD, the course we offer, academic majors and their requirements, and much, much more.

Highlights of CCD:

  • Choose from over 100 degree or certificate programs representing options that will prepare you for a four-year degree or provide job-specific skills.
  • CCD guarantees students who graduate with an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree will be able to transfer credits to Colorado public colleges and universities.
  • CCD has achieved the designation of Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). Because 27 percent of our students are Hispanic, CCD receives federal funding and grant opportunities, which offer scholarships and learning programs for HSI colleges.
  • Several programs are available to assist you in achieving academic success including the Tutoring Center, TRIO Student Support Services, the Resource Center, and the Career & Transfer Center.

With nearly 9,000 students, CCD is a community of curious, active learners who understand what it means to try and try again–and grow in the doing. Try us. Stay with us. Graduate.

Welcome to CCD!

Warm regards,

Dr. Everette J. Freeman

CCD President
