Welcome Transfer and Military Students +
Colorado Technical University supports the philosophy that related courses, demonstrated proficiencies, and professional experience knowledge may be used to satisfy some course credit requirements. Credit granted for past experience, training, certification, and testing may reduce the time required to earn a degree. Transfer credit will be accepted upon evaluation and at the discretion of Colorado Technical University in all cases. Not all credits are eligible to transfer. See the university's catalog for CTU's transfer credit policies.
As a military centric university, CTU aims to help active military, veterans, reservists, or their spouses pursue education and achieve your personal, professional and academic goals while serving our country, transitioning to civilian life, or supporting a military spouse. The dedicated CTU military team provides guidance through military education benefits and financial aid options, helps maximize transfer credit for eligible service and training, while taking advantage of military tuition rates and grants.
