I am a proud alumnus of Colorado Technical University. I received a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice in March of this year (2007). And I did it all without going to a single class. Colorado Tech is a university in which you are able to receive an entire degree through their online programs. Colorado Tech is an actual “brick and mortar” school and is just not an online university. Therefore, the student has the option of attending class or going online as well as a mix of both. That approach accommodates single parents, non-traditional students, and traditional students. The school also accommodates those wanting to receive a Bachelor’s Degree or Master’s Degree, and they even offer certificate programs. Colorado Tech offers a massive variety of certificate and degree programs. Colorado Tech is a nationally accredited university. They are accredited by The Higher Learning Commission.
Several of the certificate’s that are available Crime Scene Investigation, Business Management, Human Resource Development, Human Resource Management, Business Administration, and Project Management Specialist.

As a student of their online school I believe it is necessary to tell you all of the resources available to traditional as well as online students. With a click of your mouse you can access admissions, career services, student accounts, technical support, registrar’s office, book store, financial aid, library, student advisor’s, virtual commons, and labs. The library allows the access of hundreds if not thousands of websites, journals, books, magazines, articles, magazines, and of course books. You have such a wide range of options to help with the research of assignments. The bookstore will take care of sending you books to you. However, I believe the school is now using more and more e-books. Meaning that you will not receive a physical book, you can just look at them online. Virtual commons is a place to meet up with friends and other students. It shows you how to navigate everything you will need to know. Colorado Tech also offers students the option of joining clubs. Since I was attending for a degree in Criminal Justice, I was also a member of the Criminal Justice Club (which helps to spice up résumés). There are several labs in which students may take. Some of the labs are as follows, math, English, Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, and APA.
Financial aid is available to all that qualify. Colorado Tech even offers several scholarships and grants to traditional and online students. The cost is not cheap nor is it expensive; it is about what any other technical university would cost. I have had a tremendous experience at Colorado Technical University. As a matter of fact, I have even applied to teach there. If you are interested in checking out what the university has to offer I have placed the information at the bottom of the page.
