DPS graduates can attend Community College of Denver for free this fall

Eligible 2020 graduates of Denver Public Schools can attend the Community College of Denver for free this fall, the college announced Tuesday.

“We want to help you continue on your educational journey while staying safe during these uncertain times,” read an announcement from CCD.

The offer comes as colleges across the country grapple with the impacts of the new coronavirus, which has many institutions — including the Colorado Community College system — predicting a decline in enrollment as students wait to see what the status of the highly contagious respiratory illness is come fall before shelling out tuition dollars.

CCD plans to offer a mix of in-person and remote learning options for the fall.

To qualify, 2020 DPS graduates — including undocumented students — must:

  • Meet the requirements for in-state tuition.
  • Fill out a financial aid application or income information form.
  • Apply to CCD and register for at least six credits.
  • Be in good academic standing if you took concurrent enrollment classes at CCD in high school.

The offer ends July 15.
