Community College of Aurora

2016-17 DSF Student Success Requirements

Community College of Aurora is an official DSF Partner College that provides DSF Scholars with additional support on campus to help you be successful.  DSF wants you to succeed as you pursue your education. To that end, students at CCA must meet certain Student Success Requirements to maintain scholarship eligibility. Please note Student Success Requirements may change from year to year. Please review this page for the most accurate information concerning your Student Success Requirements.

Denver Scholarship Foundation students at CCA are served though the Student Success Center (CentreTech Campus, S101).  All DSF Scholars will enroll and participate in the TRiO Student Support Services or the Transfer Success Program within the Student Success Center.  Both programs provide intrusive advising and require students to have knowledge of and utilize academic support resources available on campus. All DSF Scholars must connect with the DSF Campus Contact as soon as possible to determine which program they must enroll in.
