CCA Cares

The college is committed to improving our community through a supportive and collaborative approach. The mission of the CCA Cares program is to prevent, intervene, and manage challenging situations that arise for members of the community. We aim to identify underlying causes of such potential harm so that preventative action may benefit the students and the college community alike.

The CCA Cares form is overseen by the Assistant Dean of Students for Conduct & Case Management (ADoSCCM). The Assistant Dean of Students for Conduct & Case Management along with other members of the Dean of Students team, Student Affairs Professionals, and other CCA Campus Partners (such as Academic Affairs Professionals and members of the Public Safety Department) collaboratively work together to address concerns reported via the form.

REPORTING A CONCERN:

Faculty, staff, students, and community members are encouraged to submit concerns via the CCA Cares Form:


Commencement

Coordinated by the Commencement Planning Committee, CCA’s annual commencement ceremony celebrates the accomplishments of our graduating students.


Locker Rentals

Student Affairs rents lockers for student use on both campuses. Lockers are available for the semester or for the full academic year. For updates about locker availability and rental procedures, please check the Portal or email Student Affairs.


Orientation and Chimera Welcome Week

CCA welcomes new students each fall and spring with New Student Orientation and Chimera Welcome Week, which are coordinated by the Orientation Planning Committee. Featured workshops and activities support the academic and personal success of all new students.


Parent & Family Resources

CCA partners with parents and families to help students thrive and attain success. Connect with the CCA community via social media, including the CCA Parents and Families Facebook Group, and stay informed with additional resources.


Prayer, Meditation, & Reflection Space

CCA's Prayer, Meditation, and Reflection space allows students and employees to experience a place of peace and sanctuary. The room was designed by LMNOP Design, a San Francisco-based firm that was founded by and consists of CCA Architecture alumni.

Location: Between W2 and the Student Lounge, Main Building, San Francisco // Hours: 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. Daily (For after hours access, contact Public Safety: 415.703.9510.)


Property & Renters Insurance

CCA recognizes the importance of ensuring the safety of personal property. While CCA does not cover students' lost, stolen, or damaged property, we strongly urge all families to contact their insurance agents, check their homeowner's policies, and/or to consider purchasing renter's insurance.

CCA does not recommend or endorse any individual insurance company. However, please note that Arthur J. Gallagher & Co. provides information regarding personal property coverage.


Student Behavior

CODE OF CONDUCT:

CCA expects its students to uphold the college’s values of artistic and academic excellence, compassion, integrity, and global citizenship. Student Affairs oversees administrative procedures, community outreach, and educational programming regarding the Student Code of Conduct and related policies.

To report potential violations of the policies listed below: CCA Cares: Reporting a Concern Report.

RESIDENTIAL COMMUNITY STANDARDS AND POLICIES:

CCA-provided housing carries with it the additional requirement all students conduct themselves as responsible members of the college residential community as well as the surrounding neighborhood community.

Academic Integrity

The Academic Integrity Code, overseen by Academic Affairs, is to be upheld and enforced by all CCA students and faculty members. Depending on the nature and severity of the incident, violations of this code may result in academic or disciplinary sanctions, or both, up to and including failure of the course and dismissal from the college.


Student Insurance Plan

CCA is committed to ensuring all students have the appropriate resources to uphold their physical health and wellness.

Per CCA policy, all students who are registered at full-time status (12 or more units per term for undergraduate students; 9 or more units per term for graduate students) are automatically charged for and enrolled in the CCA student insurance plan unless they submit an approved insurance waiver that meets all of CCA's minimum requirements by the established deadline (which typically aligns with the end of the Add/Drop period).

The CCA student insurance plan includes health insurance coverage; dental and vision insurance coverage; and a One Medical membership.


Student News & Announcements

Throughout the fall and spring semesters, the weekly CCA Student Affairs News & Announcements emails will provide helpful reminders, share useful tips, and highlight programs and services designed to help students succeed at CCA.


Student Success - Access/Disability Services

The mission of Access/Disability Services is to ensure that all students can access the learning environment at CCA. Access/ Disability Services accomplishes this by ensuring students with disabilities have equal access to educational opportunities at CCA and by providing all students access to disability support services.


Student Success – Learning Resources

Everyone learns differently. Learning Resources helps CCA students connect to the people, tools, and techniques that can help them learn best. Coaches provide individual attention and guided inquiry to help students enrich their knowledge and communicate their creative vision.


Transgender Students

As a welcoming and inclusive college, CCA strives to provide transgender students information and resources that are relevant and useful.


Undocumented Students

As a welcoming and inclusive college, CCA strives to provide undocumented students information and resources that are relevant and useful.


Wellness

CCA is committed to its community members' academic, professional, and artistic well-being. That includes focusing on mental health, physical health, social health, and spiritual health. Check CCA email (e.g., Student Affairs News & Announcements), campus flyers, and the CCA Portal for updates.
