What Our Students Are Saying
“UCCS made the transfer process simple. From allowing me to tour campus, to helping me set advising meetings to ensure I am on the right track to graduating, I was able to effortlessly make the transition. The College of Business at UCCS has brought promising opportunities for the career ahead of me and has allowed me to build relationships with my peers I had not experienced before. Now, in my senior year, I am able to look back at every step I took that brought me to UCCS. I made the right decision.”
