Funding Your Education
UCCS is one of many different higher education institutions in Colorado. But we pride ourselves on offering the most competitive and reasonably priced contribution to your future. UCCS tuition rates continually rank at least $2,500 less than most other in-state universities. We're proud of our distinct programs that feature real-world application and career connections, leading to real return on investment.
It's our mission to help you find financial footing, and we do so in many ways, such as our Chancellor's Award and Peak Award.
- Chancellor’s Award: Colorado residents with a transfer GPA of 3.0 or better are eligible for the automatic Chancellor’s Award ($2,500 per year!).
- Peak Award: Out-of-state residents who are not eligible for the WUE tuition rate and have a transfer GPA of 3.0 or better are eligible for the automatic Peak Award ($6,250 per year!).
Students must be admitted before any financial aid packaging occurs. To get the best aid opportunities, please apply for admission to UCCS early and complete your FAFSA application early.
