Important Financial Aid considerations
Financial Aid Responsibilities
Loans must be paid back
Students enrolling at UCCS are responsible for full payment of tuition and fees. Students should be prepared to pay their bills in full. If that is not possible, do not ignore the debt. Always make sure Student Debt Management (SDM) knows your current address and phone number, even if you don't think you will be returning to campus. Your ability to secure financing in the future may be adversely affected. Call Student Debt Management (719-255-3391) immediately to discuss payment options.
The best way to pay
Set up a manageable, recurring repayment plan through the Bursar’s office to help you avoid interest charges and pay back your loan over time. If you do not pay back your loan over time, you will have a past-due balance, which will affect your ability to be a student, get future financial aid, and even request transcripts. Contact Financial Aid to learn more.
How to pay your bill
You may complete a one-time payment or enroll in a payment plan through the Bursar’s office or online, via your myUCCS Portal account. Enrolling in a payment plan requires a $40 fee for every enrollment. Students must re-enroll in a payment plan every semester. Accepted payment methods include an “e-check” Automatic Bank Payment (ACH), credit card, and debit card. Find more information on the Bursar website or contact the office today.

Investing in yourself
The median salary for a UCCS alum just one year after graduating with a Bachelor's degree is greater than $37,700, which is higher than the median salary among all Colorado institutions. That median salary only grows over time. After 10 years, the median salary for UCCS graduates with a Bachelor's degree is greater than $58,700.
