Online Students

As a UCCS student you have the opportunity to enroll in online courses that may offer you more flexible means to obtaining your education.

Eligibility for Online Students

All online courses and programs are eligible for financial aid if the student meets the following eligibility requirements:

  • Be admitted to and maintain enrollment as a degree or gainful employment certificate seeking student. (To determine your admission status, please contact your college)
  • Be enrolled at least half time.
  • Be enrolled in courses that will apply to your degree plan.

If you are enrolled in online courses, but do not meet the criteria listed above, you are not eligible for financial aid, however you may be eligible for a private educational loan.
