The University of Colorado Colorado Springs provides veteran and military students the option of having their military transcripts reviewed for academic credit and/or course waiver. The UCCS Military Transfer Credit policy creates a comprehensive transfer credit package for veteran and military students who have served in the United States Marine Corps, Army, Air Force, Navy or Coast Guard.
** For students seeking to enter professional colleges (i.e. Nursing, Engineering, Business), waiver of elective requirements may limit the options for electives during your program. This can be an issue for students who need to keep a full time course load for GI Bill usage. Each student is encouraged to talk with your academic advisor to learn more about this.
Process for having your military transcripts reviewed (new students)
All incoming or first term students will need to:
1. Submit your military transcripts to the Admissions and Records Office at UCCS. This can be done through online requests at the sites linked below.
2. Submit the request form on this site. Once you have submitted your request for review and have requested your military transcripts be sent to UCCS, a university representative will review your credits and award credits according to the guidelines of the policy. After the review is complete your military credits will appear in your DARS account through the UCCS portal. Please allow for 30 days for the review process to be completed.
