UCCS Ranked Fifth in Nation in Latest Military Friendly Ranking

In the most recent ranking of large public institutions in the U.S., UCCS prevailed as the fifth most friendly to military-affiliated students. Military Friendly ranked UCCS as outstanding in all categories, including academic policies and compliance, admissions and orientation, culture and commitment, financial aid and assistance, graduation and career, and military support and retention. It's the second straight year UCCS placed among the top 10 nationwide.

A hub for military-affiliated students, the UCCS student body is nearly 20% affiliated, including active duty, family members or veterans. Unique to UCCS, students enjoy access to the McCord-Herbst Student Veteran Center, as well as services offered by the Office of Veteran and Military Affairs. 

"We are so grateful for the service that our military-affiliated students have offered to our country,” Chancellor Venkat Reddy said. “In return, we are committed to their success both in and out of the classroom – from supporting our students academically to providing resources for their mental and physical well-being.”

Military affiliated students participate in class at UCCS.
