International Admissions

You Are Welcome Here

International students, you are welcome here! The University of Colorado Colorado Springs values the talent, culture and contributions shared by our international faculty and students. With more than 60 countries represented at UCCS, the world comes to Colorado Springs through UCCS, providing our resident students a truly international experience at home. It is an experience we believe will last students a lifetime in our increasingly global society.

Am I an International Applicant?

If you are not a US citizen or you do not yet hold a US Permanent Resident status, you should apply as an international student. Review the descriptions below and select the one that fits you to review the application steps.

Which application should I fill out?

We invite you to apply to the University of Colorado Colorado Springs! Please define your application type:

International undergraduate applicants are students applying to an undergraduate program for a Bachelor's degree as freshmen or transfer students. International freshman and transfer applicants should fill out the same international application. Please review the admissions requirements here.
International graduate applicants are students who have already completed an undergraduate degree and wish to pursue a higher degree at the master or doctoral level. International graduate applicants should fill out the graduate application. Click here for Graduate Admissions.
International undergraduate applicants who do not meet the UCCS English proficiency requirement can still be admitted after they gain proficiency through our Intensive English Program or UCCS approved partner language training centers*. Undergraduate international students who are seeking conditional admissions should fill out the undergraduate international application.

International applicants who are not seeking a degree from the UCCS but are nominated as exchange students by their home institutions. Contact your international office to determine if an exchange partnership exists between your home institution and the UCCS. Nominated exchange applicants, please visit the International Affairs Office page here for admissions details.
