Graduate Assistants
The Master of Science Strength & Conditioning program does not offer graduate assistants to incoming students. We do have four GAs with UCCS Athletics. These are competitive placements for our first year students and awarded in the second year of the student's program.

Teaching Assistants
Limited teaching assistant positions are available through the Health Sciences Department. Potential activity courses include: Pilates; Yoga; Kickboxing; Strength Band Training; Zumba; Weightlifting; Hike, Walk, Jog for Fitness; and Boot Camp Toning & Conditioning. Grading teaching positions are also available for some lecture courses. These positions are paid per credit hour taught and do not include tuition remission or stipends. Decisions on these positions are not made until accepted applicants have confirmed that they will attend UCCS.

Community & Campus Partners
