Explore Academic Resources
Whether you're just starting your higher education career or getting ready to graduate, UCCS wants you to succeed. Each year, our teams across campus assist thousands of students.
From orientation through graduation, students work with an assigned academic advisor successfully navigate through their academic journey.
Advisors work with students to ensure they meet their degree requirements and achieve their educational goals, while also helping them develop strategies for success and connecting them with resources available on campus.
UCCS students have access to career advising and resources through the T. Rowe Price Career & Innovation Center, located in the University Center.
Undecided students can learn about different majors available to them, while those considering a career change can access resources to explore opportunities in different fields.
The Career Center also offers help in creating strong resumes and cover letters, as well as refining interview skills for job-seeking students.
UCCS is an equitable and inclusive campus. We make sure that all our students can find reasonable accommodations for their needs.
Our staff and faculty will support students with disabilities to ensure that they become confident, self-advocating, and independent adults. We also believe in advancing awareness and education within our campus community.
UCCS provides students with access to four Excel Centers for Academic Excellence. Different types of tutoring and academic support are available at each center. The centers focus on the following:
Student & Family Connections
SFC helps freshmen and transfer students with their academic and personal goals. We’ll even help you connect with your campus community to make you feel more at home.
Veteran & Military Affairs
We offer direct assistance to military veterans and military-connected students transitioning to academic careers through our Office of Veteran and Military Student Affairs (OVMSA) located in the McCord-Herbst Student Veteran Center.
OVMSA provides financial, social, and academic support to aid the transition process and also serves as a social and study area for veteran students.
The UCCS Gallogly Recreation & Wellness Center provides health and mental services to all actively enrolled students. No medical insurance is required to take advantage of the center. Our goal is to make our students healthy – both inside and outside.
With the help of our professional staff and student volunteers, we coordinate a number of inclusive and socially-aware cross-departmental events, workshops, presentations, and one-on-one conversations on a variety of topics.
Kraemer Family Library
The Kraemer Family Library’s mission is to efficiently serve students with all their informational needs. Our goal is to ensure the success of every student.
We have a limitless number of resources, including quiet study areas, group rooms, and more. All types of programs and workshops are also offered throughout the year.
