Welcome to Financial Aid

Fueling and Funding Success

Earning a college degree doesn't have to mean graduating with a mountain of debt. It's our mission to assist you in finding a financial aid package that makes it possible to obtain a degree. Each year, UCCS awards more than $100 million in financial aid to students, and we'll do our best to walk you through exploring aid options, applying for scholarships and understanding your total college bill.
