International Student Recognition Celebration

ballonsThe Global Engagement Office hosts the International Student & Scholar Recognition Celebration each fall and spring semester. It is a formal ceremony in honor of UCCS graduating international students and our departing exchange students and scholars. Please note that this is not the official UCCS graduation ceremony. The event will be followed by a reception in honor of our students and scholars. The reception is open to all international students and scholars even though the International Student Recognition is for a select group of students.
