Resources for Parents & Families

The transition to university can be difficult for both students and families. At UCCS, we want to support you through the process – from application to orientation to the first term. We provide resources to help students successfully adjust. 

Family Connections

At UCCS, we aim for your success by providing top-quality education with experienced faculty and extensive industry connections. With six colleges across campus, we offer numerous degree options to prepare you for your chosen career.

Family Weekend

Date: October 20-22, 2023

Nestled between the time students are dropped off at the beginning of the semester and when they come home for the holidays, Family Weekend is the perfect reason to come back and visit UCCS to spend time with your student.  From volleyball games to magic shows, this weekend has a little something for everyone. Registration is required for Family Weekend and will include the opportunity for each family to customize their own experience.

Registration for Family Weekend 2023 opens on August 1, 2023.
