5 College Freshman

Academics: Although I am only a freshman at UCCS, I am already impressed with the academics on campus. I love the challenge so far!

4 College Senior

Academics: great group of individuals that help make ur way through

5 College Junior

Academics: The academics at UCCS are great. The professors truly care about helping the students to make it through the program. They also keep an appropriate level of work going for their students and help whenever needed. The registration and interviewing process were incredible and made me want to be a part of this program even more.

5 College Junior

Academics: I am studying for a Master's Degree in Clinical Counseling. The program that UCCS offers is the only one of its kind that I have seen here in Colorado. The students are encouraged to grow personally as well as professionally. The professors start working with the students during the first semester to prepare them for internships and job opportunities that will best fit where the student wants to go. The workload is just right for the program and the curriculum is interesting and engaging.

4 College Senior

Academics: The professors are pretty great. They are knowledgeable, helpful, and (usually) fair. There are plenty of options to get further involved in your area of study, too.
