Why you should attend?

UCCS demonstrates our commitment to student success by investing in programming and direct support to benefit our veterans, active duty, and military dependents. In 2021 we launched TARGET: Success, which is a new program centered on the personal and professional development of our students throughout their academic journey, integrated a Student Success Coordinator into our staff, and continue to offer multiple free visits to the campus counseling center. In addition to our Student Veteran Center, we support students operationally by providing priority registration, a generous military credit transfer program, a textbook sharing program, early benefits certification, and emergency loan programs.
