Veteran & Military Affairs

Welcome to UCCS!  We're glad you made the decision to continue your education with us.  We are here to help!  UCCS is proud to have consistently received the "Gold" designation as a Military Friendly University, where over 24% of our students are veterans, active duty, Reservists, National Guard, or family members.

Student Veteran Center at UCCS

The McCord-Herbst Student Veteran Center on campus is open to all military-affiliated students. The Center offers a space for students with resources, like computers and study areas, and a place to lounge and connect with others.

In addition, students can access various services, such as success coaching, math tutoring, the Student Veteran Organization, and how to utilize your VA Education Benefits.

Active Duty Tuition Assistance Grant

UCCS is proud to announce the Active Duty Tuition Assistance Grant, beginning in Fall 2023. Active-duty undergraduate students using military tuition assistance (TA) are eligible for a grant that covers tuition, fees, and required materials for courses eligible for TA.
