Next Steps After Admissions to the UCCS College of Business:

    As an exchange student, you will be issued a DS-2019 in your admission packet. This document will allow you to obtain a J-1 visa for the duration of your stay in the United States. Please reference the U.S. Department of State Exchange Visitor page for the most up-to-date information on J-1 visa application requirements.

  • Arrival to Colorado Springs

    The UCCS International Buddy Program provides complimentary pick-up service to new arriving exchange students. You will be contacted by your iBuddy with more details.

  • UCCS Student ID Number and Email

    All international exchange students will be issued a UCCS student ID number and email which will be used frequently while studying at UCCS. Details (student ID number and how to claim your email account) will be provided in your acceptance letter.
