UCCS and the College of Business are proud to be the university of choice for so many active duty and military veterans. Life experience, leadership and teamwork are just a few of the skills that we recognize you bring into the classroom. We also understand that transitioning from a military to civilian career isn't always as seamless as it should be. Our MBA program will help you translate and hone your skills in the private business world and encourage employers to identify and appreciate the life experience you bring.

Support for Veterans

  • Student Veteran Organization

    The SVO is a chapter of the Student Veterans of America, a national coalition of campus veteran support groups focused specifically on improving conditions and support for student veterans. The UCCS SVO provides veterans, military members, and their families with resources, support, and advocacy needed for student success during and after enrollment at UCCS.

  • Campus Veterans Resources

    UCCS is selected by GI Jobs magazine as a military friendly university and as a member of the Got Your Six Education Pillar Pledge. We are dedicated to providing support to our military affiliated students.

  • Off-Campus Resources

    The presence of five military installations in Colorado Springs makes it a great place for veterans and active duty military families to find support. View the PDF below for a list of off-campus resources for veterans.
