University of Colorado Colorado Springs Reviews
I signed up for 3 classes/9 Credit Hours in the Fall '19 to pursue my BS in Business Administration. UCCS charges $37/Credit Hour more than TA allows, meaning a standard 3 Credit Hour class will cost you $111 out of pocket. In addition to that, UCCS charged over $1,300 in mandatory, non-negotiable fees (not-covered by TA) EACH SEMESTER to attend the classes on campus even if I was 100% not going to be using the services the fees were charging for. It total, to take 3 classes during a single semester at UCCS, I would have had to pay $1,600 out of pocket. Suffice to say, I dropped all classes and disenrolled upon looking at my student balance and talking with the university finance office before the semester began. I highly recommend active duty military relying on TA and not using VA Top-Up to avoid taking classes at UCCS unless you want to pay a ton of money out of pocket.
HORRIBLE school. Stay away. President, chancellor, dean etc have all made cuts for those they know and then the hard working students have to compete with the favored ones even though theres a significant difference in academic performance. I absolutely hate this school and the money theyve taken from me makes me sick. Corrupt leaders. Youre better off at a community college.
I loved UCCS a lot! The classes were engaging and interesting and the teachers were awesome! I believe the best part about the school is that it has small class sizes and the teachers always encourage going to their office hours, which always helped me! At UCCS, their student help centers are amazing as well! I was always able to make an appointment in the same week to go over what I needed to!
The University of Colorado (UCCS) in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado is an amazing school with amazing professors! Though it is a large university, it has a small university feel to it, so it is easy to get to know your professors and classmates. There are many degree programs to choose from at both the undergraduate level, graduate, professional, and PhD. levels. UCCS is very affordable, especially for the quality of education that one receives. I would highly recommend UCCS to anyone searching to continue his/her education.
The Anthropology and Women's and Ethnic Studies degrees are amazing. The professors are well versed in their fields and always available to chat after class and make recommendations for the future. If you are interested ask about Field School opportunities as soon as possible. I was able to participate in a couple and they greatly prepared me for the work I do for a museum today. If you are a minority student of any kind visit Mosaic. They are a great resource and the Student Activities Office has a lot of multi-cultural and minority student organizations to join.
I was a student here for 1 semester and I have decided to go someplace else. Where do I even start having students teach A&P labs? I am not paying to have students teach me. There is a lot of different cultured people here. But to many protest taking place I decided this isn't a school I want to be associated with. When you have students out by the street in the parking lot protesting whatever cause they have for that moment is too much. This is supposed to be an educational institution and this makes learning hard when there are distractions. I am not impressed with the nursing program that they try to sell you on. It does seem they will take anyone as a nursing student here. Overall, maybe because I am a former student at the University of Maryland I was disappointed in this college. Diversity is great! Do not get me wrong, but come on we are grown adults we do not need students protesting every little thing. There most recent protest the Breitbart News editor, M.Y.. Just because you do not like a speaker at a college doesn't mean other people agree with you. So way too much drama at this college! Feels more like high school than a university.
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs offers an excellent accounting degree for students who are wanting an edge in the field. Through my educational experience at UCCS, I was able to develop myself into the professional that I wanted to be and made excellent networking connections while doing so. I would definitely recommend UCCS to anyone who is interested.
I had a great experience at UCCS! Most of my professors were kind and more than willing to help you with anything you needed. I was encouraged to grow and expand my horizons while also meeting new people that worked in my desired field. I even managed to become a TA during my senior year.
It's a good college, the mechanical engineer is focused on aero, aero dynamics is strong at this college, materials is one of the areas that has a lack of knowledge.
UCCS is a really great school. It is in a truly beautiful place and has a TON of great opportunities. You may not get the quintessential "traditional" experience in terms of living on campus and having some huge national sports team to support and lots of raging parties, but if you want to meet some amazing people and learn in a fantastic setting. This is the place to go. Very cutting edge and growing fast.
