Career and Education Benefits



Welcome to the UCCS Alumni & Friends Association hub for career and education services. We're committed to offering career programming to not just alumni, but also future alums in the form of current students. While our offerings are expanding as our university grows, we presently partner in the following ways to benefit our current and future alumni. 

  • UCCS Graduate School and Continuing Education
    • Our Graduate School welcomes back UCCS Alumni with open arms. Our counselors are ready to answer your questions about a degree path that may suit your career goals. 
    • UCCS Alumni are welcome to consider auditing a course for no credit to determine if a degree path is right for them. 
  • T. Rowe Price Career and Innovation Center and Alumni Career Services
    • In partnership with the T. Rowe Price Career and Innovation Center, our alumni are exposed to valuable Career Webinars — both live and on-demand.
    • UCCS Alumni also enjoy the other tools we have to offer, including career exposure, personal branding advice and more.

"It's shocking to look at where you were and where you are, and realize you made it to your ultimate goal. I owe all of that to UCCS, the CU system, to athletics, to the community and to hard work."
