Gold & Silver Graduates

In 2012, UCCS began a new Commencement tradition for two very special groups of alumni – our Golden and Silver Graduates.

These alumni graduated 50 and 25 years ago, respectively, and helped build the foundation of what our university has become today. We are honored to recognize these alumni in our Commencement ceremonies – Golden Graduates are recognized at the Spring ceremonies, and Silver Graduates are recognized during the Summer/Fall ceremony.

We also enjoy honoring graduates of the Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences who, who, prior to 1997, attended the city-owned Beth-El College of Nursing. Beth-El was founded in 1904, and in 1997, a Colorado Springs community referendum merged Beth-El with UCCS.
