Current Student Resources

Resources for Current UCCS Students

Today's students are tomorrow's UCCS alumni. The Alumni & Friends Association is committed to providing resources to current students, as well as preparing graduating seniors for Commencement and life as successful UCCS alum.

Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow

Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT) is a campus organization that seeks to build connections between students and alumni and encourage pride and spirit within the Mountain Lion family.

Legacy Scholarships

There are several scholarships each year available for students who have a legacy connection to UCCS – this can be a parent, sibling, child, grandparent, aunt/uncle, or spouse/partner. These include:

Legacy Cords for Graduates

When a family makes it a tradition to attend UCCS, it's something to celebrate. The Alumni & Friends Association's Mountain Lion Legacy Program honors family members who share the bond of being Mountain Lions by providing free cords for legacy students to wear at Commencement.

Traditions Challenge

The UCCS Mountain Lion Traditions Challenge is your passport to learning about the customs that make being a UCCS Mountain Lion such a unique and rewarding experience.

The Alumni & Friends Association invites students to participate in the Traditions Challenge by taking part in as many as possible signature experiences before graduation. These traditions include activities on campus and in the Colorado Springs area, which can be completed throughout your years at UCCS.

Make a Class Gift

From the moment you enroll as a student at UCCS, your time here is enriched by the philanthropic support of others. Now is your chance to embrace the ethos of giving back by donating towards your class gift.
