The only way I found out about scholarships was through my actual college - I received little to no information from the UCCS Financial Aid office to help me. The website is difficult to navigate and figure out. I got the best results by calling and speaking to someone or going in personally - emails were rarely answered.

There are many scholarship opportunities, but if you recently were accepted into their graduate program, your acceptance letter comes after most, if not all, of these deadlines. However, even if you miss the scholarship deadlines because you are a new graduate student, you may still be eligible for work study or may still be able to receive an on-campus job. Also, you might be eligible to for a fellowship. The university is helpful in notifying out-of-town students about how to apply for residency so that they can receive in-state tuition beginning the following year.

Start your financial aid work as early as you can. If you are not sure you can afford school with all of the help, work the summers, otherwise it will all get too heavy and you will have to stop while you have momentum. But everyone at uccs is very friendly and the campus is not so large that different offices are out of tune with one another, advisors, the student success center and everyone else are all very helpful, so speak up!

The staff is pretty helpful. Dealing with financial aid for anything is often tedious in the first place and students have to be on the ball. I would love for all the financial aid forms to be 'universal', so to speak, that way it's not so time consuming or confusing.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
