What Students Are Saying

3.46 Average Rating
uccs is a very excellent school in terms of learning effectively and critically. the class sizes are small, and you get personal attention with the teachers. the curriculum is relevant to your degree, and every class is a learning experience.
Steven from Colorado Springs, CO
They offer classes that will challenge you and an honors programs for fast accelerating learning. It is not like high school, you have to make sure that you turn in your work on time. Most professors won't accept late work. Also make sure that you don't skipped the class because the professor might take attendance that will count towards the grade and if you miss a class, you could miss important information.
Maricela from Aurora, CO
This mostly depends on the major you take and your aptitude for such. Science and engineering folk will have challenging but meaningful work-- I don't know about everyone else, though. My humanities classes were serious, though-- few people miss class here.
Georgette from Pueblo, CO
Depending on your major, this can vary greatly. For my major, I give it 5 stars because Mechanical Engineering is a difficult field of study but the professors here do a superb job at teaching these classes!
