Online Degrees

Experience the quality and innovation of UCCS at a distance. UCCS offers undergraduate degree programs, master’s degree programs, and doctorate degree program. All online degree programs allow students to study from anywhere.

Online Certificates

Multiple graduate level certificates are available for professional development. Many of the certificate courses can also be applied toward a degree program.

Weekend University

Weekend University is a condensed 10-week format course option on Saturdays. All Weekend University courses have a special “W” section number that makes them easy to identify. All Weekend University courses count toward students’ full-time credit load and financial aid eligibility.

CU Succeed, CU Succeed Platinum, and Project Lead The Way (PLTW)

The CU Succeed program is a unique partnership that exists between UCCS and Colorado high schools that gives high school students the opportunity to earn college credits prior to graduating from high school. This is a concurrent credit program which allows high school students to begin achieving their education goals.

Teacher Education

In cooperation with our education partners, OAO offers professional development courses for K-12 teachers. Online graduate degrees are also available to teachers to enhance their education background and experience.

Project Lead The Way (PLTW)

UCCS is the Colorado Affiliate University for Project Lead the Way (PLTW), a national program forming partnerships among public schools, higher education institutions and the private sector in order to encourage students to expand upon their knowledge in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).  UCCS provides quality PLTW summer training for elementary school, middle school, and high school teachers, ongoing training, and networking opportunities throughout the school year. The campus also provides college biology and engineering graduate credit opportunities for those middle and high school teachers that participate in summer training, and undergraduate biology and engineering credit opportunities for high school students in PLTW-certified schools.

Listening In

Listening In allows lifelong learners age 55 or older the opportunity to attend regular-session courses on a space-available basis. No academic credit is earned; however, the program provides an opportunity for seasoned adults to share in the vast and varied resources of the University at a minimal cost.

Non-credit Courses: On-campus and Online

Non-credit short courses and executive seminars are held at the UCCS campus and in the community. Check Online and Academic Outreach’s website for a calendar of upcoming courses.
