Academics Rating

UCCS has fairly small class sizes. This is good and bad. You get more attention, explanations, discussions, etc. in small classes, which should help you to better understand the material. You also tend to make more friends. However, I really like to have at least one large class every semester, because they seem easier/less work to me: the professor will not want to grade 250 essays, so the only grading will be based on test scores and a few extra-credits! Fortunately, UCCS has large classes and (predominantly) small ones of 20 or so, too.

Academics Rating

I don't know much on the academics, proffessors, or the workloads to really comment on it accurately. i can that they do have the majors in which i want to go into.
