11. Does UCCS honor Early Entry into Kindergarten?

UCCS, follows the state mandate for early entry into Kindergarten. If your student will turn five in September your child can not be entered into the lottery. However, if after the lottery takes place and there are seats available in Kindergarten then a parent may inquire about early entry. Early entry is not guaranteed.  It requires testing by a professionally licensed psychologist at the expense of the parent. In addition, the child must score within the 98% of the norms, the child must be interviewed by the school administration for Kindergarten readiness, and then the headmaster of UCCS will determine if entry into the UCCS Kindergarten program is right for that student. Please reference the following state mandate for more information.
