General Information
THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT DENVER: AN URBAN UNIVERSITY CAMPUS
The University of Colorado at Denver (UCD) is one of four campuses of the University of Colorado. The urban, nonresidential campus is located in downtown Denver, and is easily accessible to commuters. It is close to major business and government offices in downtown Denver, as well as to civic and cultural centers. UCD is one of the largest state-supported institutions of higher education in Colorado, with an average of 11,000 students enrolled during a semester. Many students work full time or part time while pursuing degrees because of the availability of part-time education.
The UCD Administration Building is located at 1100 Fourteenth Street, although several of the administrative offices are located at 1250 14th Street, one block north. UCD shares library, laboratory, classroom, and recreation facilities with the Denver Auraria Community College and Metropolitan State College on the Auraria Higher Education Center campus.
Academic Programs
UCD is committed to meeting the needs of the metropolitan Denver community. Academic, public service, and research activities are geared to the demands of the urban population and environment. Both traditional and uniquely urban fields of study are available. Students enrolled at UCD can earn undergraduate degrees in some 36 fields and graduate degrees in some 53 fields. The colleges and schools at UCD are:
College of Business and Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration
College of Design and Planning
School of Education
College of Engineering and Applied Science
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
College of Music
Graduate School
Graduate School of Public Affairs
The undergraduate colleges admit freshmen and offer programs leading to the baccalaureate degree in the arts, sciences, humanities, business, engineering, and music. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences also provides preprofessional training in the fields of education, law, journalism, and the health sciences (i.e., pre-medical, dental, nursing, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine). The School of Education offers programs leading to teacher certification.
The Graduate School offers master’s programs in the arts, sciences, humanities, engineering, business, education, and music to students with baccalaureate degrees. At the present time Ph.D. programs are coordinated through the corresponding Boulder campus department. However, in a number of disciplines most or all course work for the Ph.D. can be completed at Denver and the research adviser may be a member of the UCD faculty. The College of Design and Planning, the Graduate School of Business Administration, and the Graduate School of Public Affairs provide programs leading to the master’s degree in their specialized areas. The Graduate School of Public Affairs also offers a doctorate in public administration.
For complete bachelor’s and master’s degree programs offered by UCD, see the Degree Programs at a Glance chart at the beginning of this bulletin.
The college and school sections of this bulletin describe specific policies on requirements for graduation, course requirements for various majors, course load policies, and similar information. Course offerings appear in a separate section of this bulletin.
Students
Highly motivated people from all walks of life make up UCD’s student body. The diversity of backgrounds, interests, occupations, and ages stimulates a unique learning experience for the men and women enrolled at UCD. Students range in age from 16 to 70. Approximately two-thirds of the students hold full-time jobs and 65 percent are enrolled at the upper division or graduate levels. In order to give students maximum flexibility in planning both educational and employment goals, more than half of the courses are offered during the evening hours. Students may begin studies in most areas at the beginning of the fall or spring semester, or the summer term.
University of Colorado System
UCD, as one of four campuses of the University of Colorado, has a special role and mission in Colorado higher education. The University was founded in Boulder in 1876, and the University of Colorado at Boulder now serves over 20,000 students enrolled in undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs. The Health Sciences Center in Denver provides education and training to medical, dental, nursing, and allied health personnel. The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs serves more than 5,500 students in the Pikes Peak region, offering undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs. UCD’s


2 / University of Colorado at Denver
special role within the University system is to provide urban-oriented educational programs for students in the Denver metropolitan area. Emphasis is on professional and pre-professional training.
UCD students have access to the library resources of all campuses and cultural events sponsored within the University system.
The official transcript of any student who first enrolled in the spring semester 1978 or afterwards and who graduates from an undergraduate program operated solely by UCD will indicate that the degree was conferred at Denver.
Faculty and Accreditation
More than 280 highly qualified faculty members teach full time at UCD; 82 percent have doctoral degrees. The faculty is alert to the challenges of the urban environment and responsive to the needs of the commuter student. UCD is accredited by or holds membership in the following organizations:
ACCREDITATION
North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools
Accrediting Commission on Education for Health Services Administration
American Society of Landscape Architects Initial Two-Year Accreditation
The College of Design and Planning is recognized by the American Planning Association National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education

Auraria Higher Education Center
The Auraria Higher Education Center is the site for the University of Colorado at Denver, Metropolitan State College, and the Denver Auraria Community College. The three institutions share library, classroom, and related facilities on the Auraria campus, a 171-acre site in downtown Denver. Certain courses and programs are cooperatively offered.
On the Auraria campus are administrative and classroom buildings, the Auraria Library, the student center, book center, child care and development centers, physical education facilities, science building, and service buildings.
The new buildings share the campus with reminders of Denver’s past—historic Ninth Street Park, restored church buildings, and the Tivoli brewery built in 1882.
Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity
The University of Colorado at Denver adheres to a policy of equal opportunity in education and in employment.
In pursuit of this policy, no UCD department, unit, discipline, or employee shall discriminate against an individual or group on the basis of race, sex, creed, color, age, national origin, or individual handicap. This policy applies to all areas of the University affecting present and prospective students or employees.
The institution’s educational programs, activities, and services, offered to students and/or employees are administered on a nondiscriminatory basis subject to the provisions of Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
A UCD Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Program has been established to implement this policy. For information about these provisions on equity, discrimination, or fairness, consult the Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity Director at UCD.
Research and Public Service
All academic programs, public service, and research activities at UCD are oriented toward the needs of the urban population and environment, and to concerns and issues of importance to Colorado and the region. Activities in research and public service encompass both traditional and nontraditional fields of study, but predominately focus on issues that are related to Colorado needs.
During 1982-83, UCD faculty received 65 awards totaling $2.4 million for research and public service programs. These dollars, from public and private souorces, support research and public service work which is of direct benefit to the State of Colorado. Such activities have brought UCD into close working relationships with representatives of city, county, and state government units, as well as many individual citizens.
Current research activity covers such diverse areas as geotechnical engineering, environmental sciences, bilingual teacher training, community development and design, cooperative education programs, minority education projects, and seminars for executives in state and local government.
In engineering, UCD faculty are looking at soil behavior as it relates to earthquakes, winds, and oceanic activity. They also are contributing to design and safety plans in mine structures for oil shale processing and to construction techniques which would lengthen the life and serviceability of highways.
UCD’s Mathematics Clinics investigate contemporary societal issues through the application of mathematical concepts to specific problems. Mathematics students and professors, for example, developed a mathematical analysis and computerized system for portfolio analyses for a Denver

bank. Another project involved a mathematical analysis of the economic impact of state and federal policies.
The Center for Environmental Sciences has grown rapidly since 1970 to include a cluster of environmental projects related to trace elements in oil shale, pollution of ground-water by uranium tailings, and ideas for renovating waste-water. The work in this area has a direct impact on Colorado development issues and is conducted in close communication with both industry and various public interest groups in order to consider environmental issues in a complete context.
The National Hispanic Field Service Program strives to recruit Hispanic students into graduate public affairs programs and guide them into public management careers that will prepare them for leadership roles in communities with significant Hispanic populations.
One of UCD’s most significant public service projects is the Center for Community Development and Design. The center provides design and planning assistance to local governments throughout Colorado and in Denver. Projects have included neighborhood renovation, main street redevelopment, economic development strategies, recreational plans, and growth impact studies. The communities and neighborhoods, students, and faculty work together to help community leaders plan for solutions and ways to fund needed projects. As a result, the community receives the guidance it needs, and UCD’s academic programs are enhanced by involvement in practical projects.

It is expected that all students will have had previous experience in an applied music area. Two years of piano training are recommended.
The College of Music requires an audition of all entering freshmen and undergraduate transfer students. In lieu of the personal audition, applicants may substitute tape recordings (about 10 minutes in length) with a statement of excellence by a qualified teacher. Interested students should write to the College of Music, UCD, for audition information and applications.
2. All Applicants. All applicants who meet the above requirements are classified in two ways for admission purposes:
a. Preferred consideration is given to applicants who rank in the upper half of their high school graduating class and have a composite score of 23 or higher on the American College Test (ACT) or a combined score of 1000 or higher on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). However, engineering applicants are expected to have a strong mathematics and science background, somewhat higher scores on the mathematics portion of the ACT or SAT, and higher class rank. Business students are expected to have a strong mathematics background, higher class rank and higher test scores. Music applicants must also successfully pass a music audition.
b. Applicants who rank in the lower half of their high school graduating class, and/or have combined SAT scores below 1000 or a composite ACT score below 23, and/or do not have 15 units of acceptable high school credit are reviewed on an individual basis.
How to Apply
1. Students should obtain an Application for Undergraduate Admission from their Colorado high school counselor or the UCD Office of Admissions and Records.
2. The application must be completed in full and sent to the Office of Admissions and Records. A $20 (subject to change) nonrefundable application fee must accompany the application. An applicant who is granted admission, but who is unable to enroll for the term applied for, will have the $20 fee valid for 12 months, provided the
applicant informs Admissions and Records that he or she intends to enroll for a later term.
3. Students are required to have their high school send an official* 2 transcript of their high school grades, including class rank, to the Office of Admissions and Records.
4. Students also are required to take either the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and request that test scores be sent to UCD (ACT code 0533 or SAT code R-4875). High school students may obtain information from their counselors regarding when and where tests are given. Applicants who took one of these tests earlier and did not designate UCD to receive scores must request the testing agency to send scores to UCD. This is done by completing a Request for Additional Score Report available at test centers or from the offices listed below.

Important Note: Applicants who do not meet the above grade-point average or credit hour requirements will still be considered for admission, but on an individual basis.
The primary factors used when considering students individually are (1) the academic program to which admission is desired; (2) the quality of prior academic work; (3) age, maturity, and noncollegiate achievements; and (4) time elapsed since last attendance at previous colleges.
How to Apply
1. The student should obtain a transfer application from the UCD Office of Admissions and Records.
2. The application form must be completed and returned to the Office of Admissions and Records with the required $201 nonrefundable application fee.
3. The student is required to have two official2 transcripts sent to the Office of Admissions and Records from each collegiate institution attended. If a student is currently enrolled, a transcript listing all courses except those taken in the final term should be sent. Another transcript must be submitted after completion of the final term. (Transcripts from foreign institutions must be presented in the original language and accompanied by a certified literal English translation.)
Liberals arts and music applicants with less than 12 semester hours (18 quarter hours) of college work completed must also submit a high school transcript and ACT or SAT test scores. Business applicants with less than 45 semester hours and engineering applicants with less than 24 semester hours must also submit high school transcripts and ACT/SAT scores.
Applicants to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences should be aware that they may be able to receive credit for foreign language taken during the high school years provided they furnish an official2 high school transcript to the dean’s office. Further information may be obtained from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
All credentials presented for admission become the property of the University of Colorado and must remain on file.
Transfer of College-Level Credit
The Office of Admissions and Records and the appropriate academic unit will determine which courses taken at another institution can be applied to a degree program at UCD after all official transcripts have been received and the applicant has been admitted as a degree student. In general, transfer credit will be accepted insofar as it meets the degree, grade, and residence requirements at UCD.
College-level credit may be transferred to the University if it was earned at a college or university of recognized standing, by advanced placement examinations, or in military service or schooling as recommended by the Commission on Accreditation of Service Experiences of the American Council on Education; if a grade of C or higher was attained; and if the credit is for courses appropriate to the degree sought at this institution. Courses taken Pass/Fail are transferred when a grade of C or higher is required to pass.
The University may accept up to 72 semester credits (108 quarter hours) of work from a two-year institution toward the baccalaureate degree requirements and may accept up to 112 semester credits (153 quarter hours) from a four-year college or university. No credit is allowed for vocational/technical, remedial, or religious/doctrinal work. A maximum of 60 semester credits of extension and correspondence work (not to include more than 30 semester credits of correspondence) may be allowed if the above conditions are met.
The College of Business and Administration generally limits transfer credit for business courses taken at the lower division level. All courses in the area of emphasis must be taken at the University of Colorado unless written approval is obtained from the division head. A maximum of 60 semester hours (90 quarter hours) of work from a two-year institution and 9 semester hours of business courses taken through correspondence study may be applied toward baccalaureate degree requirements. All correspondence courses are evaluated to determine their acceptability, and required business courses and those in the area of emphasis may not be taken through correspondence.
The College of Music requires that 56 of the hours needed for graduation be completed in residence. This total may be reduced by the faculty because of excellent work done at UCD and because of high scholarship exhibited at previous institutions attended. In no case shall the minimum be fewer than 40 hours distributed over three semesters.
Readmission Requirements for Former CU Students
UCD students who have not registered and attended class at UCD or any other college or university for one year or longer are former students and must formally apply for readmission. Former student application forms are available at the Office of Admissions and Records.

^Official transcripts are those sent by the issuing institution directly to the Office of Admissions at UCD. Hand-carried copies are not official.


6 / University of Colorado at Denver
Former students who attended another college or university since last attending the University of Colorado must apply as transfer students and meet the transfer student application deadlines. This requires payment of the $20* application fee and submission of official transcripts from all previously attended colleges and universities. Transcripts should be sent to UCD, Admissions Processing, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.
Students who last attended UCD less than one year ago but attended another college or university during the interim are required to pay a $20 transfer application fee. Transcripts must be requested by the student and sent by the registrar of the other institution(s) to UCD, Evaluation Processing, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.
Students who last attended CU more than three years ago will need to request a copy of their transcripts from the University of Colorado at Boulder (where all permanent records of the University, including UCD, are maintained). The transcript must be sent to UCD Admissions Processing.
International Students
International students are those students who require an “1-20” for attendance at UCD. All international students, in addition to the requirements for domestic students, must comply with the requirements outlined in this section. All international student applicants must (a) have earned a cumulative grade-point average of 2.75 or higher on all college work attempted, and (b) be eligible for readmission at all collegiate institutions previously attended. Further, international student applicants who are citizens of non-English speaking nations also must complete at least one full academic year (36 quarter hours or 24 semester hours) at another accredited collegiate institution located within the U.S. These studies must include at least 6 semester hours of English composition. English courses for foreign students or ESL programs are not acceptable. TOEFL scores will be required when educational records do not indicate adequate proficiency in the English language. TOEFL scores must be 500 or higher to be accepted as proof of English language proficiency.
Applicants for the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences who have TOEFL scores of 525 or higher and who have outstanding academic records may be considered for admission without the above requirements of one full academic year at another accredited institution located within the U.S. However, those students who have never attended college in the U.S. or another country will be required to take the ACT or SAT college entrance examinations. A detailed list of credentials and documents that are required to support the application for admission for international students is contained in the application package for international applicants. International student applicants should not use the standard undergraduate application form, but should use only the International Student Application for Undergraduate Admission which is provided by the Office of Admissions.
Graduate. International students who desire graduate study at UCD must possess the equivalent of an American baccalaureate (undergraduate) degree and fulfill other requirements as designated by the graduate program to
which they are applying. Applications can be obtained from the individual graduate schools. Application and credentials should be presented to the individual graduate school 6 months prior to the term for which the student is applying.
UCD Intrauniversity Transfer or Change of Campus
UCD students may change colleges or schools within UCD provided they are accepted by the college or school to which they wish to transfer. UCD Intrauniversity Transfer Forms may be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Records. Students should observe application deadlines indicated in the current Schedule of Courses. Decisions on intrauniversity transfers are made by the college or school to which the student wishes to transfer.
UCD students may change campuses by applying directly to the Admissions Office of the University of Colorado campus to which they wish to transfer. Change of Campus applications and deadline information also must be obtained from the campus to which the student is applying.
Music students must pass an audition for the College of Music.

General Information / 7
GRADUATE ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS AND APPLICATION DEADLINES
Admission requirements and application deadlines vary according to the individual graduate program. The Graduate School has general admission requirements which are supplemented by specific requirements of the major departments of graduate study (e.g., electrical engineering, education, English, etc.). Applicants in the fields of education, engineering, and the arts, sciences, and humanities should consult the general information section of the Graduate School portion of this bulletin as well as the following sections dealing with requirements and deadlines for specific programs. Applicants in the fields of business administration, public affairs, and design and planning should refer to the sections of this bulletin on the Graduate School of Business Administration, the Graduate School of Public Affairs, and the College of Design and Planning.
High School Concurrent Enrollment
High school juniors and seniors with proven academic abilities may be admitted to UCD with special approval for one term only. Credit for courses taken may subsequently be applied toward a University degree program. For more information and application instructions, contact the UCD Office of Admissions and Records (303-629-2660).
Admission of Non-degree (Special) Students
All correspondence and questions regarding admission as a special student should be directed to the UCD Office of Admissions and Records.
Persons desiring admission as special students for the purpose of teacher certification should contact the School of Education, 629-2717.
REQUIREMENTS FOR SPECIAL (NONDEGREE) STUDENT ADMISSION
Undergraduate Level
Persons who want to take University courses but do not plan to work toward a University of Colorado degree may be admitted as special students. Courses taken as a special student are credited and can be used for transfer to other institutions or for professional improvement. Persons who do not have an undergraduate degree are encouraged to apply to an undergraduate degree program rather than apply as special students. UCD will enroll persons without an undergraduate degree as special students for 12 semester hours, after which the student must apply to a regular degree program. Persons with a baccalaureate degree who seek teacher certification or renewal of certification may be admitted as special students if they meet the requirements of the School of Education. Special students must maintain a grade-point average of 2.0 at UCD.
Graduate Level
Students who are not accepted to specific degree programs may enroll for course work as special non-degree students. Several types of students make use of the special student category. Among these are students who have attained whatever degree or credential status they feel is desirable,
but who wish to take additional course work for professional or personal improvement; students who, for whatever reason (weak undergraduate background, change of discipline, or length of time since previous formal course work), feel the need to make up deficiencies before entering a degree program; and students who have not decided about entering a specific degree program. Such students should be aware that, generally, only limited course credits taken as a special student may be applied toward a degree program. Also, a 2.0 minimum grade-point average must be maintained to permit continuing registration as a special student.
HOW TO APPLY FOR SPECIAL STUDENT ADMISSION
To apply for admission as a special student, obtain a Special Student Application Form from the Office of Admissions and Records. Return the completed application by the deadline for the term desired. A $5 nonrefundable application fee is required. No additional credentials are required. Applicants who seek teacher certification or renewal of teacher certification must apply separately to the School of Education and submit the required credentials.
Special students are advised that registration for courses is on a space available basis.
CHANGING STATUS FROM SPECIAL TO DEGREE STUDENT
Special students may apply for admission to an undergraduate degree program by following the instructions outlined in the Special to Degree procedures available from the Office of Admissions and Records. Academic credentials (i.e., transcripts and/or test scores) and a $20 nonrefundable application fee also must be submitted. Special students who are accepted as undergraduate degree students may generally transfer a limited number of semester credit hours for courses taken as a special student to an undergraduate degree program, with approval of the dean. Special students should consult with the college to which they are applying during the first semester of their enrollment for the maximum number of semester credit hours acceptable toward a degree program as a special student. (Students enrolled as special students prior to the fall semester of 1970 are subject to the policies in effect between January of 1969 and August of 1970.)
Special students may apply for admission to a graduate degree program by completing the application required by the particular program. The graduate dean, upon recommendation by the department, may accept up to 8 semester hours of credit toward the requirements for a master’s degree for courses taken as a special student at the University or at another recognized graduate school, or some combination thereof. The department may recommend acceptance of additional credit for courses taken as a special student during the semester the student has applied for admission to the desired degree program.

Tentative Admission. Students who are admitted pending receipt of additional documents will be permitted one term to submit the documents. Registration for subsequent terms will be denied when documents have not been received.
II. TUITION AND FEES
Tuition and Fees
All tuition and fee charges are established by the Board of Regents, the governing body of the University of Colorado, in accordance with legislation enacted annually (usually in the spring) by the Colorado General Assembly. The Regents reserve the right to change tuition and fee rates at any time. A tuition schedule is published prior to registration for each term, and students should contact the Office of Admissions and Records for further information on the tuition and fee charges for a particular term. The following rates are for the 1983-84 academic year and are provided to assist prospective students in anticipating cost.
OTHER FEES
1. Student activity fee (mandatory for all students):
Fall semester 1983 ..................$23.00*

sound recording and reinforcement, and electronic music must pay this fee. No student is charged more than one $24 fee.
Reinstatement fee....................$25
A student who is disenrolled for nonpayment must pay the original balance, interest, and the reinstatement fee before registering for classes again.
PAYMENT OF TUITION AND FEES
All tuition and fees (except application fee) are assessed and payable when the student registers for the term, according to guidelines in the current Schedule of Courses. Arrangements may be made through the Finance Office at the time of registration to defer payment of part of the charges. Specific information on deferred payment is included in the Schedule of Courses published before each semester or summer term.
Students who register for courses are liable for payment of tuition and fees even though they may drop out of school. Refund policies for students who withdraw from the University are included in the Schedule of Courses. A student with financial obligations to the University will not be permitted to register for any subsequent term, to be graduated, or to be listed among those receiving a degree or special certificate. The only exception to this regulation involves students with loans and other types of indebtedness which are payable after graduation.
Personal checks are accepted for any University obligation. Any student who pays with a check which is not acceptable to the bank may be disenrolled and the original financial obligation still will exist. A service charge of $15 will be added for returned checks.
AUDIT
To qualify as an auditor for fall or spring semester, a student must be 21 years of age or older. Auditors may not be registered for any other University of Colorado courses during the time they are auditing and are not eligible to audit courses if they are under suspension from the University. The Records Office does not keep any record of courses audited; therefore, credit for these courses cannot be established. Auditors may attend as many courses as they wish (except those courses with laboratories or where equipment is used), provided they have received permission from each instructor. Auditor’s cards are issued after classes begin. This card should be presented to the instructor when requesting permission to attend a class.
There is no auditor status in summer. Auditors, whether resident or nonresident, pay resident tuition for the audited courses during the fall or spring semester for class instruction and library privileges only. Auditors do not receive student parking privileges.
Residency Classification for Tuition Purposes
Tuition classification is governed by CRS 23-7-101, et. seq. (1973) as amended.1 Institutions of higher education are bound to the provisions of this statute and are not free to make exceptions to the rules set forth.
The statute provides that an in-state student is one
who has been a legal domiciliary of Colorado for one year or more immediately preceding the beginning of the term for which the in-state classification is sought. Persons over 22 years of age or who are emancipated establish their own legal domicile. Those who are under 22 years of age and unemancipated assume the domicile of their parent or court appointed legal guardian. An unemancipated minor’s parent must, therefore, have a legal domicile in Colorado for one year or more before the minor may be classified as an in-state student for tuition purposes.
Domicile is established when one has a permanent place of habitation in Colorado and the intention of making Colorado one’s true, fixed, and permanent home and place of habitation. The tuition statute places the burden of establishing a Colorado domicile on the person seeking to establish domicile. The question of intent is one of documentable fact and needs to be manifest by substantial connections with the state sufficient to evidence such intent. Legal domicile in Colorado begins the day subsequent connections with Colorado are made sufficient to evidence one’s intent. The most common ties with the state are (1) change of driver’s license to Colorado; (2) change of automobile registration to Colorado; (3) Colorado voter registration; (4) permanent employment in Colorado; (5) and most importantly, payment of state income taxes as a resident by one whose income is sufficient to be taxed. Caution: payment or filing of back taxes in no way serves to establish a legal domicile retroactive to the time filed.
Military personnel should also:
1. Pay the ownership tax on Colorado license plates. They should not take the military waiver on the ownership tax. This waiver requires an affidavit of nonresidence in Colorado.
2. Change their state of legal residence for tax purposes to Colorado immediately upon forming intent to make Colorado their legal domicile.
In order to qualify for in-state tuition for a given term, the 12-month waiting period (which begins when the legal domicile is established) must be over by the first day of classes for the term in question. If one’s 12-month waiting period expires during a semester, in-state tuition cannot be granted until the next semester.
Once the student’s status is established, it remains unchanged unless satisfactory information to the contrary is presented. A student who, due to subsequent events, becomes eligible for a change in classification from resident to nonresident or vice versa must inform the Office of Admissions and Records within 15 days after such a change occurs. An adult student or emancipated minor who moves outside of Colorado must send written notification to the Office of Admissions and Records within 15 days of the change.
Once the student is classified as out-of-state for tuition purposes, it is necessary to petition the Office of Admissions and Records for a change in classification. It is preferable to submit petitions 30 days prior to the term for which students wish to be classified in-state so that their classification will be determined prior to registration and

payment of fees. Late petitions will not be considered until the next semester.
III. FINANCIAL AID AT THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT DENVER
The financial aid program at the University is designed to assist those students who would be unable to attend the University without assistance. While the primary responsibility for meeting the costs of education rests with individual students and their families, financial aid funds are offered to supplement whatever funds students and their families can provide. Since requests generally exceed the availability of funds, students and their families should be aware of procedures and deadlines in order to receive maximum consideration. Questions and requests for forms should be directed to the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment at UCD, Central Classroom Building, Room 105, 629-2886.
Estimated Expenses
Educational expenses at UCD include tuition, fees, and the cost of books and related instructional materials. Students who do not live with their parents must also include the cost of housing and food expenses. All students should consider transportation and personal expenditures (i.e., clothing, entertainment, etc.) in determining their expenses. The Office of Financial Aid establishes standard budgets for different types of students (dependent students living at home with parents, single students living away from home, married students, etc.) to bring about consistency and equity in determining the financial needs of all students. The standard budgets are established in line with parameters set by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education and the U.S. Department of Education.
For the 1983-84 academic year the standard budgets allowed $230 per month living allowance for dependent students living at home, $495 per month for single students not living at home, and $738 per month for married students. An allowance of $130 per month was added per dependent child in the student’s home. The living allowance included amounts for rent, food, utilities, personal expenses, and transportation. The cost of tuition, fees, and medical expenses for the 1983-84 academic year was $985 for a resident student and $3,907 for a nonresident student. Graduate students were assessed $837 as residents and $4,155 as nonresidents. Books and supplies were estimated at $290 for the 1983-84 academic year.
All expenses will increase slightly for the 1984-85 academic year. The State of Colorado and the Board of Regents usually set tuition guidelines and rates during the month of June for the summer and academic year. The standards for living allowances are usually set during the spring semester for the following summer and academic year.
Students who have additional costs above the standard allowances can request a review of their situation by the Financial Aid Committee. The committee must receive documentation of extra expenses and can consider an individual exception to the standard allowances. Examples of these kinds of exceptions are babysitting expenses, and medical, dental, and optical expenses.
Determination of Financial Need and Award
Financial need is defined as the difference between the cost of attendance as defined by the institution (tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, transportation and essential incidental expenses) and total resources available to the student. These resources include a family contribution (summer savings, term earnings, a spouse contribution, and a parental contribution) and awards from agencies outside the University.
Financial need is determined by a national uniform needs analysis system administered by agencies such as the American College Testing Program. This system analyzes income and assets, family size, number of children in post-secondary education, student independence, etc., to determine a reasonable student and/or family contribution.
After the financial need is determined, students are ranked in order of financial need and are aided accordingly until all funds are committed. The financial aid package normally consists of a self-help component (loans and/or employment) and a gift aid component (grants) proportionate to the available funds and to the number of needy students applying. A small portion of Colorado work-study funds is available to interested students who do not document financial need.
How to Apply
Application forms may be obtained by contacting the Office of Financial Aid and Student Employment. Students are asked to complete an institutional application and a needs analysis form. The application includes a checklist of required documents to be submitted.
Parents are expected to contribute toward a student’s educational costs. However, in certain cases students may be considered financially independent of their parents. To be eligible for financial aid as a self-supporting student, a student (1) cannot be claimed as a tax exemption, (2) cannot receive $750 or more, or (3) cannot live at home for more than six weeks for the year aid is received and for the entire preceding calendar year. For example, for a student to receive aid as a self-supporting student during the 1984-85 academic year, the above three criteria must be met for 1983 and 1984.
Note: Requirements for receiving aid as a self-supporting student are subject to change by the federal and state governments.
Self-supporting students must document their status by providing income tax forms or other supporting documents to show sufficient income to be self-supporting during the appropriate period of time. In some cases, additional documentation from parents is required to complete a student’s application. The information provided on the application for financial aid is analyzed according to the uniform needs analysis formula to determine the student’s ability to contribute to his or her educational costs during the academic year.
To be eligible for financial aid, students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents or have a refugee visa. Eligible foreign students are advised to include a photocopy of their visa cards with their applications to facilitate processing. In addition, students who are required to


General Information /II
register for the draft through Selective Service must be registered in order to be eligible for federal financial aid for the 1984-85 academic year. All students must sign a Statement of Selective Service Registration Compliance.
Application and Completion Dates
A student may apply for a Pell Grant or GSL at any time up to March 15, 1985. Other aid is offered on a first-come, first-served basis to needy students who have complete applications on file with the Office of Financial Aid.
Students should have begun the application process by February 1, 1984, and all materials should have been submitted to the Office of Financial Aid and forms processed by ACT and the Pell Grant contractor by April 13, 1984. In every case, the aid offered depends upon the student showing financial need and funds being available.
Special Note: An application for financial aid does not constitute an application for admission to the University. Please contact the UCD Office of Admissions and Records for application forms and procedures. Applicants will not receive financial aid until they are enrolled in a degree program at the University. Special students are not eligible for most financial aid. A special student may apply for a Guaranteed Student Loan for one academic term only.

Graduate Grant. Grants for graduate students are available on a limited basis and will be awarded to students as eligibility and funds allow. Application is made by submitting the University application, the Family Financial Statement, and other required documents.
LOANS
Colorado Guaranteed Student Loan Program. The primary purpose of this program is to make low-interest, longterm loans available to students to help them meet their postsecondary educational expenses. The student must first obtain an application from a participating lending institution or the Colorado Guaranteed Student Loan Program office. Arrangements for repayment must be made within four months after graduation or other termination of at least half-time studies. The student must contact the lender to arrange a repayment schedule. The interest rate under this plan is limited to 8 percent per annum simple interest for first-time borrowers (for previous borrowers, the interest rate will be 7 or 9 percent). In return for its guarantee of a student’s loan, CGSLP requires the student to pay in advance a guarantee fee equal to one percent per annum on the outstanding principal balance to cover the anticipated in-school period plus a nine-month grace period and a 5 percent (of the original principal amount) origination fee.
If a student’s family taxable income for the prior year was $30,000 or less, there is no financial need test and the student is eligible to borrow the loan. If the student’s family income was over $30,000, a financial need test must be done by the Office of Financial Aid. If the student shows financial need, then the student is eligible


12 / University of Colorado at Denver
to borrow the loan. All students should complete the Guaranteed Student Loan need analysis form and submit it along with the regular Guaranteed Student Loan application, the University application, and copies of family tax returns to the Office of Financial Aid.
The maximum an undergraduate student may borrow is $2,500 a year. A graduate or professional student may borrow up to $5,000 a year. The total which may be borrowed for undergraduate study is $12,500. The total for all undergraduate and graduate study is $25,000. The government pays the interest on loans until the repayment period begins, six months after the student ceases to be at least a half-time student. Repayment is usually at the rate of $50 per month and cannot exceed ten years.
National Direct Student Loan. The National Direct Student Loan is a federal loan available to undergraduate and graduate students with financial need. A student may borrow up to (a) $3,000 during the freshman and sophomore years; (b) $6,000 total for undergraduate study; (c) $12,000 total for graduate and undergraduate study. Application for the loan is made by submitting the University Application for Financial Aid, the Family Financial Statement (FFS), and other required documents. Interest and payment on the loan are deferred while the borrower is enrolled on at least a half-time basis at an approved institution of higher education. Interest at 5 percent per year begins to accrue 6 months after the borrower ceases to be at least a half-time student. Repayment is due at that time at the rate of $50 per month plus interest, and cannot exceed 10 years.
Parents Loans to Undergraduate Students/ Auxiliary Loans to Assist Students. This type of loan allows parents to borrow funds for their dependent children, graduate students to borrow for their own educational costs, and undergraduate self-supporting students to borrow for their own costs. Repayment begins 60 days after disbursement at 12% interest. Parents of dependent undergraduate students may borrow up to $3,000 per year. Graduate students may borrow up to $3,000 per year. Independent undergraduates may borrow up to $2,500 per year; however, the PLUS loan, combined with any GSL, cannot exceed the yearly and total GSL undergraduate limits. PLUS loan borrowers must pay an insurance premium of up to 1% of the total loan, collected in advance.
EMPLOYMENT
College Work-Study Program. The College Work-Study Program is designed to provide jobs to undergraduate and graduate students. The program is funded by the federal government and the State of Colorado. Employment is arranged whenever possible in the student’s major area of interest, with job opportunities both on- and off-campus. Awards average up to $2,800 per academic year. For details contact the Office of Student Employment. Application for this aid is made by submitting the University Application for Financial Aid, the Family Financial Statement, and other required documents. Students and employers in the Work-Study Program are expected to assume responsibilities considered normal in an employee-employer relationship.
Part-time Student Employment. The Auraria Student Assistance Center and the UCD Office of Student Employment assist students in obtaining part-time employment other than that based on financial need. Further information and/or application may be obtained from these offices.

Bureau of Indian Affairs. Grants are available to Native American students.
Short-Term Loans. Small, temporary loans are made to students facing financial emergencies. These loans are to be repaid during the semester.
Academic Requirements
Students receiving financial aid must demonstrate that they are maintaining normal progress and are in good standing at the University. Normal academic progress is defined as completing the minimum number of hours stipulated on the notification of financial aid by obtaining a grade of D or better for undergraduates. Graduates must obtain a grade of C or better. Usually students are required to complete 12 credits per semester for undergraduates and 8 credits per semester as graduates. Colorado Scholars, Pell Grant, and Guaranteed Student Loans may be received by students who are enrolled for at least half of these credit minimums. Less than normal progress for two terms results in the loss of future financial aid. Students are expected to maintain grade-point averages as required by the University.
Duration of Aid
Financial aid is offered for one year at a time. Students must reapply for summer and for each academic year, according to the established priority deadlines.
Use of Funds
All financial aid awards are to be used only for immediate educational expenses. These expenses include tuition, fees, books, supplies, room and board, transportation, and essential miscellaneous expenses, such as clothing, medical, etc.
Refunds
The University tuition refund policy is published in the Schedule of Courses for each term. For the fall 1983 semester, the policy for refunds upon complete withdrawal from the University was 100% minus $25 refund if the student withdrew before the term began, 75% of the total bill if the student withdrew by the third day of the third week of classes, and 50% of the total bill if the student withdrew by the fourth week of classes. Students receiving financial aid may be required to return any refund to the University’s financial aid accounts.
Student Rights and Responsibilities
Students have certain rights and responsibilities regarding financial aid and student employment. Students may review

V. ACADEMIC POLICIES AND REGULATIONS
Advanced Standing and Advanced Placement Credit
Undergraduate students may obtain credit for lower-division courses in which they demonstrate proficiency by examination. By passing an examination, the student will be given credit for the course to satisfy lower division requirements and may be eligible to enroll in higher level courses than indicated by the student’s formal academic experience. Credit granted for courses by examination is treated as transfer credit without a grade but does count toward graduation and other requirements for which it is appropriate. There are three types of examinations as described below.
ADVANCED PLACEMENT PROGRAM
The Advanced Placement Program of the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) allows students to take advanced work while in high school and then be examined for credit at the college level. Students who take advanced placement courses and subsequently receive scores of 3, 4, or 51 on the CEEB Advanced Placement Examination are generally given college credit for lower-level courses in which they have demonstrated proficiency and are granted advanced standing in those areas. Students with scores below 31 may be considered for advanced placement by the discipline concerned. For more information contact your high school counselor or the Director of Admissions for UCD.
CREDIT BY EXAMINATION
Degree students may take examinations for credit. To qualify for an examination, the student must be formally working toward a degree at UCD, have a grade-point average of at least 2.0, and be currently registered. Examinations are arranged through the Office of Admissions and Records, and a nonrefundable fee is charged. Students should contact the office of the dean of the academic unit in which they are enrolled.
COLLEGE-LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM
An exciting challenge is available to incoming UCD students who may earn University credit by examination in subject areas in which they have excelled at college-level proficiency. Interested students are encouraged to take appropriate subject examinations provided in the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) of the College Entrance Examination Board testing service. The cost for a single examination is $28. For more information call 629-2861.
Students who are interested in CLEP examinations must contact the office of their school or college.
Credit for Military Service and Schooling and ROTC
MILITARY SERVICE AND SCHOOLING
Applicants with military experience should submit the following with their application in order to have credit
for educational experiences evaluated: (1) a copy of DD Form 214 and (2) DD Form 295, Application for the Evaluation of Education Experience During Military Service. USAF personnel may present an official transcript from the Community College of the Air Force in lieu of the DD Form 295. Credit will be awarded as recommended by the Commission on the Accreditation of Service Experiences of the American Council on Education to the extent that such credit is applicable to the degree sought at UCD. Credit for courses completed through the U.S. Armed Forces Institute will be evaluated on the same basis as transfer credit from collegiate institutions.
RESERVE OFFICERS’ TRAINING CORPS (ROTC)
Students enrolled in Army or Air Force ROTC programs should consult with their college or school regarding the application of ROTC course credit toward graduation requirements. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences allows a maximum of 12 semester hours of ROTC credit to be applied toward baccalaureate degree requirements. The College of Business and Administration stipulates that ROTC courses may be used for credit only for nonbusiness elective requirements and that no credit may be given for freshman and sophomore ROTC courses. Furthermore, a maximum of 12 semester hours may be applied toward baccalaureate degree requirements in business and only if the ROTC program is completed.
Grading System and Policies
The following grading system and procedures for pass/ fail registration, dropping and adding courses, and withdrawal from the University have been standardized for all academic units of the University.
Grade Symbols2
The instructor is responsible for whatever grade symbol (A, B, C, D, F, IF, IW, or IP) is to be assigned. Special symbols (NC, W, and Y) are indications of registration or grade status and are not assigned by the instructor. Pass/fail designations are not assigned by the instructor but are automatically converted by the grade application system, explained under Pass/Fail Procedure.
A—superior/excellent—4 credit points per credit hour.
B—good/better than average—3 credit points per credit hour.
C—competent /average—2 credit points per credit hour.
D—minimum passing—1 credit point per credit hour.
F—failing—no credit points per credit hour.
IF—incomplete—regarded as F if not completed within one year maximum.
IW—incomplete—regarded as W if not completed within one year maximum.
IP—in progress—thesis at the graduate level only.
P/F—pass/fail—P grade is not included in the grade-point average; the F grade is included; up to 16 hours
'Students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science must receive scores of 4 or 5 for credit to be granted; students with scores of 3 may be considered by the department concerned. All credit must be validated by subsequent academic performance.
2Plus/minus grading may be instituted by various University of Colorado schools and colleges beginning with the Spring 1984 Semester. For example, a B+ corresponds to 3.3 credit points, B— to 2.7 credit points.


General Information / 15
of pass/fail course work may be credited toward a bachelor’s degree.
H/P/F—honors/pass I fail—intended for honors courses; credit hours count toward the degree but are not included in the grade-point average.
SPECIAL SYMBOLS
NC—indicates registration on a no-credit basis.
W—indicates withdrawal without credit.
Y—indicates the final grade roster was not received by the time grades were processed.
Grade-Point Average
The grade-point average is computed by multiplying the credit points per hour (for example, B = 3) by the number of hours for each course, totaling the hours and the credit points, and dividing the latter by the former.
Grades of P, NC, Y, W, IP, IW, and IF are not included in the grade-point average.
If an IF grade has not been completed within one year, the course is regarded as failed and a grade of F is automatically calculated in the grade-point average at the end of the one year grace period.
If an IW grade has not been completed within one year, the course is regarded as dropped.
If a course is repeated, all grades earned are used in determining the grade-point average.
The grade-point average of graduate students includes only courses, credit hours, and credit points accumulated while enrolled in the Graduate School.
The grade-point average does not appear on official transcripts issued from the Records Office, but does appear on the Grade Report issued each semester.
Students should consult with the dean’s office for explanation of any exceptions made to the University uniform grade-point average.
Grade Reports
Grade reports are normally available for students to pick up at the Information Center within two to three weeks after the end of the semester. Grade reports are not automatically mailed; however, a self-addressed, stamped envelope may be supplied to the Records Office by individual students.
Transcripts
Transcripts of academic record at the University of Colorado (all campuses) may be ordered in person or by mail from the UCB Records Office, Campus Box B-7, Transcript Section, Regent Administrative Center 125, Boulder, CO 80309. Official transcripts will not be available until approximately five weeks after final examinations. A transcript that is to have the degree recorded will not be available until approximately eight weeks after final examinations. Requests should include the following:
1. Student’s full name (include maiden or other name if applicable).
2. Student number.
3. Birthdate.
4. The last term and campus where the student was in attendance.
5. Whether the current semester grades are to be included when a transcript is ordered near the end of a term.

There is no charge for transcripts. Transcripts are prepared only at the student’s request. A student having financial obligations to the University that are due and unpaid will not be granted a transcript. Copies of transcripts from other institutions cannot be furnished.
PASS/FAIL PROCEDURE
1. Any student who wishes to register for a course on a pass/fail basis should do so during the regular registration period. (Up to 16 semester hours of regular course work may be taken on a pass/fail basis and credited toward the bachelor’s degree.) Changes to or from a pass/fail basis may be effected only during the regular drop/add period.
2. The record of pass/fail registration is maintained by the Office of Admissions and Records.
3. Academic deans and faculty will not be informed of special pass/fail registration. All students who register on a pass/fail basis appear on the regular class roster, and a normal letter grade is assigned by the professor. When grades are received in the Records Office, those registrations which require a pass/fail designation are automatically converted by the grade application system. Grades of D and above convert to grades of P.
4. Only 6 hours of course work may be P/F in any given semester.
5. Exception to the pass/fail regulations is permitted for certain specified courses offered by the School of Education, the Division of Continuing Education, and Study Abroad Programs.
6. Graduate degree students can exercise the P/F option for undergraduate courses only. However, a grade of P will not be acceptable for graduate credit to satisfy any Graduate School requirement.

General Information I 21
Auraria Student Center
The Student Center, located at 9th Street and Lawrence, houses a cafeteria, the campus Book Center, a study lounge, game room, offices for student government and organizations, a copy center, exhibit space, locker rentals, meeting and conference facilities, and a tavern.
Division of Continuing Education
Through its Division of Continuing Education (CE), the University of Colorado at Denver provides off-campus credit and noncredit educational opportunities for the lifelong learner and the non-traditional student. More than
9,000 employees of business, industry, and government, homemakers, senior citizens, and alumni participated in CE classes, workshops, and seminars during the past year.
To provide easy access to as many students as possible, CE uses the city and its environs as its classroom. UCD’s excellent faculty is teamed with highly talented part-time instructors from the Denver metropolitan area to ensure quality and excellence in instruction. Credit class offerings provide a linkage between UCD’s resident degree program on-campus and the part-time, off-campus student. Programs are specially designed to offer career updating for such professionals as teachers, engineers, geologists, and architects. Off-campus credit classes at Lowry Air Force Base and Fitzsimons Army Medical Center give the military student the opportunity to take core course requirements that will later lead to the completion of a degree. CE also assists UCD with the winter and summer session programs.
CE delivers a wide array of noncredit courses for those interested in career updating, personal enrichment, and intellectual stimulation. Specific programs are developed at the request of business and professional groups. These programs include licensing and refresher courses for engineers, accountants, life insurance agents, architects, and commercial property managers. Seminars and certificate programs for business and industry are designed to help keep supervisors and managers abreast of new technologies and their management. Courses in the arts and humanities explore such topics as parenting, self-awareness, music and art, photography, languages, and literature.
Through these off-campus programs, and as part of its public service mission, UCD seeks to extend its wealth of research, knowledge, and talent to the off-campus student. Individuals, groups, and organizations with special education interests are invited to call the Division of Continuing Education at 629-2735.
Development Program
In 1981-82 UCD established a development program in conjunction with the University of Colorado Foundation Inc. The CU Foundation was established in 1967 at the direction of the Board of Regents of the University as a privately governed, nonprofit corporation, chartered under the laws of the State of Colorado. It is operated exclusively for charitable, scientific, or educational purposes designed to promote the welfare of CU. The CU Foundation and its development offices are the approved agency to solicit,
receive, and administer gifts from private sources for the benefit of all campuses.
The Development Program also is integrally related to the Alumni Association and offers leadership to that group.
Center for Environmental Sciences
The Center for Environmental Sciences, funded by federal agencies and private foundations, conducts basic and applied research focusing on understanding and providing solutions for environmental issues related to natural resource development.
The research programs involve faculty, students, and staff from many disciplines at UCD and other universities in the Rocky Mountain region. While the center does not have a formal education program, many students have obtained master’s and Ph.D. degrees while working on center programs. The center’s Analytical Chemistry Laboratory is considered to be one of the premier labs in the nation.
The office of the center is located in the Admin. Bldg., Room 421, telephone 629-3460.
International Education
The Office of International Education on the Boulder campus expedites the exchange of students and faculty, entertains foreign visitors, promotes special relationships with foreign universities, and acts as adviser for Fulbright and other scholarships. The office also arranges study abroad programs and offers over 20 different programs around the globe.
Some of the study abroad programs are of the traditional junior year abroad variety, which places a student directly in a foreign university for an academic year. Such programs are available at the Universities of Lancaster and East Anglia, England; the University of Bordeaux, France; the University of Costa Rica, San Jose; the American University in Cairo, Egypt; the University of Regensburg, Germany; the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel; the University of Bologna, Italy; Konan University, Japan; the University of Seville, Spain; the National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan; Catholic University of Lima, Peru; and Leningrad State University, U.S.S.R. Engineering and commercial Spanish students may be particularly interested in programs at ITESM in Monterrey, Mexico.
For students unable to spend an academic year abroad, programs for a single semester are available with various emphases, particularly on intensive language learning. Students may study beginning-intermediate language in Chambery, France, during the spring semester. In fall, spring, or summer, students may attend a one-semester language program in Jalapa, Mexico. Students who wish the experience of a foreign institution may attend a single semester program in San Jose, Costa Rica; Rennes, France; or Seville, Spain. Special summer programs, e.g., art history in Italy, are organized with specific departments upon request.
Students remain enrolled at the University of Colorado while taking regular courses in the foreign university. A B average with the equivalent of two years of college level work in the appropriate language is required. Financial aid from the University can be applied to program costs

A student will remain on probation as long as the student maintains normal degree progress each semester as determined by the College, and obtains no grade below a C; such probationary status may continue a maximum of four regular semesters (including summer) providing these provisions have been met. Failure to meet these provisions will result in indefinite suspension.
3. Indefinitely suspended students may attend the University of Colorado summer term in order to improve their grade averages in the area of deficiency, but may not attend any division of the University for at least two regular (fall and spring) semesters.
4. A student who has been under indefinite suspension for one calendar year may petition for readmission to the College of Business and Administration. If readmitted, that readmission will be on a probationary status. After being readmitted under such probationary status, any student who fails to comply with the requirements of his/ her probation will be subject to permanent suspension.
5. Any student who is placed on suspension more than once will be permanently suspended from the College of Business.
6. Any student earning all failing grades or no academic credit for the semester will not be permitted to register without the resident dean’s approval.
7. Official combined degree students are required to maintain the same standards of performance as College of Business students in order to be continued in the combined business program.
Scholastic Load
The normal scholastic load of an undergraduate business student is 15 semester hours, with a maximum of 18 hours during the fall/spring semesters and 12 hours during summer terms. A maximum of 3 hours can be taken during the interim/vacation session. Hours carried concurrently in the Division of Continuing Education, whether in classes or through correspondence, are included in the student’s load.
Grading and Policies
See the General Information section for University-wide grading system and pass/fail policy.
Pass/Fail Option. Students in the College of Business and Administration may not take required business or nonbusiness courses, or business elective courses, on a pass/fail basis. Only nonbusiness electives may be taken pass/fail. A maximum of 16 hours of pass/fail credit may be applied toward the B.S. degree in business; transfer students may take 1 hour pass/fail for every 8 hours successfully completed at this institution. Pass/fail determination must be made within the posted deadline, and
is irreversible. A maximum of 6 hours pass/fail may be taken in any one semester.
Failed Courses. A failed course may be repeated, but the F will be included in the grade-point average and will appear on the transcript.
Incomplete Grades. The only incomplete grade given in the College is IF. An IF grade is assigned only when documented circumstances clearly beyond the student’s control prevent the student from completing course requirements (exams, papers, etc.). Generally, students must make up the missing work and may not retake the entire course. Students should not register for the class a second time but should make up the work with the instructor giving the IF. All IF grades must be made up within one year, or the IF will be changed to a grade of F.
Grade Changes. Final grades as reported by instructors are to be considered permanent and final. Grade changes will be considered only in cases of documented clerical errors, and must be approved by the resident dean.
Honors Program—Undergraduate
Upon recommendation of the faculty, students who demonstrate superior scholarship are given special recognition at graduation.
Students must achieve an overall grade-point average of 3.3 and a grade-point average of 3.5 in all business courses taken at the University of Colorado to be considered for cum laude.
Those who achieve an overall grade-point average of 3.5 and a grade-point average of 3.7 in all business courses taken at the University of Colorado will be considered for magna cum laude.
Credit
To receive credit, all courses must be listed on the student’s permanent record page by the Office of Admissions and Records. Credit is then evaluated by the College of Business to determine degree acceptability. Courses completed at any University of Colorado campus are credited toward degree requirements if appropriate to the degree program.
Transfer Credit
Credits in business and nonbusiness subjects transferred from other institutions will be limited to the number of credit hours given for equivalent work in the regular offerings of the University. Only work from regionally accredited institutions will transfer to the College. In general, the College will limit transfer credit for business courses taken at a lower division level to such courses as the College offers at that level. Actual equivalent courses usually may be substituted for required courses. However, students must verify with advisers that courses are equivalent. Careful checking is required. A course given at another institution may have the same name and same textbook as a required business course and still be taught with a nonbusiness emphasis or other variations that gives it little value for business.
A maximum of 60 semester hours taken at junior colleges may be applied toward the B.S. degree in business. Remedial or vocational work does not transfer. Business


College of Business and Administration / 31
courses from junior colleges will not be applied toward degree requirements if the course work is offered at the junior-senior level at UCD.
Business students desiring to take work at another institution or another campus of the University of Colorado and apply the work toward the B.S. degree in business must have prior approval of a College of Business adviser. No credit will be given for courses without the proper approval. Grades of C or better must be earned to receive degree credit. Generally, only elective credit is acceptable in transfer from other institutions once the student has enrolled in the College.
All courses in the area of emphasis must be taken at the University of Colorado. Transfer students must take a minimum of 30 semester hours of business courses at the University after admission to the College of Business.
For a detailed explanation of transfer credit, see the General Information section of this bulletin.
Correspondence Credit
Only 30 semester hours of credit taken through correspondence study will be counted toward the B.S. degree in business. A business adviser’s approval is required prior to registering for correspondence courses. Required business courses and area of emphasis courses cannot be taken by correspondence. All correspondence courses are evaluated to determine their acceptability.
Credit by Examination
College Level Examination credits (CLEP subject examinations only) are acceptable toward degree requirements to a maximum of 30 hours. Specific information is available in the College of Business and Administration office.
CLEP credit will be applied in the same manner as transfer credits. For credit, students must rank in the 66.7 percentile based on national available norms. Generally, CLEP credit is only appropriate for (a) nonbusiness requirements and (b) nonbusiness electives. A maximum of 6 hours of credit in any one course area is allowed. CLEP may not be used in course areas where credit has already been allowed. General examinations are not acceptable.
Advanced Placement (CEEB) credit will be given where appropriate to students who make scores of 3, 4, or 5.
Special Sources of Credit
Without prior approval of the resident dean, the College reserves the discretion of accepting or rejecting all special sources of credit. A maximum of 6 hours of physical education, theory, recreation or dance credits can be accepted toward graduation.
Up to 6 hours of experimental studies, independent study programs, and other nontraditional types of credit can be accepted toward graduation, but prior approval of a business adviser is required. A maximum of 3 hours of this type of credit may be taken in any one semester.
Junior or senior business students desiring to work beyond regular business course coverage may take variable credit courses (1 to 3 semester hours) under the direction of an instructor who approves the project, but the student must have prior approval. Information and request forms are available in the College of Business and Administration
office. The request form must be signed by the instructor, division head of the student’s area of emphasis, and resident dean.
To receive credit for business or nonbusiness independent study courses and experimental studies, students must obtain the dean’s approval prior to registering for the course. Further information and forms are available in the College office.
No credit is given for work-experience or Cooperative Education programs.
ROTC Credit
Students who are enrolled in and complete the ROTC program may apply a maximum of 12 semester hours of advanced ROTC credit toward nonbusiness elective requirements and toward the 120-semester hour total degree requirement for the B.S. degree in business. No credit toward requirements is granted for basic (freshman and sophomore) ROTC courses. The ROTC adviser can provide more detailed information.
Study Abroad Credit
Study abroad programs are available for students who are interested in international business or in cultural experiences abroad. One such program is the London Seminar in International Finance, a month-long, 6-credit-hour program held each summer in the financial district of London, England. The seminr is open to juniors and seniors in the College of Business and Administration who have completed at least one course in international finance or international trade.
Transfer credit from study abroad programs is most appropriately applied as nonbusiness elective credit. Students are responsible for checking with a business adviser for approval prior to the semester in which they intend to study abroad. Information on the various study abroad programs is available at the Office of International Education on the Boulder campus.
No Credit
Due to space limitation, business classes may not be taken on a no-credit basis.
Special Student Hours
Accepted business students may transfer toward degree requirements a maximum of 12 hours of work taken as a special student. Approval of the resident dean is required.
UNDERGRADUATE DEGREE PROGRAM
The undergraduate curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science (Business) degree is intended to help the student achieve the following general objectives:
1. Understanding of the activities that constitute business enterprise and of the principles underlying administration of those activities.
2. Ability to think through logically and analytically the kinds of complex problems encountered by management.
3. Facility in the arts of communication.

Admission of Freshman Students
See the General Information section for admission and application procedures.
Prospective students in business are encouraged to pursue a broad college preparatory program in high school, with particular emphasis on English, mathematics, the social sciences, and science skills. The College expects entering freshmen to present 15 units of the secondary course work. Completion of at least two units of algebra and two units of English composition is strongly recommended.
Admission of Transfer Students
See the General Information section of this bulletin for admission and application procedures.
Intrauniversity Transfer
Students who want to transfer to the College of Business and Administration from another college or school of the University must formally apply at the College of Business office. A minimum University of Colorado grade-point average, business course grade-point average, and minimum number of academic hours (both established by the College) are required for consideration. Transfer deadlines are July 15 for fall, November 15 for spring, and April 15 for summer.
Students desiring admission to official combined programs must apply to and be accepted by the College of Business. Minimum grade-point averages are also established for these jointly enrolled students. Applications are available from a business adviser.
The College will consider each application based upon the student’s academic standing, the quality of the student’s academic work, and the courses completed.
To apply for an intrauniversity transfer, students must submit an Intra-University Transfer form and UCD transcript to a business adviser. Forms are available at UCD Admissions or the College of Business office; transcript request forms are available at UCD Records. The transcript must include the student’s most recent semester at the University. Students with previous course work from other institutions are also required to submit a copy of their transfer credit evaluations (advanced standings).
Combined Programs and Double Majors
Official combined programs are available only in conjunction with the College of Engineering and Applied Science, the College of Design and Planning (Boulder campus), the School of Journalism (Boulder campus), and the School of Pharmacy (Boulder campus). These combined programs and double degree programs with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences require approval of the deans of both colleges. Applications are available from a business adviser. Students receiving two degrees, one of which is business, but not an official combined program, must
complete at least 150 semester hours of course work. Such programs are considered five-year programs.
Second Undergraduate Degree
Students may apply to the College of Business and Administration to earn a second undergraduate degree, provided the first undergraduate degree is in a field other than business. The student who is accepted for the second undergraduate degree will be required to pursue courses in the sequence normally required for a degree plan. For example, if a student registered for the second degree has not had the required mathematics or general education courses, these must be taken before the student will be eligible to register for business courses. Further, the basic business courses (core courses) must be taken before a student begins to pursue the major field. Applications are available through the Office of Admissions and Records.
Applicants for the second undergraduate degree are required to have a personal interview with a business adviser. Eligible students will be notified when their admissions files are complete and the interview is desired.
If a student applying for a second undergraduate degree has an academic record that justifies consideration for the graduate program, that student will be encouraged to consider one of the master’s programs.
Graduation Requirements
The student alone is responsible for the fulfillment of these requirements. Questions concerning graduation should be directed to a business academic adviser, College of Business and Administration office, 1055 Wazee St., Denver, CO 80204.
The Bachelor of Science (Business) degree requires:
1. Total Credits. A total of 120 acceptable semester hours of credit, of which at least 54 hours must be in nonbusiness courses (including 9 hours of upper division work) and at least 51 hours in business courses.

All incomplete grades and correspondence course grades must be completed and recorded at the Office of Admissions and Records no later than four weeks prior to graduation. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the instructor concerning the removal of incomplete grades. A maximum of 60 semester hours taken at junior colleges may be applied toward the B.S. degree in business.
2. Residence. Completion of at least 30 semester hours of business courses, after admission to the College of Business and Administration, including the 12 hours in the area of emphasis.

Accounting
Finance
Information systems International business Marketing
Minerals land management Organization management Personnel-human resources management
Production and operations management

Auditing Data processing and
Financial accounting control systems
Managerial accounting Teaching and research
Tax accounting
In all of these fields a thorough knowledge of the social, legal, economic, and political environment is needed. A high degree of analytical ability and communication skill is indispensable.

FINANCE
The principal areas of study in finance are financial management, monetary policy, banking, investments, and insurance. Finance is intended to give an understanding of fundamental theory pertaining to finance and to develop ability to make practical applications of the principles and techniques of sound financial management in business affairs. Every endeavor is made to train students to think logically about financial problems and to formulate sound financial decisions and policies. It is necessary to understand the importance of finance in the economy and the functions and purposes of monetary systems, credit, prices, money markets, and financial institutions. Emphasis is placed on financial policy, management, control, analysis, and decision making. Numerous opportunities are to be found with financial institutions and in the field of business finance. Acct. 202 is a prerequisite for this area.

The student develops those technical skills and administrative insights required for the analysis of information systems, the design and implementation of systems, and the management of data processing operations. The emphasis is on management information systems— systems for the collection, organization, accessing, and analysis of information for the planning and control of operations. The automation of data processing is also studied extensively. Students should note that not all courses are offered each semester.
Students planning to pursue accounting as a career usually take more than the required 12 hours. Many students take a total of about 30 hours of accounting, often taking two courses each semester in their junior and senior years.

INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS
In recent years, companies have completely reoriented their thinking, planning, and operations to capitalize on the opportunities offered in the world marketplace. Every phase of business operation is affected by this reorientation, and individuals who offer the appropriate skills, training, and orientation are in great demand.
The program reflects the basic principle that effectiveness in international business is based on a thorough training in business administration. The international business program provides the opportunity to build on these skills. The student electing this area must complete 15 semester hours as follows:

A second area of emphasis in business is highly recommended. The course requirements for the second area can be included as part of the business and free elective hours. Foreign language skills are much sought after by business recruiters for this field. Other courses emphasizing international affairs may be elected from the following departments: anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, psychology, and sociology. Students interested in this area may start their preparation by electing language and other liberal arts and sciences courses in their program.
MARKETING
Marketing is concerned with analyzing the market for a product or service, planning and developing that product, determining the most appropriate distribution channels, pricing the product, and promoting it. Today the administrative policies and practices of any well-managed firm should be marketing-oriented toward the consumer.
The career opportunities in marketing reflect the business person’s awareness of the importance of this field. Today many individuals are rising to top executive positions by the marketing route. There are more executive and other job opportunities for women in the marketing field than in any other single area outside teaching or secretarial
work. One out of every four people gainfully employed in this country is in a marketing position.
Career opportunities abound in personal selling, advertising, sales management, marketing research, retailing, wholesaling, marketing by manufacturers, international marketing, etc.

PRODUCTION AND OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT
Production and operations management studies are designed to prepare students for careers as production manager, operations manager, management analyst, or systems analyst in such private sector organizations as manufacturing, banking, insurance, hospitals, and construction, as well as in a variety of municipal, state, and federal organizations.
Production or operations managers may be charged with the design, implementation, operation, and maintenance of the production systems. Managerial activities could include forecasting demand, production planning and inventory control, scheduling labor and equipment, job design and labor standards, quality control, purchasing, and facilities location and layout.
The outlook for jobs in this area continues to be strong in the 1980s. This placement is aided by the student chapter of the American Production and Inventory Control Society and work intern programs provided to qualified students. Participation in live case research and consulting projects with local organizations is usually an integral part of this course of study.
Students whose major areas of emphasis are information systems, transportation management, or engineering will find the production management 400-level courses to be particularly well related to their courses of study. Students should plan their schedules carefully as required courses are not offered every semester.

application procedures as outlined under Graduate Program in Health Administration.
BACKGROUND REQUIREMENTS
Students applying for graduate programs in business do not need to have taken their undergraduate degrees in business. For those students the M.B.A. or M.S. degree programs provide a series of 3-semester-hour fundamental background courses. These include B.Ad. 501 (Accounting), B.Ad. 502 (Statistics), B.Ad. 503 (Marketing),
B.Ad. 504 (Management and Organization), B.Ad. 505 (Finance), B.Ad. 506 (Business Law), B.Ad. 507 (Management Science), and Econ. 201 and 202 (Macro and Micro Economics) or Econ. 300 (Accelerated Principles of Economics). In addition, all graduate students are required to take either B.Ad. 500 (Sources of Information and Research Methods—1 semester hour) or pass a qualifying examination.1 Graduate-level business courses are open only to admitted graduate degree students, except for HA. 601 (see course description).
In order to waive the relevant graduate fundamental courses, students must have completed equivalent courses at a regionally accredited university with grades of C or better. Students possessing an undergraduate degree in business must be prepared to present the following course work in order to waive the relevant graduate fundamental courses:
Semester Hours
Introduction to Accounting (Financial/Managerial)................6
Statistics......................................... by qualifying
exam only
Principles of Marketing......................................... 3
Introduction to Management and Organization..................... 3
Finance......................................................... 3
Business Law.................................................... 3
Operations Research/Management Science.......................... 3
Principles of Economics (macro/micro)............................6
or
Accelerated Economics (must include macro/micro)................ 3
Remedial work is required of all applicants accepted for the M.B.A. and M.S. programs who do not have the mathematical and programming skills. Students entering any of the graduate programs are required to take either
B.Ad. 502 (Fundamentals of Business Statistics) or to pass satisfactorily a qualifying examination1 covering this subject matter.
Prospective graduate students who have not met graduate application deadlines may enroll at UCD as special students and take undergraduate courses to fulfill business background requirements. Please contact the UCD Office of Admissions for the appropriate application materials.
General Information—Master’s Programs
Advising. All graduate students should report first to the student adviser in the Graduate School of Business Administration office for the purpose of ascertaining deficiencies and principal field of interest. The division heads of each area serve as faculty advisers.
During the first term of residence, each student should prepare a degree plan. This plan, with appropriate signatures, should be filed in the Graduate School of Business Administration.
Course Load. The normal course load for full-time graduate students is 12-15 semester hours.
Minimum Hours Required. A candidate for a master’s degree in business must complete a minimum of 30 semester hours of graduate work plus any deficiencies. A maximum of 6 semester hours of graduate work can be transferred from another AACSB-accredited master’s program.
Comprehensive Examination. A comprehensive examination is not required for students pursuing the Master of Business Administration degree program. Each candidate for a Master of Science degree is required to take a comprehensive final examination during the candidate’s last semester of residence. Students must be registered when they take this examination. Comprehensive examinations are given in November, April, and July.
Students must file an Application for Admission to Candidacy and Diploma Card with the Graduate School of Business Administration prior to the final term of their residency.
Minimum Grade-Point Average. A minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 must be achieved in courses taken after the student’s admission to the graduate program. Effective fall semester 1974 all courses taken as a special student at the University of Colorado count toward the overall grade-point average for students who are later admitted to any graduate program in business. If the student’s cumulative grade-point average falls below 3.0, he or she will be placed on academic probation and given one regular semester (summer terms excluded) in which to achieve the required 3.0 cumulative average. Failure to achieve the required average within the allotted time period will result in dismissal.
The grade of D is not a passing grade for graduate students. A graduate student may repeat a course once for which he or she has received a grade of D or F. Both the original grade and the grade for the repeated course count in the computation of the grade-point average.
To earn a grade of W (withdrawal) in a course, a graduate student must be earning a grade of C or better in that course. Students will not be permitted to withdraw from courses after the tenth week of the semester.
An IF grade is a valid grade only until the middle of the second semester (summer terms excluded) following that in which the grade of IF is given. By the end of that interval, the instructor concerned must have turned in a final grade of A, B, C, D, or F. If no reports are received from the instructor within the allotted time, the IF will be converted to F.
Time Limit. All graduate courses, including the comprehensive final examination, should be completed within five years. Courses completed earlier will not be accepted for the degree unless validated by a special examination. Candidates for the master’s degree are expected to complete their work with reasonable continuity.
Master of Business Administration
The Master of Business Administration program is devoted to the concepts, analytical tools, and communication

For students taking an area of emphasis in accounting, Acct. 322, 323, and 332 or their equivalents are prerequisites for all graduate level accounting courses. Acct. 533 is substituted for B.Ad. 620. Acct. 628 and two other graduate-level accounting courses are required in the area of emphasis. It is strongly recommended that accounting students take Fin. 601 as one of their functional courses.
Requirements for an area of emphasis in finance are Fin. 601, 602 and either Fin. 633 or 655.
Requirements for an area of emphasis in marketing are Mk. 600, 605 and one additional graduate marketing course.
Candidates pursuing the area of emphasis in management science normally elect either a decision science option or an information systems option. Those electing the decision science option will normally take Mg.Sc. 601, 602, and
Q.M. 620. Those electing the information systems option will normally take I.S. 565, 645, and 650. In addition, I.S. 220 and 221 or their equivalents are required prerequisite courses for the area. Students should consult with the information systems adviser about their course selection.
Students taking other areas of emphasis should consult the head of the division concerning the requirements.
No thesis is required in the M.B.A. program. In the total program there must be a minimum of 30 semester hours of graduate course work and a minimum of 24 semester hours of course work at the 600 level. Independent
study is normally not acceptable for credit in the 30 semester hours of the M.B.A. program.
Master of Business Administration Executive Program
The Executive MBA Program is a multi-campus program of the Graduate School of Business Administration. It provides executive-level students with a broad, rigorous two-year academic experience leading to the Master of Business Administration degree. The program is designed for persons who hold managerial positions in business or other complex organizations. It builds upon the experience of these executive students with a sophisticated, challenging academic curriculum which can be pursued simultaneously with a management career.
The Executive MBA Program emphasizes corporate planning, the business/government interface, and the applied tools of management. Courses are taught through a variety of methods. Case studies, lectures, and computer simulation are combined with research projects and other teaching methods to provide students with tools useful in their present positions and applicable to more advanced responsibilities as they progress in their management careers.
The program covers a two-year period scheduled in eight terms of ten weeks each, with a summer break. Classes meet one day per week on alternating Fridays and Saturdays. The curriculum is supplemented by special speakers, a two-day retreat at the end of the program, and some evening group discussions.
FACULTY AND RESOURCES
The faculty for the program are members of the regular faculty of the Graduate School of Business Administration from all three of the University’s campuses—Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Denver. They are selected to conduct these courses because their backgrounds enable them to make the strongest contribution to the program. Many of the faculty members are nationally recognized and all possess both practical managerial experience and a demonstrated ability to work effectively with executive level students.
ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
The Executive MBA Program is designed for men and women who have a minimum of five years of business or administrative experience, including at least three years in a managerial position. They should be part of senior management in a small organization or senior or middle management in a larger one, hold at least a baccalaureate degree, and have the ability to do graduate work.
In the selection process, significant attention will be given to the depth and breadth of the candidate’s managerial experience, progression in job responsibility, total work experience, and ability to benefit from this integrative classroom/work environment. The Admissions Committee will base its decision on the application, former academic record, the employer’s nominating letter, other letters of recommendation, and if deemed desirable, personal interviews with the committee.

Master of Science in Health Administration
The goal of the Master of Science in Health Administration (M.S.H.A.) degree program is to prepare men and women who, after appropriate practical experience in responsible managerial positions, are capable of assuming positions as chief executive officers or senior administrators
in complex, multi-service health care organizations.
The curriculum is a synthesis of management concepts and techniques that are applicable to any economic organization and tools that can be specifically applied to health and health services systems. The program emphasizes skills which heighten basic analytic and decision-making processes used by top level managers in selecting broad strategies for their institutions and by junior managers in administering sub-units of their organizations. The faculty guide the students in their mastery of theoretical, conceptual, and quantitative topics.
All students are expected to complete a minimum of 39 semester hours of graduate level course work, in addition to any necessary fundamental background courses. (See Background Requirements under Graduate Degree Programs.) The curriculum is based on a series of structured learning sequences with fundamental courses comprising the majority of the first full year, supplemented by several core health administration courses.
The second academic year provides the student with advanced training in health administration. In addition, the student must choose a concentration of elective courses in a minor area that generally results in an analytic specialty.

College of Design and Planning
John M. Prosser, Acting Dean
INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE
The College of Design and Planning (formerly College of Environmental Design) at UCD offers five graduate programs: the Master of Architecture, Master of Architecture in Urban Design, Master of Interior Design, Master of Landscape Architecture, and Master in Planning and Community Development; and one service program, the Center for Community Development and Design. Undergraduate programs in the College are available only through the University of Colorado at Boulder, and students interested in the Bachelor of Environmental Design degree should see the catalog for that campus.
The College offers programs for two purposes: to train men and women who can meet the complex and demanding challenge of developing and shaping the environment, and to provide the practicing professional a means of keeping abreast of cultural and technological changes.
In recent years, the roles and responsibilities of the environmental design professions have broadened. The social and physical problems encountered by the architect, urban designer, the landscape architect, the planner, the technologist in environmental systems, and the interior designer have minimized the lines of demarcation among these professions and interdependence among them has increased.
The College maintains traditional and essential ties with the professions and practitioners in the community, and relies on local professionals to reinforce its teaching program.
The College of Design and Planning is a member of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture and Collegiate Schools of Planning and is represented by its students, faculty, and alumni on various professional boards, committees, and societies. The Architecture Division is accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. The College’s program in planning was granted renewed recognition by the American Planning Association in 1980 for a five-year period. In 1981, the landscape program received its initial two-year accreditation from the American Society of Landscape Architects.
Full professional status in most environmental design fields generally requires a minimum of five or six years of academic experience and two or three years of practical experience followed by state registration or licensing through a professional examination.
Qualifications for success in these careers are not easily measured. Candidates for this profession must have the ability to complete successfully an academic program ranging from fundamental humanistic and scientific courses through applied technical activity to full creative development. They should have a background of secondary education that includes courses in mathematics and physics. Some experience in creative activity may aid them in predetermining if personal satisfaction is derived from the creative process.
Design and Planning Library
The Design and Planning Library, a branch of the Auraria Library, serves as a learning resource center for the design fields. It contains the following collections provided to support the curricula of the College:
1. Professional reference collection containing technical materials selected to support design and planning studio projects.
2. Core collection of circulating materials comprised of standard works in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, urban design, and urban planning.
3. Collection of planning documents issued by local, regional, state, and federal agencies with an emphasis on materials pertaining to Colorado communities and concerns.
4. Collection of periodicals relating to the design fields.
5. Reserve collection providing resource materials for required and supplemental class reading.
6. Small, but growing, nonprint media collection which includes architectural slides, multi-media kits, microcomputer software, and microforms.
In addition, the main Auraria Library houses background and research materials of interest to design and planning students and faculty, including materials in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and engineering.
The branch library is open 59 hours per week, including some evening and weekend hours. The staff includes a librarian, one library assistant, and several student assistants. The branch library provides a number of services including reference and research assistance, library-use instruction, and circulation of materials. Additional services, such as interlibrary loans and computer assisted research, are provided through the main Auraria Library.

Computer-Aided Instruction
The College established a computer-aided instruction laboratory in the fall of 1981. The laboratory has micro and mini-computers with access to computers on other campuses. The computers are being used in the areas of computer-aided design, solar architecture, space planning, computer graphics, site engineering, and planning.
Model Shop and Photo Laboratory
The College maintains a darkroom for student use as well as a variety of camera and audiovisual equipment. These facilities are valuable aides in preparing class presentations, design projects, portfolios, and in learning multi-media techniques for presentations. The model shop is available for use in fabricating architectural models and in furniture design projects. A staff technician is on duty to assist students in the use of these facilities.
Financial Aid
Graduate scholarships and fellowships are available to continuing students only, with the exception of Colorado Grants. A limited number of Colorado Grants are available to new students who are residents of the state of Colorado and who fulfill the University’s criteria for financial need. Forms to apply for State of Colorado Graduate Grants, Federal Work-Study Assistance, and Federal National Direct Student Loans (NDSL) are available through the Office of Financial Aid, UCD, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.
Grade-Point Average Requirement and Scholastic Suspension
Students must maintain a 3.0 average for a degree. Students who fail to meet the minimum requirements during any semester will be permitted to continue their studies during the second semester, but will be placed on probation. Students who fail to meet the minimum requirement after two semesters will be suspended. After a period of one year, appeal for readmission may be made by petitioning the Scholastic Deficiency Committee of the College or the director.
Special Students
Beginning with fall 1981, the College of Design and Planning accepts only up to 16 credit hours of courses taken as a graduate special student for application toward degree credit.
Residence Requirement
A student must be in residence for at least one full academic year’s work, which is normally 30 semester hours.
Time Limit
Beginning with fall 1981, students in two-year programs must complete all work required for a graduate degree within a five-year period from the time of first enrolling for classes as a degree candidate. Students in three-year programs must complete all work within a six-year period.
Elective Courses
Elective courses must be at the 300 level or above. Students should check with their respective director regarding subject choices.
MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE
The Division of Architecture offers three degree programs, all of which lead to the Master of Architecture. The three programs are named by typical time-in-residence: three-year, two-year, and one-year programs. The three-and two-year programs lead to the first professional degree for architectural practice; the one-year program leads to a second professional degree.
The one-year program is open only to applicants already holding the first professional degree in architecture (generally the bachelor’s, occasionally the master's) and entails a minimum of 32 credit hours. Individually organized studies are focused on the student’s interests in architecture or in architecture with an energy specialization.
The two-year program is open to holders of the Bachelor of Environmental Design or Architectural Studies degree and is arranged to receive graduates of the Division of Environmental Design at Boulder or similar undergraduate studies at other schools and entails a minimum of 64 credit hours.
The three-year program is open to holders of the bachelor’s degree in all other fields and typically requires 96 credit hours for completion.
Curriculum
The Division of Architecture is a professional school; its role and purpose is the education of men and women who wish to design buildings. The division provides studies in architectural design, graphic communications, history and theory, technology, and professional practice.
Architectural design is the central activity of the several programs and the design studio serves to integrate architectural learning from all course work in the supportive arts and sciences. Most studios are conducted on the case study method; skill in the definition and the solution of design problems is acquired through the analysis and the working of exercises which simulate actual building problems. Advanced studio options are available with projects in the Center for Community Development and Design. The design thesis is the culmination of architectural studies.
Communications courses provide the graphic skills necessary to present design ideas. History and theory courses anchor the student’s work in social responsibility, and in an understanding of the forces that give shape to buildings and cities. Technology courses give basics in structures, and in the environmental concerns of utilities, heating, lighting, and acoustics. Professional courses provide exposure to the workings of contemporary practice, and an internship in a practicing professional’s office is a course option in the final year.
The goal of all of these studies is competency for the graduates of the division as intelligent, knowledgeable, and creative designers, each at the threshold of entry to


46 / University of Colorado at Denver
architectural careers in private practice, government, or industry.
Admission Requirements

The recommended minimum grade-point average is 2.75 on a 4-point scale. If the student’s grade-point average is below 2.75, the Graduate Record Examination is recommended as part of the application materials. The student, however, will be evaluated for admission on the basis of all the application materials and not the grade-point average alone.
One-Year Program
The one-year program is available only to students already holding the first professional degree, the Bachelor or Master of Architecture. The Master of Architecture is awarded upon satisfactory completion of 32 semester hours of studio course work and thesis. Two study programs are offered, Urban Design (see the Division of Urban Design) and Energy.
The Energy curriculum was inaugurated in the fall of 1981 and brings together outstanding faculty from the profession and research. The program provides studio opportunities exploring energy as the basis for a new design paradigm, and provides studies in building energy performance quantification. These studies in energy design and analysis are supported by the computer laboratory within the College.
Two-Year Program
The two-year program is open to the student with a four-year Bachelor of Environmental Design or Architectural Studies degree who seeks the first professional degree in architecture. The program is a two-year, 64-semester-hour series of studies leading to the Master of Architecture degree.

MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE IN URBAN DESIGN
Urban design is one of the graduate design and planning programs taught at UCD’s ideal location in the core of the metropolitan Denver area. The curricula focus on the complex problems that are generated by change and growth in a vigorous urban and regional laboratory. Emphasis is given to participatory community and publicly funded design, research, and technology. Special efforts are made to use the vast resources available from federal, state, and local agencies and institutions which are concentrated in the immediate community. Specific courses and projects are arranged to incorporate these allied academic, civic, and citizen inputs into the design processes.
The sequential format, content, and progression of the Architecture in Urban Design program has been developed to provide a broad range of study which combines architecture, landscape, planning, urban design, business, and public affairs methodologies. Direct contact and coordination with the activities of the students and faculty in these disciplines is an essential part of the curriculum. Importance is given to the problem-solving processes associated with mixed use complexes, neighborhood, activity center, village, town, mainstreet, and cityscape projects.
Specific courses in urban technologies, urban theories, environmental impact analysis, including social and economic planning factors, are available.
Options
Two sequences are available in the program. The one-
year postprofessional program is for students who have obtained a five-year Bachelor of Architecture degree. The other is a Mainstreets non-prelicensing two-year graduate degree for students who have received a bachelor’s degree in environmental design, landscape, architectural studies, planning, business, engineering, social sciences, or urban studies. In both sequences, studio and/or field work is the focal point for the specialization selected by the student. The projects chosen are developed on an independent study basis. Meetings, seminars, and evaluations are scheduled between the student and the faculty advisers. Cognate courses are selected with the guidance of the faculty advisers from related subjects offered by the College or other units of the University.
Postprofessional
In the one-year program, the thesis sequence is a synthesis of the special factors influencing urban design in one of five options: recreational facilities, community development, rehabilitation or renewal, transportation, and health care. In this phase students are carefully advised throughout the period of their independent research and design studies. Opportunities to do state and city outreach work in association with the Center for Community Development and Design (the College state-wide design aid field program for ethnic and economic minorities) are available or heavily emphasized. Many other real problems and/or case studies from the community, which require anticipatory and feasibility design and development, also are considered. During the final sequence semester of the one-year program, students have a wide choice of professional electives which can be closely related to their thesis problem selection. Whenever possible, individual or team projects in cooperation with allied disciplines and institutions are encouraged.
A degree is awarded upon satisfactory completion of 30 semester credit hours minimum. The program is structured for students who wish to pursue advanced studies in compound, complex community architecture and urban design problems.

Mainstreets
In the two-year program, the new intercollegiate urban design emphasis option is now operational. The University of Colorado at Denver is responding to a regional and national demand for educated young professionals in the complex field of mainstreet conservation. The two distinguishing features of this program are (1) urban design for the first time is being given the interdisciplinary curriculum in the fields it actually covers in the professional


48 / University of Colorado at Denver
world (public affairs, business, real estate development, community development, planning and design) and (2) the program and its curriculum are based on the evolving concept of service-learning education.
Through the College of Design and Planning, outreach division requests for mainstreet technical assistance and research studies are matched with faculty and student research and assistance teams through existing core and elective courses. In one-third of the curriculum, students either will have the opportunity or will be required to join with interdisciplinary assistance teams. Not only does the students’ education improve, but also Colorado communities receive a service that draws upon the most current state of knowledge, technologies, and methodologies.
Students will be given the knowledge base and practitioner skills to work successfully in a local context which embraces community composition, political organization, decision-making processes, small business management and operation, and the physical environment. Employment opportunities for persons completing the program include town management, economic development, mainstreets revitalization, and community development in the public sector as well as development, real estate, and planning in the private sector.
The program is structured and arranged sequentially to maximize the opportunity for real world experience through design studio, internship, and thesis requirements. Whenever possible, students will be encouraged to work in a particular neighborhood or rural community throughout their programs.

MASTER OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
The Master of Landscape Architecture (M.L.A.) degree program at the University of Colorado at Denver is accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board, American Society of Landscape Architects.
This academic program leading to the M.L.A. responds to a perceived need to offer professional training that prepares students to meet the complex and demanding challenges of shaping the arid region landscape.
Urban and rural development pressure in the western region has created an urgent need for comprehensive landscape problem-solving skills. These skills include an understanding of the earth sciences which determine the arid region concept of “environmental limits and tolerances.” The processes described in these related earth sciences provide a regional concept for designing and planning landscape for public and private use, human enrichment, and resource conservation.
Two programs are offered leading to the Master of Landscape Architecture degree. Students entering the program without a first professional degree are required to take a minimum of 96 hours. This is essentially a three-year program. Applicants who enter with a first professional degree (B.L.A. or B.Arch.) are required to take a minimum of 64 credit hours in a two-year program.
These two programs offer the candidate an opportunity to develop an elective package, parallel to the M.L.A. core curriculum, which would give the student the equivalent of a related professional minor. The electives are included in the hour requirements for both the two- and three-year programs.
A thesis is required of all M.L.A. candidates. The thesis is the culmination of the academic curriculum. More specifically, the thesis sequence requirement comprises three courses: Research Methods for Designers and Planners, Landscape Architecture Thesis Research, and Landscape Architecture Thesis. The thesis may be a design, research, natural resource, or community development topic, and each must include a case study proof.
The Curriculum
The curriculum has been planned to include those awarenesses and skills considered essential to core and advanced professional training in the field of landscape architecture. These areas include concentration in design, land and building technology, history and theory of the built environment, and a working knowledge of natural systems. The primary focus of the program is DESIGN and the design process.
Opportunities exist to develop complementary knowledge and skills related to interdisicplinary projects involving the other College of Design and Planning programs in Architecture, Planning and Community Development, Interior Design, and Architecture in Urban Design. Additionally, through the Center for Community Development and Design (CCDD is an outreach program in the College of Design and Planning), the M.L.A. candidate is afforded the opportunity for actual project experience either in the Denver metropolitan area or the state of Colorado.
The hierarchy of courses from term to term for the most part is planned sequentially leading to the thesis. The thesis is intended to be a comprehensive individual experience under the guidance of the entire L.A. faculty and applicable outside specialists.
Admission Requirements
Applicants to the three-year program or those who do not have a first professional degree (Bachelor of Landscape Architecture) should have proficiency in college mathematics, physical science, English, environmental science, and a basic course in art or drawing.
Applicants to the two-year program having undergraduate degrees in urban and regional planning, architecture, environmental design, or other physical design degrees are considered for admission upon individual evaluation of their undergraduate curriculum, scholastic performance, and professional experience. To be considered for admission into the graduate programs in landscape architecture, applicants must submit application forms, a $20 application fee, official college transcripts, three letters of recommendation, statement of purpose, and a portfolio of academic and professional work by March 15 preceding the fall semester they wish to enter the program. The portfolio format should be 14" by 17" or smaller.
Application forms and further information may be obtained by writing to the Director, Landscape Architecture, College of Design and Planning, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.

MASTER’S DEGREE IN PLANNING AND COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
The MPCD Division prepares students to become professional planners—career specialists in researching, designing, evaluating, and implementing strategies of environmental and community action. Planners build careers in such fields as environmental design, community development, land use and growth management, social services, environmental administration and assessment, policy analysis, energy development, natural resources, land development, private planning consultation, corporate planning, urban redevelopment, housing, and regional planning. Because Denver is the Rocky Mountain West’s central location for managing and planning these fields of action, UCD planning students are often able to combine learning general principles and skills in the classroom with practical working experience in nearby operating agencies and organizations. The program welcomes part-time and non-traditional students.
Curriculum
The curriculum requires 60 semester hours as a minimum for graduation. Forty-five of these semester hours are required core courses aimed at training the student in basic planning purposes, principles, content, research methods, techniques and implementation. Of these required credits, 3 are spent in experiential learning and internships with public agencies and other organizations. Three planmaking studios are required with one possibility being an integrated studio with the other design divisions in the College, and the last studio being a thesis.
Another 15 credit hours of the curriculum are elective. They are chosen in consultation with the student’s faculty adviser to form a consistent pattern of planning expertise along the lines of the individual’s major interests. The courses may be chosen from the MPCD’s own core electives, from other programs in the College of Design and Planning, or from other graduate schools at UCD and the metro area. The division has organized the following optional areas of specialization:
Community Development Regional Policy Administration
Community Economic Revital- Rural and Small Town Planning
ization Social Planning
Energy Transportation
Land Use Urban Analysis
Neighborhood Planning Urban Design
Planning Administration Urban Economic Development
Regional Analysis
Admission Requirements
Application forms must be submitted by April 15 for the fall semester. On a space available basis, applications are occasionally accepted for individual semesters. The deadlines in these cases are: July 10 for fall, December 10 for spring, and April 15 for summer. Applications for admission are reviewed by a Faculty-Student Committee. Criteria for admission include academic performance, work experience, interest, and motivation for study.
Application forms and information may be obtained by writing to Director, Planning and Community Development Program, College of Design and Planning, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.
SPECIAL ACADEMIC PROGRAM
To provide unusual educational and practical experiences for outstanding students in all five graduate divisions, the College has established an optional, integrated, multidisciplinary studio. These classes are offered fall semesters to final-year students who choose to work on unique public and private actual design and planning projects for which the College has been asked to provide educational, technical, and research assistance. During the last six years, more than 25 of these comprehensive studies have been completed by teams of students for towns, communities, neighborhoods, institutions, agencies, and companies. The studio is jointly taught by faculty from the five professional divisions and the Center for Community Development and Design.
CENTER FOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN
The Center for Community Development and Design provides educational and technical assistance to solve design, planning, and community development problems upon request to groups, organizations, neighborhoods, communities, and small towns that cannot afford or do not have access to these services. The Center provides these services to aid in the development of the community and to encourage local self-reliance. These services are provided by faculty-student research and assistance teams.
A central goal of the Center is to combine academic and practical experience of students working with community members on problem solving through supervised projects in the field. The faculty and staff of the Center coordinate community projects for which students register through classes in the various academic curricula. Students who register for these projects assume an added responsibility of satisfying client needs that goes beyond academic credit.
Students are expected to do two things: utilize and develop professional expertise which not only enhances their own education but also better prepares them to assist in the community problem-solving process, and to develop


52 / University of Colorado at Denver
an understanding for community participatory processes and be able to integrate these into the technical aspects of their community project.
The types of projects students may select to work on include developing a physical design program for a child care center in an inner-city neighborhood; assisting a neighborhood to organize, design, and implement a self-help housing program in a small mountain town; and developing a comprehensive plan in cooperation with a planning commission in a Colorado high plains town.
Mainstreets Program
A joint effort by UCD and the State Department of Local Affairs, this innovative program provides assistance to small towns attempting to restore the economic viability of their retail cores. Interdisciplinary teams of students will work closely with the communities to address planning, design, and economic development issues (see urban design program options). Please refer to the Master of Architecture in Urban Design program for Mainstreets.
Community Research Center
Conducting applied social science research on the structure and dynamics of communities—whether inner city, suburb, or impacted rural area—is the mission of the Community Research Center (CRC). With the establishment of the CRC, the Center for Community Development and Design (CCDD) completes the triangle of what its projects encompass: assistance, education, and research. In addition to functioning as the in-house research arm on CCDD projects, the CRC also conducts research on a contractual basis for government entities, communities, and design/planning professionals. The CRC affords University faculty and students the opportunity to participate in applied research projects.
Areas of expertise within the CRC include social impact assessment, program evaluation, social surveying, organizational development, conference planning, and consultation to the design and planning profession on the social and behavioral aspects of design and planning.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROFESSION
Through engineering the resources of nature are used for the benefit of humanity and the environment. Engineers today are expected not only to be in the forefront of high technology, but significant contributors to the betterment of the environment in the social and humanistic sense as well. Engineering professional societies have committed themselves to the principle that, as mankind gains the ability to build more powerful machines and more useful devices, there must be a strong and successful effort to protect natural resources and the environment.
An engineering career demands hard work, and so does an engineering education. In return engineers have excellent opportunities to work in various places, meet new challenges, or move upward in management. The engineer is generally well paid and usually in demand; in the rare times when there is a surplus of certain kinds of engineers, individuals usually have little difficulty finding attractive opportunities in other fields.
Currently, registration is required in all states for the legal right to practice professional engineering. Although there are variations in the state laws, graduation from an accredited curriculum in engineering, subscription to a code of ethics, and four years of qualifying experience are required. In addition, two days of examinations covering the engineering sciences and the applicant’s practical experience are required in most states.
A listing of the fields in which engineers work would have many hundreds of entries. The following list gives only a brief summary.
The aerospace engineering sciences prepare engineers for an industry that encompasses the design and construction of both commercial and military aircraft and the development and fabrication of space vehicles. Advances in this technology have permitted the industry to enter also the fields of urban mass transit, undersea exploration, bioengineering, nuclear engineering, laser technology, and many other emerging high technology fields. An aerospace engineer often works at the forefront of engineering with scientists in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, etc.
Applied mathematics meets the need of modem research, which is dependent upon advanced mathematical concepts. Almost all concerns that are engaged in industrial and
scientific research today need applied mathematicians, as do organizations involved in computational work, statistical analysis, or stochastics.
Architectural engineering involves work within the building industry in engineering design, construction and contracting, or sales engineering. Areas of specialization are: construction engineering, environmental engineering, or structural engineering.
Chemical engineers convert natural resources into industrial and consumer products in facilities that include refineries and gasification plants. Among their products are many that often are not identified with chemical engineering—oils, metals, glass, plastics, rubber, paints, soaps and detergents, foods, beverages, synthetic and natural fibers, nuclear and exotic fuels, medicines, and many others.
Civil engineering offers an interesting and challenging career in the design and construction of buildings, bridges, dams, aqueducts, and other structures; in transportation systems including highways, canals, pipelines, airports, rapid transit lines, railroads, and harbor facilities; in the transmission of water and the regulation of rivers; in the development of water resources for urban use, industry, and land reclamation; in the control of water quality through water purification and proper waste treatment; in the construction and contracting industry; and in the problems concerned with mankind’s physical environment and the growth of cities.
Computer science involves work in the theory, design, and application of computers and computational methods. It includes design and construction of efficient software systems as well as hardware design and manufacture. The application of microprocessors to many areas of engineering has opened new doors in computer engineering and computer science.
Electrical engineering offers professional possibilities that include teaching and research in a university; research in development of new electrical or electronic devices, instruments, or products; design of equipment or systems; production and quality-control of electrical products for private industry or government; and sales or management for a private firm or branch of government. There are numerous specialties within electrical engineering. Among them are the design and application of computer systems; electromagnetic fields, which are basic to radio, television, and related systems; communication theory and signal


56 / University of Colorado at Denver
processing; electrical machinery; solid-state, integrated-circuit, and electron devices; energy and power control systems; and others.
The engineering physicist works where new kinds of engineering are being born, or where many fields are being used jointly. General knowledge of the diverse fields of physics provides the ability to deal with industrial problems that cannot be solved by a standardized procedure in a specialized field.
Mechanical engineering is very broad in scope, not identified with or restricted to a particular technology, vehicle, device, or system but instead is concerned with all such subjects, both individually and collectively. Typical starting assignments for the graduating senior include positions with oil, construction, and automotive industries, or in computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM).
INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE

The College of Engineering and Applied Science at UCD offers four-year programs leading to the B.S. degree in civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics. The civil, electrical, and mechanical engineering programs are currently accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
Availability of Degree Programs
The University of Colorado at Denver (UCD) will accept for matriculation only those prospective engineering students who designate a degree program awarded by the UCD College of Engineering and Applied Science. For 1984-85, the following engineering degrees are awarded by UCD: civil engineering, computer science, mechanical
engineering, electrical engineering, and applied mathematics. Students desiring degree programs other than those named above must apply to the campus awarding the degree. In some cases, the University campus accepting the student may grant permission to take courses on another CU campus, subject to enrollment limitations. In such cases, the engineering department of the admitting campus will counsel the student in the preparation of course schedules.
The course requirements during the freshman year are detailed within the curriculum given under each department.
Some of the sophomore year is common to all, and the remainder of the courses begin to point to the various fields of engineering taught; real specialization begins, however, in the junior year and carries on through the senior year. A fifth year of study leading to the master’s degree is strongly urged for qualified students of more than usual ability who feel they can profit from additional study.
At UCD it is also possible for a student to obtain a bachelor’s degree in engineering and a bachelor’s degree in business in five years plus one or two summer terms. Any of the engineering degree programs can be modified for an excellent premedical program. If liberal arts students elect certain courses in science, mathematics, and engineering as undergraduates, they may earn an engineering degree in four semesters after graduation from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Graduate Degree Programs
UCD offers graduate degree programs in civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics.
For information regarding courses and requirements leading to the Master of Engineering, Master of Science, or to the Ph.D. degree, see the Graduate School section of this bulletin.
Summer Courses
Summer term courses are planned for regular students and those who must clear deficiencies. Courses also are offered for high school graduates who wish to enter as freshmen and for those who need to remove subject deficiencies. Students should write to the UCD Office of Admissions and Records for the Schedule of Summer Courses.
For some students there are advantages in starting their college careers during the summer term. Some required freshman and sophomore courses are normally offered at UCD during the summer. The summer term gives students a head start and enables them to take a lighter load during the fall semester or take additional courses to enrich their program.
Scholarships, Fellowships, and Loan Funds
Money contributed to the University Development Foundation for assistance to engineering students is deposited in appropriate accounts and used according to the restrictions imposed by the donors. Numerous industries match employee contributions. A list of companies contributing to scholarships and fellowships and different loan funds

available can be obtained from the dean’s office. Applications are available in October or November for the following academic year.
Student Organizations
A general student organization, known as the Associated Engineering Students (AES), of which all students in the College are members, has supervision of matters of interest to the whole group.
Student chapters (or clubs) of the following professional societies are well established at UCD:
American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)
American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Society of Women Engineers (SWE)
These societies meet frequently to present papers, speakers, films, and other programs of technical interest.
The following honorary engineering societies have active student chapters in the College of Engineering and Applied
Science:
Chi Epsilon, civil and architectural fraternity Eta Kappa Nu, electrical engineering society Tau Beta Pi, engineering society
REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION
The student must meet the admission requirements described in the General Information section of this bulletin and of the College of Engineering at which the degree program selected by the student is offered. UCD currently offers the following programs: civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics. Persons of sufficient maturity and experience who do not meet the prescribed requirements for admission may be admitted upon approval of the resident dean.
Beginning students in engineering should be prepared to start analytic geometry-calculus. No credit toward any degree in engineering will be given for algebra, trigonometry, or precalculus mathematics (Math. 101, 111, 112, and 113) but these courses will be offered to allow a student to make up deficiencies. Any student who questions the adequacy of his or her pre-college background in mathematics should see the applied mathematics coordinator for suggestions. Diagnostic tests covering precalculus mathematics are at the Auraria Book Center to assist new freshmen in selecting the appropriate beginning mathematics course.
To be prepared for the type of mathematics courses that will be taught, the student must be competent in the basic ideas and skills of ordinary algebra, geometry and plane trigonometry. These include such topics as the fundamental operations with algebraic expressions, exponents and radicals, fractions, simple factoring, solution of linear and quadratic equations, graphical representation, simple systems of equations, complex numbers, the binomial theorem, arithmetic and geometric progressions, logarithms, the trigonometric functions and their use in
triangle solving and simple applications, and the standard theorems of geometry, including some solid geometry. It is estimated that it will usually take seven semesters to cover this material adequately in high school.
It is strongly recommended that students take at least two units of a foreign language in high school. Beginning in 1987, two years of a foreign language in high school will be a requirement for admission to the College of Engineering.

Former Students
Former students must meet the readmission requirements outlined in the General Information section of this bulletin. Students who have withdrawn must obtain permission of the resident dean to reenroll in the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Students who interrupt their course of study may be required to take any preparatory courses which have been added during their absence or to repeat courses in which their preparation is assessed to be weak.
'Applicants not meeting these requirements will be considered on an individual basis. A student who is not prepared should expect to make up deficiencies.
2A unit of work in high school is defined as a course covering a school year of not fewer than 36 weeks, with five periods of at least 40 minutes per week. (Two periods of manual training, domestic science, drawing, or laboratory work are equivalent to one period of classroom work.) This is equivalent to 180 actual periods per unit. Fractional credits of value less than one-half unit will not be accepted. Not less than one unit of work will be accepted in a foreign language, elementary algebra, geometry, physics, chemistry, or biology.
’Electives may be chosen from any of the high school subjects (except physical education) which are accepted by an accredited school for its diploma and which meet the standards as defined by the North Central Association. However, not more than two units will be considered from drawing, shop, or other vocational work; courses that have descriptive geometry features may be considered for elective units beyond the recommended units.

Transfer Students
Students transferring from other accredited collegiate institutions may be considered for admission on an individual basis if they meet the requirements outlined in the General Information section of this bulletin and the freshman requirements for entering the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Intrauniversity transfers, within the same campus of the University, to the College of Engineering and Applied Science will be considered on an individual basis if both of the following conditions are fulfilled:
1. Enrollment limitations permit.
2. The student’s prior academic record fulfills the admissions requirements of the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Intercampus transfers of students from one campus of the University to another will be considered on an individual basis if the following conditions are fulfilled:
1. Enrollment limitations permit.
2. The student has a minimum of 30 hours in an engineering curriculum at that campus, not counting transfer hours.
3. If an engineering student, the student is in good academic standing with at least a 2.0 cumulative grade-point average for all courses attempted and for all courses that count toward graduation requirements. If not an engineering student, the student’s academic record has all that fulfills the admission requirements of the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Interdepartmental transfers, whether on the same campus or from one campus to another within the College of Engineering, require the approval of both the gaining and losing departments in addition to the intercampus and intrauniversity transfer requirements listed above.
Some course sequences should be completed before transferring to another campus; therefore, it is strongly recommended that students who contemplate transferring campuses see their department adviser prior to initiating the transfer request.
Both intrauniversity and intercampus transfers are subject to review by a faculty committee which evaluates the applicant’s qualifications for academic success in engineering subjects.
TRANSFER CREDIT
After a prospective transfer student has made application and submitted official transcripts to the University of Colorado, Office of Admissions and Records, that office issues a Statement of Advanced Standing (currently Form 382) listing those courses that are acceptable by University standards for transfer. A copy of this statement is sent to the student and to the resident dean’s office by the Office of Admissions and Records and is made a part of the permanent record. The appropriate engineering faculty departmental representative will use this copy of the form to indicate which of those credits listed may be acceptable toward the 128-hour graduation requirement in the College of Engineering and Applied Science and note the tentative acceptance of these credits by dating and initialing each acceptable course listed on the Statement of Advanced
Standing. The student should be aware that the acceptance is tentative and is contingent upon satisfactory completion of a minimum of 30 semester hours at the University of Colorado before the credits may be officially applied toward the degree requirements. It is the responsibility of transfer students, after having completed the 30 semester credit hours at the University of Colorado, to request final validation of the credits by their department and to have this validation noted on the Statement of Advanced Standing kept in the resident dean’s office.
If at any time a student wishes to have a course not previously accepted considered again for transfer, the student should consult with the departmental transfer adviser and complete a petition to the resident dean through the department chairman. All transfer credit must be validated by satisfactory achievement in subsequent courses.
NONTRANSFERABLE CREDITS
Students desiring to transfer credits from engineering technology programs should note that such credits are accepted only upon the submission of evidence that the work involved was fully equivalent to that offered in this College.
There are technology courses given with titles and textbooks identical to those of some engineering courses. These may still not be equivalent to engineering courses because of emphasis that is nonmathematical or otherwise divergent.
In order to assist engineering technology students with transfer planning, the following guidelines have been established:
Courses on basic subjects such as mathematics, physics, literature, or history may be acceptable for direct transfer of credit if they were taught as part of an accredited program for all students and were not specifically designated for technology students.
Students who have taken technology courses (courses with technology designations) that may be valid equivalents for engineering courses have these options:
1. They may petition faculty advisers to waive the requirement for the course. The requirement for a course can be waived if students demonstrate that, by previous course work, individual study, or work experience they have acquired the background and training normally provided by the course. No credit is given toward graduation for a waived course, but students may benefit from the waiver by being able to include more advanced work later in their curriculum. Other students may profit by taking' the course at this College instead and thus establish a fully sound basis for what follows.
2. Credit for a course may be given if the course work was done at an accredited institution of higher education. The University of Colorado department involved may recommend that credit be transferred to count toward the requirements for a related course in its curriculum. Credit cannot be given for vocational-technical or remedial courses under rules of the University. (See section on transfer of college-level credit in the General Information section of this bulletin.)
3. Students may seek credit for the course by examination.


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 59
ACADEMIC POLICIES
Refer to the General Information section of this bulletin for descriptions of University-wide policies.
The following policies apply specifically to the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Advanced Placement
Advanced placement credit may be granted by special examination of the department involved or by College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) tests. If the applicant has scored 4 or 5 on the CEEB Advanced Placement Examination, credit toward graduation may be awarded. Students who have scored 3 may be considered for advanced placement by the department concerned. All advanced placement and transfer credit must be validated by satisfactory achievement in subsequent courses, in accordance with standard transfer policies of the College.
Advanced placement credit for the freshman mathematics courses in calculus will be limited to not more than 4 hours each.
Attendance Regulations
Successful work in the College of Engineering and Applied Science is dependent upon regular attendance in all classes. Students who are unavoidably absent should make arrangements with instructors to make up the work missed. Students who, for illness or other good reason, miss a final examination must notify the instructor or the resident dean's office no later than the end of the day on which the examination is given. Failure to do so will result in an F in the course.
Changing Departments
Students who wish to change to another department within the College of Engineering and Applied Science must apply for transfer by submitting a Change of Major for Undergraduate Degree Students form which must have the approval of both departments concerned. (See also discussion of interdepartmental transfer requirements under Transfer Students.)
College-Level Examination (CLEP) Credit
Prospective students may earn college-level credit through the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject examinations, provided that they score at the 67th percentile or above. Departments will advise students of the credits accepted for such courses. The number of credits so earned must be within the limits of the number of elective hours of the individual department. A list of subjects in which CLEP examination credit will be accepted may be obtained from the College of Engineering and Applied Science office. (See also College-Level Examination Program in the General Information section of this bulletin.) (CLEP general examinations are not acceptable.)
Counseling
Freshman students are counseled by the resident dean’s office and by representatives from each academic department. These representatives are readily available to assist students with academic, vocational, or personal concerns.
Students are assigned specific departmental advisers for academic planning and should consult with the departmental chairman or designated representative for assignment.
Course Load Policy
Full-time Students. Undergraduate students employed less than 10 hours per week should register for the regular work as outlined in the departmental curricula. Additional courses may be allowed when there is satisfactory evidence that these extra courses can be taken profitably and creditably. Permission to take more than 21 hours may be granted only after written petition and approval of the departmental chairman and the resident dean.
Employed Students. Suggested maximum course loads for undergraduate students employed 10 or more hours per week are as follows:
Employed 40 or more hours per week—two courses (maximum of 9 semester hours)
Employed 30 to 39 hours per week—three courses (maximum of 12 semester hours)
Employed 20 to 29 hours per week—four courses (maximum of 15 semester hours)
Employed 10 to 19 hours per week—five courses (maximum of 18 semester hours)
Freshman Year
Fundamentals taught in the freshman year are of prime importance in the more advanced classes, and every effort is made to register a beginning freshman in the proper courses. (Course requirements for freshmen are detailed within the curriculum given under each department.)
All freshmen are urged to consult their instructors whenever they need help in their assignments.
Repetition of Courses
Students may not register for credit in a course in which they already have received a grade of C or better. When a student takes a course for credit more than once, all grades are used in determining the grade-point average. An F grade in a required course necessitates a subsequent satisfactory completion of the course.
No Credit
An engineering student must petition for approval before enrolling no credit (NC) for any course. Required courses may not be taken for no credit. Once a course has been taken NC, the course cannot be repeated for credit.
Work Experience
It is the policy of the College of Engineering and Applied Science that any credits accrued in the official records of the student that were awarded for work experience (or for Cooperative Education experience) will not apply as part of the hours required for an engineering degree.
College Policy on Academic Progress
An engineering student must maintain a cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 or better, in hours attempted at the University of Colorado and in addition for those courses required toward graduation requirements, in order


60 / University of Colorado at Denver
to remain in good standing in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Grades earned at another institution are not used in calculating the grade-point average at the University of Colorado. However, grades earned in another school or college within the University of Colorado will be used in determining the student’s scholastic standing and progress or lack of progress toward the Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Students whose overall average falls below 2.0 will be placed on probation for the next semester in which they are enrolled in the College and will be so notified. If, after that semester the student’s average is still below 2.0, the student will be suspended from the College.
The following is additional information and interpretation of the policy:
1. Students who have been suspended are suspended indefinitely and may not enroll at any University of Colorado campus during any regular academic year, September through May, but may enroll in summer sessions or Vacation College and/or may take correspondence courses for credit through the Division of Continuing Education.
2. Students who have been suspended may apply for readmission during the second semester following their suspension if they bring their University of Colorado cumulative average up to a 2.0 through summer session, Vacation College, and/or correspondence work applying to engineering degree requirements as approved by a member of the Academic Progress Committee.
3. Students, upon satisfactorily completing at another college or university a minimum of 12 semester hours of acceptable work appropriate to an engineering curriculum subsequent to suspension, may apply for readmission as a transfer student during the second semester following their suspension.
4. Applicants for readmission to the University of Colorado cannot be assured readmission.
5. During a probation semester the student must complete a normal load, i.e., 12 hours or more (for a fulltime student) of courses counting toward graduation requirements. Physical education courses do not count; if the student has previously completed 6 hours of ROTC courses, ROTC courses do not count; if the required hours of social-humanistic subjects have been completed, social-humanistic subjects do not count.
6. Students who have been on probation or suspension at any time in the past will automatically be suspended if their overall average again falls below a 2.0.
Details of the probationary and suspension status and of the conditions for return to good academic standing will be stipulated in the letters of probation and suspension. Information regarding these matters may be obtained in the Office of the Resident Dean, Room UA 516.
In addition to College policies, departments within the College may set standards of progress within their department.
Academic Ethics (Dishonesty, Cheating)
Students are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the highest standards of honesty and integrity. Cheating, plagiarism, illegitimate possession and disposition
of examinations, alteration, forgery, or falsification of official records, and similar acts or attempts to engage in such acts are grounds for suspension or expulsion from the University.
In particular, students are advised that plagiarism consists of any act involving the offering of the work of someone else as the student’s own. It is recommended that students consult with their instructors as to the proper preparation of reports, papers, etc., in order to avoid this and similar offenses.
At UCD there is a code of Student Standards of Conduct. A copy of the code and information regarding all student grievance procedures may be obtained in the Student Academic Services office.
Grading System, Incompletes, Pass/Fail and Drop/Add Procedures
See the General Information section of this bulletin for the University of Colorado uniform grading system and for additional pass/fail information and drop/add procedures. Also see the current Schedule of Courses.
GRADING SYSTEM
It is particularly important to note that in the College of Engineering and Applied Science courses to be counted toward fulfilling the graduation requirements cannot be taken no credit (NC).
INCOMPLETES
An incomplete may be given by the instructor for circumstances beyond the student’s control, such as a documented medical or personal emergency. When it is given, the student, the resident dean’s office, and the departmental office are informed, in writing, by the instructor who states what the student is to do in order to remove the incomplete and when the tasks are to be completed. The instructor may assign only the 1/F grade. The student is expected to complete the course requirements, e.g., the final examination and term paper, within the established deadline and not to retake the entire course. The grade will be converted automatically to a grade of F after one year unless the specified work is completed.
PASS/FAIL
The primary purpose for offering courses on a pass/ fail grade basis is to encourage students, especially juniors and seniors, to broaden their educational experience by electing challenging courses without serious risk to their academic records. In general pass/fail should be limited to 300- or 400-level courses. Students must process the pass/fail form during the first two weeks of the semester. Engineering students cannot take required courses pass/ fail. Below are specific pass/fail regulations for the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
1. A maximum of 16 pass/fail hours may be included in a student’s total program. A maximum of 6 hours may be taken in one semester, but it is recommended that not more than one course at a time be taken pass/ fail.
2. Courses that a student may elect to take pass/fail shall be designated and approved in advance by the student’s


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 61
major department. If courses not so designated are taken, the earned grade will be recorded in place of the P. An engineering student who has not designated a major field will not be allowed the pass/fail option without approval through the resident dean’s office.
3. A transfer student may count toward graduation one credit hour of pass/fail for each 9 credit hours completed in the College; however, the maximum number of pass/fail hours counting toward graduation shall not exceed 16, including courses taken in the Honors Program under that program’s pass/fail grading system.
4. Students on academic probation should not enroll for pass/fail courses.
DROP/ADD
See the General Information section of this bulletin for drop/add procedures and deadlines. Only under very extenuating circumstances will petitions for dropping courses be considered after the tenth week of the semester.
Sequence of Courses
Full-time students should complete the courses in the department in which they are registered according to the curriculum shown under their major department in this bulletin. Part-time students may need to modify the order of courses with adviser approval. Any required course failed should be repeated as soon as the course is offered again.
Students who receive a grade of D or F in a course that is prerequisite to another may not register for the succeeding course unless they have the permission of both the department and the instructor of the succeeding course.
Students may enroll for as much as 50 percent of their courses in work that is not a part of the prescribed curricula of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, provided they have at least a 2.0 grade average in all college work attempted. Exceptions to this policy may be made by petition and may be made for students admitted to the engineering-business program.
Graduation With Honors
In recognition of high scholastic and professional attainments, Honors or Special Honors (at the discretion of the Engineering Honors and Recognition Committee) will be awarded at graduation. These honors will be recorded on the diplomas of the graduates receiving them and indicated in the commencement program.
Social-Humanistic Content of the Engineering Curriculum
The faculty of the College of Engineering and Applied Science requires that 18 semester hours shall be considered the minimum of social-humanistic content of the degreegranting departments. However, some departments require 24 semester hours.
Six hours of social-humanistic subjects should be taken at the junior level and 6 at the senior level. These subjects should be taken from the following categories, with no more than half from any one of the three categories listed below:
1. Literature (including foreign literature either in the original or in translation).
2. Economics, sociology, political science, history, anthropology, and psychology.
3. Fine arts and music (critical or historical).
Courses such as accounting, contracts, management,
elementary foreign languages, public speaking, and technical writing should be used as technical electives where applicable. (Elective courses are to be coordinated with the faculty adviser.)
Qualified students will be permitted to take appropriate honors courses for social-humanistic electives.
The Humanities and Literature Program is designed to develop communication and analytical skills which are essential for every professional person. Engineering students may select courses from the three components of the program:
1. Hum. 101, an interdisciplinary, team-taught class, is a core course in the Honors in Humanities Program offered by the Division of Arts and Humanities (see the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Division of Arts and Humanities, section of this bulletin for details).
2. A sequence of seven Great Books courses. This series, chronologically arranged, begins with the Classical Heritage and ends with Contemporary World Literature. Students may take any of these courses. They need not be taken in order; rather, students should choose those historical periods of most interest to them. (The sequence is Engl. 251, 252, 253, 254, 256, 257, 258—see the English course descriptions for details.)
3. Engl. 120, Introduction to Fiction, and Engl. 130, Introduction to Poetry and Drama, focus on methodology more than the Great Books sequence, dealing with analyses of literary forms and structures. Students should determine the specific requirements of their particular degree programs with respect to humanities and literature.
PLANNING AN ENGINEERING PROGRAM
It is the responsibility of students to be sure they have fulfilled all the requirements, to file the intended date of graduation in the departmental office at the close of the third year, to fill out a Diploma Card at registration at the beginning of the last semester, and to keep the departmental adviser and the resident dean’s office informed of any changes in the students’ plans throughout the last year.
In order to become eligible for one of the bachelor’s degrees in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, a student, in addition to being in good standing in the University, must meet the following minimum requirements:
Courses. The satisfactory completion of the prescribed and elective work in any curriculum as determined by the appropriate department.
Hours. A minimum of 128 hours, of which the last 30 shall be earned after matriculation and admission as a degree student in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at CU is required for students in the four-year curricula; however, many students may need to present more than the minimum hours because of certain de-


62 / University of Colorado at Denver
partmental requirements and because they may have enrolled in courses which do not carry full credit toward a degree. The hours required for students in the business and engineering program vary by departments; as a guide, 158 semester hours are considered a minimum, but most students follow programs that bring the total above this figure.
Grade Average. A minimum grade-point average of 2.0 (C) for all courses attempted and (separately computed) for all required courses. A department may require a C average or a minimum grade of C in all major courses.
Faculty Recommendation. The recommendation of the faculty of the department offering the degree and the recommendation of the faculty of the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
Incompletes and Correspondence Courses. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all incompletes and correspondence courses are officially completed before the tenth week of the student’s final semester in school.
Simultaneous Conferring of Degrees. For business and engineering students, the degree B.S. in business and the degree B.S. in engineering must be conferred at the same commencement.
Commencement Exercises. Commencement exercises are held in May. Students finishing in December and August may attend commencement the following May or receive diplomas by mail.
UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES
In addition to the standard four-year degree programs previously listed, the College is involved in the following programs.
Business and Engineering Curricula
Undergraduates in the College of Engineering and Applied Science with career interests in administration may complete all of the requirements for both a B.S. degree in engineering and a B.S. degree in business by extending their study programs to five years, including one or two summer terms. The 48 semester credits required in the College of Business and Administration may be started in the second, third, or fourth year, depending upon the curriculum plan for the particular field of engineering in which the student is enrolled.
Students taking these undergraduate programs are not required to submit formal application for admission to the College of Business. However, before enrolling in any business courses, the student must see an adviser and have approval from the College of Business.
Requirements for the undergraduate business degree and engineering degree must be completed concurrently. At least a 2.0 grade average must be earned in all courses undertaken in the College of Business. Not fewer than 30 semester credits in business courses must be earned to establish residency credit. Courses offered by the College of Business may be used in lieu of electives required for undergraduate engineering degrees, subject to the approval of the individual department.
It is also possible for qualified graduates (GPA: 3.0 or better) to complete the requirements for a master’s
degree in business within one year after receiving the baccalaureate degree in engineering. Before deciding upon the business option, a student should carefully consider, in consultation with departmental advisers, the relative advantages of the B.S. business-B.S. engineering curricula, the degree program of the Graduate School of Business Administration, and the M.S. degree program in the student’s own engineering discipline.
The required nonbusiness courses are listed in the College of Business and Administration section of this bulletin.
The business requirements for this program are as follows:
Courses Semester Hours
Econ. 201 and 202. Principles of Economics........................6
(Should be completed during the student’s sophomore year or junior year.)
Acct. 200. Introduction to Financial Accounting................... 3

Specified courses in an area of emphasis in one of the following fields: accounting, finance, information systems, international business, marketing, minerals land management, organization management, personnel-human resources management, production and operations management, public agency administration, real estate, small business management, or transportation and distribution management. All course work in the area of emphasis must be taken in the University
of Colorado College of Business and Administration............. 12
Total 48
The student should note that for some courses, and for some areas of emphasis, there are prerequisites which must be met. Since some of the courses may be taken as engineering electives, it is possible to obtain the two degrees in as few as 158 semester hours; however, most students will require more.
Joint Engineering Degrees
A student may obtain two engineering degrees by meeting the requirements and, by petition, obtaining the approval of both departments concerned. Thirty hours of elective or required subjects in addition to the largest minimum number required by either of the two departments must be completed. Of the 30 additional hours for the second degree, a minimum of 24 hours shall be in courses in the department concerned or in courses approved in writing in advance by the department as substitutes.
Premedicine Option
A professional school in a field such as medicine requires a student to have a college education prior to pursuing its professional courses. In practically all cases, medical


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 63
students are university graduates, although occasionally a student may enter medical school after three years of university training. A student can prepare for medical school either in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences or in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. The desirability of obtaining an engineering education prior to undertaking a study of medicine is increasing continually, as medicine itself is evolving. A great deal of additional equipment, most of it electronic, is being developed to assist the medical practitioner in treatment of patients. Bio-engineering, engineering systems analysis, probability, and communication theory are highly applicable to medical problems. Improved communication techniques also are allowing the storage and retrieval of information not previously available to the medical doctor. An advanced knowledge of basic mathematics and computing techniques, along with increased understanding of physical chemistry, are improving the scientific base upon which medical knowledge rests. It is therefore desirable that the medical practitioner and researcher in the future be well equipped with the tools which engineering can offer.
To provide at least a minimum of the necessary knowledge, the additional courses listed below are prescribed and must be completed with superior grades. General overall requirements for entry into most medical schools are given. Students can meet these requirements by careful substitution of electives in the engineering curriculum. In some cases where additional hours may be required, interested students should consult with the engineering department chairman.
General chemistry (103-106).......... 2 sem. (8-10 sem. hrs.)
Organic chemistry (341, 342, 343,
344).............................. 2 sem. (8-10 sem. hrs.)
General biology (205-206)............... 2 sem. (8 sem. hrs.)
English composition..................... 1 sem. (3 sem. hrs.)
To prepare for a career in medicine in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, it is strongly recommended that the student follow a full four-year college program and earn a B.S. degree.
The Admissions Committee of the University of Colorado School of Medicine welcomes inquiries and visits from prospective students, particularly at the time of their first interest in medicine as their chosen profession.
Students desiring to enter a premedical program should consult the representative of the department involved. At UCD, premedical advising is available through the Health Careers Adviser, Science Bldg., Room 223C.
GRADUATE STUDY IN ENGINEERING
The College of Engineering and Applied Science at UCD offers graduate programs in civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics.
For information regarding courses and requirements leading to the degrees Master of Engineering, Master of Environmental Science, Master of Science or to the Ph.D. degree, see the Graduate School section of this bulletin.
Education for Employed Professional Engineers
Continuing education for employed engineers grows more important each year. Therefore, the College puts great emphasis upon making graduate courses available through night and televised courses. The Master of Engineering degree permits graduate students more flexibility in defining specialized interdisciplinary fields that meet their professional needs. This degree has standards fully equivalent to those of the Master of Science degree.
In addition to credit course work, the College works jointly with the Division of Continuing Education to offer noncredit courses of interest to practicing engineers.
Concurrent B.S. and M.S. Degree Program in Engineering
Students who plan to continue in the Graduate School after completing the requirements for the B.S. degree may apply for admission to the concurrent degree program through their department early in the second semester of their junior year (after completion of at least 80 semester hours). Requirements are the same as for the two degrees taken separately: 128 credit hours for the B.S. degree and 30 credit hours for the M.S. degree. Social-humanistic requirements must be completed within the first 128 credit hours. A 3.0 grade-point average for all work attempted through the first six semesters (at least 96 credit hours) and written recommendations from at least two major-field faculty members are required.
The purpose of the concurrent degree program is to allow the student, who qualifies for graduate study and expects to continue for an advanced degree, to plan his/ her graduate program from the beginning of the senior year rather than from the first year of graduate study. The student can then reach the degree of proficiency required to begin research at an earlier time, and can make better and fuller use of courses offered only in alternate years.
Students will be assigned faculty advisers to help them develop the program best suited to their particular interests. Those in the program will be encouraged to pursue independent study on research problems or in areas of specialization where no formal courses are offered. A liberal substitution policy will be followed for courses normally required in the last year of the undergraduate curriculum. The program selected must be planned so that the student may qualify for a B.S. degree after completing the credit-hour requirements for the degree if the student so elects, or if the student’s grade-point average falls below the 3.0 required to remain in the program. In this case, all hours completed with a passing grade while in the program will count toward fulfilling the normal requirements for the
B.S. degree. There will be no credit given toward a graduate degree for courses applied to the B.S. degree requirements; however, students are still eligible to apply for admission to the Graduate School under the rules set forth in the Graduate School section of this bulletin. Normally, however, the student will apply for admission to the Graduate School when at least 122 of the 128 credit hours required for the B.S. degree have been


64 / University of Colorado at Denver
completed, and will be awarded the B.S. and M.S. degrees simultaneously upon meeting the requirements set forth for the concurrent degree program.
Graduate Work in Business
Undergraduates in engineering who intend to pursue graduate study in business may complete some of the business background requirements as electives in their undergraduate programs. Seniors in engineering who have such intentions and appear likely to qualify for admission to graduate study in business may be permitted to register for any of the graduate fundamentals courses which are designed to provide qualified students with needed background preparation in business. Students should see an adviser from the College of Business for approval.
AEROSPACE ENGINEERING SCIENCES
Admission to this program must be approved by the department at the Boulder campus.
The primary objective of the aerospace engineering sciences curriculum is to provide sound general training in subjects fundamental to the practice of and research in this branch of engineering sciences. The major part of the first three years is devoted to the study of mathematics, physics, mechanics, chemistry, and the humanities. The fourth year is devoted to the professional courses in the fields of physics of fluids (fluid dynamics); propulsion and energy conversion; flight dynamics, control, and guidance; space system analysis; materials and structural mechanics; space environment; and bioengineering.
The minimum total number of semester hours for the B.S. degree is 128 and business courses may not be substituted for technical electives in the aerospace curriculum.
The complete aerospace engineering sciences program is not available at UCD. Therefore, students wishing to complete this program must apply to the University of Colorado at Boulder. The complete curriculum, degree requirements, and descriptions of courses may be found in the University of Colorado at Boulder Catalog.

APPLIED MATHEMATICS
Charles I. Sherrill III, Coordinator
The Division of Natural and Physical Sciences in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers all courses in mathematics, both required and elective, for undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Three curricula leading to the degree B.S. (A.Math.) are offered. In Option I, the student takes a minor in a specific engineering department, satisfying an adviser from that department. In Option II, the student takes distributed course work in engineering departments, including a solid grounding in mechanics, electronics, and materials. Option III is a joint mathematics-computer science program. Regardless of the option chosen, each student is expected to complete a minimum of 45 semester hours of course work in mathematics beginning with Math. 140.
Modern industrial and scientific research is so dependent on advanced mathematical concepts that applied mathematicians are needed today by almost all concerns which are engaged in such research.
The undergraduate curriculum is designed to give training in mathematics and in engineering and science. The use of numerical methods and electronic computers is included.
Nontechnical electives should be broadening and have cultural value. Courses in the humanities and the social sciences are required. Students interested in research should take a foreign language as early as possible. Beginning language courses are normally considered technical electives but may count toward the social-humanistic electives. Some 300- and 400-level language courses may be counted. Under all circumstances, a student must plan a complete


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 65
program and obtain the approval of a departmental adviser at the beginning of the sophomore year.
The B.S. degree in applied mathematics for new freshmen requires the completion of a minimum of 128 credit hours of course work with an average grade of C or better (a
2.0 grade-point average) and a grade of C or better in all mathematics courses. Course work in the social-humanistic elective area must be approved by the student’s adviser.

ARCHITECTURAL ENGINEERING
John R. Mays, Coordinator
Admission to this program must be approved by the department at the Boulder campus.
The architectural engineering curriculum is administered at the Boulder campus by the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Its purpose is to prepare a student for a career in the building industry and for graduate-level research on building-related topics. The building industry is the largest single industry in the United States and includes many diverse skills and fields of knowledge.
This course of study fulfills the academic requirements for registration as a professional engineer.


66 / University of Colorado at Denver
The architectural engineering curriculum is recommended for those wishing to specialize (within the building industry) in engineering design, construction and contracting, or sales engineering. The architectural engineering student may select any of three areas of specialization offered: construction engineering, environmental engineering, or structural engineering.
Specialization in construction is for students planning a career in contracting and building construction. This program involves courses in construction management, planning and scheduling techniques, cost accounting, estimating and pricing, building materials, and construction methods.
Students interested in environmental engineering may concentrate their efforts in the fields of illumination and electrical systems design, heating-ventilating-air conditioning systems design, sanitation and water supply, or acoustics.
The third area of specialization is for those interested in the design of structural systems for buildings. Courses available are structural analysis; statically indeterminate structures; and steel, concrete, and timber design.
The five-year course leading to a B.S. degree in architectural engineering and a B.S. degree in business offers opportunity to complement the architectural engineering background with study in one of the major areas of business administration, such as personnel and business management, marketing, and finance.
Approximately one-half of the architectural engineering program is available at UCD under the Department of Civil Engineering. Students wishing to complete the architectural engineering program must apply to the University of Colorado at Boulder. The complete curriculum and descriptions of courses may be found in the University of Colorado at Boulder Catalog.

CHEMICAL ENGINEERING
David W. Hubly, Coordinator
Admission to this program must be approved by the department at Boulder.
Meeting the crisis in oil and energy, cleaning up the water and air, producing new and better materials to replace those that are limited or scarce—these are jobs in which one will find the chemical engineer.
Chemical plants (including refineries and gasification plants) convert natural resources into industrial and consumer products. Among their products are many that often are not identified with chemical engineering—oils, metals, glass, plastic, rubber, paints, soaps and detergents, foods, beverages, synthetic and natural fibers, nuclear and exotic fuels, medicines, and many others.
The department, located at the Boulder campus, is very much interested in research directed toward ecologically sound development of chemical processes. It is also working on energy problems and is stressing problems of energy conversion in its instructional program.
Many essentials of life originate in chemical engineering. Recycling of wastes and resources is not a new idea in chemical engineering but a long-standing principle. Since the earth now is perceived as a self-renewing system, intelligent generalization of the recycle theory to the entire cycle of natural resources is a challenge and opportunity for chemical engineers. Cleaning up pollution from chemical plants and from other sources is largely a chemical engineering problem. The chemical engineer efficiently uses and conserves natural resources to create valuable end products and to preserve environmental values.
Thus, chemical engineering continually changes and progresses. The Department of Chemical Engineering at the Boulder campus therefore helps students to prepare to be immediately valuable to industry and eventually to lead future developments in industry and research. Whether they plan to go into industry or on to graduate work,


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 67
students are urged to watch, understand, and enjoy the sparkle and interplay of new ideas and new technologies.
The complete chemical engineering program is not available at UCD. However, for new first-year students, approximately one-half of the program is available. Students wishing to complete this program should apply to the University of Colorado at Boulder. Also, students must arrange to take Ch.E. 212 (Chemical Engineering Material and Energy Balances) concurrently in Boulder during the spring semester of their sophomore year or it will delay graduation by a year. The complete curriculum, degree requirements, and descriptions of courses may be found in the University of Colorado at Boulder Catalog. Students interested in chemical engineering but who are unable to consider full-time, day-time study in Boulder should discuss alternative programs with the coordinator.

CIVIL ENGINEERING
William C. Hughes, Chairman
Civil engineering is generally the broadest field of engineering studied in American universities today. Civil engineering offers an interesting and highly challenging career to the student interested in the design and construction of buildings, bridges, dams, aqueducts, and other structures; in transportation systems including highways, canals, pipe lines, airports, rapid transit lines, railroads, and harbor facilities; in the transmission of water and control of rivers; in the development of water resources for urban use, industry, and land reclamation; in the regulation of water quality through water purification and proper waste treatment; in the construction industry; and in general in the rapidly expanding problems concerned with mankind’s physical environment and the growth of cities. Furthermore, students educated in civil engineering frequently find rewarding employment in other fields: for example, in aerospace structures, electric power generation, city planning, the process industries, industrial engineering, business management and law or medicine (after appropriate education in law or medical school). The breadth of the civil engineering undergraduate program provides an excellent educational background for many fields of endeavor.
The curriculum is designed to give the student a broad knowledge of the basic engineering sciences of chemistry, mathematics (including differential equations), physics, mechanics (including fluid mechanics and soil mechanics), electrical circuits, and thermodynamics. In addition, it includes a minimum of 18 semester hours in social-humanistic studies.
Specialized training is achieved through certain required courses, followed by more advanced civil engineering electives. By proper selection of these electives the senior student who wishes to specialize may emphasize any of the four major areas of civil engineering: structures, water resources, transportation, or geotechnical engineering. To be awarded the B.S. degree, a student must have at least a 2.0 average in all C.E. courses applied to the degree.
A five-year program has been arranged for students who wish to pursue a B.S. degree in civil engineering and a B.S. degree in business.
A student interested in a premedical option should consult with an adviser and the department chairman at the earliest possible time in order to make proper plans for an acceptable program. See Premedical Option.

COMPUTER SCIENCE
William D. Murray, Chairman
The goal of the computer science program is to educate men and women to take professional places in the burgeoning computer industry at any level accessible to a bachelor’s degree candidate in computer science. This means that graduates of the C.S. program should be able to:
1. Understand and use a wide variety of problemsolving algorithms, and on this basis be able to evaluate software for suitability in solving a wide range of problems, or if necessary, create software for solving the problems.
2. Write computer programs effectively and efficiently in several languages. Each graduate should be sufficiently well trained in some applications area so that the graduate understands the common conventions and basic theory of that discipline, and can communicate effectively with the professionals in that discipline who need programming help.
3. Understand computer hardware and software systems. Each graduate should be sufficiently well trained to understand hardware at the systems level and be able to make an intelligent choice of hardware needed for various classes of problems. The graduate should also be competent to understand software systems (compilers, operating systems, applications packages, etc.) for the same purpose.
4. Enter any recognized graduate school for further training if the graduate has shown sufficient scholastic performance.
The field of study encompasses a new, but very substantial, body of knowledge dealing with the design of computers and computer systems; the application of computers in data processing, problem solving, and similar kinds of activities; an understanding of computer languages; and the design, writing, and testing of software in various languages to be used in various applications. The computer scientist not only uses the computer for immediate ends, but also is capable of understanding and using the underlying theoretical bases perhaps to create new systems, new designs, and new languages. Included in the field of knowledge are artificial intelligence (how can the computer be programmed to recognize patterns and relationships in and among sets of data?) and automata theory (formal models of computation, formal grammars, and the understanding of what things are and are not computable). Nonetheless, programming is a substantial part of most computer scientists’ work, and the development of professional skill in this activity is one of the most important objectives of the program.
Computer Science Curriculum
The new curriculum in computer science is planned to give breadth of background in computer science after establishing a solid foundation in mathematics and science. Each student will take electives emphasizing computer-


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 69
related areas. Those who wish to study computers with a heavier emphasis on engineering should consider the electrical engineering program with electives from computer science.
To be awarded the B.S. in C.S. a student must have at least a 2.0 average in all C.S. and E.E. courses applied to the degree. To be in good standing in the program (see Policy on Academic Progress in the College of Engineering introductory section of this bulletin) a student must maintain a 2.0 average in all C.S. and E.E. courses attempted.

Students should refer to the section on Academic Policies of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. In addition to planning for sequences of courses based on prerequisites, students should plan to complete all courses at a given level (freshman, sophomore, etc.) before taking those at the next level.
1. Of the 24 hours of required social-humanistic electives, a student must have 6 hours of communications, a minimum of 6 hours in literature and a minimum of 6 hours in social sciences. At least two courses must be upper division courses. Independent study is allowed for no more than one social-humanistic elective course. Communications consists of a course in written communications, spoken communications, or foreign language at the 200 level or above. Students must also pass Engl. 102 with a C or better, or must pass an equivalency test and take a second communications course. See the section describing the Social Humanistic Content of the Engineering Curriculum in the College of Engineering and Applied Science introductory section of this bulletin.
2. Or Chem. 113 or Ch.E. 210.
3. Area electives (18 semester hours) are to form a coherent group of courses that will give the student a comprehensive introduction to an area closely related to computers or computing. Examples are engineering, mathematics, science, or business. The list of area electives must be approved in advance by the student's adviser. Twelve of the eighteen hours must be in upper division courses.
4. General electives are selected from any courses acceptable for credit in the College of Engineering and Applied Science (i.e., skills courses, performance courses, and remedial courses are not acceptable).
ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
William D. Murray, Chairman
The professional possibilities in electrical engineering include teaching and research in a university; research and development of new electrical or electronic devices, instruments, or products; production and quality-control of electrical products for private industry or government; design or operations in the electrical power industry; and sales or management for a private firm or branch of government.
The electrical engineering course of study at UCD begins with principles of physics, chemistry, and mathematics and follows with an early, intensive training in the theory and laboratory application of electrical circuits, electromagnetic and transmission theory, electrical machines and transformers, and electronics. Throughout the entire course of study, students reinforce their understanding of the theory in well-equipped laboratories.
Students are encouraged to develop interests outside of their electrical engineering specialty, thus providing themselves with a well-rounded background and a sense of awareness and responsibility for their later role in society.


70 / University of Colorado at Denver
They are urged to attend meetings of their student professional society, where practicing engineers from many engineering specialties speak of their experiences.
The areas of specialization that electrical engineering students may enter upon graduation are so numerous it is impossible for the undergraduate training to cover them in detail. Intense specialization may be left to additional training graduates may receive when they assume positions with industrial firms, or acquired by specialization through graduate work beyond the bachelor’s degree. Students who have earned a B average or better in their undergraduate work and who have elected courses in their senior year that strengthen their mathematical background may decide to undertake graduate study. The curriculum in electrical engineering is designed to make it possible for the graduating senior with high scholarship to finish a master’s degree in electrical engineering in about one additional full year of work at any of the nation’s major universities.
Electrical Engineering Curriculum
The new curriculum for electrical engineering is shown below. This program refleas the requirements for those who will receive the B.S. in E.E. on or after May 1987. Students who will graduate after May 1984 and before May 1987 will be permitted to satisfy either the new curriculum or the older curriculum published in the 1983-84 bulletin of the University of Colorado at Denver. Students in this category should note that they must satisfy either curriculum in total, rather than selecting parts from each.
To be awarded the B.S. in E.E. a student must have at least a 2.0 average in all E.E. and C.S. courses applied toward the degree. To be in good standing in the program (see Policy on Academic Progress in the College of Engineering introductory section of this bulletin), a student must maintain at least a 2.0 grade-point average in all
E.E. and C.S. courses attempted.
Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
The joint degree in electrical engineering and computer science is being replaced by the degree in computer science. Those students who wish to study electrical engineering with a strong computer emphasis can do so by taking computer science courses as professional electives in the electrical engineering program.
Business Option
Students wishing to complete a B.S. degree in electrical engineering and a B.S. degree in business should not start the business program until their fourth year, with the exception of electing Econ. 201 and 202 for two of their social-humanistic electives. Students with a B average may wish to consider obtaining a master’s degree in business administration. For both of these programs, students should refer to the College of Engineering and Applied Science introductory section of this bulletin.
Premedical Option
A program has been developed which permits the student to satisfy the entrance requirements for medical
school, such as those of the University of Colorado, while earning a B.S. in electrical engineering.
Medical schools typically require that applicants have completed two semesters of general chemistry, two semesters of organic chemistry, and two semesters of general biology, all with laboratories. A course in English composition is recommended.
More specific information on medical school requirements may be obtained at the office of the Health Careers Adviser at UCD.

Students should refer to the section on Academic Policies of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. In addition to planning for sequences of courses based on prerequisites, students should plan to complete sophomore level courses before taking junior level courses and should have completed their junior level E.E. courses before starting their 400-level E.E. electives.
1. Of the 24 hours of required social-humanistic electives, a student must have a minimum of 6 hours in communications, 6 hours in literature, and a minimum of 6 hours in social sciences. At least two courses must be upper division courses. Independent study is allowed for no more than one social-humanistic elective course. Communications consists of a course in written communications, spoken communications, or foreign language at the 200 level or above. Students must also pass English 102 with a C or better, or must pass an equivalency test and take a second communications course.
2. Or Chem. 113 or Ch.E. 210.
3. The mechanics requirement may be satisfied by the 3-hour course, C.E. 313, or the 6-hour sequence of C.E. 212 and C.E. 311.
4. For the E.E. Specialty courses a student must take 3 of: E.E. 413-3, Control Systems; E.E. 416-3, Energy Conversion II; E.E. 422-3, Electronics III; E.E. 424-3, Communication Theory; E.E. 459-3, Computer Organization. Each student will take 6 semester hours of Senior Design Laboratories in E.E. specialties.
5. Professional electives are to be selected from upper division courses in business, computer science, engineering, mathematics, or physics.
ENGINEERING PHYSICS
William R. Simmons, Coordinator
Admission to this program must be approved by the department at the Boulder campus.
The engineering physics curriculum gives students a thorough foundation in the physical principles underlying most of engineering. The large number of engineering electives which may be incorporated in the curriculum makes it possible for students to prepare themselves for professional work or graduate school in a wide variety of fields. Because the program is particularly flexible, students should be aware that proper preparation for their professional field will require careful selection of engineering electives. Students are urged to prepare, in consultation with the departmental coordinator, a coherent plan of courses to meet their professional objectives.
During the freshman and sophomore years, the student must attain a thorough training in mathematics and a grounding in fundamental methods and principles of the physical sciences.
During the junior and senior years the work in physics
is amplified to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the various branches of physics such as nuclear physics, atomic physics, electronics, thermodynamics, mechanics, electricity, and magnetism. Individual initiative and resourcefulness are stressed. For purposes of Federal Civil Service requirements this degree is an engineering degree from an accredited College of Engineering. Students who plan to become registered professional engineers should check the requirements for registration in their state before choosing their engineering electives.
It is recommended that students preparing for Graduate School also prepare for its foreign language requirement as part of their undergraduate curriculum.
Applied Physics Option
It is also possible to earn the degree Bachelor of Science (Engineering Physics) with an applied physics option. This option differs from the regular engineering physics degree primarily in that fewer advanced theoretical physics courses are required and in their place a selection of applied science courses is required. This option should not be selected by students intending to pursue graduate study in physics, but it is appropriate for students intending to pursue graduate work or employment in related fields such as geophysics, environmental science, oceanography, nuclear engineering, medicine, and law. Students intending to pursue this option should consult the coordinator by the beginning of their junior year regarding the electives which they wish to propose. The 24 hours of electives in pure or applied natural science must be approved by the engineering physics advising committee, which is located on the Boulder campus. The committee will consider the proposed courses relative to the student’s stated educational and/or professional objectives. At least 30 semester hours of credit must be earned after the student’s proposed program is approved.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
Ralph C. Koeller, Chairman
The mechanical engineering curriculum begins with a strong emphasis on mathematics, physics, and chemistry. It continues with a concentration in engineering sciences such as solid and fluid mechanics; thermodynamics, heat and mass transport; materials; and systems analysis and control. It concludes with laboratory and design courses which demonstrate the ways in which scientific knowledge is applied in the design and development of useful devices and processes.
The mechanical engineering program may be roughly subdivided into two-year groupings. In the first two years, the program emphasizes the fundamentals of those engineering sciences that are essential for an understanding of most branches of professional engineering. In the last two years of the program, the department provides technical electives for professional concentrations in the following areas:
Thermodynamics Heat transfer Fluid mechanics Solid mechanics Electromechanical systems
Design
Power
Dynamics and controls Materials science Thermomechanical systems
All of the required courses for mechanical engineering are offered at UCD. To be awarded the B.S. (M.E.) a

Linda K. Dixon, Acting Dean
INFORMATION ABOUT THE SCHOOL
The Graduate School is a University-wide body which authorizes programs within its constituent colleges and schools. At UCD, Business and Administration (except the MBA Executive program), Education, Engineering, Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Music are colleges or schools whose graduate programs are offered through the Graduate School. In concept, there is a single Graduate School regardless of campus. In practice, most master’s-level programs are specific to the campus where the student is admitted, insofar as particular options and advisers are concerned.
Doctoral-level programs in a discipline are viewed as the responsibility of the entire University community of that discipline. At the present time all Ph.D. programs are coordinated through the corresponding Boulder department. However, in a number of disciplines most or all course work for the Ph.D. can be completed at Denver and the research adviser may be a member of the UCD faculty. Some departments in which this is the case are communication and theatre, electrical engineering, and civil engineering. In other disciplines, a significant portion of the course work required for the Ph.D. degree may be taken at UCD. Persons interested in pursuing doctoral-level work should consult with the appropriate discipline graduate adviser.
Anyone wishing further information not given in this bulletin should contact the Dean of the Graduate School, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.

Facilities for Graduate Study and Research at UCD
Facilities for research in many fields are available at UCD as well as specialized institutes, seminars, and meetings of national standing.
UCD Computing Services
Computing Services at the University of Colorado at Denver supports the instructional and research needs of the University, using both local and remote services. Through a campus-wide network, students, faculty and staff have both batch and timesharing access to UCD’s PRIME 750 minicomputer, a Control Data Corporation Cyber 720, or a Digital Equipment Corporation VAX 11/780. The Cyber and VAX machines are operated by the University Computing Center in Boulder. The PRIME 750 is operated by Computing Services at UCD and is located in the East Classroom Building.
Software available includes many programming languages such as FORTRAN, BASIC, PASCAL and COBOL, as well as a library of mathematical and statistical packages and other applications programs. Computing assistants and professional programmers and analysts employed by the Center are available to assist members of the UCD community in meeting their computing needs.
The Graduate Student at UCD
An average of 2,274 students are enrolled in graduate programs at UCD each fall and spring semester, and an additional 2,185 special students take graduate courses. Of these, approximately 54 percent are part-time students.
Faculty
The faculty operating in these programs is mainly housed at UCD, although resources of other University of Colorado campuses are used.
Financial Aid for Graduate Study
SCHOLARSHIPS AND FELLOWSHIPS
The University of Colorado administers various forms of financial aid for graduate students: fellowships, scholarships, and a number of awards from outside agencies.
The Graduate School offers two types of assistance: Colorado Doctoral Fellowships and Colorado Graduate Grants.
Special fellowships and scholarships also are available for study in certain departments. Colorado Graduate Grants are available to students who are residents of the State of Colorado and can show demonstrated need. For details contact the Graduate School office.
Applications for fellowships, scholarships, and grants are due in the department before the announced department deadline. Fellowship awards are announced about March 15; Colorado Graduate Grant awards are announced each semester for the following semester.
GRADUATE STUDENT TEACHING APPOINTMENTS
Many departments employ graduate students as part-time instructors or teaching assistants. The instructorship
is reserved for those advanced graduate students already possessing an appropriate M.A. degree who may be independently responsible for the conduct of a section or course. Payment for these teaching appointments in 1983-84 was: one-half time instructor, $8,000 for the academic year; one-half time teaching assistant, $6,400 for the academic year.
A half-time appointment for an instructor is considered to be equal to 6 class contact hours; a half-time teaching assistant is appointed for 20 hours per week. Compensation is based on the number of appointment hours per week. Nonresident students employed as assistants may or may not be eligible for the nonresident tuition differential stipend for their first-year appointment as an assistant only. Exceptions extending beyond the first year must be approved in advance by the respective dean. Teaching assistants and instructors must be enrolled students in good standing for the full period of their appointment.
RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIPS
Research activities provide opportunities for graduate students to obtain part-time work as research assistants in many departments. General fund research assistantships are subject to the one-year rule on eligibility for waiver of the nonresident tuition differential. Nonresident students who are appointed as research assistants in nongeneral fund accounts may or may not be eligible for resident tuition rates. Assistants must be enrolled students.
LOAN FUNDS
Graduate students wishing to apply for long-term loans through the National Direct Student Loan Program and for part-time jobs through the college work-study program should submit an Application for Financial Aid to the Office of Financial Aid by March 1. This office also provides short-term loan assistance to students who have completed one or more semesters in residence. Short-term loans are designed to supplement inadequate personal funds and to provide for emergencies. Applicants should go directly to the Office of Financial Aid.
EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
The University maintains an employment service in the Office of Financial Aid to help students obtain part-time work either through conventional employment or through the college work-study program.
Students employed by the University are hired solely on the basis of merit and fitness, a policy which avoids favor or discrimination because of race, color, creed, sex, age, handicap, or national origin. Students are also referred to prospective employers in accordance with this policy.
INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION
The Office of International Education expedites the exchange of students and faculty, entertains foreign visitors, promotes special relationships with foreign universities, and acts as adviser for Fulbright and other scholarships.
The office also arranges study abroad programs. Students remain enrolled at the University of Colorado while taking regular courses in the foreign universities. A B average with the equivalent of two years of college-level work in


76 / University of Colorado at Denver
the appropriate language is required. There are also occasional summer programs offering academic credit.
Peace Corps information may be obtained from the Office of International Education.
For additional information contact the Office of International Education, Boulder campus, 492-7741.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION General Requirements
Students may be admitted to the Graduate School in either of the two categories described below.
Admission to the Graduate School is not admission to candidacy for an advanced degree. A student who wishes to become a candidate for a degree must make special application at the time and in the manner prescribed by the requirements for the degree sought.
A student who is granted admission must reflect in a moral and ethical sense a personal background acceptable to the University.
The University reserves the right to deny admission to applicants whose total credentials reflect an inability to assume those obligations of performance and behavior deemed essential by the University and relevant to any of its lawful missions, processes, and functions as an educational institution.
REGULAR DEGREE STUDENTS
Qualified students are admitted to regular degree status by the appropriate department. In addition to departmental approval, an applicant for admission as a regular degree student must:
1. Hold a baccalaureate degree from a college or university of recognized standing, or have done work equivalent to that required for such a degree and equivalent to the degree given at this University.
2. Show promise of ability to pursue advanced study and research, as judged by his or her previous scholastic record.
3. Have had adequate preparation to enter upon graduate study in the field chosen.
4. Have at least a 2.75 undergraduate grade-point average on all work taken.
5. Meet additional requirements for admission as established by major departments.
Regular degree students must maintain at least a 3.0 grade-point average each semester or summer term on all work taken, whether it is to be applied toward the intended advanced degree or not. Students who fail to maintain this standard of performance will be subject to suspension from the Graduate School.
Pass/Fail Grades. In order to permit a meaningful evaluation of an applicant’s scholastic record, not more than 10 percent of those credit hours that are relevant to the intended field of graduate study shall have been earned with pass/fail grades, nor more than 20 percent overall. Applicants whose academic record contains a larger percentage of pass/fail credits must submit suitable additional evidence that they possess the required scholastic
ability. If the applicant does not submit satisfactory additional evidence, he or she can be admitted only as a provisional student.
PROVISIONAL DEGREE STUDENTS
Applicants who do not meet the requirements for admission as regular degree students may be admitted as provisional degree students upon the recommendation of the major department. With the concurrence of the dean of the Graduate School, a department may admit provisional students for a probationary term, which may not normally exceed one academic year. At the end of the probationary period, provisional degree students must either be admitted to regular degree status or be dropped from the graduate program.
Credit earned by persons in provisional degree status may count toward a degree at this University.
Provisional degree students are required to maintain a
3.0 grade-point average or higher, according to the terms of their provisional admission, each semester or summer term on all work taken, whether or not it is to be applied toward the advanced degree sought. Students who fail to maintain such a standard of performance, will be subject to suspension from the Graduate School.
Note: All provisional applicants must take the Graduate Record Examination and submit scores as part of the application.
Application Procedures
Graduate students who expect to study at UCD should contact the UCD Graduate School office concerning procedures for forwarding completed applications.
An applicant for admission must present a completed Application Form (Parts I and II), which may be obtained from the UCD Graduate School office, and two official transcripts from each university attended. The application must be accompanied by a nonrefundable application fee of $20 (check or money order) when the application is submitted. No application will be processed unless this fee is paid. Many departments require scores from the Graduate Record Examination, and most departments require three or four letters of recommendation.
When a prospective degree student applies for admission, the chairman of each department or a committee named for the purpose shall decide whether the applicant shall be admitted and shall make that decision known to the Office of Admissions and Records, which will inform the student. Persons not wishing to work toward an advanced degree are referred to as special students (below).
A completed application must be in the office of the major department at least 60 days prior to the term for which admission is sought or earlier as may be required by the major department.
Students who wish to apply for a graduate student award for the academic year 1984-85, e.g., fellowship, scholarship, assistantship, etc., must file a completed application with the department before the announced departmental deadline (see previous section on financial aid).


Graduate School / 77
READMISSION OF FORMER AND SUSPENDED STUDENTS
Students who were previously admitted to a graduate degree program but who did not complete that degree and who have not been continuously registered at the University must:
1. Clarify their status with the department to determine their eligibility to return and pursue the same degree.
2. After receiving departmental approval, as indicated above, submit a former student application to the Office of Admissions before deadlines are passed for the term in which they expect to return to the University. Application deadlines are available from the department.
In some instances, students who have left the degree program to which they were formerly admitted must submit a new graduate application form and be reconsidered for admission by the department concerned.
Former students who wish to change from undergraduate to graduate status or from one major to another must complete the appropriate forms at the time they apply for readmission.
Students transferring from one campus to another must apply and be accepted to the new campus.
A student admitted to the Graduate School for the master’s program must reapply for admission for the doctoral program.
A suspended student is eligible to apply for readmission after one year. Approval or rejection of this application rests jointly with the student’s major department and the dean. In case of lack of agreement between the department and the dean or in case of appeal by the student, the final decision will be made by the Executive Committee.
FOREIGN APPLICANTS
Prospective foreign students should have completed applications on file in the Graduate School office prior to March 15 for summer and fall and August 1 for the spring semester. Application packet should include $50 fee, TOEFL scores, financial documentation, official English translation of all school records, and other documents as noted in the previous section on Application Procedures.
SENIORS IN THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO
A senior in this University who has satisfied the undergraduate residence requirements and who needs not more than 6 semester hours of advanced subjects and 12 credit points to meet his/her requirements for a bachelor’s degree, may be admitted to the Graduate School by special permission of the resident dean.
GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATIONS
At the option of any department, the Graduate Record Examination may be required of applicants for assistant-ships, or of any student before his or her status is determined.
Students who are applying for the fall semester take the GRE no later than the December testing date so that their scores will be available to the graduate awards selection committee. Four to six weeks should be allowed for GRE scores to be received by an institution.
Information regarding these examinations may be ob-
tained from the Graduate School office or the UCD Testing Center, or from the Educational Testing Service, Box 1502, Berkeley, California 94701, or Box 955, Princeton, New Jersey 08540.
OTHER GRADUATE QUALIFYING EXAMINATIONS
Students entering professional schools and special programs may obtain information at the Student Testing Center on the following examinations: Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT), Miller Analogies Test (MAT), Dopplet, and Law School Admissions Test (LSAT).
SPECIAL STUDENTS
A student not wishing to earn an advanced degree from the University of Colorado should apply to the Office of Admissions and Records, UCD, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202, or to the Office of the Dean of the Graduate School. Special students will be allowed to register only on the campus to which they have been admitted.
Special students desiring to pursue a graduate degree program at this University are encouraged to submit the complete graduate application and supporting credentials as soon as possible.
A department may recommend to the graduate dean the acceptance of as much as 8 hours of credit toward the requirements of a master’s degree for courses taken either as a student at another recognized graduate school, as a special student at the University, or both. In addition, the department may recommend to the graduate dean the acceptance of credit for courses taken as a special student at this University during the term for which the student applied for admission to the Graduate School, provided such admission date was delayed through no fault of the student. A grade of B or better must be obtained in any course work transferred in this manner.
REGISTRATION
Course Work and Examinations
On the regular registration days of each semester, students who have been admitted to the Graduate School and who expect to study in the Graduate School are required to complete appropriate registration procedures.
Students should register for classes the semester they are accepted into Graduate School. If unable to attend that semester they must notify the department which has accepted them and submit the necessary forms to the Office of Admissions and Records at UCD in order to attend the following semester.
Changes in Registration
A student who wishes to drop a course or take it for no credit should follow the drop/add standard procedure (see current Schedule of Courses). Note that after the tenth week of classes a graduate student may not drop, add, or change a course to no credit without presenting a letter to the dean of the Graduate School, UCD, stating the exceptional circumstances which justify the change. This letter, endorsed by the instructor of the course, must


78 / University of Colorado at Denver
accompany the properly signed and completed drop/add card or no-credit option form.
Withdrawal
A graduate student who desires to withdraw from the University must apply to the dean of the Graduate School for permission to withdraw in good standing. A student who discontinues attendance in a course without official withdrawal will be marked as having failed the course.
Master’s Thesis or Report
Graduate students working toward master’s degrees, if they expect to present a thesis or M.Ed. report in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree, must register for thesis for a minimum of 4 semester hours or a maximum of 6 semester hours, or for M.Ed. report for 2 semester hours. The student may register for any specific number of hours in any semester of residence, but the total number of hours for all semesters must equal the number of credits the student expects to receive for the thesis or report. The final grade will be withheld until the thesis or report is completed. If the thesis or report is not completed at the end of the term in which the student is so registered, an in progress (IP) will be reported. (The student may not register again for any portion of thesis credit on which an IP grade has been submitted.)
Limitation of Registration
FULL LOAD
A graduate student will be considered to be carrying a full load during a regular semester for purposes of determining residence credit if the student is registered for not fewer than 5 semester hours in work numbered 500 or above, or at least 8 semester hours in a combination of undergraduate/graduate/professional courses work acceptable for graduate credit, or any number of thesis hours.
A maximum of two-thirds of a semester of resident credit may be earned during the summer if a student registers for three semester hours of work in courses numbered 500 or above, 5 semester hours of other graduate work, or any number of thesis hours.
For the number of hours required for financial aid see Financial Aid at the University of Colorado at Denver in the General Information section of this bulletin. A graduate student may contact the resident dean’s office for information on the appeal process regarding the full load requirement for financial aid purposes.
MAXIMUM LOAD
No graduate student may receive graduate credit toward a degree for more than 15 hours in a regular semester.
The maximum number of graduate credits that may be applied toward a degree during a summer term at UCD is 10 hours per 10-week summer term.
TUITION AND FEES
The schedule of tuition and fees is given in the General Information section of this bulletin.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ADVANCED DEGREES
Quality of Graduate Work
Although the work for advanced degrees is specified partly in terms of credit hours, an advanced degree will not be conferred merely for the completion of a specified period of residence and the passing of a given number of courses. Students should not expea to get from formal courses all the training, knowledge, and grasp of ideas necessary to meet the requirements for an advanced degree. They should work on their own initiative, reading widely and thoughtfully, reaching their own conclusions, and acquiring a sense of values, perspective, and proportion.
All studies offered for credit toward an advanced degree (except those in deficiencies) must be of graduate status.
A student is expected to maintain at least a B average in all work attempted while enrolled in the Graduate School.
For the Ph.D., a course mark below B is unsatisfactory and will not be counted toward fulfilling the minimum requirements for the degree.
A student who fails to do satisfactory work will be subject to suspension from the Graduate School by the dean with the approval of the major department.
Appeal may be made to the Executive Committee of the Graduate School. The committee’s decision shall be final. A suspended student is eligible to apply for readmission after one year. Approval or rejection of this application rests jointly with the student’s major department and the dean. In case of lack of agreement between the department and the dean or in case of appeal by the student, the final decision will be made by the Executive Committee.
Grading System
The standing of a student in work intended for an advanced degree is to be indicated by the marks A, B, and C.
A — Superior, 4 credit points for each credit hour.
B — Good, 3 credit points for each credit hour.
C — Fair, 2 credit points for each credit hour.
Work receiving the lowest passing grade, D, may not be counted toward a degree, nor may it be accepted for the removal of deficiencies. Marks below B are not accepted for the doctoral degree.
An IF or an IW grade may be given for incomplete work at the discretion of the instructor. For details, refer to the discussion of the uniform grading system. The grade of IP (in progress) will be given for continuing thesis work and will be valid until the thesis is completed.
Graduate students may register for undergraduate courses on a pass/fail basis; however, graduate credit will not be awarded, and such courses cannot be applied toward a graduate degree.
Repeating a Course
A graduate student who receives a grade of C, D, or F in a course may repeat that course once, upon written recommendation to the resident dean by the chairman of


Graduate School / 79
the student’s advisory committee and major department, provided the course has not previously been applied toward a degree.
In calculating a student’s grade-point average for Graduate School purposes, the grade for a repeated course will substitute for the old grade. Grades earned in courses taken as an undergraduate or as a special student, as well as grades earned in first and second year foreign language courses, will not be used in calculating the Graduate School grade-point average. However, all grades received will appear on the student’s transcript.
Change of Department or Major
A graduate student wishing to change department or major must submit a new Part I and Part II of the graduate application to the new department or school and request the former department to forward recommendations and credentials.
Use of English
A student who is noticeably deficient in the use and spelling of the English language may not obtain an advanced degree from the University of Colorado. The satisfaction of this requirement depends not so much upon the ability to pass formal tests, although these may be demanded, as it does upon the habitual use of good English in all oral and written work. Ability to use the language with precision and distinction should be cultivated as an attainment of major importance.
Each department will judge the qualifications of its advanced students in the use of English. Reports, examinations, and speech will be considered in estimating the candidate’s proficiency.
MASTER’S DEGREE
A student regularly admitted to the Graduate School and later accepted as a candidate for the degree Master of Arts, Master of Science, or other master’s degree will be recommended for the degree only after the following requirements have been met.
In general, only graduates of an approved institution who have a thorough preparation for their proposed field of study and who do graduate work of high quality are able to attain the degree with the minimum amount of work specified below. All studies offered toward the minimum requirement for the degree must be of graduate rank. Necessary additional work required to make up deficiencies or prerequisites may be partly or entirely undergraduate courses.
The requirements stated below are minimum requirements; additional conditions set by the department will be found in the announcements of separate departments. Any department may make further regulations not inconsistent with the general rules.
Minimum Requirement
The minimum requirement of graduate work for the degree Master of Arts or Master of Science may be fulfilled by following either Plan I or Plan II below.
Plan I: By presenting 24 semester hours of graduate work, including a thesis. At least 12 semester hours of this work must be at the 500 level or above.
Plan II: By presenting 30 semester hours of graduate work, without a thesis. At least 16 semester hours of this work must be at the 500 level or above.
Plan II does not represent a free option for the student. A candidate for the master’s degree may be allowed to select Plan II only on the recommendation of the department concerned.
Graduate Credit
Graduate credit is given for courses which are listed at the 500 level or above and which are offered by those colleges or schools that are members of the Graduate School, or which have otherwise been approved by the dean of the Graduate School. No assurance can be given that work taken by a student will count toward a higher degree unless the student has the approval of the department.
Not all courses listed are available at any one time; some of them are given in alternate years.
Courses taken during the fall semester 1975 and thereafter will have graduate rank if they are taught by members of the Graduate School faculty and are in one of the following two categories:
1. Courses within the major department at the 500 level or above.
2. Courses outside the major department at any level, provided they are approved for graduate rank for a specific degree plan by the faculty of the degree-granting program.
This does not change the minimum number of courses that must be taken at the 500 level or above. However, as a result, most students who include 400-level courses of other departments in their program will not exceed those minimum requirements for graduation.
Field of Study
Studies leading to a master’s degree may be divided between major and minor subjects at the discretion of the faculty of the degree-granting program.
Status
After students have made a satisfactory record in this University for at least one semester or summer term and after they have removed any deficiencies that were determined at the time of admission or by qualifying examinations or otherwise, they should confer with their major department and request that a decision be made on their status. This definite status must be set by the major department before students may make application for admission to candidacy for an advanced degree.
Students who are inadequately prepared must make up without credit toward a graduate degree all prerequisites required by the department concerned.
Language Requirements
Candidates must have such knowledge of ancient and modern languages as each department requires. See special departmental requirements.


80 / University of Colorado at Denver
Credit by Transfer
Resident graduate work of high quality done in a recognized graduate school elsewhere and coming within the time limit may be accepted up to a limited amount, provided it is recommended by the department concerned and approved by the dean of the Graduate School.
All work accepted by transfer must come within the 5-year time limit or be validated by special examination.
The maximum amount of work that may be transferred to this University is 8 semester hours.
Credit will not be transferred until the student has established in the Graduate School of this University a satisfactory record of at least one semester in residence; such transfer will not reduce the residence requirement at this University, but it may reduce the amount of work to be done in formal courses. Requests for transfer of credit to be applied toward an advanced degree must be made on the form specified for this purpose and submitted to the Graduate School by the beginning of the semester prior to that in which the student will be graduated.
Work already applied toward a master’s degree received from another institution cannot be accepted for transfer toward the master’s degree at the University of Colorado; extension work completed at another institution cannot be transferred; and correspondence work, except to make up deficiencies, is not recognized.
Excess undergraduate credits from another institution may not be transferred to the Graduate School. Seniors in this University may, however, transfer a limited amount of advanced resident work (up to 8 semester hours) provided such work:
1. Is completed with distinction in the senior year at this University.
2. Comes within the five-year time limit.
3. Has not been applied toward another degree.
4. Is recommended for transfer by the department concerned and is approved by the dean of the Graduate School.
Requests for transfer of credit to be applied toward an advanced degree must be made on the form specified for this purpose and submitted to the Graduate School by the beginning of the semester prior to that in which the student will be graduated. For more information contact the Graduate School office.
Residence
In general, the residence requirements can be met only by residence at this University for at least two semesters or at least three summer terms. For full residence a student must be registered within the time designated at the beginning of a semester and must carry the equivalent of not fewer than 5 semester hours of work in courses numbered 500 or above, or at least a combination of other course work acceptable for graduate credit. See Limitation of Registration, Full Load, for requirements for full residence credit during the summer. A student who is noticeably deficient in his/her general training, or in the specific preparation indicated by each department as prerequisite to graduate work, cannot expect to obtain a degree in the minimum time specified.
Assistants and other employees of the University may fulfill the residence requirements of one year in two semesters, provided their duties do not require more than half time. Full-time employees may not satisfy the residence requirements of one year in fewer than four semesters.
Admission to Candidacy
A student who wishes to become a candidate for a master’s degree must file application in the dean’s office not later than 10 weeks prior to the completion of the comprehensive final examination. The number of hours to be presented for the degree must be determined before this application may be filed. See previous section on Status.
This application must be made on forms obtainable at the dean's office and in various departments and must be signed by the major department, certifying that the student’s work is satisfactory and that the program outlined in the application meets the requirements set for the student.
A student on Graduate School probation is not eligible to be awarded a degree until he or she is removed from probation.
Thesis Requirements
A thesis, which may be of a research, expository, critical, or creative type, is required of every master’s degree candidate under Plan I. Every thesis presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for an advanced degree must:
1. Deal with a definite topic related to the major field.
2. Be based upon independent study and investigation.
3. Represent the equivalent of from 4 to 6 semester hours of work.
4. Receive the approval of the major department not later than 30 days (in some departments, 90 days) before the commencement at which the degree is to be conferred.
5. Be essentially complete at the time the comprehensive final examination is given.
6. Comply in mechanical features with specifications obtainable from the Graduate School.
Two weeks prior to the date on which the degree is to be conferred, two formally approved, printed or typewritten copies of the thesis must be filed in the Graduate School. The thesis must be complete with abstract.
All theses must be signed by the thesis adviser and the second reader. All approved theses are kept on file in the library. The thesis binding fee must be paid at the Finance Office on the Denver campus when the thesis is deposited in the Graduate School.
Credit hours earned for the thesis will not be accepted toward the requirements for a degree unless such credit has previously been registered. A student working toward a master’s degree must register for thesis for a specific number of hours. The student may register for any specific number of hours in any semester of residence, but the total registered credit for thesis must total a minimum of 4 or a maximum of 6 semester hours, the total number of hours depending upon how much credit is to be given for the thesis.
The final grade will be withheld until the thesis or report is completed. An IP (in progress) will be reported


Graduate School / 81
for terms during which the student is registered for thesis prior to completion of the thesis.
Comprehensive Final Examinations
Each candidate for a master’s degree is required to take a comprehensive final examination after the other requirements for the degree have been completed. This examination may be given near the end of the candidate’s last semester of residence while he/she is still taking required courses for the degree, provided he/she is making satisfactory progress in those courses.
The following rules applying to the comprehensive final examination must be observed:
1. A student must be registered when he or she takes the examination.
2. Notice of the examination must be filed by the major department in the dean’s office at least three days in advance of the examination.
3. The examination is to be given by a committee of three graduate faculty members appointed by the department concerned in consultation with the dean.
4. The examination, which may be oral or written, or both, must cover the thesis, which should be essentially complete at the time, as well as other work done in the University in formal courses and seminars in the major field.
5. An examination in the minor work taken at this University is optional with the major and minor departments.
6. The examination must include all work presented for the degree not done in residence at the University of Colorado, whether in the major or minor field. The examination on transferred work will be given by representatives of the corresponding fields of study in this University.
7. A student who fails the comprehensive final examination may not attempt the examination again until at least three months have elapsed and until such work as may be prescribed by the examining committee has been completed. The student may retake the examination only once.
Master’s Thesis or Report Credit
Every graduate student working toward a master’s degree who expects to present a thesis or M.Ed. report in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree must register for thesis for a minimum of 4 semester hours or a maximum of 6 semester hours, or for M.Ed. report for 2 semester hours. The student may register for any specific number of hours in any semester of residence, but the total number of hours for all semesters must equal the number of credits the student expects to receive for the thesis or report. The final grade will be withheld until the thesis or report is completed. If the thesis or report is not completed at the end of the term in which the student is so registered, an in progress (IP) will be reported. (The student may not register again for any portion of thesis credit on which an IP grade has been submitted.)
Supplemental Examinations
Supplemental examinations should be simply an ex-
tension of the original examination and given immediately. If the student fails the supplemental examination, three months must elapse before he or she may attempt the comprehensive examination again.
Course Examinations
The regular written examinations of each semester except the last must be taken. Course examinations of the last semester, which come after the comprehensive final examination has been passed, may be omitted with the consent of the instructor.
Time Limit
All work, including the comprehensive final examination, should be completed within five years or six successive summers. Work done earlier will not be accepted for the degree unless validated by a special examination. Candidates for the master’s degree are expected to complete their work with reasonable continuity.

Graduate Programs
ACCOUNTING
Refer to the Graduate School of Business Administration section of this bulletin.
ANTHROPOLOGY
The master’s program in anthropology offers general, flexible training in anthropology along with topical specialization and the opportunity to specialize in interdisciplinary, applied areas: medical anthropology and community and urban anthropology. The medical anthropology track is intended to serve students preparing for careers and those with established careers in the health care


82 / University of Colorado at Denver
professions and related fields. Similarly, the community and urban anthropology track is intended to serve those who seek to employ anthropological concepts and methods of community analysis in public administration, development, planning, and allied fields. Working with an advisory committee, each student will tailor an individual program of studies around courses and seminars in anthropology and allied disciplines. These programs will culminate in either a master’s paper-Plan II, or master’s thesis-Plan I. A primary goal of the program is to produce graduates who are capable of understanding and proficient at resolving, in cooperation with others, the many problems of complex societies; consequently, a premium will be placed on interdisciplinary instruction and practical exercises in the design and implementation of research in a variety of settings.
More detailed descriptions of the options available within the M.A. program may be obtained by writing to the Director of Graduate Studies in Anthropology, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th St., Denver, CO 80202.
Requirements for Admission
Admission to the master’s program in anthropology is open to any holder of a baccalaureate degree, not necessarily in anthropology, provided he or she meets the following requirements: (1) general requirements for admission to the Graduate School (2.75 or better grade-point average for all undergraduate studies); and (2) knowledge of the fundamentals of anthropology. Applicants will be expected to have had a general introductory course in anthropology and secondary courses in ethnology, archaeology, linguistics, and physical anthropology or be able to demonstrate a mastery of materials equivalent to that which might reasonably be expected to result from such formal training. Applicants deficient in background may be admitted on a conditional basis and will be required to make up deficiencies without graduate credit during the first year in residence. A simpler alternative, when practical, would be to remove deficiencies as a special student prior to applying for admission to the graduate program.
In order to be considered for admission into the master’s program, an applicant must submit (1) two copies of transcripts from all undergraduate institutions attended; (2) Graduate Record Examination scores for verbal and quantitative aptitude; and (3) at least three letters of recommendation. Evidence of previous nonacademic anthropology-oriented work or other experience will be carefully considered, as will that of special skills relevant to anthropological research. Departmental deadlines for receipt of applications for admission to the Graduate School, including accompanying materials, is April 15 for fall entrance, October 15 for spring entrance.
Further information concerning specialization within the program, departmental admission and advising policies, etc., may be obtained by writing the Director of Graduate Studies in Anthropology, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202. For general Graduate School requirements and application information, see beginning of graduate section of this bulletin.
Residence Requirement
A minimum of two full semesters devoted to advanced study is required by the Graduate School. Students working toward the master’s degree in anthropology will be strongly encouraged to attain that degree within three years following matriculation into the program.
Course Hours and Distribution
A minimum of 30 semester hours of credit is required for the M.A. degree in anthropology. All course work in anthropology must be at the 500 level or above. Course work is to be distributed as follows for students pursuing an interdisciplinary specialty within the general anthropology track, the medical anthropology track, or the community and urban anthropology track:
Courses in anthropology.........15 semester hours minimum
Courses in related fields....... 9 semester hours minimum
For students pursuing a subdisciplinary specialty within the general anthropology track, course work is to be distributed as follows:
Courses in anthropology.........15 semester hours minimum
Courses in related fields....... 9 semester hours minimum
The remaining 6 semester hours may be met either by (Plan I) writing a master’s thesis, for which 6 hours credit is given, or by (Plan II) taking 6 additional hours of course work and writing a master’s paper on an agreed upon Course work topic.
Thesis or Paper
The student must either carry out an original research project and report the results in a thesis of professional quality or write a master’s paper, more limited in scope, to complete the degree. A thesis provides a valuable opportunity to initiate or pursue important, individual research objectives. The master’s paper is intended as a flexible alternative for students who wish to pursue in depth some issue or specialty topic without engaging in the sustained research effort on which a master’s thesis depends.
APPLIED MATHEMATICS
See Mathematics Program.
BASIC SCIENCE, MASTER OF
Collin Hightower, Coordinator for UCD
The program leading to the Master of Basic Science (M.B.S.) degree is interdisciplinary. It provides an opportunity for present and prospective mathematics and science professionals and others to extend and/or broaden their training in computer science, mathematics, museology, and the natural and physical sciences at advanced undergraduate and graduate levels. These professionals include public school teachers, industrial scientists, engineers, business persons, and others. The student may elect the


Graduate School / 83
mathematics, science, or museology options as described below. Wide latitude is possible in the details of a degree plan so that students may follow a course of study most pertinent to their interests. The degree plan will be designed in conjunction with the student’s adviser and must be approved by the executive committee.
All courses credited toward the degree must be taken through the University of Colorado at Boulder, Colorado Springs, or Denver, over a period of five years or six successive summers.
The Master of Basic Science degree is supervised by an administrative committee appointed by the dean of the Graduate School, and administered by an Executive Committee elected from the Administrative Committee. Application should be made to Master of Basic Science, Attn. Sue Dillingham, Campus Box B26, University of Colorado at Boulder, regardless of the campus which the student plans to attend.
Requirements for Admission
1. General regulations for admission to the Graduate School apply (see Requirements for Admission).
2. A student must present at least 40 semester hours in the physical and biological sciences and mathematics, preferably including one year of calculus, statistics, or computer science.

84 / University of Colorado at Denver
BIOLOGY
The master’s program in biology is designed to prepare graduates for research and teaching positions, employment in business and industry, and for advanced graduate work at the doctoral level. The M.A. in biology may be obtained with an emphasis in ecology, genetics, plant science, and organismic biology (including anatomy, physiology, and development).
Two principles have guided the development of the graduate program in biology. These are (1) the belief that a student’s program should be tailored to meet the student’s specific needs or personal goals and (2) the utilization of all the University’s resource facilities, regardless of the campus on which they are located, in order to provide greater opportunity and exposure for the student.
Requirements for Admission
Applicants must hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university earned with an overall grade-point average of 3.0 or better. (Exceptions to this grade-point average are made, dependent upon the letters of recommendation made on the student’s behalf.) Most applicants have an undergraduate major in biology or its equivalent. Students who do not meet the minimum requirements set by the department or the Graduate School may be admitted on a provisional basis as detailed in the Graduate School general information section in this bulletin. The general portion of the GRE is required; the advanced biology test is recommended but not required. Applications are submitted directly to the biology graduate coordinator at UCD.
Degree Requirements
All course work taken within the department and applied toward the degree must be 500 level or above. With the adviser’s and/or graduate committee’s approval course work at the 400 level taken outside the department may be applied toward the degree. Two types of degree plans are offered:
Plan I (with thesis) requires 24 semester hours including 4-6 hours of thesis; at least 12 of the total semester hours must be 500 level or above.
Plan II (without thesis) requires 30 semester hours of which 16 hours must be 500 level or above.
There is no core of required courses structured into the master’s degree program; however, one seminar (1 or 2 hours credit) is required. A course plan is developed by the student and major professor and approved by the student’s graduate committee.
Additional Information
The student is referred to the biology graduate coordinator (629-3419) and to the Department of Biology’s Master of Arts in Biology brochure which is available in the Graduate School office. Specific questions relating to the student’s background and specific program needs should be directed to the biology graduate coordinator.
CHEMISTRY
The M.S. degree is offered at UCD in any of the following basic fields: analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, or physical chemistry. Additionally, research programs involving environmental and geochemical problems are being encouraged.
The M.S. program is available to both full- and part-time students. The chemistry faculty at UCD strive to ensure that students receive excellent advising and supervision of work. Students enrolled in the program have an opportunity to be appointed as laboratory teaching assistants. Research activities on the part of the chemistry faculty provide opportunities for graduate students to obtain research assistantships.
Requirements for Admission
Students must meet the Graduate School admission requirements. International students may have additional admission requirements concerning immigration status, proof of financial responsibility, and minimum TOEFL scores. An undergraduate major in chemistry, including two semesters of physical chemistry, is desirable as all entering students are required to pass qualifying examinations covering the major fields of chemistry. The GRE examination is required and the advanced chemistry GRE examination score is recommended. If either the Graduate School or departmental requirements are not satisfied, students may be admitted on a provisional basis.
Degree Requirements
There are two methods of obtaining a master’s degree from the Department of Chemistry:
Plan I is a research-oriented plan requiring 15 to 20 credit hours of formal course work, 4 to 9 credit hours in research courses, and the successful oral presentation of a written thesis covering the research project.
Plan II is a course work-oriented plan without a thesis requiring 24 credit hours of formal course work, 6 credit hours in research courses, and the successful oral presentation of a written report covering the research project.
Examinations. Qualifying preliminary examinations are given to all entering students in the five basic fields of chemistry. After completion of the student’s research project, a final oral examination is given to cover the thesis (Plan I) or research report (Plan II).
Language. Each student must demonstrate a third-semester undergraduate proficiency in a foreign language. Organic chemistry students are encouraged to meet the requirement in German while other students may use French, German, Japanese, or Russian.
Prospective students are encouraged to contact the chemistry graduate adviser, Robert Damrauer, at 629-2743 for additional details concerning the chemistry program, admission procedures, financial assistance, and faculty research interests.
CIVIL ENGINEERING
Civil engineering graduate programs at UCD are offered through the combined departments of Civil, Environmental,


Graduate School / 85
and Architectural Engineering (Boulder) and Civil Engineering (Denver). Students wishing to pursue graduate work in civil engineering leading to candidacy for the M.S. or Ph.D. degrees should read carefully Requirements for Advanced Degrees in this bulletin. All requirements for the M.S. and a large part of those for the Ph.D. may be completed at UCD. A pamphlet elaborating on the rules as they apply to civil engineering is available from the departmental office at UCD, UA 403, 629-2871.
No qualifying examination is required for the M.S. degree; however, in competition for all University fellowships, the Graduate Record Examination, consisting of the aptitude tests and the advanced test in engineering, is used in the evaluation of candidates. Therefore, students are advised to take this examination prior to their arrival on campus.
Programs are available in the fields of transportation, water quality and water resources, hydraulics, soil mechanics, structural mechanics, and structural design.
In each program, courses are selected by the student (under supervision of the faculty adviser) in such a way as to meet the student’s interests and the requirements of the Graduate School.
See also Master of Engineering degree.
The civil engineering program has no Ph.D. foreign language requirement other than those communication requirements established by the Graduate School. For more information write to: Chairman, Civil Engineering, College of Engineering and Applied Science, UCD, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.

Through CUTS, the departments offer interdisciplinary graduate programs and research opportunities designed to develop professionals who will be capable of dealing with the complex problems of urban transportation in a competent and meaningful manner. Degree programs are available through the College of Engineering and Applied Science, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Graduate School of Public Affairs, Graduate School of Business Administration, and College of Design and Planning. For more information call (303) 629-2628.
COMMUNICATION AND THEATRE
Applicants are admitted to the graduate program in communication and theatre on the basis of their academic records, recommendations, and the GRE scores. A GPA of 3.0 is normally expected. Students admitted who are unable to offer a substantial number of semester hours of work in the area of their intended specialization or in allied fields must expect that a significant number of
additional courses and semester hours will be required of them in order to make up deficiencies.
Degree Requirements
Every student must take a diagnostic examination before completing 9 semester hours.
For every student who declares intention to qualify for an advanced degree, an adviser and committee will be selected not later than the beginning of the student’s second semester (or second summer term) in residence. It is the duty of this adviser and committee to assume the responsibility for (1) approving the student’s graduate program; and (2) evaluating the student’s qualifying examination, thesis, and comprehensive final examination.
All M.A. degree candidates are required to complete
C.T. 601 or its equivalent. At least two courses (4 to 8 hours) must be taken outside the department or outside the departmental area(s) of concentration.
Plan I, With Thesis. After any undergraduate deficiencies have been removed, students under Plan I must normally earn 27 semester hours of which a minimum of 16 must be earned in one major area. Students planning to pursue doctoral or professional degrees should expect to follow Plan I. At least two courses (4 to 8 hours) must be taken outside the department.
Plan II Option, Without Thesis. After any undergraduate deficiencies have been removed, students under Plan II must normally earn 30 semester hours of which a minimum of 19 must be earned in one major area. At least two additional courses (4 to 8 hours) must be taken outside the department. The student will submit at least one major paper which has been revised under faculty supervision. Plan II is available to those who do not plan to pursue doctoral or professional degrees.
Courses at the 500 level or above may be applied toward the graduate degree by graduate students in communication and theatre.
The graduate courses in communication and theatre are also applicable to the Master of Humanities program at UCD.
For more information, students should contact the graduate adviser at 629-2730.

ECONOMICS
The M.A. program in economics at UCD is directed toward rwo groups: (1) those who look on the M.A. as a key to career development in business or government service and (2) those who desire to go on to Ph.D. studies in economics or related fields.
In serving these constituencies, the department seeks to strike a balance between generating technical competence in handling modern quantitative techniques and providing solid grounding in several applied fields of economics. While these two aims overlap to some degree in the course offerings, prospective degree candidates should determine rather early in their studies at UCD whether to emphasize quantitative and theoretical work or applied fields, or to balance the two.
In addition to offering regularly a graduate sequence in macroeconomic and microeconomic theory, and econometrics, the department emphasizes the following: urban economics, transportation economics, resource economics, environmental economics, public finance and policy, education of economists, political economy, and mathematical economics. Persons interested in the program should contact
Fundamental Concepts of Programming Languages Operating Systems or
Hardware-Software Interface Numerical Analysis I Automata Theory Data Structures
Degree Requirements
1. Economic Theory (Econ. 507).
2. Quantitative Methods (Econ. 581).
3. Plan I: An M.A. Thesis. Twenty-four semester hours, of which 12 must be at the 600 level or above and 4 semester hours of thesis credit. Thesis credit does not count toward the 12 600-level hours.
4. Plan II: Without Thesis. Thirty semester hours, of which 15 must be at the 600 level or above. Two fields of concentration. Each field requires 6 credit hours, but the structure is highly flexible, e.g., one field can be an internship.
EDUCATION
Graduate study in education at the University of Colorado is offered on three campuses (Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs) and through numerous program areas. All inquiries regarding programs at UCD should be directed to the Dean’s Office, School of Education, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th St., Denver, CO 80202, or to the Dean of the Graduate School at UCD.
A wide range of professional and academic interests are served by these programs. Programs of study can be undertaken in the following areas:
Administration and supervision Early childhood education Educational psychology Elementary education
(bilingual education, English as a second language) Foundations
Guidance and counseling (elementary, secondary, and agency settings)
Library media
Middle school certification
Reading
School psychology certification Secondary education (bilingual education,
English as a second language, English education, mathematics education, science education, social studies education, technology in education) Special education
Graduate studies in education are offered primarily at the M.A. (thesis and nonthesis), but also at the postmaster’s, level. In some instances, doctoral work can be taken at UCD, but only with the prior approval of a student’s adviser, and the dean’s office on both the Boulder and Denver campuses.
Outlines of each of the graduate programs of study are available upon request from the School of Education office at UCD. Since many of the graduate degree plans are flexible and can be designed around individual student needs, it is highly desirable that the prospective candidate


Graduate School / 87
discuss tentative programs of studies with appropriate faculty members prior to submitting applications.
Application for Admission
A prospective candidate should request application forms from the dean’s office, School of Education, University of Colorado at Denver. The completed form should be returned to the Dean, School of Education, UCD, together with a $20 application fee. The fee should be in the form of a check or money order payable to the University of Colorado. Two copies of official transcripts of all previous college and university study should be ordered by the applicant to be sent to the dean. Four recommendations on the forms provided, or by letter, should be furnished. It is preferred that at least two of these should be from college or university professors who can write with assurance about the applicant’s academic and professional achievement promise. One or two recommendations from supervisors or employers are acceptable with reference to an applicant’s ability and contribution to the enterprise with which he/ she was or is associated. Application papers and all supporting documents (including GRE scores or MAT scores, see below) must be in the dean’s office on April 1 for summer, June 1 for fall, and October 1 for spring semester admission.
Applicants should request the Educational Testing Service to send their scores on the aptitude test (verbal and quantitative) of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), or scores from the Miller’s Analogy Test, to the dean’s office. If an applicant has not taken the Graduate Record Examination or the Miller’s Analogy Test, he/she should arrange to do so. The GRE or MAT is administered at many centers throughout the country. Information about the GRE may be obtained from the Graduate School office, the Student Academic Services office at UCD, the Educational Testing Service, 20 Nassau Street, Princeton, New Jersey 08540, or the graduate office of a university in the applicant’s area.
Degree Requirements
Two Master of Arts degree plans and a Master of Education plan are available, each comprising one academic year or more of graduate work beyond the bachelor’s degree. The minimum residence requirement for any master’s degree is one academic year or the equivalent, and it may be satisfied by two semesters in residence, or three full summer sessions, or any combination equal to two semesters.
1. M.A.—Plan I (With Thesis). The program consists of 36 semester hours or more, including 4 semester hours for the master’s thesis. While the inclusion of a minor field is not required by the Graduate School, a student and adviser may agree on a minor, in which 4 to 8 semester hours can be applied toward degree requirements.
The M.A. thesis is written in accordance with the specifications set by the Graduate School and under the supervision of the student’s adviser. When a complete first draft is ready for final typing, the thesis must be read by a second reader appointed by the dean’s office. If the second reader approves the thesis, both the reader and the adviser will sign it when it is presented for filing
with the Graduate School. If the reader does not approve, he/she and the student’s adviser will confer and suggest appropriate changes. Two copies are required by the Graduate School.
2. M.A.—Plan II (Without Thesis). The Plan II program includes 36 or more semester hours of graduate credit, and may include 4 to 10 hours for a minor. The minor is highly recommended in some fields of study.
3. Master of Education (M.Ed.). This program requires a minimum of 36 or more semester hours of graduate work, including a professional report for which 2 semester hours credit is granted. The professional report is prepared under the supervision of the student’s adviser, in accordance with thesis specifications issued by the Graduate School. One copy is submitted to the adviser upon completion, but none is filed with the Graduate School.
EDUCATION AS A MINOR FIELD
In M.A. programs for majors outside the School of Education, students may include education as a minor if both their major department and the dean’s office of the School of Education approve. For master’s degrees, a minor in education consists of at least 6 semester hours of study in related courses. Not more than 2 semester hours may be transferred from another institution.
Students who propose to minor in education must have had sufficient undergraduate work in education to prepare them for graduate study in the field. Appraisal of undergraduate preparation will be made by the dean’s office and the coordinator of the program area in which the proposed minor courses will be taken.
ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
Electrical engineering graduate programs at UCD are offered through the combined Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering (Denver) and Electrical Engineering (Boulder).
Students can undertake studies toward the Master of Science and Ph.D. degrees at UCD in the areas of communication and information systems, computer hardware and software, control systems, electro-optics and holography, circuits and electronics, fields and propagation, and power systems.

88 / University of Colorado at Denver
The Ph.D. preliminary examination will include the following areas:
Bioengineering
Circuits (active, passive, models)
Communication theory
Computers
Control systems
Electric and magnetic fields
Energy conversion and power systems
Mathematics
Physical and semiconductor electronics
Each student must complete two sections, mathematics and the area in which he/she plans to specialize, and must present an acceptable master’s thesis or the equivalent as an indication of ability to perform independent research.
ENGINEERING, MASTER OF
The Master of Engineering degree program is administered by the Graduate School through the departments of engineering. The requirements for admission and for quality and quantity of academic work are essentially the same as for the Master of Science degree awarded in the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
The principal difference between the Master of Engineering degree and the Master of Science degree is that the Master of Engineering is intended especially to meet the needs of those practicing engineers who wish to follow an integrated, interdisciplinary program of studies in engineering or in engineering and allied subjects related to the individual student’s professional work. Examples of such interdisciplinary programs include engineering and social sciences, engineering and biological sciences, engineering and behavioral sciences, engineering and public administration, engineering and law, and engineering and business administration.
The degree will be especially valuable for continuing education programs for engineers in industry. It will provide a framework for such persons to work toward significant goals fitted to their particular interests. The program can include courses which are made available on video tape or on live television.
The Master of Engineering degree is not intended as a means to permit a random, unguided selection of courses. Each prospective student is required to present a well-defined objective in order to be admitted to the program. In consultation with the faculty advisers, an academic program is developed to meet this objective.
The admission of students to graduate study, the approval of their degree programs, admission to candidacy for the degree, and the approval of the awarding of a degree are to originate through a specific department of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, in the same manner as for the established Master of Science program. An advisory committee, including not fewer than three faculty members, will be appointed for each student by his or her department. The membership of each advisory committee shall be chosen from the various interdisciplinary academic areas represented in the student’s program and will be from more than one department. The advisory
committee guides the student, and is responsible for approving the individual’s degree program and admission to candidacy; and approves the student’s written report and the awarding of the degree.
Degree Requirements
The requirements for the degree are 30 credit hours plus a written report on a creative investigation which may be related to the student’s professional work. The report will be of the same general quality as that required for the thesis for the Master of Science degree and must be defended orally, but does not in itself carry credit nor require registration. It may be based upon work done for credit under independent study. At least 15 credit hours must be in engineering at the 500 level or above. As many as 15 credit hours may be taken outside of engineering. Credit in courses below the 400 level will not apply toward degree requirements.
Additional information about the degree may be obtained from the College of Engineering and Applied Science departmental offices.
ENGLISH
Students admitted to graduate study in English may complete all or substantially all of their course requirements for either the M.A. or Ph.D. at UCD.
Requirements for Admission
Admission requirements for graduate study in English include satisfactory scores on verbal and advanced (literature) parts of the Graduate Record Examination, plus at least 24 semester hours in English (exclusive of composition, creative writing and speech, and literature courses counting as credits in education). At least 16 semester hours must be in upper division work.
Degree Requirements
Students wishing to pursue graduate work in English should note Requirements for Advanced Degrees in this bulletin. They also should obtain a copy of the brochure, Graduate Study in English, issued by the English department and should consult the adviser for graduate English studies at UCD.
All students planning to take any graduate English examination must state their intentions to the graduate adviser for English studies at UCD at least ten weeks prior to the date of the examination.
The graduate courses in English are also applicable to the Master of Humanities program at UCD.
For more information contact the graduate adviser at 629-8304.
ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE
The environmental science degree is designed to provide students with training in engineering, natural/physical sciences, and socioeconomic analysis. The goals of the program are to: (1) enhance the interdisciplinary communication and analytical skills of the student, and (2) provide opportunities for more intensive training within


Graduate School / 89
a particular subject area. Students will receive instruction in the physical and biological dynamics of various ecosystems, environmental engineering, and socioeconomic issues associated with environmental analysis.
Degree Requirements
The degree curriculum consists of three components: (1) a set of five core courses required of all students (16 hours); (2) elective courses taken in two of the three subject areas (18 hours minimum); and (3) an in-service research project and report (3 hours). At least 21 of the 37 credit hours required for the degree must be at the 500 level or above. Program flexibility is provided through the selection of elective courses in various subject areas.
To fulfill the elective requirements, students select one of the following options. Each option includes courses from two of the three subject areas (engineering, natural/ physical sciences, socioeconomic sciences).
Engineering Option: 6 hours of natural/physical sciences or socioeconomic sciences and 12 hours of engineering.
Natural/Physical Sciences Option: 6 hours of engineering and 12 hours of natural/physical sciences.
Socioeconomic Science Option: 6 hours of engineering and 12 hours of socioeconomic sciences.
The degree is offered through cooperation between the College of Engineering and Applied Science and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Information on specific core course requirements and elective course options can be obtained by contacting the Division of Natural and Physical Sciences, 629-2646.
FINANCE
Refer to the Graduate School of Business Administration section of this bulletin.
FINE ARTS
Some course work at the graduate level can be taken at UCD in this discipline, but degree programs must be completed through the University of Colorado at Boulder; 500-level courses are open to qualified seniors.
The graduate courses in fine arts are also applicable to the Master of Humanities program at UCD.
FRENCH
At present UCD offers no French courses above 599. The courses at the 500 level are applicable to an M.A. degree through the University of Colorado at Boulder, depending upon degree plan approval by the graduate adviser in Boulder in each case. The graduate courses in French are also applicable to the Master of Humanities program at UCD.
GEOGRAPHY
An M.A. degree program is offered at UCD emphasizing the spatial analysis of a variety of urban phenomena. Areas of specialization include urban economic/social geography, transportation, quantitative methods, land use,
perception, and environmental planning. Graduate training toward the Ph.D. degree is also available at UCD. All applications are presently processed by the departmental office on the Boulder campus. Flexible programs are designed to meet the needs of both full- and part-time students.
Requirements for Admission
For admission to the M.A. program, the student must have a bachelor’s degree in geography or some allied field. Applicants with little or no training in geography may be required to take additional course work in areas deemed necessary for completing graduate work. The GRE verbal and quantitative examinations, or their equivalent for foreign students, are required of all applicants.
Degree Requirements
Two types of degree programs are available. Plan I requires a minimum of 18 credit hours of course work and 6 credit hours of thesis research and presentation work. Plan II requires a minimum of 30 credit hours of course work, including 4 to 6 independent student credit hours involving completion of a project or paper of publishable quality.
All incoming graduate students must complete three graduate seminars with three different departmental faculty within the first semester (or first year for part-time students). At least one of the three courses must be in physical geography and one in human geography. The performance in these courses will be used by a faculty committee to (1) determine the general fitness of the student to continue toward the M.A. degree and (2) identify any academic deficiencies the student may have.
For further information call the geography department, 629-3456 or 629-2590.
GEOLOGICAL SCIENCES
It is possible to do a significant proportion of the work required for an M.S. degree on the Denver campus, but prospective graduate students must be prepared to take approximately one-third to one-half of their course work on the Boulder campus at this time. A formal proposal for a complete M.S. degree program for the Denver campus is being prepared. UCD offers its program entirely in the evening, with the exception of field geology and a very few nontechnical electives.
More information about opportunities for Denver students is available in the UCD geology department, 629-3456.
HEALTH ADMINISTRATION
Refer to the Graduate School of Business Administration section of this bulletin.
HISTORY
The history faculty of the University of Colorado at Denver offers a master’s degree program which encompasses certain fields of modern history. Students applying for


90 / University of Colorado at Denver
admission to the program should have sufficient background in history, though not necessarily a B.A. in the subject, and some knowledge of allied social sciences to afford an adequate foundation for graduate work. However, the department encourages applications from individuals interested in resuming their education.
The master’s degree in history is traditionally viewed as training for careers in education, government service, museum and archive management, or historic preservation activities as well as for further degree work in law and business management. But the degree program is also attractive to individuals who want to further their general education.
Requirements for Admission
Application forms for admission to graduate study in history are available from the UCD Graduate School office. In addition to the general admission requirements of the Graduate School, applicants for admission to the history program must take the verbal and the advanced history section of the Graduate Record Examination. Applicants may also submit a significant sample of their writing. The Admissions Committee will examine carefully all materials submitted, including transcripts and letters of recommendation, and advise that candidates make appointments for an interview.
Degree Requirements
Candidates in history must satisfy the general requirements of the Graduate School which are outlined in this bulletin. In meeting the master’s degree requirements of the Department of History candidates have two options. They must complete either 30 semester hours of course work, or 24 semester hours of course work and a thesis. Under the first option, candidates must include in the 30 hours at least 15 hours of course work at the 600 level or above and 3 hours of 700-level work in their major field. Under the second option, the 24 hours of course work must include at least 12 hours of work at the 600 level or above and 3 hours at the 700 level in the major field. The thesis (4-6 hours) counts as 700-level work. A candidate is urged to select his or her thesis, which is subject to departmental approval, by the beginning of the second semester. The writing of the thesis shall be under the supervision of the candidate’s major adviser. Except in special circumstances, the department strongly recommends the thesis option.
Upon nearing the completion of their degree work, all candidates are required to pass a final written comprehensive examination in their major field. The examination, to be registered for in advance, will be given each semester, including summers, at announced times and will be conducted by the department.
A residency of at least one academic year is required for the degree.
Particular Requirements for the Master’s Degree in History
1. Hist. 601, Historiography, is required of all graduate students.
2. Each candidate must select one of the fields listed below as a major field which shall comprise not more than 50 percent of the M.A. program:
The United States to 1865
The United States Since 1865
Modern Europe (Since 1500)
Africa
3. Each candidate must select a second field of history as his or her minor and complete 6 hours of work in that field. However, candidates selecting one of the U.S. fields as their major may not select the other U.S. field as their minor.
4. With the consent of their major adviser, candidates may include in their programs a minor in museology, to consist of 6 semester hours (normally Mus. 401 and Independent Study in Museology), a minor in archival and records management procedures to consist of 6 hours (normally Hist. 690 and 790), or a minor in historic preservation to consist of 6 hours.
5. With the consent of their major adviser, candidates may include in their program a minor consisting of 6 hours of work taken outside the Department of History. The minor may be chosen from the following subjects: economics, political science, psychology, sociology, anthropology, geography, philosophy, literature, art history, or education.
6. Candidates working in an area of study involving the use of a foreign language will be required by their major adviser to demonstrate proficiency in that language.
7. In history courses no grade lower than B will count toward the completion of the course work for the master’s degree.
8. Candidates may register for up to 6 hours of Independent Study (Hist. 950). In special circumstances, with consent of the major adviser, candidates may register for up to 9 hours of independent study.
Additional independent study must be approved by the department chairman upon the advice of the major adviser.
For further information concerning the master’s degree in history at UCD, direct inquiries to Chairman, Department of History, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202 or telephone 629-2616.
HUMANITIES, MASTER OF
The Master of Humanities is an interdisciplinary degree offered at UCD. Its purpose is to provide an opportunity for students to broaden their understanding of the relationships among the several areas normally subsumed under the heading of humanities, e.g., communication, philosophy, the arts, literature, and the languages. The M.H. program is especially suitable for the many high school, junior high school, and elementary school teachers who find themselves in the position of having to teach in several different areas of the humanities. However the M.H. program is by no means restricted to teachers.
All courses required for the M.H. degree are offered at UCD.


Graduate School / 91
Requirements for Admission
Each student is required to take the Graduate Record Examination aptitude test as an aid in the planning of his/her studies for the degree.
Before entering the M.H. program, a student is expected to have had at least 40 semester hours in the humanities. Humanities, as used here, is broadly conceived to include general studies in communication, theatre, philosophy, literature, the arts, the languages, and other areas as agreed upon by the student and the Graduate School.
General requirements of the Graduate School governing the awarding of the master’s degree apply.
Degree Requirements
All courses credited toward the M.H. degree must be taken at the University of Colorado over a period not exceeding five years or six successive summers. The M.H. degree program shall be supervised by an advisory committee consisting of three members of the graduate faculty, each from a different area of the humanities.
In addition to the 3 hours for Hum. 500 (described below), candidates for the M.H. degree are expected to complete a minimum of 24 semester hours at the 500 level or higher in four of the following areas (i.e., 3-9 hours in each area):
Communication
English
Fine arts
French language and literature
History
Music
Philosophy
Spanish language and literature Theatre
Up to 6 hours in areas other than those listed above may be accepted as humanities as agreed upon by the student and the advisory committee.
The requirement of 3-9 hours in each area is intended to ensure that the student achieves a considerable degree of breadth. On the other hand, this requirement should not be construed as precluding the student from doing additional work in one particular field in order to achieve further depth.
Within one calendar year of entering the M.H. program, the student is required to take Hum. 500 (may be repeated as 501). This is a 3-credit seminar that deals with the identity of the humanities, their place in the life of man, the various media through which they manifest themselves, and related matters. Hum. 500 (and 501 if repeated) count as part of the 30 hours required for the M.H. degree. Twenty-four of the required hours will be taken in the disciplines listed above, the remainder to be completed through Hum. 500 (and 501 if repeated).
Before completing 15 hours of course work toward the M.H., the student must meet with an advisory committee to plan the directions and emphases for the remainder of studies for the degree.
After completing the 30 hours required for the degree, the student is required to pass a comprehensive examination covering the three areas in which course work has been concentrated. It should be stressed that this examination is not a combination of three different master's degree examinations’, rather, it is an opportunity for the student
to display, and the faculty to view, the student’s expertise in combining significant aspects of three different fields, bringing major trends and ideas of the fields into meaningful relationships with each other. The examination will be composed and administered by the student’s advisory committee.
After satisfactory completion of the comprehensive examination, the student must present a final thesis or project. This is a substantial scholarly and/or creative exercise involving three different humanistic areas. It is supervised by the student’s advisory committee and must be performed or presented before an open seminar consisting of the committee and any other faculty members who wish to attend. The approved thesis or report of thesis-performance shall be recorded in the Graduate School.
Throughout this work toward the M.H. degree, the student must uphold the high standards of the Graduate School, maintaining at least a B average in all courses taken subsequent to his/her admission to the M.H. program.
Required Courses
The only course specifically required for the M.H. degree is the new Hum. 500 described above.
The 24 hours (in addition to Hum. 500) required for the degree will normally be drawn from 500-level courses which already exist at UCD.
The language requirement for the M.H. degree is fourth-semester proficiency in a language relevant to the student’s particular course of study. Such relevancy will be decided upon by the student’s advisory committee.
For further information about the Master of Humanities degree program students should contact the Division of Arts and Humanities, 629-2730.
MANAGEMENT AND ORGANIZATION, MANAGEMENT SCIENCE, AND MARKETING
Refer to the Graduate School of Business Administration section of this bulletin.
MATHEMATICS
Two graduate degrees may be earned in mathematics: the M.A. in mathematics and the M.S. in applied mathematics. (Also see Master of Basic Science.) It is the responsibility of each individual student to see that the requirements for these degrees are satisfied at the proper time.
Requirements for Admission
To begin graduate work toward one of the above degrees, a student should have at least the following preparation: 30 semester hours in mathematics including, beyond a full course in calculus, a year’s course in advanced calculus, 3 semester hours of linear algebra and either a 3-semester-hour course in higher algebra or a 3-semester-hour course in ordinary differential equations.
Students who do not have all the prerequisites for one of the advanced degrees may still be admitted provisionally

Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity The University of Colorado at Denver adheres to a policy of equa l opportunity in education and in employ ment. In pursuit of this policy, no UCD department, unit, discipline, or employee shall discriminate against an in dividual or group on the basis of race, sex, creed, color, age, national orig i n , or individual handicap. This policy applies to all areas of the University affecting present and prospective students or emp loyees. The institution's educational programs, activities, and services, offered to students and j or employees are ad ministered on a nondiscriminatory basis subject to the provisions of Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 . A UCD Affirmative Action j Equal Opportunity Program has been established to imp l ement this policy. For infor mation about these provisions on equity, discrimination, or fairness, consult the Affirmative Action j Equal Em ployment Opportunity Director at UCD. Research and Public Service All academic programs, public service, and research activities at UCD are oriented toward the needs of the urban population and environment , and to concerns and issues of importance to Colorado and the region. Activities in research and public service encompass both traditional and nontraditional fields of study , but predominate l y focus on issues that are related to Colorado needs . During 1982-83, UCD faculty received 65 awards tOtaling $ 2.4 million for research and public service programs. These dollars , from public and private souorces, support research and public service work which is of direct benefit to the State of Colorado . Such activities have brought UCD into close working relationships with rep resentatives of city, county, and state government un.its, as well as many individual citizens . Current research activity covers such diverse areas as geotechnical engineering , environm e ntal sciences, bilingual tea c her training, community development and design, cooperative education programs, minority education proj ects, and seminars for executives in state and local gov ernment. In engineering , UCD facu lty are looking at soil behavior as it relates to earthquakes, winds, and oceanic activity. They also are contributing to design and safety plans in mine structures for oil shale processing and to construction techniques which would lengthen the life and serviceability of highways. UCD ' s Mathematics Clinics investigate contemporary societal issues through the application of mathematical concepts ro specific problems. Mathematics students and professors, for example , developed a mathematical analysis and computerized system for portfolio analyses for a Denver

bank. Anorher project involved a mathematical analysis of t h e economic impact of stare and federal po licies. The enter for Environmental Sciences has grown rapidly since 19 70 to include a cluster of environmenta l projects rela ted to trace elements in oil shale, pollution of ground water by uranium railings , an d ideas for renovating waste water. The work in this area has a direct impact on Co lor ado development issues and is conducted in close com muni cation with both industry and various public interest groups in order to consider environmenta l issues in a complete context. The arional Hispanic Field Service Program strives to recr uit Hispanic students into graduate public affairs programs and guide them into public management careers that will prepare them for leadership roles in communities with significant Hispanic populations. One of UCD's most significant public service projects is the Center for Communiry Development and Design . The center provides design an d p l anning assistance to local governments throughout Colorado and in Denver. Projects have included neighborhood renovation , main street re development, economic development strategies, recreational plans, and grow th impact studies. The com munities and neighborhoods , students, and faculry work together to help communiry leaders plan for solutions and ways to fund needed projects. As a result , rhe communiry receives the guidance it needs, and UCD's academic programs are enh anced by invo l vement in p r actical projects. I.

ArrangementS may be made through the Finance Office at the rime of registration to defer payment of parr of the c h arges . Specific information on deferred payment is included in the Schedule of Courses published before each semester or summer term . Srudenrs who register for courses are liable for payment of tuition a nd fees even though they may drop out of school. Refund policies for students who wi thdr aw from the University are included in the Schedule of Courses. A student with financial obligations to the University will nor be p e rmitted to register for any subsequent term , to be graduated, or to be listed among those receiving a degree or special certificate.

Personal checks are accepted for any University obli gat i on .

A service charge of $ 15 will be added for returned checks. AUDIT To qualify as an auditor for fall or spring semester , a srudenr must be 2 1 years of age or older . Auditors may nor be registered for any other University of Colorado courses during the time rhey are auditing and are nor elig ibl e to audit course s if they are under suspension from the University. The Records Office does not keep any record of courses audited; therefore , credit for these courses cannot be established. Auditors may attend as many courses as they wish (except those courses with laborarories or where equipment is used), provided they have received permission from each instructor. Auditor ' s cards are issued after classes begin. This card should be presented to the instructor when requesting permission ro attend a class. There is no auditor status in summer. Auditors, whether resident or nonresident , pay resident tuiti on for rhe audited courses during the fall or spring semester for class instruction and library privi l eges only. Auditors do nor receive student parking privileges. Residency Classification for Tuition Purposes Tuition classification is governed by CRS 2 3-7-101, er. seq. ( 1973) as amended.1 Institutions of higher education are bound to the provisions of this stature and are nor free to make excep tions ro the rules set forth . The stature provides that an instare student is one General Information / 9 who has been a legal domiciliary of Colorado for one year or more immediately preceding the beginning of the term for which the in-stare classification is sought. Persons over 22 years of age or who a re emancipated establish their ow n legal domicile . Those who are under 22 years of age and unemancipated assume the domicile of their parent o r court appointed legal guardian. An unemancipated minor ' s parent must , therefore , have a legal domicile in Colorado for one year or more before the minor may be classified as an in-state student for tuition purposes. Domicile is established when one has a permanent place of habitation in Colorado and the intention of making Colorado o ne ' s true , fixed, and permanent home and place of habitation. The tuition statute places the burden of establishing a Colorado domicile on rhe person seeking to establish domicile . The question of intent is one of documentable fact and needs to be manifest by substantial conne ctions with the state sufficient to evidence such intent. Legal domici l e in Colorado begins the day subsequent connections with Colorado are made sufficient to evidence one's intent. The mosr commo n ties wit h the state are ( 1) change of driver's license to Colorado; (2) change of a utomobile registration to Colorado; (3) Colorado voter registrati on; (4) permanent employment in Colorado ; (5) and most importantly, payment of state income taxes as a resident by one whose income is sufficient to be taxed . Caution: payment or filing of back taxes in no way serves ro establish a legal domicile retroactive to the rime filed. Military personnel should a lso: 1. Pay the ownership rax on Colorado license plates . They should not take the mili t ary waiver on the ownership rax. This waiver requires a n affidavit of nonr esidence in Colorado. 2. Change their state of legal residence for tax purposes to Colorado immediately upon forming intent t o make Co l orado their l egal dom icile. In order ro qualify for in-state tuition for a given rerm , the 12-monrh waiting period (which begins when rhe legal domicile is established) must be over by rhe first day of classes for the rerm in question . If one's 1 2month waiting period expires during a semester, in-stare tuition cannot be granted until rhe next semester. Once the student ' s status is established, it remains unch anged unless satisfactory information to rhe contrary is presented. A student who, due ro subsequent evenrs, becomes eligible for a change in classification from resident ro n o nresident or vice versa must inform the Office of Admissi ons a nd Records within 15 days after such a c hang e occurs. An adult student or emancipated minor who moves o utside of Colorado must send written no tificati o n to the Office of Admissions and R ecords within 15 days of the change . Once rhe student is classified as our-of-state for ruirion purposes, it is necessary to petition rhe Office of Admissions a nd Records for a change in classification. It is preferable to submit petitions 30 days prior to the term for which students wish to b e classified in-stare so rhar their clas sification will be determined prior ro registration and • A w p y uf r hc: u l u r"ld u Rc:vist:t.l S r atures ( 1 97 J), as a mt'nUt:d , is availabl e in tht> Un1vc:rs• q uf Cul uradu Dtnvc:r Admiss i o n s Offio:.

FINANCIAL AID AT THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT DENVER The financial aid progr am at the University is des i gned ro assist those students who would b e un a ble to a ttend the University without assistance. While the primary responsibility for meeting the costs of education rests with individual students and their f a milies, financial aid funds a r e offered ro supp l ement whatever funds students an d their families can provide. Since requests generally exceed the ava ilability of funds, students and their families should b e aware of procedures and de a dlines in order ro receive m ax imum con side r atio n . Questions and requests for forms should be directed ro th e Office of Financial Aid a nd Student Employment at UCD, Central Classroom Bu i ldin g, R oom 105 , 629-2886. Estimated Expenses Educational expenses at UC D include tuition , fees, and th e cost o f b ooks and related instru c ti o nal materials. Students w h o do not live with their pare nts must also include th e cost of housin g an d food expenses. All students should consider transportation and pers ona l expenditures (i. e . , clothing, ente rtainm ent, e tc.) in determining their expenses. The Office of Financial Aid esta blishes standa rd budgets for different types of students (de p e nd ent students living at h o me w ith parents , single students livin g away f r om h ome, married s t u d ents, e t c.) ro br ing abo ut con sistency and equity in d ete rminin g th e financia l needs of all students. The standard budgets a r e estab lish ed in line with parameters set b y the Colorado Co mmi ssio n on Hig h e r Education a nd th e U.S . D epar tm e nt of Education . For the 1983-84 academic year the standard budgets allowe d $230 per month living a llo wance for d epe nd ent s tud e nts living at home, $495 per mon th for sing l e s tud e nts not living a t home , and $738 per month for m a rried s tudent s . An allowance of $130 per m onth was added per dependent child in th e student's h ome. The living allowance incl uded amo unts for rent , food, u tilities, p erso nal expenses, a nd tr anspor t a tion . The cost of tuiti on, fees, and medical exp e nses for th e 1983-84 academic year was $985 for a resident student and $3,907 for a n onres ident s tud ent. Graduate students were assessed $83 7 as r esidents and $4,155 as nonresidents . Books and supplies were estim a t ed at $290 for the 198 3 84 academic year. All expenses will increase slightly for the 1984-85 academic year. The State of Colorado and th e B oard of R ege nts usu ally set tuition gu id e lines and rates during th e m o nth of June for the summer and acade mi c year. The . standards for living allowances are usually set during the spring semes t er for th e following summer a nd acade mi c year. Students who have additio n a l costs above th e standard allowances can req uest a review of th eir sit uati on by the Financial Aid Com mittee.

Determination of Financial Need and Award Financial need is defined as the difference between the cost of attendance as define d by the institution ( tuition a nd fees, books and supplies, room and board, tr a ns portation and essential incidental expenses) and total re sources availa bl e to the st udent . These resources include a family contri buti on (su mmer savings, term ea rnings , a spouse contribut i on, and a parental contributi on) and awards from age ncies outs ide th e Unive rsity . Financial need is determined by a nati o n a l uniform needs analysis system adm ini s t ered by agencies such as th e American College Testing Pr ogram. This system analyzes income and assets, family size, numb e r of chil dren in post-secondary education, s tud ent independence, e t c., t o determine a reasonable student a nd j or family contributi o n . After the financial need is determined, stude nts are ranked in order of financial need and are aided accor d ing l y until all funds a r e commi tted . The financial aid package normally consis t s of a selfhelp component (loans and j or emp l oyment) and a gift aid component (grants) propor tionate to the available fun d s and ro the numbe r of needy students app l ying. A small portion of Colorado work study f un ds is avai l able ro interested st ud ents who do n ot document fina n cial need.

john M . Prosser, Acting Dean INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE The College of Design and Planning (formerly Co U ege of Environmenta l Design) at UCD offers five graduate programs : the Master of Architecture, Master of Archi tecture in Urban Design , Master of Interior Design , Master of Landscape Architecture , and Master in Planning and Community Development; and one service program , the Center for Community Development and Design. Under graduate programs in the College are avai l able only through the University of Colorado at Boulder , and students interested in the Bachelor of Environmental Design degree should see the catalog for that campus. The College offers programs for two purposes : to train men and women who can meet the comp l ex and demanding chal lenge of developing and shaping the environment, and to provide the practicing professional a means of keep i ng ab reast of cultural and technological changes. In recent years, the roles and responsibilities of t h e environmental design professions have broadened . The social and physical problems encountered by the architect, urban designer, the landscape architect, the planner , the technologist in environmental systems, and the interior designer have minimized the lines of demarcation among these professions and interdependence amo n g them has increased. The College maintains traditional and essential ties with the professions and practitioners in the community, and relies on local professionals ro reinforce its reaching program. The College of Design and P l anning is a member of the Assoc i ation of Collegiate Schools of Architecture and Collegiate Schoo l s of Planning and is rep r esented by its students, faculty, and alumni on various professional boards , committees, and societies. The Architecture Division is accredited by the Nationa l Architectural Accrediting Board. The College's program in p l anning was granted renewed recognition by the American Planning Association in 1980 for a five-year period. In 1981, the landscape program received its initial two-year accreditation from the American Society of Landscape Architects. Full professional status in most environmental design fields generally requires a minimum of five or six years of academic experience and two or three years of practical experience followed by state registration or l icensing through a professional examination. Qualifications for success in these careers are not easily measured . Candidates for this profession must have the ability to comp lete successful l y an academic program ranging from fundamental humanistic and scientific courses through applied technical activity to f ull creative devel opment. They should have a background of secondary education that includes courses in mathematics and physics . Some experience in creative activity may aid them in predetermining if personal satisfaction is derived from the crea tive process. Design and Planning Library Th e D esign and Planning Library, a branch of the Auraria Library , serves as a learning resource center for the design fields. Ir contains the following collections provided to support the curricula of the College : 1. Professiona l reference collection containing technical materials selected to support design a n d p l anning studio projects. 2. Core collection of c irculating materials compri sed of standard works in rhe fields of archirecrure, landscape architecture, interior design, urban design , and urban planning. 3. Collection of p lann i n g docume nt s i ssued by local , regiona l , scare, and federal agencies with an emphas i s on materials pertaining to Colorado communities and concerns. 4. Collection of periodicals relating to the design fields. 5. Reserve collection providing resource materials for required and supplementa l class reading. 6. Small , but growing, nonpr i nt med i a collection w hich includes architectural slides , mu l ti-media kits , microcom puter software , and microforms . In addirion, rhe main Auraria Library houses background a nd resear c h materials of interest to desig n and planning students and faculty, including materials in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and engineering. The br anc h library is ope n 59 hours pe r week, including some evening and weekend hours. The staff includes a librarian, one library assistant, and severa l st u dent assistants. The branch library provides a number of services includ i ng reference a nd research assistance, library-use instruction, and circulation of materials . Additio n a l services , such as interlibrary loans and computer assisted research , are pro vided through the main Auraria Library.

MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE The Division of Architecture offers three degree pro grams, all of which lead ro the Master of Architecture. The three programs are named by typical rime-in-residence: threeyear, rwo-year, and one-year programs. The three and tw o -year programs lead co rhe first professional degree for architectura l practice; the one-year program leads to a second professional degree. The one-year program is open only ro applicants already holding rhe first prof essio nal degree in architecture (generally the bachelor's, occasionally the master 's) and entails a minimum of 32 credit hours. Individually organized srudies are focused on the student's interests in architecture or in architecture with an energy specialization. The rwo-year program is open to holders of the Bachelor of Environmental Design or Architectural Studies degree and is a rranged to receive graduates of rhe Division of Environmental Design at Boulder or simi l ar undergraduate studies ar other schools and entails a minimum of 64 credit hours. The three-year program is open co holders of rhe bachel or ' s degree in all other fields and typically requires 96 c redit hours for comp letion. Curriculum The Division of Architecture is a professional schoo l ; irs role and purpose is the education of men and women who wish to design buildings. The division provides studies in architectura l design , graph i c communications, history and theory, technology, and professional practice. Architectural design is the central activity of the severa l programs and the design studio serves to integrate a r chitectural learning from all course work in rhe supporrive arts and sciences . Mosr studios are conducted on rhe case study method; skill in the definition and the solution of design problems is acquired through the analysis and the working of exercises which simulate actua l building prob lems . Advanced studio options are available with projects in the Center for Community Development and Design. The design thesis is the culmination of architectural studies. Communications courses provide rhe graphic skills nec essary to presen t design ideas . History and theory courses anchor the student's wo rk in social responsibility, and in an understanding of the forces that give shape to buildings and cities. Technology courses give basics in structures, and in the environmental concerns of utilities, heating, lighting, and acoustics. Professional courses provide ex posure to the workings of contemporary practice , and an internship in a practicing professional's office is a course option in the final year. The goa l of all of these studies is competency for the graduates of the division as intelligent, knowledgeable , and creative designers, each ar the threshold of entry to

The curricula focus on the complex problems that are generated by change and growth in a vigorous urban and regional l aboratory. Emphasis is give n to participatory community and publicly funded design, research, a nd technology. Special efforcs are made to use the vast resources available from federal, stare, and local agencies and institutions which are conce ntrated in the imm ediate community . Specific courses a nd projects a r e arranged to incorporate these allied aca demic, civic, a nd citizen inp ut s int o the design processes . The sequential format , content , and progression of the Architecture in Urban Design program has been developed to provide a broad range of study which combines a r c hit ecture, landscape , planning, urb an design, business, and publi c affair s meth odologies. Dire ct contact and coor dination with the activities of the students and faculty in thes e disciplines i s an essential parr of the c urri culum. Import ance is given to the problem-solving processes associated with mixed use complexes, neighborhood , activity cente r , village , town, mainsrreet , and cityscape projects. Specific courses in urban technologi es, urban th eories, e nvironm ental impact analysis, including social and eco nomic planning factors , are available. Options Tw o sequences a r e available m the program. The oneCollege of D esign and Pl anning / 47 year postprofessional program is for stude nts who have obtained a five-year Bachelor of Architecture degree . The other is a Mainstreers non-prelicensing two-yea r gradua t e degree for s tudents who have received a bachelor ' s degree in environmenta l design, l andscape, archi tectural studies, p l anning, business, engineering, socia l scie nces, o r urban studies. In both sequences , studio andjor field work is the focal point for the specializa tion selected b y the student. The projects chosen are deve l oped on an independent study basis. Meetings, seminars , and evaluations are scheduled b etween the student and the faculty advisers. Cognate courses are selected with the g uid ance of the faculty a dvisers from r e l a t ed subjects offered by the Coll ege or o th er units of th e University. Postprofessional In the one-yea r program , the thesis sequence is a s y nthesis of the special factors influencing urban design in o n e of five options: recreational facilities , comm unity devel opment, rehabilitation o r renewal, transportation, and health care. In this p hase students are carefull y adv ised throu g hout the period of their ind epe ndent research and design studies. Opportunities to do state a nd city o utreach work in association with th e Cente r for Community Dev elopment and Design (the College state-wide design aid field program for ethnic and econ omic minorities) are avai l a ble or heavi l y emphasized. Many other rea l problems a nd j or case studies from the comm unity, whic h require a nticipatory a nd feasibility design and deve l opment, also are considered. During the final sequence semes t e r of the one-year program, students have a wide choice of professional e l ectives which can be closely r e l ated to their thesis prob l em selection.

This academic program l ea ding ro the M . L.A. responds ro a perceived need to offer profession a l training that pr epa res studenrs to meet the complex and demanding c h a llenges of shaping th e a rid region l a ndscape . Urba n and rura l dev e l opme nr pressur e in the western reg ion has crea ted an ur ge nr n eed for comprehensive landscape probl e m-solvin g skills . These skills include an understanding of the earth sciences which determine the arid region concep t of "environmenral limits and toler ances. ' The processes described in these related earth sciences provid e a regional concept for designing and pl a nnmg l andscape for public a nd private use , human enrichmenr , and resource conservation . Two pro grams are offered leading to the Master of Landscape Ar c hitecture degree. Studenrs enrering the pro gram without a first professional degree are requir e d ro take a minimum of 96 hours. This is essentially a threeyear program . Applicants who enter with a first professional de g ree ( B . L.A . or B . Ar c h.) are required to take a minimum of 64 credit hours in a two-year program. These two programs offer the candidate an opportunity tO develop an e lective package, parallel to the M . L.A. core c urri c ulum , which would give the student the equiv a l e nt of a related prof essional minor. The electives are included in th e hour requirements for both the twoa nd thre e-yea r programs. A thesis is r equi red of all M . L.A. candidates. The thesis is the culmination of the academic curriculum. More specifically, the thesis sequence requirement c omprises three courses: Resea r ch Methods for Designers and Planners , L andsca pe Ar chitec tur e Thesis Rese arc h , and Landscape Ar c hite c tur e Thesis. The th esis may be a design , research , natural resource, or community development topic, and each must include a case study proof. The Curriculum The curriculum has been planned ro include those awarenesses and skills considered essenrial to core and adva nced professional training in the fie ld of landscape architecture. areas include concentration in design , lan . d and. bmldmg technology, hisrory and theory of the bUilt envtronment, and a working knowledge of natural syst ems. The primary focus of the program is DESIGN and the desi g n process. Opportunities exist to develop com plementary knowl edge a nd skills related to interdisicplinary projects involving the other Colle ge of Design and Planning programs in Ar chitec ture, Planning and Community In Desi g n , and Architectur e in Urban Design . Addi uonally, through the C e nter for Community Development and Design (CCDD is an outr each program in the College of Design and Planning ) , the M.L.A. candidate is afforded the op portunity for actual project experience either in the Denver metr opo litan area or the state of Colorado . The hierarchy of courses from term to term for the most part is planned sequentially leading tO the thesis . Th e thesis is intended to be a comprehensive individual experie nce under th e guidance of the entire L.A . faculty an d a ppli cab l e outside specialists. Admission Requirem e nts Applic ants ro th e three-year program or those who do not have a first professi o n a l degree (Bache l or of Landscape Architecture) should have proficiency in college mathe m atics, physical science, English , envi r o nmental science, a nd a basic course in ar t or drawing. Applicants to th e two-year program having undergrad u ate de grees in urban and region a l planning, architecture, e nvir o nm ental desi gn , or o ther physical design degrees are considered for admission upon individual evaluation of their und ergra duat e curric ulum , scho l astic performance, a nd professional experience. To be consi d e r e d for admission into the g r ad uate programs in l a ndscape architecture, a pplicants must submit ap plication forms, a $20 application fee , officia l college transcripts , three letters of recommen dation, statement of purpose, and a portfolio of academic a nd professional work by March 15 preceding the fall semester they wish t o ente r the program.

Planners build careers in such fields as environmental design , community devel opment , land use and growth management , social services , environmental administration and assessment, policy analysis , energy development, natural resources, land private planning consultation , corporate plan nmg, urban redevelopment , housing, and regional planning . Because Denv e r is the Rocky Mountain West ' s central location for . managing and planning these fields of action, UCD plannmg students are often able to combine learning general principles and skills in the classroom with practical working experience in nearby operating agencies and or ganizations. The program welcomes part-time and non traditional students . Curriculum The curriculum requires 60 semester hours as a minimum for graduation . Forty-five of these semester hours are required core courses aimed at training the student in basic planning purposes , principles, content , research meth ods,. t echniques and implementation. Of these required 3 spen . t in experiential learning and internships w1th public agenaes and other organizations. Three plan making studios are required with one possibility being an integrated studio with the other design divisions in the College , a nd the last studio being a thesis . Another 15 credit hours of the curriculum are elective . The.y are chosen in con.sultation with the student's faculty advtser to form a consistent pattern of planning expertise along the lines of the individual ' s major interests . The courses may be chosen from the MPCD ' s own core electives from other programs in the College of Design and P lanning : or from other graduate schools at UCD and the metro area. The division has organized the following optional areas of sp e cialization: Communiry Devel opment Community E c on o mic R e vit al ization Energy Land Use Re g i o nal Policy Administration Rural and Small Town Planning So c ial Pla nn i ng Transport a ti o n Urban Analysis College of Design and Planning / 51 Neighborhood Planning Planning Administration Regional Analysis Admission Requ i rements Urban Design Urban Economic Development Application forms must be submitted by April 15 for the fall semester. On a space available basis, applications are occasionally accepted for individual semesters. The deadlines in these cases are: July 10 for fall, December 10 for spring, and April 15 for summer . Applications for admission are reviewed by a Faculty-Student Committee . Criteria for admission include academic performance , work experience, interest, and motivation for study . Application forms and information may be obtained by writing to Director, Planning and Community Devel opment Program, College of Design and Planning University of Colorado at Denver , 1100 14th Street: Denver, CO 80202. SPECIAL ACADEMIC PROGRAM To provide unusual educational and practical experiences for outstanding students in all five graduate divisions, the has established an optional , integrated , multidisCiplinary studio. These classes are offered fall semesters to final-year students who choose to work on unique public and private actual design and planning projects for which the College has been asked to provide educational, technica l , and research assistance. During the last six years, more than 2 5 of these comprehensive studies have been completed by teams of students for towns, communities, neighbor hoods , institutions, agencies, and companies. The studio is. !ointly taught by faculty from the five professional dlVlstOns and the Center for Community Development and Design . CENTER FOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND DESIGN Center for Community Development and Design provtdes educanonal and technical assistance to solve design, planning, and community development problems upon request to groups , organizations , neighborhoods, com munities , and small towns that cannot afford or do not have access to these services. The Center provides these services to aid in the development of the community and to encourage local self-reliance. These services are provided by faculty-student research and assistance teams . A central goal of the Center is to combine academic and practical experience of students working with com munity members on problem solving through supervised projects in the field. The faculty and staff of the Center coordinate community projects for which students register through classes in the various academic curricula . Students who register for these projects assume an added respon sibility of satisfying client needs that goes beyond academic credit. Students are expected to do two things: utilize and develop professional expertise which not only enhances their own education but also better prepares them to assist in the community problem-so l ving process , and to develop

PAGE 61

52 / University of Colorado at D enver an understanding for community parnapatory processes and be able to integrate these into the technical aspects of their community project . The types of projects students may select to work on include developing a physical design program for a child care center in an inner-ciry neighborhood; assisting a neighborhood to organize, design, and implement a self help housing program in a small mountain town; and developing a comprehensive plan in cooperation with a planning commission in a Colorado high plains town. Mainstreets Program A joint effort by UCD and the State Department of Local Affairs , this innovative program provides assistance to small towns attempting to restore the economic viability of their retail cores. Interdisciplinary teams of students will work closely wit h the commu nities to address planning , design, and economic development issues (see urban design program options). Please refer to the Master of Architecture in Urban Design program for Mainstreets . Community Research Center Conducting applied social science research on the struc ture and dynamics of communities-whether inner city, suburb, or impacted rural area-is the mission of the Community Research Center (CRC) . With the establish ment of the CRC, the Center for Community Develop ment and Design (CCDD) completes the triangle of what its projects encompass: assista nce, education, and research. In addition to functioning as the in-house research arm on CCDD projects, the CRC also conducts research on a contractual basis for government entities, communities, and designjplanning professionals. The CRC affords Uni versity faculty and students the opportunity co participate in applied research projects. Areas of expe rtise within the CRC include social impact assessment, program evaluation, social surveying, organi zational development , conference planning , and cons ultation to the design and planning profession on the social and behavioral aspects of design and planning.

Paul E. Bartlett, Resident Dean INFORMATION ABO UT THE PROF ESSION Through engineering the resources of nature are used for the benefit of humaniry and the environment. Engineers today are expected not only to be in the forefront of high technology, but significant conttibutors co the betterment of the environment in the social and humanistic sense as well. Engineering professional societies have committed themselves to the principle that, as mankind gains the abiliry to build more powerful machines and more useful devices, there must be a strong and successful effort to protect natural resources and the environment. An engineering career demands hard work, and so does an engineering education. In return engineers have excellent opportunities to work in various places , meet new challenges, or move upward in management . The engineer is generally well paid and usually in demand; in the rare times when there is a surplus of certain kinds of engineers, individuals usually have lirtle difficulry finding atttaccive opportunities in other fields. Currently , registration is required in all states for the legal right to practice professional engineering. Although there are variations in the state laws, graduation from an accredited curriculum in engineering, subscription to a code of ethics, and four years of qualifying experience are required . In addition , two days of examinations covering the engineering sciences and the applicant ' s practical ex perience are required in most states . A listing of the fields in which engineers work would have many hundreds of entties . The following list gives only a brief summary . The aerospace engineering sciences prepare engineers for an industry that encompasses the design and consttuction of both commercial and military aircraft and the devel opment and fabrication of space vehicles. Advances in this technology have permitted the industry to enter als o the fields of urban mass ttansit, undersea explo r ation, bio engineering, nuclear engineering, laser techno l ogy, and many other emerging high technology fields. An aerospace engineer often works at the forefront of engineering with scientists in the fields of mathematics , physics, chemistry, biology , etc. Applied mathematics meets the need of modern research, which is dependent upon advanced mathematical concepts. Almost all concerns that are engaged in industrial and scientific research today need applied mathematicians, as do organizations involved in computational work, statistical analysis , or scochastics. Architectural engineering involves work within the build ing industry in engineering design, consrruction and con tracting , or sales engineering . Areas of specialization are: construction engineering , environmental engineering, or struCtural engineering . Chemical engineers convert natural resources into in dustrial and consumer products in facilities chat include refineries and gasification planes. Among their products are many that often are not identified with chemica l engineering-oi ls, metals , glass, plastics, rubber, paints, soaps and detergents , foods, beverages, synthetic and natura l fibers, nuclear and exotic fuels, medicines, and many others. Civil engineering offers an interesting and challenging career in the design and construction of buildings , bridges, dams, aqueducts , and other structures; in transportation systems including highways , canals , pipelines, airports, rapid transit lines, railroads , and harbor facil ities ; in the ttansmission of water and the regulation of rivers; in the development of water resources for urban use, industry, and land reclamation ; in the control of water qualiry through water purification and proper waste treatment; in the consttuction and contracting industry; and in the problems concerned with mankind's physica l environment and the growth of cities. Computer science involves work in the theory, design, and application of computers and computational methods. It includes design and consrruction of efficient software systems as well as hardware design and manufacture . The application of microprocessors to many areas of engineering has opened new doors in computer engineering and computer science. Electrical engineering offers professional possibilities that include teaching and research in a universiry; research in development of new elecrrical or elecrronic devices, in struments, or products ; design of equipment or systems; production and qualiry-conttol of electtical products for private industry or government; and sales or management for a private firm or branch of government . There are numerous specialties within electrical engineering. Among them are the design and application of computer systems; elecrromagnetic fields, which are basic to radio, television, and related syst ems; communication theory and signal

56 / Univ e rsit y of Colorado at Denv e r processing; electrical machinery; solid-state , integrated-cir cuit, and elecrron devices; energy and power control systems; and others. The e ngineering physicist works where new kinds of engineering are being born, or where many fields are being used jointly. General knowledge of the diverse fields of physics provides the abiliry to deal with industrial problems that cannot be solved by a standardized procedure in a specialized field. Me c hanical engineering is very broad in scope, not identified with or restricted to a particular technology, vehicle , device, or system but instead is concerned with all such subjects, both individually and collectively. Typical starting assignments for the graduating senior include positions with oil, construction, and automotive industries, or in computer-aided design j computer-aided manufac turing (CAD j CAM) . INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE Undergraduate Degree Programs The College of Engineering at the University of Colorado .offers a total of 18 engineering bachelor degree programs through the following eleven departments located on three campuses-Boulder (UCB) , Denver (UCD) , and Colorado Springs (UCCS) . Aerospace Engineering Sciences (Boulder) Applied Mathematics (Denver) Chemical Engineering (Boulder) Civil Engineering (Denver) Civil , Environmental, and Architectural Engineering (Boulder) Computer Science (Denver) Electrical Engineering (Denver) Electrical Engineering (Boulder) Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (Colorado Springs) Mechanical Engineering (Boulder) Mechanical Engineering (Denver) Mathematics (Colorado Springs) The 18 Bachelor of Science academic degree programs are offered as follows: 9 in Boulder, 5 in Denver , and 4 in Colorado Springs . The College of Engineering and Applied Science at UCD offers four-year programs leadin g to the B.S. degree in civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics. The civil , electrical, and mechanical engineering programs are currently accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Com mission (EAC) of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Availability of Degree Programs The University of Colorado at Denver (UCD) will accept for matriculation only those prospective engineering students who designate a degree program awarded by the UCD College of Engineering and Applied Science. For 1984-85, the following engineering degrees are awarded by UCD : civil engineering, computer science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and applied mathe matics. Students desiring degree programs other than those named above must apply to the campus awarding the degree. In some cases, the University campus accepting the student may grant permission to take courses on another CU campus, subject to enrollment limit ations. In such cases, the engineering department of the admitting campus will counsel the student in the preparation of course schedules. The course requir ements during the freshman year are detailed within the curricu lum given under each depart ment. Some of the sophomore year is common to all, and the remainder of the courses begin to point to the various fields of engineering taught; real specialization begins, however , in the junior year and carries on through the senior year . A fifth year of study leading to the master's degree is strongly urged for qualified students of more than usual ability who feel they can profit from additional study. At UCD it is also possible for a student to obtain a bachelor's degree in engineering and a bachelor's degree in business in five years plus one or two summer terms. Any of the engineering degree programs can be modified for an excellent premedical program. If liberal arrs students elect certain courses in science, mathematics, and engineering as undergraduates, they may earn an engineering degree in four semesters after graduation from the College of Liberal Arcs and Sciences. Graduate Degree Programs UCD offers graduate degree programs in civil engi neering , compu ter science, electrical engineering , mechanical engineering , and applied mathematics . For information regarding courses and requirements leading to the Master of Engineering, Master of Science, or to the Ph.D. degree, see the Graduate School section of this bulletin . Summer Courses Summer term courses are planned for regular students and those who must dear deficiencies . Courses also are offered for high school graduates who wish to enter as freshmen and for those who need to remove subject deficiencies. Students should write to the UCD Office of Admissions and Records for the Schedule of Summer Courses. For some students there are advantages in starting their college careers during the summer term. Some required freshman and sophomore courses are normally offered at UCD during the summer. The summer term gives students a head start and enables them to take a lighter load during the fall semester or take additional courses to enrich their program. Scholarships, Fellowships, and Loan Funds Money contributed to the University Development Foun dation for assistance to engineering students is deposited in appropriate accounts and used according to the restricrions imposed by the donors. Numerous industries match em ployee contributions. A list of companies contributing to scholarships and fellowships and different loan funds

Student Organizations A general student organization, known as the Associated Engineering Students (AES), of which all students in the College are members, has supervision of matters of interest to the whole group. Student cha p t e r s (or clubs) of the following professional societies are well established at UCD: American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Institute 'of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Society of Women Engineers (SWE) These societies meet frequently to present papers, speak ers, films, and other programs of technical interest. The following honorary engineering societies have active student chapters in the College of Engineering and Applied Science: Chi Epsilon, civil and architectural fraternity Eta Kappa Nu, e l ectrical engineering society Tau B eta Pi, engineering society REQUIREMENTS FOR ADMISSION The student must meet the admission requirements described in the General Information section of this bulletin and of the College of Engineering at which the degree program selected by the student is offered. UCD currently offers the following programs : civil engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and app lied mathematics. Persons of sufficient maturity and expe rience who do not meet the prescribed requirements for admission may be admitted upon approval of the resident dean . Beginnin g students in engineering should be prepared to start analytic geometry-calculus. No credit toward any degree in engineering will be given for algebra , trigonometry , or precalculus mathematics (Math . 101 , 111 , 112, and 113) but these cou rses will be offered to allow a student to make up deficiencies. Any student who questions the adequacy of his or her pre-college background in math ematics should see the applied mathem atics coordinator for suggestions . Diag n ostic tests covering precalculus math ematics are at the Auraria Book Center to assist new freshmen in selecting the appropriate beginning mathe matics course. To be prepared for the type of mathematics courses that will be taught, the student must be competent in the basic ideas and skills of ordinary algebra , geometry and plane trigonometry. These include such topics as the fundamental operations with algebraic expressions, expo nents and radicals, fractions, simple faaoring, solution of linear and quadratic equations, graphical representation , simple systems of equations, complex numbers, the bi nomial theorem, arithmetic and geometric progressions, logarithms , the trigonometric functions and their use in College of Eng ineering and Applied Scienc e / 57 triangle solving and simple applications, and the standard theorems of geometry, including some sol id geometry . It is estimated that it will usually take seven semesters to cover this material adequately in high school. It is strong l y recommended that students take at least two units of a foreign language in high school. Beginning in 1987 , two years of a foreign language in high school will be a requirement for admission to the College of Engineering .

58 / University of Colorado at Denver Transfer Students Students transferring from other accredited collegiate institutions may be considered for admission on an in dividual basis if they meet the requirements outlined in the General Information section of this bulletin and the freshman requirements for entering the College of Engi neering and Applied Science. Intrauniversity transfers , within the same campus of the University, to the College of Engineering and Applied Science will be considered on an individual basis if both of the following conditions are fulfilled : 1 . Enrollment limitations permit . 2. The student's prior academic record fulfills the admissions requirements of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Intercampus transfers of students from one campus of the University to another will be considered on an individual basis if the following conditions are fulfilled: 1. Enrollment limitations permit. 2. The student has a minimum of 30 hours m an engineering curriculum at that campus, not counting transfer hours . 3. If an engineering student, the student is in good academic standing with at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average for all courses attempted and for all courses that count toward graduation requirements. If not an engineering student , the student's academic record has all that fulfills the admission requirements of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Interdepartmental transfers, whether on the same campus or from one campus to another within the College of Engineering, require the approval of both the gaining and losing departments in addition to the intercampus and intrauniversiry transfer requirements listed above. Some course sequences should be completed before transferring to another campus; therefore, it is strongly recommended that students who contemplate transferring campuses see their department adviser prior to initiating the transfer request. Both intrauniversity and intercampus transfers are subject to review by a faculty committee which evaluates the applicant's qualifications for academic success in engineering subjects . TRANSFER CREDIT After a prospective transfer student has made application and submitted official transcripts to the University of Colorado, Office of Admissions and Records , that office issues a Statement of Advanced Standing (currently Form 382) listing those coqrses that are acceptable by University standards for transfer . A copy of this statement is sent to the student and to the resident dean's office by the Office of Admissions and Records and is made a part of the permanent record. The appropriate engineering faculty departmental representative will use this copy of the form to indicate which of those credits listed may be acceptable toward the 128-hour graduation requirement in the College of Engineering and Applied Science and note the tentative acceptance of these credits by dating and initialing each acceptable course listed on the Statement of Advanced Standing. The student should be aware that the acceptance is tentative and is contingent upon satisfactory completion of a minimum of 30 semester hours at the University of Colorado before the credits may be officially applied toward the degree requirements . It is the responsibility of transfer students , after having completed the 30 semester credit hours at the University of Colorado, to request final validation of the credits by their department and to have this validation noted on the Statement of Advanced Standing kept in the resident dean ' s office. If at any time a student wishes to have a course not previously accepted considered again for transfer, the student should consult with the departmental transfer adviser and complete a petition to the resident dean through the department chairman . All transfer credit must be validated by satisfactory achievement in subsequent courses. NONTRANSFERABLE CREDITS Students desiring to transfer credits from engineering technology programs should note that such credits are accepted only upon the submission of evidence that the work involved was fully equivalent to that offered in this College. There are technology courses given with titles and textbooks identical to those of some engineering courses. These may still not be equivalent to engineering courses because of emphasis that is nonmathematical or otherwise divergent. In order to assist engineering technology students with transfer planning, the following guidelines have been established : Courses on basic subjects such as mathematics, physics, literature, or history m a y be acceptable for direct transfer of credit if they were taught as part of an accredited program for all students and were not specifically designated for technology students. Students who have taken technology courses (courses with technology designations) that may be valid equivalents for engineering courses have these options: 1 . They may petition faculty advisers to waive the requirement for the course. The requirement for a course can be waived if students demonstrate that, by previous course work , individual study, or work experience they have acquired the background and training normally provided by the course. No credit is given toward graduation for a waived course, but students may benefit from the waiver by being able to include more advanced work later in their curriculum. Other students may profit by taking• the course at this College instead and thus establish a fully sound basis for what follows . 2. Credit for a course may be given if the course work was done at an accredited institution of higher education . The University of Colorado department involved may recommend that credit be transferred to count toward the requirements for a related course in its curriculum. Credit cannot be given for vocational-technical or remedial courses under rules of the University . (See section on transfer of college-level credit in the General Information section of this bulletin.) 3. Students may seek credit for the course by exam ination .

ACADEMIC POLICIES Refer to the General Information section of this bulletin for descriptions of University-wide policies. The following policies apply specifically to the College of Engineering and A pplied Science. Advanced Placement Advanced placement credit may be granted by special examination of the department involved or by College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB ) tests. If the applicant has scored 4 or 5 on the CEEB Advanced Placement Examination, credit toward graduation may be awarded . Students who have scored 3 may be considered for advanced placement by the department concerned. All advanced placement and transfer credit must be validated by sat isfactory achievement in subsequent courses , in accordance with standard transfer policies of the College . Advanced placeme nt credit for th e freshman mathematics courses in calculus will be limited to not more than 4 hours each . Attendance Regulations Successful work in the College of Engineering and Applied Science is dependent upon regular attendance in all classes. Students who are unavoidably absent should make arrangements with instructors to make up the work missed. Students w h o, for illness or other good reason, miss a final examination must notify the instructor or the resident dean ' s office n o later than the end of the day on whic h the examination is given. Failure to do so will result in an F in the course. Changing Departments Students who wish to change to another department within the College of Enginee rin g and Applied Science must apply for transfer by submitting a Change of Major for Undergraduate D egree Students form which muse have the approval of both depart m e nts concerned. (See also discussion of in t erdepartmental transfe r requirements under Transfer Students.) College-Level Examination (CLEP) Credit Prospective students may earn college-level credit through the College-Level Examination Program (C L E F ) subject examinations , provided that they score at the 67th percentile or above. Departments will advise students of the credits accept ed for such courses. The number of credits so earned must be within the limits of the number of elective hours of th e individual department. A list of subjects in which CLEF examination credit will b e accepted may be obtained from the College of Engineering and Appli e d Science office. (See also College-Level Examination Program in the General Information section of chis bulletin.) (CL E F general examinations are not acceptab l e . ) Counseling Freshman students are counseled by the resident dean ' s office and by representatives from each academic depart ment. These representatives are readi l y available to assist s tudents with academic, vocatio nal, o r personal concerns. C ollege of Eng ineering and Applied Science / 59 Students a r e assi gned specific departmental advisers for academic planning and shoul d consult with the depart mental chai rman or designate d representative for assign ment. Course Load Policy Full-time Students. Undergraduate students employed less than 10 hours per week should register for the regu l ar work as outlined in the departmental curricula. Additional courses may be all owed whe n there is satisfactory evidence that these extra courses can be taken profitably and creditably. P ermission to take more than 21 hours may be granted only after written petition and approval of the departmental chairman and the resident dean. Employe d Students. Suggested maximum course loads for undergraduate students employed 10 or more hou r s per week are as follows: Employed 40 o r more hours per week-two c ourses (maximum of 9 semester hours) Emplo y ed 3 0 ro 39 h ours per week-three courses (maximum of 1 2 semester hours) Employed 20 to 29 hours per week-four courses (maximum of 15 semester hours) Employed 10 ro 19 hours per week-five courses ( maximum of 18 semester hours) Freshman Year Fundamenta l s taught in the freshman year are of prime importance in the more advanced classes, and every effort is made to register a beginning freshman in the prope r courses . (Course r equirements for freshmen are detailed within the curriculum give n under each department . ) All freshmen are urged to consult their instructors whenever they need help in their assignments. Repetition of Courses Students may not register for credit in a course in which they already have received a grade of C or bette r . When a stude nt t akes a course for credit more t han once, all grades are used in determining the grade-point average . An F grade in a required course necessitates a subsequent satisfactory completion of the course . No Credit An engineering student must petition for approval before enrolling no credit (NC) for any course . Required courses ma y not be taken for no credi t . Once a course has been taken NC, the course can n ot be repeated for credit. Work Experience It is the policy of th e College of Engineering and Applied Science that any credits accrue d in the official records of the student that were awarded for work experie nce (or for Cooperative Education experience) will not apply as part of the hours required for an engineering degree. College Policy on Academic Progress An engineering student muse maintain a cumulative grade -p oint average of 2.0 o r better, in hours attemp ted at the University of Colorado and in addition for those courses required t oward graduation requirements , in o rd e r

PAGE 69

60 / Universit y of Colorado at Denver tO remain in good standing in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Grades earned at another institution are not used in calculating the grade-point average at the University of Colorado. However, grades earned in another school or college within the Ur..iversity of Colorado will be used in determining the student's scholastic standing and progress or lack of progress toward the Bachelor of Science degree in the College qf Engineering and Applied Science. Students whose overall average falls below 2.0 will be placed on probation for the next semester in which they are enrolled in the College and will be so notified . If, after that semester the student ' s average is still below 2.0, the student will be suspended from the College . The following is additional information and interpretation of the policy: 1. Students who have been suspended are suspended indefinitely and may not enroll at any University of Colorado campus during any regular academic year, September through May , but may enroll in summer sessions or Vacation College and j or may take correspondence courses for credit through the Division of Continuing Education. 2. Students who have been suspended may app l y for readmission during the second semester following their suspension if they bring their University of Colorado cumulative average up to a 2.0 through summer session, Vacation College, and j or correspondence work applying to engineering degree requirements as approved by a member of the Academic Progress Committee. 3. Students, upon satisfactori l y completi n g at another college or university a minimum of 12 semester hours of acceptable work appropriate to an engineering curriculum subsequent to suspension , may apply for readmission as a transfer student during the second semester following their suspension. 4. Applicants for readmission tO the University of Colorado cannot be assured readmission. 5 . During a probation semester the student must com plete a normal load, i.e., 12 hours or more (for a full time student) of courses counting toward graduation requirements . Physical education courses do not count; if the student has previously completed 6 hours of ROTC courses, ROTC courses do not count; if the required hours of social-humanistic subjects have been completed, social humanistic subjects do not count. 6. Students who have been on probation or suspension at any rime in the past will automatically be suspended if their overall average again falls below a 2.0. Details of the probationary and suspension status and of the conditions for return to good academic standing will be stipu l ated in the letters of probation and suspension. Information regarding these matters may be obtained in the Office of the Resident Dean, Room UA 516 . In addition to College policies , departments within the College may set standards of progress within their de partment. Academic Ethics {Dishonesty, Cheating) Students are expected to conduct themselves in accor dance with the highest standards of honesty and integrity. Cheating, plagiarism, illegitimate possession and disposition of examinations, alteration, forgery , or falsification of official records, and similar acts or attempts to engage in such acts are grounds for suspension or expu l sion from the University. In particular, students are advised that plagiarism consists of any act involving the offering of the work of someone e lse as the student's own . It is recommended that students consu lt with their instrucrors as ro the proper preparation of reports, papers, etc. , in order to avoid this and similar offenses. At UCD there is a code of Student Standards of Conduct. A copy of the code and information regarding all student grievance procedures may be obtained in the Student Academic Services office. Grading System, lncompletes, Pass/Fail and Drop/Add Procedures See the General Information section of this bulletin for the University of Colorado uniform grading system and for additional pass jfail information and drop j add pro cedures. Also see the current S c h edule of Courses. GRADING SYSTEM It is particularly important to note that in the College of Engineering and Applied Science courses ro be counted toward fulfilling the graduation requirements cannot be taken no credit (NC). INCOMPLETES An incomplete may be given by the instructor for circumstances beyond the student ' s control, such as a documented medical or personal emergency . When it is given, the student, the resident dean's office, and the departmental office are informed , in writing, by the instructOr who states what the student is to do in order ro remove the incomplete and when the tasks are to be completed . The instrucror may assign only the I/ F grade. The student is expected ro complete the course requirements, e . g . , the final examination and term paper, within the established deadline and not to retake the entire course. The grade will be converted autOmatically to a grade of F after one year unless the specified work is completed. PASS/FAIL The primary purpose for offering courses on a pass/ fail grade basis is to encourage students, especially juniors and seniors, tO broaden their educational experience by e l ecting challenging courses without serious risk to their academic records. In general passjfail should be limited ro 300or 400-level courses. Students must process the passjfail form during the first two weeks of the semester. Engineering students cannot take required courses pass/ fail. Below are specific pass jfail regulations for the College of Engineering and Applied Science. 1. A maximum of 16 passjfail hours may be included in a student's total program . A maximum of 6 hours may be taken in one semester , but it is recommended that not more than one course at a time be taken pass/ fail. 2. Courses that a student may elect tO take passjfail shall be designated and approved in advance by the student ' s

PAGE 70

major department. If courses not so designated are taken, the earned grade will be recorded in place of the P . An engineering student who has not designated a major field will not be allowed t he passjfail option without approval through the resident dean's office. 3. A transfer student may count roward graduation one credit hour of passjfail for each 9 credit hours comp l eted in the College; however, the maximum n umber of pass jfail hours counting toward graduation shall not exceed 16 , including courses taken in the Honors Program under that program's passjfail grading system . 4. Students on academic probation should not enroll for passjfail courses. DROP/ADD See the General Information section of this bulletin for drop jadd procedures and deadlines. Only under very extenuating circumstances will petitions for dropping courses be considered after the tenth week of the semester. Sequence of Courses Full-time students should complete the courses in the department in which they are registered according ro the curriculum shown under their major department in this bulletin . Pan-time students may need to modify the order of courses with adviser approval. Any required course failed should be repeated as soon as the course is offered again. Students who receive a grade of D or F in a course that is prerequisite to another may not register for the succeeding course unless they have the permission of both the department and the instructor of the succeeding course. Students may enroll for as much as 50 percent of their courses in work that is not a part of the prescribed c u rricu l a of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, provided they have at least a 2.0 grade average in all college work attempted. Exceptions to this policy may be made by petition and may be made for students admitted to the engineering-business program. Graduat ion W ith Hono r s In recognition of high scholastic and professional at tainments , Honors or Special Honors (at the discretion of the Engineering Honors and Recognition Committee) will be awarded at graduation. These honors will be recorded on the diplomas of the graduates receiving them and indicated in the commencement program . Social-Humanistic Content of the Engineering Curriculum The faculty of the College of Engineering and Applied Science requires that 18 semester hours shall be considered the minimum of social-humanistic content of the degree granting departments . However , some departments require 24 semester hours. Six hours of social-humanistic subjects should be taken at the junior level and 6 at the senior level. T hese subjects sho u ld be taken from the following categories , with no more c han half from any one of t he t hree catego ries listed below: College of Engineering and Applied Science / 6 1 1. Literature (including forei gn lit eratu r e e i t her in t h e o r iginal or in tra n s l ation). 2. Economics, sociology , political science, history , an t h ropology, and psychology. 3. Fine arcs and music (critical or historical). Courses such as accounting, contracts, manageme nt , elementary foreign languages , public speaking, and technical w r iting should be used as technical electives where ap plicable . (Elective courses are ro be coordinated with the faculty adviser.) Qualified studen t s will be permitted ro take approp r iate honors courses for social-humanistic eleaives. The Humanities and Literature Program is designed t o develop comm u nication and analytical skills which are essential for every professional pe r son. Engineering students may selea courses from the three components of the program: 1. Hum. 101, an interdisciplinary , team-taught class, is a core course in the Honors in Humanities Program offered by the D ivision of Arts and Humanities (see t he College of Libera l Arrs and Sciences, Division of Arts an d Humanities , section of this b ull etin for details). 2. A sequence of seven Gteat Books courses. This series, chronolog ically arranged, begins wit h th e Classical Heritage and ends with Contemporary World Literature. Students may take any of these courses . They need no t be taken in order; rather , stu d ents should choose those historical periods of most interes t ro them. (T h e sequence is Engl. 251, 252, 253, 254, 256, 257, 258 -see the English course descriptions for details.) 3. Engl. 120 , Introduction to Fiction , an d E n gl. 130, Introduction to Poetry and Drama , focus on methodology more than the Great Books sequence, dealing wit h analy ses of l iterary forms and structures . Students shou l d determine the specific requirements of their particular degree programs with respea to humanities and literature . PLANNING AN ENGINEERING PROGRAM It is the responsibility of students to be sure they have fulfilled all the requirements, to fil e che intended dace of graduation in the departmental office at the dose of the third year, ro fill our a Diploma Card at registration at the beginning of che last semester, and ro keep che departmental adviser and che resident dean ' s office informed of any changes in the students' plans throughout che l ast year. In order to become eligible for one of che bachelo r's degrees in the College of Engineering and App lied Science, a student , in addition to being in good standing in the University , m u st meet the following minim u m require ments : Courses. The satisfactory completion of the prescribe d and elective work in any curriculum as determined b y the appropriate department. Hours. A minimum of 128 hours, of which the last 30 shall be earned af ter mat ricu l a tion and admission as a degree student in t h e College of Engineering and Applie d Science at CU is r equired for students in che four year cur r icula; however, many students may need co pre sent more than the minimum ho urs because of cert ain de-

PAGE 71

62 / Unive rsity of Colorado at Denve r partmental requirements and because they may have en rolled in courses which do not carry full credit coward a degree. The hours required for students in the business and engineering program vary by departments; as a guide, 158 semester hours are considered a minimum, but most students follow programs that bring the total above this figure. Grade Average. A minimum grade-point average of 2 . 0 (C) for all courses attempted and (separately computed) for all required courses. A department may require a C average or a minimum grade of C in all major courses. Faculty Recommendation. The recommendation of the faculty of the department offering the degree and the recommendation of the faculty of the College of Engineering and Applied Science. lncompletes and Correspondence Courses. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that all incompletes and correspon dence courses are officially completed before the tenth week of the student's final semester in school. Simultaneous Conferring of Degrees. For business and engineering students, the degree B.S. in business and the degree B . S . in engineering must be conferred at the same commencement . Commenceme nt Exercises. Commencement exercises are held in May . Students finishing in December and August may attend commencement the following May or receive diplomas by mail. UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES In addition to the standard four-year degree programs previously listed, the College is involved in the following programs . Business and Engineering Curricula Undergraduates in the College of Engineering and Applied Science with career interests in administration may complete all of the requirements for both a B . S . degree in engineering and a B .S. degree in business by extending their study programs to five years, including one or cwo summer terms. The 48 semester credits required in the College of Business and Administration may be started in the second , third, or fourth year, depending upon the curriculum plan for the particular field of engineering in which the student is enrolled . Students caking these undergraduate programs are not required to submi t formal application for admission to the College of Business. However, before enrolling in any business courses, the student must see an adviser and have approval from the College of Business . Requirements for the undergraduate business degree and engineering degree muse be completed concurrently . At least a 2.0 grade average must be earned in all courses undertaken in the College of Business . Not fewer than 30 semester credits in business courses must be earned co establish residency credit. Courses offered by the College of Business may be used in l ieu of electives required for undergraduate engineering degrees , subject co the approval of the individual department. It is also possible for qualified graduates (GPA: 3 . 0 or better) to complete the requirements for a master ' s degree in business within one year after recetvmg the baccalaureate degree in engineering . Before deciding upon the business option, a student should carefully consider, in consultation with departmental advisers, the relative advantages of the B .S. businessB . S . engineering curricula , the degree program of the Graduate School of Business Administration, and the M.S. degree program in the student ' s own engineering discipline. The required nonbusiness courses are listed in the College of Business and Administration section of this bulletin. The business requirements for this program are as follows: CourJeJ S emeJter Houri Econ. 201 and 202 .

All c ours e work in the area of emphasis must be taken in the University of Colorado College of Business and Admi niStration . . . . . . . . _!l Total 48 The student should note that for some courses , and for some areas of emphasis, there are prerequisites which must be met. Since some of the courses may be taken as engineering electives, it is possible to obtain the two degrees in as few as 158 semester hours; however , most students will require more. Joint Engineering Degrees A student may obtain two engineering degrees by meeting the requirements and, by petition, obtaining the approval of both departments concerned. Thirty hours of elective or required subjects in addition to the largest minimum number required by either of the two depart ments must be completed. Of the 30 additional hours for the second degree, a minimum of 24 hours shall be in courses in the department concerned or in courses approved in writing in advance by the department as substitutes. Premedicine Option A professional school in a field such as medicine requires a student to have a college education prior to pursuing its professional courses. In practically all cases, medical

PAGE 72

students are university graduates, although occasionally a student may enter medical school after three years of university training. A student can prepare for medical school either in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences or in the College of Engineering and Applied Science . The desirability of obtaining an engineering education prior to undertaking a study of medicine is increasing continually, as medicine itself is evolving . A great deal of addi tional equipment, most of it electronic, is being developed to assist the medical practitioner in treatment of patients. Bio-engineering, engineering systems analysis, probability, and communication theory are highly applicable to medi cal problems. Improved communication techniques also are allowing the storage and retrieval of information not previously avai lable to the medical doctor. An advanced knowledge of basic mathematics and computing techniques, along with increased understanding of physical chemistry, are improvin g the scientific base upon which medical know l edge rests. It is therefore desirable that the medical practit i oner and researcher in the future be well equipped with the tools which engineering can offer. To provide at least a minimum of the necessary know l edge, the additional courses listed below are pre scribed and must be completed with superior grades . General overall requirements for entry into most medical schools are given. Students can meet these requirements by careful substitution of electives in the engineering curricu l um. In some cases where additional hours may be required , interested students should consult with the en gi n eer in g department chairman. General chemistry (103-106) . . . . . . . . 2 sem .

(3 sem. hrs . ) To prepare for a career in medicine in the College of Engineering and Applied Science, it is strongly recom mended that the student follow a full four-year college program and earn a B . S . degree. The Admissions Committee of the University of Colorado School of Medicine welcomes inquiries and visits from prospective students, particularly at the time of their first interest in medicine as theit chosen profession . Students desiring to enter a premedical program should consult the representative of the department involved. At UCD, premedical advising is available through the Health Careers Adviser, Science Bldg. , Room 223C. GRADUATE STUDY IN ENGINEERING The College of Engineering and Applied Science at UCD offers graduate programs in civil engineering, computer science , electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics. For information regarding courses and requirements l eading to the degrees Master of Engineering, Master of Environmental Science, Master of Science or co the Ph.D. degree , see the Graduate School section of this bulletin. College of Engineering and Applied Science / 63 Education for Employed Professional Engineers Continuing education for employed engineers grows more important each year. Therefore, the College puts great emphasis upon making graduate courses available through nifht and televised courses. The Master of En gineering degree permits grad uate students more flexibility in defining specialized interdisciplinary fields that meet their professional needs. This degree has standards fully equivalent to those of the Master of Science degree . In addition to credit course work, the College works jointly with the Division of Continuing Education to offer noncredit courses of interest co practicing engineers . Concurrent B.S. and M.S. Degree Program in Engineering Students who plan co contin ue in the Graduate Schoo l after completing the requirements for the B.S. degree may apply for admission to the concurrent degree program through their department early in the second semester of their junior year (after completion of at least 80 semester hours). Requirements are the same as for the two degrees taken separately: 128 credit hours for the B.S . degree and 30 credit hours for the M.S. degree. Socia l -humanistic requirements must be completed within the first 128 credit hours . A 3 . 0 grade-point average for all work attempted through the first six semesters (at least 96 credit hours) and written recommendations from at least two major-field faculty members are required . The purpose of the concurrent degree program is co allow the student, who qualifies for graduate study and expects co continue for an advanced degree, to plan his/ her graduate program from the beginning of the senio r year rather than from the first year of graduate study. The student can then reach the degree of proficiency required to begin research at an earlier time, and can make better and fuller use of courses offered only in alternate years. Students will be assigned faculty advisers co help them develop the program best suited to theit particular interests. Those in the program will be encouraged co pursue independent study on research problems or in areas of specialization where no formal courses are offered. A libe ral substitution policy will be follo wed for courses normally required in the last year of the undergraduate curriculum. The program selected must be planned so that the student may qualify for a B .S. degree after comp l eti n g the credit hour requirements for the degree if the student so elects, or if the student's grade-point average falls below the 3.0 requited co remain in the prog ram. In this case, all hours completed with a passing grade while in the program will count toward fulfilling the normal requirements for the B.S. degree. There will be no credit given coward a graduate degree for courses applied to the B.S. degree requirements; however, students are still eligible to apply for admission co the Graduate School under the rules set forth in the Graduate School section of this bulletin. Normally, however , the student will apply for admissio n to the Graduate School when at least 122 of the 128 credit hours requited for the B .S. degree have bee n

PAGE 73

64 / University of Colorado at Denver comp let ed, and will be awarded the B.S. and M.S. degrees simu lt aneously upon meeting the requirements set forth for the concurrent degree program. Graduate Work in Business Undergraduates in engineering who intend co pursue graduate study in business may complete some of the business background requirements as electives in their undergraduate programs. Seniors in engineering who have such intentions and appear likely tO qualify for admission to graduate study in business may be permitted to register for any of the graduate fundamentals courses which are designed to provide qualified students with needed back ground preparation in business. Students should see an adviser from the College of Business for approval . AEROSPACE ENGINEERING SCIENCES Admission to this program must be approved by the department at the Boulder campus. The primary objective of the aerospace engineering sciences curriculum is to provide sound general training in subjects fundamental to the practice of and research in this branch of engineering sciences. The major part of the first three years is devoted to the study of mathematics, physics, mechanics, chemistry, and the humanities . The fourth year is devoted to the professional courses in the fields of physics of fluids (fluid dynamics); propulsion and energy conversion; flight dynamics, control , and guidance; space system analysis; materials and structural mechanics; space environment; and bioengineering . The minimum total number of semester hours for the B.S. degree is 128 and business courses may not be substituted for technical electives in the aerospace curric ulum. The complete aerospace engineering sciences program is not available at UCD . Therefore , students wishing to complete this program must apply to the University of Colorado at Boulder. The complete curriculum , degree requirements , and descriptions of courses may be found in the Universit y of Colorado at Boulder Catalog. Curriculum for B.S.

Sherrill III, Coordinator The Division of Natural and Physical Sciences in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers all courses in mathematics, both required and elective, for undergraduate and graduate students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Three curricula leading to the degree B.S. (A.Math . ) are offered . In Option I, the student takes a minor in a specific engineering department, satisfying an adviser from that department. In Option II, the student takes distributed course work in engineering departments, including a solid grounding in mechanics, electronics, and materials. Option III is a joint mathematics-computer science program. Regardless of the option chosen, each student is expected to comp let e a minimum of 4 5 semester hours of course work in mathematics beginning with Math. 140. Modern industrial and scientific researc h is so dependent on advanced mathematical concepts that applied mathe maticians are needed today by almost all concerns which are engaged in such research. The undergraduate curriculum is designed to give training in mathematics and in engineering and science. The use of numerical methods and electronic computers is included . Nontechnical electives should be broadening and have cultural value. Courses in the humanities and the social sciences are required. Students interested in research should take a foreign language as early as possible. Beginning language courses are normally considered technical electives but may count toward the social-humanistic electives. Some 300and 400-level language courses may be counted. Under all circumstances, a student must plan a complete

PAGE 74

program and obtai n the approval of a departmental adviser at the beginning of the sophomore year . The B.S. degree in applied mathematics for new freshmen r equires the comp letion of a minimum of 128 credit hours of course work with an average grade of C or better (a 2.0 grade-point average) and a grade of C or better in all math ematics courses. C o urse work in the social-hu mamsnc elective area must be appro ved by the student ' s adviser. Curriculum for B.S. (Applied Mathematics) FRESHMAN YEAR Fall Semester Semester Hours Marh. 140 .

66 / University of Colorado at D enver The architeaural engineering curriculum is recommended for those wishing to specialize (within the building industry) in engineering design, construction and contracting, or sales engineering. The architeaural engineering student may select any of three areas of specialization offered: construction engineering, environmental engineering, or structural en gineering. Specialization in construction is for students planning a career in contracting and building construction. This program involves courses in construction management, planning and scheduling techniques, cost accounting, estimating and pricing, building materials, and construction methods. Students interested in environmental engineering may concent rate their efforts in the fields of illumination and electrical systems design, hearing-ventilating-air condition ing systems design, sanitation and water supply, or acoustics. The third area of specialization is for those interested in the design of structural systems for buildings. Courses available are struct ural analysis; statically indeterminate structures; and steel, concrete, and timber design. The five-year course leading to a B.S. degree in ar chitectural engineering and a B.S. degree in business offers opportunity to comp lement the architectural engineering background with study in one of the major areas of business administration, such as personnel and business management, marketing, and finance . Approximately one-half of the architectural engineering program is available at UCD under the Department of Civil Engineering. Students wishing to complete the ar chitectural engineering program must apply to the Uni versity of Colorado at Boulder. The complete curriculum and descriptions of courses may be found in the University of Colorado at Boulder Catalog. Curriculum for B.S.

Hubly, Coordinator Admission to this program must be approved by the department at Boulder. Meeting the crisis in oil and energy, cleaning up the water and air, producing new and better materials to replace those that are limited or scarce-these are jobs in which one will find the chemical engineer. Chemical plants (including refineries and gasification plants) convert natural resources into industrial and con sumer products . Among their products are many that often are not identified with chemical engineering-oils, metals, glass, plastic, rubber, paints, soaps and detergents, foods, beverages, synthetic and natural fibers, nuclear and exotic fuels, medicines, and many others . The department, located at the Boulder campus, is very much interested in research directed toward ecologically sound development of chemical processes. It is also working on energy problems and is stressing problems of energy conversion in its instructional program. Many essentials of life originate in chemical engineering. Recycling of wastes and resources is not a new idea in chemical engineering bur a long-standing principle. Since the earth now is perceived as a self-renewing system, intelligent generalization of the recycle theory to the entire cycle of natural resources is a challenge and opportunity for chemical engineers . Cleaning up pollution from chemical plants and from other sources is largely a chemical engineering problem. The che mical engineer efficiently uses and conserves natural resources to create valuable end products and to preserve environmental values. Thus, chemical engineering continually changes and progresses. The Department of Chemical Engineering at the Boulder campus therefore helps students to prepare to be immediately valuable to industry and eventually to lead future developments in industry and research. Whether they plan to go into industry or on to graduate work,

students are urged to watch, understand , and enjoy the spark l e and interplay of new ideas and new technologies. The complete chemical engineering program is not avail ab l e at UCD. However, for new first-year students, approximately one-half of the program is available. Students wishi ng to complete this program should app l y to the University of Colorado at Boulder. Also, students must arrange to take Ch.E. 212 (Chemical Engineering Material and Energy Balances) concurrently in Boulder during the spring semester of their sophomore year or it will delay gra du a tion by a year. The complete curricul u m, degree requirements , and descriptions of courses may be found in the University of Colorado at Boulder Catalog. Students interested in chemical engineering but who are unable to consider full-time, day-time study in Boulder should discuss alternative programs with the coordinator. Curriculum for B.S.

College of Engineering and Applied Scienc e / 6 7 CIVIL ENGINEERING William C. Hughes, Chairman Civil engineering is generally the broadest field of engineering studied in American universities today . Civil engineering offers an interesting and highly challenging career to the student interested in the design and con struction of buildings , bridges, dams , aqueducts, and other structures ; in transportation systems including highways, canals , pipe lines, airports, rapid transit lines, railroads, and harbor facilities; in the transmission of water and control of rivers; in the development of water resources for urban use, industry , and land reclamation; in the regulation of water quality through water purification and proper waste treatment; in the construction industry; and in general in the rapidly expanding problems concerned with mankind's physical environment and the growth of cities. Furthermore, students educated in civil engineering frequently find rewarding employment in other fields: for example, in aerospace structures, electric power generation, city planning, the process industries , industrial engineering, business management and law or medicine (after appro priate education in law or medical school). The breadth of the civil enginee r ing undergraduate program provides an excellent educational background for many fields of endeavor. The curriculum is designed to give the student a broad knowledge of the basic engineering sciences of chemistry, mathematics (including differential equations), physics , mechanics (including fluid mechanics and soil mechanics), electrical circuits, and thermodynamics. In addition, it includes a minimum of 18 semester hours in social humanistic studies. Specialized training is achieved through certain required courses, followed by more advanced civil engineering electives . By proper selection of these electives the senior st u dent who wishes to specialize may emphasize any of the four major areas of civil engineering: structures, water resources, transportation , or geotechnical engineering. To be awarded the B .S. degree , a student must have at least a 2.0 average in all C.E. courses applied to the degree. A five-year program has been arranged for students who wish to pursue a B .S. degree in civil engineering and a B . S . degree in business. A student interested in a premedical option should consult with an adviser and the department chairman at the earliest possible time in order to make proper plans for an acceptable program .

Murray , Chairman The goal of the compute r science program is to educate men and women to rake professional places in the bur geoning compu ter industry at any level accessible to a bachelor ' s degree candidate in computer science. This means that graduates of the C.S. program should be able to: 1. Understand and use a wide variety of problem solving algorithms , and on this basis be able to evaluate software for suitability in solving a wide range of problems, or if necessary, create software for solving the problems . 2. Write computer programs effectively and efficiently in several languages. Each graduate should be sufficiently well trained in some applications area so that the graduate understands the common conventions and basic theory of that discipline , and can communicate effectively with the professionals in that discipline who need programming help. 3. Understand computer hardwar e and software systems. Each graduate should be sufficiently well trained to un derstand hardware at the systems level and be able to make an intelligent choice of hardware needed for various classes of problems. The graduate should also be competent to understand software systems (compilers , operating systems , applications packages, ere.) for the same purpose. 4. Enter any recognized graduate school for further training if the graduate has shown sufficient scholastic performance . The field of study encompasses a new, bur very sub stantial , body of knowledge dealing with the design of computers and computer systems; the application of com puters in data processing, problem solving, and similar kinds of activities; an understanding of computer languages; and the design, writing, and resting of software in various languages to be used in various applications. The computer scientist not only uses the computer for immediate ends , but also is capable of understanding and using the underlying theoretical bases perhaps to create new systems, new designs, and new languages. Included in the field of knowledge are artificial intelligence (how can the computer be programmed to recognize patterns and relationships in and among sets of data?) and automata theory (formal models of computation, formal grammars, and the un derstanding of what things are and are not computable). Nonetheless , programming is a substantial part of most computer scientists' work , and the development of profes sional skill in this activity is one of the most important objectives of the program. Computer Science Curriculum The new curriculum in computer science is planned to give breadth of background in computer science after establishing a solid foundation in mathematics and science. Each student will take electives emphasizing computer-

PAGE 78

related areas. Those who wish to study computers with a heavier emphasis on engineering should consider the electrical engineering program with electives from computer science. To be awarded the B.S. in C.S. a student must have at least a 2.0 average in all C.S. and E.E. courses applied to the degree . To be in good standing in the program (see Policy on Academic Progress in the College of Engineering introductory section of this bulletin) a student must maintain a 2.0 average in all C.S. and E.E. courses attempted.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING William D . Murray, Chairman The professional possibi lities in electrical engineering includ e teaching and research in a university; research and development of new electrical or electronic devices, in struments, or products ; production and quality-control of electrical products for private industry or government; design or operations in the electrical power industry; and sales or management for a private firm or branch of government . The electrical engineering course of study at UCD begins with principles of physics , chemistry, and mathematics and follows with an early, intensive training in the theory and laboratory application of electrical circuits, electro magnetic a nd transmission theory, electrical machines and transformers, and electronics. Throughout the entire course of study, students reinforce their understanding of the theory in well-equipped laboratories. Students are encouraged to develop interests outside of their electrical engineering specialty, thus providing themselves with a well-rounded background and a sense of awareness and responsibility for their later role in society.

PAGE 79

70 / University of Colorado at Denver They are urged to attend meetings of their student professional society, where practicing engineers from many engineering specialties speak of their experiences. The areas of specialization that electrical engineering students may enter upon grad uation are so numerous it is impossible for the undergraduat e training to cover them in detail. Intense specialization may be left to additional training graduates may receive w hen they assume positions with industrial firms, or acquired by specialization through graduate work beyond the bachelor ' s degree. Students who have earned a B average or better in their undergraduate work and who have elected courses in their senior year that strengthen their mathematical background may decide to undertake grad uat e study. The curriculum in electrical engineering is designed to make it possible for the grad uating senior wit h high scholarship to finish a master ' s degree in electrical engineering in about one additional full year of work at any of the nation's major universities. Electrical Engineering Curriculum The new curriculum for eleCtrical engineering is shown below. This program reflects the requirements for those who will receive the B.S. in E.E. on or after May 1987. Students who will graduate after May 1984 and before May 1987 will be permitted to satisfy either the new curriculum or the older curriculum published in the 1983-84 bulletin of the University of Colorado at Denver. Students in this category should note that they must satisfy either curriculum in total, rather than selecting parts from each. To be awarded the B .S. in E.E. a student must have at least a 2 . 0 average in all E.E. and C.S. courses applied toward the degree. To be in good standing in the program (see Policy on Academic Progress in the College of Engineeri n g introductory section of this bulletin), a student must maintain at least a 2.0 grade-point average in all E . E . and C.S. courses attempted. Electrical Engineering and Computer Science The joint degree in electrical engineering and computer science is being replaced by the degree in computer science. Those students who wish to study electrical engineering with a strong computer emphasis can do so by taking computer science courses as professional electives in the electrical engineering program . Business Option Students wishing to complete a B.S. degree in electrical engineering and a B.S. degree in business should not start the business program until their fourth year, with the exception of electing Econ. 201 and 202 for two of their social-humanistic e lectives. Students with a B average may wish to consider obtaining a master ' s degree in business administration. For both of these programs, students should refer to the College of Engineering and Applied Science introductory section of this bulletin. Premedical Option A program has been developed which permits the student to satisfy th e entrance requirements for medical school, such as those of the University of Colorado, while earning a B.S. in eleCtrical engineering. Medical schools typical l y require that applicants have completed two semesters of general chemis try , two semesters of organic chemistry, and two semesters of general biology , all with laboratories. A course in English composition is recommended. More specific information on medical school requirements may be obtained at the office of the Health Careers Adviser at UCD. Curriculum for B.S.

Each student will rake 6 semester hours of Senior Design Laboratories in E.E . specialties. 5 . Professional electives are to be selected from upper division course s in business, computer science, e ngineering , mathematics , or physics . ENGINEERING PHYSICS William R. Simmons, Coordinator Admission to this program must be approved by the department at the Boulder campus. The engineering physics curriculum gives students a thorough foundation in the physical principles underlying most of engineering. The large number of engineering electives which may be incorporated in the curriculum makes it possible for students to prepare themselves for professional work or graduate school in a wide variety of fields. Because the program is particularly flexible, students should be aware that proper preparation for their profes sional field will require careful selection of engineering electives. Students are urged to prepare, in consultation with the departmental coordina tor , a coherent plan of courses to meet their professional objectives. During the freshman and sophomore years, the student must attain a thorough training in mathematics and a grounding in fundamental methods and principles of the physical sciences. During the junior and senior years the work in physics C ollege of Engineering and Applied Science / 71 is amplified to provide a comprehensive knowledge of the various branches of physics such as nuclear physics, atomic physics , electronics, thermodynamics , mechanics, electricity, and magnetism . Individual initiative and resourcefulness are stressed . For purposes of Federal Civil Service re quirements this degree is an engineering degree from an accredited College of Engineering. Students who plan to become registered professional engineers should check the requir ements for registration in their state before choosing their engineering electives . It is recommended that students preparing for Graduate School also prepare for its foreign language requirement as part of their undergraduate curriculum. Applied Physics Option It is also possible to earn the degree Bachelor of Science (Engineering Physics ) with an applied physics option. This option differs from the regular engineering physics degree primarily in that fewer advanced theoretical physics course s are required and in their place a selection of applied science courses is required. This option should not be selected by students intending to pursue graduate study in physics , bur it is appropriate for students intending to pursue graduate work or employment in related fields such as geophysics, environme ntal science, oceanography, nuclear engineering, medicine, and law . Students intending to pursue this option should consult the coordinator by the beginning of their junior year regarding the electives which they wish to propose . The 24 hours of electives in pure or applied natural science must be approved by the engineering physics advising committee, which is located on the Boulder campus. The committee will consider the proposed courses relative to the student's stated educational and j or professional objectives . At least 30 semester hours of credit must be earned after the student's proposed program is approved.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING Ralph C. Koeller, Chairman The mechanical engineering curriculum begins with a strong emphasis on mathematics, physics, and chemistry . It continues with a concentration in engineering sciences such as solid and fluid mechanics; thermodynamics, heat and mass transport; materials; and systems analysis and control. It concludes with laboratory and design courses which demonstrate the ways in which scientific know l edge is applied in the design and development of useful devices and processes. The mechanical engineering program may be roughly subdivided into two-year groupings. In the first two years, the program emphasizes the fundamen tals of those en gineering sciences that are essential for an unders t anding of most branches of professional engineering. In the last two years of the program , the department provides technical electives for professional concentrations in the following areas: Thermodynamics Heat transfer Fluid mechanics Solid mechanics Electromechanical systems Design Power Dynamics and controls Materials science Thermomec h anical systems All of the required courses for mechanical engineeri n g are offered at UCD .

Linda K. Dixon , Acting Dean INFORMATION ABOUT THE SCHOOL The Graduate School is a University-wide body which authorizes programs within i t s constituent colleges and schools. At UCD, Business and Administration (except the MBA Executive program), Education, Engineering, Liberal Arts and Sciences, and Music are colleges or schools whose graduate programs are offered through the Graduate School. In concept, there is a single Graduate School regardless of campus. In practice , most m aste r's-level programs are specific to the campus where the student is admitted, insofar as particular options and advisers are concerned. Doctoral-leve l programs in a discipline are viewed as the responsibility of the entire University community of that discipline . At the present time all Ph.D . programs are coordinated through the corresponding Boulder de partment. However, in a number of disciplines most or all course work for the Ph . D. can be completed at Denver and the research adviser may be a member of the UCD faculty. Some departments in which this is the case are communication and theatre , electrical engineering, and civil engineering. In other disciplines, a significant portion of the course work required for the Ph . D . degree may be taken at UCD . P ersons inte r ested in pursuing doctorallevel work shou l d consult with the appropriate discipline graduate adviser. Anyone wishing further information not given in this bulletin should contaa the D ean of the Graduate School University of Colorado at D enver, 1100 14th Street : Denver , CO 80202.

Fellowship awards are announced about March 15; Colorado Graduate Grant awards are announced each semester for the following semester . GRADUATE STUDENT TEACHIN G APPOINTMENTS Many departments employ g r aduate students as part rime instructors or teaching assistants . The instructorship Graduate School / 7 5 is reserved for those advanced graduate students already possessing an appropriate M.A. degree who may be independently responsible for the conduct of a section or course. Payment for these teaching appointments in 1983-84 was: one-half time instructor, $8,000 for the academic year; one-half time teaching assistant, $6,400 for the academic year. A half-time appointment for an instructor is consider ed to be equal to 6 class contact hours ; a half-time teaching assistant is appointed for 20 hours per week. Compensation is based on the number of appointment hours per week. Nonresident students employed as assistants may or may not be eligible for the nonresident tuition differential stipend for their first-year appointment as an assistant only. Exceptions extending beyond the first year must be approved in a dvance by the respective dean . Teaching assistants and instructors must be enrolled students in good standing for the full period of their appointme nt. RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIPS Research activities provide opportunities for gra duate students to obtain parr-time work as research assistants in many departments. General fund research assistantships are subject to the one-year rule on eligibi lity for waiv er of the nonresident tuition differential . Nonresident students who are appointed as research assistants in nongeneral fund accounts may or may not be eligible for resident tuition races. Assistant s must be enrolled students. LOAN FUNDS Graduate students wishing to apply for long-term loans through the National Direct Stud ent Loan Program and for pare-time jobs through the college work-study program should submit an Application for Financial Aid to the Office of Financial Aid by March 1. This office also provides short-term loan assistance to students who have completed one or more semesters in residence.

Have had adequate preparation to enter upon grad uate study in the field chosen. 4. Have at least a 2. 75 undergraduate grade-point average on all work taken . 5. Meet additional requirements for admission as established by major departments . Regular degree students must maintain at least a 3.0 grade-point average each semester or summer term on ail work taken , whether it is to be applied toward the intended advanced degree or not. Students who fail to maintain this standard of performance will be subject to suspension from the Graduate School. Pass/Fail Grades. In order to permit a meaningful evaluation of an applicant ' s scholastic record, not more than 10 percent of those credit hours that are relevant to the intended field of graduate study shall have been earned with pass jfail grades, nor more than 20 percent overall. Applicants whose academic record contains a larger percentage of passjfail credits must submit suitable ad ditional evi dence that they possess the required scholastic abiliry . If the applicant does not submit satisfactory additional evidence , he or she can be admitted only as a provisional student . PROVISIONAL DEGREE STUDENTS Applicants who do not meet the requirements for admission as regular degree students may be admitted as provisional degree students upon the recommendation of the major department. With the concu rrence of the dean of the Graduate School , a department may admit pro visional students for a probationary term, which may not normally exceed one academic year. At the end of the probationary period , provisional degree students must either be admitted to regular degree status or be dropped from the graduate program . Credit earned by persons in provisional degree status may count toward a degree at this Universiry. Provisional degree students are required to maintain a 3.0 grade-point average or higher , according to the terms of their provisional admission, each semester or summer term o n all work taken , whether or not it is to be applied toward th e advanced degree sought . Students who fail to maintain such a standard of performance , will be subject to suspension from the Graduate School. Note: All provision a l app li cants must take the Graduat e Record Examination and submit scores as part of the application. Application Procedures Graduat e students who expect to study at UCD should contact th e UCD Graduate School office concerning pro cedures for forwarding comp leted applica tions . An applicant for admissio n must present a completed Application Form ( P arts I an d II) , which may be obtained from the UCD Graduate School office, and two official transcripts from each universiry attended. The application must be accompanied by a nonrefundable application fee of $20 (check or money order) when the application is submitted . No application will be processed unless this fee is paid. Man y departments require scores from the Graduate Record Examination, and most departments require three or four letters of recommendation . When a prospective degree student applies for admission, the chairman of each department or a committee named for rhe purpose shall decide whether the applicant shall be admitted and shall make that decision known to the Office of Admissions and Records , which will inform the student . Persons not wishing to work toward an advanced degree are referred to as special students (below) . A completed application must be in the office of the major department at least 60 days prior to the term for which admission is sought or earlier as may be required by the major department . Students who wish to apply for a graduate student award for the academic year 1984-85, e.g., fellowship, scholarship , assistantship, ere., must file a completed application with the department before the announced departmental deadline (see previous section on financial aid) .

Withdrawal A graduate student who desires to withdraw from the Universiry must apply to the dean of the Graduate School for permission to withdraw in good stancling . A student who discontinues attendance in a course without official withdrawal will be marked as having failed the course . Master's Thesis or Report Graduate students working toward master's degrees , if the y expect to present a thesis or M.Ed . report in parcial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree, must register for thesis for a minimum of 4 semester hours or a maximum of 6 semester hours, or for M.Ed. report for 2 semester hours . The student may register for any specific number of hours in any semester of residence, but the total number of hours for all semesters must equal the number of credits the student expects to receive for the thesis or report. The final grade will be withheld until the thesis or report is completed. If the thesis or report is not completed at the end of the term in which the student is so registered, an in progress (IP) will be reported. (The student may not register again for any portion of thesis credit on whic h an /P grade has been submitted.) Limitation of Registration FULL LOAD A graduate student will be considered to be carrying a full load during a regular semester for purposes of determining residence credit if the student is registered for nor fewer than 5 semester hours in work numbered 500 or above, or at least 8 semester hours in a combination of undergraduare j graduate j professional courses work acceptable for graduate credit , or any number of thesis hours. A maximum of two-thirds of a semester of resident credit may be earned during the summer if a student registers for three semester hours of work in courses numbered 500 or above, 5 semester hours of other graduate work, or any number of thesis hours . For the number of hours required for financial aid see Financial Aid at the Universiry of Colorado at Denver in th e General Informacion section of this bulletin . A graduate student may contact the resident dean's office for informacion on the appeal process regarding the full load requirement for financial aid purposes. MAXIMUM LOAD No graduate student may receive graduate creclit toward a degree for more than 15 hours in a regular semester. The maximum number of graduate credits that may be applied toward a degree during a summer term at UCD is 10 hours per 10-week summer term. TUITION AND FEES The schedule of tuition and fees is given in the General Information section of this bulletin. REQUIREMENTS FOR ADVANCED DEGREES Quality of Graduate Work Although the work for advanced degrees is specified partly in terms of creclit hours , an advanced degree will not be conferred merely for the completion of a specified period of residence and the passing of a given number of courses. Students should not expea to get from formal courses all the training , knowledge , and g rasp of ideas necessary to meet the requirements for an advanced degree. They should work on their own initiative, reading widely and thoughtfully , reaching their own conclusions, and acquiring a sense of values, perspective, and proportion. All stuclies offered for credit toward an advanced degree (except those in deficiencies) must be of graduate status . A student is expected to maintain at l east a B average in all work attempted while enrolled in the Graduate School. For the Ph . D., a course mark below B is unsatisfactory and will not be counted toward fulfilling the minimum requirements for the degree. A student who fails to do satisfactory work will be subjea to suspension from the Graduate School by the dean with the approval of the major department . Appeal may be made to the Executive Committee of the Graduate School. The committee's decision shall be final. A suspended student is eligible to apply for read mission after one year. Approval or rejection of this application rests jointly with the student's major department and the dean. In case of lack of agreement between the department and the dean or in case of appeal by the student, the final decision will be made by the Executive Committee. Grading System The standing of a student in work intended for an advanced degree is to be indicated by the marks A, B , and C. A-Superior , 4 credit points for each credit hour. B Good, 3 credit points for each credit hour . CFair, 2 credit points for each credit hour. Work receiving the lowest passing grade , D , may not be counted toward a degree, nor may it be accepted for the removal of deficiencies. Marks below B are not accepted for the doctoral degree . An IF or an IW grade may be given for incomplete work at the discretion of the instructor . For details , refer to the discussion of the uniform grading system. The grade of IP (in progress) will be given for contin uing thesis work and will be valid until the thesis is comp leted. Graduate students may register for undergraduate courses on a pass jfail basis; however , graduate credit will not be awarded, and such courses cannot be app lied toward a graduate degree . Repeating a Course A graduate student who receives a grade of C, D , or F in a course may repeat that course once, upon written recommendation to the resident dean by the chairman of

PAGE 88

the student ' s advisory committee and major department, provided the course has not previously been applied toward a degree. In calculating a srudent's grade-point average for Grad uate School purposes, the grade for a repeated course will substitute for the old grade. Grades earned in courses taken as an undergraduate or as a special srudent, as well as grades earned in first and second year foreign l anguage courses, will not be used in calculating the Graduate School grade-point average . However, all grades received will appear on the srudent ' s transcript. Change o f Department or Majo r A graduate srudent wishing to change department or major must submit a new Part I and Part II of the graduate app lication co the new department or school and request th e former department co forward recommendations and credentials. Use of E nglish A student who is noticeably deficient in the use and spelling of the English language may not obtain an advanced degree from th e Universiry of Colorado . The sat isfaction of this requirement depends not so much upon the abiliry ro pass formal tests, although these may be demanded, as it does upon the habitual use of good English in all o r a l and written work. Abiliry co use the language with precision and distincti on should be cultivated as an at tainment of major importance . Each department will judge the qualifications of its advanced students in the use of English . Reports , ex aminations , and speech will be considered in estimating the candidate's proficiency . MASTER ' S DEGREE A student regularly admitted co the Graduate School and later accepted as a candidate for the degree Maste r of Arts , Master of Science, or other master's degree will be recommended for the degree only after the following requirements have been met. In general , only graduates of an approved instirution w h o have a thorough preparation for their proposed field of study and who do graduate work of high qualiry are ab l e co attain the degree with the minimum amount of work specified be low. All srudies offered toward the m i n i mum requirement for the degree must be of graduate rank . Necessary additional work required co make up deficiencies or prerequisites may be partly or entirely undergraduate courses. The requirements stated below are mm1mum require ments ; additional conditions set by the department will be found in the announcements of separate departments . Any department ma y make further regulations not in consistent with the general rules. Minimum Requirem ent The minimum requirement of graduate wor k for the degree Master of Arts or Master of Science may be fulfilled by following either Plan I or Plan II below. Graduate School / 79 P lan I: B y p r esenting 24 semester hours of gradua t e work, including a thesis . At least 12 semester hours of t his work must be at the 500 level or above. P lan II: B y presenting 30 semester hours of gradua t e wor k, without a thesis . At least 16 semester hours of this work must be at the 500 level or above. P lan II does not represent a free optio n for the srudent. A candidate for the master ' s degree may be allowed co select Plan II only on the recommendation of the departmen t con cerned . Graduate Credit Graduate credit is given for courses which are listed a t the 500 level or above and which are offered by t hose colleges or schoo l s that are members of the Graduate Schoo l , or which have otherwise been approved by the d ean of the Graduate School. No assurance can be give n that work taken by a srudent will count coward a hig h e r deg ree un less the student has the appro val of the de partment. Not al l courses listed are available at any one time; some of them are given in altern ate years. Courses t aken during the fall semester 1975 a nd thereafter will have graduate rank if they are taught by members of the Graduate School faculry and are in one of the following two categories: 1 . Courses within the major department at the 500 level or above. 2 . Courses outside the major department at any level, provided they are approved for graduate rank for a specific degree plan by the faculry of the degree-granting program. This does not change the minimum number of cou rses that must be taken at the 500 level or above. Howeve r , as a result, most students who include 400-level courses of other departments in their program will not exceed those minimum requirements for graduation. Field of Study Studies leading to a master's degree may be divide d between major and minor subjects at the discretion of the faculry of the degree-granting program . Status After students have made a satisfactory record in this University for at least one semester or summer term an d after they have removed any deficiencies that were de t er mined at the time of admission or by qualifying exam inations or otherwise , they should confer with their major department and request that a decision be made on thei r s t arus . This definite starus must be set by the majo r departmen t before students may make application for admission co candidacy for an advanced degree. Srudents who are inadequately prepared must make up without credit toward a graduate degree all prerequisites required by the department concerned . Language Requirement s Candidates must have such knowl edge of ancient a nd modern languages as each department requires. See special departmental requirements .

80 / Universit y of Colorado at Denver Credit by Transfer Resident graduate work of high quality done in a recognized graduate school elsewhere and coming within the time limit may be accepted up to a limited amount, provided it is recommended by the department concerned and approved by the dean of the Graduate School. All work accepted by transfer must come within the 5-year time limit or be validated by special examination. The maximum amount of work that may be transferred to this University is 8 semester hours . Credit will not be transferred until the student has established in the Graduate School of this University a satisfactory record of at least one semester in residence; such transfer will not reduce the residence requirement at this University, but it may reduce the amount of work to be done in formal courses. Requests for transfer of credit to be applied toward an advanced degree must be made on the form specified for this purpose and submitted to the Graduate School by the beginning of the semester prior to that in which the student will be graduated. Work already applied toward a master ' s degree received from another institution cannot be accepted for transfer toward . the master's degree at the University of Colorado; extension work completed at another institution cannot be transferred; and correspondence work , except to make up deficiencies , is not recognized. Excess undergraduate credits from another institution may not be transferred to the Graduate School. Seniors in this University may , however, transfer a limited amount of advanced resident work (up to 8 semester hours) provided such work: 1 . Is completed with distinction in the senior year at this University . 2. Comes within the five-year time limit. 3. Has not been applied toward another degree. 4. Is recommended for transfer by the department concerned and is approved by the dean of the Graduate School. Requests for transfer of credit to be applied toward an advanced degree must be made on the form specified for this purpose and submitted to the Graduate School by the beginning of the semester prior to that in which the student will be graduated. For more information contact the Graduate School office. Residence In general, the residence requirements can be met only by residence at this University for at least two semesters or at least three summer terms. For full residence a student must be registered within the time designated at the beginning of a semester and must carey the equivalent of not fewer than 5 semester hours of work in courses numbered 500 or above , or at least a combination of other course work acceptable for graduate credit . See Limitation of Registration, Full Load, for requirements for full residence credit during the summer. A student who is noticeably deficient in hisjher general training, or in the specific preparation indicated by each department as prerequisite to graduate work, cannot expect to obtain a degree in the minimum time specified. Assistants and other employees of the University may fulfill the residence requirements of one year in two semesters, provided their duties do not require more than half time. Full-time employees may not satisfy the residence requirements of one year in fewer than four semesters . Admission to Candidacy A student who wishes to become a candidate for a master's degree must file application in the dean ' s office not later than 10 weeks prior to the completion of the comprehensive final examination. The number of hours to be presented for the degree must be determined before this application may be filed. See previous section on Status . This application must be made on forms obtainable at the dean ' s office and in various departments and must be signed by the major department, certifying that the student's work is satisfactory and that the program outlined in the application meets the requirements set for the student. A student on Graduate School probation is not eligible to be awarded a degree until he or she is removed from probation. Thesis Requirements A thesis, which may be of a research, expository, critical, or creative type, is required of every master ' s degree candidate under Plan I. Every thesis presented in partial fulfillment of the requirements for an advanced degree must: 1. Deal with a definite topic related to the major field. 2 . Be based upon independent study and investigation. 3 . Represent the equivalent of from 4 to 6 semester hours of work. 4. Receive the approval of the major department not later than 30 days (in some departments, 90 days) before the commencement at which the d!.lgree is to be conferred. 5. Be essentially complete at the time the comprehensive final examination is given. 6. Comply in mechanical features with specifications obtainable from the Graduate School. Two weeks prior to the date on which the degree is to be conferred, two formally approved, printed or type written copies of the thesis must be filed in the Graduate School. The thesis must be complete with abstract. All theses must be signed by the thesis adviser and the second reader. All approved theses are kept on file in the library . The thesis binding fee must be paid at the Finance Office on the Denver campus when the thesis is deposited in the Graduate School. Credit hours earned for the thesis will not be accepted toward the requirements for a degree unless such credit has previously been registered. A student working toward a master ' s degree must register for thesis for a specific number of hours. The student may register for any specific number of hours in any semester of residence, but the total registered credit for thesis must total a minimum of 4 or a maximum of 6 semes ter hours, the total number of hours depending upon how much credit is to be given for the thesis. The final grade will be withheld until the thesis or report is completed. An IP (in progress) will be reported

PAGE 90

for terms during which the student is registered for thesis prior to completion of the thesis. Final Examinations Each candidate for a master ' s degree is required to take a comprehensive final examination after the other require ments for the degree have been completed . This examination may be given near the end of the candidate ' s last sem ester of residence while he j she is still taking required courses for the degree, provided hejshe is making satisfactory progress in those courses . The following rules applying to the comp rehensive final examination must be observed: 1. A student must be registered when he or she takes the examination. 2. Notice of the examination must be filed by the major department in the dean's office at least three days in advance of the examination . 3. The examination is to be given by a committee of three graduate faculry members appointed by the de partment concerned in consultation with the dean. 4 . The examination , which may be oral or written , or both, must cover the thesis, which should be essentially comp lete at the time, as well as other work done in the Universiry in formal courses and seminars in the major field. 5. An examination in the minor work taken at this Universiry is optional with the major and minor depatt ments. 6. The examination must include all work presented for the degree not done in residence at the Universiry of Colorado , whether in the major or minor field. The examination on transferred work will be given by rep resentatives of the corresponding fields of study in this University. 7. A student who fails the comprehensive final ex amination may not attempt the examination again until at least three months have elapsed and until such work as may be prescribed by the examining committee has been completed . The Jtudent may retake the examination only once. Master's Thesis or Report Credit Every graduate student working toward a master's degree who expecrs to present a thesis or M.Ed. report in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree must r egister for thesis for a minimum of 4 semester hours or a maximum of 6 semester hours, or for M . Ed. report for 2 semester hours. The student may register for any specific number of hours in any semester of residence, but the tota l number of hours for all semesters must equal the number of credits the student expects to receive for the thesis or report . The final grade will be withheld until the thesis or report is comple ted. If the thesis or report is not completed at the end of the term in which the student is so registered, an in progreJJ ( IP ) will be reported. (The student may not register again for any portion of thesis credit on which an IP grade has been submirted.) Supplemental Examinations Supplemental examinations should be simply an ex-Graduate School / 81 tensi on of the original examination and given immediately. If the student fails the supplemental examination, three months must elapse before he or she may attempt the comprehensive examination again. Course Examinations The regular wrirten examinations of each semester except the last must be taken. Course exami nations of the last semester , which come after the comprehe nsive final ex amination has been passed, may be omitted with th e consent of the instruCtor. Time Limit All work, including the comprehensive final examination, should be completed within five years or six successive summers. Work done earlier will not be accepted for the de gree unless va lidated by a special examination. Candidates for the master's degree are expeCted to complete their work with reasonabl e continuity.

Graduate Programs ACCOUNTING R efer to the Gradua te School of Business Administration section of this bulletin . ANTHROPOLOGY The master's program in anthropology offers gene ral , flexible training in anthropology along with topical spe cialization and the opportunity to specialize in interdis ciplinary , applied areas: medical anthropology and com munity and urban anthropology. The medical anthropology track is intended to serve students preparing for careers and those with established careers in the health care

PAGE 91

82 / University of Colorado at Denver professions and related fields. Similarly, the community and urban anthropology track is intended to serve those who seek to employ anthropological concepts and methods of community analysis in public administration, devel opment, planning, and allied fields. Working with an advisory committee, each student will tailor an individual program of studies around courses and seminars in an thropology and allied disciplines. These programs will culminate in either a master ' s paper-Plan II, or master ' s thesisPlan I. A primary goal of the program is to produce graduates who are capable of understanding and proficient at resolving, in cooperation with others , the many problems of complex societies; consequently, a premium will be placed on interdisciplinary instruction and practical exercises in the design and implementation of research in a variety of settings . More detailed descriptions of the options available within the M.A. program may be obtained by writing to the Director of Graduate Studies in Anthropology, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th St., Denver , CO 80202 . Requirements for Admission Admission tO the master ' s program in anthropology is open tO any holder of a baccalaureate degree, not necessarily in anthropology , provided he or she meets the following requirements : ( 1) general requirements for admission tO the Graduate School (2. 7 5 or better grade-point average for all undergraduate studies); and (2) knowledge of the fundamentals of anthropology. Applicants will be expected to have had a general introductOry course in anthropology and secondary courses in ethnology, archaeology, linguistics, and physical anthropology or be able to demonstrate a mastery of materials equivalent to that which might reasonably be expected ro result from such formal training. Applicants deficient in background may be admitted on a conditional basis and will be required to make up deficiencies without graduate credit during the first year in residence . A simpler alternative, when practical, would be tO remove deficiencies as a special student prior to applying for admission to the graduate program. In order tO be considered for admission into the master's program , an applicant must submit (1) two copies of transcripts from all undergraduate institutions attended; (2) Graduate Record Examination scores for verbal and quantitative aptitude; and (3) at least three letters of recommendation. Evidence of previous nonacademic an thropology-oriented work or other experience will be carefully considered, as will that of special skills relevant to anthropological research. Departmental deadlines for receipt of applications for admission to the Graduate School , including accompanying materials , is April 15 for fall entrance , October 15 for spring entrance. Further information concerning specialization within the program, departmental admission and advising policies, etc. , may be obtained by writing the DirectOr of Graduate Studies in Anthropology , University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver , CO 80202 . For general Grad uate School requirements and application information, see beginning of graduate section of this bulletin. Residence Requirement A minimum of two full semesters devoted to advanced study is required by the Graduate School. Students working toward the master's degree in anthropology will be strongly encouraged tO attain that degree within three years following matriculation into the program. Course Hours and Distribution A minimum of 30 semester hours of credit is required for the M.A. degree in anthropology . All course work in anthropology must be at the 500 level or above. Course work is to be distributed as follows for students pursuing an interdisciplinary specialty within the general anthro pology track, the medical anthropology track, or the community and urban anthropology track: Courses in anthropology .......... 15 semester hours minimum Courses in related fields . . . . . . . . . . 9 semester hours minimum For students pursuing a subdisciplinary specialty within the general anthropology track, course work is to be distributed as follows : Courses in anthropology .......... 15 semester hours minimum Courses in related fields . . . . . . . . . . 9 semester hours minimum The remaining 6 semester hours may be met either by (Plan I) writing a master ' s thesis, for which 6 hours credit is given, or by (Plan II) taking 6 additional hours of course work and writing a master's paper on an agreed upon course work topic. Thesis or Paper The student must either carry out an original research projea and report the results in a thesis of professional quality or write a master ' s paper, more limited in scope, to complete the degree . A thesis provides a valuable opportunity to initiate or pursue important, individual research objectives . The master's paper is intended as a flexible alternative for students who wish to pursue in depth some issue or specialty topic without engaging in the sustained research effort on which a master's thesis depends . APPLIED MATHEMATICS See Mathematics Program. BASIC SCIENCE, MASTER OF Collin Hightower, CoordinatOr for UCD The program leadin g tO the Master of Basic Science (M.B .S.) degree is interdisciplinary. It provides an op portunity for present and prospective mathematics and science professionals and others to extend and / or broaden their training in computer science, mathematics, museology, and the natural and physical sciences at advanced under graduate and graduate levels. These professionals include public school teachers , industrial scientists, engineers, business persons, and others. The student may elect the

PAGE 92

mathematics , science, or museology options as described below .

The M . A . in biology may be obtained with an emphasis in ecology, genetics, plant science, and organismic biology (including anatomy, physiology , and development) . Two principles have guided the development of the graduate program in biology. These are (1) the belief that a student's program should be tailored ro meet the student ' s specific needs or personal goals and (2) the utilization of all the University ' s resource facilities, regardless of the campus on which they are located , in order ro provide greater opportunity and exposure for the student . Requirements for Admission Applicants must hold a bacca l aureate degree from an accredited college or university earned with an overall grade-point average of 3.0 or better . (Exceptions ro this grade-point average are made , dependent upon the letters of recommendation made on the student's behalf.) Most applicants have an undergraduate major in biology or its equivalent. Students who do not meet the minimum requirements set by the department or the Graduate School may be admitted on a provisional basis as detailed in the Graduate School general information section in this bulletin . The general portion of the GRE is required; the advanced biology test is recommended but not required. Applications are submitted directly ro the biology graduate coordinator at UCD. Degree Requirements All course work taken within the department and applied toward the degree must be 500 level or above. With the adviser ' s andjor grad u ate committee's approval course work at the 400 level taken outside the department may be applied toward the degree . Two types of degree plans are offered: Plan I (with thesis) requires 24 semester hours including 4-6 hours of thesis; at least 12 of the rota! semester hours must be 500 level or above. Plan II (without thesis) requires 30 semester hours of which 16 hours must be 500 level or above. There is no core of required courses structured into the master's degree program; however, one seminar ( 1 or 2 hours credit) is required. A course plan is developed by the student and major professor and approved by the student's graduate committee . Additional Information The student is referred to the biology graduate coor dinator (629-3419) and to the Department of Biology ' s Master of Arts in Biology brochure which is available in the Graduate School office. Specific questions relating ro the student's background and specific program needs should be directed ro the biolog y graduate coordinatOr.

ENGINEERING, MASTER OF The Master of Engineering degree program is admin istered by the Graduate Schoo l through the departments of engineering . The requirements for admission and for quality and quantity of academic work are essentially the same as for the Master of Science degree awarded in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. The principal difference between the Master of Engi neering degree and the Master of Science degree is that the Master of Engineering is intended especially to meet the needs of those practicing engineers who wish to follow an inregrated , interdisciplinary program of studies in en gineering or in engineering and allied sub jects related to the individual student's professional work. Examples of such interdisciplinary programs include engineering and social sciences, engineering and biological sciences, engi neering and behavioral sciences, engineering and public administration, engineering and l aw , and engineering and business administration. The degree will be especially valuable for continuing education programs for engineers in industry. It will provide a framework for such persons to work toward significant goals fitted to their particular interests. The program can include courses which are made available on video tape or on live television . The Master of Engineering degree is not intended as a means to permit a random, unguided selection of courses . Each prospective student is required to present a well defined objective in order to be admitted to the program. In consultation with the faculty advisers, an academic program is developed to meet this objective . The admission of students to graduate study, the approval of their degree programs, admission to candidacy for the degree, and the approval of the awarding of a degree are to originate through a specific department of the College of Engineering and Applied Science, in the same manner as for the established Master of Science program. An advisory committee, including not fewer than three facu lty members , will be appointed for each student by his or her department . The membership of each advisory com mittee shall be chosen from the various interdisciplinary academic areas represented in th e student's program and will be from more than one department. The advisory committee guides the student, and is responsible for approving the individual's degree program and admission to candidacy; and approves the student's written report and the awarding of the degree . Degree Requirements The requirements for the degree are 30 credit hours plus a written report on a creative investigation which may be related to the student's professio nal work. The report will be of the same gen eral quality as that required for the thesis for the Master of Science degree and must be defended orally , but does not in itse lf carry credi t nor require registration. It may be based upon work done for credit und er independent study . At least 15 credit hours must be in e ngin eering at the 500 level or above. As many as 15 credit hours may be taken outside of engi neering. Credit in courses below the 400 level will not apply toward degree requirements . Additional information about the degree may be obtained from the College of Engineering and Appl ied Science departmental offices. ENGLISH Students admitted to graduate study in English may comp l ete all or substantially all of their course requirements for either the M .A. or Ph.D. at UCD. Requirements for Admission Admission requirements for graduate study in English include satisfactory scores on verbal and advanced (liter ature) parts of the Graduate Record Examination, plus at least 24 semester hours in English (exclusive of com position, creative writing and speech, and liter ature courses counting as credits in education) . At least 16 semester hours must be in upper division work. Degree Requirements Students wishing to pursue graduate work in English should note Requirements for Advanced Degrees in this bulletin. They also should obtain a copy of the brochure, Graduate Study in English , issued by the English de partment and should consult the adviser for graduate English studies at UCD. All students planning to take any graduate English examination must state their intentions to the grad uate adviser for English studies at UCD at l east ten weeks prior to the date of the examination. The graduate courses in English are also applicable to the Master of Humanities program at UCD. For more information contact the graduate adviser at 629-8304. ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE The environmental science degree is designed to provide students with trainin g in eng in eering, natural/physical sciences, and socioeconomic analysis. The goals of the program are to: (1) enhance the interdisciplinary com munication and analytical skills of the studenr, and (2) provide opportunities for more intensive training within

Applicants with little or no training in geography may be required to take additional course work in areas deemed necessary for completing graduate work. The GRE verbal and quantitative examinations, or their equivalent for foreign students , are required of all applicants. Degree Requirements Two types of degree programs are available. Plan I requires a minimum of 18 credit hours of course work and 6 credit hours of thesis research and presentation work . Plan II requires a minimum of 30 credit hours of course work, including 4 to 6 independent student credit hours involving completion of a project or paper of publishable quality. All incoming graduate students must complete three graduate seminars with three different departmental faculty within the first semester (or first year for part rime students). At least one of the three courses must be in physical geography and one in human geography. The performance in these courses will be used by a faculty commitree to (1) determine the general fitness of the student to continue toward the M.A. degree and (2) identify any academic deficiencies the student may have. For further information call the geography department, 629-34 56 or 629-2590. GEOLOGICAL SCIENCES It is possible to do a significant proportion of the work required for an M.S. degree on the Denve r campus, but prospective graduate students must be p r epared to ta k e approximately one-third to one-half of their course work on the Boulder campus at this time. A formal propo sal for a complete M.S. degree program for the D enver campus is being prepared. UCD offers its program entire l y in the evening, with the exception of field geology and a very few nontechnical electives . More information about opportunities for D enver stu dents is availab l e in the UCD geology department, 629-3456 .
