THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT DENVER: AN URBAN UNIVERSITY CAMPUS
The University of Colorado at Denver (CU-Denver) is one of four campuses of the University of Colorado. The urban, nonresi-dential 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. CU-Denver 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 CU-Denver Administration Building is located at 1100 Fourteenth Street, although several of the administrative offices are located at 1250 14th Street, one block north. CU-Denver shares library, laboratory, classroom, and recreation facilities with the Community College of Denver and Metropolitan State College on the Auraria Higher Education Center campus.
A new building for CU-Denver, located on the Auraria campus, is planned for completion in 1988.
Academic Programs
CU-Denver 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 CU-Denver can earn undergraduate degrees in some 45 fields and graduate degrees in some 57 fields. The colleges and schools 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
The Graduate School
Graduate School of Public Affairs
CU-Denver has kept pace with demand for education which leads to improved professional opportunity in the Information Age. Many programs emphasize practical business world applications, and all CU-Denver students are given the opportunity to attain computer literacy. Specific computer-oriented academic programs are offered in the Computer Science (Engineering),
Applied Mathematics (Liberal Arts and Sciences), and Information Systems (Business) programs.
The undergraduate colleges admit freshman and transfer students 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 pre-professional 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 CU-Denver 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 CU-Denver, 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 CU-Denver’s student body. The diversity of backgrounds, interests, occupations, and ages stimulates a unique learning experience for the men and women enrolled at CU-Denver. Students range in age from 16 to 70. Approximately two-thirds of the students hold full-time jobs and 70 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
As one of four campuses of the University of Colorado, CU-Denver has a special role and mission in Colorado higher education. The University was founded in Boulder in 1876, and the


8 / University of Colorado at Denver
University of Colorado at Boulder now serves about 22,000 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. CU-Denver’s 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.
CU-Denver 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 at CU-Denver will indicate that the degree was conferred at Denver.
Faculty and Accreditation
More than 280 highly qualified faculty members teach full time at CU-Denver; 83 percent have doctoral degrees. The faculty is alert to the challenges of the urban environment and responsive to the needs of the commuter student. CU-Denver 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 The College of Design and Planning is recognized by the American Planning Association

MEMBERSHIP
Association of Urban Universities American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture and Collegiate Schools of Planning
Council of University Institutes for Urban Affairs American Association of Colleges 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 Community College of Denver. 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. The Tivoli has been newly renovated into a complex containing specialty shops, restaurants, and entertainment.
Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity/Title IX
CU-Denver follows a policy of equal opportunity in education and in employment. In pursuance of this policy, no Denver campus 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 non-discriminatory basis subject to the provisions of the Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Vietnam-Era Veterans Readjustment Act of 1974, and Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967.
A CU-Denver Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity program has been established to implement this policy. For information about these provisions on equity, discrimination, or fairness contact the Director of Affirmative Action, 1250 14th St., Suite 700, 556-2509.
Research and Public Service
Research projects and activities, public service, and academic programs at CU-Denver are oriented toward the needs of the urban population and environment, and to concerns and issues of importance to Colorado and the nation. Activities in research and public service encompass both traditional and nontraditional fields of study, and focus on issues that relate to the city, state, and nation, as well as international needs.
During 1984-85, CU-Denver faculty and staff received awards totaling $2,001,079, for research and public service programs. A good portion of these dollars, from public and private sources, support research and public service work which is of direct benefit to the State of Colorado. Such activities have brought CU-Denver 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 and micro computer engineering programs, master’s and executive master’s in health administration, environmental sciences, rural outreach for early childhood special education, volcanic geology of Marie Byrd Land, Antarctica, dinosaur habitats and biology, mathematical sciences, public affairs management research, survey of the Cuban shorefish fauna, community leadership programs, and community development, planning, and design.
In the College of Business, health administration faculty are actively serving on the boards of many health care providers in the community and providing management expertise to government agencies. They are also involved in a new and innovative external degree program designed for persons with managerial experience in health care organizations. The Executive Program in Health


General Information / 9
Administration combines research and development of “High Tech” educational delivery systems with a coordinated and integrated curriculum in health administration. The program employs innovation in the technology of educational delivery. The curriculum aligns new educational strategies and modalities with its learning objectives and content, and offers a wide range of learning methods.
The Center for Community Development and Design continues to be a major public service outreach resource for CU-Denver. The Center provides expertise in the areas of design, planning, and community development, as well as public service, applied research, and educational and technical assistance to local governments and community organizations in Denver and throughout Colorado. Projects which have been undertaken include technical assistance to merchants’ associations and small businesses in Denver’s older neighborhoods, mainstreet redevelopment, design communication processes for the visually impaired, Denver’s energy demonstration program, growth impact studies, economic development strategies, and recreational plans. 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 CU-Denver’s academic programs in the College of Design and Planning are enriched by the practical involvement of students in these projects.
The faculty in the School of Education are continuing to work on local, state, and national education related projects. Funded grants for 1985-86 in the School of Education total $1,198,260 over a three year period. Projects include the development of a model reading and writing program in the Denver Public Schools; a state wide outreach program to bring special education resources, skills, and expertise to assist early childhood teachers of handicapped children; and the development of a national high school curriculum relating to the effect of technology on individuals and society, funded by the National Science Foundation.
Engineering faculty are looking at soil behavior as it relates to earthquakes, dams, waterways, winds, and oceanic activity. They are also contributing to design and safety plans in mine structures for oil shale processing, construction techniques which would lengthen the life and servicability of highways, highway drainage, sporangiophore growth of phycomyces, numerical solutions to partial differential equations, and neuromagnetism.
Natural and physical sciences faculty are investigating the gas phase and related studies of organosilicon compounds, lead effects on the nervous system, a cellular analysis, neural mechanisms of behavioral plasticity, volcanic geology of Marie Byrd Land and its relationships to glacial and tectonic history in west Antarctica, and the paleoecological investigation of the Mintum Formation, Colorado, which involves the study of old marine sediments and their contained marine fossils. The objective is to complete the reconstruction of certain marine habitats and to document deposits showing the transition from the marine environment to land and to establish a picture of zonation in ancient habitats.
A particularly strong computational mathematics group has made CU-Denver a regional center for computational mathematics with a national and international reputation. Mathematics clinics investigate contemporary societal issues through the application of mathematical concepts to specific problems. Other research includes the development of fast algorithms for the
numerical solution of partial differential equations on super computers, the analysis and development of combinatorial algorithms used in scheduling artificial intelligence, and the applications of discrete mathematics to problems in ecology, engineering, and computer science.
The Center for Environmental Sciences has a variety of research projects underway. They include the acidification status of Colorado lakes and in analyzing the data the Environmental Protection Agency has provided, data analysis on 1,800 lakes east of the Mississippi, development of quality control protocol for application in pattern recognition in simplifying the task of environmental analysis, nutrient composition data, and projects in oil shale. The work greatly influences national as well as regional issues and is conducted in close cooperation with other institutions of higher education, industry, and various public interest groups.
The Center for the Improvement of Public Management and the Center for Public-Private Sector Cooperation were established by the Graduate School of Public Affairs to provide a variety of community outreach services. The Center for the Improvement of Public Management conducts management training and career development programs for elected and appointed public officials at all levels of government. The Center for Public-Private Sector Cooperation encourages and publicizes joint problem-solving efforts between the public and private sectors. Both centers provide technical assistance to state agencies and localities and both engage in applied research.

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) probability of success in 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 CU-Denver Office of Admissions and Records.
2. The application form must be completed and returned to the Office of Admissions and Records with the required $20’ nonre-fundable application fee.
3. The student is required to have two official1 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.)
Liberal arts and music applicants with fewer than 12 semester hours (18 quarter hours) of college work completed also must submit a high school transcript and ACT or SAT test scores. ALL engineering applicants with fewer than 24 semester hours also must submit high school transcripts and ACT/SAT scores.
Business applicants with fewer than 45 semesters hours also must submit high school transcripts and ACT/SAT scores.

For further information, students should contact the College Advising Office, 556-2555.
All credentials presented for admission become the property of the University of Colorado and must remain on file.
Transfer of College-Level Credit
After all official transcripts have been received and the applicant has been admitted as a degree student, 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 CU-Denver. In general, transfer credit will be accepted insofar as it meets the degree, grade, and residence requirements at CU-Denver.
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. A maximum of 60 semester hours (90 quarter hours) of work from a two-year institution may be applied toward baccalaureate degree requirements. All correspondence courses are evaluated to determine their acceptability, and business courses 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 on the basis of excellent work done at CU-Denver and 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
CU-Denver students who have not registered and attended classes at CU-Denver 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.
Former students who have attended another college or university since last attending the University of Colorado must apply as transfer students and meet the transfer student Receipt of Documents deadlines. This requires payment of the $202 application fee and submission of official transcripts from all colleges and universities previously attended. Transcripts should be sent to CU-Denver, Admissions Processing, P.O. Box 1469, Denver, CO 80201-1469.

Credit for courses taken may subsequently be applied toward a University degree program. For more information and application instructions, contact the CU-Denver Office of Admissions and Records (303-556-2660).
ADMISSION OF NON-DEGREE STUDENTS'
Persons who want to take University courses but do not plan to work toward a University of Colorado degree may be admitted as non-degree students.1 In general, correspondence and questions regarding admission as a non-degree student should be directed to the Office of Admissions and Records. Those seeking admission as non-degree students for the purpose of teacher certification should contact the School of Education, 556-2717.
Undergraduate
CU-Denver will enroll persons without an undergraduate degree as non-degree students', but applicants are encouraged to apply to an undergraduate program rather than to apply as a nondegree student. Courses taken as a non-degree student are for credit and can be used for transfer to other institutions or for professional improvement. Non-degree students must maintain a grade-point average of 2.0 at CU-Denver.
Note: International students are not admitted as non-degree students, except for summer terms.
Graduate
Students with baccalaureate degrees who are not accepted to specific degree programs may enroll for course work as nondegree students. There are several types of these students. Among them are teachers who seek renewal of certification; students who have attained the degree or credential status they want, but who wish to take additional course work for professional or personal improvement; and students who feel a need to make up deficiencies before entering a specific program.
Non-degree students should be aware that generally only a limited number of course credits taken by a non-degree student may be applied toward a degree program at CU-Denver.
To permit continuing registration as a non-degree student, a minimum grade-point average of 2.0 must be maintained.
Note: International students are not admitted as non-degree students, except for summer terms.
HOW TO APPLY FOR NON-DEGREE STUDENT ADMISSION
To apply for admission as a non-degree student, obtain a Nondegree 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 must apply separately to the School of Education and submit the required credentials. Non-degree students are advised that registration for courses is on a space available basis.
CHANGING STATUS FROM NON-DEGREE TO DEGREE STUDENT
Non-degree students may apply for admission to an undergraduate degree program by following the instructions outlined in the Non-degree 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. Non-degree students who are accepted as undergraduate degree students may generally transfer a limited number of semester credit hours for courses taken as a non-degree student to an undergraduate degree program, with approval of the dean. Non-degree 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 non-degree student. (Students enrolled as non-degree students prior to the fall semester of 1970 are subject to the policies in effect between January of 1969 and August of 1970).
Non-degree 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 non-degree 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 non-degree student during the semester the student has applied for admission to the desired degree program.
Official Notification of Admission
Official notification of admission to CU-Denver as an undergraduate, graduate, or non-degree student is provided by the Office of Admissions and Records on a Statement of Admission Eligibility Form. Letters from the various schools and colleges indicating acceptance into a particular program are pending subject to official notification of admission to the institution. Applicants who do not receive official notification of admission within a reasonable period of time (approximately 3 weeks) after submitting application materials should contact the Office of Admissions and Records (303) 556-2660.
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.
'Each school/college limits the number of semester hours transferable toward a degree program. Students should contact the school/college to which they will be applying (as a degree student) for information about the acceptable number of hours which may be taken as a non-degree student.

guidelines in the current Schedule of Classes. Arrangements may be made through the Bursar’s 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 Classes 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 Classes. 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 loans and other types of indebtedness which are due after graduation.
Personal checks are accepted for any University obligation. Any student who pays with a check which is not acceptable to the bank will be charged an additional service charge of $ 15.
AUDIT
To qualify as an auditor for fall or spring semester, a student must be 21 years of age or older or approved by the Registrar. 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 or have outstanding financial obligations to 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 instate 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 important, 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 tuition classification 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 a student is classified as non-resident for tuition purposes, the student must petition the Office of Admissions and Records for a change in classification. Petitions must be submitted no later than two weeks before the first day of classes of the term for which the student wishes to be classified as a nonresident so that the classification will be determined prior to registration and payment of fees. It is preferred for petitions to be received 30 days prior to the term. Late petitions will not be considered until the next semester. Specific information may be obtained from the Office of Admissions and Records.
III. FINANCIAL AID AT THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT DENVER
The financial aid program 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
'A copy of the Colorado Revised Statutes (1973), as amended, is available in the University of Colorado at Denver Admissions Office.

Educational expenses at CU-Denver 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/Student Employment 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 1985-86 academic year the standard budgets allowed $245 per month living allowance for dependent students living at home, $545 per month for single students not living at home, and $812 per month for married students. An allowance of $148 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 approximate full-time cost of tuition, fees, and medical expenses for the 1985-86 academic year was $1,168 for a resident student and $4,662 for a nonresident student. Graduate students were assessed $ 1,142 as residents and $4,896 as nonresidents. Books and supplies were estimated at $350 for the 1985-86 academic year.
All expenses will increase slightly for the 1986-87 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 and complete application materials have been received, 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 wjho do not document financial need.
How to Apply
Application forms may be obtained by contacting the Office of Financial Aid/Student Employment. Students are asked to complete an institutional application and a need analysis form. The application includes a checklist of other 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 1986-87 academic year, the above three criteria must be met for 1985 and 1986.
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 register for the draft through Selective Service must be registered in order to be eligible for federal financial aid for the 1986-87 academic year. All students must sign a Statement of Selective Service Registration Compliance, and proof of registration may be required.
Application and Completion Dates
A student may apply for a Pell Grant at any time up to May 1987. GSL applications must be submitted approximately 55 days before the end of the academic term. 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/Student Employment.
Students should have begun the application process by February 1, 1986, and all materials should have been submitted to the Office of Financial Aid/Student Employment and forms processed by ACT and the Pell Grant contractor by April 1986. 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 CU-Denver Office of Admissions and Records for application forms and procedures. Applicants will not receive

LOANS
Colorado Guaranteed Student Loan Program. The primary purpose of this program is to make low-interest, long-term 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 Colordo Guaranteed Student Loan Program office. Some lenders provide the Office of Financial Aid/Student Employment with a supply of application forms. 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 six-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/Student Employment. If the student shows financial need, then the student is eligible 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 GSL application, and copies of family tax returns to the Office of Financial Aid/Student Employment.
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


General Information / 19
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 usually 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.
Colorado Alternative Student Loan Program (CASL). This loan program allows students to borrow up to $7,000 per academic year for educational expenses and it also permits other individuals, such as parents, other relatives, or close friends, to borrow on behalf of the student. The borrower must have sufficient income and credit to qualify to be eligible for CASL. The interest rate will probably be less than 13% per year and will be specified at the time private funds are committed for this loan program. Monthly repayment of interest begins immediately and continues for up to four years if the student continues to be enrolled in college. Loan principal repayment begins 120 days after the student ceases enrollment and the entire loan must be repaid within ten years. The student must be pursuing a degree at CU-Denver in order to be eligible for CASL, but there is no minimum number of credit hours required. The program is funded by private funds and is managed by the Colorado Student Loan Program.
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. Students are permitted to choose their own job from the eligible positions posted. 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, Career Planning and Placement Office, and the CU-Denver 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.
OTHER SOURCES OF AID

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 satisfactory academic progress as defined by the Office of Financial Aid/Student Employment. The satisfactory academic progress standards have three sections: 1) A student must complete a minimum number of hours compared to hours attempted each term by obtaining a grade of D or better if undergraduate, or a grade of C or better if graduate; 2) A student must maintain a cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 for undergraduates and 3.0 for graduates; and 3) A student is eligible for financial aid only until a certain number of credit hours have been earned. Students should obtain a complete copy of the current CU-Denver Satisfactory Progress Policy from the Office of Financial Aid/Student Employment to determine their eligibility for financial aid. Colorado Scholars, Regents Scholars, Deans Scholars, Pell Grant, Guaranteed Student Loan, and PLUS loans may be received by students who are enrolled at least half time. Other aid may be received only by full-time students.
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 dates.
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 Classes for each term. For the Fall 1985 Semester, the policy for refunds upon complete withdrawal from the University was 100% of tuition and refundable fees minus $25 refund if the student withdrew before the term began, 75% of tuition and refundable fees if the student withdrew by the third day of the third week of classes, and 50% of tuition and refundable fees 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

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.


General Information / 21
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 3'may be considered for advanced placement by the discipline concerned. For more information contact your high school counselor or the Director of Admissions for CU-Denver.
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 CU-Denver, 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 CU-Denver 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 $30. For more information call 556-2861.
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
To have credit for educational experiences evaluated, applicants with military experience should submit the following with their application: (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 the credit is applicable to the degree the student is seeking at CU-Denver.
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 6 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 then 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.
Beginning with the Spring 1984 Semester, some schools and colleges have approved use of a PLUS/M1NUS grading system, where a B + corresponds to 3.3 credit points per credit hour, and a B - corresponds to 2.7 credit points per credit hour. Instructors in those schools and colleges may, at their discretion, use the PLUS/M1NUS system, but are not required to do so.
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.
An incomplete grade is only awarded when special circumstances prevent a student’s completing a course during the term.
'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 points.


22 / University of Colorado at Denver
Students have one year to complete an INCOMPLETE. After one year, an IW is regarded as a DROP-PASSING; an IF as a DROPFAILING. Students should not re-register for courses for which they have received INCOMPLETES.
Students receiving INCOMPLETES: most schools and colleges require a contract between the instructor and student outlining the work necessary to “complete” the incomplete.
P/F—pass/fail—P grade is not included in the grade-point average; the f grade is included; up to 16 hours of pass/fail course work may be credited toward a bachelor’s degree.
H/P/F—honors/pass/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.
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. Changes to or from a pass/fail basis may be made only during the regular drop/ add period.
2. Up to 16 semester hours of regular course work may be taken on a pass/fail basis and credited toward the bachelor’s degree. Flowever, only 6 hours of course work may be taken pass/fail in any given semester.
3. Academic deans and faculty will not be informed of 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 with a pass/fail designation are automatically converted by the grade application system. Grades of D and above convert to grades of P.
4. The record of pass/fail registration is maintained by the Office of Admissions and Records.
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.
7. If you register for a course on a pass/fail basis, you may not later decide that you want a letter grade. Each school or college limits the hours and courses for which you may register on a pass/ fail basis. Please note: many colleges will not accept a “P” grade for transfer credit.
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 total points by the total hours.
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

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 of their college or school 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. Students must present picture identification.

3. After the 10th week of a fall or spring semester (7 th week of a summer term), courses may not be dropped unless there are circumstances clearly beyond the student’s control. In addition to the instructor’s certification (as in 2 above), the student must petition the academic dean for approval to drop the courses. Tuition will be charged even though the drop is allowed.
4. Dropping all courses requires an official University withdrawal form.
Withdrawal from the University
To withdraw from the University, the student must obtain approval of the dean’s office, Bursar’s Office, and Records Office. The withdrawal date is recorded on the student’s permanent record page. If the withdrawal date is prior to the 13th day of the semester (8th day of the summer term), the courses will not appear on the student’s permanent record. If the withdrawal date is after the 12th day, the courses will appear with W grades. Students may not withdraw after the 10th week of the semester (7th week of the summer term) except under documented circumstances clearly beyond their control.
Students who are receiving veteran’s benefits or financial aid also must obtain the required signature of those respective offices.
A student who stops attending classes without officially withdrawing from the University will receive grades of Ffor all course work enrolled for during that term.
To withdraw from the University, a graduate student must apply to the dean of the Graduate School for permission to withdraw in good standing. Students who withdraw without communicating with the dean and without filing the appropriate Withdrawal Form will be marked as having failed their courses for the term.
For specific signatures, requirements, and tuition adjustment the student should refer to the Schedule of Classes published prior to the beginning of each term.
Originality of Work
In all academic areas it is imperative that either work be original or explicit acknowledgment be given for the use of other persons’ ideas or language. Students should consult with instructors to learn the specific procedures appropriate for documenting the work of others in each given field. Breaches of academic honesty

can result in disciplinary measures ranging from lowering of a grade to permanent compulsory withdrawal from the University.
Inspection of Educational Records
Periodically, but not less than annually, the University of Colorado informs students of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, with which the institution intends to comply fully. The Act was designated to protect the privacy of educational records, to establish the right of students to inspect and review their educational records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. Students also have the right to file complaints with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act Office (FERPA) concerning alleged failures by the institution to comply with the Act.
Local policy explains in detail the procedures to be used by the institution for compliance with the provisions of the Act. Copies of the policy can be found in the library on each of the several campuses of the University of Colorado.
A directory of records which lists all educational records maintained on students by this institution may be found in the Office of Admissions and Records on each campus.
The following items of student information have been designated by the University of Colorado as public or directory information: student name, address, telephone number, dates of attendance, registration status, class, major field of study, awards, honors, degree(s) conferred, past and present participation in officially recognized sports and activities, physical factors (height, weight) of athletes, date and place of birth. This information may be disclosed by the University for any purpose at its discretion.
Currently enrolled students may withhold disclosure of any category of information under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. To withhold disclosure, written notification must be received in the Office of Admissions and Records on the appropriate campus prior to the end of the drop/add period in each and every term. Forms requesting the withholding of directory information are available in the Office of Admissions and Records.
Students must request each term to have directory information withheld for that term. The University of Colorado assumes that when a student fails to request to have directory information withheld for a term, the student is indicating approval for disclosure of information for that term and following terms until otherwise requested.
Questions concerning the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act may be referred to the Office of Admissions and Records.
Good Standing
To remain in good standing within a particular school or college, an undergraduate student must maintain a grade-point average of at least 2.0 (C) in all course work attempted. A graduate degree student must maintain a grade-point average of at least 3.0. Non-degree students must maintain a minimum grade-point average of 2.0. Policies on academic probation, suspension, and dismissal vary by college or school, and students should refer to the sections of this bulletin dealing with the colleges and schools for information.
Student Classification
Students are classified according to the number of semester hours passed:
Freshman 0-29 hours
Sophomore 30-59 hours
Junior 60-89 hours
Senior 90 + hours
All transfer students will be classified on the same basis according to their hours of credit accepted by the University of Colorado.
Student Indebtedness
A student with overdue financial obligations to the University will not be permitted to register for any subsequent term, to graduate, or to be listed among those receiving a degree or credit from the University. Transcripts will not be released for a student with an overdue financial obligation to the University.

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 life-long learner and the non-traditional student. More than 7,000 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. CU-Denver’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 CU-Denver’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 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

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 556-3460.
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, East Anglia, and Reading, England; the University of Bourdeaux, 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; Konan University, Japan; the University of
Seville, Spain; and the National Taiwan University, Taipei, Taiwan. Engineering and commercial Spanish students may be particularly interested in programs at 1TESM 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 Guadalajara, 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 interested in studying humanities or English literature can do so for a semester in London, England.
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 for academic year-long programs. Financial aid from the University can be applied to program costs in most cases, and all credit earned while abroad is considered resident credit.
More information about study abroad programs is available in the Office of International Education, Boulder campus, 492-7741.

College of Business and Administration / 35
Registration for Business Courses
Admission to some courses offered by the College will be limited to those students who have been admitted to the College of Business and Administration and to other students as provided below. The course admission criteria are designed to meet a number of objectives:
1. To assure access to business courses for students seeking a business degree.
2. To serve students in other colleges who have business-related educational objectives or requirements.
3. To serve non-degree students who have specific career or educational goals.
In order to serve the needs of nonbusiness degree students, core courses in the College of Business (Acct. 200, B.Ad. 100, l.S. 200, B.Law 300. Fin. 305, Mk. 300, Or.Mg. 330, Pr.Mg. 300, Q.M. 201) will be open to all University of Colorado students in good standing on a space-available basis provided prerequisites are met. However, students admitted to the College of Business will be given priority in registering. For all business courses, nonbusiness degree students will be able to enroll up to a maximum of 21 semester hours.
Admission to noncore business courses will be limited to the following students:
1. Those admitted to the College of Business. (Refer to Model Degree Program in this section.)
2. Nonbusiness degree students who may register for business courses outside the core listed above. However, the total number of College of Business courses may not exceed the 21-semester-hour limit, and students must have the prerequisites for all courses requested. Students intending to transfer to the undergraduate business program should note the College residence requirement outlined under Graduation Requirements.
3. Non-degree students who may enroll for a maximum of 15 semester hours of business courses. Students must have the prerequisites for all courses requested. Students desiring to register for business courses in excess of the 15-hour limit must have the approval of a business academic adviser.
4. Admitted graduate degree students who may enroll for 500-and 600-level graduate business courses. Undergraduate degree and non-degree students must register for undergraduate business courses.
Attendance Regulations
Classroom attendance is at the discretion of the instructor. Students are responsible for determining each instructor’s policy on attendance.
Adding and Dropping Courses
See the General Information section of this bulletin for University-wide drop/add policies.
Administrative Drop
The College reserves the right to drop administratively students who are incorrectly enrolled in business courses. Instructors also may recommend to the College of Business and Administration office that students who fail to meet expected course attendance or course prerequisites be dropped from the course. Generally, students who are administratively dropped will not receive tuition refunds.
Withdrawal
Students may withdraw without discredit within the first ten weeks of the semester. The signatures of the instructors are required in addition to those of the dean. Withdrawals following the tenth week of the semester are permitted only for circumstances clearly beyond the student’s control.
Appeal Procedure
Students should contact a business adviser in the College of Business and Administration office for appeal and petition procedures pertaining to rules and regulations of the College.
SPECIFIC UNDERGRADUATE ACADEMIC POLICIES Standards of Performance
Students are held to basic standards of performance established for their classes with respect to attendance, active participation in course work, promptness in completion of assignments, correct English usage both in writing and in speech, accuracy in calculations, and general quality of scholastic workmanship.
In general, examinations are required in all courses and for all students, including graduating seniors.
To be in good standing, students must have an overall grade-point average of not less than 2.0 (C = 2.0) for all course work attempted and a 2.0 average for all business courses attempted. This applies to work taken at all University campuses. Activity physical education and remedial courses are not included in the overall average.
When semester grades become available, students below standard will be notified of (1) probationary status or (2) suspension. Students are responsible for being aware of their academic standing at all times, and late grades and/or notification do not waive this responsibility.
College rules governing probation and suspension are as follows:
1. Any student whose overall grade average, or business course average, is less than 2.0 will be placed on probation immediately. A student may be removed from probation when the overall average and the business average have been raised to 2.0.
2. 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.


36 / University of Colorado at Denver
6. Any student earning all failing grades or no academic credit for the semester will not be permitted to register without the approval of a business adviser.
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.
Plus/Minus Grading. College of Business faculty have the option to use plus/minus grading effective with the Spring 1984 Semester. For example, B + corresponds to 3.3 credit points (for each semester hour), B - corresponds to 2.7 credit points.
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.
Repeating Courses. A failed course (grade of F) may be repeated, but the F will be included in the grade-point average and will appear on the transcript. A course in which a grade of D - or better is obtained may not be repeated without written approval from a business adviser. Courses repeated without an adviser’s approval may not be computed in the grade-point average calculation.
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 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 courses from junior colleges will not be applied toward degree requirements if the course work is offered at the junior-senior level at CU-Denver.
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
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. Specific information is available in the College of Business and Administration


College of Business and Administration / 37
office. Students seeking credit for CLEP must have prior approval of a business academic adviser.
CLEP credit will be applied in the same manner as transfer credits. For credit, students must rank in the 67th 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 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 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, internships, 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 seminar 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.
Non-degree Student Hours
Accepted business students may transfer toward undergraduate degree requirements a maximum of 12 hours of work taken as a non-degree student. Approval of the dean is required. Hours taken beyond the maximum must be approved by the dean before credit will be given.
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 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.
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 CU-Denver transcript to a


38 / University of Colorado at Denver
business adviser. Forms are available at CU-Denver Admissions or the College of Business office; transcript request forms are available at CU-Denver 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 Degree Programs
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. Students in a double degree program must complete at least 150 semester hours of course work. Students desiring admission to combined and double degree programs must apply to and be accepted by the College of Business. Applications are available from a business adviser.
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 interviews are 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.
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. The remaining 15 hours may be in either, or some combination of both. The College reserves the right to disallow any credit that is not appropriate academic credit as determined by the College. 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. The student is responsible for contacting the instructor concerning the removal of incomplete grades.
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. Business courses completed at any University of Colorado campus after the candidate has been admitted to the College are acceptable toward this requirement if they correspond to courses in the CU-Denver program. Students should check with a business adviser to verify the acceptability of courses taken at other CU campuses.
3. Grade Average. A minimum cumulative scholastic grade average of 2.0 for all courses attempted at the University acceptable toward the B.S. (Business) degree, 2.0 for all business courses, and 2.0 in the four required courses for the student’s area of emphasis, must be maintained.

5. Filing for Graduation. Students must file an Undergraduate Candidacy form and Diploma Card, and request a senior audit from a business adviser prior to registering for their final semester. Failure to do so may delay graduation. Also, students desiring to change their area of emphasis after filing for graduation must have the change approved by the graduation supervisor prior to registering for their final semester. Changes after that time will delay graduation.

Students interested in this area may start their preparation by electing language and other liberal arts and sciences courses in their program.
AAARKETING
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.

There are no prerequisites needed to enter the M.B.A. program, and there is every reason to believe that students with nonbusiness backgrounds have equal chance for success.
Applicants for the M.S. degree, however, may be required to take prerequisite courses, depending on the individual’s academic and professional background. For more detailed information, contact the graduate student adviser.
General Information — Master's Programs
Advising. As soon as possible after admission, students should schedule an appointment with a graduate adviser to discuss general degree requirements and transfer credits. Master of Science students should consult with the adviser to determine any background course work that may be required. All graduate students need to prepare a formal degree plan during their first term in residence. This plan, with appropriate signatures, will 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. Because so many CU-Denver students work full or part time, there are many opportunities to attend classes on a part-time basis and at times convenient to individuals’ work schedules. Contact the graduate student adviser for more detailed information on degree plan schedules.
Minimum Hours Required. A candidate for a M.B.A. degree must complete a minimum of 48 semester hours of graduate work. A candidate for a Master of Science in business must complete a minimum of 30 semester hours of graduate work plus any required business background courses. 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 and April.
Graduation. Students must file an Application for Admission to Candidacy and Diploma Card with the Graduate School of Business Administration prior to registering for the term in which they intend to graduate.
Plus/Minus Grading. College of Business faculty have the option to use plus/minus grading effective with the Spring 1984 Semester. For example, B + corresponds to 3.3 credit points (for each semester hour), B- corresponds to 2.7 credit points.
Minimum Grade-Point Average. A minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 must be achieved in approved courses taken for a graduate business degree after the student’s admission to a graduate business program. Courses taken as a non-degree student normally are not included in the grade-point average. If the student’s cumulative grade-point average falls below 3.0, the student will be placed on academic probation and given two
regular semesters in which to achieve the required 3.0 cumulative average. Failure to achieve the required average within the alloted 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.
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 dean.
Time Limit. All graduate courses, including the Master of Science comprehensive final examination, must 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

INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE
The College of Design and Planning at CU-Denver 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 research service program through the Center for Community Development and Design.
An undergraduate degree program, the Bachelor of Environmental Design, is available through the University of Colorado, College of Environmental Design, in Boulder. The graduate programs in Denver and the undergraduate program in Boulder are in two separate colleges. Students interested in the Boulder program should see the bulletin for that campus.
The College of Design and Planning at CU-Denver occupies a unique place both within the nation and within the state. The College is the only location for graduate design and planning education in Colorado. The College administers an outstanding Center for Community Development and Design, offering research and technical assistance to communities accross the state.
The College offers programs for two major purposes —- to educate men and women who can meet the complex and demanding challenge of designing and planning the built 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 design and planning professions have broadened. The social and physical problems encountered by the architect, urban designer, landscape architect, planner, 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 Planning and Community Development Division is a recognized program and currently in the accreditation process by the Planning Accreditation Board. In 1983, the Landscape Architecture Division received full accreditation from
the Accrediting Board of the American Society of Landscape Architects.
Design and Planning Library
The Design and Planning Library, a branch of the Auraria Library, serves as a learning resource center in the fields of design and planning. It contains the following collections to support the curricula of the College:
1. Reference collection of technical materials selected to support design and planning studio projects.
2. Circulating collection of material in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, interior design, urban design, and planning and community development.
3. Collection of planning documents issued by local, regional, state, and federal agencies with an emphasis on planning materials pertaining to Colorado communities and concerns.
4. Periodicals relating to design and planning.
5. Reserve collection providing resource materials for required and supplemental class reading.
6. Growing nonprint media collection which includes architectural slides and microcomputer software.
In addition, the 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 Design and Planning library is open 71 hours per week, including evenings and Sundays. The staff consists of a librarian, library assistant, and several student assistants. The library provides a number of services including reference and research assistance and library-use instruction. Additional services, such as interlibrary loan and computer-assisted research, are provided through the Auraria Library.
Computer-Aided Instruction
The College established a computer-aided instruction laboratory in the fall of 1981. The laboratory has micro and minicomputers 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,


College of Design and Planning / 51
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, University of Colorado at Denver, 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.
Non-degree Students
Beginning with Fall 1981, the College of Design and Planning accepts only up to 16 credit hours of courses taken as a graduate non-degree 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 two degree programs, both of which lead to the Master of Architecture. The three-year program leads to the first professional degree for architectural practice; the one-year program leads to a post professional degree.
The three-year program is open to holders of the bachelor’s degree outside the field of architecture and typically requires 96 credit hours for completion.
Admission with advanced standing to the three-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 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, urban design, or in architecture with an energy specialization.
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.
Admission
An Admissions Committee will review the application materials and select students to be admitted to programs. Applicants will be notified that they have been accepted, or have not been accepted, prior to May 1.
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 (GRE) 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.
Application
The complete set of materials for application for the Master of Architecture programs include the application form, college transcripts, three recommendations, statement of purpose, and a portfolio of academic, creative, and professional work. To be considered for admission, the complete set of application materials must be received by March 15 preceding the fall semester of entry. The portfolio must be no larger than 14 inches by 17 inches. The application form and additional information may be obtained by writing to the Director of Architecture, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.

MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE IN URBAN DESIGN
Urban design is one of the graduate design and planning programs taught at CU-Denver’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.
Admission
In order for students to be considered for admission into the Master of Architecture in Urban Design program, they must submit application forms, 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. For foreign students who are considering a second professional degree, the College has begun a policy of admitting students coming directly from overseas into the spring semester only. Applications for all programs must be received by March 15 of the preceding year. All other application requirements must be met. All portfolio materials submitted with the application must be in 8 Vi" by 14" format or smaller. If slides are included, they must be in a loose-leaf slide holder. It is recommended that students indicate the type and length of all work experience they have had since receiving a degree. Application forms and information may be obtained by writing to the Director of Master of Architecture in Urban Design, College of Design and Planning, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.
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 Main-streets 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 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


54 / University of Colorado at Denver
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.

ELECTIVES/SEMINARS
Electives and seminars are offered on topics pertinent to the interior design discipline, i.e., Environmental Psychology, Man-Environment Systems, Sociology, Environmental Form, and Research Methods. Specific topics are listed in the Schedule of Classes for each semester.
AAASTER OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE
The Master of Landscape Architecture (M.L.A.) degree program at the University of Colorado at Denver is fully 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


56 / University of Colorado at Denver
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 two courses: Landscape Architecture Thesis Research, and Landscape Architecture Thesis. The thesis may be a design, research, natural resource, community development, or historic 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 interdisciplinary 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
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.

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


College of Design and Planning / 57
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, CU-Denver 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. Thirty-six 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 plan-making 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 24 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 elctives, from other programs in the College of Design and Planning, or from other graduate schools at CU-Denver and the metro area. The division has organized the following optional areas of specialization:
Community and Economic Development Energy, Natural Resources, and Environmental Planning Land Use Planning, Transportation, and Physical Design Planning and Community Development Administration Regional Analysis, Planning, and Administration Small Town and Neighborhood Planning Social Planning and Human Services
Admission
Application forms must be submitted by March 15 for the fall semester. On a space available basis, applications are 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 (CCDD) is the public service outreach component of the University of Colorado at Denver, College of Design and Planning. Utilizing the unique resources of the College, the CCDD coordinates faculty, staff, and students in providing community development, planning, design education, research, and technical assistance to neighborhoods and small towns throughout Colorado that cannot afford or do not have access to these services. Annually, the Center assists as many as 75 different communities and urban neighborhoods and small towns throughout Colorado on 200 discrete projects involving over 200 students and three dozen faculty and staff.
The Center’s work focuses on three interrelated programmatic elements: to provide educationally oriented public service by being responsive to community requests for assistance; to improve students’ educational experiences by the application of theoretical concepts and methodological skills learned in the classroom through professionally supervised field work; and, to advance the state of knowledge of communities and the design and planning fields through research on the requested projects.
Students in the College of Design and Planning have several alternatives to work on Center projects: through required or elective courses, for thesis, through paid internships especially in the summer, or compete for the Mark Murphy Internship, a twelve month paid position to work in small town planning while enrolled in the Master in Planning and Community Development Program.
The service, education, and research programs of the CCDD are integrated and delivered through a system of community and neighborhood development offices; in Denver, the North Denver Workshop, the Westside Neighborhood Design Center, and the Northeast Denver Neighborhood Development Center; in Colorado Springs, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs CCDD office; and in Grand Junction, the Rural Community Assistance Center. The Center also has cooperative agreements to provide needed assistance through the community education and assistance offices in five western Colorado institutions of higher education.
The Center enjoys an excellent national and growing international reputation for responsive service to communities, as well as for the development of innovative approaches to field-based education and applied research.

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, bio-engineering, 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 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.


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 61
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).

The College of Engineering and Applied Science at CU-Denver 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 — CU-Denver
The University of Colorado at Denver will accept for matriculation only those prospective engineering students who designate a degree program awarded by the CU-Denver College of Engineering and Applied Science. For 1986-87, the following engineering degrees are awarded by CU-Denver: 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 CU-Denver 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.
A second bachelor’s degree may be of interest to some students. 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
CU-Denver 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 CU-Denver Office of Admissions and Records for the Schedule of Summer Classes.
For some students there are advantages in starting their college careers during the summer term. Most required freshman and sophomore courses are normally offered at CU-Denver 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. Applications are available in October or November for the following academic year.
A limited number of partial tuition scholarships are available for new engineering freshman and transfer students. The application deadlines for these scholarships are July 15 for the Fall Semester and December 15 for the Spring Semester. Contact the dean’s office, UA 516.
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 CU-Denver:
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.


62 / University of Colorado at Denver
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. CU-Denver 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 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.
Transfer Students
Students transferring from other accredited collegiate institutions will 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 2.0 cumulative grade-point average for all courses attempted, for all courses taken from the student’s major department, and for all courses that count toward graduation
'Applicants not meeting these requirements will be considered on an individual basis. A student who is not prepared should expect to make up deficiencies.
2 A 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.
3Electives 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.


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 63
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. 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


64 / University of Colorado at Denver
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 contact the departmental office for advising appointments.
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 hours per week — three courses (maximum of 12 semester hours)
Employed 20 hours per week —four courses (maximum of 15 semester hours)
Employed 10 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. Students must repeat a course in which a grade of D was earned if that course is a
prerequisite to another course. 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, in those courses l equired toward graduation requirements, and in all courses taken from the student’s major department in order 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 average falls below 2.0 in any of the three categories listed above 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 full-time student) of


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 65
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 CU-Denver 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 Classes.
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 I/F grade. The student is expected to complete the course requirements, e.g., the final examination or 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 upper division social-humanistic elective 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 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, Flonors or Special Honors (at the discretion of the Engineering


66 / University of Colorado at Denver
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 and some departments may specify particular courses that must be taken.
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 are encouraged 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 College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
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 must 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 completion of their j unior 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 beingin 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 departmental 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-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 (O for all courses attempted, for all required courses, and for all courses taken from the student’s major department. A department may require 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-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.


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 67
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 Master of Science or the Master of Engineering 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:

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 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 CU-Denver 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 CU-Denver 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


68 / University of Colorado at Denver
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. Socio-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 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 CU-Denver. 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 MATHEAAATICS
Charles I. Sherrill III, Coordinator
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, circuits, 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 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 consider taking a foreign language. Some 300- and 400-level language courses may be counted as Socio-humanistic electives. Under all circumstances, a student must plan a complete program and obtain the approval of a departmental adviser at the beginning of the sophomore year.
The B.S. degree in applied mathematics 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 Socio-humanistic elective area must be approved by the student’s adviser and should include 6 semester hours of upper division (junior or senior) level courses.

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.
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 CU-Denver 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, 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 CU-Denver. 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 18-24 semester hours in Socio-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.

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 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 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 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-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.

Notes for B.S. (Computer Science)
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 Socio-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 Socio-humanistic elective course. Students must pass Engl. 102 with a Cor better, or must pass an equivalency test. If students pass the equivalency test, they may complete their communication requirement by taking Engl. 315 or other approved communication course. (A list of approved Socio-humanistic courses is available in the E.E./C.S. office, UA 402.)
2. Or Chem 113.
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 Program
The professional possibilities in electrical engineering include teaching and research in a university; research and development of new electrical or electronic devices, instruments, systems, or products; design of computers, computer interfaces, communications and control systems, or power systems; production and quality-control of electrical products or systems for private industry or government; and sales or management for a private firm or branch of government.
The electrical engineering course of study begins with principles of physics, chemistry, and mathematics and follows with an intensive training in the theory and laboratory application of logic and electrical circuits, electromagnetic and transmission theory,
electrical machines and transformers, and electronics and microprocessors. 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 future role in society. 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 (antennas, communication systems, computer design, controls, digital system design, electronics, electro-optics, microwaves, power, signal processing), it is impossible for the undergraduate training to cover them in detail. Intense specialization may be left to additional training that graduates may receive when they assume positions with industrial firms, or acquire by specialization through graduate work beyond the bachelor’s degree.
Undergraduate students who 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 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 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 has been 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 Socio-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.


College of Engineering and Applied Science / 75
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 CU-Denver.

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.


76 / University of Colorado at Denver
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.
In order to earn a bachelor’s degree in engineering physics from the Department of Physics (UCB), a student must, in addition to any other requirements, successfully complete 30 semester hours of courses on the Boulder campus, including 12 semester hours in upper division physics courses.

MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
R. Wayne Adkins, Acting 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 CU-Denver. To be awarded the B.S. (M.E.) a student must achieve and maintain at least a 2.0 in all M.E. courses.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE SCHOOL
The Graduate School is a University-wide body which authorizes programs within its constituent colleges and schools. At CU-Denver, 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 CU-Denver faculty. Some departments in which this is the case are communication, 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 CU-Denver. 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 write to the Dean of The Graduate School, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.

Financial Aid for Graduate Study
COLORADO GRADUATE GRANT
The Colorado Graduate Grant is administered by The Graduate School.
Competition for these funds is based on demonstrated need and is open to graduate students who are residents of the State of Colorado. Grant awards are announced each semester for the following semester. Applications are available from the Office of Financial Aid.
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 1985-86 was: one-half time instructor, $8,320 for the academic year; one-half time teaching assistant, $6,656 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. 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 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.
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.


80 / University of Colorado at Denver
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. Upon the recommendation of the Admissions Committee and 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.
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 the requirements for a bachelor’s degree, may be admitted to The Graduate School by special permission of the dean.
A University of Colorado senior enrolled in the College of Engineering and Applied Science who needs not more than 18 semester hours or 36 credit points to meet the requirements for a bachelor’s degree may be admitted to The Graduate School, but is not eligible for financial aid, scholarships, or fellowships as a graduate student until the equivalent of the minimum requirements for the bachelor’s degree have been satisfied.
Application Procedures
Graduate students who expect to study at CU-Denver should contact the CU-Denver 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 CU-Denver 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 chairperson 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 non-degree students (below).
A completed application must be in the office of the major department at least 90 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 1986-87, 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).
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 apropriate 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.


The Graduate School / 81
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.
GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATIONS
At the option of any department, the Graduate Record Examination may be required of applicants for assistantships, 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 obtained from The Graduate School office or the CU-Denver 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).
NON-DEGREE STUDENTS
A student not wishing to earn an advanced degree from the University of Colorado should apply to the Office of Admissions and Records, CU-Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202. Non-degree students will be allowed to register only on the campus to which they have been admitted.
Non-degree 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 non-degree 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 non-degree 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 CU-Denver 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 Classes). 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, CU-Denver, stating the exceptional circumstances which justify the change. This letter, endorsed by the instructor of the course, must 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 course 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


82 / University of Colorado at Denver
contact the dean’s office for information on the appeal process regarding the full load requirement for financial aid purposes.
AAAXIMUM LOAD
No graduate student may receive 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 CU-Denver is 10 hours per 10-week summer term. A graduate student may contact the dean’s office for information on the appeal process regarding an overload.
UNIVERSITY EMPLOYEES
Full-time employees of the University may not undertake more than 6 credit hours per semester. Part-time employees, including assistants, may take such work as is approved by the major department.
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 advance 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 expect to obtain all the training, knowledge, and grasp of ideas necessary to meet the requirements for an advanced degree from formal courses. They should work on their own initiative, reading widely and thoughtfully, reaching their own conclusions, and acquiring a sense of values, perspective, 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 credits 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 the course once, upon written recommendation to the dean by the chairman of 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 non-degree 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 Parti 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


The Graduate School / 83
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.
Students planning to graduate should ascertain current deadlines of The Graduate School. It is the graduate student’s and the department’s responsibility to see that all requirements and deadlines are met (i.e., changing of IW grades, notifying The Graduate School of final examinations, etc.).
Departments or program committees may have additional deadlines which must be met by graduate students in that department or program. It is the student’s responsibility to ascertain such requirements and to meet them as designated by the department or program chairman.
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 l: 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 that are listed at the 500 level or above and that 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 197 5 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 modem languages as each department requires. See special departmental requirements.
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 approved by the dean of The Graduate School.


84 / University of Colorado at Denver
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. To be eligible for courses to be considered for transfer, a student must have an overall B average in all courses taken at the University of Colorado in The Graduate School.
Continuing Education Course Work
Students may use the resources of the Division of Continuing Education in the pursuit of graduate study only if they obtain proper academic approval from the major department and the graduate dean in advance.
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 that 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 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 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


The Graduate School / 85
examining committee has been completed. The student may retake the examination only once.
Supplemental Examinations
Supplemental examinations should be simply an extension 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.
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).
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
ANTHROPOLOGY
The unique intellectual challenge of anthropology is to integrate knowledge from many disciplines for a global understanding of cultures in the past and the present. Individual courses in biological and cultural anthropology, archaeology, and linguistics cut across lines between the humanities, social, and natural sciences. Because of this integrative perspective on the human condition and the training provided in objectively assessing cultural patterning and social interaction, an anthropology M.A. provides a versatile base for career development and avocational pursuit.
The M.A. program at CU-Denver affords training in the traditional subfields of biological and cultural anthropology, archaeology, and linguistics along with the opportunity to specialize in two interdisciplinary, applied programs — medical anthropology, and community and urban anthropology. An internship is required within the applied programs and is an option within the traditional programs. Archaeology training is offered although not as a formal program. It is possible to specialize in this field by supplementing CU-Denver’s course offerings with independent research and field training elsewhere.
Applied Programs. Medical anthropology emphasizes the importance of biological and cultural factors in the determination of health and sickness. The approach is biocultural, integrating knowledge from the health sciences and the social sciences concerning causes of sickness and sources of treatment for restoring health. Courses in the department are complemented by electives in other departments (biology, psychology, sociology) and programs on this campus (health administration, education, design and planning) and at the CU-Health Sciences Center (Schools of Medicine and Nursing).
Community and urban anthropology offers training toward the application of anthropological concepts and methods of analyses of community or neighborhood culture, social organization, environment and their interrelations. An emphasis is placed on the relevance of such applications for community action, problemsolving, and planning and policy decisions. The CU-Denver sociology department is closely allied with the anthropology department through a common chairperson. Internships are jointly administered, and curricula in urban anthropology and sociology are integrated.
Requirements for Admission
Application is open to holders of a B.A., B.S., or higher degree in any field. Acceptance is competitive. It is based on an undergraduate record of good quality (2.75 or better grade-point average for all undergraduate studies), prior training in anthropology (18 semester hours minimum), GRE verbal and quantitative scores, 3 letters of recommendation, and the applicant’s purpose in pursuing the degree. Two copies of transcripts from all undergraduate institutions attended are also required. A student without prior anthropology training may be admitted to the program but may be required to make up the deficiencies without graduate


86 / University of Colorado at Denver
credit or may choose to gain the necessary background as a nondegree student before beginning the graduate program. With this flexibility in mind, applications are welcome from individuals pursuing particular interests and careers, especially in fields pertaining to the medical anthropology and community and urban anthropology areas. Departmental deadlines for receipt of all application materials is April 15 for fall entrance and October 15 for spring admission.
Plan of Study
Students are required to take 30 semester hours of graduate study to complete the M.A. degree. All course work in anthropology must be at the 500 level or above. Students pursuing training in the traditional subfields may elect to write either a thesis and allocate 6 of the required 30 hours to the thesis project or a master’s paper, more limited in scope than a thesis, in conjunction with 6 hours of the required course work.
For the applied programs, the required 30 semester hours’ course of study consists of:
6 hours of theory courses
9 hours of methods courses
6 hours of internship practicum
9 hours of electives in anthropology or allied fields
In lieu of a thesis, an internship research report is included within the 6 internship hours. The student is responsible for assisting faculty in arranging an appropriate internship.
All students are required to pass a 4-hour comprehensive exam taken ordinarily in the fourth semester and no later than the fifth semester after admission. A minimum of two full semesters devoted to advanced study is required by the Graduate School; no more than three years for attaining the M.A. degree is strongly encouraged. Ordinarily, two years of full-time participation are required to complete the M.A. degree.
Further information concerning admission, programs for study, or other items of interest may be obtained by writing the Director of Graduate Studies, Department of Anthropology, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202.

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, and the biological and physical sciences. Professionals such as public school teachers, industrial scientists, engineers, business persons, and others find that such a degree may lead to pay raises, promotions, and new job opportunities. The student may elect the mathematics or science option. 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.
With some exceptions, courses credited toward the degree must be taken through the University of Colorado at Denver, over a period of five years or six successive summers.
The Master of Basic Science degree is supervised by an executive committee, which includes faculty representatives from mathematics and the science disciplines. Application should be made to Master of Basic Science, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th St., Campus Box 144, Denver, CO 80202.
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. Students may be admitted to the program with a deficiency in calculus, but must remedy the deficiency within one year after admission, with grades of C or better.

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, development, and neurobiology).
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 GRE is required of all provisional applicants. Applications are submitted directly to the biology graduate coordinator at CU-Denver.
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 and to the Department of Biology’s Master of Arts in Biology brochure which is available in The Graduate School office or the Biology Department. 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 CU-Denver in any of the following basic fields: analytical, biochemistry, inorganic, organic, or physical chemistry. Additionally, research programs involving environmental and geochemical problems are being offered.
The M.S. program is available to both full- and part-time students. The chemistry faculty at CU-Denver 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 take qualifying examinations covering the major fields of chemistry. The GRE examination is suggested as is the advanced chemistry GRE examination. Failure to meet the full admission standards may lead to a provisional admission.
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 17 to 22 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 26 credit hours of formal course work, 6 credit hours in research


88 / University of Colorado at Denver
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).
Prospective students are encouraged to contact the chemistry graduate adviser, Robert Damrauer, at 556-2743 for additional details concerning the chemistry program, admission procedures, financial assistance, and faculty research interests.

Those selecting Plan II must take two approved 600-level courses.
ECONOMICS
The M.A. program in economics at CU-Denver is directed toward two 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 modem quantitative techniques and providing solid grounding in several applied fields of economics. Whereas these two aims overlap to some degree in the course offerings, prospective degree candidates should determine rather early in their studies at CU-Denver 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, resource economics, environmental economics, labor economics, education of economists, political economy, mathematical economics, and international economics. Persons interested in the program should contact the graduate adviser in the Department of Economics at 556-2616.
Requirements for Admission
1. General requirements of The Graduate School (including a 2.75 undergraduate cumulative grade-point average).
2. Three letters of recommendation.
3. Sixteen semester hours of undergraduate economics.

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 CU-Denver, 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 CU-Denver. 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 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, CU-Denver, 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 March 1 for summer, May 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 CU-Denver, 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, the reader 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.


The Graduate School / 91
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 CU-Denver 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 CU-Denver 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.
Requirements for Admission
A student wishing to pursue work in electrical engineering should read carefully the Requirements for Advanced Degrees section in this bulletin, and also should obtain a copy of the specific electrical engineering requirements by writing to the Director of Graduate Admissions, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202. Non-degree students and those intending to pursue a graduate program at CU-Denver are urged to consult the departmental representative as part of their application procedure.
Degree Requirements
Master’s degree students are expected to present a thesis unless specifically exempted by the department.
The Ph.D. preliminary examination will include the following areas:
Bioengineering

Communication theory
Computers
Control systems
Electric and magnetic fields
Energy conversion and power systems
Mathematics
Physical and semiconductor electronics
Students must complete two sections, mathematics and the area in which they plan 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 business administration, engineering and social sciences, engineering and biological sciences, engineering and behavioral sciences, engineering and public administration. Appropriate non-engineering course work must be available on the campus where the student attends.
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


92 / University of Colorado at Denver
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 department offices.
Additional information about the degree may be obtained from the College of Engineering and Applied Science departmental offices.

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 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 556-2557.

The graduate courses in fine arts are also applicable to the Master of Humanities program at CU-Denver.
FRENCH
At present CU-Denver 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 CU-Denver.
GEOGRAPHY
The M.A. degree program offered at CU-Denver emphasizes 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 CU-Denver. 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,


The Graduate School / 93
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, 556-3456.
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 now awaiting final action. CU-Denver 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 CU-Denver geology department, 556-3456.
HISTORY
The history faculty of the University of Colorado at Denver offers a master’s degree program which encompasses certain fields of modem history. Students applying for 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 also is 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 CU-Denver 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 section of the Graduate Record Examination. 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 requiredof 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
Modem Europe (Since 1500)
Africa
3. Candidates must select a second field of history as their 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.


94 / University of Colorado at Denver
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.

HUMANITIES, MASTER OF
The Master of Humanities is an interdisciplinary degree offered at CU-Denver. 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 CU-Denver.
Requirements for Admission
Students are required to take the Graduate Record Examination aptitude test as an aid in the planning of their 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 three of the following areas (i.e., 3-9 hours in each area):
Communication and theatre History
English Music
Fme arts Philosophy
French language and Spanish language and literature
literature
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, students must uphold the high standards of The Graduate School, maintaining at least a B average in all courses taken subsequent to their admission to the M.H. program.
Required Courses
The only course specifically required for the M.H. degree is the Hum. 500 described above, but students entering the program after January 1986 should consult the M.H. director concerning new required courses that are pending.
The 24 hours (in addition to Hum. 500) required for the degree will normally be drawn from 500-level courses which already exist at CU-Denver.
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 556-2557.


The Graduate School / 95
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 if, in the faculty’s judgment, their record justifies this (also see The Graduate School admission requirements).
Degree Requirements for the M.A. and M.S.
The student must present 30 hours of course work. All mathematics courses submitted must be numbered 500 or higher. If a minor is taken outside of mathematics, the minor courses must be numbered 400 or higher.
There is no thesis requirement for either degree, although a thesis option is available. The candidate must make a one hour oral presentation on an approved topic. A committee of three graduate faculty members is selected by the candidate to approve the topic and supervise its preparation and presentation. There is no foreign language requirement for either master’s degree.
All master’s degree programs must be planned in consultation with an approved adviser on the graduate faculty. Prospective candidates for a master’s degree should select a graduate adviser and develop a degree program plan at the earliest possible date. Contact the department for information on selecting a graduate adviser.
The M.A. is designed as preparation for doctoral study or teaching. The M.A. program provides a thorough education in classical and modem mathematics through fundamental core courses and specialty courses.
The M.S. is oriented toward careers in applied mathematics, but may also prepare the student for doctoral study. The M.S. program has the following options: (1) mathematics of science and engineering, (2) computational mathematics, (3) operations research, (4) discrete mathematics, (5) applied statistics, and (6) computer science. Each option has a required core of courses, but also allows the student the flexibility to take other courses that satisfy individual needs.
Every student is encouraged to participate in the Mathematics Clinic, a program in which students have an opportunity to work on real-world problems supplied by local industry, research firms, or government agencies.
The Mathematics Department also is the residence of the Computational Mathematics Group, an organization that coordinates research and course work in supercomputing and algorithms for advanced computer architectures.
For further information contact the graduate adviser at 556-8442.
MECHANICAL ENGINEERING
The Mechanical Engineering Department offers graduate courses and offers independently a Master of Science degree program. The degrees of Master of Engineering, M.S. in Mechanics, and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering and Mechanics are offered through a coordinated program with the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Colorado at Boulder. The areas of research interest in which a student may undertake studies at CU-Denver include robotics, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, heat transfer, bioengineering, thermodynamics, and mechanical design.
Degree Requirements
At the M.S. degree level, students following Plan I (with thesis) are required to take 9 hours of core courses which include engineering analysis and a selection from thermodynamics, mechanics, design, and mechanisms. Students following Plan II (all formal course work) are required to take 15 hours of core courses in thermodynamics, continuum mechanics, dynamics, and engineering mathematics. The remainder of the program is developed by the student in consultation with the adviser.
For admission to Ph.D. candidacy the student must pass a comprehensive examination to demonstrate a general competence in mechanical engineering at an advanced level. In addition, second-year, college-level reading proficiency must be demonstrated in scientific French, German, Russian, or other foreign language approved by the department upon petition by the student.
Graduate Study in Mechanics
Graduate programs leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanics which emphasize the mechanical sciences of solids and fluids and thermal science, are available through the Department of Mechanical Engineering. For students working in mechanics, a strong cognate program in mathematics is imperative. Specific degree plans emphasize courses of both a fundamental character and a research level treatment. Requirements for the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in mechanics are similar to those in mechanical engineering, with the additional requirements that students following Plan II (all formal course work) at the M.S. level must take 6 hours in advanced calculus, ordinary and differential equations, complex variables, and boundary value problems or their equivalents.
MUSIC
Graduate study in music at CU-Denver is presently offered through several cooperative programs with the University of Colorado at Boulder. Varying amounts of course work toward the Master of Music and the Master of Music Education degrees may be taken on the Denver campus. Admission to these programs is achieved by application to the Office of the Associate Dean for Graduate Study, College of Music, University of Colorado at Boulder, Boulder, CO 80309.
Selected course work for the non-degree graduate student also may be taken on the Denver campus. Special areas of study unique to the College of Music include scoring and arranging, sound synthesis and recording, and music management. Because these are innovative programs, prospective students should make personal inquiry at CU-Denver about requirements, or call the College directly, 556-2727.


96 / University of Colorado at Denver
PHILOSOPHY
Applicants for admission to The Graduate School for work toward an M.A. or Ph.D. degree with a major in philosophy are expected to have had 18 or more semester hours in undergraduate courses in the subject including history of philosophy. While some course work at the graduate level may be taken at CU-Denver in this discipline, all degree programs must be arranged through the University of Colorado at Boulder.
Students wishing to pursue graduate work in philosophy should note Requirements for Advanced Degrees in this bulletin and should obtain from the department a copy of the Graduate Program in Philosophy. The Graduate Record Examination is not required.
Certain special programs exist (M.A.’s in comparative East/West philosophy and in history and philosophy of science), details of which may be had on request.
PHYSICS
While some course work at the graduate level may be taken at CU-Denver in this discipline, all degree programs must be arranged through the University of Colorado at Boulder. Physics courses at the 400 level may be used for graduate credit for students in nonphysics graduate programs.
POLITICAL SCIENCE Requirements for Admission
Students applying for admission to the M.A. program in political science normally should present at least 18 hours of undergraduate or previous graduate work in political science, at least 9 hours of which should be at the upper division or graduate level. Deficiencies may be made up at CU-Denver by enrolling in political science courses as a non-degree student. Deficiencies usually must be made up before the student will be admitted as a regular degree student, and the work involved will be in addition to the minimum hourly requirements for the degree. The department may make exceptions to these requirements in unusual cases (for instance, where course work in related fields such as psychology, economics, and history, or practical political experience, compensate for course work deficiencies in political science). Applicants are normally expected to present an undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0. In addition to transcripts and letters of recommendation specified by The Graduate School, applicants must submit a statement of academic objectives. Standardized test scores and samples of scholarly work are not required of applicants, but will be considered if submitted.
Degree Requirements
The degree requirements shall consist of at least 25 semester hours of work at the graduate level, including at least one seminar in each of three broad areas of political science — American, foreign, and theory — and at least one additional graduate seminar in political science. The other 13 hours may be distributed among other political science seminars, the master’s thesis (4 hours), and a maximum of 9 hours combined in independent study and work in cognate disciplines (but not more than 6 hours of either).
Emphasis of the political science discipline at CU-Denver is on critical perspectives, creative teaching and writing, interdisciplinary work, experiential involvement, and cooperative research projects. Close and continuing contact among students and between faculty and students is encouraged.
For further information contact 556-3556 or 556-8317.
PSYCHOLOGY
The M.A. degree in psychology at CU-Denver can be obtained with a specialty in industrial/organizational psychology, research in social-personality, psychometrics and counseling, or animal behavior. Students interested in the M.A. degree should obtain information directly from the Department of Psychology.
Requirements for Admission
Students wishing to be admitted to the M.A. program should be familiar with the Requirements for Advanced Degrees. Applicants must have a baccalaureate degree from an accredited college or university. The minimum GPA is 2.75, although a substantially higher GPA is typical of successful applicants. The GRE General Test and Subject Test in Psychology are required. In addition, the decision to admit an applicant is based on letters of recommendation, relevant work or research experience, and completion of required prerequisite courses for each specialty. Both full- and part-time students are encouraged to apply.
Degree Requirements
Students are required to complete 24 semester hours of course work and either a thesis or an internship in an approved agency setting.
Further information can be obtained from the Department of Psychology, 556-8565.
SOCIAL SCIENCE, MASTER OF
The Master of Social Science (M.S.S.) graduate degree program is designed to meet the needs of those individuals who want the flexibility to construct their own individualized course of studies. It is especially oriented toward interdisciplinary, urban, social action-focused education in the social sciences. The M.S.S. program offers broad training in the social sciences. It does not equip students with clinical skills utilized in psychotherapy.
The program can provide (1) training for advancement in the profession of education, business, the helping professions, politics, and public service; (2) a basis for further graduate studies in a specific social science discipline or professional field; (3) a means for teachers and other working students to tailor degree programs to fit their personal career development or on-the-job needs; and (4) a non traditional option for adults re-entering the University to pursue liberal education goals in the social sciences.
It is a 36-hour program, a significant part of which may include a work related project or internship. There are both thesis and nonthesis options. "There are seven participating disciplines — anthropology, economics, geography, history, political science, psychology, and sociology — but some work may also be done in other disciplines, e.g., education, urban studies, communication, etc.


The Graduate School / 97
Students applying for admission to the M.S. program should present at least 18 hours of undergraduate or previous graduate work in social science. Deficiencies may be made up at CU-Denver by enrolling in social science courses as a non-degree student. Applicants are normally expected to present an undergraduate GPA of at least 3.0.

THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT DENVER: AN URBAN UNIVERSITY CAMPUS The University of Colorado at Denver (CU-Denver) is one of four campuses of the University of Colorado. The urban, nonresi dential campus is located in downtown Denver and is easily accessible to commuters. It is close to major business and govern ment offices in downtown Denver , as well as to civic and cultural centers . CU Denver is one of the largest state-supported institu tions of higher education in Colorado , with an average of 11, 000 students enrolled during a semester . Many students work fuU time or part time while pursuing degrees because of the availability of part-time education. The CU-Denver Administration Building is located at 1100 Fourteenth Street, although several of the administrative offices are located at 1250 14th Street , one block north. CU-Denver shares library , laboratory, classroom, and recreation facilities with the Community College of Denver and Metropolitan State College on the Auraria Higher Education Center campus. A new building for CU-Denver , located on the Auraria campus , is planned for completion in 1988. Academic Programs CU-Denver is committed to meeting the needs of the metropol itan 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 CU-Denver can earn under graduate degrees in some 45 fields and graduate degrees in some 57 fields. The colleges and schools are: College of Business and Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration College of Design and Planning School of Educatio n CoUege of Engineering and Applied Science College of Liberal Arts and Sciences College of Music The Graduate School Graduate School of Public Affairs CUDenver has kept pace with demand for education which leads to improved professional opportunity in the Information Age . Many programs emphasize practical business world applica tions, and all CU-Denver students are given the opportunity to attain computer literacy. Specific computer-oriented academic programs are offered in the Computer Science (Engineering), Applied Mathematics (Liberal Arts and Sciences), and Informa tion Systems (Business) programs. The undergraduate colleges admit freshman and transfer stu dents 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 pre-profes sional 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 mas ter ' 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 co urse work for the Ph.D. can be completed at Denver, and the research adviser may be a member of the CU-Denver faculty. The College of Design and Planning, the Graduate School of Business Admin istration , 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 CU-Denver, see the Degree Programs at a Glance chart at the beginning of this bulletin. The college and sc hool sections of this bulletin describe specific policies on requirements for graduation , course requirements for various majors, course load policies, and simi lar information . Course offerings appear in a separate section of this bulletin. Students Highly motivated people from all walks of life make up CUDenver ' s student body. The diversity of backgrounds, interests, occupations , and ages stimulates a unique learning experience for the men and women enrolled at CU-Denver . Students range in age from I 6 to 70. Approximately two-thirds of the st udent s hold full-time jobs and 70 per cent are enro lled 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 As one of four campuses of the University of Colorado, CUDenver has a special role and mission in Colorado higher educa tion. The University was founded in Boulder in 1876, and the

8 I University of Colorado at Denver University of Colorado at Boulder now serves about 22,000 stu dents enrolled in undergraduate, graduate , and professional pro grams. The Health Sciences Center in D enver provides education and training to medical, dental, nursing , and allied health person nel. The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs serves mor e than 5,500 studen ts in the Pikes Peak region, offering under graduate , graduate, and professional programs. CU-Denver 's spe cial role within the University syste m is to provide urban-ori ented educational programs for students in the Denver metropolitan area. Emphasis is on profes sio nal and pre-professional training. CU-Denver st udents have access to the library resources of all campuses and cultural events s ponsor ed within the University system. The official transcript of any student who first e nrolled in the spring semester 1978 or afterwards and who graduates from an undergraduat e program at CU-Denver will indicate that the degree was conferre d at D enver. Faculty and Accreditation More than 280 highly qualified faculty members tea ch full time at CU-Denver ; 83 percent have doctoral degrees. The faculty i alert to the challenges of the urban environment and respon sive to the needs of the co mmuter student. CU-Denver is accredited by or holds membership in the following organizations: ACCREDITATION North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools Accrediting Commission on Education for H ealt h Services Administration American Society of Landscape Architects The College of Design and Planning is recognized b y the American Planning Association National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education National Architectural Accrediting Board See the College of Engineering and Applied Science section of this bulletin for the progr ams accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engi neering and Technology National Association of Schools of Music National Association of Schools of Public Affairs and Administration MEMBERSHIP Association of Urban Universities American Assembly of Collegiate S chools of Bus ine ss Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture and Collegiate Schools of Planning Council of University In stitutes for Urban Affairs American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education Auraria Higher Education Center Th e Aura ria Higher Education Center is the site for the Univer sity of Colorado at Denv er, Metropolitan State College, and the Community College of Denver. Th e three institutions share library, classroom , and related facilities on the Auraria campus, a 171-acre site in downtown Denver. Certain cou r ses and programs are cooperatively offered. On the Auraria campus are administrative and classroom buildings, the Auraria Library, the student ce nter , book center, child care and developm ent centers, physical education facilities , science building, and service buildings. The new buildings share the campus with reminders of Den ver 's past historic Ninth Street Park , restored church buildings, and the Tivoli brewery built in 1882. The Tivoli has been n ewly renovated into a complex containing specia lty shops, restaurants, and e nt ertainment. Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity/Title IX CU-Denver follows a policy of equal opportunity in e ducation and in employ ment. In pursuance of this policy , no Denver cam pus 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 prospec tive students or employees. The institution's educational program s, activities, and services offered to students and/or emp loye es are administered on a non discriminatory basis subject to the provisions of the Titles VI and VII of the Civil Right s Act of 1964 , Title IX of the Education Amendm ents of 1972 , 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 , Vietnam-Era Veteran s Readjustment Act of 1974, and Age Dis crimination in Employment Act of 1967 . A CU-Denver Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity program has been establis hed to implement this policy. For information about these provisions on eq uity, discrimi nation , or fairness con tact the Director of Affirmative Action , 1250 14th St., Suite 700, 556-2509. Research and Public Service R esearch projects and activities, public service, and academic programs at CU-Denver are oriented toward the need s of the urban population and enviro nment , and to concerns and issues of importan ce to Colorado and the nation . Activities in research and public service encompass both traditional and nontraditional fields of study, and focus on issues that relate to the city, state, and nation, as well as international n eeds. During 1984-85, CU-Denver faculty and staff received awards totaling $2,00 1 , 079 , for research and public service programs. A good portion of th ese dollars, from public and private sources, s upport research and public service work which is of direct ben efit to the State of Colorado. Such activities have brought CU Denver into close working relationships with representatives of city , county , and state government units , as well as many individ ual citizens. Current research activity covers such diverse areas as geo technical and micro computer engineering programs, master 's and executive master 's in health administration, environmental scie n ces, rural outreach for early childhood special ed u cation, volcanic geology of Marie Byrd Land, Antarctica, dino sa ur hab itats and biology, mathematical sciences, public affairs management research, survey of the Cuban shorefis h fauna, community leadership programs , and community development, planning , and d esign. In the College of Business, health administration faculty are actively serving on the boards of many health care providers in the community an d providing management expertise to government agencies. They are also involved in a new and innovative external degree program design ed for persons with managerial experience in health care organizations. The Executive Program in Health

16 I University of Colorado at Den ver guidelines in the curre nt Schedule of Classes. Arrangements may be made through the Bur sar ' s Office at the time of registration to defer payment of part of the charges. Specific information on deferred payment is included in the Schedul e of Classes 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 a r e included in the Schedule of Classes. A student with financia l obligations to the University will not be permitted to register for any subseq u ent term, to be graduated, or to be Listed among those receiving a degree or s pecial certificate . The only exception to this regulation involves loans and other type s of indebtedness which are due after graduation. Personal checks are accepted for any University obligation . Any student who pays with a check which is not acce ptabl e to the bank will be charged an additional serv ic e charge of $IS. AUDIT To qualify as an auditor for fall or spring semester, a student must be 21 years of age or older or approved by th e Registrar. Auditors may not b e registered for any other University of Colo rado courses during the time they are auditing and are not e ligibl e to audit courses if they are under s u spension from the University or have outstanding financial ob ligati ons to the University. The Records Office does not keep any record of courses audited; therefore, credit for the se courses cannot be esta bli shed. Auditors may attend as many courses as they wi h (exce pt those courses with l aboratories or where equipment is used), provided they have received permission from each instructor. Auditor 's cards are issued after classes b egin. This card sho uld b e presented to the instructor when requesting permission to attend a class. There is no au ditor status in summer. Auditors, wh e ther resi dent or nonresident , pay reside nt tuition for the audited courses during the fall or spring semester for class instruction and libr ary privileges only. Auditors do not receive stu dent parking privileges . Residency Classification for Tuition Purposes Tuition clas s ification is governed by CRS 23-7 -I 0 I , et. seq. ( 1973) as amended.' Institutions of high e r education are bound to the provisions of this statute and are not free to mak e excep tions to the rules set forth . The s tatute provides that an in-stat e st udent i s one who ha s been a legal domiciliary of Colorado for one year or more immediately preceding the beginning of the term for which th e in-s tat e classification is so ught. Persons over 22 years of age or who are emancipated establish their own l egal domicile. Thos e who are under 22 years of age and unemancipated assume th e domicile of their parent or co urt appointed legal guardian . An unemancipated minor 's parent must , therefore, hav e a legal domicile in Col orado for one year or more befor e the minor ma y be classifi e d as an in state student for tuition purposes . Domicile i s es tabli shed whe n one ha s a perman e nt plac e of habitation in Col orado and the int ention of making Colorado one ' s true, fixed, and permanent h ome and plac e of habitation . The tuition stat ute places the burden of esta blishing a Colorado domicil e on the person seeking to establish domicile. The ques tion of intent is one of documentable fact and needs to be manifest by substantia l connections with the state sufficient to evidence such intent. Legal domicile in Colorado begins the day s ub se quent connect ion s with Colorado are made s ufficient to evidence one's int ent. The most common ties with the state are (I) change of driver 's license to Colorado; (2) change of automobile registra tion to Colorado; (3) Colorado voter registration; (4) permanent employment in Colorado; (S) and most important , payment of sta t e income taxes as a resident by one whose income is s ufficient 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 shou ld also: 1. Pay the ownership tax on Colorado lic ense plates. They should not take th e 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 (w hich begins when the legal domicile is es tabli shed) must be over by the first day of classes for the term in question. If one's 12-month waiting period expires during a sem ester, in-state tuition cannot be granted until th e next semester. Once the st ud ent's tuitio n classification is established, it r e main s unchanged unless satisfactory information to the con trary i s presented . A stude nt who, due to s ub sequent events, becomes eligi ble for a change in classification from resident to nonre s ident or vice versa must inform the Office of Admissions and R ecords within IS days after such a change occurs. An ad ult student or emancipated minor who moves outside of Colorado must send written notification to the Office of Admissions and Records within IS days of the change . Once a st ud en t i s classified as non-resident for tuition pur poses, the st udent must petition the Office of Admissions and Records for a change in classification. Petitions must be submit ted no later than two weeks b efore the first day of classes of the term for whic h the student wishes to b e classified as a non resident so that the classification will be determined prior to registration and payment of fees. It is preferred for petitions to be receiv e d 30 days prior to the term. Late petitions will not be co n sidered until the next semester. Specific information may be obtained from the Offi ce of Admissions and Records. Ill.

All stu d e nt s shou l d cons id e r trans portation and persona l expenditures (i.e., clothing, entertain ment , etc.) in determi nin g their expe n ses. The Office of Financi a l Aid / Stud ent Emp loym e nt establis h es standard budgets for dif fere nt types of students (dependent st ud ents living at hom e with p a r e nts, s in gle st ud e nt s liv ing away from h ome , married s tud ents, etc . ) to bring about co n sistency and equity in determining the financial n eeds of all st ud ents. The sta nd ard budgets are estab lis hed in lin e with parameters set by t h e Colorado Comm i ssion on Hi g h er Educ atio n and th e U . S . Department of Education . For th e 1985-86 academic year the s t a nd ard budgets allowed $245 per month living allowance for dependent students living at home , $545 per month for single students not living at hom e, and $8 1 2 p er month for m arried studen ts. An allowance of $148 per mont h was added per d ependent chil d in the student's hom e . The living all owance includ ed amounts for rent , food , utiliti es, per so nal expenses , and transportation. The approximate full-time cost of tuition , fees , an d medical expe n ses for the 1985-86 aca demic year was $1,168 for a resident s tud ent and $4, 662 for a nonresident st udent. Graduate stu dents were assessed $ 1 , 142 as resi dent s and $4,896 as nonresidents. B ooks and su ppli es were esti m ated at $35 0 for t h e 1985-86 academic year. All ex p enses will increase slig htl y for the 1986 87 academic year. Th e State of Co lor a d o and the Board of Regents u sually se t tuition guid elines an d rates during t h e month of jun e for the summ er and academic year . The stan d a rd s for living allowances are usually set during th e spring semes t er for the following sum mer a nd academic year. Students who have additional cos t s above the s tandard allowa n ces can request a review of their s itu ation by the Financi al Aid Committee . The co mmittee must receive docume ntati on of extra ex p enses and ca n consider an ind i vidual exce ption to the standard allowances. Examples of t h ese kinds of exce ption s are babys ittin g expe n ses, a nd medic al, d e ntal , and optical expenses. Determination of Financial Need and Award Financi a l need is defined as the differenc e b etwee n the cost of atten d a n ce as defined b y the institution (tuition and fees, book s and s uppli es , room and b oard, transportation and essent ial inci denta l expenses) and to tal resources available to the student . These resour ces include a family contribution (summer savings , term ea rnings, a s pou se contribution , a nd a parenta l co n tribu tion) a nd awards from agencies outside the University . Financial need is determin ed by a natio nal uniform needs analy sis system administered by agencies s uch as the American College Testing Program. Thi s system analyzes income and assets , family size, number of children in po s t-secondary educatio n , student independence, etc., to determin e a reasonable stud e nt and /or fami l y co nt ribution. After the financial ne e d is determined a nd complete application materia l s h ave b een received , students are ranked in order of fina n cial ne ed and are aided according l y until all funds are com mitted. The financial aid pack age normally co n sists of a se l f-help General Informatio n I 17 co mp onent (loans and /or emp l oyment) and a gift aid compone nt (grants) proportionate to the available funds and to th e number of n ee d y students a pplying. A s mall porti o n of Colorado work-study funds is available to in tereste d s tudent s w,ho do not document financial need . ' How to Apply Application forms may be obtained b y contac ting th e Office of Financial Aid / Stud e nt Employment. Students are asked to com plete an institutional application and a n ee d a n a lysi s form . The application inclu des a checkl i st of other required do c um ents to be s ubmitt ed. P arents are ex p ected to con t r ibut e toward a st ud e nt 's educa tional costs . However , in ce rtain cases students may be consi d ere d financially i nd e p endent of their parents. To b e eligible for financial aid as a self-supporti ng s tud e nt , a st ud e nt ( 1 ) cannot b e claimed as a tax exemption, (2) ca nnot receive $75 0 or more , or (3) cannot live at hom e for more than six weeks for th e year aid i s received and for the entire preceding calendar year. For example, for a student to receive aid as a self-s upp orting st ud e nt during the 198687 academic year , the a b ove thr ee criter i a mu st b e met for 1 985 and 1986. Note: Requirements for recei ving aid as a self-supporting stu dent a r e subjec t t o c hange by the federal and state governments . Self-supporting st ud ents must document t h eir stat u s by provid ing income tax forms or other s upportin g documents to show s uffici ent income to be se lf-supporting during the a ppr opriate p er iod of time.

Withdrawals following the tenth week of the semester are permitted only for circum stances clearly beyond the student's control. Appeal Procedure Students should contact a business adviser in the College of Business and Administration office for appeal and petition pro cedures pertaining to rules and regulations of the College. SPECIFIC UNDERGRADUATE A CADEMI C POLICIES Standards o f P erformance Students are held to basic standards of performance estab lished for their classes with respect to attendance, active partici pation in course work, promptness in completion of assignments, correct English usage both in writing and in speech, accuracy in calculations, and general quality of scholastic workmanship. In general, examinations are required in all courses and for all students , including graduating seniors . To be in good standing , students must have an overall grade po i nt average of not l ess than 2 . 0 (C = 2.0) for all course work attempted and a 2.0 average for all business courses attempted. This applies to work taken at all University campuses. Activity physical education and remedial courses are not included in the overall average. When semester grades become available, students below stan dard will be notified of (1) probationary status or (2) suspension. Students are responsible for being aware of their academic standing at all times, and late grades and /or notification do not waive this responsibility. College rules governing probation and suspension are as follows: 1 . Any student whose overall grade average , or business course average , is less than 2.0 will be placed on probation immediately . A student may be removed from probation when the overall average and the business average have been raised to 2 . 0. 2. 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 (includ ing 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 \vith the requirements of his/her probation will be subject to permanent suspension. 5.

36 I University of Colorado at Denver 6. Any student earning aU failing grades or no academic credit for the semester will not be permitted to register without the approval of a business adviser. 7. Official combined degree students are required to maintain the same standards of performance as College of Business stu dents in order to be continued in the combined business program. Scholastic load The normal scholastic load of an undergraduate business stu dent is 15 semester hours, with a maximum of 18 hours during the fall/spring semesters and 12 hours during summer terms. A max imum of 3 hours can be taken during the interim/vacation ses sion. 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 grad ing system and pass/fail policy. Plus/Minus Grading. College of Business faculty have the option to use plus/minus grading effective with the Spring 1984 Semester. For example, B + corresponds to 3.3 credit points (for each semester hour), B-corresponds to 2.7 credit points. 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 deter mination must be made within the posted deadline and is irrever sible. A maximum of 6 hours pass/fail may be taken in any one semester. Repeating Courses. A failed course (grade of F) may be repeated, but the Fwill be included in the grade-point average and will appear on the transcript. A course in which a grade of D-or better is obtained may not be repeated without written approval from a business adviser. Courses repeated without an adviser's approval may not be computed in the grade-point average calcula tion. 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. AlifF 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 consid ered only in cases of documented clerical errors and must be approved by the 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 Univer sity. Only work from regionally accredited institutions will trans fer 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, stu dents 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 voca tional work does not transfer. Business courses from junior col leges will not be applied toward degree requirements if the course work is offered at the junior-senior level at CU-Denver. 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 Cor 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 .

program should follow 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 . The M.B.A. program specifically is designed so that all required courses cover the material needed for completion of the degree . There are no prerequisites needed to enter the M.B.A. program , and there is every reason to believe that students with non business backgrounds have equal chance for success. Applicants for the M.S. degree, however, may be required to take prerequisite courses, depending on the individual's academic and professional background. For more detailed information, contact the graduate student adviser. General Information Master's Programs Advising. As soon as possible after admission, students should schedule an appointment with a graduate adviser to discuss gen eral degree requirements and transfer credits. Master of Science students should consult with the adviser to determine any back ground course work that may be required. All graduate students need to prepare a formal degree plan during their first tem1 in residence. This plan, with appropriate signatures, will 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. Because so many CU-Denver students work full or part time, there are many opportunities to attend classes on a part-time basis and at times convenient to individuals' work schedules. Contact the graduate student adviser for more detailed information on degree plan schedules. Minimum Hours Required. A candidate for a M.B.A. degree must complete a minimum of 48 semester hours of graduate work. A candidate for a Master of Science in business must complete a minimum of 30 semester hours of graduate work plus any required business background courses. 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 Admin istration 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 and April. Graduation. Students must file an Application for Admission to Candidacy and Diploma Card with the Graduate School of Business Administration prior to registering for the term in which they intend to graduate. Plus/Minus Grading. College of Business faculty have the option to use plus/minus grading effective with the Spring 1984 Semester. For example, B + corresponds to 3.3 credit points (for each semester hour), B-corresponds to 2.7 credit points. Minimum Grade-Point Average. A minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0 must be achieved in approved courses taken for a graduate business degree after the student's admission to a graduate business program. Courses taken as a non-degree student normally are not included in the grade-point average. If the student's cumulative grade-point average falls below 3.0, the student will be placed on academic probation and given two College of Business and Administration I 45 regular semesters in which to achieve the required 3.0 cumulative average. Failure to achieve the required average within the alloted 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. Incomplete Grades . The only incomplete grade given in the College is !F. 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 !F. AlifF 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 consid ered only in cases of documented clerical errors and must be approved by the dean. Time Limit. All graduate courses. including the Master of Science comprehensive final examination, must be completed within five years. Courses completed earlier will not be accepted for the degree unless validated by a special examination. Candi dates 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 skills required for competent and responsible administration. The administra tion of an enterprise is viewed in its entirety and within its social, political, and economic environment. The candidate for the M.B.A. degree must complete the specific requirements of the M.B.A. curriculum (48 semester hours) as follows: Core Requirements Semester Hours BUS.

Daniel f. Schier, Acting Dean INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE The College of Design and Planning at CU-Denver 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 research service program through the Center for Community Development and Design. An undergraduate degree program, the Bachelor of Environ mental Design, is available through the University of Colorado, College of Environmental Design, in Boulder. The graduate pro grams in Denver and the undergraduate program in Boulder are in two separate colleges. Students interested in the Boulder pro gram should see the bulletin for that campus. The College of Design and Planning at CU-Denver occupies a unique place both within the nation and within the state. The College is the only location for graduate design and planning education in Colorado. The College administers an outstanding Center for Community Development and Design, offering research and technical assistance to communities accross the state. The College offers programs for two major purposes to educate men and women who can meet the complex and demand ing challenge of designing and planning the built 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 design and planning professions have broadened. The social and physical problems encountered by the architect, urban designer, landscape architect, planner, 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 Associa tion 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 Planning and Community Development Division is a recognized program and currently in the accredita tion process by the Planning Accreditation Board. In 1983, the Landscape Architecture Division received full accreditation from the Accrediting Board of the American Society of Landscape Architects. Design and Planning Library The Design and Planning Library, a branch of the Auraria Library, serves as a learning resource center in the fields of design and planning. It contains the following collections to support the curricula of the College: I. Reference collection of technical materials selected to sup port design and planning studio projects. 2. Circulating collection of material in the fields of architec ture, landscape architecture, interior design, urban design, and planning and community development. 3. Collection of planning documents issued by local, regional, state, and federal agencies with an emphasis on planning mate rials pertaining to Colorado communities and concerns. 4. Periodicals relating to design and planning. 5. Reserve collection providing resource materials for required and supplemental class reading. 6. Growing non print media collection which includes architec tural slides and microcomputer software. In addition, the Auraria Library houses background and research materials of interest to design and planning students and faculty, including materials in the arts, humanities , social sci ences, and engineering. The Design and Planning library is open 71 hours per week, including evenings and Sundays. The staff consists of a librarian, library assistant, and several student assistants. The library provides a number of services including reference and research assistance and library-use instruction. Additional services, such as interlibrary loan and computer-assisted research, are provided through the Auraria Library. Computer-Aided Instruction The College established a computer-aided instruction labora tory 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 engi neering, 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,

PAGE 54

portfolios, and in learning multi-media techniques for presenta tions. The model shop is available for use in fabricating architec tural 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 con tinuing 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 Assista11ce, and Federal National Direct Student Loans (NDSL) are available through the Office of Financial Aid, University of Colorado at Denver, 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 pennitted 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 sus pended. After a period of one year, appeal for readmission may be made by petitioning the Scholastic Deficiency Committee of the College or the director. Non-degree Students Beginning with Fall1981 , the College of Design and Planning accepts only up to 16 credit hours of courses taken as a graduate non-degree 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 Falll981, students in two-year programs must complete all work required for a graduate degree within a fiveyear 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 rwo degree programs, both of which lead to the Master of Architecture . The three-year pro gram leads to the first professional degree for architectural prac tice; the one-year program leads to a post professional degree. The three-year program is open to holders of the bachelor's degree outside the field of architecture and typically requires 96 credit hours for completion. Admission with advanced standing to the three-year program is open to holders of the Bachelor of Environmental Design or College of Design and Planning I 51 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 one-year program is open only to applicants already hold ing 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, urban design, or in architecture with an energy specialization. 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 pro grams, 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 con cerns of utilities, heating, lighting, and acoustics. Professional courses provide exposure to the workings of contemporary prac tice , and an internship in a practicing professional's office is a course option in the final year. Admission An Admissions Committee will review the application mate rials and select students to be admitted to programs.

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 con centrated 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 Archi tecture 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 meth odologies. 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 pro cesses associated with mixed use complexes, neighborhood, activity center, village, town, mainstreet , and cityscape projects . Specific courses in urban technologies, urban theories, envi ronmental impact analysis, including social and economic plan ning factors, are available. Admission In order for students to be considered for admission into the Master of Architecture in Urban Design program , they must submit application forms, college transcripts , three letters of recommendation, statement of purpose, and a portfolio of aca demic and professional work by March IS preceding the fall semester they wish to enter. For foreign students who are consid ering a second professional degree, the College has begun a policy of admitting students coming directly from overseas into the spring semester only. Applications for all programs must be received by March 15 of the preceding year. AU other application requirements must be met. All portfolio materials submitted with the application must be in 8 W' by 14" format or smaller. If slides are included , they must be in a loose-leaf slide holder. It is recommended that students indicate the type and length of all work experience they have had since receiving a degree. Applica tion forms and information may be obtained by writing to the Director of Master of Architecture in Urban Design , College of Design and Planning, University of Colorado at Denver, llOO 14th Street, Denver , CO 80202 . Options Two sequences are available in the program. The one-year postprofessional program is for students who have obtained a College of Design and Planning I 53 five-year Bachelor of Architecture degree. The other is a Main streets 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 stud ies from the community , which require anticipatory and feasi bility 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 institu tions 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 .

MASTER OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE The Master of Landscape Architecture (M.L.A.) degree pro gram at the University of Colorado at Denver is fully accreclited 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 stu dents 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 prob lem-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

PAGE 59

56 I University of Colorado at Denver these related earth sciences provide a regional concept for design ing 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 curricu lum, which would give the student the equivalent of a related professional minor. The electives are included in the hour require ments for both the twoand 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 two courses: Landscape Architecture Thesis Research, and Landscape Architecture The sis. The thesis may be a design, research, natural resource, com munity development, or historic 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 land scape 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 interdisciplinary projects involving the other Col lege of Design and Planning programs in Architecture, Planning and Community Development, Interior Design, and Architecture in Urban Design. Additionally, through the Center for Com munity 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 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, environ mental design, or other physical design degrees are considered for admission upon individual evaluation of their undergraduate cur riculum, scholastic perfom1ance, and professional experience. To be considered for admission into the graduate programs in land scape architecture, applicants must submit application forms, a $20 application fee, official college transcripts, three letters of recommendation, statement of purpose, and a portfolio of aca demic 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.

management, social services, environmental administration and assessment, policy analysis, energy development, natural resources, land development, private planning consultation, cor porate 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, CU Denver planning students are often able to combine learning general principles and skills in the classroom with practical work ing 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. Thirty-six of these semester hours are required core courses aimed at training the student in basic planning purpo ses, principles, content, research methods, techniques and implemen tation. Of these required credits, 3 are spent in experiential learn ing and internships with public agencies and other organizations. Three plan-making 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 24 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 elctives, from other programs in the College of Design and Planning, or from other graduate schools at CU Denver and the metro area. The division has organized the follow ing optional areas of specialization: Community and Economic Development Energy, Natural Resources, and Environmental Planning Land Use Planning, Transportation, and Physical Design Planning and Community Development Administration Regional Analysis, Planning, and Administration Small Town and Neighborhood Planning Social Planning and Human Services Admission Application forms must be submitted by March 15 for the fall semester. On a space available basis, applications are accepted for individual semesters. The deadlines in these cases are: July I 0 for fall, December 10 for spring, and April15 for summer. Applica tions for admission are reviewed by a Faculty-Student Committee. Criteria for admission include academic performance, work expe rience, 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 Den ver, 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 College of Design and Planning I 57 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, neigh borhoods, 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 (CCDD) is the public service outreach component of the University of Colorado at Denver, College of Design and Planning. Utilizing the unique resources of the College, the CCDD coordinates faculty, staff, and students in providing community development, plan ning, design education, research, and technical assistance to neighborhoods and small towns throughout Colorado that cannot afford or do not have access to these services. Annually, the Center assists as many as 75 different communities and urban neighborhoods and small towns throughout Colorado on 200 discrete projects involving over 200 students and three dozen faculty and staff. The Center's work focuses on three interrelated programmatic elements: to provide educationally oriented public service by being responsive to community requests for assistance; to improve students' educational experiences by the application of theoretical concepts and methodological skills learned in the classroom through professionally supervised field work; and, to advance the state of knowledge of communities and the design and planning fields through research on the requested projects. Students in the College of Design and Planning have several alternatives to work on Center projects: through required or elective courses, for thesis, through paid internships especially in the summer, or compete for the Mark Murphy Internship , a twelve month paid position to work in small town planning while enrolled in the Master in Planning and Community Developm ent Program. The service, education, and research programs of the CCDD are integrated and delivered through a system of community and neighborhood development offices; in Denver, the North Denver Workshop, the Westside Neighborhood Design Center, and the Northeast Denver Neighborhood Development Center; in Colo rado Springs, the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs CCDD office; and in Grand Junction, the Rural Community Assistance Center. The Center also has cooperative agreements to provide needed assistance through the community education and assistance offices in five western Colorado institutions of higher education. The Center enjoys an excellent national and growing interna tional reputation for responsive service to communities, as well as for the development of innovative approaches to field-based edu cation and applied research.

William F. Grady, Dean INFORMATION ABOUT THE SCHOOL The University of Colorado at Denver is fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. The Teacher Education Program is fully accredited by the Colo rado State Board of Education and the a tiona! Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education. The Teacher Certification Program is designed to prepare ele mentary and secondary teachers for urban school settings through academic work, professional studies, classroom teaching experi ences, and community field experiences. Teacher Certification Progams are available at CU-Denver in: Elementary Education (Kindergarten-6th grade) Secondary Education (7th-12th grade) (English, German, French, Spanish, Mathematics, Science , Social Studies) CU-Denver offers a Teacher Certification Program for senior level students who are earning B.A. degrees in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences , and students who have previously earned a B.A., B.S., or advanced degree, but who do not have teaching certificates. All course work is at the graduate level. TEACHER CERTIFICATION PROGRAMS ELEMENTARY EDUCATION The faculty of the School of Education at CU-Denver advocates that the most appropriate education for a professional educator is based upon the liberal arts tradition. They also believe that prepa ration for the teacher of young children must be conceptualized differently from the preparation for the subject specialist in the secondary school. The teacher in the elementary school is truly a generalist and must be aware of the basic structure of a wide variety of disciplines. Students who seek elementary certification and do not have a baccalaureate degree should obtain a B.A. from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences ( CLAS) in a major of their choice . Some certification courses are accepted by CLAS. These courses may be taken in the senior year . Specific information can be obtained from the advisers in CLAS. Requirements General Education I. B.A. or B.S. degree from an accredited institution of higher education. 2 . Course work must include arts and humanities, science, mathematics, social science, health and physical education . If students do not have a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution, they must be enrolled in a program leading to a B.A. degree in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.

Paul E. Bartlett, Resident Dean 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 oppor tunities 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 varia tions 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 exam inations 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 per mitted the industry to enter also the fields of urban mass transit , undersea exploration, bio-engineering, 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 engi neering, environmental engineering , or structural engineering. Chemical engineers convert natural resources into industrial and consumer products in facilities that include refineries and gasiftcation 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 , aque ducts, and other structures; in transportation systems including highway s , canals, pipelines, airports, rapid transit lines, railroads, and harbor facilities ; in the transmission of water and the regula tion 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 con cerned 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 micro processors 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 develop ment 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 gov ernment; 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 com puter systems; electromagnetic fields, which are basic to radio, television , and related systems; communication theory and signal 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 engineer ing 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.

PAGE 64

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 Undergraduate Degree Programs The College of Engineering at the University of Colorado offers the following engineering bachelor degree programs through departments located on three campuses-Boulder, Denver, and Colorado Springs. Aerospace Engineering Sciences (Boulder) Applied Mathematics (Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs) Architectural Engineering (Boulder) Chemical Engineering (Boulder) Civil Engineering (Denver and Boulder) Computer Science (Denver, Boulder and Colorado Springs) Electrical Engineering (Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs) Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (Boulder) Engineering Physics (Boulder) Mechanical Engineering (Denver and Boulder) The College of Engineering and Applied Science at CU-Denver offers four-year programs leading to the B.S. degree in civil engi neering, 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 Accredita tion Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) . Availability of Degree Programs -CU-Denver The University of Colorado at Denver will accept for matricula tion only those prospective engineering students who designate a degree program awarded by the CU-Denver College of Engineer ing and Applied Science. For 1986-87 , the following engineering degrees are awarded by CU-Denver: 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 case s, the University campus acc e pting the stu dent may grant permission to take courses on another CU cam pus , 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 o f study leading to th e master ' s degree is strongly urged for qualified students of more than usual ability who feel the y can profit from additional study. College of Engineering and Applied Science I 61 At CU-Denver it is also possible for a student to obtain a bachelor's degree in engineering and a bachelor's degree in busi ness in five years plus one or two summer terms. Any of the engineering degree programs can be modified for an excellent premedical program. A second bachelor's degree may be of interest to some students. lf liberal arts students elect certain courses in science, mathe matics, 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 CU-Denver offers graduate degree programs in civil engineer ing, computer science, electrical engineering , mechanical engi neering, 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 CU-Denver Office of Admissions and Records for the Schedule of Summer Classes. For some students there are advantages in starting their college careers during the summer term. Most required freshman and sophomore courses are normally offered at CUDenver 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. Applications are available in October or November for the follow ing academic year. A limited number of partial tuition scholarships are available for new engineering freshman and transfer students. The applica tion deadlines for these scholarships are July IS for the Fall Semester and December 15 for the Spring Semester. Contact the dean ' s office , UA 516. Student Organizations A general student organization , known a s the Associated Engi neeting 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 CU-Denver : American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) Society of Women Engineer s (SWE) These soci e ties meet frequently to present papers , speakers , films, and other programs of technical interest.

62 I University of Colorado at Denver 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. CU-Denver currently offers the following programs: civil engineering, computer science, electrical engi neering, mechanical engineering, and applied mathematics. Per sons 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 engi neering 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 mathe matics are at the Auratia 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 representa tion, simple systems of equations, complex numbers, the bi nomial theorem, arithmetic and geometric progressions, log arithms, 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.

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. Transfer Students Students transferring from other accredited collegiate institu tions will 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 enter ing the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Intrauniversity transfers, within the same campus of the Uni versity, to the College of Engineering and Applied Science will be considered on an individual basis if both of the following condi tions are fulfilled: I. 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: l. 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 2.0 cumulative grade-point average for all courses attempted, for all courses taken from the student's major department, and for all courses that count toward graduation 1 Applicants not meeting thes e requirements will be considered on an indiYidual basis. A st udent who is not prepared should expect to make up deficiencies. 2 A 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 equiYalent to 180 actual periods per unit. Fractional credits of value less than one-half unit will not be accepted. 1\ot 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 sc hool 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 thai have descriptive geometry features may be considered for elective units beyond the recommended units .

requirements. If not an engineering student, the student's aca demic 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 require ments listed above. Some course sequences should be completed before transfer ring 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 Engineer ing 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 subse quent courses . NONTRANSFERABLE CREDITS Students desiring to transfer credits from engineering tech nology 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: College of Engineering and Applied Science I 63 Courses on basic subjects such as mathematics, physics, liter ature, 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 engi neering courses have these options: I. 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. 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 examina tion of the department involved or by College Entrance Examina tion Board ( CEEB) tests. If the applicant has scored 4 or 5 on the CEEB Advanced Placement Examination , credit toward gradua tion may be awarded. Students who have scored 3 may be consid ered 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. Stu dents 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 trans fer by submitting a Change of Major for Undergraduate Degree

(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 examina tions, 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 depart ment. 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 Pro gram in the General Information section of this bulletin.) ( CLEP general examinations are not acceptable.) Counseling Freshman students are counse led by the resident dean ' s office and by representatives from each academic department. These representatives are readily available to assist students with aca demic, vocational, or personal concerns. Students are assigned specific departmental advisers for aca demic planning and should contact the departmental office for advising appointments. Course Load Policy Full-time Students. Undergraduate students employed Jess 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 I 0 or more hours per week are as follows: Employed 40 or more lwurs per weektwo courses (maximum of 9 semester hours! Employed 30 hours per week-three courses (maximum of 12 semester hours) Employed 20 hours per week -four courses (maximum of 15 semester hours) Employed 10 hours per weekfive courses (maximum of 18 semester hours) Freshman Year Fundamentals taught in the freshman year are of p1ime impor tance 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 Cor better. Students must repeat a course in which a grade of 0 was earned if that course is a prerequisite to another course. 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 Cooper ative 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 of2.0 or better, in hours attempted at the University of Colorado, in those courses 1 equired toward graduation require ments, and in all courses taken from the student's major depart ment in order 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 Jack of progress toward the Bachelor of Science degree in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Students whose average falls below 2.0 in any of the three categories listed above will be placed on probation for the next semester in which they are 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 indefi nitely 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 readmis sion 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 correspon dence 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 suspen sion, 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 nonnalload, i.e., 12 hours or more (for a full-time student) of

PAGE 68

courses counting toward graduation requirements. Physical edu cation courses do not count; if the student has previously com pleted 6 hours of ROTC courses, ROTC courses do not count; if the required hours of social-humanistic subjects have been com pleted, 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 examina tions, 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 CU-Denver there is a code of Student Standards of Conduct. A copy of the code and information regarding all student griev ance procedures may be obtained in the Student Academic Ser vices 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 /fail information and drop / add procedures. Also see the cur rent Schedule of Classes. GRADING SYSTEM It is particularly important to note that in the College of Engi neering and Applied Science courses to be counted toward fulfill ing the graduation requirements cannot be taken no credit (NC). INCOMPLETES An incomplete may be given by the instructor for circum stances beyond the student ' s control, such as a documented medi cal 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 or 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 . College of Engineering and Applied Science I 65 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 upper division social-humanistic elective courses without serious risk to their academic records. In general pass/fail should be limited to 300or 400-level courses. Students must process the pass/fail form during the first two weeks of the semester . Engi neering 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 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 cir cumstances 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 depart ment 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

PAGE 69

66 I University of Colorado at Denver Honors and Recognition Committee) will be awarded at gradua tion. 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 and some departments may specify particular courses that must be taken. 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, elemen tary 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 are encouraged 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 College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. 2. A sequence of seven Great Books courses. This series, chron ologically 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, Introduc tion to Poetry and Drama, focus on methodology more than the Great Books sequence, dealing with analyses of literary forms and structures. Students must 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 completion of their junior 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 Enginee1ing 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 departmental 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-engineering pro gram 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, for all required courses, and for all courses taken from the student ' s major department. A department may require 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. Incomp/etes 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-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 pre viously 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 Col lege 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 engi neering 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 busi ness 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.

PAGE 70

It is also possible for qualified graduates (GPA : 3.0or better) to complete the requirements for a master ' s degree in business within one year after receiving the baccalaureate degree in engi neering . 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 . engi neering curricula , the degree program of the Graduate School of Business Administration, and the Master of Science or the Master of Engineeling degree program in th e student ' s own engineering discipline. The required nonbusiness courses are listed in the College of Business and Administration section of this bulletin.

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 sub jects 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. College of Engineering and Applied Science I 67 Premedicine Option A professional school in a field such as medicine requires a student to have a college education prior to pursuing its profes sional courses. In practically all cases, medical students are uni versity 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 equip ment , most of it electronic , is being developed to assist the medi cal practitioner in treatment of patients . Bio-engineering, engineering systems analysis, probability, and communication theory are highly applicable to medical problems. Improved com munication 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 tech niques, 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 com pleted 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.

To prepare for a career in medicine in the College of Engineer ing 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 prospec tive 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 CU-Denver 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 CU-Den ver 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

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 tele vised courses. The Master of Engineering degree permits graduate students more flexibility in defining specialized interdisciplinary fields that meet their professional needs. This degree has stan dards 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. Socio 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 profi ciency 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 lib eral 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 th e 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 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. Sen iors in engineering who have such intentions and appear likely to qualify for admission to graduate study in business may be permit ted 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 depart ment at the Boulder campus. The primary objective of the aerospace engineering sciences curriculum is to provide sound general training in subjects funda mental to the practice of and research in this branch of engineer ing 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 envi ronment; 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 CU-Denver. 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. Curriculum for B.S.

Sherrilllll , Coordinator The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences offers all courses in mathematics , both required and elective , for und e rgraduate 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 depart ment. In Option II, the student takes distributed course work in engineering departments, including a solid grounding in mechan ics, circuits, and materials. Option III is a joint mathematics computer science program. Regardless of the option cho s en , 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 i s so dependent on advanced mathematical concepts that applied mathematician s 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 numer ical methods and 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 consider taking a foreign language. Some 300and 400-level language courses may be counted a s Socio-humanistic e lectives . Under all circum stance s, a student must plan a complete program and obtain the approval of a departmental adviser at the beginning of the soph omore year . The B.S. degree in applied mathematics requires the comple tion 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 Cor better in all mathematics courses . Course work in College of Engineering and Applied Science I 69 the Socio-humanistic elective area must be approved by the stu dent 's adviser and should include 6 semester hours of upper division (junior or senior) level courses.

Hubly, Coordinator Admission to this program must be approved by the depart ment 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. [t 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 prod ucts and to preserve environmental values. Thus, chemical engineering continually changes and pro gresses. The Department of Chemical Engineering at the Boulder campus therefore helps students to prepare to be imme diately 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 spar kle and interplay of new ideas and new technologies. The complete chemical engineering program is not available at CU-Denver. 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 Boul der. Also, students must arrange to take Ch.E. 212 (Chemical College of Engineering and Applied Science I 71 Engineering Material and Energy Balances) concurrently in Boul der 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. Curriculum for B.S.

72 I University of Colorado at Denver CIVIL ENGINEERING William C. Hughes, Chairman Civil engineering is generally the broadest field of engineering studied in American universitie s today. Civil engineering offers an interesting and highly challenging career to the student interested in the design and construction of buildings, bridges, dams, aque ducts, 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 gener ation, 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 educa tional background for many fields of endeavor. The curriculum is designed to give the student a broad knowl edge of the basic engineering sciences of chemistry, mathematics (including differential equations), physics, mechanics (including fluid mechanics and soil mechanics), electrical circuits, and ther modynamics. In addition, it includes 18-24 semester hours in Socio-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 stu dent 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.

Civil engineering electives shall be chosen to form an integrated pro gram using a course list approved by the Department of Civil Engineering. ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND COMPUTER SCIENCE John R. Clark, Chainuan Computer Science Program The goal of the computer scierice program is to educate men and women to take professional places in the burgeoning com puter industry at any level accessible to a bachelor ' s degree candi date 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 sev eral 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 hard ware 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 (com pilers, 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 process ing, problem solving, and similar kinds of activities; an under standing 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 College of Engineering and Applied Science I 73 development of professional skill in this activity is one of the most important objectives of the program. Computer Science Curriculum The curriculum in computer science is planned to give breadth of background in computer science after establishing a soli d foundation in mathematics and science. Each student will take electives emphastzing computer-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 Progr ess 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 .

(Computer Science) 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, s tudents 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 Socio-humanistic electives, a student mus t have 6 hours of communications , a nlininlum 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 Socio humanistic elective course. Students must pass Engl. 102 with a Cor better , or must pass an equivalency test. If students pass the equivalency test, they may complete their communication requirement by taking Engl. 315 or other approved communication course . (A list of approved Socio-humanistic courses is available in the E.E./C.S. office, UA 402.) 2. Or Chern 113. 3. Area electives (18 semester hours) are to fom1 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, mathe matics, science, or business. The list of area electives must be approve d in advance by the s tudent'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, perfor mance courses , and remedial courses are not acceptable). Electrical Engineering Program The professional possibilities in electrical engineering include teaching and research in a university; research and development of new electrical or electronic devices, instruments, systems, or products; design of computers , computer interfaces, communica tions and control systems, or power systems; production and quality-control of electrical products or systems for private indus try or government; and sales or management for a private firm or branch of government. The electrical engineering course of study begins with princi ples of physics, chemistry , and mathematics and follows with an intensive training in the theory and laboratory application of logic and electrical circuits, electromagnetic and transmission theory , electrical machines and transformers, and electronics and micro processors . Throughout the entire course of study, students rein force 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 respon sibility for their future role in society. They are urged to attend meetings of their student professional society , where practicing engineers from many engineering specialties speak of their experi ences. The areas of specialization that electrical engineering students may enter upon graduation are so numerous (antennas, com munication systems , computer design, controls, digital system design , electronics, electro-optics , microwaves, power, signal processing) , it is impo s sible for the undergraduate training to cover them in detail . Intense specialization may be left to addi tional training that graduates may receive when they assume positions with industrial firms , or acquire by specialization through graduate work beyond the bachelor's degree . Undergraduate students who work and who have elected courses in their senior year that strengthen their mathematical background may decide to undertake graduate study. The curric ulum 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 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 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 has been 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 engi neering 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 Socio-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.

76 I University of Colorado at Denver Students are urged to prepare, in consultation with the depart mental 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 magne tism. 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. In order to earn a bachelor's degree in engineering physics from the Department of Physics (UCB), a student must, in addition to any other requirements, successfully complete 30 semester hours of courses on the Boulder campus, including 12 semester hours in upper division physics courses.

Required and elective engineering courses (excluding mathematics and physics) must total 22 semester hours. 3. See the E. Phys. coordinaror. 4. Beginning with the junior year, students should coordinate their progran1 with an engineering physics adviser at the Boulder campus. MECHANICAL ENGINEERING R. Wayne Adkins, Acting 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 develop ment of useful devices and processes. The mechanical engineering program may be roughly sub divided into two-year groupings. In the first two years, the pro gram emphasizes the fundamentals of those engineering sciences that are essential for an understanding of most branches of profes sional engineering. In the last two years of the program, the department provides technical electives for professional con centrations in the following areas: Thermodynamics Heat transfer Auid 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 CU-Denver. To be awarded the B.S. (M.E.) a student must achieve and maintain at least a 2.0 in all M.E. courses.

Thomas A Clark, Acting Dean INFORMATION ABOUT THE SCHOOL The Graduate School is a University-wide body which autho rizes programs within its constituent colleges and schools. At CU Denver, 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 mas ter'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 disci pline. 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 CU-Denver faculty. Some departments in which this is the case are communication, 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 CU Denver. 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 write to the Dean of The Graduate School, University of Colorado at Denver, 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202. Degrees Offered The following graduate programs are authorized for comple tion through The Graduate School at CU-Denver. In some cases, a specific required course may only be offered through the Univer sity of Colorado at Boulder in a given year. The Master of Arts (M.A.) in: Anthropology Biology Communication and theatre Economics English Geography History Mathematics Political science Psychology Sociology The Master of Education (M.Ed.) and the Master of Arts (M.A.) in: Early childhood education Educational psychology Elementary education Foundations, education Guidance and counseling Initial Certification Program (certification only or certification and M.A. in elementary or secondary education) Library media Reading Secondary education Special education The Master of Science (M.S.) in: Applied mathematics Chemistry Civil engineering Computer science Electrical cngineeting Environmental science Mechanical engineeting Technical communications The Master of Basic Science (M.B.S.)

Computing Services l11e Computing Services department supports computer use by both the academic and administrative communities at CO-Den ver. For a complete description of services offered see Special Programs and Facilities in the General Information section of this bulletin. financial Aid for Graduate Study COLORADO GRADUATE GRANT The Colorado Graduate Grant is administered by The Gradu ate School. Competition for these funds is based on demonstrated need and is open to graduate students who are residents of the State of Colorado. Grant awards are announced each semester for the following semester. Applications are available from the Office of Financial Aid. 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 1985-86 was: one-half time instructor, $8,320 for the academic year; one-half time teaching assistant, $6,656 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 nonresi dent 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 depart ments. 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 ational 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. The Graduate School I 79 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 discrimi nation because of race, color, creed, sex, age, handicap , or national origin. Students are also referred to prospective employ ers in accordance with this policy. INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION The Office of International Education expedites the exchange of students and faculty, entertains foreign visitors, promotes spe cial 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 equiv alent of two years of college-level work in the appropriate lan guage 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. The University reserves the right to deny admission to appli cants 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 : I. 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.

PAGE 83

80 I University of Colorado at Denver 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 perfor mance 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 I 0 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 addi tional 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. Upon the recommendation of the Admissions Committee and 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 Rec ord Examination and submit scores as part of the application. 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 the requirements for a bachelor ' s degree, may be admitted to The Graduate School by special permission of the dean. A University of Colorado senior enrolled in the College of Engineering and Applied Science who needs not more than 18 semester hours or 36 credit points to meet the requirements for a bachelor ' s degree may be admitted to The Graduate School , but is not eligible for financial aid , scholarships , or fellowships as a graduate student until the equivalent of the minimum require ments for the bachelor's degree have been satisfied. Application Procedures Graduate students who expect to study at CU-Denver should contact the CU-Denver Graduate School office concerning pro cedures for forwarding completed applications. An applicant for admission must present a completed Applica tion Form (Parts I and II), which may be obtained from the CU Denver 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 pro cessed 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 chairperson 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 non-degree students (below). A completed application must be in the office of the major department at least 90 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 1986-87, e.g. , fellowship, scholarship, assistantship, etc., must file a completed application with the department before the announced departmental deadline (see previou3 section on financial aid). 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 gradu ate 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 apropriate 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 i s 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 applica tions 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 documen tation, official English translation of all school records, and other documents as noted in the previous section on Application Procedures. GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATIONS At the option of any department, the Graduate Record Exam ination may be required of applicants for assistantships, 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 obtained from The Graduate School office or the CU-Denver Testing Cen ter , 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). NON-DEGREE STUDENTS A student not wishing to earn an advanced degree from the University of Colorado should apply to the Office of Admissions and Records, CU-Denver , 1100 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202. Non-degree students will be allowed to register only on the cam pus to which they have been admitted. Non-degree students desiring to pursue a graduate degree pro gram 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 accep tance 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 non-degree student at the Uni versity , or both . In addition , the department may recommend to the graduate dean the acceptance of credit for courses taken as a non-degree 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 The Graduate School I 81 study in The Graduate School are required to complete appropri ate 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 CU-Denver 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 Classes). 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, CU-Denver, stating the exceptional circumstances which justify the change. This letter, endorsed by the instructor of the course, must accompany the properly signed and completed drop / add card or no-credit option form. Withdrawal A graduate student who desires to withdraw from the Univer sity must apply to the dean of The Graduate School for permis sion 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. lne final grade will be withheld until the thesis or report is completed. lf 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 dUJing 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 course 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 lnfonnation section of this bulletin. A graduate student may

PAGE 85

82 I University of Colorado at Denver contact the 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 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 CU-Denver is 10 hours per 10-week summer term. A graduate student may contact the dean's office for information on the appeal process regarding an overload. UNIVERSITY EMPlOYEES Full-time employees of the University may not undertake more than 6 credit hours per semester. Part-time employees, including assistants, may take such work as is approved by the major department. TUITION AND FEES The schedule of tuition and fees is given in the General Infor mation section of this bulletin. REQUIREMENTS FOR ADVANCED DEGREES Quality of Graduate Work Although the work for advance 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 expect to obtain all the training, knowledge, and grasp of ideas necessary to meet the requirements for an advanced degree from formal courses. They should work on their own initiative, reading widely and thoughtfully, reaching their own conclusions, and acquiring a sense of values, perspective , 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 Grad uate 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 credits points for each credit hour. BGood, 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 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 the course once, upon written recommenda tion to the dean by the chairman of the student's advisory commit tee 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 under graduate or as a non-degree 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

PAGE 86

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 undergradu ate 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. Students planning to graduate should ascertain current dead lines of The Graduate School. It is the graduate student's and the department ' s responsibility to see that all requirements and dead lines are met (i.e., changing of /W grades, notifying The Graduate School of final examinations, etc.). Departments or program committees may have additional deadlines which must be met by graduate students in that depart ment or program. It is the student's responsibility to ascertain such requirements and to meet them as designated by the depart ment or program chairman. 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 1: 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 Il 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 that are listed at the 500 level or above and that are offered by those colleges or schools that arc members of The Graduate School, or which have other wise 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 197 5 and thereafter will have graduate rank if they are taught by members of The Gradu ate 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 an y 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. The Graduate School I 83 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 Univer sity 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 modem languages as each department requires. See special departmental requirements . 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 con c erned and approved by the dean of The Graduate School.

For more information contact The Graduate School office. To be eligible for courses to be considered for transfer, a student must have an overall B average in all courses taken at the Univer sity of Colorado in The Graduate School. Continuing Education Course Work Students may use the resources of the Division of Continuing Education in the pursuit of graduate study only if they obtain proper academic approval from the major department and the graduate dean in advance. 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 regis tered within the time designated at the beginning of a semester and must carry the equivalent of not fewer tha
