Message from the Chancellor
Dear Student:
Welcome to the University of Colorado at Denver.
This will be an exciting year. We continue to redefine CU-Denver as an urban university, one with stronger linkages to the greater Denver region and the world.
On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students, I offer to you the challenging environment of learning at one of Colorado’s premier institutions of higher education.
Your decision to attend CU-Denver shows your willingness to learn at Denver’s only urban public university.
CU-Denver is one of the four campuses of the University of Colorado system. As a vital part of that system, offering baccalaureate, master’s, and doctoral programs, we have achieved distinction nationally and internationally because of the high quality of our programs, faculty, and alumni. Located in downtown Denver, the University challenges its students both academically and personally in an intellectual environment that encourages commitment, curiosity, and imagination.
A distinguishing characteristic of CU-Denver is the urban perspective that is an integral theme in our academic programming, the orientation of our faculty, and the identity of our student body. Our enrollment has grown to nearly 11,000 students.
The University offers some 40 degree and degree option programs at the baccalaureate level and over 60 degree and degree option programs at the post-baccalaureate level designed to provide you with a foundation on which to build your intellectual, aesthetic, and moral capacities as individuals and as citizens. Components of this educational experience include student involvement in independent study, research, and the creative process as a complement to classroom study. The University’s seven academic areas (Arts and Media, Business, Public Affairs, Liberal Arts and Sciences, Engineering and Applied Science, Education, and Architecture and Planning) provide instruction and research programs that focus on the fundamental areas of knowledge, including interdisciplinary and professional study. We are committed to making available to you the opportunities for gaining knowledge, training, skills, and credentials which will enhance your economic and personal lives.
We at the CU-Denver campus take great pride in the diversity of our students and our ability to serve their varied needs.
This is reflected in a commitment to an enriched baccalaureate education and the real-world research aspects of graduate and professional work. Our academic programs focus on applications relevant to regional as well as national issues and also seek to provide a humanistic understanding of social needs and problems. Our continuing expansion of international programs is designed to serve the career needs of a variety of students.
We look forward to working with you as you join our community of scholars and dedicated staff. We promise a rich intellectual environment and a challenging educational experience. Most of all, I look forward to seeing you at graduation and awarding you the CU-Denver degree.
My best wishes to you in all your future endeavors.

The University of Colorado seal, adopted in 1908, depicts a male Greek classical figure seated against a pillar and holding a scroll. A burning torch framed in laurel is placed beside him. The Greek inscription means “Let your light shine!’ According to Denver designer Henry Reed, the classical design was used because Greek civilization “stands as the criterion of culture.” The laurel symbolizes honor or success, the youth of the figure suggests the “morning of life, ” and the scroll represents written language.

General Information
The University of Colorado at Denver is one of four institutions in the University of Colorado system and the only public university in the Denver metropolitan area. It is an urban, non-residential campus located in downtown Denver.
CU-Denver offers 36 undergraduate degrees and 43 master’s degrees. Ph.D. degrees are offered in public affairs, applied mathematics, health and behavioral sciences, civil engineering, and educational leadership. Classes are offered during weekday and evening hours, on weekends, and at off-campus sites.
Students’ ages range between 17 and 75. The average student age is 30. Eighty percent are employed and 53 percent attend part-time. Forty-four percent of the nearly 11,000 students are enrolled in graduate level courses.
CU-Denver’s faculty actively promote the special role of an urban institution in meeting the needs of students. They are alert to the challenges and opportunities of the urban environment and responsive to the needs of students and the community. The combination of CU-Denver’s talented faculty and highly motivated students creates a vital and exciting educational environment. Students are offered the unique educational opportunity to combine real world experience with academic excellence.
History
In 1876, just over a century ago, the University of Colorado was founded in Boulder. In 1912, the University of Colorado’s Department of Correspondence and Extension was established in Denver to meet the needs of the burgeoning population. As the breadth of course offerings expanded, so did the demand for degreegranting status. The Denver Extension Center was renamed the University of Colorado-Denver Center in 1965, and by 1969, 23 fields of undergraduate study and 11 of graduate study were offered. In 1972, the Colorado General Assembly appropriated support to build the Auraria Campus, CU-Denver’s current site. The same year, the Denver “Center” was renamed University of Colorado at Denver. Two years later the University of Colorado was reorganized into four campuses-
Denver, Colorado Springs, Health Sciences (Denver), and Boulder.
University of Colorado System
As one of four campuses of the University of Colorado system, CU-Denver has a special role and mission in Colorado higher education. The University of Colorado at Boulder now serves about 25,000 students enrolled in undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs. The Health Sciences Center in Denver provides education and training to medical, dental, nursing, pharmacy, and allied health personnel. The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs serves more than 5,800 students in the Pikes Peak region, offering undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs. CU-Denver’s role within the University system is primarily to address the needs for undergraduate, graduate, and professional instruction in the Denver metropolitan area. Emphasis is given to professional, preprofessional, and liberal arts training in the context of a strong multidisciplinary and applied agenda for research and creative activities. CU-Denver students have access to the library resources of all campuses and cultural and athletic events sponsored within the University system.
Academic Structure
Each of the four campuses of the University of Colorado System - Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs, and Health Sciences in Denver - has its own chancellor and campus administration. The chancellors, in turn, report to the president of the CU System. The Board of Regents of the University of Colorado approves the overall direction provided by the president of the system. The system president is both the chief academic and chief administrative officer of the University. The president has responsibility for the administration of the entire University under the policies described by the Board of Regents or under law.
The Chancellor of CU-Denver represents CU-Denver and manages campus goalsetting, policy development, academic affairs, and budget and financial matters.
The Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs and the Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance assist the Chancellor. Each vice chancellor is responsible for the essential components of the campus enterprise. The Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs is responsible for all academic programs, academic support programs, student enrollment services, the Graduate Programs, and Sponsored Programs. The Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance is responsible for the campus budget; Office of Financial and Business Services; Human Resources; Computing, Information and Network Services; Planning and Institutional Research; and Voice Communications. The CU-Denver Graduate Programs are governed by the CU system-wide Graduate School. All graduate units reside within the Graduate School except Architecture and Planning, Business, and the professional programs in Public Affairs.
Academic Programs
CU-Denver is, above all, devoted to the needs of the citizens of Denver and the region. With the national recognition earned by its graduate faculty, it is not surprising that an increasing number of advanced students from across the nation and overseas elect to pursue their studies here. CU-Denver is composed of seven distinct academic units:
College of Architecture and Planning College of Business and Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration School of Education College of Engineering and Applied Science
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences College of Arts and Media Graduate School of Public Affairs
These units now employ 350 regular, full-time faculty members. The diversity of the student body is a source of deep pride. Classes include traditional students who have elected to pursue college degrees immediately after high school, transfer students, older students who have delayed college entry, and professionals who seek to strengthen their

base of skills or broaden their appreciation of the world around them.
The undergraduate colleges of business, engineering, and liberal arts and sciences admit freshman and transfer students and offer programs leading to the baccalaureate degree in the arts, sciences, humanities, business, engineering, and music. A solid foundation of academic skills and general education is assured through a comprehensive core curriculum. Students may pursue graduate education through all of the campus’ colleges and schools. Pre-professional training in the fields of education, law, journalism, and the health careers are also available.
The colleges and schools sections of this catalog provide a complete listing of bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, policies on requirements for graduation, course requirements for various majors, course load policies, course descriptions, and similar information.
CU-Denver has kept pace with the demand for education which leads to improved professional opportunity in the “Information Age." Many programs emphasize practical business world applications, and specific computer-oriented academic programs are offered in the computer science (engineering), applied mathematics (liberal arts and sciences), and information systems (business) programs.
The University of Colorado at Denver
The University of Colorado at Denver is committed to becoming the nation’s premier Urban University. In urban environments, universities have a particular responsibility to adapt their traditional roles in the development, assessment, transmission, and preservation of knowledge to urban needs while maintaining the highest standards of education and scholarship. CU-Denver views its location as a fertile ground for advancing and disseminating knowledge, and treats its role and mission as a covenant with the people and institutions of the urban community.
As an urban institution, CU-Denver sees its boundaries as flexible and permeable, with knowledge flowing to and from the institution and the community. Its view is global rather than parochial as it seeks to link teaching, research, and service to urban issues and needs of the state, the nation, and the world.
By drawing upon the riches of its traditional store of learning and disciplined thought, the University will serve as Denver’s intellectual center and as a community resource ready to respond to the enormous urban challenges and opportunities facing its local and global environment.

Auraria Higher Education Center
The Auraria Higher Education Center is the site for the University of Colorado at Denver, Metropolitan State College of Denver, and the Community College of Denver. The three institutions share a library (which is administered by CU-Denver), classrooms, and related facilities on the 171-acre Auraria campus. Certain courses and programs are cooperatively offered.
On the Auraria campus are administrative and classroom buildings, the Auraria Library, the student union, book center, child care and development centers, physical education facilities, science building, and service buildings.
The new buildings share the campus with the reminders of Denver’s past-historic Ninth Street Park, restored church buildings, and the Tivoli Brewery, built in 1882. The Tivoli, renovated into a complex containing specialty shops, restaurants, and entertainment, has recently become the campus student union.
Research and Other Creative Pursuits
CU-Denver is strongly committed to the pursuit of new knowledge through the research and creative efforts of its faculty. Research and creative activities not only advance knowledge and enhance the quality of life, but also strengthen teaching by grounding instruction in scholarship and professional practice.
In addition, these activities constitute an important component of CU-Denver’s service to the community at large. Therefore, externally funded projects are a major priority at CU-Denver.
Research projects, training, and public service programs at CU-Denver encompass both traditional and nontraditional fields of study with a focus on issues that relate to city, state, national, and international issues. During 1996-97, CU-Denver faculty and staff received external grants and contracts totaling $12,614,634 for research, training, and public service programs. The benefits for the campus in the years ahead will be substantial. Externally funded activities assist in sustaining scholarly discourse, enable faculty members to engage in the advancement of knowledge, provide the foundation for solving pressing practical problems of vital concern to society, and enhance the education of students. Many students actively participate in projects overseen by faculty members.
An important aspect of research and other creative activities at CU-Denver is their multidisciplinary and applied nature. Research in every school and college at CU-Denver addresses questions of great significance for the welfare of Denver and the larger region. Its role within a thriving metropolitan area also serves as a base for exploring topics of national and even international import. But not all research at CU-Denver yields solutions of immediate practical significance. Exploration of topics on the cutting edge of the basic disciplines is carried out within the rich dialogue of scholarship that knows no national boundaries. This exploration may yield insights that eventually open the way to practical applications in the next century.
Current externally funded research efforts address a variety of contemporary economic, political, educational, engineering, mathematical, scientific, and environmental needs. Financial support has been obtained for program and service development in the areas of computational mathematics, early childhood and


Undergraduate Admissions / 9
special education, health administration, international affairs, internships and cooperative education, and employment and training institutes.
Other projects include statewide investigations of economic development, welfare reform, air quality, and transportation. Computer-related projects include artificial intelligence, multilevel algorithms, fast parallel processing, competitive graphs, and modeling. Research projects range from investigations of dinosaur tracksites to neurotoxicology and water transportation.
In addition, a great deal of research at the University is conducted without substantial external support. This research also yields important insights that are conveyed to a national audience through faculty publications, presentations, exhibits, performances, and professional activities. Many members of the faculty are leaders within the national scholarly community. All these pursuits bring recognition to the University, establish the credibility of its faculty, and enhance the value of the degrees it confers.
UNDERGRADUATE
ADMISSIONS
CU-Denver seeks to identify applicants who are likely to complete an academic program of study successfully. Admission decisions are based on many factors, the most important being:
1. Level of previous academic performance;
2. Evidence of academic ability and accomplishment as indicated by scores on national aptitude tests; and
3. Evidence of maturity, motivation, and potential for academic success. CU-Denver may deny admission to
new applicants or readmission to former students whose credentials indicate an inability to assume obligations of performance and behavior deemed essential by the University.
After completing the application process, official notification of one’s admissions status as an undergraduate, graduate, or non-degree student is provided by the Office of Admissions. Letters from various schools and colleges indicating acceptance into a particular program are pending, subject to official notification of admission to the institution by the Admissions office.
Students who are admitted pending receipt of additional documents or with unofficial documents will be permitted one term to submit the documents. If temporarily waived official documents
are not received by the end of the initial term of attendance, registration for subsequent terms will be denied. If at any time additional credentials are received which affect the student’s qualifications, the University reserves the right to change the admission decision.
Applicants who have not decided upon a major field of study will be considered for admission to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences as undetermined majors. Students admitted as undetermined majors should declare a major as quickly as possible and no later than the end of their sophomore year.
All questions and correspondence regarding admission to CU-Denver and requests for application forms should be directed to:
Office of Admissions University of Colorado at Denver Campus Box 167, P.0. Box 173364 Denver, CO 80217-3364 (303) 556-3287
Admission Deadlines
The University may change document/ credential deadlines in accordance with enrollment demands. For the best scholarship and registration time considerations, applicants should apply and be admitted as early as possible. For an applicant to be considered for a specific term, all documents required for admission must be received in the Office of Admissions by the deadline for that term. Applicants who are unable to meet the deadline may elect to be considered for a later term. Transfer students are reminded that they should allow sufficient time to have transcripts sent from institutions they have previously attended. International students are advised that it usually takes 60 days for credentials to reach the Office of Admissions from international locations. Advance planning and early application is necessary for the timely admission of international students.

Minimum Academic Preparation Standards (MAPS)
Students entering the University of Colorado who graduated from high school in 1988 or later are required to meet the following Minimum Academic Preparation Standards: 4 years of English (with emphasis on composition), 3 years of
college preparatory mathematics (excluding business and consumer mathematics), 3 years of natural science,
2 years of social science (including one year of U.S. or world history), 3 years of a single foreign language, and 1 year of the arts.
Students with MAPS deficiencies may be admitted to the University provided they meet the other admission standards (e.g., test scores, rank in high school class, grade-point average) and provided they make up any deficiencies in the MAPS prior to graduation from the University. Two levels of deficiency will be recognized.
1. One unit of deficiency will be allowed provided the student meets other admission standards and provided the student makes up the deficiency before graduation from the University. Courses taken to make up a deficiency will count toward graduation, provided the CU-Denver college accepts those course credits toward graduation.
2. A student having more than one unit of deficiency may be admitted, provided that the student meets other standards of the University. The student must make up additional deficiencies before graduation by taking an expanded program of studies. The student may satisfy the MAPS requirements by successful completion of:
1) Courses taken at CU;
2) Courses taken at other institutions of higher education;
3) Additional high school credits;
4) Credit-by-examination programs; or
5) Other requirements as approved by each CU-Denver college.
Admission Requirements for Freshmen
Freshman admission standards define the level of success and achievement necessary to be admitted to the University of Colorado and include factors that predict academic success, such as scores on the ACT or SAT, high school course work, and the grade-point average. Both the subjects the student has studied and how the student has performed will be factors that determine admission to the University.
New freshmen may apply for admission to the Colleges of Arts and Media, Business and Administration, Engineering and Applied Science, or Liberal Arts and Sciences.
The applicant must be a high school graduate or have been awarded a High School Equivalency Certificate by


10 / General Information
completing the General Education Development (GED) Test.
Preference for admission is given to applicants who rank in the top 30% of their high school graduating class and present a composite score of 21 or higher on the American College Test (ACT), or a combined score of 950 or higher on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).
Business applicants will receive priority consideration if they graduated in the top 25% of their high school class and achieved a composite score of at least 26 on the ACT or 1100 on the SAT. Applicants who do not meet the admission requirements for direct admission to the College of Business will be automatically considered for admission as pre-business majors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Engineering applicants will receive priority consideration if they graduated in the top 20% of their high school class and achieved a composite score of at least 26 on the ACT, with 28 on the mathematics section, or 1100 total on the SAT, with 600 on the mathematics section. Applicants who do not meet the admissions requirements for direct admission to the College of Engineering will be automatically considered for admission as a pre-engineering major in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
New freshmen seeking admission to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) and College of Arts and Media must meet College requirements for MAPS instituted by the University of Colorado. Applicants are required to satisfy 16 units of high school level courses in English, foreign language, mathematics, sciences, humanities, and social sciences. Students are eligible for admission to the Colleges with up to two units of deficiency in a foreign language and no more than one additional deficiency in the remaining areas.

HOW TO APPLY
1. Students should obtain an application for undergraduate admission from a Colorado high school counselor or from the CU-Denver Office of Admissions.
2. The application must be completed and sent to the Office of Admissions with a $40 (subject to change) non-refundable fee. For applicants who are granted admission but are unable to enroll for that term, the $40 application fee will remain valid for 12 months, provided the Office of Admissions is informed
of the intent to enroll for a later term.
3. Students are required to have their high school send an official transcript of their high school grades, including class rank, to the Office of Admissions. Official transcripts are those sent by the issuing institution directly to:
Office of Admissions University of Colorado at Denver Campus Box 167, P.O. Box 173364 Denver, CO 80217-3364 Hand 4. Students who did not graduate from high school are required to have a copy of their GED test scores and GED certificate sent directly from the certifying agency to the CU-Denver Office of Admissions (see Admissions Requirements for Non-High School Graduates).

Princeton, New Jersey 08541-6201 (609) 771-7600
6. International students must submit proof of proficiency in the English language (see Requirements for International Students).
APPLICANTS NOT GRANTED ADMISSION
An applicant who is not granted admission as an entering freshman may wish to consider transferring to the University after successful study elsewhere. The Office of Admissions urges such students to complete at least one full semester (12-15 credit hours) of college-level course work at another college or university, giving special attention to courses that will provide sound academic preparation for future transfer to CU-Denver. These courses should include any Minimum Academic Preparation Standards (MAPS) not met in high school (see the MAPS requirements).
Students who are not admissible will be encouraged to participate in a Redirect Program that CU-Denver has established with community colleges.
All credentials presented for admission become the property of the University of Colorado and must remain on file.
Students who knowingly falsify transcripts or test scores or who fail to indicate all previously attended institutions will be denied admission
to, or will be disenrolled from, the University.
Admission Requirements for Non-High School Graduates
An individual who has not graduated but has passed the General Education Development (GED) test may be considered for admission. The application for undergraduate admission must be accompanied by a $40 non-refundable application fee and an official transcript showing completed high school courses. An applicant must also submit GED scores and scores from either the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) or the American College Test (ACT) Program.
The admission decision is based on the student’s potential for academic success at CU-Denver.
Admission Requirements for Transfer Students
Applicants are considered transfer students for admission purposes if they have completed at least 12 semester hours of college course work since graduating from high school. Applicants are not considered transfer students if the only college-level classes they have taken were before high school graduation.
Any applicant not eligible to return to all institutions previously attended will be refused admission. To meet the minimum transfer admission standards at CU-Denver, students must meet one of the following conditions:
1. Have earned 12-29 collegiate semester credit hours and have the following grade-point average:
a. 2.5 GPA (on a 4.0 scale); or
b. 2.0 GPA if transferring from Colorado School of Mines, Colorado State University, University of Colorado
at Boulder, or University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.
2. Have earned 30 or more collegiate semester hours with a 2.0 GPA.
Transfer students are given priority
consideration for admission as follows:
1. College of Business and Administration. To be considered for transfer admission, students must have completed at least 24 semester hours which will apply to the degree, Bachelor of Science (Business Administration). Priority consideration for admission will be granted to transfer applicants with a minimum cumulative overall GPA of 3.0 for all work applicable to a B.S. in Business Administration degree, including a minimum 2.0 GPA in business courses.
Students may also be admitted if they have a 3.0 GPA in the last 24 semester hours of applicable course work, a 2.0 GPA in business courses, and at least a 2.0 overall cumulative GPA in courses applicable to a B.S. in Business Administration degree.
Transfer applicants who do not meet either of the priority admission standards are pooled and ranked on the basis of their GPA earned in the last 24 hours. Pooled applicants are offered admission as space is available, or are referred to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for admission consideration, where they will be advised as pre-business majors.
Applicants with at least a 2.6 GPA in applicable course work in the last 24 semester hours will be considered as space is available. Students with less than a 2.6 GPA in the last 24 semester hours of applicable course work will be referred to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for admission consideration, where they will be advised as pre-business majors.
2. College of Engineering and Applied Science. Applicants to the College
of Engineering should have at least a 2.75 cumulative grade-point average for all math and science course work attempted, at least 24 hours of college course work including two semesters each of calculus and physics.
3. College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Transfer applicants must have at least a 2.0 cumulative college grade-point average for all work attempted. Course work in progress cannot be used in calculating the cumulative average.
4. College of Arts and Media. Transfer applicants must have at least a 2.0 cumulative college grade-point average for all work attempted. Course work in progress cannot be used in calculating the cumulative average. Music major applicants (except those entering the Music Industry Studies program) also must pass an audition. Contact the Department of Performing Arts for audition information, (303) 556-4652. Important Note: Applicants who do not meet the above grade-point average
or credit hour requirements will 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;

Undergraduate Admissions / 13
3) Age, maturity, and noncollegiate achievements; and
4) Time elapsed since last attendance at previous colleges.
HOW TO APPLY
1. The student should obtain an application for undergraduate admission from the CU-Denver Office of Admissions.
2. The application form must be completed and returned with the required $40 (subject to change) non-refundable application fee.
3. The student is required to have two official transcripts sent to the Office of Admissions from each collegiate institution attended. Official transcripts are those sent by the issuing institution directly to:
Office of Admissions University of Colorado at Denver Campus Box 167, P.O. Box 173364 Denver, CO 80217-3364 Hand If a student is currently enrolled at another institution, an incomplete 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 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.
Engineering and Business applicants with fewer than 24 semester hours also must submit high school transcripts and ACT/SAT scores.
All credentials presented for admission become the property of the University of Colorado and must remain on file.
Students who knowingly falsify transcripts or test scores or who fail to indicate all previously attended institutions will be denied admission to, or will be disenrolled from, the University.
TRANSFER OF COLLEGE-LEVEL CREDIT
Course work taken at any regionally-accredited institution of higher education will be considered for transfer to CU-Denver. Courses are considered for transfer on the basis of having similar content to those offered by CU-Denver. General education “core” courses are usually accepted. Developmental,
remedial, vocational, technical, religious, doctrinal, orientation, independent study, special topics, and cooperative education courses are not accepted. Only courses in which a grade of C-or better was earned are considered for transfer. Courses in which a grade of Pass (P) was earned are considered for transfer only if a grade of Pass at the sending institution is defined as a C- or better. Students wishing to appeal transfer credit decisions should contact their CU-Denver academic department.
After all official transcripts have been received and the student is admitted as a degree student, the Office of Admissions will prepare a transfer credit report indicating which courses have been accepted in transfer by CU-Denver. A copy of this report is mailed to the student as well as to the student’s academic department at CU-Denver. Upon receipt of this transfer credit report, students should contact their academic department to meet with an advisor, who will determine how transferred credit applies to specific CU-Denver degree requirements.
The Office of Admissions considers course work for transfer regardless of the age of the academic credit. Individual departments, however, may have specific guidelines and policies about age of credit and make the final decision about application of credit toward a degree program. Students are expected to have current working knowledge of prerequisite courses, regardless of when prerequisite courses were taken. Students who have transferred extension or correspondence course work should contact their academic departments regarding credit hour limits in these areas.
The College of Business and Administration generally limits its transfer of business course credits to those business courses which are offered as lower-division courses at CU-Denver. Students who have taken upper-division business courses from an American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accredited College of Business may request review of these courses for possible transfer by contacting the College of Business advising office.
All courses taken in the business area of emphasis must be completed at CU-Denver.
The College of Engineering and Applied Science, in general, requires that engineering course transfer credit must come from an Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) accredited engineering program to be acceptable for degree purposes.
Engineering technology courses are not considered equivalent to engineering courses.
A maximum of 72 semester hours is acceptable in transfer to CU-Denver from community colleges. Students who completed the Colorado Community College Core Curriculum program, and whose transcripts contain the statement “core curriculum completed,” may transfer this core curriculum as a package and receive credit for the lower-division component of CU-Denver’s core curriculum. The College of Business and the College of Engineering have specific courses required of all students which may be taken as part of, or in addition to, the community college core curriculum.
A Comprehensive Guide to Student Transfer document containing Colorado community college advising plans and admission information is available from the CU-Denver Office of Admissions. In addition, a CU-Denver admissions representative keeps regular office hours at Denver metropolitan area community colleges to assist students with planning a transfer program. Representatives also visit other Colorado community colleges. Call the CU-Denver Successful Transitions Coordinator at (303) 556-4950 for additional information.
See Transfer Credit Equivalency Chart on preceding page.
OTHER TRANSFER CREDIT
Credit granted through programs listed below appears on the CU-Denver transcript. The academic department determines how this credit applies to degree requirements.
Accelerated Baccalaureate Program (CAB)
The CAB (Curriculum for an Accelerated Baccalaureate) program is a unique partnership between CU-Denver and select high schools which enables students to accelerate their progress toward a college degree. Students from participating high schools can earn up to 30 hours of CU-Denver core curriculum course credits while in high school by: 1) taking regular college courses in the high school, taught by CU-Denver faculty or college-qualified high school faculty, through the CU Succeed program; 2) concurrently enrolling in designated courses on the CU-Denver campus; and/or 3) obtaining acceptable scores on the Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate (higher and subsidiary levels) examinations. Students can begin work on college courses leading to a baccalaureate degree


14 / General Information
from CU-Denver’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and College of Arts and Media beginning in their junior year of high school.
Advanced Placement Program
The Advanced Placement (AP) 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 4 or 5 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. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences also grants AP credit for scores of 3 plus a course grade of A- in corresponding subject. For more information, contact your high school counselor or the Office of Admissions at CU-Denver.
College-Level Examination Program
Incoming CU-Denver students may earn University credit by examination in subject areas in which they have demonstrated 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.
Students who are interested in how CLEP examination credit applies to the CU-Denver degree requirements should contact their academic advisor.
International Baccalaureate Diploma Program
Entering students may receive college credit from the International Baccalaureate Diploma Program available at select high schools. The International Baccalaureate (IB) program is a rigorous, pre-university course of study emphasizing liberal arts from an international perspective. In general, students may receive college credit for higher level and standard level course subjects in which a minimum examination score of 4 (out of 7) is achieved. Students with IB high school credit should contact the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Advising Office, NC 2024, (303) 556-2555, for advising on course-specific credit for IB course work.
Military Service and Schooling
To have credit for educational experience 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 Educational Experience During Military Service. USAF personnel may present two official transcripts from the Community College of the Air Force in lieu of 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 non-business 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.
Intra-University Transfer
CU-Denver students may change colleges or schools within CU-Denver provided they are accepted by the college or school to which they wish to transfer. CU-Denver Intra-University Transfer forms may be obtained from the Records Office. Students should observe application deadlines indicated in the current Schedule of Courses. Decisions on intrauniversity transfers are made by the college or school to which the student wishes to transfer.
Division of Extended Studies students wishing to enroll in regular CU-Denver courses or degree programs should
contact the Office of Admissions for a degree application.
Readmission Requirements for Former Students
CU-Denver students who have not registered and attended classes at CU-Denver for one year or longer, and who have not attended another institution since CU, are returning students and must formally apply for readmission. An additional application fee is required only if you are changing from undergraduate to graduate or non-degree to degree status. Application forms are available at the Office of Admissions.
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 deadlines for receipt of documents. This requires payment of the $40 (subject to change) non-refundable application fee and submission of two official transcripts from all colleges and universities previously attended. Transcripts must be sent directly from the issuing institution to:
Office of Admissions
University of Colorado at Denver
Campus Box 167, P. 0. Box 173364
Denver, CO 80217-3364
Students who last attended another CU campus must formally apply for readmission. An application fee is not required unless you are going from undergraduate to graduate or from non-degree to degree status. Application forms are available from the Office of Admissions.
Admission for Non-Degree Students
Persons who have reached the age of twenty and 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 provided they are eligible to return to all collegiate institutions previously attended. Correspondence and questions regarding admission as a non-degree student should be directed to the Office of Admissions. Those seeking admission as non-degree students for the purpose of teacher licensure should contact the School of Education, (303) 556-2717.
Each school/college limits the number of semester hours taken as a non-degree student that may be transferred to a degree program.


Graduate Programs / 15
Students considering changing from non-degree to degree status should contact the school/college to which they will be applying (as a degree student) for information about the number of hours that may be taken as a non-degree student.
Courses taken for credit as a nondegree student can be used for transfer to other institutions or for professional development.
Note: International students are not admitted as non-degree students, except for summer sessions. They must hold a valid student visa.
Students with a baccalaureate degree who are not accepted to specific degree programs may enroll for course work as non-degree students. They must complete a non-degree application for admission. Students in a non-degree status who have a previous degree pay graduate tuition rates.
To apply for admission as a non-degree student, obtain a Non-degree Student Application form from the Office of Admissions. Return the completed application by the deadline for the term desired. A $25 (subject to change) non-refundable application fee is required. No additional credentials are required. Applicants who seek teacher licensure 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.
Continuation as a non-degree student with no prior undergraduate degree is contingent upon maintaining an overall grade-point average of 2.0 upon completion of 12 or more semester hours.
Non-degree students may apply for admission to an undergraduate degree program by following the instructions outlined on the application for degree admission form. They should contact their academic advisor regarding the process of transferring credit from non-degree to degree status.
Admission for Students Seeking a Second Undergraduate Degree
Students who already hold a bachelor’s degree may apply for admission to a program in which they can earn a second undergraduate degree. Applicants for a second undergraduate degree must meet CU-Denver admissions standards. These students may apply to the College of
Engineering and Applied Science or the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Persons who already hold an undergraduate degree in any discipline generally may not apply for a second undergraduate degree in business. Rather, they should apply to a graduate M.B.A. or M.S. business program. Contact the Graduate School of Business at (303) 556-5900. Education is a graduate program. Interested students should contact the School of Education office for information, (303) 556-2717.
HOW TO APPLY
1. Obtain an application for undergraduate admission from the Office of Admissions.
2. Complete the application and send it to the Office of Admissions with a $40 (subject to change) non-refundable application fee.
3. Have two official transcripts sent to the Office of Admissions from each collegiate institution attended. Official transcripts are those sent by the issuing institution directly to:
Office of Admissions University of Colorado at Denver Campus Box 167, P.O. Box 173364 Denver, CO 80217-3364 Hand Transcripts from the institution where the first undergraduate degree was earned must have final grades posted for the semester that the student graduated and have the official notation of the degree awarded.
All credentials presented for admission become the property of the University of Colorado and must remain on file. Students who do not declare all previously attended institutions are subject to disciplinary action and/or dismissal.
Students who knowingly falsify transcripts or test scores will be denied admission to, or will be disenrolled from, the University.
High School Concurrent Enrollment
High school juniors and seniors with demonstrated academic abilities may be admitted to CU-Denver with special approval for one term only. This approval may be renewed. Credit for courses taken may subsequently be applied toward a University degree program.

1. Hold a bachelor’s degree or master’s degree from an accredited college or university or demonstrate the completion of work equivalent to that required of these degrees as specified at CU-Denver.
2. For the master’s degree, have earned a cumulative undergraduate grade-point average (GPA) of 2.75 or better (3.0 for applicants in the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences)
on a scale where A is equal to 4.0.
Note, however, that applicants who cannot meet this undergraduate standard may still secure regular admission if they have completed 24 semester hours of relevant graduate course work with at least a 3.25 grade-point average.
3. For the Ph.D. degree, have earned a cumulative GPA of 3.0.
4. Meet the specific requirements as established by the program faculty.
A senior at this University who has satisfied the undergraduate residence requirements, and who needs not more than 6 semester hours of advanced subject and 12 credit points to meet the requirements for a bachelor’s degree, may be admitted to the Graduate
Programs by special permission of the school or college 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 Programs.
Seniors at this University may, however, transfer a limited amount of advanced resident work (up to 9 semester hours), provided such work:
is completed with distinction in the senior year at this University;
comes within the five-year time limit;
is completed with a final grade no lower than a C;
has not been applied toward another degree; and
is recommended for transfer by the department concerned and approved by the dean of the school or college.
Seniors will not be 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.
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. A department may admit provisional students for a probationary term which may not exceed two consecutive calendar years. 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.
According to the terms of their provisional admission, provisional degree students are required to maintain a 3.0 grade-point average or higher each semester or summer session 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.
APPLICATION PROCEDURES
Graduate students who expect to study at CU-Denver should contact the Office of Admissions concerning procedures for forwarding completed applications.
Once a student has decided to apply for a graduate program, a completed application must be in the office of the


Graduate Programs /17
major department or in the Office of Admissions before the deadline date.
An applicant for admission must present:
1. Parts I and II of the CU-Denver Graduate School Application Form, including the Tuition Classification Form,which may be obtained from your departmental program coordinator.
2. Two official transcripts for all academic work in colleges and universities completed to date.
3. Three letters of reference. Please have nominators include applicant’s name and social security number in their letter of reference.
4. A nonrefundable application fee (check or money order) of $50 (international student application fee is $60). No application will be processed until
this fee is paid.
5. Any other material required specifically by the program faculty. This may include scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or other examination. Check with program coordinators in the departments for additional information that may be required.
When a prospective degree student applies for admission, the chairperson or a student admissions committee of the department will decide whether the applicant shall be admitted and make that decision known to the Office of Admissions, which will inform the student.
A completed application and application fee must be in the office of the major department at least 90 days prior to the semester for which admission is sought, or earlier as may be required by the major department. Note: Students who wish to apply for a graduate student award (e.g., fellowship, scholarship, assistantship) should contact their department before the application deadline date for information, since deadlines are usually earlier for aid requests.
Re-Admission of Former and Suspended Students
Students who were previously admitted to a graduate degree program, but did not complete that degree program, and have not been registered for one to three years at the University must:
1. Clarify their status with the department or school/college to determine their eligibility to return and pursue the same degree.
2. Submit a new application Part I, after receiving departmental approval,
to the Office of Admissions before departmental deadlines have passed
for the term in which they expect to return to the University. A $50 application fee is required. Application deadlines are available from the department.
If more than four years have passed since the time of initial admission, readmission must be accomplished by following the full application process.
If three or fewer semesters, including the summer session, have passed since the student was first admitted to a degree program, re-admission requires contacting the Office of Admissions and Records.
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 school or college dean. In case of lack of agreement between the department and the dean, or in the case of appeal by the student, the final decision will be made by the Graduate Council.
Changing Programs
Former and current students who wish to change from one degree program to another to which they have already been admitted must provide all items required of students applying to the Graduate Programs at CU-Denver for the first time. These applicants, however, may petition the program to which they were initially admitted in order to secure a release of transcripts supplied at the time of their initial application.
Transferring
Students transferring from another CU campus to CU-Denver must apply and be accepted to the new campus.
Doctoral Application
A student who has completed a master's program at CU-Denver must resubmit Parts I and II of the graduate application for acceptance into the doctoral program.
Non-Degree Students
A student who wishes to take graduate courses but is not interested in earning a specific advanced degree may apply as a non-degree student. Contact the Office of Admissions at (303) 556-2704 for further information. Non-degree students will be allowed to register only on the campus to which they have been admitted.
Non-degree students who later desire to pursue a graduate degree program at this university are encouraged to submit
the complete graduate application and supporting credentials to their department as soon as possible.
A department may recommend the transfer of as many as 9 credit hours 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 of Colorado, or a combination.
In addition, the department may recommend the acceptance of credit courses taken as a non-degree student at this university during the term for which the student applied for admission to a graduate program, 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.
International Applicants
Prospective international students should have completed applications on file in the Office of Admissions prior to December 1 for the summer session, March 1 for the fall semester, and July 1 for the spring semester. The application packet should include:
$60 fee
TOEFL scores
Financial documentation
Graduate Record Examination scores
Official English translation of all school records
Other documents as noted in the previous section on Application Procedures.
Acceptable TOEFL Scores. The TOEFL is the Test of English as a Foreign Language. If a student’s native language is not English, or the student has not attended a British or American university for at least one year and achieved satisfactory grades, then he/she must take the TOEFL. All programs within arts and sciences, education, engineering, and doctoral programs require a minimum score of 500 for regular admission. Students seeking admission to all other graduate programs, including those in architecture and planning, business, and public affairs, should consult those program descriptions for language requirements.
In addition, all international students whose first language is not English are required to have a minimum Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score of 500 before CU-Denver will process the application for admission. However, many departments require a TOEFL score higher than 500 when granting admission to a graduate program.


18 / General Information
Graduate Qualifying Examinations
At the option of any department, the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) may be required of applicants for admission to the graduate program or for assistantships prior to determining student status.
Students who are applying for assistantships for the fall semester should take the GRE no later than the December testing date so that their scores will be available to the selection committee. Six weeks should be allowed for GRE scores to be received by your department.
Information regarding these examinations may be obtained from the CU-Denver Office of Admissions or The Educational Testing Service; Box 1502; Berkeley, California 94701, or Box 955; Princeton, New Jersey 08540.
Other tests may be required by the school or college. Students entering professional schools and special programs may obtain information on the Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT), Miller Analogies Test (MAT), Dopplet, and Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) from the college or school requiring the test.
Registration
On the regular registration days of each semester, students who have been admitted to a graduate program are required to complete appropriate registration procedures.
Students should register for classes the semester they are accepted as graduate students. If unable to attend that semester, they must notify the Office of Admissions and Records, in addition to the department that has accepted them.
CHANGES IN REGISTRATION
A student who wishes to drop a course or take it for no credit should follow the drop/add standard procedure (see current Schedule of Courses'). After the tenth week of classes graduate students may not drop, add, or change a course to nocredit status without presenting a letter to the dean of their school or college, stating the exceptional circumstances that 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
Graduate students who desire to withdraw from the University must apply to the dean of their school or college 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. After the tenth week of the class, the student must have the Associate Dean’s signature to drop a course.
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 at least 5 credit hours of mixed under-graduate/graduate courses, 1 hour ofthe-sis/dissertation, or as a candidate for degree.
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 other graduate work or any number of thesis hours.
A graduate student may receive credit toward a degree for up to 15 hours in a regular semester and 10 hours during a summer semester. A graduate student may contact the school or college dean’s office for information on the appeal process regarding an overload.
For the number of hours required for financial aid, see “Financial Aid” in the General Information section of this catalog.
Full-time employees of the University may take 6 credit hours per semester. Part-time employees, including assistants, may take the number of credit hours approved by the major department.
Tuition and Fees

Financial Aid for Graduate Study
COLORADO GRADUATE GRANT
The Colorado Graduate Grant is administered by the Office of Financial Aid. 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 term. Applications are available from the Office of Financial Aid, (303) 556-2886.
COLORADO GRADUATE FELLOWSHIPS
Colorado Graduate Fellowships are awarded primarily to entering and continuing regular degree doctoral students.
These are awarded to entering students on the basis of academic promise and to continuing students on the basis of academic success. Please contact your department for information about this fellowship.
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.
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 hours per week. Teaching assistants and instructors must be enrolled as full-time students (registered for at least 5 credit hours of mixed undergraduate/graduate courses, I hour of thesis or dissertation, or as a candidate for degree) in good standing for the full period of their appointment. Please contact your department for further information.
RESEARCH ASSISTANTSHIPS
Research activities provide opportunities for graduate students to obtain part-time work as research assistants in many departments. Assistants must be enrolled as full-time students (registered for at least 5 credit hours of mixed undergraduate/ graduate courses, I hour of thesis or dissertation, or as a candidate for degree). Please contact your department for further information.
LOAN FUNDS
Graduate students wishing to apply for long-term loans and for part-time jobs through the college workstudy 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. Application should be made directly to the Office of Financial Aid, (303) 556-2886.
EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES
The University maintains an employment service in the Office of Financial Aid to help students obtain part-time


Graduate Programs /19
work, either through conventional employment or through the college workstudy 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.
Requirements for Advanced Degrees
QUALITY OF GRADUATE WORK
A student is expected to maintain at least an overall 3.0 average in all work attempted while enrolled in a graduate program.
For the M.A., M.B.S., M.H., M.S., and M.S.S., a course mark below C+ is unsatisfactory and will not be counted toward the minimum requirements for these degrees.
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, with the approval of the major department.
Appeal may be made to the CU-Denver Graduate Council. The Council’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 school or college dean.
REPEATING A COURSE
A graduate student who receives a grade of C, D, or Fin 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 graduation, the Graduate Programs office will manually substitute the grade of the repeated course for the old grade. Minimum cumulative grade-point average for courses applying toward the graduate degree is 3.0. All grades for courses taken as a graduate student will appear on the student’s transcript and will be used in calculating the official graduate grade-point average.
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 grade-point average.
USE OF ENGLISH
A student who is noticeably deficient in the use of standard English in all oral and written work may not obtain an advanced degree from the University of Colorado. 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.
GRADUATE APPEALS
Final action on appeals submitted by graduate students concerning action taken by faculty members, programs, or administrative officials rests with the campus Graduate Council, unless such appeal involves a matter affecting two or more campuses. In such a case, the final action rests with the Executive Committee of the System-Wide Graduate School.
Master's Degree
A student regularly admitted to a graduate program and later accepted as a candidate for the Master of Arts, Master of Science, or other master’s degrees will be recommended for the degree only after certain requirements have been met.
The requirements stated below are minimum requirements; additional conditions set by the department will be found in the program descriptions in this catalog.
Students planning to graduate should ascertain current deadlines of the Graduate Programs. It is the graduate student’s and the department’s respqnsif bility to see that all requirements and deadlines are met (i.e., changing of IW grades, notifying the Graduate Programs of final examinations, etc.).
Departments or program committees may have additional deadlines that must be met by the 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 chair.
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS
The minimum requirements of graduate work for the degrees Master of Arts or Master of Science may be fulfilled by following either Plan I or Plan II below.
Plan I: By presenting 24 semester hours of graduate work, including 4-6 thesis hours. At least 18 semester hours of this work must be at the 5000 level or above.
Plan 11: By presenting 30 semester hours of graduate work, without a thesis. At least 16 semester hours of this work must be at the 5000 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.
Note: The above requirements are minimum. Individual departments may require additional course work for attainment of the degree. Please refer to specific program for further details.
LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS
Candidates must have such knowledge of ancient and modern languages as each department requires. See specific departmental requirements.
GRADUATE CREDIT
Graduate credit is given for courses that are listed at the 5000 level or above and that are offered by professors who are members of the graduate faculty, or , that have otherwise been approved by the Campus Graduate Dean at CU-Denver. Departmental approval must be obtained for the courses taken by a student to count toward the degree plan.
Students are advised that not all courses listed in the Catalog are available at any one time. Some are given in alternate years and this should be considered when developing degree plans.
Courses will have graduate rank if they are taught by members of the graduate faculty and are in one of the following categories:
1. Courses within the major program at the 5000 level or above.
2. Courses that are outside the major program, provided they are approved for a specific degree plan by the faculty of the degree-granting program and the Campus Graduate Dean.
3. The Master of Basic Science program (M.B.S.) provides the option for 3000-and 4000-level courses if approved . by the department and the Campus Graduate Dean. However, this does not change the minimum number of courses that must be taken at the 5000 level or above.
RESIDENCE
In general, the residence requirements can be met only by full residence at the


20 / General Information
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 5000 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. Part-time students must carry the equivalent of 3 semester hours of work in courses numbered 5000 or above.
Graduate 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 work. Full-time employees may not satisfy the residence requirements of one year in fewer than four semesters.
CREDIT BY TRANSFER
A limited amount of high quality resident graduate work done in a recognized graduate school elsewhere within the time allowed may be accepted, provided it is recommended by the department concerned and approved by the school or college dean. To be eligible for courses to be considered for transfer, a student must have an overall 3.0 average in all courses taken at the University of Colorado in the Graduate Programs.
Credits earned as a non-degree student at CU-Denver may be transferred as described in the section on Non-Degree Students.
The maximum amount of work that may be transferred to this University is 9 semester hours.
Credit will not be transferred until the student has established in a graduate program of this University a satisfactory record of at least one semester in residence; such transfer will not reduce the residence at this University, but it may reduce the amount of work to be done in formal courses.
The following are courses which will not be transferred:
• Work already applied toward a master’s degree.
• Courses with “Pass/Fail” or “Satisfac-tory/Unsatisfactory” grades.
• Extension work completed at another institution.
• Correspondence work, except to make up deficiencies.
• Excess undergraduate credits from another institution.
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 school or college by the beginning of the semester prior to that in which the student will be graduated. For more information, contact your graduate advisor.
CONTINUING EDUCATION COURSE WORK
Students may use courses offered through Extended Studies programs in individual schools and colleges in the pursuit of graduate study only if they obtain proper academic approval from the major department.
ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY
A student who wishes to become a candidate for a master’s degree must file a completed Application for Admission to Candidacy in the Graduate Programs office ten weeks prior to the completion of the comprehensive final examination.
This application must be made on forms obtainable from the Graduate Programs office and in the student’s department, and must be signed by the student’s advisor and the department chair, 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 probation is not eligible to be awarded a degree until he or she is removed from probation.
MASTER'S THESIS CREDIT
Every graduate student working toward a master’s degree under Plan 1 who expects to present a thesis in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree must register for thesis credit for a minimum of 4 semester hours or a maximum of 6 semester hours. The final grade will be withheld until the thesis is completed. If the thesis is not completed at the end of the term in which the student is so registered, an In Progress (IP) will be reported.
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 1. 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 outlined in Directions for Preparing Master’s and Doctoral Theses, which is obtainable from the Graduate Programs office, and have received
a preliminary thesis format approval.
Two weeks prior to the date on which the degree is to be conferred, three formally approved, printed or typewritten copies of the thesis must be filed in the Graduate Programs office.
All theses must be signed by the thesis advisor and other committee members. All approved theses are kept on file in the Auraria Library. The thesis binding fee must be paid when the thesis is submitted to the Graduate Programs office.
COMPREHENSIVE FINAL EXAMINATION/THESIS DEFENSE
All candidates for a master’s degree are required to take a comprehensive final examination and/or to defend their thesis, or both, after the other requirements for the degree have been completed or nearly completed. This examination may be given near the end of their last semester of residence while they are still taking required courses for the degree, provided they are making satisfactory progress in those courses.
The following rules applying to the comprehensive final examination must be observed:
1. Students must be registered when they take the examination.
2. Notice of the examination must be filed by the major department in the Graduate Programs office at least one week 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 school or college dean.
4. The examination, which may be oral, written, or both, must cover work done at the University in formal courses and seminars in the major field. The examination will also cover the thesis, for students under Plan I, which should be essentially complete at the time the examination is taken.


Graduate Programs / 21
5. An examination in the minor work taken at this university is optional with the major and minor departments.
6. The examination must include all work presented for the degree not done in residence at the University of Colorado, whether in the major or minor field. The examination on transferred work will be given by representatives of the corresponding fields of study in this university.
7. A student who fails the comprehensive final examination may not attempt the examination again until at least three months have elapsed and until such work as may be prescribed by the examining committee has been completed. The student may retake
the examination only once.
SUPPLEMENTAL EXAMINATIONS
Supplemental examinations should be simply an extension of the original comprehensive examination and given afterward. If the student fails the supplemental examination, three months must elapse before attempting the supplemental examination again.
COURSE EXAMINATIONS
The regular written examinations for each semester except the last must be taken. Course examinations for the last semester,which come after the comprehensive final examination has been passed, may be omitted with the consent of the instructor.
TIMELIMIT
Master’s degree students have five years from the date of the start of course work to complete all degree requirements. For students who fail to complete the degree in this five-year period, it will be necessary for the program director to file an annual statement with the Campus Graduate Dean, stating the reasons why the program faculty believe the student is making adequate progress and should be allowed to continue in the program. Students who do their work exclusively in summer terms must complete all degree requirements within 72 months from the start of course work.
A student who does not complete all degree requirements within the specified period of time must validate, by special examination(s), any course work taken more than 6 years prior to taking the master’s comprehensive examination or completing the thesis defense, depending on which plan is elected.
DEADLINES FOR MASTER'S DEGREE CANDIDATES
Deadline dates for the following can be obtained by calling (303) 556-2663.
1. Last day for requesting transfer of credit.
2. Application for Admission to Candidacy form and diploma cards. Students are urged to submit these forms at the beginning of the semester prior to that in which they expect to receive the degree. Please note: a new diploma card must be submitted for the semester a student is planning to graduate, even
if a diploma card was submitted for a previous semester. (The forms may be picked up in the department or in the Graduate Programs office).
3. Last day for submission of Request for Graduate Examination Form.
4. Last day for thesis to be approved by department.
5. Last day for scheduling of comprehensive final examination and thesis defense.
6. Last day for taking comprehensive final examination and thesis defense.
7. Last day for submitting thesis for format review.
8. Last day for submitting final thesis to the Campus Graduate Dean. At the time of submission, the thesis must be complete in all respects and must meet thesis specifications in order to be accepted.
Doctor of Philosophy
The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree is the highest academic degree conferred by the University. To state the requirements for the degree in terms of credit hours would be misleading because the degree is not conferred merely upon the satisfactory completion of a course of study, however faithfully pursued.
Students who receive this degree must demonstrate that they are proficient in some broad subject of learning and that they can critically evaluate work in this field; furthermore, they must have shown the ability to work independently in their chosen field and must have made an original contribution of significance to the advancement of knowledge. The technical requirements stated below are minimal requirements for all candidates for the degree; additional conditions set by the departments will be found in the announcements of separate departments. Any department may make additional regulations consistent with these general rules.
Studies leading to the Ph.D. degree must be chosen so as to contribute to special competence and a high order of scholarship in a broad field of knowledge. A field of study chosen by the student may be in one department or it may include two or more closely related departments.
The criterion as to what constitutes an acceptable field of study shall be that the student’s work must contribute to an organized program of study and research without regard to the organization of academic departments within the University.
MINIMUM COURSE/DISSERTATION REQUIREMENTS
A minimum of 30 semester hours of graduate courses and 30 semester hours of dissertation credit are required for the Ph.D. degree.
Course Work Requirement. A minimum of 30 semester hours of courses numbered 5000 or above is required for the degree, but the number of hours of formal courses will ordinarily exceed this minimum. At least 20 of the required hours must be in graduate courses taken in residence at this university. Students who have been admitted to the Graduate Programs with deficiencies may expect to receive little or no residence credits until the deficiencies have been removed.
Dissertation Hours Requirement. To complete the requirements for the Ph.D., a student must complete a total of at least 30 hours of doctoral dissertation credit, with not more than ten of these credit hours taken during any single semester.
No more than ten dissertation hours may be taken prior to the semester of taking the comprehensive examination. An additional ten dissertation hours may also be taken during the semester the comprehensive examination is taken.
It is not necessary to complete the comprehensive examination to register for dissertation hours. Dissertation credit does not apply toward the minimum 30 hours of required course work specified above.
Course work and work on the dissertation may proceed concurrently throughout the doctoral program; however, at no time shall a doctoral student register for more than 15 hours of 5000 level and above courses.
ADVISORY COMMITTEE
The Advisory Committee will be appointed by the student’s program director.


22 / General Information
A purpose of the advisory committee (beyond guiding the student through graduate study) is to ensure against specialization that is too narrow. The student shall obtain the signature of the chair of the committee (thereby signifying his or her willingness to act) on the Application for Admission to Candidacy form. Any change in the membership of the advisory committee is to be similarly reported.
All members of the committee must be appointed to the Graduate Faculty.
LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT
The decision on foreign language requirements for Ph.D. degrees is the responsibility of the graduate faculty of each graduate program.
GRADUATE CREDIT
See section under Master’s Degree.
RESIDENCE
The student must be properly registered to earn residence credit. The minimal residence requirement shall be six semesters of scholarly work beyond the attainment of an acceptable bachelor’s degree. Mere attendance shall not constitute residence as the word is here used. Residence may be earned for course work completed with distinction, for participation in seminars, or for scholarly research performed here or elsewhere under the auspices of the University of Colorado.
Two semesters of residence credit may be allowed for a master’s degree from another institution of approved standing, but at least four semesters of residence credit, two of which must be consecutive in one academic year, must be earned for work (course and/or dissertation) taken at this university.
A part of the residence requirement for the Ph.D. degree may be spent in another graduate institution, or in field work in absentia (provided that prior approval for work is given by the student’s program director and provided that the student’s registration is maintained for that period away from the campus).
CREDIT BY TRANSFER
Resident graduate work of high quality earned in another institution of approved standing will not be accepted for transfer to apply toward the doctorate until the student has established a satisfactory record in residence in the Graduate Programs. Such credit must be transferred before the student makes application for admission to candidacy for the degree. Such transfer will not reduce the minimum residence
requirement at this university, but it may reduce the amount of work to be done in formal courses.
The maximum amount of work that may be transferred to this university for the Ph.D. is 30 semester hours, or 50% of non-dissertation course credits required by the program, whichever is smaller. See also Credit by Transfer under the Master’s Degree description.
PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION
Each department will satisfy itself (by examination or other means) that students who signify intent to undertake study for the Ph.D. degree are qualified to do so. The means by which each department makes this evaluation shall be specified in departmental requirements. Students who are thus evaluated will be notified immediately of the results.
APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY
A student must make formal application for admission to candidacy for the Ph.D. degree on forms supplied by the Graduate Programs office at least two weeks before the comprehensive examination is attempted.
The Admission to Candidacy form shall include an approved degree plan. Approval of the application shall occur only after the comprehensive examination has been passed, the student has been in residence for at least four semesters, the language requirement has been satisfied, and all standards of quality and content have been met.
COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION
Before admission to candidacy for the Ph.D. degree, the student must pass a comprehensive examination in the field of concentration and related fields. This examination may be oral, written, or both, and will test the student’s mastery of a broad field of knowledge, not merely the formal course work completed. The oral portion is open to members of the faculty. The student must be registered at the time the comprehensive examination is attempted.
The examination shall be conducted by an examining board appointed by the student’s program director and be approved by the Campus Graduate Dean. The board shall consist of the advisory committee and additional members as necessary to total a minimum of five members of the graduate faculty, one of whom must be from outside the student’s program and represent the Graduate Faculty at large.
A successful candidate must receive the affirmative votes of a majority of the members of the examination board. In case of failure, the examination may be attempted once more after a period of time determined by the examining board.
CONTINUOUS REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS FOR DOCTORAL CANDIDATES
Following successful completion of comprehensive examinations, students must register continuously. Students admitted to candidacy for degree will register for and be charged for seven hours of credit for each full-time term of doctoral work. For each term of part-time enrollment, students will be charged for seven hours of dissertation credit, except that students not making use of campus facilities may petition the Campus Graduate Dean for three-credit-hour status. Continuous registration during the academic year will be required until completion of the dissertation defense.
It is expected that the student and advisor will consult each semester as to the number of hours for which the student will register, consistent with the classification identified above.
DISSERTATION REQUIREMENTS
A dissertation based upon original investigation, showing mature scholarship, critical judgment, and familiarity with the tools and methods of research must be written upon a subject approved by the student’s major department. To be acceptable, this dissertation should be a worthwhile contribution to knowledge in the student’s special field. It must be finished and submitted at least 30 days (in some departments, 90 days) before the day of the final examination, and must be formally approved and made available for inspection by the examining committee before the final examination may be taken.
In mechanical features, all dissertations must comply with the specifications as outlined in the Directions for Preparing Master’s and Doctoral Theses, which may be obtained from the Graduate Programs office. The final draft must be reviewed and approved by the Graduate Programs office three weeks before the end of the semester of graduation.
It is the student’s responsibility to notify the Graduate Programs office of the exact title of the dissertation at least six weeks prior to the commencement at which the student will graduate. This title will be printed in the commencement program (May graduation only).


Tuition and Fees / 23
Three formally approved, typewritten copies of the dissertation, including abstract, plus one additional copy of the title page and abstract must be filed in the Graduate Programs office at least two weeks before the date on which the degree is to be conferred.
The abstract, not to exceed 350 words, will be published in Dissertation Abstracts International. The determination of what constitutes an adequate abstract shall rest with the major department.
All dissertations must be signed by no fewer than five members who are regularly engaged in graduate instruction and are members of the graduate faculty.
All approved dissertations are kept on file in the library.
When the dissertation is deposited in the Graduate Programs office, the candidate must pay the thesis-binding fee and sign an agreement with University Microfilms International to allow for publication in Dissertation Abstracts International and to grant University Microfilms International the right to reproduce and sell (a) copies of the manuscript in microform and/or (b) copies of the manuscript made from microform. The author retains all rights to publish and/or sell the dissertation by any means at any time except by reproduction from negative microform.
FINAL EXAMINATION/DEFENSE
After the dissertation has been accepted, a final examination of the dissertation and related topics will be conducted. This examination will be wholly or partially oral, the oral portion being open to anyone. The examination will be conducted by a committee consisting of at least five members of the graduate faculty, one of whom must be from outside the student’s department. More than one dissenting vote will disqualify the candidate in the final examination.
Arrangements for the final examination must be made in the Graduate Programs office at least two weeks in advance through the Request for Examination form. The examination must be scheduled no later than two weeks before the date on which the degree is to be conferred.
A student must be registered at the time of the final examination.
TIME LIMIT
The number of years allowed for completion of a doctoral degree is normally six, but in some programs it may be seven. If a student fails to complete all requirements for the degree within the
prescribed number of years from the date of the start of course work in the doctoral program, a second examination similar to the preliminary examination will be required before the candidate may take the final examination.
If the comprehensive examination is failed, it may be attempted once more after a period of time determined by the examining board. For students who fail to complete the degree in the prescribed period, it will be necessary for the department to file an annual statement indicating that the program director believes the student is making adequate progress and should be allowed to continue in the program. This request must be signed by three members of the graduate faculty who serve on the student’s thesis advisory committee.
Students planning to graduate should obtain current deadline dates in the Graduate Programs office. If approved by the Graduate Programs office, the student may continue his/her studies for one additional year. If not approved, the student may be dropped from the program.
DEADLINES FOR DOCTORAL DEGREE CANDIDATES
Deadline dates for the following can be obtained by calling (303) 556-6536.

TUITION AND FEES
All tuition and fee charges are established by the Board of Regents, the governing body of the University of Colorado, in accordance with legislation enacted annually (usually in the spring) by the Colorado General Assembly. The Regents reserve the right to change tuition and fee rates at any time. A tuition schedule is published prior to registration for each term, and students should contact the Records Office for further information on the tuition and fee charges for a particular term.
Payment of Tuition and Fees
All tuition and fees (except the application fee) are assessed and payable when the student registers for the term, according to guidelines in the current Schedule of Courses. Students may select one of the payment plans that are available at CU-Denver. Specific information on the deferred payment plans is included in the Schedule of Courses published before each semester or summer session. Students who fail to pay tuition and fees in full or make payment arrangements by the published deadlines will be dropped from all classes.
Students who register in a non-degree status, and who later apply and are admitted to a degree status for that term, are responsible for the difference in tuition between the non-degree program and their applicable degree program and will be billed accordingly. Students who register for courses are liable for payment of tuition and fees even if they drop out of school. Refund policies for students who withdraw from the University are included in the Schedule of Courses. A student with financial obligations to the University will not be permitted to register for any subsequent term, to be graduated, to be issued transcripts, 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 that is not acceptable to the bank will be assessed an additional service charge. Students may also pay tuition and fees by credit card.
The following rates are for the 1997-98 academic year and are provided to assist prospective students in anticipating cost.


24 / General Information
Tuition Appeals
Exceptions to financial obligations incurred will be reviewed by the Tuition Appeals Committee. The Committee will only consider appeals when a student has been medically disabled, has experienced a death in the family, or has a change in employment hours or location beyond the student’s control. Each condition requires a specific form. Contact the Student Retention Office to obtain proper Tuition Petition Forms. It is absolutely required that all conditions be documented.
Exceptions will not be considered when the student has failed to comply with published deadlines or where conditions were under control of the student.
NOTE: Students will have one year to file a Tuition Petition beginning with the last day of the term for which the appeal is filed. Tuition Petition Forms should be requested from and filed with the Office of Student Retention Services, located in the CU-Denver Building, Suite 100,
1250 14th Street, (303) 556-2324.

Residency Classification for Tuition Purposes
Tuition classification is governed by Colorado statutes that apply to all state-funded institutions in Colorado. Institutions are bound by the provisions of this statute and are not free to make exceptions to the rules set forth.
Students are initially classified as instate or out-of-state for tuition purposes at the time of application. The classification is based upon information furnished by the student and from other relevant sources. After the student’s status is determined, it remains unchanged in the absence of satisfactory evidence to the contrary.
Once a student is classified as a nonresident for tuition purposes, the student must petition for a change in classification. Petitions must be submitted NO LATER THAN THE FIRST OFFICIAL DAY OF CLASSES of the term for which the student wishes to be classified as a resident. It is preferred that petitions be received 30 days prior to the beginning of the term. Late petitions will not be considered until the next semester. Specific information may be obtained from the Office of Admissions.
The final decision regarding tuition status rests with the University. Questions
regarding residence (tuition) status should be referred only to the Tuition Classification Officer. Opinions of other persons are not official or binding upon the University. Additional information is available in the brochure, Classification of Students for Tuition Purposes, which may be obtained from the Admissions Office.
BASIC REQUIREMENTS
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 being sought. Persons over 23 years of age or who are emancipated establish their own legal domicile. Those who are under 23 years of age and unemancipated assume the domicile of their parent or court-appointed legal guardian. An unemancipated minor’s parent must, therefore, have a legal domicile in Colorado for one year or more before the minor may be classified as an in-state student for tuition purposes.
ESTABLISHING DOMICILE
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 the domicile. The question of intent is one of documentable fact and needs to be shown by substantial connections with the state sufficient to evidence such intent. Legal domicile in Colorado for tuition purposes begins the day after 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; and most important, (5) 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 legal domicile retroactive to the time filed. 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 the semester, instate tuition cannot be granted until the next semester.
Resident Tuition for Active Duty Military Personnel
The Colorado Legislature approved resident tuition for active duty military personnel on permanent duty assignment in Colorado and for their dependents. ELIGIBLE STUDENTS MUST BE CERTIFIED EACH TERM. Students obtain a completed verification form from the base education officer, and submit the form with their military ID to the Records Office after they have registered, but before the end of the drop/add period. At the time the verification form is certified in the Records Office, the student’s bill will be adjusted to reflect the resident tuition rate. Students who have been certified remain classified as non-residents for tuition purposes and must petition to change their status once they establish permanent ties to Colorado.
NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION
An orientation program for all new students is held at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, prior to the first day of classes. The orientation program provides information to new students about activities and services available at CU-Denver. Information on the registration process, parking, and securing ID cards is also provided. Academic advising sessions are held before registration for the term.

The Office of Financial Aid offers over $30 million in financial aid awards to qualified students each year. If the student’s financial aid application materials are received before the March 31 priority date, then the student is considered for a package of need-based grant, work-study (part-time employment) and/or long-term loan funds. If the financial aid application materials are received after the March 31 priority date, then the student is usually considered only for a Federal Pell Grant and for outside student loans (Federal Stafford Loan or Federal Parents Loan).
Applicants for Colorado Graduate Fellowship, Colorado Deans Scholars award, and Colorado Regents Scholars award are subject to different deadlines


28 / General Information
and are reviewed by other CU-Denver departments (the Graduate Programs, undergraduate deans’ offices, and the Office of Admissions, respectively).
All other applicants for financial aid are notified of their award status in writing by the Office of Financial Aid.
Eligibility
Each student must qualify for CU-Denver financial aid as follows:
1. Be a U.S. citizen or be admitted to the U.S. by the INS on a permanent basis.
2. Be classified as a degree-seeking student by the CU-Denver Office of Admissions. Teacher certification students are eligible to apply for financial aid and are considered as undergraduate students according to federal guidelines.
3. Be enrolled for a minimum number of credits as specified on the financial aid award letter and/or student loan planning letter.
4. Meet the minimum requirements of Financial Aid Academic Standards.
5. Apply for financial aid by submitting all of the required documentation. The need analysis form is required for all programs except the Colorado Graduate Fellowship, Colorado Scholars award, Colorado Deans Scholars award, Colorado Regents Scholars award, and the Emergency Student Loan Program.
6. Be classified as a resident for tuition purposes for the following programs: Colorado Student Grant, Colorado Student Incentive Grant, Colorado Graduate Grant, Colorado Work-Study, Colorado Regents Scholars award, Colorado Deans Scholars award, and Colorado Scholars award.
7. Not be in default on any student loan or owe a refund on any educational grant.
8. Be registered for the draft or be enlisted in the armed forces if required by Selective Service.
Application
Each applicant must complete the financial aid application materials for submission to the Office of Financial Aid. Complete information must be available to the office before eligibility can be determined.
Limited Funds- The majority of general financial aid funds are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible students who document significant financial need and who complete their application materials in the Office of Financial Aid by the March 31 priority date. Application completion is defined
as having all of the required documents and the results of the need analysis (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) into the Office of Financial Aid. General financial aid is awarded to needy students who meet the priority date until all of the funds are committed for the year. If the file is completed after March 31, then awards will probably be limited to Federal Pell Grant (for needy first undergraduate students only) and /or outside student loans (Federal Stafford Loan or Federal Parents Loan). Application for financial aid must be made each year; application materials are available in January of each year.
It is the student’s responsibility to be sure application materials are complete. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid for application forms and complete details. All financial aid policies and procedures are subject to change due to revisions in federal and state laws, regulations, and guidelines.
Qualification
Financial Need-Most financial aid awards are based on the concept of financial need. Financial need is calculated as: cost of attendance (tuition, fees, books, living expenses) minus family contribution (student/spouse contribution and parents’ contribution for dependent students).
The cost of attendance is the estimated cost to attend CU-Denver, including tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses. The Office of Financial Aid determines standard budgets based upon average tuition and fees charged and other budget items established by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education.
For 1997-98, the following monthly budgets were used for room and board, transportation, and personal expenses: $570 for students living at home with parents; $930 for students not living with parents. Resident tuition and fees for a full-time student were approximately $ 1,100 per semester and non-resident tuition and fees were approximately $5,950 per semester. These amounts will probably increase by approximately 3% for the 1998-99 school year.
Independent Student-The federal government provides specific guidelines that define a self-supporting student for financial aid purposes. If a student is classified as self-supporting, then the student’s parental information is not considered when the calculation of family
contribution is made. For 1998-99, a self-supporting student is one who is 24 years old (born before 1/1/75) or one who meets one of the following conditions:
1. Graduate student
2. Married student
3. Student with legal dependents other
than a spouse
4. Veteran of the U.S. armed forces
5. Orphan or ward of the court
These conditions may be appealed
to the Office of Financial Aid if unusual circumstances exist. Contact the office for appeal guidelines.
If the student/spouse contribution plus the parents’ contribution is equal to or greater than the cost of attendance, then the student will not qualify for need-based financial aid.
The contributions from the student/ spouse and from the parents are calculated by a standardized formula that is required by federal law. The formula considers income, savings and other assets, family size, number of children in postsecondary school, and other factors. Students may appeal for special consideration if they are experiencing unusual circumstances. Financial aid is intended to supplement and not replace financial contributions from the student and parents.
Course Loads-General financial aid undergraduate recipients usually must enroll for at least 12 credits per semester, and graduate students usually must enroll for at least 5 credits per semester. Federal Stafford Loan recipients must carry at least a half-time credit load (6 hours for undergraduates per semester and 3 hours for graduates per semester). For deferment of student loans, please refer to the Schedule of Courses each term for specific information. Higher or lower minimums may be required for individual awards (please check award letter and/or student loan planning letter for the exact number of credits required).
Academic Progress-CU-Denver students must make academic progress as defined by the Office of Financial Aid in order to be eligible and remain eligible for financial aid. Students should review the Financial Aid Academic Standards policy, available in the Office of Financial Aid.
Non-Degree Students-Non-degree students are eligible to be considered only for the Advantage Scholarship Program. Please refer to separate brochure for application procedures. Teacher certification students may apply for financial aid and are considered as undergraduate students for financial aid purposes.


Financial Aid / 29
Residency Status-A student is required to be a resident of Colorado for a full year before the Office of Admissions can consider classification as a resident for tuition purposes. Non-resident students are encouraged to obtain additional information from the Office of Admissions about appealing for resident status. As a resident, a student is eligible for the State of Colorado financial aid programs, and tuition is significantly less than for non-resident.
Refunds and Repayments-Any refund of tuition and fees resulting from withdrawal or reclassification of tuition status must be applied to the recipient’s financial aid awards before any payment is made to the student. Students may also be expected to repay a portion of their financial aid awards if they withdraw from CU-Denver.
The institution must determine the refund policy which provides the largest refund to a recipient of Title IV financial aid funds (Federal Stafford Loan, Federal PLUS Loan, Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Program, Federal College Work Study and/or State Student Incentive Grant). In addition to the institution’s refund policy, one of two federal refund policies must also be applied.
Federal Pro Rata Refund Policy-This federal policy is applicable to Title IV recipients who are attending CU-Denver for the first time and withdraw in the first term of attendance.
Federal Refund Policy-This federal policy is applicable to Title IV recipients who do not meet the criteria for a Federal Pro Rata Refund.
The larger refund between the institutional policy and the applicable federal policy is implemented. Once the refund is determined, it must then be returned to the financial aid programs that the student received (excluding the Federal and State College Work Study Programs). Refunds are allocated to financial assistance programs up to the amount the student received before any funds are returned to the student.
Repayments-Financial aid recipients can receive assistance for non-institu-tional costs, such as living expenses, as well as for institutional charges. When a student withdraws, the institution must determine if the disbursement the student received for non-institutional costs exceeds the amount of living expenses incurred. If the institution determines that the student was overpaid, then the student will be required to repay a portion of his or her non-institutional financial
aid (excluding Federal/State College Work Study, Federal Stafford Loans, and Federal PLUS Loans).
For a complete description of federal, state, and institutional requirements, please request a copy of the Refund and Repayment Policy from the Office of Financial Aid.
Appeals-Students may appeal all decisions of the Office of Financial Aid by completing a Request for Review form and submitting it to the office. Appeals are considered within three weeks and a written response is mailed to the student.
Reapply Each Tear-Financial aid awards are not automatically renewed each year. Students must reapply and meet priority dates each year. Application materials for the next summer term are available beginning January 1.
Award
Students are notified in writing of their financial aid eligibility approximately 8-12 weeks after all application materials have been received in the Office of Financial Aid. If awarded, an award letter is mailed to the student; it includes the types and amounts of aid awarded and the minimum number of credit hours required each term. A student loan planning letter is mailed to the student after the outside student loan application(s) have been processed.
Grants and Loans
The following aid programs are funded by the federal government:
1. Federal Pell Grant-Eligibility for the Federal Pell Grant is determined before any other aid is awarded. Awards are defined by a strict need-based formula provided by the federal government, and award amounts vary depending upon amount of financial need, enrollment status, residency status, and whether the student is living with parents. Students are eligible for Federal Pell Grant consideration if they have not received their first baccalaureate degree by June 1 of the award year.
2. Outside Student Loans -Eligibility for all other types of assistance should be determined prior to applying for outside student loans. The subsidized Federal Stafford Loan program requires that students show financial need in order to qualify. Interest on the subsidized loan is paid for the student by the federal government as long as the student remains enrolled at least half-time and for a six-month grace period after
dropping below half-time enrollment. The unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan program does not require the student to document financial need. Eligibility is calculated as the cost of attendance minus other financial aid awarded. Interest is not paid by the federal government for the unsubsidized program, and the student may elect to pay the interest currently or to allow the interest to be added to the total loan amount. Interest rates for the Federal Stafford Loan programs are variable, and are capped at 8.25%. Parents of dependent students are eligible to borrow under the Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students program (PLUS). The PLUS program is unsubsidized, and interest payments become the responsibility of the borrower at the time of disbursement. The interest rate varies on the PLUS program, and is capped at 9%.
3. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG)-This is a need-based grant program for students who have not yet obtained a baccalaureate degree. Students must be eligible for a Federal Pell Grant to be considered for SEOG.
4. Federal Perkins Loan-This need-based loan program, with an interest rate currently at 5%, is based at CU-Denver. No repayment of interest or principal is due until six or nine months (time period differs depending upon when student first received Perkins Loan) after the student ceases to be enrolled at least half-time.
5. Federal College Wor/e-Sftrdy-Work-study is a need-based program that allows students to work on a part-time basis on campus or off campus at non-profit agencies to help meet their educational costs.
The State of Colorado funds the
following programs:
1. Colorado Student Grant-A need-based grant for resident undergraduate students.
2. Colorado Student Incentive Grant-A need-based grant for resident undergraduates who have not yet obtained a bachelor’s degree. This grant is funded 50% by the federal government and 50% by the State of Colorado.
3. Colorado Graduate Grant-A need-based grant for resident graduate students.
4. Colorado Work-Study-A program similar to the College Work-Study program but limited to resident undergraduate students.

Students receiving veterans benefits should contact the Veterans Affairs coordinator for definition of full-time status for summer sessions.
Individual exceptions to the minimum graduate course load levels are considered for financial aid purposes by the Financial Aid Committee. Students must file a written appeal with the Office of Financial Aid.
Add/Drop
Specific add/drop deadlines are announced in each semester’s Schedule of Courses.
1. Students may add courses to their original registration during the first 12 (eight in the summer) days of full-term classes, provided there is space available.
2. Students may drop courses without approvals during the first 12 days of the fall or spring semester (the first eight days of the summer session). Tuition will not be charged. No record of the dropped course will appear on the student’s permanent record.
3. After the 12th day of a fall or spring semester (eighth day of the summer session), the instructor’s signature
is required for all drops. The instructor’s signature and dean’s signature are required for all adds.
4. After the tenth week of the fall and spring semesters (the fifth week for summer session) any schedule adjustments require a petition and special approval from the dean’s office.
5. Dropping all courses after the 12th day (eighth in the summer) requires an official withdrawal from the term.
No tuition refunds are available. Deadlines for module courses and intensive courses are published in the Schedule of Courses each term.
Auditing Courses
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 special equipment is used), provided they have received permission from each instructor.
An auditor’s card is issued after classes begin. This card should be presented to the instructor when requesting permission to attend a class. 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, and are not eligible for other student services. For more information, contact the Bursar’s Office.
Senior citizens (aged 60 and over) may audit classes at no charge. Contact the Division of Enrollment and Student Affairs at 1250 14th Street, (303) 556-8427.
Correspondence Study
Correspondence courses are offered by the CU-Boulder Division of Continuing Education. Acceptability toward a degree program should be sought from the student’s degree advisor prior to registration.


Registration / 33
Course Load/Restrictions
In most cases, students wishing to take more than 18 semester hours (12 in the summer session) must have the overload approved by the dean of their college or school. Consult the individual college or school for specific guidelines as to course load restrictions.
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. Contact the Records Office for instructions. A non-refundable fee is charged. Students should contact their degree advising office for credit applicability and approval.
No Credit
Students may register for a course on a no-credit basis with the consent of their instructor and the dean of their school or college. Students enrolling for no credit are required to pay regular tuition. File the no-credit form in the Records Office before the end of the drop/add period. Students who register for a course on a no-credit basis may not later decide that they want a letter grade.
Pass/Fail Procedure
1. Students who wish to register for a course on a pass/fail basis (or to revert from pass/fail to graded status) may do so only during the drop/add period.
2. Up to 16 semester hours of course work may be taken on a pass/fail basis and credited toward the bachelor’s degree. Only 6 hours of course work may be taken pass/fail in any given semester. [Note: Individual schools and colleges may have additional restrictions as to pass/fail credits. See the accompanying chart for an overview.]
3. Instructors will not be informed of pass/fail registration. All students who register for a pass/fail 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. Courses taken pass/fail will be included in hours toward graduation. Pass grades are not included in a student’s grade-point average. An
F grade in a course taken pass/fail will be included in the grade-point average.
4. Pass/fail registration records are maintained by the Records Office.
5. Exceptions to the pass/fail regulations are permitted for specified courses offered by the School of Education,
the Division of Extended Studies, and Study Abroad Programs.
6. Graduate degree students can exercise theP/Foption for undergraduate courses only. A grade of P will not be acceptable for graduate credit to satisfy any Graduate School requirement.
7. Students who register for a course on
a pass/fail basis may not later (after the drop/add period) decide to receive a letter grade.
8. Each school and college limits the hours and courses for which students may register on a pass/fail basis.
Please note: many other institutions will not accept a P grade for transfer credit.
SHORTTERM COURSES
Courses are also offered in five-week modules, in special weekend courses, and in seminars. Students should contact the college/school office for information on short-term courses offered each semester.
Other Registrations
CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT
Degree-seeking students who wish to attend two University of Colorado campuses concurrently must obtain permission from their school or college on their home campus. A degree student registered on the Denver campus may take up to two courses or 6 semester credit hours (whichever is greater) on another CU campus if:
1. The student obtains a Concurrent Registration form from the office of the academic dean or the Records Office.
2. The course is a required course for the student’s degree (not an elective) and not offered at CU-Denver.
3. The student obtains approval from the academic dean.

Grading System and Policies
The following grading system and policies have been standardized for all academic units of the University.
GRADE SYMBOLS
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 ***) 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.
Standard Grades Quality Points
A = superior/excellent 4.0
A(-) = 3.7
B(+) = 3.3
B = good/better than average 3.0
B(-) = 2.7
C(+) = 2.3
c = competent/average 2.0
C(-) = 1.7

D(-) = 0.7
F = failing 0.0
Instructors may, at their discretion, use the PLUS/MINUS system, but are not required to do so.
IF-incomplete-changed to an Fif not completed within one year.
IW-incomplete-changed to a IT if not completed within one year.
IP-in progress - thesis at the graduate level only.
P/F-pass/fail-P grade is not included in the grade-point average; the Fgrade is included; up to 16 hours of pass/fail course work may be credited toward a bachelor’s degree.

AC indicates registration on a no-credit basis.
W indicates withdrawal without credit.
* * * indicates the final grade roster was not received by the time grades were processed.
EXPLANATION OF IF AND IW
An IF or IW is an incomplete grade. Policies with respect to IF/IWgrades are available in the individual college and school dean’s offices. Use of the IF or IW is at the option of the course instructor and/or the academic dean’s office.
An/For/lVis given only when students, for reasons beyond their control, have been unable to complete course requirements. A substantial amount of work must have been satisfactorily completed before approval for such a grade is given.
The instructor who assigns an IF or IW sets the conditions under which the course work can be completed and the time limit for its completion. The student is expected to complete the requirements


Academic Policies and Regulations / 35
within the established deadline and not retake the entire course.
It is the instructor’s and/or the student’s decision whether a course should be retaken. If a course is retaken, it must be completed on the Denver campus or in Denver Extended Studies classes. The student must re-register for the course and pay the appropriate tuition.
The final grade (earned by completing the course requirements or by retaking the course) does not result in deletion of the IF or IW from the transcript. A second entry is posted on the transcript to show the final grade for the course.
At the end of one year, /Fand IW grades for courses that are not completed or repeated are changed to an For W, respectively.
Good Academic Standing
Good academic standing requires a minimum grade-point average that is determined by the student’s school or college. Grades earned at another institution are not used in calculating the grade-point average at the University of Colorado.
Degree students should consult the academic standards section of their school or college for degree program requirements.
Continuation as a non-degree student is contingent upon maintaining an overall grade-point average of 2.0 upon completion of 12 or more semester hours.
Failure to maintain the required average will result in a non-degree student being suspended. The suspension is for an indefinite period of time and becomes part of the student’s permanent record at the University. While under suspension, enrollment at the University is restricted to summer terms or courses offered through Extended Studies.
Non-degree students are not placed on academic probation prior to being suspended.
GRADE-POINT AVERAGE
The grade-point average (GPA) is computed by multiplying the credit points per hour (for example, B t= 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, ***, WJPJW, and IF are not included in the grade-point average. IFs that are not completed within one year are calculated as Fin the GPA.
If a course is repeated, all grades earned are used in determining the grade-point
average. Grades received at another institution are not included in the University of Colorado GPA.
Undergraduate and graduate GPAs are calculated separately.
Students should refer to their academic dean’s office for individual grade-point average calculations as they relate to academic progress and graduation from their college or school.
Grade Reports
Grade reports are normally available within two weeks after the end of the semester. Grade reports are automatically mailed at the end of each semester to student’s permanent mailing address. Grades posted to the computer can be heard using the phone system. See the Schedule of Courses for more information.
Mid-Term Grades
Instructors will assign mid-term grades for certain populations of students. Students in academic difficulty may be contacted and counseled about support services available to them. Please note: academic support services are available to all students through the Center for Educational Opportunity Programs,
NC 2012, (303) 556-2065, or the Student Advocacy Center, NC 2012, (303) 556-2546.
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 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.
Graduation

Notification of Rights Under FERPA at University of Colorado at Denver
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their educational records. They are:
1. The right to inspect and review the student’s educational records within 45 days of the day that the University receives a request for access. Students should submit to the registrar, dean, head of the academic department,
or other appropriate official written requests that identify the record(s) they wish to inspect. The University official will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the University official to whom the request was submitted, that official shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
2. The right to request the amendment of the student’s educational records that the student believes are inaccurate or misleading. Students may ask the University to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading. They should write the University official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it
is inaccurate or misleading. If the University decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the University will notify the student of the decision and advise the student of his or her right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.
3. The right to consent to disclosure
of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s educational records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One exception which permits
disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the University in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the University has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an educational record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility. Upon request, the University discloses educational records without consent to officials of another school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll.
4. The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the University of Colorado to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA is:
Family Policy Compliance Office U.S. Department of Education 400 Maryland Avenue, SW Washington, D.C. 20202-4605
The following items are designated “Directory Information,” and may be released at the discretion of the University of Colorado unless a student files a request to prevent its disclosure:

Extended Studies Programs
The Extended Studies Programs at CU-Denver offer continuing and non-traditional education. They employ both alternative delivery systems and traditional methods to make high-quality learning experiences accessible to Colorado's diverse population. Extended Studies Programs are responsible for the administration of all classes conducted off the Auraria campus as well as many of those conducted in non-traditional formats on campus, such as weekends. Although they are not academic units and do not grant degrees, courses and programs offered through Extended Studies Programs do enhance and supplement traditional degree programs at the University. Students with certain registration or scheduling difficulties can take courses applicable to their degree programs through Extended Studies. Courses offered through Extended Studies are identical to those offered through the regular Schedule of Courses and are recorded on a standard CU-Denver transcript along with any other classes taken through the University.
Students may want to consider taking classes through the Extended Studies programs under the following circumstances:
1. Not formally admitted to the University. Prospective CU-Denver students need not wait for formal admission to the University to begin taking classes if they enroll in Extended Studies courses. Students who have not been formally admitted to the University can, in many cases, enroll in Extended Studies classes and transfer those credit hours (with departmental approval) to a degree program when they are formally admitted. (Students planning to explore this option should check with the department through which they intend to pursue their degrees to determine how many Extended Studies credits will be transferrable.)
2. Scheduling conflicts. Students who are balancing family and work obligations, in addition to college, can take


38 / General Information
Extended Studies courses that fit their schedules. Many classes are offered in the evenings and on weekends. Depending upon the student's choice of degree programs, it may be possible to obtain an undergraduate degree from CU-Denver by attending only evening and/ or weekend classes through Extended Studies. Students are encouraged to contact an academic advisor in their chosen discipline or an advisor in the Extended Studies programs to discuss the options available to them.
3. Academic suspension. Each academic unit of the University has established its own policies regarding students who are placed on academic suspension. When those policies allow, students on academic suspension may take a certain number of credit hours (as established by the appropriate academic unit) through Extended Studies to improve their grade-point averages. Students must check with an academic advisor in their chosen discipline to determine whether this option is open to them.
In addition to credit courses, Extended Studies Programs offer a variety of noncredit courses for both personal enrichment and professional credentialing. Practicing professionals in business, engineering, public affairs, architecture and planning, and education are encouraged to contact the appropriate CU-Denver school or college for information on courses applicable to continuing professional education, certification, and licensure.

CU-Denver credit can be earned abroad, affording students the opportunity to fulfill degree requirements while experiencing a new culture. Programs are available for students in all disciplines in a variety of countries in Eastern and Western Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa, India, and Latin America.
As financial aid can be used for study abroad, and our programs very affordable, it is a feasible option for almost every student. Although many language programs are available, the majority of programs are taught in English; thus, no foreign language is required for participation. Information and advice on scholarships such as Fulbright and NSEP, as well as volunteer and work opportunities abroad, is available.
Study abroad programs vary in length from two weeks to one academic year. Students can pay CU-Denver tuition and study abroad on exchange for an academic semester or year.

INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ADVISING AND SUPPORT SERVICES
OIE realizes that the first few months in a new country and a new city are particularly difficult for international students. In order to ease the transition, OIE provides a full-day orientation for new international students before each semester begins.
All international students meet with the International Student Advisor in OIE upon arrival in Denver to have visas and other paperwork reviewed and copied. OIE provides a friendly ear and a place to ask questions and express concerns about all kinds of issues, including U.S. social customs.

International Training Academy
The International Training Academy (1TA) was developed in 1994 to assist public and private agencies throughout the global community in realizing their training goals. This mission is reflected in such Academy projects as Foundations of Counseling, a post-graduate counseling psychology course that ITA offers on the Internet, and the DAV Training Academy, a program that provides disabled veterans the training they need to become National Service Officers and promote the needs of their fellow veterans. These and other training endeavors help promote education and advancement among individuals for whom such opportunities are not always readily available.
ITA is also an active contributor to the New Urban University initiative at CU-Denver. Older, well-established programs like the National Veterans' Training Institute (NVTI) combine with enterprising new ones such as Colorado Works (welfare reform training for staff of the Colorado Department of Human Services) and the Latino/a Research and Policy Center (LRPC) to give something back to the people and communities who host ITA and the University so well. These programs aim to help develop the knowledge and skills that people in
Denver and beyond need to build their urban communities into strong, sustainable metropolitan areas.
Funding for all of these and other programs implemented by the International Training Academy has come from a variety of sources. Federal agencies like the United States (U.S.) Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Labor, and the Department of Veterans Affairs have sponsored ITA programs, as have state agencies like the Colorado Department of Human Services. These public sector efforts have been complemented by contracts and grants from private sector entities such as the Disabled American Veterans and other nonprofit organizations. The International Training Academy both gives to and receives from many different social groups and institutions in the global community.

Sexual Harassment
The University of Colorado at Denver is a collegial academic community whose mission requires an open learning and working environment for students, faculty, staff, and administrators. An open learning and working environment values and protects individual dignity and the integrity of human relationships. CU-Denver’s educational process is based upon mutual trust, freedom of inquiry, freedom of expression, and the absence of intimidation and exploitation. As a place of work and study, CU-Denver must be free of inappropriate and disrespectful conduct and communication of a sexual nature, of sexual harassment, and of all forms of sexual intimidation and exploitation. Such behavior is reprehensible because it subverts the mission of CU-Denver, poisons the environment, and threatens the careers, educational experiences, and well-being of students, faculty, staff, and administrators.
It is a violation of CU-Denver’s Sexual Harassment Policy for anyone who is authorized to recommend or take action affecting faculty, staff, students, or administrators to make any unwelcome sexual advances, to request sexual favors, or to engage in any other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when (1) submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s employment or status in a course, program, or activity; (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as the basis for employment or educational decisions affecting that individual; or (3) such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work performance or educational experience, or creates an intimidating, hostile, or offensive environment for working or learning.

University Policy on Drugs and Alcohol
The University of Colorado at Denver recognizes the health risks associated with the use of illicit drugs and the abuse of alcohol, and is committed to providing a drug-free educational environment and drug-free workplace which supports the research, teaching, and service mission of the University. This Denver Campus policy statement on drugs and alcohol is designed to address the University’s concerns about substance abuse and to ensure the CU-Denver community complies with the Federal Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988 (the “Drug-Free Workplace Act”) and the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act Amendments of 1989 (the “Drug-Free Schools Act”). These Acts require the University, as a recipient of federal funds, to take measures to combat the abuse of drugs and alcohol. The continuation of federal financial support for our campus’ students, as well as our academic programs and academic support services programs, is based upon compliance with these statutes and their regulations.
The University of Colorado at Denver Policy on Drugs and Alcohol prohibits the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensation, possession, or use of any controlled substance (illicit drugs of any kind or amount) and the abuse of alcohol by students and employees on University property or as part of any of its activities. This prohibition covers any individual’s actions which are part of any University activities, including those occurring while on University property or in the conduct of University business away from the campus.
It is a violation of University policy for any member of the faculty, staff, or student body to jeopardize the operation or interest of the University of Colorado at Denver through the use of alcohol or drugs. Those individuals found to be in violation are engaged in serious misconduct and are subject to legal sanctions under local, state, or federal law, and are also subject to disciplinary action consistent with the Code of Student Conduct, the Faculty Handbook (1988), applicable rules of the State Personnel System, and the University’s Unclassified Staff Handbook. Sanctions that will be imposed by the University of Colorado at Denver for employees who are found to be in violation of this policy may include requiring satisfactory participation in a substance abuse treatment, counseling, or education program as a condition of continued

In addition, any employee who is convicted of a violation of any criminal drug law occurring in the workplace must report that conviction to his or her immediate supervisor within five days.
The Drug-Free Workplace Act makes strict compliance with this policy statement a condition of employment on all federal grants and contracts. Within ten days of learning of a drug conviction resulting from workplace activities of any individual engaged in work under grants or contracts funded by a federal agency, the University of Colorado at Denver is required to notify the relevant funding agency that a violation of this policy statement has occurred.

Academic Honor Code and Discipline Policies
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY
A university’s reputation is built on a standing tradition of excellence and scholastic integrity. As members of the University of Colorado at Denver academic community, faculty and students accept the responsibility to maintain the highest standards of intellectual honesty and ethical conduct in completing all forms of academic work at the University.
FORMS OF ACADEMIC DISHONESTY
Students are expected to know, understand, and comply with the ethical standards of the University. In addition, students have an obligation to inform the appropriate official of any acts of academic dishonesty by other students of the University. Academic dishonesty is defined as a student’s use of unauthorized assistance with intent to deceive an instructor or other such person who may be assigned to evaluate the student’s work in meeting course and degree requirements. Examples of academic dishonesty include, but are not limited to, the following:
A. Plagiarism
Plagiarism is the use of another person’s distinctive ideas or words without acknowledgement. The incorporation of another person’s work into one’s own requires appropriate identification and acknowledgement, regardless of the means of appropriation. The following are considered to be forms of plagiarism when the source is not noted:
1. Word-for-word copying of another
person’s ideas or words
2. The mosaic (the interspersing of one’s own words here and there while, in essence, copying another’s work)
3. The paraphrase (the rewriting of another’s work, yet still using their fundamental idea or theory)
4. Fabrication (inventing or counterfeiting sources)
5. Submission of another’s work as one’s own
6. Neglecting quotation marks on material that is otherwise acknowledged
Acknowledgement is not necessary when the material used is common knowledge.
B. Cheating
Cheating involves the possession, communication, or use of information, materials, notes, study aids, or other devices not authorized by the instructor in any academic exercise, or communication with another person during such an exercise. Examples of cheating are:
1. Copying from another’s paper or receiving unauthorized assistance from another during an academic exercise or in the submission of academic material
2. Using a calculator when its use has been disallowed
3. Collaborating with another student or students during an academic exercise without the consent of the instructor
C. Fabrication and Falsification
Fabrication involves inventing or counterfeiting information, i.e., creating results not obtained in a study or laboratory experiment. Falsification, on the other hand, involves the deliberate alteration or changing of results to suit one’s needs in an experiment or other academic exercise.
D. Multiple Submission
This is the submission of academic work for which academic credit has already been earned, when such submission is made without instructor authorization.
E. Misuse of Academic Materials
The misuse of academic materials includes, but is not limited to, the following:
1. Stealing or destroying library or reference materials or computer programs
2. Stealing or destroying another student’s notes or materials, or having such materials in one’s possession without the owner’s permission


University Policies / 43
3. Receiving assistance in locating or using sources of information in an assignment when such assistance has been forbidden by the instructor
4. Illegitimate possession, disposition, or use of examinations or answer keys to examinations
5. Unauthorized alteration, forgery, or falsification of academic records
6. Unauthorized sale or purchase of examinations, papers, or assignments
F. Complicity in Academic Dishonesty
Complicity involves knowingly contributing to another’s acts of academic dishonesty.
PROCEDURES IN CASES OF SUSPECTED ACADEMIC DISHONESTY
All matters of academic policy, including academic dishonesty, are under the jurisdiction of each of the University’s schools and colleges pursuant to Article 1X2.B and Article VI.C of the Laws of the Regents. Accordingly, each school and college has established procedures for addressing matters of academic dishonesty and for determining the severity and consequences of each infraction. Students should contact their school or college for standards and/or procedures specific to their school or college. As a general rule, all school and college procedures contain the following requirements and provisions:
A. Faculty, staff members, or students may submit charges of academic dishonesty against students. A student who has evidence that another student is guilty of academic dishonesty should inform the instructor or the dean of the college of the charge in writing.
B. A faculty member who has evidence that a student is guilty of academic dishonesty should confront the student with the evidence. In cases of academic dishonesty, the faculty member has the authority to reprimand the student appropriately, which could include the issuance of a failing grade (F). If the faculty member elects to reprimand the student for academic dishonesty by issuing a failing grade, the faculty member shall submit a written report to the dean of the appropriate college within five (5) working days. The report shall include, but is not limited to, the time, place, nature of the offense(s),
the name(s) of the accused, the name(s) of the accuser(s), and witnesses (if any). If the faculty member feels that her/his reprimand is an insufficient sanction for a particular case of academic dishonesty, the faculty member may recommend to the dean of the appropriate college that further action be taken.
C. In cases where the faculty member has recommended further action in a case of academic dishonesty, the dean or a designated committee shall schedule a disciplinary hearing as soon as possible. The student(s) accused of academic dishonesty shall be notified in writing of the specific charge(s). The student(s) also has (have) the right to have a representative present for advice, and to be present during the proceedings. The student(s) must notify the dean of the appropriate college five (5) working days before the hearing of the intent to have legal counsel present at the hearing.

• Place the student(s) on disciplinary probation for a specified period
of time
• Suspension of registration at CU-Denver, including Extended Studies, for a specified period of time
• Expulsion: No opportunity to return to the school or college in which the infraction occurred
• Take no further action against the accused student(s)
A record of the action taken shall be kept in the committee’s confidential file and a copy sent to the Registrar
E. In all cases, the student(s) shall be notified of the dean’s or committee’s decision within seven (7) working days.
F. If a student wishes to appeal a case, the student should request the procedures for doing so from his or her school or college.
G. Students who are taking courses at the University of Colorado at Denver, but are enrolled at one of the other educational institutions on the Auraria campus and are charged with academic dishonesty, are subject to the same procedures and sanctions outlined above.
SUMMARY
Questions regarding academic integrity should be directed to the dean’s office of the college or school in which the student is enrolled.

UNIVERSITY STANDARDS AND CRIMINAL VIOLATIONS
As a member of the University community, you are held accountable not only for upholding civil and criminal laws, but University standards as well. Enrollment does not confer either immunity or special consideration with reference to civil and criminal laws. Disciplinary action by the University will not be subject to challenge or postponement on the grounds that criminal charges involving the same incident have been dismissed, reduced, or are pending in civil or criminal court.
In addition, the University reserves the right to pursue disciplinary action if a student violates a standard and withdraws from the University before administrative action is final.
USE OF UNIVERSITY/AURARIA PROPERTY OR FACILITIES
Nothing in this Code of Conduct shall be construed to prevent peaceful and orderly assembly for the voicing of concerns or grievances. The University is dedicated to the pursuit of knowledge through a free exchange of ideas, and this shall be a cardinal principle in the determination of whether or not a proposed use of University facilities is appropriate.
The Auraria Higher Education Center has established campus regulations and procedures governing the use of CU-Denver/Auraria grounds, buildings, and other facilities. Such regulations are designed to prevent interference with University functions and activities.
Except where otherwise specifically authorized, or when members of the public are invited, the use of CU-Denver/ Auraria facilities shall be limited to faculty, staff, and students of the CU-Denver/ Auraria campus, and to organizations having chapters, local groups, or other recognized University-connected representation among faculty, staff, or students of the three academic institutions on the Auraria campus.
CLASSROOM CONDUCT
Students are expected to conduct themselves appropriately in classroom situations. If disruptive behavior occurs in a classroom, an instructor has the authority to ask the disruptive student to leave the classroom. Should such disorderly or disruptive conduct persist, the instructor should report the matter to Auraria Public Safety and/or the appropriate Dean’s office. The appropriate Dean or his/her representative may withdraw a student from a particular class
for disruptive behavior, while the Student Discipline Committee may recommend to the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs to suspend, permanently expel, and/or permanently exclude the student from the campus. Appeal questions concerning disruptive behavior should be directed to the Academic Dean’s office when withdrawal from a class is involved, and to the Director of Student Life when suspension or expulsion from the University is involved.

3. Stop interference in any manner with the public or private rights of citizens on CU-Denver/Auraria owned or controlled property.
4. Stop actions that are threatening to the health or safety of any person.
5. Stop actions that are destroying or damaging property of the CU-Denver/ Auraria campus, its students, faculty, staff, or guests.
PERMANENT RECORD NOTATIONS
While disciplinary proceedings are pending or contemplated, a temporary hold may be placed on the student’s academic record. It will not be released until all actions and appeal procedures have been completed or finalized by the University. Only in those cases where suspension, deferred suspension, or permanent expulsion results from disciplinary action will notations be placed on the academic record.
RELEASE OF DISCIPLINARY INFORMATION
Access to any student’s academic transcript or disciplinary file shall be governed by provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. Only the student charged or those


46 / General Information
University officials who have a legitimate educational interest in disciplinary information may have access to the files. All other inquiries, including but not limited to employers, governmental agencies, news media, friends, or Denver Police, must have a written release from the student to gain access to University disciplinary files.
Every effort will be made by the University to respect the privacy of the student. However, where the identity of the student has been publicly disclosed in the news media, the University reserves the right to respond as it deems appropriate to describe fairly and accurately the disposition of disciplinary matters.
REFUND POLICY AFTER DISCIPLINARY ACTION
Submission of registration materials obligates the student to pay the assessed tuition and fees for that term. If a student is suspended or expelled from the University, the amount of tuition/fees which would be refunded would be the same as when a student voluntarily withdraws from a term. See the Tuition and Fees section of this catalog or the Schedule of Courses for more information.
The official withdrawal date applicable for tuition/fee refund purposes will be the date of the Student Discipline Committee’s decision. In the event that circumstances are such that the accused student has registered for a subsequent term before the final decision is made, that student does so at his/her own risk and may be liable for payment of tuition and fees for both terms. The Committee will make the decision as to when official suspension or expulsion begins. Failure to make the required payment will result in the following actions: students will become ineligible for all University services; no grades will be issued for courses in progress; no transcripts, diplomas, certification, or registration materials will be issued for the student until the bill is paid in full; and a late payment charge, in addition to the interest on the unpaid balance, will be assessed.
TRI-INSTITUTIONAL VIOLATIONS
Procedures in deciding violations of the Code of Student Conduct involving students from other academic institutions on the Auraria campus have been developed by CU-Denver and the institution(s) involved. In such cases, the Director of Student Life should be contacted.

Faculty coordinators from each of the University’s colleges and schools act as liaisons between the Center and the academic departments. The Center currently places some 600 students each year with some 300 participating employers. Over 30 percent of all students placed are graduate students.
Cooperative Education
Cooperative education is an educational method which combines classroom study with paid, career-related, off-campus work. The purpose is to give students the opportunity to apply what they have learned in the classroom to real world situations, and to bring that experience back to the classroom as a learning tool.
Cooperative education offers students paid long-term positions (two or more semesters). Students alternate semesters of full-time work with semesters of full-time school, or work part time year round. Coop experiences may be eligible for academic credit, and many positions lead to permanent career positions upon graduation.
Internships
Internships offer students short-term positions (one semester) and they are often nonpaid. Internships are always
done for academic credit and are popular with students who like to explore a variety of careers. Many students complete two, three, or even four internships before graduation. Internships, like co-op jobs, are related to the student’s academic studies and/or career goals.
Eligibility for Placement
To qualify for placement in a co-op or internship position, students must be enrolled at least half time in any CU-Denver college or school, have completed their freshman year, have maintained a grade-point average of 2.75 or higher, and have completed at least 12 hours in residence (6 hours for graduate students). Some employers have additional requirements, i.e., U.S. citizenship, willingness to travel, or specific course work.
Participation in any CU-SERVES service day is open to all students. Participation in a service learning placement requires enrollment in a course with a service option or requirement.
Eligibility for Academic Credit
Undergraduate and graduate students placed by the Center in paid or non-paid positions, as well as students who have obtained their own positions, can apply to earn academic credit through courses in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Business and Administration, the College of Engineering and Applied Science, The Graduate School of Public Affairs, Graduate School of Business Administration, and the College of Architecture and Planning. Students can earn internship, cooperative education, experiential learning, field study, or practicum credit through courses established for this purpose.
Why Students Participate
• Students recognize the value of combining theory with practice and find greater relevance in their studies.
• Work experience allows students to test classroom teaching in the laboratory of the real world.
• Co-op positions provide a means of financial assistance that is available to students, regardless of family income levels or other financial aid arrangements, and does not leave students burdened with educational debts.
• The inclusion of a work component and the contribution from co-op earnings are major factors in encouraging first-
generation college students to pursue a college degree.
Why Employers Participate
• Students are an excellent resource for special projects and peak loads or busy seasons.
• The employer can assess an individual’s potential for employment after graduation, thus saving entry-level recruiting costs.
• Student workers can increase productivity of full-time professional staff.
• Students are highly motivated, productive, and dependable workers.
• Students bring knowledge about the latest academic research to their employers.
• As verified by many studies, co-op student interns subsequently become full-time employees with far lower turnover rates and better promotion potential than the average entry-level professional.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE
The College of Architecture and Planning at the University of Colorado at Denver prepares students for careers in architecture, planning, landscape architecture, urban design, and design-related fields. The College offers the only undergraduate and graduate education in these fields in the state of Colorado. Students intending to enter the design and planning professions normally first complete the College’s undergraduate degree as preparation for entry into the College’s graduate- level professional programs. Graduate programs are also available for those who already hold an undergraduate degree in a field unrelated to design or planning. A unique feature of the College is that it offers its 900 students exceptional educational experiences in two distinctive locations. The College’s
graduate programs in architecture, landscape architecture, urban and regional planning, and urban design are taught on the Denver campus of the University of Colorado in the heart of a vital downtown; its undergraduate programs are offered on the Boulder campus in an environment ideally suited to the needs of undergraduate students. A multi-disciplinary Ph.D. in Design and Planning is offered across the two campuses. With a diverse faculty committed to excellence in teaching, research, scholarship, and professional work, the College provides students with a broad range of learning opportunities. For detailed information on the undergraduate programs, see the University of Colorado at Boulder catalog.
Special Activities and Programs
The College provides a diverse range of opportunities which enrich and enhance the education of its students. Through activities and functions-including a lecture series, a visiting critic series, exhibits, publications, and active student organizations-the College encourages contact among students, faculty, and members of the design professions. Each summer, the College offers foreign study-travel programs, which in recent years have traveled to Finland, France, Mexico, Prague, Rome, and Russia. The College makes available a range of scholarships and fellowships, some of which are based on need, others on performance, and still others of which are specifically intended to provide enrichment opportunities. The College supports an active and focused internship program for its students, giving them access to elective internship opportunities in the Denver metropolitan area and beyond. Finally, the College encourages students to take control of their own education and supports, within its ability, any reasonable proposals from students that would enrich their own educational experiences.
College Facilities
The College’s administrative headquarters and graduate programs are located at 1250 14th Street in downtown Denver, on
the northeastern edge of the Auraria campus. This favorable location gives easy access both to the extensive campus facilities, and to the urban amenities of Denver’s lively lower downtown. Most of the major professional design offices in Denver, and many planning firms and agencies, are within easy reach of the College. These provide many opportunities for contact between students and practitioners. College facilities include studio spaces for students, lecture and seminar rooms, design jury spaces, exhibition spaces, and faculty offices.
The College also provides a photographic darkroom and studio, a model and furniture-making woodshop, and an extensive computer lab whose focus is computer-aided design (CAD), computer 2-D and 3-D imaging, and analytic tools for planning. Also located in the College is a Geographic Information System (GIS) computer lab, which is open to all students of the University of Colorado at Denver.
Scholarships/Financial Aid
Students in the College have access to a number of scholarships and other financial assistance funds. Some of these funds are provided by the institution itself, while others are provided by external sources like the American Institute of Architects Education Fund, the American Planning Association, the American Society of Landscape Architects, and the Rocky Mountain Masonry Institute. For further information on these scholarships and graduate tuition awards, please contact the College’s Student Services Officer at (303) 556- 3387. For information on federal and state financial aid, contact the Office of Financial Aid, University of Colorado at Denver, Campus Box 125, P.O. Box 173364, Denver, CO 80217-3364, (303) 556-2886.
ACADEMIC POLICIES Academic Standing
Students must maintain a minimum overall GPA of 3.0 in the graduate programs to remain in good standing and to graduate. If a student’s GPA falls below a 3.0, then he or she will be placed on academic probation beginning the following


56 / College of Architecture and Planning
semester. If the GPA remains below a 3.0 after the probationary semester, then he or she may be dismissed from the College.
Appeals
Any student may appeal the grades he or she receives in a class. The student should first informally discuss the issue with the relevant faculty member and then with the Department Chair or Program Director. If the matter is not resolved this way, the student may initiate an appeal by writing to the faculty member outlining the reasons for the appeal. Copies are to be forwarded to the Department Chair or Program Director and the Dean. The faculty member must respond in writing to the student’s written appeal, with copies to the Department Chair or Program Director and the Dean. An Appeals Committee consisting of three faculty members of the relevant academic program will review the written appeal. The chair of the Appeals Committee will convey its recommendation in writing to the student who has appealed, with copies to the Instructor, the Department Chair or Program Director, and Dean.
Attendance and Timeliness of Work
Students are expected to attend all meetings of classes. Excessive unexcused absences may result in a grade reduction at the discretion of the instructor.
Absence from a class will be excused for verified medical reasons or for extreme personal emergencies. The student may be required to furnish evidence.
Students’ assignments are to be completed in a timely manner. Any assignment turned in late may have its grade reduced by an amount set at the discretion of the instructor. An assignment may be turned in late without penalty for verified medical reasons or for extreme personal emergencies. Students must have their instructor’s written permission to turn an assignment in late. Students with excused late work may turn in the assignment by the end of finals week without penalty. Otherwise, the grade “IF” will be assigned.
Course Sequencing and Advancement
Programs in the College are structured so that certain courses must be taken concurrently, others sequentially. Students will not be allowed to enroll in a course if its co-requisites or prerequisites have not been satisfied.
Originality of Work
Students must submit their own work. Where other sources are used in a student submission, they are to be clearly identified and referenced. The University considers plagiarism and similar acts of falsification to be a serious matter which may result in suspension or expulsion. Information on codes of conduct and grievance procedures are available from the University of Colorado at Denver’s Office of Enrollment and Student Affairs.

PROGRAMS OF STUDY Architecture
Chair, Department of Architecture:
George Hoover
Associate Chair for Graduate Studies:
Diane Wilk
Telephone: (303) 556-3382
The architecture program’s mission is to lead in the discovery, communication, and application of knowledge in the discipline of architecture. The program aims to excel in the education of its students, in the research and creative endeavors of its faculty, and in service to the community. To respond to this mission, the program has developed a unique intellectual, educational, and architectural culture.
First of all, the program celebrates its place in a very special set of landscapes-urbanized Denver and the Front Range, and the spectacular natural landscape of the high plains and the Colorado Rockies. The architecture program therefore focuses not only on the design of buildings, but also on the interactions between buildings and their urban and natural settings.
Secondly, the program examines the interplay between architectural form and the complex cultural and technological context in which architects operate.
As a result of these dominant concerns, the program has created an academic environment that is intellectually stimulating and educationally challenging, and that educates architects who will:
• promote the practice of design as the basis of their architectural and intellectual method;
• assert responsibility for their important role as designers of buildings in their urban and natural settings;
• understand and value the influences of history, theory, ideology, context, technology, and practice on architecture and on urban and rural landscapes;
• define their obligations, their status, their ethical behavior, and their roles as members of an established design discipline and design profession;
• accept, apply, and extend the important professional, intellectual, and design traditions of the discipline;
• be creative, thoughtful, and critical design leaders in the discipline and profession of architecture.
PREREQUISITES
While it is strongly recommended that students complete the prerequisites of college-level trigonometry and physics before entering the program, they must be completed before advancement to the second semester of the first professional Master of Architecture program. Students are also expected to have achieved a basic level of computer literacy, and should be familiar with PC or Apple operating systems.
PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
According to the National Architectural Accrediting Board, which is responsible for accrediting all architecture programs in the United States,
“Most states require that an individual intending to become an architect hold an accredited degree. There are two types of degrees that are accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board: (1) The Bachelor of Architecture, which requires a minimum of five years study, and (2) The Master of Architecture, which requires a minimum of three years of study following an unrelated bachelor’s degree or two years following a related pre-professional bachelor’s degree. These professional degrees are structured to educate those who aspire to registration and licensure to practice as architects. The four-year, pre-professional degree, where offered, is not accredited by NAAB. The pre-professional degree is useful to those wishing a foundation in the field of architecture, as preparation for either continued education in a professional degree program or for employment options in fields related to architecture.”
The professional architecture degree offered by the College of Architecture and Planning is a Master of Architecture. It is fully accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board. To earn this degree, students with a bachelor’s or master’s degree unrelated to architecture must complete a seven- or eight-semester sequence of course work and accumulate a minimum of 114 hours of credit. Students completing the College’s Bachelor of Environmental Design (B. Envd.) on the Boulder campus-or completing a preprofessional degree from another NAAB accredited institution-are given advanced standing in the three-and-one-half-year program, and must complete a minimum of four semesters of course work and accumulate at least 60 hours of credit.
The program’s curriculum is divided into five major components: a 45-credit Design Studies component, a 12-credit


58 / College of Architecture and Planning
Cultural Studies component, an 18-credit Technology Studies component, a 6-credit Professional Studies component, and a 33-credit elective component. Of the 33 elective credits, students must take 9 credits in Cultural Studies, 9 credits in Professional Studies, and 6 credits in Technology Studies; the remaining 9 credits may be any architecturally related course on campus. A wide array of electives in these areas allows students to tailor their graduate studies to their own interests.

Advanced Studies in Architecture and Urbanism
The College of Architecture and Planning has two programs which offer students with established design backgrounds opportunities for advanced study in the fields of architecture and urban design: The Master of Architecture II and the Master of Architecture in Urban Design. Each of these programs has a research orientation and agenda, and their general intent is to create an educational context within which the fundamental practices of architecture and urbanism may be examined, advanced, and extended. The advanced study programs have been designed to be both flexible and interdisciplinary, and through this they provide students with a broad range of options which can accommodate and respond to each student’s own interests and study agenda.
The Master of Architecture II
The Master of Architecture II is an advanced degree program which provides its students with a range of opportunities for exploring and extending their knowledge of the practice of architecture. Students applying for admission to the program must have been awarded a five-or six-year first-professional degree in architecture, and may enter the Master of Architecture II program in any semester of the academic year. The Master of
Architecture II program currently offers five defined focus areas for advanced study:
Design, which asks its students to further their knowledge and understanding of design, design theory and criticism, and advanced design methods and techniques;
Computers in Design, which asks its students to extend their knowledge and understanding of the computer as an effective tool for design generation and development;
Technology, which asks its students to extend their knowledge of the building technologies, and to investigate the impact of current and emerging technologies on the form of buildings;
Real Estate, which asks its students to extend their understanding of the role of politics, finance, and economics as major determinants of design approach and the form of buildings; and
Practice, which asks its students to extend their understanding of the forces and processes which affect the ways in which architecture can and should be practiced.
Each of these options requires students to complete 36 hours of credit in required, recommended, and elective course work to qualify for the award of the Master of Architecture degree. To be eligible for graduation from the program, students must complete 12 credit hours in the degree project sequence, and 12 credit hours in required and/or recommended focus-area course work particular to their area of study.

The Master of Architecture in Urban Design
The Master of Architecture in Urban Design program is a research-oriented, advanced degree program which provides its students with a range of opportunities for exploring and extending their knowledge of the design of the urban environment. The program makes full use of its setting in the heart of downtown Denver, using the city as the laboratory for many of its projects and investigations. It asks students to investigate, explore, and examine the form, morphology, and structure of the city, and to test the range of processes and strategies which guide and inform any interventions in the urban landscape. The program also asks its students to question existing methods and models of intervention, and to develop and propose alternative ideologies and strategies which can be used to resolve the broad range of concerns impacting the growth and evolution of the contemporary city and its complex urban landscape.
There are two options and plans of study for students wishing to enter the urban design program-a 36-credit-hour program and a 60-credit-hour program. Entry into a particular option is determined by prior academic degree and experience.
Students applying for admission to the 36-credit-hour program leading to the award of the degree of Master of Architecture in Urban Design must have been awarded a five- or six-year first-professional degree in architecture, and may enter the Urban Design program in any semester of the academic year.
To be eligible for graduation from the 36-credit-hour program, students must complete 12 credit hours in the degree project sequence, and 15 credit hours in required and/or recommended course work in urban design. The remaining 9 credit hours are elective course work. The typical sequende of course work within the 36-credit-hour option leading to the award of the Master of Architecture in Urban Design degree is:

Landscape Architecture
Program Director Gene Bressler Telephone: (303) 556-3382
The primary mission of the program is to imbue the student with a design ethic for landscape architecture-in its holistic sense of landscape intervention-as a relationship between the abstract and the real, between architecture and landscape, and between art and ecology. The underlying premise or baseline is that the landscape architect strives to design places for people to inhabit, in the artful sense of the word, with a relentless commitment to quality, ethics, and appropriateness. Students will develop a thorough competence in design, design process, and knowledge of landscape technology. The program features particular emphasis upon the holistic understanding of exploration, experimentation, and synthesis as it relates to professional practice, design management, and professional ethics.
The dynamic setting of the University -the urban matrix of Denver and the interface between the Rocky Mountains and the high plains-offers a stimulating educational climate for its students and its faculty. The program places importance on its academic achievements and on its service to the diverse range of cultures, communities, and people as a regional focus for professional design education.
The program prepares the student to enter into the profession with a thorough understanding of its precepts and capability of making judgments through a design process-a method by which one can determine the appropriateness and integration of the natural, aesthetic, social, and cultural parameters of landscape intervention. It infuses the student with a rigor and discipline necessary to execute, implement, evaluate, and critique his or her actions.
PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
The professional program in landscape architecture offered by the University of Colorado at Denver through its College of Architecture and Planning is a Master of Landscape Architecture degree program. It is fully accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB).
Students with an unrelated bachelor’s degree must complete a six-semester sequence of course work and accumulate a minimum of 90 hours of credit to graduate from the program with the accredited first-professional degree. Students completing the College’s Bachelor of

Urban and regional planners in the United States and other countries seek to identify social needs and environmental capacities, anticipate change and its impact on communities, shape the pattern of human settlements, provide essential infrastructure, maintain viable economies, and achieve and preserve sustainable communities that are suitably fit to their natural surroundings. Study in planning considers how social needs are legitimated, knowledge about communities and regions is compiled and analyzed, possible courses of action are evaluated, plans are formulated, implementation is

transacted through the means of education, investment, negotiation and regulation, and how plans’ consequences are tracked over time.
These tasks require a high order of ability: to amass and manipulate information, to represent and model essential phenomena and processes, to simulate futures, and to judge outcomes having diverse dimensions. They also require the ability to portray and communicate key concepts, diagnoses, and actions, and to harness knowledge about all the key actors on the scene in order to understand their needs, motives, and possible responses to the public actions that plans provoke. Underlying these classes of abilities is a base of knowledge that easily overreaches the bounds of any one discipline.
Planners must understand theories regarding urban and regional process, concepts of presentation, communication and negotiation, technologies for the depiction and manipulation of spatial information, means by which to document, judge, and forecast change in urban systems, private economic motives and constraints, the behavioral inclinations of all the major classes of players on the urban scene, the mesh of laws that empower planning and govern private action, and the broader political economy of regional systems.
Needless to say, the education of planners can only begin in the university. It must be a life-long pursuit, and planning programs, including ours, are becoming increasingly supportive of the continuing education needs of professionals. It is the intellectual excitement of this ongoing pursuit of knowledge that draws many to the field.
PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
The Urban and Regional Planning Program offers a curriculum leading to the degree of Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP). It is fully accredited by the national Planning Accreditation Board. With no advanced standing, candidates for the MURP degree must complete a minimum of 51 credit hours of graduate work, including all core courses (27 credit hours), a concentration (15 credit hours minimum), and additional electives (9 credit hours). Entering students who have engaged in the study or practice of planning elsewhere may petition the faculty during their initial semester to determine whether any credit will be awarded or degree requirements relaxed as a result of these prior activities. A maximum of
27 credits of coursework can be applied for advanced standing.
Students who receive the College’s Bachelor of Environmental Design (B. Envd) Degree on the Boulder campus and who have maintained a GPA of at least 3.0 will be admitted into the MURP with advanced standing. These students can earn the MURP degree after completing a minimum of 42 credit hours, which will include the core courses and an approved concentration. Students holding the College’s B. Envd degree who also completed the undergraduate Planning Option with a GPA of at least 3.0 (and with a grade of at least 3.0 in ENVD 4320, Planning Studio III) will, in addition, receive a waiver with credit for URP 6630, Planning Studio I. These students will earn the MURP degree upon completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours, including 21 credit hours of core courses and all requirements for an approved concentration. The above conditions for advanced standing apply only to students who graduated from the College’s undergraduate program within the last five years. Those who graduated earlier may receive advanced standing at the discretion of the Head of the Graduate Program in Urban and Regional Planning, in consultation with Program faculty.

AREAS OF CONCENTRATION
The concentrations and elective courses enable students to explore in depth an area of special interest. Students should, however, build on the expertise which they already possess. This can be done by either focusing on a related specialty, or by increased specialization in a previously acquired area of expertise. The Program currently supports three official concentrations: (1) Physical Planning, (2) Environmental Planning, and (3) Economic Development Planning. A set of “Foundation Courses” is identified
in each concentration, plus additional electives.
Physical Planning Concentration:
Physical planning addresses the spatial arrangement of the environment, from the scale of the project to the scale of the region, and its fitness for human activities. Physical planners establish the policy and regulatory context for design development, practicing as land use or comprehensive planners, or in specialties such as preservation, transportation or open space planning, real estate development, and urban design.
Environmental Planning Concentration: All urban and regional planning actions impact on the environment in some manner, and environmental planners must manage these impacts, both pro-actively and re-actively. The Environmental Planning Concentration introduces planners to the policy and legislative issues surrounding the environmental implications of planning actions, as well as to methods for their assessment, control, and mitigation.
Economic Development Planning Concentration: Economic development aims to amass within communities and regions the resources-jobs, capital, tax base-needed to sustain or improve the quality of life and insure opportunities for all within the private economy, facilitated through appropriate public actions and services. Planners foster economic change as diagnosticians, strategists, and promoters, gauge growth’s effect in light of environmental capacities, manage its social benefits, mitigate its negative consequences, and fashion its imprint on the physical landscape of localities, regions, states, and nations. Students pursuing this concentration should seek as well to become conversant with the essentials of physical or environmental planning.
In addition to the three official concentrations, students have the choice of defining their own concentration. Students may also enroll in our joint degree programs with Public Administration (MPA-MURP) and Landscape Architecture (MLA-MURP). At this writing, we are also exploring dual degrees combining the MURP Degree with the study of both law (JD) and business (MBA). Students may also take up to six credits of independent study, after first assembling a plan of study with one of the regular faculty. Up to three credits of internship may be applied to the 51-credit Program.

Ph.D. in Design and Planning
Program Director: Willem Van Vliet--Telephone: (303) 492-5015
The College’s interdisciplinary doctoral program in Design and Planning examines the complex factors that help shape the planned and constructed environment. The program offers three areas of specialization:
1. Land Use and Environmental Planning and Design
Work in this area focuses on purposeful intervention in the physical environment, including mechanisms and procedures such as land use controls, design review processes and standards, and environmental policies. It also deals with the planning and design of housing, neighborhoods, cities, regions, and the interrelationships among residential, economic, recreational, and transportation systems.
2. Design and Planning Processes and Practices
Work in this area focuses on the theory and methods of planning and design and the development of models and tools to understand and support decision processes and design practices. This area of specialization also includes the examination of practice-related issues such as the development of alternative and appropriate building technologies, energy efficient designs, manufactured housing, and the design/build process.
3. History, Theory, and Criticism of
the Environment
Work in this area involves critical analysis of architecture, urban design, landscape architecture, and planning, and of the theories, processes, and policies that have regulated these fields. Whether focusing on contemporary or past environments, the aim is to understand and explain them in relation to individual and cultural values, and in their cultural and technological contexts.
PREREQUISITES
Applicants must hold at least a bachelor’s degree, although most will have also completed a master’s degree. Field specialization and background are open, and may include architecture, landscape architecture, architectural engineering, urban design, geography, urban economics, environmental law, urban sociology, real estate, management science, computer science, public administration, or environmental psychology.
A successful applicant will have an undergraduate grade-point average of at least 3.0 (out of a possible 4 points), and a graduate grade-point average of 3.5 or better.
If students do not hold a professional or a pre-professional degree in a design or planning field, they will have to completed hours of upper-level undergraduate course work in the College of Architecture and Planning. They will have to obtain in each of these courses a grade of B or higher. These courses are to be chosen from a selected list in consultation with the student’s faculty advisor, and are to be completed within two years of admission to the Program.
A student must have completed 12 hours in an undergraduate program in one of the following prerequisites. The one which applies will depend upon the student’s intended area of specialization. In exceptional cases, a student may complete this requirement by taking additional undergraduate courses and gaining a grade of B or higher in each course. The courses are to be chosen from a selected list in consultation with the student’s faculty advisor, and are to be completed within two years after admission to the Program. They may count toward fulfilling the degree requirements.
• Social and Behavioral Sciences
• Environmental and Natural Sciences
• Engineering
• Humanities
A student must also have completed one of the following prerequisites. The one which applies will depend upon the
student’s intended area of specialization. In exceptional cases, a student may complete this requirement by taking additional undergraduate courses and gaining a grade of B or higher in each of these courses. The courses are to be chosen from a selected list in consultation with the student’s faculty advisor, and are to be completed within two years of admission to the Program. They may count towards fulfilling the degree requirements.
• Statistics. Including probability theory, parametric and nonparametric methods, and acquaintance with basic multivariate techniques. A minimum of 3 hours.
• Mathematics. Including differential equations, finite mathematics, algor data structures, or other appropriate courses. A minimum of 3 hours.
• Language. Ability to read at least one foreign language relevant to the intended dissertation.
• Computer. Background in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) or Geographic Information Systems (G1S). A minimum of 3 hours.
The applicability of a student’s prior course work will be decided by the Graduate Studies Committee upon review of a student’s transcript and additional materials. If the student does not have the requisite educational background, grade-point average, or GRE scores, the student may be admitted on a conditional or provisional basis, and additional course work may be required in accordance with Graduate School rules.
PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
The Ph.D. requires 76 credit hours. Up to 30 transfer credits may be approved for students admitted with a master’s degree. Students in the program will also have to meet the academic residency requirement, which requires six semesters of scholarly work beyond the attainment of an acceptable bachelor’s degree.
Two semesters of residence credit may be allowed for a master’s degree from another institution of approved standing. However, at least four semesters of resident credit, two of which must be consecutive in one academic year, must be earned for work taken at this University. Completion of the program therefore takes 3 or 4 years, depending on prior course work.
The Ph.D. program has five components: (1) Core Curriculum, (2) Research Specialization, (3) Minor Field of Study,
(4) Electives, and (5) Dissertation. The Core of ten hours consists of seminars


Programs of Study / 63
and colloquia on the theories and research methods in the fields of Design and Planning. All students, no matter what their specialization, must take the core in the first two years of their residence.
For the Research Specialization, each student must take at least 12 hours of course work in one of the program’s three specialization areas; i.e., Land Use and Environmental Planning and Design; Design and Planning Processes and Practices; and History, Theory, and Criticism of the Built Environment. One of the courses must be an advanced methods class. The Minor Field of Study provides students with a strong background that supports their chosen research emphasis. It requires completion of at least 12 hours of related course work that provides in-depth knowledge in a relevant area. Elective course work consists of 12 hours of additional study in areas related to the dissertation topic. For the Research Specialization, the Minor Field of Study, and the Electives, students develop an individualized course of study to reflect their specific foci and career aspirations. The required course work is determined jointly by the student, the faculty advisor, and committee members. The Dissertation requires 30 hours of work. Students are expected to define a research question in planning and design,
to identify the research strategy to be used for answering this question, to conduct the research, and to write up the project in the form of a dissertation.
A student is guided in this process by a Dissertation Advisor, and by the additional members who comprise the student’s Dissertation Committee.
EVALUATIONS AND EXAMINATIONS
Successful candidates for the Ph.D. in Design and Planning pass four points of evaluation: (1) Preliminary Exam,
(2) Comprehensive Exam, (3) Doctoral Dissertation, and (4) Final Exam. By the end of the first semester of residence, the student devises a Degree Plan which is approved by the Graduate Studies Committee. A Preliminary Exam then evaluates the student’s initial progress through the program. The Comprehensive Exam is an examination based on papers prepared by the candidate which survey the literature of the field, and which set out a proposed dissertation. This exam takes place after two semesters of residency, and before the student becomes a candidate for the Ph.D. degree.
After advancement to candidacy, the student prepares a Doctoral Dissertation, which offers original research in the student’s chosen field. When the College’s
Dissertation Committee approves the final dissertation submission, it conducts a Final Exam based on the student’s research. This exam is open to the public.
COURSE SEQUENCE
FIRST YEAR
Students develop their degree plan, take five semester hours of the required Core Curriculum, take additional courses in their specialty area, make up any prerequisite courses, and take the Preliminary Exam.
SECOND YEAR
Students take the remaining core courses, continue to take electives in their minor and specialty areas, begin literature surveys, and prepare for their comprehensive exam.
THIRD AND FOURTH YEAR
Students complete their literature surveys, prepare a dissertation proposal, and take the comprehensive exam. After completion of the comprehensive exam, the rest of the third and fourth years is spent researching and writing the dissertation. Once the dissertation has been accepted, students take the final exam.

ACADEMIC PROBATION AND SCHOLASTIC SUSPENSION
Good academic standing in the College requires a cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of 2.0 on all University of Colorado course work. Grades earned in another college or school within the University of Colorado system are used in determining the student’s scholastic standing and progress toward the degree. Grades earned outside the University of Colorado system are not used in calculating the grade-point average at the University of Colorado.
Academic Probation
Students whose cumulative grade-point average falls below a 2.0 at the end of an academic term will be placed on academic probation. Students are informed in writing of scholastic probation. Students on academic probation will be required to achieve a minimum 2.2 grade-point average each semester until their cumulative grade-point average is at least a 2.0, at which time students will be removed from probation.
There is no restriction on the length of time a student can remain in a probation status; however, students must achieve a minimum 2.0 cumulative CU GPA to meet graduation requirements.
Scholastic Suspension
Students on academic probation who do not meet the 2.2 minimum required grade-point average in the succeeding semester will be suspended from the College. Students are informed in writing of scholastic suspension.
A student’s suspension status is permanently indicated on the official University of Colorado transcript, and registration restrictions are imposed.
First Suspension
Students who first fail to meet the academic conditions of probation are placed on first suspension for one calendar year. Students on first suspension may only register for CU-Denver courses offered through the Extended Studies program or during the summer semester.
A student under first suspension may be readmitted before the end of the normal suspension period only if the student has demonstrated academic improvement in one of the following ways:
1. raise the cumulative CU GPA to a minimum of 2.0;
2. achieve a minimum semester GPA of 2.5 with a minimum of 6 semester hours of University of Colorado course work; or
3. attend another college/university and raise to a minimum 2.0 the combination of cumulative CU GPA and cumulative GPA from another institution. Students are removed from first suspension after one year upon written request to the CAM Academic Affairs Committee.

Multimedia Studies
The Multimedia Studies Program is concerned with the history, conceptual process, artistic and logical design, programming, marketing, and legal aspects of the design of electronic media. The Multimedia Studies program is well
placed to take advantage of the combined artistic talents and academic programs in the College of Arts and Media, including the areas of performance music, music technology, film and video, and theater. The program also takes advantage of the inherent professional talent which is part of the multimedia industry prevalent in the surrounding Denver metropolitan area.
The Multimedia Studies Program will appeal to either the student who may not be seeking a traditional degree but wishes to gain and update specific skills in the production of electronic media, or to the student who wishes to attain a four-year undergraduate B.F.A. degree in multimedia which features a strong core component in the liberal arts.
The study of multimedia design can cover the areas of, but not be exclusively tied to, educational distance learning, web page design, kiosk design, training software development, and the creation of interactive digital audio, video, and graphics.
Admission: Incoming freshmen will not be given the chance to declare themselves as multimedia majors until they have completed a successful jury at the end of their freshmen year, and only after being granted permission by the director of the Multimedia Studies Program.
All freshmen will be considered on “pre-major” status until the end of their initial year. Acceptance into the Multimedia Studies Program is not guaranteed.
Incoming transfer students will not be given the chance to declare themselves as multimedia majors until they have completed a successful jury at the end of their first complete year in the program, and only after permission by the director of the Multimedia Studies Program has been granted. Acceptance into the Multimedia Studies Program is not guaranteed.
All students interested in applying for multimedia major status are encouraged to develop creative work which is of an electronic nature as well as in areas of the traditional arts: photography, music, painting, video and film, drawing and theater.
Academic Policies: Each student majoring in Multimedia will attend a personal jury at the end of each academic year.
At this time, the faculty will assess and advise the student on all areas of their progress in the program. Each student will be given objective prospects for their continuation in the Multimedia Studies Program.

The Department of Visual Arts offers courses in the discipline of Fine Arts (FA). Majors may choose to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art or Art History, or a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Arts with an emphasis in Drawing, Painting, Photography, or Sculpture.
The pursuit of education in the visual arts develops a comprehensive knowledge of various media, including an understanding of art theory that encourages informed and powerful decisions in the practice of one’s craft. Similarly, the pursuit of art history involves knowledge of the methods and materials of art, as well as the other historical disciplines and methodologies (the history of ideas, culture, philosophy, or religion) that provide insight about the history of art and the image-making process. While the emphasis in the studio area is visual arts practice, the history of art emphasis is on critical writing and analysis.
A variety of opportunities is open to the fine arts major. The degree can be specific preparation for graduate study or a more general background for fields related to the visual arts, including arts administration, museum and gallery work, and art conservation.
Graduating students receiving the B.F.A. degree are required to have a senior show during their last semester of study.

INFORMATION ABOUT THE COLLEGE
Located in the heart of the Rocky Mountain business community, the College of Business and Administration at the University of Colorado at Denver provides its students with the knowledge and skills necessary to become effective, responsible business professionals. This level of excellence in higher education is achieved by bringing together nationally recognized faculty and highly motivated, mature students in an intellectually challenging academic environment.
CU-Denver’s College of Business is a “research institution,” and our faculty
are nationally recognized for their contributions to scholarly research as well as for their teaching skills. Accordingly, our students have the opportunity to be on the leading edge of business management theory and practice.
Our class schedules and curriculum offer flexibility to meet the needs of full-and part-time students, with both day and evening classes. Whether they are experienced working professionals seeking advanced degrees, or preparing for new careers in the business world, students will gain the knowledge and perspective necessary to succeed in today’s challenging business environment.
CU-Denver’s College of Business can give students an edge over their competition.
College of Business and Administration Educational Goals
CU-Denver’s College of Business and Administration is committed to superb teaching, connecting theory to practice that focuses on:
• current and relevant knowledge and skills necessary for success in the highly competitive global business environment;
• experience in cooperative and team-based work skills;
• integrated professional and functional expertise; and
• sensitivity to cultural and ethnic diversity.
Our graduate programs serve both traditional and non-traditional students who have extensive work experience.
The M.B.A. serves the needs of students who desire a general management education. The professionally oriented M.S. degrees serve the needs of students who desire greater specialization, and particularly students who have already obtained an undergraduate business degree. Large segments of our graduate students will be drawn from national and international locales.
Our undergraduate program, which also serves both traditional and non-traditional students, leads to a baccalaureate degree in business with a substantial


76 / College of Business and Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration
liberal arts component. The program is closely linked, through articulation agreements, to lower-division programs offered by Colorado’s four-year and community colleges. The majority of undergraduates come from the Denver metropolitan area.
Key elements of our academic programs are the provision of quality career advising and placement services, and flexible schedules and programs to meet a wide range of student needs. We are committed to assisting our students’ efforts to pursue rewarding careers.
Faculty
Our nationally recognized faculty is vigorous and enthusiastic about its teaching and research. Faculty members hold degrees from the nation’s leading business schools, including Berkeley, Harvard, Stanford, University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania, UCLA, and Yale. Many of them also bring years of valuable experience in private industry. Their interdisciplinary expertise, academic achievements, scholarly research, and business experience provide students with a dynamic learning environment.
Students
Unlike the students at a traditional college campus, many of our students are adult, working professionals who maintain full-time employment. Their success and experience enrich class discussions and interactions among students. Although a high percentage attend evening classes, a significant number are full-time students attending classes offered during the day. Following the current national trend, women constitute about one-half of the student body. Since admission standards are among the highest in the region, the student body is unusually motivated and talented.
This rich mix of backgrounds, experience, and perspectives, when coupled with the strengths of our excellent faculty, fosters stimulating classroom interaction and keen competition among the students.
Accreditation
CU-Denver’s College of Business is one of the few schools in the state accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Business Week wrote recently, “Today, just having the degree isn’t as important as where you get it.... As corporations become sawier buyers of... talent, they are giving more
weight to the AACSB seal... Accreditation shows that a Business School cares about the quality of its program.” In addition, CU-Denver’s accounting program has also received separate accreditation by AACSB. Prospective students should note that only two state-funded schools in Colorado have received such additional accreditation of their accounting programs.
In a similar manner, our program in health administration is accredited by the Accrediting Commission on Education for Health Services Administration (ACEHSA). This agency ensures that health administration programs meet demanding requirements for quality education in the health administration area.
Entrepreneurship
The Richard H. and Pamela S. Bard Center for Entrepreneurship Development offers a three-semester certificate program, internships, and accelerated courses designed to develop the kind of entrepreneurial skills required by businesses of all types. The program may be taken for college credit by degreeseeking graduate students. Persons from various disciplines, not just business, are encouraged to participate. The Board of Advisors is available for mentorship, and a venture-capital fund will help graduates launch their own businesses. Anyone interested is invited to visit the Center, located on the downtown mall in the Masonic Building, 535 16th Street, third floor. Or call the Executive Director at (303) 620-4050.
Professional Development
The College of Business offers credit, certificate, and non-credit public programs and in-house, customized training programs which provide a functional business education to Denver metropolitan area businesses and individuals. Experienced instructors teach a variety of high-quality, practical classes that are designed to meet the specific needs of business. For more information, contact the Director of Professional Development, Ruth Crowley, at (303) 556-5826 or fax to (303) 556-5920.
Internships
Internships/Cooperative Education is a program designed to provide students with practical work experience in a business setting. This program allows students to put classroom education into
use. The work experience gained through an internship can contribute to an individual’s success.
HOW INTERNSHIPS WORK
In partnership with the CU-Denver Center for Internships and Cooperative Education, the College of Business and Administration offers a selective program allowing students to receive a maximum of three semester hours of elective credit (undergraduate or graduate) for internships with participating organizations. Internships complement the academic program, and may lead to permanent career opportunities. Upon successful completion, a grade of P (Pass) is recorded.
Note: Business students are limited to completing a maximum of six semester hours of individualized instruction which includes independent study credits in combination with internship credits.
ELIGIBILITY FOR PLACEMENT
The general requirements for internships are as follows:
• Undergraduate students must be admitted to the College, be in good standing with at least a 3.2 cumulative GPA, and have completed at least
15 hours of the business core at CU-Denver.
• Graduate students must be admitted to the School, be in good standing with at least a 3.3 GPA, and have completed 21 semester hours of graduate work. Interested students should contact
the appropriate program director or the Center for Internships and Cooperative Education for further details about the program.
Scholarships and Financial Aid
Many programs for financial aid are administered by the Office of Financial Aid. Call (303) 556-2886 for detailed information. The College of Business awards some departmental and general scholarships. The amounts of the awards and the number of awards vary.
Each academic year, a number of undergraduate students are awarded Deans’ Scholarships, Colorado Scholarships, the Dean’s Community College Scholarships, the Business Board of Advisors Scholarships, Virginia T. Schuman Scholarships, and Regents Scholarships. These provide financial support for a portion of the students’ tuition and fees. For additional information, contact the Undergraduate Programs Office, (303) 556-5800.


Academic Policies / 77
Annually, graduate tuition awards are available to students admitted to the Graduate School of Business Administration, based on a number of factors, including academic performance. Graduate students may be eligible for the Virginia T. Schuman Scholarships, the Dean’s Scholarships, the Coulter Foundation Scholarship in Entrepreneurial Studies and Business, and the Carolyn Lee Henderson Scholarship. For more information contact the Graduate Programs Office at (303) 556-5900.

Study Abroad
Transfer credit from study abroad programs requires prior written approval from the undergraduate or graduate programs directors. Students must meet with a business staff advisor to determine
course acceptability prior to the semester in which they intend to study abroad. Information on the various programs is available at the Office of International Education.
Institute for International Business
The Institute for International Business (IIB) was created in 1988 by the Board of Regents of the University of Colorado to serve as a center for the advanced study and teaching of international business. In 1993, the Institute was designated a Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) by the U.S. Department of Education, one of only 25 such centers of excellence in the U.S. Through the CIBER and other funding sources, the Institute strives to help the faculties of the College of Business and other University departments in internationalizing curriculum, programs, certificates, or other student-oriented endeavors. The IIB works in other ways to support faculty in their teaching, research, and development activities. In addition, the Institute designs and facilitates customized international programs and training for business, cooperates with other organizations to offer seminars and conferences, and publishes a quarterly newsletter to familiarize the Denver and regional communities with international business issues. Such initiatives help faculty, students, and the business community to acquire the skills and expertise needed to be successful in our increasingly global economy. The Institute also conducts and promotes research on the global economic aspects of competitiveness.
Call (303) 556-4738 for information.

Students are expected to know and fulfill all prerequisite requirements, including any prerequisite information when registering. The College reserves the right to administratively drop students who enroll without the correct prerequisites. Generally, students who are administratively dropped or withdrawn will not receive tuition refunds.
Course Numbering
The course numbering system used at the University of Colorado at Denver identifies the class standing required for enrollment. Students are expected to take 1000-level courses in their freshman year, 2000-level courses in their sophomore year, 3000-level courses in their junior year, and 4000-level courses in their senior year. Courses at the 5000 and 6000 level are restricted to graduate business students.

An IF grade is assigned only when documented circumstances clearly beyond the student’s control prevent completion of course requirements (exams, papers, etc.). Students must sign a contract outlining how they will make up the missing work with the instructor giving the IF. Students may not register for the class a second time. All IF grades must be made up within the contract period (which may not exceed one year), or the /Twill automatically be changed to the grade of F.
Also, IF 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.
Grade Changes. Grades as reported by instructors are final. Grade changes will be considered only in cases of documented clerical errors or when a student is making up an incomplete grade (IF). All changes must be made within one year after the course has been taken, unless highly unusual circumstances can be documented and the change has been approved by the College. Normally, grade changes will not be considered for any circumstances after three years.
Pass-Fail or No Credit (Audit). With the exception of internships and independent studies, the College of Business does not permit election of pass-fail grading for any business course required for the degree. Only non-degree status students may petition to audit a business class for a grade of NC (no credit).

Undergraduate Admissions
Telephone: (303) 556-5800 Fax: (303) 556-5904
Admission of Freshman Students. Freshman applicants must have completed the college preparatory curriculum in high school, graduated in the top 25% of their high school class, and achieved a score of at least 26 on the ACT or 1100 on the SAT. See the General Information section of this catalog for further information on freshman admission.
Admission of Transfer Students. Applicants who have completed work at other collegiate institutions should review the information on transfer students in the General Information section of this catalog. In addition to University policies, the College of Business and Administration evaluates course work to determine its appropriateness for the degree of Bachelor of Science (Business Administration). Students who have completed more than 24 semester hours of transferable course work are evaluated for admission on the basis of their college grade-point average (GPA) without regard to their high school performance.
To be fully considered for admission to the College of Business and Administration, a transfer student must have a minimum cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale for all college
course work attempted. Transfer applicants seeking priority admission must have a minimum 3.0 GPA for all work applicable to the Bachelor of Science (Business Administration) degree, and a 2.0 GPA in business courses. Students with less than an overall 3.0 GPA can be admitted if they have a 3.0 in the last 24 semester hours of applicable course work, a 2.0 GPA in business courses, and at least a 2.0 overall GPA in courses applying to the degree.
Transfer applicants who do not meet either of the priority admission standards are pooled and ranked on the basis of their GPA earned in the last 24 hours. Pooled applicants are offered admission as space is available. For information about specific policies on transfer of credit, consult an undergraduate business staff advisor.
Intra-university Transfer. Students who want to transfer to the College of Business and Administration from another college or school of the University of Colorado at Denver must formally apply to the College of Business. Transfer deadlines are August 1 for fall semester, December 1 for spring semester, and May 1 for the summer session.
Students will be evaluated only on course work that applies to the business degree program. Generally, this will exclude course work'of a technical or vocational nature and courses in activity PE and remedial subjects. Students who have completed at least 24 applicable semester hours will be evaluated on their college work; students with fewer than 24 transferable hours will be evaluated on the basis of both high school and college work.
Students will be considered for admission on either their overall GPA in applicable course work from CU and all previous institutions or on their last 24 hours. Applicants with less than a
2.0 GPA in business courses (from CU
or other institutions) and overall CU GPA of less than 2.0 will be denied admission even though they meet the minimum requirements for consideration.
Students will receive priority consideration for admission to the College of Business if they have an overall GPA of
3.0 or an overall GPA of 3.0 on their last 24 hours. All other applicants meeting the minimum requirements for admission as stated above will be pooled and ranked on the basis of their GPA in the last 24 hours. Pooled applicants will be offered admission as space is available.
To apply for an intra-university transfer, students must submit an Intra-University
Transfer form and the CU-Denver transcripts to a business staff advisor. Transfer forms are available at CU-Denver Office of Admissions or the College of Business office; transcript request forms are available at the CU-Denver Records Office. 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).
Former Students. ACU student from another campus, or a CU-Denver student who has not registered for three consecutive semesters (summers included), is considered a former student and must reapply for admission. Former CU-Denver business degree students will be automatically readmitted to the College for up to three years from the semester they last attended if they are in good standing (not on probation or suspension) in the College. Students who have not attended for more than three years, or who have completed the equivalent of 12 or more semester hours at another institution of higher education, must meet the admission and degree requirements applicable at the time they reapply.
Old Work Policy. For students newly admitted to the College of Business and former business students readmitted to the College after an absence of three semesters, applicable credits up to five years old will be counted toward business degree requirements. Courses more than five years old will be evaluated individually for their current relevance to the degree program. Students may be required to update their knowledge by taking additional courses when past courses are outdated; in such cases, credit will be given for both courses. Generally, business courses more than ten years old will not apply toward degree credit.
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. Persons who have already earned an undergraduate degree in business may not apply for a second undergraduate degree in business. Applications are available through the Office of Admissions.
If a student has an academic record that justifies consideration for a graduate program, that student is encouraged to apply for one of the Graduate School of Business Administration master’s degree programs. Call (303) 556-5900


80 / College of Business and Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration
for information or refer to the Graduate Business Programs section of the catalog.
Students who are accepted for the second undergraduate degree will be required to pursue courses in the sequence normally required for a business degree. For example, if a student registered for a 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.
Minor in Business Administration. Students in other undergraduate schools and colleges at CU-Denver wishing to take a minor in business administration must have a 3.0 GPA to enter as a business minor, and must have a 2.0 GPA at the time of graduation to receive a minor in business. Prerequisites to the business minor are: ISMG 2000, MATH 1070 or a higher level math course, QUAN 2010 or a statistics class approved by the College of Business, and ECON 2022. Required courses for a business minor are MGMT 1000, ACCT 2200, BLAW 3000, MKTG 3000, FNCE 3100, and MGMT 3300. Twelve of these 18 hours: a) must be taken while in residence at CU-Denver, and b) after admission to the business minor program, if the student has already taken the equivalent of one or more of these courses, other higher level business courses may be substituted with College of Business approval. Up to six of the 18 required business courses may be taken at another institution. Transfer credit will be granted on the same basis that transfer credit is granted for courses taken by business majors.
Double Degree Programs. Numerous career opportunities exist for persons trained in both a specialized field and management. For this reason, students may be interested in combined programs of study leading to completion of degree requirements concurrently in two fields. For additional information, contact an undergraduate business staff advisor at (303) 556-5800.
Undergraduate Advising and Academic Planning
Admissions Advising. Persons not yet admitted to the College of Business can receive advising on course selection, admission requirements, and other matters from an undergraduate staff advisor. To make an appointment, call (303) 556-5800.
Admitted Students. Upon admission to the College, students execute a Degree Plan which identifies the courses required to graduate. This plan contains all the information needed to select courses and monitor progress toward completion of requirements for the degree, Bachelor of Science (Business Administration). Business students are expected to assume responsibility for their own advising. This includes scheduling courses each term, being familiar with all the policies and procedures of the College, and otherwise managing their own academic careers. Staff advisors are available to answer questions about unusual situations.
Career advising is available from business faculty and from the CU-Denver Career Center, (303) 556-4542.

Undergraduate Core Curriculum-University of Colorado at Denver
The faculty of the College of Business Administration, College of Engineering and Applied Science, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences have established a core curriculum for undergraduate students.
All undergraduate students who entered CU-Denver in Fall 1990 or later are required to complete the undergraduate core curriculum independent of their college or major. Undergraduate students admitted prior to Fall 1990 have a choice of either the new core curriculum or the requirements of their college in effect at the time of admission to the college.
The undergraduate core curriculum for CU-Denver is outlined in the preceding table, and the CU-Denver core requirements for business students are specified in the section labeled Business Program Requirements.
The undergraduate core curriculum seeks to provide all baccalaureate students with basic intellectual competencies in mathematics and computation, writing, oral communication, information literacy, and critical thinking. It also requires all students to develop basic knowledge in the areas of natural and physical sciences, behavioral sciences, social sciences, humanities, and arts. Furthermore, the core curriculum promotes an awareness of cultural and racial diversity. The majority of the core curriculum is designed to be completed during a student’s freshman and sophomore years in order to provide the foundation for specific training in a student’s major discipline.
Graduation Requirements
The Bachelor of Science (Business Administration) degree requires the following:
Total Credits. A total of 120 semester hours.
A minimal level of proficiency must be demonstrated in one foreign language or in regional expertise. Students may satisfy the proficiency requirement by taking courses as described below.
Area of Emphasis or Non-Business Minor. Completion of at least 9-15 semester hours of approved courses in the area of emphasis or completion of at least 15 semester hours in an approved non-business minor. Students who select a non-business minor must complete an additional three-hour business elective to earn the required number of hours in business.


Undergraduate Programs / 81
Residence. At least 30 semester hours of business courses (including the business area of emphasis) must be completed after a student’s admission to the College. The 30 hours for residence must include BLAW 4120 and MGMT 4500, and 24 hours in other 4000-level business courses (including area of emphasis courses if an area is selected).
Grade-Point Average Requirement.
To graduate, a student must maintain a minimum cumulative scholastic grade-point average of 2.0 for all courses attempted at the University acceptable toward the B.S. (Business Administration) degree, 2.0 for all business courses, and
2.0 for courses in the student’s area of emphasis or non-business minor.
Undergraduate Honors. Upon recommendation of the faculty, students who demonstrate superior scholarship are given special recognition at graduation. Students must achieve an overall University of Colorado 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 University of Colorado 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. Those who achieve a 3.7 overall grade-point average and a 3.85 GPA in all business courses will be considered for summa cum laude.
Filing for Graduation. A senior audit is completed on all students who have completed 90 or more semester hours. Students must file an Undergraduate Candidacy form and Diploma Card, and request a graduation evaluation prior to registering for their final semester. Failure to do so will 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.

I.COLLEGE OF BUSINESS AND ADMINISTRATION REQUIRED SEMESTER HOURS PROFICIENCY: 0-13
The business student must demonstrate either proficiency in a foreign language or in regional expertise. The requirement can be met in the following
ways:
A. Foreign Language
The language proficiency can be met by:
1. Completion of the third year of high school course work in a single language. Students must complete three years of high school credit in one language. A C (2.0) or higher must be earned in the final semester of the third year high school course to show proficiency.
2. Completion of three semesters of college-level course work in a single foreign language. The third semester course (college level) in one language requires a grade of C or better to complete the proficiency. The Pass/Fail option cannot be used when completing the requirement
at CU-Denver.
3. Examination. Students may show their level of proficiency by taking the placement proficiency exam given by the Language Laboratory in CN 220. The languages tested are French, German, and Spanish. For information about other languages, students should consult with their business advisor, (303) 556-5800. The number of times the student may attempt the examination is once per semester.
B. Regional Expertise
The regional expertise option is available as an alternative to Foreign Language Proficiency. This requires the student to develop expertise about a region of the world other than North America.
The student must complete a minimum of 9 credit hours of course work from an approved list that relates to history, arts, culture, politics, or the economy of a single defined region of the world outside North America. Courses used in the expertise area must meet the College of Business guidelines. These courses can be chosen from the list specified by the College of Business. Students should contact their business
advisor to outline their program,
(303) 556-5800.

VI. AREA OF EMPHASIS OR NONBUSINESS MINOR: 9-15 SEMESTER HOURS
Students may choose a general business degree with a non- business minor, or a business degree with an area of emphasis in Accounting, Finance, Human Resources Management, information Systems, International Business, Management, or Marketing.
A. General Business with Non-Business Minor: General Business students must take an approved non-business minor of at least 15 semester hours. The courses must form an integrated sequence and be approved by the College of Business. Up to 6 semester hours of the sequence may be in courses used to satisfy the general (CU-Denver core) requirements, but the number of “Other Courses”
(see below) will be correspondingly increased to meet the 120-hour total requirement for the degree. Students selecting a non-business minor must complete an additional three-hour business elective to earn the required
number of hours in business. This credit appears under “Other Courses.” Students interested in completing a minor should contact the individual academic departments regarding requirements.
B. Areas of Emphasis: Areas of Emphasis must consist of at least 15 semester hours, including any business core courses. For most areas, this will mean 9 semester hours beyond two courses in the business core. For areas with special requirements or areas with only one course in the core, it may mean 12 or more semester hours beyond the business core. Any hours in excess of 9 are included in the Other Courses category described below.
VII. OTHER COURSES:
0-13 SEMESTER HOURS
Students may choose Other Courses freely, subject to the following general rules: (1) Only non-remedial (college-level, as determined by the College of Business) courses will count toward the B.S. degree: (2) All students receiving the B.S. degree in Business must take at least 48 semester hours in business (excluding the economics core courses). Students in General Business will usually need to take at least one business course in the Other Courses category to meet this requirement;
(3) At most, 60 semester hours in business (excluding the economics core courses) may be counted toward the 120 credit hours required for the B.S. degree in Business; (4) Any business area of emphasis courses required by specific areas in excess of the 9 hours listed under Areas of Emphasis above are included in the Other Courses category; (5) At least 50% of the business credits applied to the degree must be taken at CU-Denver.
Guidelines for Elective Credits. Elective credits should be selected carefully because not all classes are acceptable. Generally, to be acceptable, electives must be taught by regular University of Colorado faculty, must have a form of assessment such as a term paper and/or examinations, and must be regular classroom-type classes. Course coverage must be college level, not repetitious of other work applied toward the degree, must be academic as opposed to vocational or technical, and must be part of the regular University offerings. Specifically, the College will accept:
a. A maximum of 6 hours of the theory of physical education, theory of recreation, and/or theory of dance, and


Academic Policies / 83
b. A maximum of 6 hours of approved independent study, internships, experimental studies, choir, band, and/or music lessons, art lessons, and
c. A maximum of 12 hours of advanced ROTC, providing the student is enrolled in the program and completes the total program.
The College will not accept:
Activity physical education classes, recreation, workshops, orientations, dance, teaching methods, practicums, and courses reviewing basic skills in computers, English composition, mathematics, and chemistry.
Areas of Emphasis
See individual areas of emphasis in this section for specific courses required.
ACADEMIC POLICIES FOR SELECTING COURSES
Registration. Instruction for registering for courses is contained in another publication called the Schedule of Courses, which is available before each semester. That publication lists the times when registration occurs and the courses offered.
Maximum Units Per Term. The normal scholastic load of an undergraduate business student is 15 semester hours, with a maximum of 18 hours allowed during the fall/spring semesters and 12 hours allowed during the summer session. Hours carried concurrently in the Division of Continuing Education, CU-Boulder, or CU-Denver Extended Studies Programs, whether in classes or through correspondence, are included in the student’s term load.
Repeating Courses. A failed course (grade of F) may be repeated; however, the /•’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 program advisor. Courses repeated without approval may not be used in the business grade-point average calculation.
Courses From Other Institutions. Business students must have the written approval of a business program advisor to register for courses (excluding MSCD pooled courses) offered by other institutions, including other CU campuses. Credit will not be given for courses taken without approval. Grades of C or better must be earned to receive business degree credit.
Generally, only non-business electives or lower division, non-business requirements are acceptable for transfer from other institutions once a student has been admitted to the College of Business. Students who, after admission to the College, take more than 12 semester hours from another institution, must reapply for admission to the College as transfer students and must meet the current admission requirements.
Metropolitan State College of Denver Courses. Business students may select their non-business required and elective courses from those offered by MSCD. Grades of C or better must be earned to receive business degree credit; however, the grade is not computed in the CU grade-point average and is treated like other transfer credits. MSCD business courses may not be taken for CU-Denver business degree credit.
Graduate Level Courses. With prior written approval of a business program advisor, students may take a maximum of 6 semester hours of graduate level non-business elective credits. Students must earn grades of B or better in graduate courses in order to apply the credits toward business degree requirements.
Pass/Fail. Only internships, independent studies, and non-business elective courses may be taken pass/fail. Required business and non-business courses (including the CU-Denver core) may not be taken pass/fail. A maximum of 6 hours pass/fail credit may be applied toward the business degree. Courses taken in excess of the maximum will not be applied toward degree credit. Pass/fail determination must be made within the posted deadlines (at census dates) and may not be rescinded (unless approved by the Undergraduate Committee).
Correspondence Courses. Only six semester hours of credit taken through correspondence study (from regionally accredited institutions) will be applied toward the business degree. Business courses may not be taken by correspondence. All correspondence courses must be evaluated by a business program advisor to determine their acceptability toward degree requirements, and the program advisor’s written approval is required prior to the student’s registering for courses. Students may contact the Division of Continuing Education, CU-Boulder, for correspondence course offerings and registration procedures.
Independent Study. Junior or senior business students desiring to work
beyond regular course coverage may take variable credit courses (1 -3 semester hours) as non-business electives under the direction of an instructor who approves the project, but the student must have the appropriate approval before registering. A maximum of 3 semester hours of independent study course work may be taken in any one semester; a maximum of 6 semester hours may be applied toward degree requirements.
An Independent Study Request Form must be signed by the student, instructor, area coordinator, and the Associate Dean for Academic Programs.
ACADEMIC POLICIES FOR SUSPENSION AND PROBATION
To be in good standing, students must maintain an overall CU grade-point average (GPA) of 2.0 (C= 2.0) or better for all course work attempted, and a 2.0 GPA or better for all business courses attempted.
PE activity courses, remedial course work, MSCD courses, and repeated courses not approved by a business advisor are not included in these averages.
When semester grades become available, students falling below the 2.0 GPA will be notified of 1) probationary status or 2) suspension. Students are responsible for being aware of their academic status at all times; late grades and/or late grade notification does not waive this responsibility. College rules governing probation and suspension are as follows:
1. Any student whose overall GPA, or business course GPA, is less than
2.0 will be placed on probation immediately. A student may be removed from probation when the overall GPA and business GPA have been raised to 2.0.
2. A student may remain on probation as long as the student maintains normal degree progress each semester as determined by the College and each term, while on probation, obtains
an overall term GPA of 2.5, and term business course GPA of 2.5, with no grade below a C. Failure to meet probationary provisions will result in suspension. Probationary status may continue only until the student has completed a maximum of 12 semester hours or four terms, whichever comes first; summer is considered a term.
The student will be suspended if the GPA deficiency is not cleared within this time.


84 / College of Business and Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration
3. Suspended students may not attend any campus of the University of Colorado or any division of the University (including Continuing Education or Extended Studies credit classes).
4. Students on suspension may petition for readmission to the College after waiting a minimum of one year from the term in which they were suspended. Generally, petitions are granted only in unusual circumstances. Any suspended student readmitted to the College will be under contract and placed on a continued probation status until the GPA deficiency has been cleared. Such students will be automatically suspended if, at any time, their overall GPA or business GPA again falls below 2.0.
5. Students earning all failing grades for a semester will have a dean’s stop placed on their record and will not be permitted to register without a business advisor’s approval.
6. Combined degree students are required to maintain the same standards of performance as College of Business students in order to be continued in
a combined program.
AREAS OF EMPHASIS
Each candidate for the B.S. (Business Administration) degree must complete the prescribed courses in an area of emphasis comprising a minimum of 15 semester hours taken at the University of Colorado at Denver. A 2.0 grade-point average is required for area courses. Typically, students select an area of emphasis after taking several of the core courses. They then complete the hours required for their selected area.
Information about each area of emphasis follows:

In addition, the Master of Business Administration for Executives (Executive M.B.A.) is offered as a multicampus program of the Graduate School


86 / College of Business and Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration
of Business Administration, and the Executive Program in Health Administration (Executive M.S.H.A.) is offered through the Executive Programs division.
The M.B.A., the Executive M.B.A., and the M.S. degrees in business are accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The M.S. in Health Administration is also accredited by the Accrediting Commission on Education for Health Services Administration (ACEHSA).
Requirements for Admission to the M.B.A. and M.S. Programs
Telephone: (303) 556-5900 Fax: (303) 556-5904
Admissions Advising. Persons contemplating graduate study are encouraged to learn about admission and program requirements by attending one of the regularly scheduled prospective student information meetings. Please phone (303) 556-5900 to reserve a seat.
Admission to the graduate program in business administration (M.B.A. and M.S.) is granted only to students showing high promise of success in graduate business study. Admission is based on the following indicators of the candidate’s likelihood to succeed in the program:
Academic Record. The bachelor’s degree must be earned from a regionally accredited university. The total academic record is considered, including the grade-point average, the course of study, and the quality of the program.
Required Testing. The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is required for admission consideration for any applicant who does not have a postbaccalaureate degree. A minimum score of 400 is necessary for admission consideration. The GMAT test is administered several times each year at numerous centers throughout the world. For information and to make application for the test, write to: Graduate Management Admission Test, Educational Testing Service, CN 6103, Princeton, New Jersey 08541; or phone (609) 771-7330. The code number for CU-Denver’s graduate business programs is 4819.
Work Experience. A record of appropriate employment at increasing levels of responsibility is considered a positive indicator of the likelihood of successful completion of graduate work.
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 is specifically designed
so that the required courses cover the material needed for completion of the degree. There are no prerequisites needed to start the M.B.A. program. Applicants for the M.S. degree, however, may be required to take background or Common Body of Knowledge prerequisite courses, depending on the individual’s academic and professional background. Students with non-business backgrounds have completed the program successfully.
For more detailed information, phone a graduate staff advisor, (303) 556-5900.
It is expected that students have an adequate level of personal computer proficiency in a word processing and spreadsheet package, as well as a good working knowledge of basic algebra and proper English.

programs must submit all materials
prior to the following dates:
April 1 for summer session admission; July 1 for fall semester admission; and November 1 for spring semester admission.
Early applications are encouraged because, if admitted, the student receives priority for registration time assignment. Applications received after published deadlines or without complete supporting documentation, scores, fees, and transcripts will not be considered for admission in that term.
International Students. Foreign applicants must fill out special forms, score at least 525 on the TOEFL exam, pay a $60 fee ($80 for dual M.B.A./M.S.), and meet significantly earlier deadlines. Contact the graduate admissions office at (303) 556-5900 for details.
Academic Policies for Graduate Students
Advising.

Degree Plan. All students are encouraged to formulate a degree plan with a staff advisor during their first term in residence, and must file a plan before they register for any elective course.
After the plan is approved and filed with the Graduate School of Business Administration Programs Office, students must petition before receiving degree credit for any course changes.
Course Load. The normal course load for full-time graduate students is 9-15 semester hours. However, because many students also are pursuing a career, it is possible to attend classes on a part-time basis by enrolling for 3-6 semester hours. Graduate courses are scheduled primarily in the evening in order to accommodate the working student.
Transfer of Credit. Upon approval of the Graduate Committee, a maximum of 12 semester hours of graduate business course work may be transferred to the M.B.A. from another AACSB-accredited master’s program, if completed within the last five years with at least a grade of B (not S-). A maximum of nine hours of graduate business courses may be transferred to the M.S. degree. Courses taken at other CU campuses are considered transfer hours and are included in the


Master of Business Administration / 87
transfer limit. Transfer of quarter hours of graduate business credit may satisfy a course requirement, but may not satisfy the total hours requirement, i.e.: 1 quarter hour equals .667 semester hours.
Time Limit. M.B.A. students must finish the curriculum within five years plus one semester from the first term of enrollment in the program. Courses older than 5 years generally will not be accepted for the degree unless they have been revalidated by petition to the specific department.
M.S. students must complete courses beyond those in the Common Body of Knowledge list within 5 years, and with reasonable continuity.
Former Students. AnyCU-Denver student who has not been enrolled for three consecutive semesters (summers included) is considered a former student, and must reapply for admission to the program by submitting Part 1 of the Application for Graduate Admission and must pay the applicable fee. Readmitted students must conform to degree requirements in effect during the term in which they are readmitted. If the new requirements differ significantly from the former degree plan, a petition may be submitted for any exceptions.
Graduation. Deadlines for filing an Application for Admission to Candidacy and a Diploma Card with the Graduate School of Business Administration Programs Office are July 15 for December graduation, November 15 for May graduation, and April 15 for August graduation. Early application prior to registering for the last term is encouraged, so that graduation check-out may detect possible last-minute problems requiring petitions or course schedule changes.
Minimum Grade-Point Average. A minimum cumulative grade-point average of
3.0 must be achieved and maintained for courses taken toward a graduate business degree. All CU-Denver graduate courses completed to meet business degree requirements are computed in the graduate business grade-point average. Transfer hours and grades from other institutions, including University of Colorado courses taken at the Boulder, Health Sciences, Colorado Springs, Continuing Education, and/or Extended Studies campuses are not computed in the business GPA, although degree credit is awarded.
Probation and Suspension. If the student’s cumulative graduate business grade-point average falls below a 3.0 after completion of 9 semester hours, the student will be placed on academic probation and normally given three semesters (one
calendar year) or 9 semester hours of course work (whichever occurs first) in which to achieve the required 3.0 cumulative average. Failure to achieve the required GPA within the allotted time period will result in suspension.
Passing Grades. Any grade below a C- (1.7) is a failing grade for graduate students. Graduate students must repeat a required course for which they have received a grade below a C-. Both the original grade and the grade for the repeated course count in the computation of the business grade-point average.
Repeating Courses. A failed course (grade of F) may be repeated; however, the Fwill be included in the grade-point average and will appear on the transcript. A course in which a grade of C- or better is obtained may not be repeated without written approval from the Graduate Programs Coordinator. Courses repeated without approval may not be used in the business grade-point average calculation.
Drop/Withdrawal. Classes dropped prior to census date will not appear on the transcript; thereafter, to drop with a grade of W, a student must be earning a grade of C-or better; otherwise, an /•'will appear on the transcript. Students will not be permitted to drop a course or withdraw from all courses after the tenth week of the semester, unless circumstances outside the student’s control are documented. The petition to drop or withdraw must be approved by the Associate Dean for Academic Programs and the course instructors).
Registration for Graduate Business Courses
Enrollment in graduate level business courses is normally reserved only for students admitted to graduate degree programs in business. Occasionally, non-degree students and graduate students from other University of Colorado schools or colleges may be permitted to attend on a space-available basis by obtaining written permission from the Graduate Programs Coordinator, telephone (303) 556-5900.
6000-level courses are reserved exclusively for graduate students. Graduate 5000-level courses may be offered simultaneously with undergraduate 4000-level courses. Students should check with a graduate advisor to confirm acceptability of 5000-level courses for degree requirements, prior to registering.
MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION (M.B.A.)
The Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.) program provides a general background in management and administration. This background enables the student to have the breadth of exposure and depth of knowledge required for an advanced level management career.
The program is devoted to developing the concepts, analytical tools, and communication skills required for competent and responsible administration of an enterprise viewed in its entirety, within its social, political, and economic environment.
The M.B.A. program is available in four different configurations: the INDIVIDUALIZED M.B.A. program, the COHORT M.B.A. program, the 11-month M.B.A. program, and the EXECUTIVE M.B.A. program (see relevant section).
The INDIVIDUALIZED M.B.A., 11-month M.B.A., and the COHORT M.B.A. have the same curriculum requirements; they differ only in the flexibility of course scheduling and the time required to complete the program.
The INDIVIDUALIZED M.B.A. allows the scheduling of classes with maximum flexibility so students can progress through the program at their own pace, by taking as little as one class per semester, or as many as five classes per semester, at times that are convenient to their work schedule. The program can be completed in as little as 16 months, or as long as 5 years plus one semester.
The COHORT M.B.A. enables the student to complete the program in 3 years plus one semester, taking two courses each during fall and spring semester and one course during the summer. Fall or spring, a new group of entering students moves through the core courses as a cohort, taking prescribed core courses two nights per week, thus sharing their educational and professional experience. Electives are taken as available to meet individual objectives. For working professionals who can meet the time requirements of the COHORT program, it provides a unique and rewarding educational experience.
The 11-month M.B.A. Program is an accelerated full-time program. It is the only one of its kind in the region that enables students to focus their energies in a concentrated, total-immersion program of study and earn a nationally accredited, 48-credit-hour M.B.A. in just under a year. All 11-month M.B.A. classes meet during the business day in the historic Masonic


88 / College of Business and Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration
Temple Building on the 16th Street Mall in Denver, which houses the innovative Richard H. and Pamela S. Bard Center for Entrepreneurship Development.
Candidates for the INDIVIDUALIZED, the 11-month, and the COHORT M.B.A. programs must complete specific requirements consisting of 16 courses (48 semester hours), as follows:

Core Substitution. Students with extensive and comparable course work in a particular core subject area may petition to waive a graduate core class on the basis of prior undergraduate or graduate course work taken at a regionally accredited college or university for the corresponding core class. This does not waive the 48-hour requirement. If a core course is waived, another graduate level course must be used as a substitute so that the student completes a total of 48 semester hours. In addition, the resulting 48-hour degree plan, with any transfer credit, must include course work in five of the following six areas: accounting, finance, information systems, management, marketing, and operations management.
International Elective. One 3-hour course must be completed from the following list:
ACCT 6370-3. International Accounting

Or, with prior approval of the Graduate Programs Coordinator, a special topics graduate business course with an international emphasis may be substituted.
Electives. The M.B.A. curriculum allows for 12 hours of elective credit which can be chosen without restriction from graduate level courses offered by the Graduate School of Business Administration. A maximum of 3 semester hours of graduate level course work completed at CU-Denver outside the School may be applied to the M.B.A. degree, but only with prior written approval of the M.B.A. Program Director.
Subject to the distribution requirements, students have a wide range of options available in selecting the 12 hours of electives. No area of emphasis is required for the M.B.A. degree, permitting students to choose a combination of courses appropriate for their individual career needs. Students seeking specialization in a functional area of business are advised to consider pursuing an M.S. degree or a dual M.B.A./M.S. degree program. No thesis or comprehensive exam is required for the M.B.A. program.
For additional information about the M.B.A. program, contact a graduate student advisor at (303) 556-5900.
MASTER OF SCIENCE PROGRAMS
Master of Science degrees (M.S.) are offered in the fields of accounting, finance, health administration, marketing, management, information systems, and international business.
The M.S. degree affords the opportunity for specialization and depth of training within a particular major field and, where allowed or required, a minor field. The specialization and expertise developed within the M.S. program prepares the student for more specialized staff positions in industry, the non-profit sector, and government.
The course requirements for the M.S. degree in each of the fields are divided into two components-Common Body of Knowledge and graduate core requirements. The common background requires at least 18 semester hours of business courses to develop general breadth and competence in the fields of business administration. These requirements may differ among degree programs. Some common background requirements may be waived if evidence of equivalent undergraduate or graduate level course work is shown and the course work is no more than 10 years old. Generally, an undergraduate degree in business administration earned from an AACSB or regionally accredited university will meet most of the CBK requirements. The graduate core requires at least 30 semester hours of graduate level courses as prescribed by the different major programs. Of the 30 hours, a minimum of 18 hours must be completed at the 6000 level. Normally, BUSN courses may not be used as free electives in the M.S. programs. Contact a graduate staff advisor for any exceptions.
Satisfying a CBK requirement by waiver is not necessarily the same as meeting specific course prerequisite requirements. M.S. students must file a degree plan prior to taking any elective course and must meet specific prerequisites.

The curriculum is a synthesis of management concepts and techniques that are applicable to any economic organization and tools that can be specifically applied to health and health services systems. The program emphasizes skills which heighten basic analytic and decision-making processes used by top level managers in selecting broad strategies for the institutions and by junior managers in administering sub-units of health care organizations. The faculty guide the students in their mastery of theoretical, conceptual, and quantitative topics.
The M.S.H.A. program has enjoyed continuous accreditation by the Accrediting Commission on Education for Health Services Administration (ACEHSA) since 1970.
The typical course of study is 57 semester hours of graduate level course work for students entering without an undergraduate degree in business from an AACSB-accredited program. The curriculum is based on a series of structured learning sequences, with M.B.A. courses comprising the majority of the first full year, supplemented by several core health administration courses.
The second academic year provides the student with advanced training in health administration. Within the 57 semester hours, the student must choose 12 semester hours of elective courses.

School of Education
Dean: G. Thomas Bellamy Associate Deans: Lynn Rhodes,
Dian Walster Office: NC 5016 Telephone: (303) 556-2844
INFORMATION ABOUT THE SCHOOL
As a graduate school in the heart of the city, the School of Education sees its mission as providing leadership for learning to support diverse individuals, communities, and organizations. Primary attention is given to the environments and personnel to support learning in the public schools, but learning is broadly defined to include human growth and development in the workplace, community services, and families.
What is leadership for learning? First of all, leadership is people - graduates of the School of Education who are experts in planning, organizing, motivating, and supporting learning throughout the community. The city depends on leaders who can make learning accessible to all its citizens, regardless of race, culture, economic status, or ability. The programs in the School of Education draw upon the rich and diverse resources of Denver’s communities and then return graduates to foster innovation and change within learning organizations.
Second, leadership for learning is new knowledge about the teaching and learning process. The School of Education emphasizes a scholarship of practice that links faculty, students, schools, community agencies, businesses, and families in common cause for improved learning.
Leadership is also involvement. Schools and other organizations are constantly challenged to adapt to the changing needs and priorities of the community. These challenges become opportunities for the School of Education to test and share new knowledge, teach in real settings, and apply new ideas. Through partnerships with schools and cdmmunity services, the faculty work to ensure that both our programs of study and our scholarship have an impact on the difficult problems of practice in Denver’s communities.
The CU-Denver School of Education faculty is actively involved in current efforts to improve schools and teaching. We participate in national, state, and local reform efforts and attempt to create in our own teaching the kinds of learning environments proposed for schools at all levels.
Our programs and class schedules offer flexibility to meet the needs of adult students who balance graduate education with the demands of work, families, and other interests. At the same time, we value rigor and excellence needed to lead schools through challenging times.
Goals of Instructional Programs
Degree and licensing programs in the School of Education are designed to prepare students for leadership in professional practice. Our curriculum is developed through the study of responsibilities of practicing professionals and the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that are needed for outstanding performance in professional roles. In our view, leadership in professional practice cannot be reduced to formulas or discrete skills. Rather, it requires that students develop deep repertoires of knowledge, abilities, and habits of critical reflection that support action in context. Our courses, assignments in practice settings, entrance requirements, and student evaluations all reflect the knowledge, skills, and dispositions we believe will support leadership in professional practice.
Accreditation
The School of Education is fully accredited by the Colorado Department of Education (CDE), the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools (NCA), and the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) in Agency Counseling, School Counseling, and Marriage and Family Therapy.
Programs Leading to Degrees and Licenses
The School of Education offers a doctoral program in Educational Leadership and Innovation, and master’s degrees in seven program areas. Students in these degree programs may pursue a variety of state licenses for teaching and school administration, or may elect to earn these licenses without pursuing a graduate degree. The School does not offer undergraduate programs in education, and encourages prospective students to pursue a rigorous baccalaureate major in their specialty area prior to commencing their professional preparation as an educator.
The School’s degree programs and the state licenses associated with each are shown in the table on the following page.
In addition, the School’s Initial Teacher Education (1TE) Program prepares elementary and secondary teachers for a variety of school settings through academic work, professional studies, classroom teaching experiences, and community field experiences.
Urban and Rural Access Programs
Through Access programs, the School of Education offers full degree programs in off-campus locations. In the metropolitan area, these include degree programs in counseling psychology and counselor education; administration, supervision, and curriculum development; information and learning technology; and special education. Elsewhere in the state, programs are available in counseling psychology and counselor education; administration, supervision, and curriculum development; early childhood education; and school psychology.
Extended Studies Programs
In cooperation with schools and other community agencies, the School of Education Extended Studies program offers a variety of graduate workshops, courses, and academies. While these are designed to meet specific education and training

A burning torch framed in laurel is placed beside him. The Greek inscription means "Let your light shine." According to Denve r designer Henry Reed , the classical design was used because Greek civilization " stands as the criterion of culture ." The laurel symbolizes honor or success, the youth of the figure suggests the "morning of life," and the scroll r e presents written language.

History In 1876, just over a century ago, the University of Colorado was found e d in Boulder . In 1912, th University of Col o rado's Departm ent of Correspondence and Extension was stabli!ihed in Denver to meet the n eeds f the burgeoning popu lation . As the brea th of course o ff e ring s expanded, so did t e demand for degree granting status. Th Denver Extension Center was the Univ ersity of Colorado-D enve r enter in 1965, and b y 1969, 23 fie lds of u d e rgradu ate study and 11 of graduat e studrwere offered . In 1972, the Colorado General Assembly appropri ated support to build th e Aura ria Campus , CU-Denver's curren t site. The same year, the Denv er "Gente r " was renamed University of Colorado at D enver. Two years lat er th e U ni versity of Colorado was reorganiz ed i to four campuses Denver , Colorado S prings , H ealth Sciences (Denver) , and Boulder. University of Colorado System As o n e of four cam puses of the Univer si t y o f Colorado system, CU-Denver has a special r o l e and mission in Colorado higher education .

The undergraduate colleges of busi ness, engineering , and liberal arts and sciences admit freshman and transfer students and offer programs leading to the baccalaureate degree in the arts, sci ences, humanities , business , engineering, and music. A solid foundation of academic skills and general education is assured through a comprehensive core curricu lum. Students may pursue graduate education through all of the campus ' colleges and schools . Pre-professional training in the fields of education , law , journalism , and the health careers are also available . The colleges and schools sections of this catalog provide a complete listing of bachelor ' s and master's degree programs , policies on requirements for graduation , course requirements for various majors, course load policies , course descriptions, and similar information. CU-Denver has kept pace with the demand for education which leads to improved professional opportunity in the "Information Age." Many programs emphasize practical business world applications , and specific computer oriented academic programs are offered in the computer science ( engineering) , applied mathematics Oiberal arts and sciences) , and information systems (business) programs . The University of Colorado at Denver The University of Colorado at Denver is committed to becoming the nation ' s premier Urban University. In urban environments , universities have a particular responsibility to adapt their traditional roles in the development , assessment , transmission , and preserva tion of knowledge to urban needs while maintaining the highest standards of education and scholarship. CU-Denver views its location as a fertile ground for advancing and disseminating knowledge, and treats its role and mission as a covenant with the people and institutions of the urban community. As an urban institution, CU-Denver sees its boundaries as flexible and permeable, with knowledge flowing to and from the institution and the community. Its view is global rather than parochial as it s e eks to link teaching, research , and service to urban issues and needs of the state, the nation, and the world. By drawing upon the riches of its tra ditional store of learning and disciplined thought, the University will serve as Denver's intellectual center and as a community resource ready to respond to the enormous urban challenges and opportunities facing its local and global environment.

The three institutions share a library (which is administered by CO Denver), classrooms, and related facilities on the 171-acre Auraria campus. Certain courses and programs are cooperatively offered. On the Auraria campus are administra tive and classroom buildings , the Auraria Library, the student union , book center, child care and development centers , phys ical education facilities , science building, and service buildings. The new buildings share the campus with the reminders of Denver ' s pasthistoric Ninth Street Park, restored church buildings, and the Tivoli Brewery , built in 1882. The Tivoli , renovated into a complex containing specialty shops , restaurants , and entertainment , has recently become the c ampus student union . Research and Other Creative Pursuits CU-Denver is strongly committed to the pursuit of new knowledge through the research and creative efforts of its faculty. Research and creative activities not only advance knowledge and enhance the quality of life, but also strengthen teaching by grounding instruction in scholarship and professional practice. In addition, these activities constitute an important component of CU-Denver's service to the community at large. Therefore, externally funded projects are a major priority at CU-Denver. Research projects , training, and public service programs at CU-Denver encom pass both traditional and nontraditional fields of study with a focus on issues that relate to city, state , national, and interna tional issues . During 1996-97, CU-Denver faculty and staff received external grants and contracts totaling $12,614,634 for research , training , and public service programs. The benefits for the campus in the years ahead will be substantial . Exter nally funded activities assist in sustaining scholarly discourse, enable faculty members to engage in the advancement of knowledge , provide the foundation for solving pressing practical problems of vital concern to society, and enhance the education of students . Many students actively participate in projects overseen by faculty members . An important aspect of research and other creative activities at CU-Denver is their multidisciplinary and applied nature. Research in every school and college at CU-Denver addresses questions of great significance for the welfare of Denver and the larger region . Its role within a thriving metropolitan area also serves as a base for exploring topics of national and even international import. But not all research at CU-Denver yields solutions of immedi ate practical significance. Exploration of topics on the cutting edge of the basic disciplines is carried out within the rich dialogue of scholarship that knows no national boundaries. This exploration may yield insights that eventually open the way to practical applications in the next century. Current externally funded research efforts address a variety of contemporary economic, political , educational , engineer ing , mathematical , scientific , and environ mental needs. Financial support has been obtained for program and service development in the areas of computa tional mathematics, early childhood and

Research projects rfmge from investi gations of to neuro toxicology and wat r transportation . In addition , a gre t deal of research at the University is cofducted without sub stantial external suwport. This research also yields importailt insights that are conveyed to a natio at audience through faculty presentations, exhibits, performances, and professional activities. Many meEbers of the faculty are leaders within t e national scholarly community.

For the Ph.D., a cpurse mark belo'w B-is unsatisfactort and will not be counted toward fulfilling the minimum requirements for degree. A student who taps to do satisfactory work will be subject to suspension , with the approval of the !major department. , Appeal may be made to the CU-Denver Graduate Council. The Council's decision shall be final. A suspended student is . eligible to apply for1readmission after one year. Approval or rejection of this application rests jointly with the student's major department and the school or college dean . . I REPEATING A COURSE A graduate stud nt who rec eives a grade of C, D , or Fin a course may repeat the course once, u{on written recommen dation to the dean y the chairman of the student's advisory committee and major department, the course has not previously been applied toward a degree. In calculat-ing a grade-point average for gradua ion, the Graduate Pro grams office will m nually substitute the grade of the repea d course for the old grade. Minimum cumulative . grade-point average for course1 applying toward the graduate degree is 3.0. All grades for courses taken as a waduate student will appear on the stuC\ent's transcript and will be used in caloulating the official graduate grade-pomt average . Grades earned courses taken as an undergradu ate bras a non-degree stud as well as grades earned in firstand second-year foreign language courses, will not be used in calculating the graduate grade-point average. t• USE OF ENGLISH A student who is noticeably deficient in the use of standard English in all oral and . written work may not obtairl an advanced • degree from the University of Colorado. . Ability to use the language with precision . ' and distinction should be cultivated as an attainment o( major importance. Each department will judge the qualifi cations 0f its advanced students in the use of English. Reports, examinations , and speech will be considered in estimating the candidate's proficiency.-. GRADUATE APPEALS Final action on appeals submitted by graduate students concerning action taken by faculty membe,rs , programs , . or administrative officials rests with the campus Graduate Council , unless such appeal involves a ma't'tei'affe,cting more campuses . In such a case , the final action rests with the Executive Committee' of the System-Wide Graduate School. ' .. Master's .

CREDIT BY TRANSFER A limited amount of high quality resi dent graduate work done in a recognized graduate school elsewhere within the time allowed may be accepted , provided it is recommended by the department concerned and approved by the school or college dean. To be eligible for courses to be considered for transfer, a student must have an overall3. 0 average in all courses taken at the University of Colorado in the Graduate Programs . Credits earned as a non-degree student at CU-Denver may be transferred as described in the section on Non-Degree Students. The maximum amount of work that may be transferred to this University is 9 semester hours . Credit will not be transferred until the student has established in a graduate program of this University a satisfactory record of at least one semester in resi dence; such transf e r will not reduce the residence at this University , but it may reduce the amount of work to be done in formal courses . The following are courses which will not be transferred : • Work already applied toward a master's degree. • Courses with "Pass/ Fail " or " Satisfac tory/ Unsatisfactory " grades. • Extension work completed at another institution. • Correspondence work, except to make up deficiencies . • Excess undergraduate credits from another institution. 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 school or college by the beginning of the semester prior to that in which the student will be graduated . For more information , contact your graduate advisor . CONTINUING EDUCATION COURSE WORK Students may use courses offered through Extended Studies programs in individual schools and colleges in the pursuit of graduate study onl y if they obtain proper academic approval from the major department.

The exami nation will also cover the thesis, for stu dents under Plan I, which should be essentially complete at the time the examination is taken .

PAGE 23

5. An examination the minor work taken at this universit)l is optional with the major and minor departments . 6. The examination must include all work presented for thr .degree not done in residence at the of Colorado, whether in the major or minor field . The examination on transferred work will be given by represdrtatives of the corre sponding fields of study in this univer sity. 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 (Jrescribed by the examining committee has been completed . The student may retake the examination nly once. SUPPLEMENTAL EXAMINATIONS Supplemental examinations should be simply an extension of the original comprehensive examination and given afterward. If the sq.1dent fails the supple mental examination, three months must elapse before attempting the supplemental examinat ion again. COURSE EXAMIINATIONS The regular wri en examinations for each semester exc;ept the last must be taken. Course exarpina tions for the last semester, which come after the compre hensive final examination has been passed, may be omitted with the consent of the ihstructor. TIME LIMIT degree ! students have five years from the dat of the start of course work to complete II degree requirements. For students who fail to complete the degree in this five-,Year period , it will be necessary for the program director to file an annual statement with the Campus Graduate Dean, st ting the reasons why the program faculfY believe the student is making adequa e progress and should be allowed to in the program. Students who do work exclusively in summer terms complete all degree requiremlts within 72 months from the start of c urse work. A student who oes not complete all degree r equireme ts within the specified period of time must validate, by special examination(s), aF course work taken more than 6 years prior to taking the master ' s comprehensive examination or completing the th r sis defense , depending on which plan is elected. DEADLINES FOR MASTER'S DEGREE CANDIDATES Deadline dates for the following can be obtained by calling (303) 556-2663. 1. Last day for requesting transfer of credit. 2. Application for . Admission to Candidacy form and diploma cards. Students are urged to submit these forms at the beginning of the semester prior to that in which th ey expect to receive the degree. Please note: a new diploma card must be submitted for the semester a student is planning to graduate , even if a diploma card was submitted for a previous semester . (fhe forms may be picked up in the department or in the Graduate Programs office). 3. Last day for submission of Request for Graduate Examination Form. 4 . Last day for thesis to be approved by department. 5 . Last day for scheduling of comprehen sive final examination and thesis defense . 6. Last day for taking comprehensive final examination and thesis defense . 7. Last day for submitting thesis for format review. 8. Last day for submitting final thesis to the Campus Graduate Dean . At the time of submission, the thesis must be complete in all respects and must meet thesis specifications in order to be accepted. Doctor of Philosophy The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree is the highest academic degree conferred by the University. To state the requirements for the degree in terms of credit hours would be misleading because the degree is not conferred merely upon the satisfactory completion of a course of study, however faithfully pursued. Students who receive this degree must demonstrate that they are proficient in some broad subject of learnin g and that they can critically evaluate work in this field; furthermore, they must have shown the ability to work independently in their chosen field and must have made an origi nal contribution of significance to the advancement of knowledge . The technical requirements stated below are minimal requirements for all candidates for the degree; additional conditions set by the departments will be found in the announcements of separate departments . Any department may make additional regulations consistent with these general rules . Graduate Programs I 21 Studies leading to the Ph.D . degree must be chosen so as to contribute to special competence and a high order of scholar ship in a broad field of knowledge. A field of study chosen by the student may be in one department or it may include two or more clos ely related departments. The criterion as to what constitutes an acceptable field of study shall be that the student's work must contribute to an organized program of study and research without re gard to the organization of academic departments within the Univer sity. MINIMUM COURSE/DISSERTATION REQUIREMENTS A minimum of 30 semester hours of graduate courses and 30 semester hours of dissertation credit are required for the Ph.D. degree. Course Work Requirement . A minimum of 30 semester hours of courses num bered 5000 or above is required for the degree , but the number of hours of formal courses will ordinarily exceed this mini mum . At least 20 of the required hours must be in graduate courses taken in residence at this university. Students who have been admitted to the Graduate Programs with deficiencies may expect to receive little or no residence credits until the deficiencies have been removed . Dissertation Hours Requirement . To complete the requirements for the Ph.D., a student must complete a total of at least 30 hours of doctoral dissertation credit, with not more than ten of these credit hours taken during any single semester . No more than ten dissertation hours may be taken prior to the semester of taking the comprehensive examination. An additional ten dissertation hours may also b e taken during the semester the comprehensive exam ination is taken. It is not necessary to complete the comprehensive examination to register for dissertation hours. Dissertation credit does not apply toward the minimum 30 hours of required course work specified above. Course work and work on the dis sertation may proceed concurrently throughout the doctoral program; however , at no time shall a doctoral student register for more than 15 hours of 5000 level and above courses. ADVISORY COMMITTEE The Advisory Committee will be appointed by the student's program director.

PAGE 24

22 / Genera/Information A purpose of the advisory committee (beyond guiding the student through graduate study) is to ensure against spe cialization that is too narrow. The student shall obtain the signature of the chair of the committee (thereby signifying his or her willingness to act ) on the Application for Admission to Candidacy form. Any change in the membership of the advisory committee is to be similarly reported . All members of the committee must be appointed to the Graduate Faculty. LANGUAGE REQUIREMENT The decision on foreign language requirements for Ph.D . degrees is the responsibility of the graduate faculty of each graduate program . GRADUATE CREDIT See section under Master's Degr e e . RESIDENCE The student must be properly regist e r e d to earn residence c r e dit . The minima l resi dence requirement shall be six se mesters of scholarly work beyond the attainment of an acceptable bachelor ' s degree. Mere attendance shall not constitute residence as the word is here used. Residenc e may be earned for course work completed with distinction, for participation in seminars, or for scholarly research performed here or elsewhere under the auspices of the University of Colorado. Two semesters of residence credit may be allowed for a master ' s degree from another institution of approved standing , but at least four semesters of resid e nc e credit, two of which must be conse c utive in one academic year , must be earned for work (course and/or dissertation ) taken at this university . A part of the residence requirement for the Ph.D . degree may be spent in another graduate institution, or in field work in absentia (provided that prior approval for work is given by the student's program director and provided that the student's registration is maintained for that p e riod away from the campus ). CREDIT BY TRANSFER Resident graduate work of high quality earned in another institution of approved standing will not be accepted for transfer to apply toward the doctorate until the stu dent has established a satisfactory record in residence in the Graduate Programs . Such credit must be transferred before the student makes application for admission to candidacy for the degree . Such transfer will not reduce the minimum residence requirement at this university , but it may reduce the amount of work to b e done in formal courses. The maximum amount of work that may be transferred to this university for the Ph.D. is 30 semester hours, or 50% of non-dissertation cours e credits required by the program , whichever is smaller . See also Credit by Transf e r under the Master's Degree description. PRELIMINARY EXAMINATION Each departm ent will satisfy itself (by examination or other means) that students who signify intent to undertake study for the Ph.D . degree are qualified to do so . The means by which each department makes this e valuation shall be specified in departmental require ments. Students who are thus evaluated will be notified immediat ely of the results . APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION TO CANDIDACY A student must mak e formal application for admission to candidacy for the Ph. D . d e gree on forms supplied by the Graduate Programs office at least two weeks before the comprehensive examination is attempted . Th e Admission to Candidacy form shall include an approved degree plan . Approval of the application shall occur only a fter the comprehensive examination has been passed , the student has been in residence for at least four semesters , the language requirement has been satisfied , and all standards of quality and content have b e en met. COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION Before admission to candidacy for the Ph.D. degree, the student must pass a comprehensive examination in the field of concentration and related fields . This examination may be oral , written, or both, and will test the student's mastery of a broad field of knowled g e , not merely the formal cours e work completed. The oral portion is op e n to members of the faculty . The stud ent mus t be r eg ist e r e d at th e tim e the compr e h e n s i ve e xaminati o n i s attempted. Th e examination shall be conducted by an examining board appointed by the stu dent's program director and be approved by the Campus Graduate Dean . The board shall consist of the advisory committee and additional members as necessary to total a minimum of five members of the graduate faculty , on e of whom must be from outside the student ' s program and repre sent the Graduate Faculty at large . A successful candidate must receive the affirmative votes of a majority of the members of the examination board . In case of failure , the examination may be attempted once more after a period of time determined by the examining board . CONTINUOUS REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS FOR DOCTORAL CANDIDATES Following successful completion of comprehensive examinations, students must register continuously. Students admitted to candidacy for degree will register for and be charged for seven hours of credit for each full-time term of doctoral work. For each term of part-time enrollment , students will be charged for seven hours of dissertation credit, except that students not making use of campus facilities may petition the Campus Gradu ate Dean for three-credit-hour status. Continuous registration during the academic year will be required until completion of the dissertation defense . It is expected that the student and advisor will consult each semester as to the num ber of hours for which the student will register , consistent with the classification identified above. DISSERTATION REQUIREMENTS A dissertation based upon original investigation , showing mature scholar ship , critical judgment , and familiarity with the tools and methods of research must be written upon a subject approved by the student's major d e partment. To be acceptable , this dissertation should be a worthwhile contribution to knowledge in the student's special field. It must be fin ished and submitted at least 30 days (in some departments, 90 days ) before the day of the final examination , and must be formally approved and made available for inspection by the examining committee before the final examination may be taken. In mechanical features , all dissertations must comply with the specifications as outlined in the Dir e ctions f o r Preparing Master ' s and Do ctoral Theses, which may be obtained from the Graduate Programs office . The final draft must be reviewed and approved by the Graduate Programs office three weeks before the end of the semester of graduation. It is the student ' s responsibility to notify the Graduate Programs office of the exact title of the dissertation at least six weeks prior to the commencement at which the student will graduate. This title will be printed in the commencement program (May graduation only).

Institu tions are bound by tpe provisions of this statute and are not ree to make excep tions to the rules se, forth . Students are initially classified as instate or out-of-state for tuition purposes at the time of The classifica tion is based upon i formation furnished by the student and f om other relevant sources. After the s dent's status is determined, it rema ns unchanged in the absence of satisfact ry evidence to the contrary. Once a student is lassified as a non resident for tuition urposes , the student must petition for a c ange in classifica tion. Petitions must e submitted NO LATER THAN THE RST OFFICIAL DAY OF CLASSES of the t rm for which the student wishes to as a resident. It is prefer ed that petitions be received 30 days rior to the beginning of the term . Lat e will not be considered until th next semester. Specific informatio may be obtained from the Office of Admissions . The final decision regarding tuition sta tus rests with the University . Questions regarding residence (tuition) status should be referred only to the Tuition Classification Officer . Opinions of other persons are not official or binding upon the University. Additional information is available in the brochure, Classification of Students for Tuition Purposes , which may be obtained from the Admissions Office . BASIC REQUIREMENTS The statute provides that an in-state student is one who has been a legal domi ciliary of Colorado for one year or more immediately preceding the beginning of the term for which the in-state classifica tion is being sought. Persons over 23 years of age or who are emancipated establish their own legal domicile. Those who are under 23 years of age and unemancipated assume the domicile of their parent or court-appointed legal guardian. An une mancipated minor's parent must , there fore, have a legal domicile in Colorado for one year or more before the minor may be classified as an in-state student for tuition purposes. ESTABLISHING DOMICILE 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 Colo rado domicile on the person seeking to establish the domicile . The question of intent is one of documentable fact and needs to be shown by substantial connec tions with the state sufficient to evidence such intent. Legal domicile in Colorado for tuition purposes begins the day after 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; and most important , (5) 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 legal domicile retroac tive to the time filed .ln 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 the semester, instate tuition cannot be granted until the next semester. Financial Aid I 27 Resident Tuition for Active Duty Military Personnel The Colorado Legislature approved resident tuition for active duty military personnel on permanent duty assignment in Colorado and for their dependents . ELIGIBLE STUDENTS MUST BE CERTIFIED EACH TERM. Students obtain a completed verification form from the base education officer, and submit the form with their military ID to the Records Office after they have registered , but before the end of the drop/ add period . At the time the verification form is certified in the Records Office, the student's bill will be adjusted to reflect the resident tuition rate. St udents who have been certified remain classified as non-residents for tuition purposes and must petition to change their status once they establish permanent ties to Colorado. NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION An orientation program for all new stu dents is held at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, prior to the first day of classes . The orientation program provides information to new students about activities and services available at CU-Denver . Information on the registra tion process, parking, and securing ID cards is also provided . Academic advising sessions are held before registration for the term . FINANCIAL AID Director: Ellie Miller Office: NC 1030 Telephone: ( 303) 556-2886 E-mail Address: finaid@carbon.cudenver.edu World Wide Web Address: http:/ / finaid . cudenver.edu / htm The Office of Financial Aid offers over $30 million in financial aid awards to quali fied students each year.

28 / Genera/Information and are reviewed by other CU-Denver departments (the Graduate Programs , undergraduate deans' offices, and the Office of Admissions , respectively). All other applicants for financial aid are notified of their award status in writing by the Office of Financial Aid. Eligibility Each student must qualify for CU Denver financial aid as follows: 1. Be a U.S. citizen or be admitted to the U.S. by the INS on a permanent basis . 2. Be classified as a degree-seeking student by the CU-Denver Office of Admis sions. Teacher certification students are eligible to apply for financial aid and are considered as undergraduate students according to federal guidelines. 3. Be enrolled for a minimum number of credits as specified on the financial aid award letter and/or student loan planning Jetter . 4. Meet the minimum requirements of Financial Aid Academic Standards. 5. Apply for financial aid by submitting all of the required documentation . The need analysis form is required for all programs except the Colorado Gradu ate Fellowship, Colorado Scholars award , Colorado Deans Scholars award, Colorado Regents Scholars award, and the Emergency Student Loan Program . 6 . Be classified as a resident for tuition purposes for the following programs : Colorado Student Grant, Colorado Student Incentive Grant, Colorado Graduate Grant , Colorado Work-Study , Colorado Regents Scholars award, Colorado Deans Scholars award, and Colorado Scholars award. 7. Not be in default on any student loan or owe a refund on any educational grant. 8. Be registered for the draft or be enlisted in the armed forces if required by Selec tive Service. Application Each applicant must complete the financial aid application materials for submission to the Office of Financial Aid. Complete information must be available to the office before eligibility can be determined. Limited Funds-The majority of genera l financial aid funds are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis to eligible students who document significant financial need and who complete their application materials in the Office of Financial Aid by the March 31 priority date . Application completion is defined as having all of the required documents and the results of the need analysis (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) into the Office of Financial Aid. General financial aid is awarded to needy students who meet the priority date until all of the funds are committed for the year . If the file is completed after March 31, then awards will probably be limited to Federal Pell Grant (for needy first undergraduate students only) and /or outside student loans (Federal Stafford Loan or Federal Parents Loan). Application for financial aid must be made each year; application materials are available in January of each year. It is the student's responsibility to be sure application materials are complete. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid for application forms and complete details. All financial aid policies and procedures are subject to change due to revisions in federal and state laws , regulations, and guidelines. Qualification Financial Need-Most financial aid awards are based on the concept of finan cial need. Financial need is calculated as: cost of attendance (tuition, fees, books, living expenses) minus family contribu tion (s tudent / spouse contribution and parents' contribution for dependent students). The cost of attendance is the estimated cost to attend CU-Denver, including tuition and fees, room and board , books and supplies, transportation , and personal expenses. The Office of Financial Aid determines standard budgets based upon average tuition and fees charged and other budget items estab lished by the Colorado Coll)mission on Higher Education. For 1997-98 , the following monthly budgets were used for room and board , transportation, and personal expenses: $570 for students living at home with parents ; $930 for students not living with parents . Resident tuition and fees for a full time student were approximately $1,100 per semest e r and non-resident tuition and fees were approximately $5,950 per semester . These amounts will probably increase by approximately 3 % for the 1998-99 school year. Independent Student-The federal gove rnment provides specific guidelines that define a self-supporting student for financial aid purposes . If a student is classified as self-supporting, then the student ' s parental information is not considered when the calculation of family contribution is made. For 1998-99 , a selfsupporting student is one who is 24 years old (born before 1 /1/75) or one who meets one of the following conditions: 1. Graduate student 2. Married student 3. Student with legal dependents other than a spouse 4. Veteran of the U.S. armed forces 5. Orphan or ward of the court These conditions may be appealed to the Office of Financial Aid if unusual circumstances exist. Contact the office for appeal guidelines. If the student/spouse contribution plus the parents ' contribution is equal to or greater than the cost of attendance, then the student will not qualify for need based financial aid . The contributions from the student / spouse and from the parents are calcu lated by a standardized formula that is required by federal law . The formula considers income , savings and other assets, family size , number of children in postsecondary school, and other factors. Students may appeal for special consideration if they are experiencing unusual circumstances. Financial aid is intended to supplement and not replace financial contributions from the student and parents. Course Loads-General financial aid undergraduate recipients usually must enroll for at least 12 credits per semester, and graduate students usually must enroll for at least 5 credits per semester. Federal Stafford Loan recipients must carry at least a half-time credit load (6 hours for unde rgraduates per semester and 3 hours for graduates per semester). For defer ment of student loans , please refer to the Schedu l e of Courses each term for information . Higher or lower minimums may be required for individual awards (please check award letter and/or student loan planning letter for the exact number of credits required) . Academic Progress-CU-Denver stu dents must make academic progress as defined by the Office of Financial Aid in order to be eligible and remain eligible for financial aid . Students should review the Financial Aid Academic Standards policy, available in the Office of Financial Aid. Non-Degree Students-Non-degree stu dents are eligible to be considered only for the Advantage Scholarship Program . Please refer to separate brochure for application procedures. Teacher certi fication students may apply for financial aid and are considered as undergraduate students for financial aid purposes.

Residenc y Status-1 student is required to be a resident of Colorado for a full year before the Office of bmissions can con sider classification as a resident for tuition purposes . Non-residept students are encouraged to infor mation from the Offi e of Admissions about appealing for r sident status . As a resident , a student IS eligible for the State of Colorado fin J ncial aid programs , and tuition is signifidntly less than for non-resident. Refunds and Repay ents-Any refund of tuition and fees resulbng from withdrawal or reclassification of status must be applied to the recipient's financial aid awards before any payment is made to the student. Students may also be expected to repay a portion of their financial aid awards if they withdrk w from CU-Denver . The institution must determine the refund policy which provides the largest refund to a recipient 6f Title IV financial aid funds (Federal Stafford Loan , Federal PLUS Loan , Federal Perkins Loan , Federal Pell Grant , Federal Supplemental Educa tional Opportunity Federal College Work Study and/or State Student Incentive Grant ). In to the institution's refund P ?licy, one of two federal refund policie must also be applied. Federal Pro Rata Re'fund PolicyThis federal policy is applitable to Title IV recipients who are attending CU-Denver for the first time and 1 ithdraw in the first term of attendan e . Federal Refund PolicyThis federal policy is applicable to Title IV recipients who do not meet the riteria for a Federal Pro Rata Refund . I The larger refund between the institu tional policy and the pplicable federal policy is implemente . Once the refund is determined , it mus ' then be returned to the financial aid pr grams that the student received ( exc uding the Federal and State College Wor, Study Programs ) . Refunds are allocated to financial assis tance programs up to the amount the student received befo e any funds are returned to the st dent. Repayments-Finan f ial aid recipients can receive for non -institu tional costs , such as li:ving expenses, as well as for institution I charges . When a student withdraws , institution must determine if the disb sement the student received for noninsti utional costs exceeds the amount o living expenses incurred .lf the institupon determines that the student was 9 verpaid , then the student will be required to repay a portion of his or her non-insti utional financial aid (excluding Federal/State College Work Study, Federa l Stafford Loans, and Federal PLUS Loans). For a complete description of federal , state , and institutional requirements , please request a copy of the Refund and Repayment Policy from the Office of Financial Aid . Appeals-Students may appeal all decisions of the Office of Financial Aid by completing a Request for Review form and submitting it to the office. Appeals are considered within three weeks and a written response is mailed to the student. Reapply Each Year-Financial aid awards are not automatically renewed each year.

Policies with respect to IF/IW grades are available in the individual college and school dean 's offices. Use of the IF or IW is at the option of the course instructor and/or the academic dean 's office. An IF or IW is given only when students, for reasons beyond their control, have been unable to complete course require ments. A substantial amount of work must have been satisfactorily completed before approval for such a grade is given . The instructor who assigns an IF or JW sets the conditions under which the course work can be compl e ted and the time limit for its completion. The student is expected to comp l ete the requirements

PAGE 37

within the establish d deadline and not retake the entire co rse. It is the instructors and/or the student's decision whether a ourse should be retaken. If a course retaken , it must be comp l e t ed on the Denver campus or in Denver Extended StX1 dies classes. The student must re-regi ter f or the course and pay the approp ate tuition . The final grade (earne d by completing the co urs e require111ents or by retaking the co urs e) does not resu lt in deletion of th e IF or IW from thE1 transcript. A second en try is posted on tile transcript to show the final grade for thb course. At the e nd of one ear, IF and IW grades for courses that are ot completed or repeated are cha ged to an For W, respectively . Good Academ c Standing Good academic st nding requires a minimum grade-poiryt average that is determin e d by the student's school or college. Grades earned at another institution are not u ed in calculating the grade-point average at th e University of Colorad o . Degr ee students s ould consult the academic standards ection of their school or colleg e for degree program r eq uirem e nts . Continuation as a fOn-degree student is contingent upon maintain ing an overall grade-point average of 2.0 upon comple tion o f 12 or more se?:ester hours. Failure t o maintain the required average will result in a student being suspended . The suspension is for an indefinit e period of tpe and becomes part of th e record at th e University. Whfle under suspensio n , enrollment at the Uni vers it y is restricted to summer terms or ourses offered throu gh Extended St dies. Non-degree stu de ts are not placed on academic probati n prior to being suspended. Th e gra d e-point a erage (GPA) is com puted by mult iplying the credit points per hour ( for example , B 3) by the number of hours for each cours , totaling the hours and the credit points and dividing the total points by the to al hours . Grades of P, NC, * * * , W, IP, IW, anq IF are not included in the gra de-p oint that are not comp let e d within one year are calcu l ated as Fin the GPA. If a co urs e is rep ea ted , all grades earned are used in determining the grade-point average. Grades received at another insti tution are not include d in th e Unive rsity of Colorado GPA. Undergraduate and graduate GPAs are calculated separat ely. Studen t s should ref e r to their academic dean's office for individual gra de-point average calculations as the y r e l ate to academic progress and graduation from their college or school. Grade Reports Grade reports are normall y availa ble within two weeks after th e en d of th e semester. Grade reports are a utomatically mailed a t the end of eac h semester to student's permanent mailing address. Grades posted to the co mputer can be heard using the phone system . See the Schedule of Courses for mor e information. Mid-Term Grades Instructors will assign mid-term grades for cer tain populations of students. Studen ts in academic difficult y may be contacted and coun seled about support services available t o them . Please note: academic support services are available to all students through th e Center for Educational Oppor tunity Programs , NC 2012, (303) 556-2065, or th e Student Advocacy Center, NC 2012, (303) 556-2546 . Originality of Work In all academic areas it is imperative that eit h e r work be original, or exp licit acknow l e d gmen t be given for the us e of other persons ' ideas or l anguage. Students should cons ult with i nstructors to learn specific procedures appro priate for documenting the work of others in each give n field . Breaches of academic honesty can result in disciplin ary mea sures ranging from low e rin g of a grade to permanent compu lsory withdrawal from the University . Graduation Undergraduates . Stu dents should make an appointm ent with the advising office of their school or college to d e termine what requirements r e main for graduation . S tud en t s int ending to graduate must file a Dipl oma Card with their school or college during th e first week of th eir gradua tion t erm .

This mission is reflected in such Academy projects as Foundations of Counseling , a post-graduate counseling psychology course that ITA offers on the Internet , and the DAY Training Academy, a program that provides disabled veterans the training they need to become National Service Officers and promote the needs of their fellow veterans . These and other training endeavors help promote educa tion and advancement among individuals for whom such opportunities are not always readily available. ITA is also an active contributor to the New Urban University initiative at CU-De nver. Older , well-established programs like the National Veterans ' Training Institute (NVTJ) combine with enterprising new ones such as Colorado Works (welfare reform training for staff of the Colorado Department of Human Services) and the Latino / a Research and Policy Center (LRPC) to give something back to the people and communities who host ITA and the University so well. These programs aim to help develop the knowledge and skills that people in Denver and beyond need to build their urban communities into strong, sustainable metropolitan areas. Funding for all of these and other pro grams implemented by the International Training Academy has come from a variety of sources. Federal agencies like the United States (U.S.) Department of Defense, U. S . Department of Labor , and the Department of Veterans Affairs have sponsored ITA programs, as have state agencies like the Colorado Department of Human Services. These public sector efforts have been complemented by contracts and grants from private sector entities such as the Disabled American Veterans and other nonprofit organiza tions . The International Training Academy both gives to and receives from many different social groups and institutions in the global community.

46 / Genera/Information University officials who have a l egitimate educational interest in disciplinary information may have access to the files. All other inquiries , including but not limited to employers, governmental agencies , news media, friends, or Denve r Police, must have a written release from the student to gain access to Uni versity disciplinary files.

However, where the identity of the student has been publicly d isclosed in the news media , the University reserves the right to respond as it deems appropri ate to describe fairly and accurately the disposition of disciplinary matters . REFUND POLICY AFTER DISCIPLINARY ACTION Submission of registration materials obligates the student to pay the assessed tuition and fees for that term. If a student is suspended or expelled from the Univer sity , the amount of tuition/fees which would be refunded would be the same as when a student voluntarily withdraws from a term . See the Tuition and Fees section of this catalog or the Schedule of Courses for more information. The official withdrawal date applicable for tuition /fee refund purposes will be the date of the Student Discipline Committee's decision . In the event that circumstances are such that the accused student has registered for a subsequent term before the final decision is made, that student does so at his / her own risk and may be liable for payment of tuition and fees for both terms. The Committee will make the decision as to when official suspen sion or expulsion begins. Failure to make the required payment will result in the following actions: students will become ineligible for all University services; no grades will be issued for courses in progress ; no transcripts , diplomas , certification, or registration materials will be issued for the student until the bill is paid in full; and a late payment charge , in addition to the interest on the unpaid balance, will be assessed .

52/ Genera/Information CENTER FOR INTERNSHIPS AND COOPERATIVE EDUCATION AND CU SERVES Director: Janet Michalski Assistant Director and Coordinator, Engineering: Diane Lopez Assistant Director and Coordinator, liberal Arts and Sciences: Cherrie Grove Coordinator, Business and Administration: Kristy Adams Administrative Assistant: Beth Kipp Office: 1047 Ninth Street Historic Park Telephone: (303) 556-2892 The Center for Internships and Cooper ative Education, established at CU-Denver in 1972, provides students with an oppor tunity to supplement their academic classroom learning with on-the-job work experiences, internships, or community service experience related to their academic studies. Students are placed either as paid co-op trainees or as interns for academic credit with corporations , businesses, or government agencies in the Denver metropolitan area as well as out-of-state. Faculty coordinators from each of the University's colleges and schools act as liaisons between the Center and the academic departments. The Center currently places some 600 students eac h year with some 300 participating employ ers. Over 30 percent of all students placed are graduate students. Cooperative Education Cooperative education is an educa tional method which combines classroom study with paid , career-related , off-cam pus work. The purpose is to give students the opportunity to apply what they have learned in the classroom to real world situations, and to bring that experience back to the classroom as a learning tool. Cooperative education offers students paid long-term positions (two or more semesters). Students alternate semesters of full-time work with semesters of full-time school, or work part time year round. Co op experiences may be eligib l e for academic credit, and many positions lead to permanent career positions upon graduation. Internships Internships offer students short-term positions (one semester) and they are often nonpaid. Internships are always done for academic credit and are popular with students who like to explore a variety of careers. Many students complete two, three, or even four internships before graduation. Internships, like co-op jobs , are related to the student's academic studies and/or career goals. Eligibility for Placement To qualify for placement in a co-op or internship position , students must be enrolled at least half time in any CUDenver college or school, have completed their freshman year, have maintained a grade-point average of 2. 75 or higher, and have completed at least 12 hours in residence (6 hours for graduate students). Some employers have additional require ments , i.e., U.S. citizenship , willingness to travel, or specific course work. Participation in any CU-SERVES service day is open to all students. Participation in a service learning placement requires enrollment in a course with a service option or requirement. Eligibility for Academic Credit Undergraduate and graduate students placed by the Center in paid or non-paid positions, as well as students who have obtained their own positions, can apply to earn academic credit through courses in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Business and Administra tion , the College of Engineering and Applied Science , The Graduate School of Public Affairs , Graduate School of Business Administration , and the College of Architecture and Planning. Students can earn internship , cooperative education, experiential learning , field study, or practicum credit through courses established for this purpose. Why Students Participate • Students recognize the value of combin ing theory with practice and find greater relevance in their studies . • Work experience allows students to test classroom teaching in the laboratory of the real world . • Co-op positions provide a means of financial assistance that is available to students, regardless of family income levels or other financial a id arrange ments, and does not leave students burdened with educational debts. • The inclusion of a work component and the contribution from co-op earnings are major factors in encouraging firstgeneration college students to pursue a college degree . Why Employers Participate • Students are an excellent resource for specia l projects and peak loads or busy seasons. • The employer can assess an individual's potential for employment after grad uation, thus saving entry-level recruit ingcosts. • Student workers can increase produc tivity of full-time professional staff. • Students are highly motivated, produc tive , and dependable workers . • Students bring knowledge about the latest academic research to their employers. • As verified by many studies, co-op student interns subsequently become full-time employees with far lower turnover rates and better promotion potentia l than the average entry-level professional. Typical Participating Employers Employers who hire CU-Denver students for internship positions include: BRW, Inc. Capi tol Records Cellular , Inc.

If the matter is not resolved this way , the student may initiate an appeal by writing to the faculty member outlining the reasons for the appeal. Copies are to be forwarded to the Department Chair or Program Director and the Dean. The faculty member must respond in writing to the student's written appeal, with copies to the Department Chair or Program Director and the Dean. An Appeals Committee consisting of three faculty members of the relevant academic program will review the written appeal. The chair of the Appeals Committee will convey its recommendation in writing to the student who has appealed, with copies to the Instructor , the Department Chair or Program Director, and Dean. Attendance and Timeliness of Work Students are expected to attend all meetings of classes. Excessive unexcused absences may result in a grade reduction at the discretion of the instructor . Absence from a class will be excused for verified medical reasons or for extreme personal emergencies. The student may be required to furnish evidence. Students ' assignments are to be com pleted in a timely manner. Any assignment turned in late may have its grade reduced by an amount set at the discretion of the instructor. An assignment may be turned in late without penalty for verified medical reasons or for extreme personal emergen cies. Students must have their instructor's written permission to turn an assignment in late. Students with excused late work may turn in the assignment by the end of finals week without penalty. Otherwise, the grade "IF" will be assigned . Course Sequencing and Advancement Programs in the College are structured so that certain courses must be taken concurrently, others sequentially. Students will not be allowed to enroll in a course if its co-requisites or prerequisites have not been satisfied. Originality of Work Students must submit their own work. Where other sources are used in a student submission , they are to be clearly identified and referenced. The University con siders plagiarism and similar acts of falsification to be a serious matter which may result in suspension or expulsion. Information on codes of conduct and grievance procedures are available from the University of Colorado at Denver's Office of Enrollment and Student Affairs.

The program aims to excel in the education of its students, in the research and creative endeavors of its faculty, and in service to the community. To respond to this mission, the program has developed a unique intellectual , educational , and architectural culture . First of all , the program celebrates its place in a very special set of landscapesurbanized Denver and the Front Range , and the spectacular natural landscape of th e high plains and the Colorado Rockies . The architecture program th e refore focuses not only on the design of buildings , but also on the interactions between buildings and their urban and natural settings . Secondly, th e program examines the interplay between architectural form and the complex cultural and technological . context in which architects operate . As a result of these dominant concerns , the program has created an academic environment that is intellectually stimulating and educationally challenging , and that educates architects who will: • promote the practice of design as the basis of their architectural and intellectual method; • assert responsibility for their important role as designers of buildings in their urban and n a tural settings ; • understand and value the influences of history, th eory, ideology , context , technology , and practice on architecture and on urban and rural landscapes ; • define their obligations , their status, their ethical behavior , and their roles as members of an established design discipline and design profession ; • accept, apply , and extend the important professional , intellectual , and design traditions of the discipline ; • b e creative , thoughtful , and critical design leaders in the discipline and profession of architecture . Programs of Study I 57 PREREQUISITES While it is strongly recommended that students complete the prerequisites of college-level trigonometry and physics before entering the program , they must be completed before advancement to the second semester of the first professional Master of Architecture program. Students are also expected to have achieved a basic level of computer literacy , and should be familiar with PC or Apple operating systems . PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS According to the National Architectural Accrediting Board , which is responsible for accrediting all architecture programs in the United States , " Most states require that an individual intending to become an archit ect hold an accredited degree . There are two types of degrees that are accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board: (1) The Bachelor of Architecture , which requires a minimum of five years study, and (2) The Master of Architecture , which requires a minimum of three years of study following an unrelated bachelor's degree or two years following a related pre-professional bachelor's degree . These professional degrees are structured to educate those who aspire to registration and licensure to practice as architects. The four-year , pre-professional degree, where offered , is not accredited by NAAB. The pre-professional degree is useful to those wishing a foundation in the field of architecture , as preparation for either continued education in a professional degree program or for employment options in fields related to architecture." The professional architecture degree offered by the College of Architecture and Planning is a Master of Architecture. It is fully accredited by the National Architec tural Accrediting Board. To earn this degree , students with a bachelor's or master ' s degree unrelated to architecture must complete a sevenor eight-semester sequence of course work and accumulate a minimum of 114 hours of credit. Students completing the College ' s Bachelor of Environmental Design (B . Envd . ) on the Boulder campus-or completing a pre professional degree from another NAAB accredited institution-are given advanced standing in the three-and-one-half year program , and must complete a minimum of four semesters of course work and accumulate at least 60 hours of credit. The program ' s curriculum is divided into five major components: a 45-<:redit Design Studies component , a 12-credit

PAGE 60

58 / College of Architecture and Planning Cultural Studies component, an 18-credit Technology Studies component, a 6-credit Professional Studies component, and a 33-credit elective component. Of the 33 elective credits, students must take 9 credits in Cultural Studies, 9 credits in Professional Studies, and 6 credits in Technology Studies; the remaining 9 credits may be any architecturally related course on campus . A wide array of electives in these areas allows students to tailor their graduate studies to their own interests. COURSE SEQUENCE (M.ARCH. I ) FIRST YEAR Fall Semester (15 credit hours) ARCH 5ll0-6.

Advanced Studies in Architecture and Urbanism The College of Architecture and Planning has two programs which offer students with established design back grou nds opportunities for advanced study in the fields of architecture and urban design: The Master of Architecture 11 and the Master of Architecture in Urban Design . Each of these programs has a research orientation and agenda , and their general intent is to create an educa tional con text within which the fundamental practices of architecture and urbanism may be examined, advanced , and exte nded. The advanced study programs have been designed to be both flexible and interdisciplinary , and through this they provide students with a broad range of options which can accommodate and respond to each student's own interests and study agenda. The Master of Architecture II The Master of Architecture II is an advanced degree program which provides its s tudents with a range of opportunities for exploring and extending their knowl edge of the practice of architecture . Students applying for admission to the program must have been awarded a five or six year first-professional degree in architecture , and may enter th e Master of Architecture II program in any semester of the academic year. The Master of Architecture II program currently offers five defined focus areas for advanced study: Design, which asks its students to further their knowledge and understanding of design, design theory and criticism , and advanced design methods and tech niques; Computers in Design, which asks its students to extend their knowledge and understanding of the computer as an effective tool for design generation and development; Technology, which asks its students to extend their knowledge of the building technologies, and to investigate the impact of current and emerging technol ogies on the form of buildings; Real Fstate, which asks its students to ex tend their understanding of the role of politics, finance , and economics as major determinants of design approach and the form of buildings ; and Practice, which asks its students to extend their understanding of the forces and processes which affect the ways in which architecture can and should be practiced. Each of thes e options requires students to complete 36 hours of credit in required, recommended , and elective course work to qualify for the award of the Master of Architecture degree . To be eligible for graduation from the program, students must complete 12 credit hours in the degree project sequence , and 12 credit hours in required and /or recommended focus-area course work particular to their area of study. The remaining 12 credit hours are elective course work. A typical sequence of course work within a focus area leading to the award of the Master of Architecture degree is: COURSE SEQUENCE (M.ARCH.

The Master of A I rchitecture in Urban Design The Master of Architecture in Urban Design program is a research-oriented, advanced degr ee prdgram which provides its students with a range of opportunities for exploring and their knowl edge of the design of the urban environ ment. The program makes full use of its setting in the heart of downtown Denver, using the city as the labo ratory for many of its projects and inrestigations . It asks students to inv estiga te , explore, and examine the form , morphology, and structure of the city, and to test the range of processes and which guide and inform any interventions in the urban landscape. Th e program also asks its students to question existing methods and models of interventio n , and to develop and propose alternative ideolo gies and strategies which can be used to resolve the broad range of concerns impacting the growth and evolution of the contemporary city and its complex urban landscape. There are t wo opt1o ns and plans of study for students wishing to enter the urban design program-a 36-credit-hour program and a program. Entry into a particular option is deter mined by prior degree and experience. Students applying for admission to the 36-credit-hour program leading to th e award of th e degree of Master of Architecture in Urba n Design must have been awarded a fivej or six-year first professional architecture , and may enter the Ufban Design program in any semester of academic year. To be eligible for g raduation from the 36-credit-hour program, students must complete 12 credit hours in the degree project sequen ce, a?d 15 credit hours in required and / or rrcommended course work in urban The remaining 9 credit hours are e l ctive course work. The typical sequen of course work within the 36-credit ' our option leading to the award of the I'VIaster of Architecture in Urban Design degree is: COURSE SEQUEN' E (36-HOUR MAUD) SEMESTER ONE Degree project proposal Urban design course work 3 c redits 9 credits SEMESTER TWO Degree project research Urban design course work Elective course work SEMESTER THREE Degree project Elective course work 3 credits 6 credits 3 credits 6 credits 6 credits Students who have design degrees other than the first-professional degree in architecture may be admitted to the urban design program after evaluation of their academic and design credentials, and will be required to complete a minimum of 60 hours of credit to be eligible for the award of the Master of Architecture in Urban Design degree. To be eligible for graduation from the 60-credit-hour program, students must complete 12 credit hours in designated design courses, 9 credit hours in designated history and theory courses , 12 credit hours in the degree project sequence, and 15 credit hours in required and/or recommended course work in urban design . The remaining 12 credit hours are elective course work.

The under lying premise or baseline is that the landscape architect strives to design places for people to inhabit, in the artful sense of the word, with a relentless commitment to quality, ethics, and appropriateness. Students will develop a thorough competence in design , design process , and knowledg e of landscape technology. The program features particular empha sis upon the holistic understanding of exploration , experimentation , and synthesis as it relates to professional practice, design management , and professional ethics. The dynamic setting of the Universitythe urban matrix of Denver and the inter face between the Rocky Mountains and the high plains-offers a stimulating edu cational climate for its students and its faculty. The program places importance on its academic achievements and on its service to the diverse range of cultures, communities, and people as a regional focus for professional design education. The program prepares the student to enter into the profession with a thorough understanding of its precepts and capabil ity of making judgments through a design process-a method by which one can determine the appropriateness and inte gration of the natural , aesthetic, social, and cultural parameters of landscape intervention . It infuses the student with a rigor and dis cipline necessary to execute, implement , eva luate , and critique his or her actions . PRO G RAM REQUIREMENTS The professional program in landscape architecture offered by the University of Colorado at Denver through its College of Architecture and Planning is a Master of Landscape Architecture degree program . It is fully accredited by the Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB). Students with an unrelated bachelor's degree must complete a six-semester sequence of course work and accumulate a minimum of 90 hours of credit to gradu ate from the program with th e accredited first-professional degree . Students completing the College's Bachelor of

Studer Head, Graduate Program in Urban and Regional Planning: Thomas Clark Telephone: (303) 556-3382 Urban and regional planners in the United States and other countries seek to identify social needs and environmental capacities, anticipate change and its impact on communities, shape the pattern of human settlements , provide essential infrastructure , maintain viable economies, and achieve and preserve sustainable communities that are suitably fit to their natural surroundings. Study in planning considers how social needs are legitimated, knowledge about communi ties and regions is compiled and analyzed, possible courses of action are evaluated, plans are formulated , implem entation is

transacted through the means of educa tion , investment , negotiation and regula tion, and how plans1 consequences are tracked over time. These tasks requtre a high order of ability: to amass and manipulate infor mation, to and model essential phenomena and processes, to simulate futures, and to judge outcomes having diverse dimension . They also require the ability to portray and communicate key concepts, diagnoses, and actions, and to harness knowledge about all the key actors on the suene in order to understand their needs, motives, and possible responses to the actions that plans provoke . these classes of abilities is a base1of knowledge that easily overreaches the bounds of any one discipline. I Planners must understand theories regarding urban and regional process, concepts of presentation, communication and negotiation , technologies for the depiction and manipulation of spatial information, means by which to docu ment , judge , and fo 1 ecast change in urban systems, privat e ecpnomic motives and constraints, the inclinations of all the major classes of players on the urban scene, th mesh of laws that empower planning govern private action, and the broader political economy of regional systems . Needless to say , education of plan ners can only begin in the university . It must be a life-long I?ursuit, and planning programs, including ours, are becoming increasingly suppor tive of the continuing education needs of p rofessionals . It is the intellectual excitement of this ongoing pursuit of knowledge that draws many to the field . I PROGRAM The Urban and Regional Planning Pro gram offers a curri 1ulum leading to the degree of Master of Urban and Regional Planning (MURP). is fully accredited by the national Planni'g Accreditation Board. With no adv need standing , candidates for the MURP degree must complete a minimum of 51 cr dit hours of graduate work , including all core courses (27 credit hours), a concentrJtion (15 credit hours minimum), and additional electives (9 credit hours). En ering students who have engaged in th study or practice of planning elsewhere may petition the fac ulty during their initial semester to deter mine whether any credit will be awarded or degree requirements relaxed as a result of these prior activities. A maximum of 27 credits of coursework can be applied for advanced standing . Students who receive the College ' s Bachelor of Environmental Design (B. Envd) Degree on the Boulder campus and who hav e maintained a GPA of at least 3.0 will be admitted into the MURP with advanced standing . These students can earn the MURP degree after completing a minimum of 42 credit hours, which will include the core courses and an approved concen tration . Students holding the Col lege ' s B . Envd degree who also completed the undergraduate Planning Option with a GPA of at least 3 . 0 (a nd with a grade of at least 3 . 0 in ENVD 4320, Planning Studio III) will , in addition , receive a waiver with credit for URP 6630 , Planning Studio I. These students will earn the MURP degree upon completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours , including 21 credit hours of core courses and all requirements for an approved concentration . The above conditions for advanced standing apply only to students who graduated from the College's undergraduate program within the last five yea rs . Thos e who graduated earlier may r eceive advanced standing at the discretion of the Head of the Graduate Program in Urban and Regional Planning, in cons ultation with Program faculty . CORE COURSES URP 5501-3. Planning Issues and Processes URP 5510-3. Planning Methods I URP 5511-3. Planning Methods II URP 5520-3. Urban Spatial Analysis URP 5530-3. Planning Law URP 6630-6.

Planning Studio II A thesis option (URP 6950 , Thesis Research and Programming , and URP 6951, Thesis) is available primarily for students who are inte rested in pursuing more advanced academic training in planning or related fields. Thesis work will substitute for Studio II. AREAS OF CONCENTRATION The concentrations and elective courses enable students to explore in depth an area of special interest. Students should , however , build on the expertise which they already possess. This can be done by either focusing on a related specialty, or by increased specialization in a previously acquired area of expertise. The Program currently supports three official concentrations: (1) Physical Planning , (2) Environmental Planning, and (3) Economic Development Planning. A set of "Foundat ion Courses" is identified Programs of Study I 61 in each concentration , plus additional electives. Physical Planning Concentration: Physical planning addresses the spatial arrangement of the environment, from the scale of the project to the scale of the region, and its fitness for human activities. Physical planners establish the policy and regulatory context for design develop ment , practicin g as land use or compre hensive planners, or in specialties such as preservation , transportation or open space planning , real estate development , and urban design . Environmental Planning Concentra tion: All urban and regional planning actions impact on the environment in some manner, and environmental planners must manage these impacts , both pro-activ e ly and re-actively . The Environmental Planning Concentration introduces planners to the policy and legislative issues surrounding the environmental implications of planning actions, as well as to methods for their assessment, control , and mitigation . Economic Development Planning Concentration: Economic development aims to amass within communities and regions the resources-jobs, capital, tax base-needed to sustain or improve the quality of life and insure opportunities for all within the private economy , facilitated through appropriate public actions and services . Planners foster economic change as diagnosticians, strategists, and promoters, gauge growth 's effect in light of environmental capacities, manage its social benefits , mitigate its negative consequences, and fashion its imprint on the physical landscape of localities, regions , states, and nations . Students pursuing this concentration should seek as well to become conversant with the essentials of physical or environmental planning. In addition to the three official concentrations, students have the choice of defining their own concentration. Students may also enroll in our joint degree programs with Publi c Adminis tration (MPA-MURP) and Landscape Architecture (MLA-MURP). At this writing, we are also exploring dual degrees combining the MURP Degree with the study of both law (JD) and business (MBA). Students may also take up to six credits of independent study, after first assembling a plan of study with one of the regular faculty . Up to three ' credits of internship may be applied to the 51-credit Program.

It requires completiOn of at least 12 hours of related course work that provides in-depth knowledge in a relevant area. Electi 1 e course work consists of 12 hours of additional study in areas related to the dissertation topic. For the Research the Minor Field of Study, and Electives , students develop an course of study to reflect their sped c foci and career aspirations . The req ired course work is determined joint! 1 by the student, the faculty advisor , and ommittee members . The Dissertation re uires 30 hours of work. Students are e pected to define a research question i planning and design, to identify the research strategy to be used for answering this question , to conduct the research , and to write up the project in the form of a dissertation. A student is guided in this process by a Dissertation Advisor , and by the additional members who comprise the student's Dissertation Committee . EVALUATIONS AND EXAMINATIONS Successful candidates for the Ph.D. in Design and Planning pass four points of evaluation : (1) Preliminary Exam , (2) Comprehensive Exam, (3) Doctoral Dissertation , and ( 4) Final Exam . By the end of the first semester of residence , the student devises a Degree Plan which is approved by the Graduate Studies Committee . A Preliminary Exam then evaluates the student's initial progress through the program. The Comprehensive Exam is an examination based on papers prepared by the candidate which survey the literature of the field , and which set out a proposed dissertation . This exam takes place after two semesters of residency , and before the student becomes a candidate for the Ph.D . degree. After advancement to candidacy, the student prepares a Doctoral Dissertation, which offers original research in the student's chosen field . When the College ' s Programs of Study I 63 Dissertation Committee approves the final dissertation submission , it conducts a Anal Exam based on the student's research. This exam is open to the public. COURSE SEQUENCE FIRST YEAR Students develop their degree plan, take five semester hours of the required Core Curriculum, take additional courses in their specialty area, make up any prerequisite courses, and take the Preliminary Exam . SECOND YEAR Students take the remaining core courses, continue to take electives in their minor and specialty areas, begin literature surveys , and prepare for their comprehensive exam. THIRD AND FOURTH YEAR Students complete their literature surveys, prepare a dissertation proposal, and take the comprehensive exam. After completion of the comprehensive exam, the rest of the third and fourth years is spent researching and writing the dissertation. Once the dissertation has been accepted, students take the final exam.

Porps Associate Professor: Lorre Hoffman Assistant Professors: Debra Goldman, Karen Math ews Senior Instructor: Sally Elliott The Department of Visual Arts offers courses in the discipline of Fine Arts (FA). Majors may choose to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art or Art History, or a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Arts with an emphasis in Drawing, Pain ting, Photog raphy, or Sculpture. The pursuit of education in the visual arts develops a comprehensive knowl edge of various media , including an understanding of art theory that encourages informe d and powerful decis ions in the practice of one' s craft. Similarly, the pursuit of art history involv es knowledge of the methods and materi als of art, as well as the other historical disciplines and methodologies (the history of ideas, cult ure, philosophy, or reli gion) that provide insight about the history of art and the image-making proc ess. While the emphasis in the studio area is visual arts practice, the history of art emphasis is on critical writing and analysis . A variety of opportunities is open to the fine arts major. The degree can be specific preparation for graduate study or a more genera l background for fields related to the visual arts, including arts administra tion , museum and gallery work , and art conservation . Graduating students receiving the B.F.A. degree are required to have a senior show during their last semester of study.

CU-Denver ' s College of Business is a " research institution," and our faculty are nationally recognized for their contributions to scholarly research as well as for their teaching skills. Accordingly , our students have the opportunity to be on the leading edge of busi ness management theory and practice . Our class schedules and curriculum offer flexibility to meet the needs of full and part-time students, with both day and evening classes . Whether they are experienced working professionals seeking advanced degrees , or preparing for new careers in the business world , students will gain the knowledge and perspective necessary to succeed in today's challenging business environment.

76 / College of Business and Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration liberal arts component. The program is closely linked, through arti culation agreements, to lower-division programs offered by Color ado's four-year and community colleges. The majority of undergraduates come from the Denver metropolitan area. Key elements of our academic programs are the provision of quality career advis ing and placement services, and flexible schedules and programs to meet a wide range of student needs. We are committed to assisting our students' efforts to pursue rewarding careers. Faculty Our nationally recognized faculty is vigorous and enthusiastic about its teaching and research . Faculty members hold degrees from the nation's leading business schools , including Berkeley , Harvard, Stanford, University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania, UCLA, and Yale. Many of them also bring years of va luabl e experience in private industry. Their interdisciplinary expertise, aca demic achievements, scholarly research, and business experience provide students with a dynamic learning environment. Students Unlike the students at a tradition a l college campus , many of our students are adult, working professionals who maintain full-time employment. Their success and experience enrich class discussions and interactions among students. Although a high percentage attend evening classes, a significant number are full-time students attending classes offered during the day. Following the current national trend , women constitute about one-half of the student body . Since admission standards are among the highest in the region , the student body is unusually motivated and talented . This rich mix of backgrounds, experi ence, and perspectives , when coupled with the strengths of our excellent faculty , fosters stimulating classroom interaction and keen competition among the students. Accreditation CU-Denver's College of Business is one of the few school s in the state accredited by the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Business Week wrote recently , " Today , just having the degree isn't as important as where you get it. . . . As corporations become savvier buyers of ... talent , they are giving more weight to the AACSB seal . .. Accreditation shows that a Business School cares about the quality of its program . " In addition , CU-Denver's accounting program has also received separate accreditation by AACSB. Prospective students should note that only two state-funded schools in Colorado have received such additional accreditation of their accounting programs . In a similar manner , our program in health administration is accredited by the Accrediting Commission on Education for Health Services Administration (ACEHSA). This agency ensures that health adminis tration programs meet demanding requirements for quality education in the health administration area. Entrepreneurship The Richard H . and Pamela S . Bard Center for Entrepreneurship Development offers a three-semest e r certificate program, internships , and accelerated courses designed to develop the kind of entrepreneurial skills required by businesses of all types . The program may be taken for college credit by degree seeking graduate students. Persons from various disciplin es, not just business , are encouraged to participate. The Board of Advisors is available for mentorship , and a venture-capital fund will help graduates launch their own businesses . Anyone interested is invited to visit the Center , located on the downtown mall in the Masonic Building , 535 16th Street, third floor. Or call th e Executive Director at (303) 620-4050. Professional Development The College of Business offers credit, certificate, and non-credit public pro grams and in-house , customized training programs which provide a functional business education to Denver metropoli tan area businesses and individuals . Experienced instructors teach a variety of high-quality , practical classes that are designed to meet the specific needs of business . For more information , contact the Director of Professional Development , Ruth Crowley , at (303) 556-5826 or fax to (303) 556-5920 .

Institute for International Business The Institut e for International Business (liB) was created in 1988 by the Board of Regents of the University of Colorado to serve as a center for the advanced study and teaching of international business. In 1993, the Institute was designated a Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) by the U.S. Department of Education, one of only 25 such centers of excellence in the U.S. Through the CIBER and other funding sources, the Institute strives to help the faculties of the College of Business and other Univer sity departments in internationalizing curriculum, programs , certificates, or other student-oriented endeavors . The liB works in other ways to support faculty in their teaching , research, and development activities. In addition , the Institute designs and facilitates customized international programs and training for business, c ooperates with other organizations to offer seminars and conferences, and publishes a quarterly newsletter to familiarize the Denver and regional communit ies with international business issues. Such initiatives help faculty , students, and the business community to acquire the skills and expertise needed to be successful in our increasingly global economy. The Institute also conducts and promotes research on the global economic aspects of competitiveness . Call (303) 556-4 738 for information.
