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.

In 1876, the same year Colorado became the nations 38th state,
. the University of Colorado was founded in Boulder. Opening its doors on September 5, 1877, the university began with 44 students, a president, and one instructor. Nearly a century later, in 1974, the University of Colorado had grown to four campuses in three Colorado cities—Denver, Colorado Springs, Health Sciences (Denver), and Boulder.
With combined enrollments totaling more than 46,000students, the University of Colorado ranks 12th among public universities and colleges in overall research expenditures and 6th among public universities in federallyfunded research. Awards for research within the university system total approximately $420 million, with funding provided by federal agencies, appropriations from the state of Colorado, andprivate foundations and donors.
Each of the four campuses of the University of Colorado system 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 University of Colorado at Boulder serves more than 26,000 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 6,600 students in the Pikes Peak region, offering undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs.
CU-Denver’s 11,000 students enroll in undergraduate and graduate studies, as well as innovative professional programs.
CU 2010: A Vision for the Future
Vision CU 2010 is a bold systemwide agenda intended to map the future of the University of Colorado for the next decade. CU 2010 consists of five actions: creating a university without walls, creating a culture of excellence,
increasing resources and using them wisely, supporting diversity, and integrating our infrastructure.
Creating a University Without Walls —
We must focus on multidisciplinary efforts that involve all four CU campuses and serve as models for the university of the 21st Century. The university of the future must break down the walls that separate the disciplines, colleges, and campuses within the system, the walls that separate students and researchers, campus and community.
Creating a Culture of Excellence—Since it’s impossible to be great at everything all at once, each campus is working to target areas for national prominence. Boulder should be among the top 10 percent of public institutions without a medical school in the AAU rankings. Colorado Springs should be the number one comprehensive regional university in the United States with an enrollment of 10,000 to 12,000 students by the year 2010. CU-Denver should be one of the top 10 urban research universities in the country. And the Health Sciences Center should be the number one public health sciences center in the nation within 10 years.
Increasing Resources and Using Them Wisely—CU needs to provide mote scholarship money to attract Colorado’s best and brightest students. We also need to fund more endowed chairs and professorships, to build and retain our outstanding faculty—our number one human resource. We must also leverage our expertise in technology to help fund
CU-Denver Catalog 2002- 03

VISION
As the Denver campus of the University of Colorado system, CU-Denver interprets its mission as advancing the creation, dissemination, and application of knowledge in a culture of excellence. Its boundaries are flexible and permeable, with knowledge flowing to and from the schools and colleges, the community, and the world. This view is global rather than local as CU-Denver seeks to link teaching, research, and service to the major issues of the 21st Century.
VALUES
❖ mutual respect for all members of the university community-students, faculty, and staff
❖ excellence in all areas
❖ collaboration among faculty, students, staff, and the community in the learning process
❖ the power of community in teaching, learning, and scholarship
❖ creativity, innovation, and flexibility
❖ service to the public good
❖ personal growth and professional success
❖ cultural diversity and enrichment
GOALS
❖ to build partnerships to strengthen core academic programs
❖ to build and focus resources on academic goals
❖ to foster academic innovations and excellence by defining a clear niche
In addition to these general goals, Vision CU 2010 is a bold systemwide agenda intended to map the future of the University of Colorado for the next decade:
❖ creating a university without walls
❖ creating a culture of excellence
❖ increasing resources and using them wisely
❖ supporting diversity
❖ integrating our infrastructure
For details on Vision CU 2010, see previous page.
Organizational Abilities and Structures
❖ organizational entrepreneurship
❖ innovations in support of learning
❖ ability to create effective partnerships
❖ ability to assess actions
❖ streamlined processes and policies to reduce barriers
❖ fair and equitable compensation system
❖ forums to create extramural alliances across colleges, the community, and the world
❖ an incubator to develop new interdisciplinary projects and programs
state-of-the-art technology for our students, faculty, and staff. The university will refocus its fund-raising campaign to address these goals, and we’ll continue to work in close partnership with the state of Colorado and with our delegation in Washington to increase federal support.
Supporting Diversity—By the second quarter of the 21st Century, there will be no majority population in the United States. That’s why it’s so important for CU to educate all of the citizens of Colorado—and the world—who meet our qualifications for admission. Our programs should also reflect our global community in international program offerings, such as expanded opportunities for students, faculty, and staff exchanges and jointly sponsored degrees with universities around the world.
Integrating Our Infrastructure — CU will work toward an integrated student information system, so our students can easily transfer to or take courses on other campuses. An integrated student services system will enhance our systemwide technology and human resources services. We will expand CU-Online so students
can take a much broader variety of courses and complete more requirements and degree programs online. And we will benchmark CU’s business practices with the best models from the corporate world.
Our plan is ambitious—and for good reason. With the rapid pace of progress that defines our world, the year 2010 will be here sooner than we think. Now is the time to envision our future and set our goals. The decade ahead will be the most exciting one yet.
THE UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO AT DENVER
Situated near the heart of downtown Denver and looking west toward the majestic Rocky Mountains, the University of Colorado at Denver is the only public university in Colorado’s capital city. Its proximity to the commercial and governmental hub of Denver enables CU-Denver to offer its students the combined excellence of its faculty and the opportunities afforded by this metropolitan environment.
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 to the development, assessment, transmission, and preservation of knowledge to urban needs while maintaining the highest standards of education and scholarship.
By drawing upon the riches of its traditional store of learning and disciplined thought, the university serves as Denver’s intellectual center and as a community resource ready to respond to urban challenges and opportunities facing its local and global environment.
CU-Denver offers more than 80 degree programs, from bachelor’s to doctoral levels, as well as numerous professional development programs offered by individual colleges and schools. Classes are held during weekday and evening hours, on weekends, and at off-campus

CU-Denver Campus Information / 7
History
In 1912, the University of Colorado’s Department of Correspondence and Extension was established in Denver to meet the needs of the capital city’s burgeoning population.
As the breadth of course offerings expanded, so did the demand for degree-granting status. From 1956 until 1976, the Denver Extension Center operated out of the former Denver Tramway Company Building at 14th and Arapahoe Streets. This building had housed the corporate offices and car barns of a huge streetcar system discontinued in 1950. Designated a landmark on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994, the Tramway Building was later renovated into a hotel and restaurant.
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. That same year the Denver Center was renamed the University of Colorado at Denver. In 1974 CU-Denver began granting degrees designated as the University of Colorado at Denver.
Between 1973 and 1976, the state built the Auraria Higher Education Center, shared by the University of Colorado at Denver, Metropolitan State College of Denver, and the Community College of Denver. In 1988, CU-Denver moved into its first custom-made new home, the 257,000-square-foot North Classroom Building, located between Speer Boulevard and 12th Street, Larimer and Lawrence Streets. Hoover Berg Desmond, a Denver architectural firm, designed this post-modern, red brick structure, featuring a distinctive glass block atrium and large outdoor clocks.
Role and Mission
In the Colorado Revised Statutes, the University of Colorado at Denver is defined as follows:
The Denver campus of the University of Colorado shall be a comprehensive baccalaureate liberal arts and sciences institution with high admission standards. The Denver campus shall provide selectedprofessionalprograms and such graduate programs at the master’s and doctoral level as will serve the needs ofthe Denver metropolitan area, emphasizing those professional programs not offered by other institutions of higher education.
The fundamental purposes of CU-Denver are to:
1. Provide students with learning opportunities that will enhance the quality of their lives, that will make them well-educated citizens, that will lead to rewarding careers, and that will provide
Denver and Colorado with a workforce able to compete in the global economy.
2. Develop research, scholarship, and creative work that will advance the base of knowledge in our disciplines and that will contribute to the vitality of our culture and/or economy.
3. Apply the university’s skills and knowledge to real problems in the Denver metro area.
4. Build and maintain an institutional culture of plurality, collegiality, integration, and customer service.
Administrative Structure
The Chancellor of CU-Denver represents the Denver campus and manages campus goal-setting, policy development, academic affairs, community relations, and budget and financial matters. The Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs is responsible for all academic programs, academic support programs, student enrollment services, the Graduate School, and sponsored programs. The Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance is responsible for the campus budget and the offices of financial and business services, human resources, planning and institutional research, computing services, and voice communications.
Academic Programs
CU-Denver is, above all, devoted to the needs of the residents 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 comprises seven distinct academic units: College of Architecture and Planning College of Arts & Media 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 Graduate School of Public Affairs The undergraduate Colleges of Arts & Media, 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, and engineering. 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 also are available. CU-Denver employs more than 460 regular instructional faculty.
The colleges and schools sections of this catalog provide a listing of bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degree programs, policies on requirements for graduation, course requirements for various majors, course load policies, course descriptions, and similar information.
At CU-Denver, faculty explore and incorporate both novel and traditional methods of instruction. Telecommunications and other electronic media are an integral part of the way CU-Denver transcends geographic space, making instruction more stimulating and more widely available, and connecting faculty, students, alumni, and state, regional, national, and international leaders.
In keeping with CU’s Vision 2010, CU-Denver has kept pace with the demand for education that leads to improved professional opportunity in the new century. 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.
About Our Students
CU-Denver students, both undergraduate and graduate, are well grounded in the professional and academic disciplines, making them ideal candidates for recruitment by employers and advanced degree programs throughout the nation. They develop the leadership, critical thinking, ethics, and future-orientation to enable them to become preeminent in their fields and to provide active leadership for the revitalization of cities everywhere.
To instill these values in its students, the University of Colorado at Denver excels in building instructional experiences around problems of contemporary urban life as well as traditional disciplines. Students and faculty are actively engaged in seeking solutions, through research and service, to these problems.
The diversity of our student body is a source of deep pride. Ethnic minority students make up one-fifth of the student population. 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.
With students’ ages ranging between 17 and 75, the average undergraduate student age at CU-Denver is 25, while our graduate students average 33. They represent a distinctive mix of ages and backgrounds, coming to class in faded jeans to corporate attire. Around 80 percent of our students are employed, and 52 percent attend part-time. Forty-three percent are enrolled in graduate-level courses.

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. Such 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-Denvers 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 non-traditional fields of study with a focus on issues that relate to city, state, national, and international issues. 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.
CU-Denver conducts research and other creative activities that encompass both a 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 international importance.
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 a 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 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 track sites 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.
AURARIA HIGHER EDUCATION CENTER
The University of Colorado at Denver is located on the Auraria Higher Education Center campus, also home to the Metropolitan State College of Denver and the Community College of Denver. The three institutions share a library (operated by CU-Denver), administrative and classroom buildings equipped with cutting-edge technologies, and related facilities on the 127-acre Auraria campus. Certain courses and programs are offered cooperatively by the Auraria educational institutions.
Because we share academic facilities, our students have the level of resources found at much larger public universities. The campus library blends its book-filled shelves with computer laboratories that help students link to resources they need for success in the classroom. Professional child care and development centers provide high-quality, reasonably priced on-campus day care for students’ preschool children. CU-Denver students may take physical education courses as well as participate in numerous recreation and intramural athletics programs at Auraria’s state-of-the-art fitness facilities.
The campus bookstore, located in the historic Tivoli Student Union, is the largest in the Rocky Mountain region. Housed in a renovated brewery originally built in the 1860s, the Tivoli Student Union also provides restaurants, specialty shops, student services and government offices, and many comfortable areas for studying.
In addition to the Tivoli Student Union, the Auraria campus contains other reminders of Denvers past—historic Ninth Street Park, St. Cajetans Church/Performing Arts Center, St. Elizabeths Church, Emmanuel-Sherith Chapel/Synagogue/Art Gallery, and Golda Meir House.
The historic is complemented by the modem on the Auraria campus. All classroom buildings are being upgraded to include Internet access, network connections, acoustic and lighting enhancements, and a full range of multimedia equipment to facilitate high-tech studies. The innovative King Academic and Performing Arts Center features a 300-seat courtyard theater, a five-story concert hall (550 seats), a recital hall (200 seats), and performance support space. The building also houses 29 classrooms and 7 enhanced classrooms and computer labs.

Undergraduate Admissions
CU-Denver seeks to identify applicants who are likely to complete an academic program of study. 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
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 that affect the students 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.O. Box 173364 Denver, CO 80217-3364 303-556-3287 admissions@cudenver. edu
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

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. The student may satisfy the MAPS requirements by successful completion of:
• courses taken at CU
• courses taken at other institutions of higher education
• additional high school credits
• credit-by-examination programs
• 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 & 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 completing the General Education Development (GED) Test.

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 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)
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 that will apply to the bachelor of science (business administration) degree. 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 semester 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 & 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 Music for audition information, 303-556-2727.
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:
• probability of success in the academic program to which admission is desired
• the quality of prior academic work
• age, maturity, and noncollegiate achievements
• 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-carried or faxed copies are not official.
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.)
Applicants to the Colleges of Arts & Media and Liberal Arts and Sciences who have fewer than 12 semester hours (18 quarter hours) of college work completed must also 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
CU-Denver Catalog2002-03


12 / Our University, Our Campus
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 students 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.
The College of Business and Administration generally limits its transfer of business course credits to those that 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 CU-Denvers 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-Denvers core curriculum. The College cif Business and the College of Engineering have specific courses required of all students, that 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 metropolitan Denver 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.
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.
See CU Succeed, AP, and IB Credit Equivalency Chart.
Accelerated Baccalaureate Program (CAB)
The CAB (Curriculum for an Accelerated Baccalaureate) program is a unique partnership between CU-Denver and select high schools that 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:
• taking regular college courses in the high school taught by CU-Denver faculty
or college-qualified high school faculty, through the CU Succeed program
• concurrently enrolling in designated courses on the CU-Denver campus
• 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 from CU-Denvers College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and College of Arts & 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 the 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:
• A copy of DD Form 214
• 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
CU-Denver Catalog 2002— 03


Undergraduate Admissions /13
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 intra-university transfers are made by the college or school to which the student wishes to transfer.
Students in Extended Studies programs 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 considered 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 and at www. cudenver.edu.
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-refondable 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. O. 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 and at unvw.cudenver.edu.
Admission for Non-Degree Students
Persons who have reached the age of 20 and who want to take university courses, but do not plan to work toward a University of Colorado degree, may be admitted as nondegree 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.
Students considering changing from nondegree 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 non-degree 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 bachelors 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 Arts & Media, 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.

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 in-state 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 students 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 ofSttidentsfior 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 minors 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 ones 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 drivers 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, in-state 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.
FINANCIAL AID
Director: Elbe Miller Office: NC 1030 Telephone: 303-556-2886 E-mail Address: finaid@carbon.cudenver.edu World Wide Web Address: http://finaid.cudenver.edu
The Office of Financial Aid offers more than $30 million in financial aid awards to qualified students each year. If the students financial aid application materials ate 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 Fellowships, Colorado Deans Scholars award, and Colorado Regents Scholars award are subject to different deadlines and are reviewed by other CU-Denver departments (the Graduate School, 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.
CU-Denver Catalog 2002- 03


Tuition, Fees and Financial Aid / 25
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 undergraduate students according to federal guidelines.
3. Be enrolled for a minimum number of credits as specified oh 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 Merit Award, 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 bf 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 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 2000-2001, the following monthly budgets were used for room and board, transportation, and personal expenses:
$500 for students living at home with parents; $1,057 for students not living with parents. Resident tuition and fees for a full-time student were approximately $ 1,455 per semester, and non-resident tuition and fees were approximately $6,322 per semester. These amounts will probably increase by approximately 5% for the 2002-2003 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 2002-2003, a self-supporting student is one who is 24 years old (born before 1/1/79) 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, refer to the Schedule of Courses each term for specific information. Higher or lower minimums may be required for individual awards (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 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. Refer to separate brochure for application procedures. Teacher certification students may apply for financial aid and are considered undergraduate students for financial aid purposes.
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 nonresidents.
Refunds and Repayments—Any refund of tuition and fees resulting from withdrawal or reclassification of tuition status must be returned to the recipient’s financial aid awards before any payment is made to the student. Beginning with the fall 2000 term, if a recipient of federal financial aid withdraws from all classes on or before the 60% point in time in the term, that student may be required to repay a portion of his/her financial aid.
The federal government has defined that the recipient has only earned a portion of their financial aid, and the earned aid is directly proportional to the percentage of time the student attended classes up to and including the 60% point in time in the term. The rest
CU-Denver Catalog2002-03


26 / Our University, Our Campus
of the financial aid is defined as unearned financial aid and must be returned to the federal financial aid programs. Unearned aid includes both the amount allocated to tuition and fees and the amount allocated to the student for other educational expenses. For a complete description of these requirements, request a copy of the Financial Aid 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. Students must reapply and meet priority dates each year. Application materials for the next summer term are available beginning January 1.
Award
Students ate 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 and enrollment status. 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 Work-Study—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 Leveraging Educational Assistance Partnership Grant—A need-based grant for resident undergraduates who have not yet obtained a bachelors 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.
5. Governor’s Opportunity Scholarship—
A need-based grant program for first-time resident freshmen who have a zero family contribution or whose parents earn less than $26,000.
Scholarships
Following is a list of the major scholarships
that are offered at CU-Denver.
The following programs are funded by the

Students must be enrolled at CU-Denver for at least one course during the term to be eligible to register inter-institutionally. Registration is on a space available basis. Interinstitutional
courses are evaluated for transfer credit and are not included in a CU-Denver students grade-point average.
POOLED COURSES AT METROPOLITAN STATE COLLEGE OF DENVER
Certain courses in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences have been pooled with similar courses at Metropolitan State College of Denver (MSCD). CU-Denver undergraduate students may register for any of the pooled courses listed in the CU-Denver Schedule of Courses. Restrictions apply to the pooled courses:
1. CU-Denver graduate students are not eligible to register for MSCD pooled courses.
2. MSCD courses will not be included in the University of Colorado grade-point average. MSCD courses will appear on the University of Colorado transcript and will count in the hours toward graduation.
3. MSCD courses cannot be used to meet specific course requirements toward the major without prior written approval of the students dean.
4. CU-Denver students who wish to take non-pooled MSCD classes must apply directly as a non-degree student to MSCD, and pay tuition and fees to MSCD. Non-pooled classes will not appear on the University of Colorado transcript and will not be used in determining course loads for financial aid eligibility. Students may request an MSCD transcript to be sent to CU-Denver at the end of the term to determine if credit can be transferred.
5. MSCD common pool courses will not satisfy residence requirements at CU-Denver.
The last 30 semester hours applied toward the baccalaureate degree must be taken in residence at CU-Denver.
6. CU-Denver students taking MSCD common pool courses are subject to the MSCD grading policy and student code of conduct.
Withdrawal from the University
To withdraw from the University of Colorado at Denver, students must drop all courses for the semester. During the first 12 days of the semester (8 days for the summer) students must use either the telephone or Web registration system to drop courses. Consult the Schedule of Courses for information on using the telephone registration system. Courses dropped during this period are not recorded on the student’s permanent record.
After the 12th day of the semester (8th day in the summer), through the 10th week (7th week for summer), students must submit a withdrawal form with the instructors approval. Courses dropped during this period will be recorded on the student’s permanent record with a grade of W.
Students seeking to withdraw after the 10th week (7th week for summer) must petition the associate dean of their school or college.
A student who stops attending classes without officially withdrawing from the university will receive grades of F for all course work during that term.
Deadlines for dropping module and intensive courses appear in the Schedule of Courses.

32 / Our University, Our Campus
EXPLANATION OF IF AND IW
An IF or IW\s 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 IF or IW is 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 /ITsets 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 by 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 CU-Denver Extended Studies classes. The student must reregister 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, IF and IW grades for courses that are not completed or repeated are changed to an Tor 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 lof 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 = 3) by the number of hours for each course. Total the hours, total the credit points, and divide the total points by the total hours. Grades of P, NC, ***, W, IP, IW, and IF are not included in the grade-point average. IFs that are not completed within one year are calculated as Tin 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, graduate, and non-degree graduate GPAs are calculated separately. Enrollment in a second undergraduate or graduate program will not generate a second undergraduate or graduate GPA.
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 available through the Online Student Information Web page, or through the Voice Response Registration System. See the Schedule of Courses or the Online Student Information section 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. Note: academic support services are available to all students through the Center for Educational Opportunity Programs,
NC 2012, 303-556-2065; the Student Advocacy Center, NC 2012, 303-556-2546; and the Center for Learning Assistance,
NC 2006,303-556-2802.
Originality of Work
In all academic areas it is imperative that 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
Undergraduates. Students should make an appointment with the advising office of their school or college to determine what requirements remain for graduation. Students intending to graduate must file a Diploma Card with their school or college during the first week of their graduation term. Students will not be officially certified to graduate until a final audit of the students record has been completed approximately six weeks after the end of the term. After students have been certified to graduate, they must reapply to return to CU-Denver.
Graduates. Students must file an Application for Candidacy and a Diploma Card with the Graduate School Office on the Denver campus during the first week of their graduation term. Check with the Graduate School for more complete information. Students will not be officially certified to graduate until a final audit of the student’s record has been completed approximately six weeks after the end of the term. After students have been certified to graduate, they must reapply to return to CU-Denver.
Commencement. In early March, informational brochures will be mailed to students eligible to participate in the May spring semester commencement. In early October, information regarding the December commencement will be mailed to students who graduated in summer term or expect to graduate in fall term. Information will be provided about ordering special display diplomas, fittings for caps and gowns, and obtaining diplomas and transcripts with the degree recorded.
Official Transcripts
The official transcript includes the complete undergraduate and graduate academic record of courses taken at all campus locations or divisions of the University of Colorado.
It contains the signature of the registrar and the official seal of the university.
Official transcripts are available approximately three weeks after final exams. A transcript on which a degree is to be recorded is available approximately eight weeks after final exams.
On the Denver campus, transcripts may be ordered through the Online Student Information Web page (special handling options are not available through this service), in person, by fax (303-556-4829), or by mail from the Transcript Office, University of Colorado at Denver, Campus Box 167, P.O. Box 173364, Denver, CO 80217-3364.
Requests should include the following:
1. student’s full name (include given or
other name if applicable)
2. student number

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:
1. The right to inspect and review the students 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 students 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 pan 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 students educational records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.
One exception that 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.
Family Policy Compliance Office U.S. Department of Education 400 Maryland Avenue, SW Washington, D.C. 20202-4605

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 students 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:

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:

University Policy on Sexual Harassment
The University of Colorado is committed to fostering a positive learning, working, and living environment. The university will not condone sexual harassment or related retaliation of or by any employee or student.
I. Sexual Harassment Policy
A. Sexual harassment and related retaliation are prohibited.
1. For the purposes of this Policy, sexual harassment means unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and 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, living conditions, and/or educational evaluation; (2) submission to or rejection of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for tangible employment or educational decisions affecting such individual; or (3) such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work or academic performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or educational environment.
Hostile environment sexual harassment, described in subpart (3) above, is unwelcome sexual conduct that is sufficiently severe or pervasive that it alters the
conditions of education or employment and creates an environment that a reasonable person would find intimidating, hostile, or offensive. The determination of whether an environment is “hostile” must be based on all of the circumstances. These circumstances could include the frequency of the conduct, its severity, and whether it is threatening or humiliating.
Examples of Policy violations include: a professor offers a higher grade to a student if the student submits to the professor’s sexual advances; a supervisor implicitly or explicitly threatens termination if a subordinate refuses the supervisor’s sexual advances; and repeated and unwelcome physical touching or severe and pervasive comments of a sexual nature that create an intimidating and offensive work or classroom environment.
2. For the purposes of this Policy, retaliation means adverse actions against individuals because they have, in good faith, reported instances of sexual harassment or participated in or have been witnesses in any procedure to redress a complaint of sexual harassment.
Examples include: an employee who makes a report under this Policy about a supervisor’s behavior is given an unsatisfactory performance review by that supervisor that is inconsistent with the employee’s actual performance; a student is notified of a report under this Policy made by another student and subsequently sends threatening messages to the student who made the report.
B. Making false complaints or providing false information regarding a complaint is prohibited. It is a violation of this Policy for anyone to make an intentionally false accusation of sexual harassment or related retaliation or to provide intentionally false information regarding a complaint.
C. Individuals who violate this Policy will be disciplined or subjected to corrective action, up to and including termination or expulsion.
II. Obligation to Report
A. General Obligation to Report
In order to take appropriate corrective action, the university must be aware of sexual harassment or related retaliation. Therefore, anyone who believes that s/he has experienced or witnessed sexual harassment or related retaliation should promptly report such behavior to a campus sexual harassment
officer (see end of this section) or any supervisor (see part B below).
B. Supervisor’s Obligation to Report Any supervisor who experiences, witnesses, or receives a written or oral report or complaint of sexual harassment or related retaliation shall report it to a campus sexual harassment officer. This section of the Policy does not obligate a supervisor who is required by the supervisor’s profession and university responsibilities to keep certain communications confidential (e.g., a professional counselor or ombudsperson) to report responsibilities. Each campus shall designate in its campus appendix to this Policy the supervisory positions that qualify under this exception.
III. Procedures
A. Reports or complaints under this Policy will be addressed and resolved as promptly as practicable after the complaint or report is made. It is the responsibility of the sexual harassment officer(s) to determine the most appropriate means for addressing the report or complaint. Options include
(1) investigating the report or complaint in accordance with paragraph C below, (2) with the agreement of the parties, attempting to resolve the report or complaint through a form of alternative dispute resolution (e.g., mediation), or (3) determining that the facts of the complaint or report, even if true, would not constitute a violation of this Policy.
The campus sexual harassment officer(s) may designate another individual (either from within the university, including an administrator, or from outside the university) to conduct the investigation or to manage an alternative dispute resolution process. Anyone designated to address an allegation must adhere to the requirements of this Policy and confer with the sexual harassment officer(s) about his or her progress.
B. All reports or complaints shall be made as promptly as feasible after the occurrence. (A delay in reporting may be reasonable under some circumstances, as determined on a case-by-case basis. An unreasonable delay in reporting, however, is
an appropriate consideration in evaluating the merits of a complaint or report.)
C. If an investigation is conducted, the alleged victim and the respondent shall have the right to:
1. At the commencement of the investigation, receive written notice of the report or complaint,
CU-Denver Catalog 2002-03


36 / Our University, Our Campus
including a statement of the allegations;
2. Present relevant information to the investigator(s); and
3. Receive, at the conclusion of the investigation, a copy of the investigators report, to the extent permitted by law.
D. At the conclusion of an investigation, the investigator shall prepare a written report which shall include a statement of factual findings, and a determination of whether this Policy has been violated. The report will be presented for review to the person or committee designated by the Chancellor, or,
in the case of System Administration, the President.
E. The reviewing person or committee may consult with the investigator, consult with the parties, request that further investigation be done by the same or another investigator, or request that the investigation be conducted again by another investigator. The reviewing person or committee may adopt the investigators report as his/its own or may prepare a separate report based on the findings of the investigation. The reviewing person or committee may not, however, conduct its own investigation or hearing. Once the reviewing person
or committee has completed its review, the report(s) shall be sent to the campus sexual harassment officer(s), the alleged victim, and the respondent, to the extent permitted by law. The report shall also be sent to the Chancellor, or, in the case of System Administration, to the President. If a chancellor is the respondent or alleged victim, the report shall be sent to the President.
If the President or the Secretary of the Board of Regents is the respondent or alleged victim, the report shall be sent to the Board of Regents.
F. If a Policy violation is found, the report(s) shall be sent to the disciplinary authority for the individual found to have violated the Policy,
and the disciplinary authority must initiate formal action against that individual. The disciplinary authority may have access to the records of the investigation.
G. When formal action is initiated against an individual found to have violated the Policy, the sexual harassment officer shall ensure that the victim is appropriately advised of the resolution of that action.
H. A report of the action taken against an individual for violation of this Policy shall be retained permanently in the individual’s personnel file
or student educational file. Other investigation records shall be maintained for a minimum of three (3) years or for as long as any administrative or legal action arising out of the complaint is pending.
I. All records of sexual harassment reports and investigations shall be considered confidential and shall not be disclosed publicly except to the extent required by law.
J. Complaints Involving Two or More Campuses: When an alleged Policy violation involves more than one campus, the complaint shall be handled by the campus with disciplinary authority over the respondent.
The campus responsible for the investigation may request the involvement or cooperation of any other affected campus and should advise appropriate officials of the affected campus of the progress and results of the investigation.
K. Complaints By and Against University Employees and Students Arising in an Affiliated Entity: University employees and students sometimes work or study at the work site or program of another organization affiliated with the university. When a Policy violation
is alleged by or against university employees or students in those circumstances, the complaint shall be handled as provided in the affiliation agreement between the university and the other entity. In the absence of an affiliation agreement or a provision addressing this issue, the university may, at its discretion, choose to (1) conduct its own investigation, (2) conduct a joint investigation with the affiliated entity, (3) defer to the findings of an investigation by the affiliated entity where the university has reviewed the investigation process and is satisfied that it was fairly conducted, or (4) use the investigation and findings of the affiliated entity as a basis for further investigation.
IV. No Limitation on Existing Authority No provision of this Policy shall be construed as a limitation on the authority of a disciplinary authority under applicable policies and procedures to initiate disciplinary action. If an individual is disciplined for conduct that also violates this Policy, the conduct and the discipline imposed shall be reported to a campus sexual harassment officer.
If an investigation is conducted under this Policy and no policy violation is found, that fact does not prevent discipline of the alleged perpetrator for unprofessional
conduct under other applicable policies and procedures.
V. Information and Education
A. The President’s office shall provide an annual report documenting:
1. the number of reports or complaints of Policy violations;
2. the categories (i.e., student, employee, or other) and genders of the parties involved;
3. the number of Policy violations found; and
4. examples of sanctions imposed for Policy violations.
B. Each campus shall broadly disseminate this Policy, distribute a list of resources available on the campus to respond
to concerns of sexual harassment and related retaliation, and develop and present appropriate educational programs. Each campus shall maintain information about these efforts, including a record of how the Policy is distributed and the names of individuals attending training programs.
VI. Related Policies
A. Administrative Policy Statement “University Policy on Amorous Relationships Involving Evaluative Authority” provides that an amorous relationship between an employee and a student or between two employees constitutes a conflict of interest when one of the individuals has direct evaluative authority over the other and requires that the direct evaluative authority must be eliminated.
B. For related complaint, grievance, or disciplinary processes, refer to Article II, 3 B.7 of the Rules of the Faculty Senate (for faculty), State Personnel Board Rules (for classified employees), and campus student disciplinary policies and procedures (for students).
VII. Review of the University Policy The President shall initiate a review of this Policy within two years.

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 Deans office. The appropriate Dean or his/her representative may dismiss a student from a particular class for disruptive behavior, while the Student Discipline Committee may recommend to the Vice Chancellor for Academic and Student Affairs to withdraw, suspend, permanently expel, and/or permanently exclude the student from
the campus. Appeal questions concerning disruptive behavior should be directed to the Academic Deans office when withdrawal from a class is involved, and to the Director of Student Life when suspension or expulsion from the university is involved.

Actions available to campus officials include, but are not limited to: asking those involved in inappropriate behavior to cease and desist; requesting offender(s) to leave the Auraria campus; denying or restricting use of facilities or services; calling Auraria Public Safety for assistance; billing offender(s) for any physical damages; pressing civil charges; and referring student(s) to the Director of Student Life.
STUDENT LIFE POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

Any person may refer a student or student group suspected of violating this code to the Director of Student Life. Persons making such referrals will be asked to provide information pertinent to the case. The Director of Student Life will make a determination as to the seriousness of the case. This will be done in most situations by asking the student(s) involved in the case to come in for an administrative interview to determine what actions, if any, will be taken by the university. Students will be notified in writing of the results of such administrative reviews.
The Director of Student Life has the authority to:
1. Dismiss the case.
2. Take no further action other than talking with the accused student(s).
3. Issue a university warning (a statement that a students behavior has been inappropriate, and any further violation of university rules will result in stronger disciplinary action).

RELEASE OF DISCIPLINARY INFORMATION
Access to any students 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 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 may 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 Committees decision.
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.

CU Online—Denver
CU Online is the virtual campus of the University of Colorado at Denver, with eleven collegiate and professional development programs offering more than 200 courses via the Internet. CU Online offers core curriculum and elective courses in a variety of disciplines, all the same high-quality courses taught throughout the University of Colorado system.
DELIVERY MEDIA
Students taking online courses through CU Online enjoy a greater scheduling flexibility than in a traditional classroom by logging into class a couple of times each week at the times of their choice.
Instructors delivering their courses through CU Online utilize cutting-edge technology, such as steaming audio, video, and multimedia slide shows for presenting course content.
A number of technologies allow students to interact with the instructor and their peers: threaded discussions in a bulletin board-type area, live discussions in an online classroom, e-mail, and collaborative workspaces.
PROGRAMS
CU Online offers courses in liberal arts and sciences, arts and media, business, education, engineering, public affairs, and architecture and planning. Complete online degree programs, including a Bachelor of Arts in sociology, and masters degrees in business administration, engineering (engineering management and geographic information systems), and public administration, with more programs under development (check the Web site for latest developments). All of the courses may be applied to a degree program at the University of Colorado at Denver or may be transferred to a students home institution, pending approval.
FACULTY
Online courses follow the same faculty governance policies as the established on-campus courses. All CU Online faculty members are approved by the department and usually teach on-campus courses as well. Many of the instructors are experts who are working in the field in which they teach and bring vast knowledge and resources from their industry to their online teaching.
HYBRID COURSES
Students taking online courses through CU Online enjoy a greater scheduling flexibility, but sometimes feel they need more of the structured environment found in a
traditional classroom. This is why CU Online now offers a hybrid between these two learning environments. A Hybrid course is one which uses technology delivered instruction (web, cd-rom, etc.) as a substitute for a portion of the instruction that a student would otherwise receive in a campus classroom or lab. Hybrid courses meet approximately 50% of the normal classroom hours on campus where students do the remainder of their work online.
SUPPLEMENTAL COURSES
CU Denver Online also supports faculty using web-based courseware to augment their traditional classes. More and more faculty are using instructional technology to post their syllabus, lecture notes, hold online quizzes and practice exams, and to coordinate relevant resources available on the web, in the libraries and through other media.
As students take courses with CU Online, they gain valuable skills for using the Internet as a tool for learning, research, and communication, taking them far beyond the boundaries of the traditional educational environment. They have the opportunity to participate in the new global classroom, with a world of higher education at their fingertips. We are well on our way to achieving the goal of providing students with the most comprehensive set of online courses, services and resources, coupled with the best online learning experience of any institution of higher education in the world. Participation in web-based learning positions students to become life long learners, and helps them to develop invaluable skills to take advantage of global learaning opportunities for their entire career.

sponsoring lectures and programs that are open to the general public.
STUDY ABROAD
OIE assists students wishing to make international study an integral part of their college experience. Study abroad programs vary in length from two weeks to one academic year, and are also offered during the summer and winter breaks. Although many programs are for language study, a substantial number of programs are taught in English; thus, foreign language is not always required for participation. These programs are available to students in all disciplines, from architecture to business to liberal arts, in a variety of countries worldwide. Students can pay CU-Denver tuition and study abroad on an exchange program for an academic semester or year. Either CU-Denver or transfer credit may be earned abroad, giving students the opportunity to fulfill degree requirements while experiencing a new culture.
Since tuition and program fees are generally affordable and financial aid is available and can be used for study abroad, it is a feasible option for almost every CU-Denver student. Information and advice on scholarships such

The International Training, Education, and Research Academy (ITERA) 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 ITERA 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.
ITERA is also an active contributor to the Total Learning Environment of the CU system. Older, well-established programs like the National Veterans’ Training Institute (NVTI) combine with enterprising new ones such as the Latino/a Research and Policy

Federal agencies like the United States (U.S.) Department of Defense, U.S. Department of Labor, and the Department of Veterans Affairs have sponsored ITERA 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.

With a diverse faculty committed to excellence in teaching, research, scholarship, andprofessional work, the college provides students with a broad range of learning opportunities.
Special Activities and Programs
The college provides a diverse range of opportunities that 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 Prague, Rome, Turkey, and Spain. 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.

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 students GPA falls below a 3.0, then he or she will be placed on academic probation beginning the following 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 students 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 program chair or 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 instructors 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 that may result in suspension or expulsion. Information on codes of conduct and grievance procedures are available from the University of Colorado at Denvers Office of Enrollment and Student Affairs.

The architecture programs 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.
Second, 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 aims to educate students who will become leaders in the discipline and profession of architecture.
The Department of Architecture, along with the Department of Planning and Design, offers a Bachelor of Environmental Design (B.Envd.) on the Boulder campus. The Department of Architecture also offers two
graduate degrees on the Denver campus: the Master of Architecture (M.Arch.) and the Master of Urban Design (M.U.D.).
The following statement from the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is responsible for accrediting all architecture programs in the United States, should help a student choose the appropriate degree program:
“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 pre-professional degree offered by the College of Architecture and Planning is the B.Envd. The professional degree offered by the college is the Master of Architecture (M.Arch.), which is fully accredited by the NAAB.
The Master of Architecture, the college’s accredited professional degree for students intending to seek licensure as architects, offers two distinct paths. One track, the M.Arch./4+2, is offered to students who have completed the college’s B.Envd. or any other pre-professional design degree from any NAAB-accredited institution. A second track, the M.Arch./3.5, is available to students who have completed an unrelated undergraduate or graduate degree, or to students who hold professional architecture degrees from other countries, but who seek to obtain an NAAB-accredited architecture degree. Students holding professional architecture degrees from foreign institutions will be given advanced standing commensurate with their previous educational experiences.
THE MASTER OF ARCHITECTURE (M.ARCH.) M.Arch./4+2
The M.Arch./4+2 is intended for students who have completed the college’s B.Envd. or any other pre-professional architecture degree from any NAAB-accredited institution. This six-year plan of study, with completion of both the four-year undergraduate B.Envd. offered on the Boulder campus and the accredited

POST-PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMS The Post-Professional Program
The Post-Professional Degree Program is a mid-career, post-professional intensive course for those individuals in the design fields who seek to expand their knowledge and to advance their professional careers. In this program, students have the opportunity to study recent developments in their design fields resulting from advances in information technology, new theories and methods, and emergent discoveries and associations. The program currently offers two primary areas of study, the Master of Architecture II and the Master of Urban Design degree programs. 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 can be examined, advanced, and extended. The programs have been designed to be both flexible and interdisciplinary so as to provide students with a broad range of options that can accommodate and respond to each students own interests and study agenda through course work, independent study, or optional training.
Post-Professional Program: The Master of Architecture II
The Master of Architecture II is an advanced degree program that 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-year or six-year first-professional degree in architecture. They may enter the Master of Architecture II program in any semester of the academic year.
The Master of Architecture II program does not offer an NAAB first-professional degree; it is an advanced studies program for those who already hold this first-professional degree.
Students in the program must complete 30 hours of credit in required, recommended, and elective course work to qualify for the Master of Architecture II degree. To be eligible for graduation from the program, students must complete 12 credit hours of advanced design studio (ARCH 6150/6151 orUD 6600/6601) in the degree project sequence and 12 credit hours in required and/or focus-area course work particular to their area of study. The remaining 6 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 II degree is as follows:
SEMESTER ONE
Design Studio: 6 credits
Focus-area required/
recommended course work: 6 credits Elective course work: 3 credits
SEMESTER TWO

Landscape Architecture
Chair, Department of Landscape Architecture, Gene Bressler 303-556-3382
The mission of the landscape architecture program is to explore design as the means to engage a range of evolving interactions between the ethics, places, and methods of landscape intervention and transformation. Our studies focus on compelling issues inherent to the urban, suburban, rural, and wilderness environments of the Rocky Mountain region. The insights and possibilities generated from these local studies provide an understanding of landscape design that is transferable at many scales and to other lands and cultures.
Specific objectives of the landscape architecture program are:
1. to develop excellence in the design process and design: exploring the strategies, methods, and skills to study, synthesize, experiment with, make, and evaluate design precedents, landscape design,
and design processes
2. to learn and extend core themes of the profession that include landscape architectural theory and precedents, technologies and materials, natural and cultural systems, and communications and inquiry media: studying the means to inform and develop one’s ideas, to convey one’s values, and to criticize one’s work
3. to provide a working knowledge of the institutional framework within which the design process occurs: building a strong understanding of and the skills required in professional practice, including management, leadership, marketing, ethical conduct, and legal issues
4. to engage service in ways that apply and integrate course work, research,
and creative works to real world situations— participating with and involving others in opportunities to implement, enhance, demonstrate, communicate, and evaluate ideas and skills—and that provide measurable benefits.
We aim to link theory with practice, history with change, technology with invention, and designers with their constituents.
CU-Denver Catalog2002-03


58 / College of Architecture and Planning
The curriculum prepares students for landscape architectural practice and research as presently known, and provides the setting to question, invent, test, and advance knowledge and capability of the profession. It consists of sequential and integrated design studios, core lecture and seminar courses, and elective opportunities, including a professional internship. Students develop capabilities in design within studio courses. Core themes, theories, precedents, technologies, and skills of the profession are developed iri the lecture and seminar courses. Curriculum integration is achieved through deliberate internal coordination efforts and collaboration with other programs within the college as well as other CU-Denver colleges and schools. The curriculum provides opportunities that facilitate the offering and testing of new courses, which respond to timely interests of faculty and students.
Professional practitioners representing consulting firms and governmental agencies of regional, national, and international distinction share in and contribute to the life of the program. They teach courses, participate in reviews, host internships and office visits, give presentations, exhibit their works, and mentor with students and faculty.
Successful graduates pursue diverse practices in public and private arenas, and make positive differences in the quality of our environment.
MASTER OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE (M.L.A.) Prerequisites
Students are expected to have achieved a basic level of computer literacy. A Graphics Workshop is recommended for students who do not have a background in drawing and model building. The workshop is scheduled each year before the beginning of the fall semester.
Program Requirements
The landscape architecture program offers professional and advanced professional graduate degree curricula leading to the degree Master of Landscape Architecture (M.L.A.). The first-professional degree program, requiring a six-semester sequence of course work totaling 90 credit hours, is fully accredited by the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board (LAAB) and recognized by the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA). Students completing the colleges Bachelor of Environmental Design on the Boulder Campus—or completing an undergraduate design degree at another institution — are given advanced standing in the three-year program and must complete at least 65 semester hours of credit. The advanced professional degree program, for qualified students having already earned a first professional
degree in landscape architecture or related discipline, requires 48 credit hours. Advanced standing may be commensurate with prior academic accomplishment.

Concentration Areas
The curriculum delivers required courses that enable students to learn and develop core themes of the profession inclusive of LAAB standards, with emphasis placed on studying the means to develop one’s ideas, to convey one’s values, and to criticize one’s work. In addition, the curriculum offers four concentration areas from which to choose elective courses offered by the program and other units within the college and university in order to explore advanced topics, challenge normative paradigms, and develop new knowledge and capabilities. Majors from other areas are invited to enroll in landscape architecture electives.
Areas of Concentration
Urban Design
Advanced Landscape Architectural Technologies
Landscape Planning and Management
History, Theory, and Criticism
These broadly defined areas of concentration reflect topics and issues related to the program’s location and context in Denver and its larger metropolitan and regional contexts. They also reflect faculty interests and resources available from within the college, university, and area. Students may pursue one or more concentrations within the required 24 elective hours, of which 18 are non-group related. Students are encouraged to consult with their assigned faculty advisor or other mentors as they make their decisions. (Note: 6 elective credit hours are to fulfill requirements in each of landscape architectural technologies and history and theory group.)
Urban Design
Denver, the surrounding metropolitan areas, and the newly emerging urban areas within the greater region provide limitless issues, topics, and situations fueling interests in urban design. The field of urban design is complex and crosses many disciplines, including architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, real estate development, law, engineering, and the social sciences.

Urban and Regional Planning
Chair, Department of Planning and Design, Dwayne Nuzum 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 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 this one, 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.
The Department of Planning and Design, along with the Department of Architecture, offers a Bachelor of Environmental Design (B.Envd.) degree on the Boulder campus.
The Department of Planning and Design also offers the Master of Urban and Regional Planning (M.U.R.P.) graduate degree on the Denver campus. The Master of Urban and Regional Planning is fully accredited by the national Planning Accreditation Board, and prepares students for professional careers in planning and for further study.
For further details on the B.Envd., see the University of Colorado at Boulder catalog. Additional details about the masters program follow.
THE MASTER OF URBAN AND REGIONAL PLANNING (M.U.R.P.)
Prerequisites
Students are expected to have achieved a basic level of computer literacy, and should be familiar with PC or Apple operating systems.
A Graphics Workshop is recommended for students who do not have a background in drawing and model building. The workshop is scheduled each year before the beginning of the fall semester.
Program Requirements
The Master of Urban and Regional Planning is the colleges accredited degree for students intending to practice as planners. With no advanced standing, candidates for the M.U.R.P. 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 course work can be applied for advanced standing.
Students who receive the colleges 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 to the M.U.R.P. with advanced standing. These students can earn the M.U.R.P. degree after completing a minimum of 42 credit hours, which will include the core courses and an approved concentration. Students holding the colleges 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 M.U.R.P. degree upon completion of a minimum of 36 credit hours, including 21 credit hours of cote courses and all requirements for an approved concentration. The above conditions for advanced standing apply only to students who graduated from the colleges 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.

Areosof Concentration
The concentrations and elective courses enable students to explore in depth an area
of special interest. Students should, however, build on the expertise that 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 supports four official concentrations:
(1) physical planning, (2) environmental planning, (3) economic development planning, and (4) urban design. A set of foundation courses is identified in each concentration, plus additional supporting 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 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 growths 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.
Urban Design Concentration:
Planners are called upon with increasing frequency to organize spaces at a scale greater than that of a building site, but less than that of an entire community. This concentration provides the essential abilities needed to contribute to the development of these intermediate-scale spaces. Among these are skills in spatial analysis, design synthesis, real estate finance, and graphic expression.
In addition to the four official concentrations, students have the choice of defining their own concentration.

Inter-Departmental Programs
The Department of Architecture, the Department of Planning and Design, and the Department of Landscape Architecture share the idea that the complex prqblems of the built environment are best addressed through collaboration among the various design and planning disciplines, and through developing bodies of knowledge about the built environment. To further these ends, the departments and program jointly offer the advanced research degree, the Ph.D. in Design and Planning.
Ph.D. in Design and Planning
Program Director, Willem Van Vliet 303-492-5015
The colleges interdisciplinary doctoral program 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 bachelors degree, although most will have also completed a masters 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 complete 12 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 students 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 that applies will depend upon the students 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 students faculty advisor, and are to be completed within two years of 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 that applies will depend upon the students 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 students faculty advisor, and are to be completed within two years of admission to the program. They may count toward 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 (GIS). A minimum of 3 hours.
The applicability of a students prior course
work will be decided by the graduate studies committee upon review of a students 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 18 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
CU-Denver Catalog 2002-03

bachelors 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 10 hours consists of seminars 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 programs 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 course 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 compose the student’s dissertation committee.
Students must register for a minimum of 5 dissertation credits each semester of their dissertation work. If unable to register for at least 5 credits, they must request a leave of absence from the Ph.D. program until able to complete the minimum dissertation requirement. Students may take up to a year’s leave of absence before they are disenrolled from the program.
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 that survey the literature of the field and that 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 5 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.
Post-Professional Program
THE MASTER OF URBAN DESIGN
Program Information, Dwayne Nuzum 303-556-3382
The Master of Urban Design is an interdisciplinary advanced degree program in which students articulate issues that integrate the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, transportation, real estate, and political affairs. The mission is to address the total realm of urbanization through research, collaboration and leadership development within the inclusive “public domain.” The program makes full use of its setting in the core of downtown Denver, and explores the evolving environments of settlements, villages, towns, cities, metropolises, and megalopolises in Colorado as wide ranging planning laboratories for the studio-based projects or thesis
studies. The urban design problem solving opportunities are further enhanced by the extensive public-private connections the college has established throughout a rapidly growing state.
There are three general plans of study:
1) a 30-credit-hour program for students who have received a five- or six-year professional degree in architecture, landscape architecture, or planning (i.e. B.Arch, M.Arch., M.L.A., M.U.R.P.); 2) for international students, a four-year accredited professional degree and other accepted qualifications would permit entry into a modified one-calendar-year long program that requires 39 credit hours for graduation; 3) a 66-credit-hour program, including 6 hours of summer internship, is also available for students who hold a preprofessional (non-accredited design) degree; 4) for students from all other undergraduate degree programs, a customized three-year curriculum of 96 credit hours is required including an internship component of 6 credit hours during one summer. In all cases fall semester is the preferred entry time.
The emphases of the urban design degree focuses on three primary concerns that affect both horizontal and vertical developments in tactical and strategic timeframes:
I. history and theory of urbanization in the inclusive public domain
II. systems and processes used in the making
of the urbanized public domain
III. designing the urban public domain
The ultimate goal of the program is to educate students to be effective in the public domain as problem originators, venture designers, idea linkers, and decision makers. These urban design degree graduates through creative problem solving, management, advocacy, and implementation can achieve outstanding ends in the professional, public, and development process.

and its urban environment. The college also views participation in meaningful school and community activities as an indicator of potential success.
A student applying to the College of Arts & Media must indicate the particular degree program that he or she wishes to enter. Admission to the College of Arts & Media is based on a two-part application and evaluation: academic and creative/artistic.
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions at the University of Colorado at Denver evaluates the academic application. Additionally, all undergraduate programs at the College of Arts & Media require an incoming artistic/creative assessment, which may take the form of an audition, the submission of a creative portfolio, a writing sample, interview or other such measure. The artistic/creative review is conducted by the appropriate department or program, (see specific programs for more information). Both the academic application and the artistic/creative review are evaluated as a whole to determine admission and must be completed before an admissions decision can be made. Creative material should be mailed directly to the specific department or program. No admission decision will be made until the candidate’s file is complete and the department has forwarded artistic/creative review results to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Note: Please be aware that CU-Denver does not return creative materials and will not assume any liability or responsibility for original materials submitted by an applicant that are lost or damaged while in its possession. Candidates are urged to complete and file their applications as soon as possible, especially those who are seeking financial aid. Applicants will be notified promptly if additional information is required. No admission decision will be made without complete information.
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.
Note: Students who apply and/or are admitted past the published campus deadlines for priority admission should note that they may find that College of Arts & Media courses are not available and therefore these students may not be able to follow their curriculum as desired. Late-admit students should consult their faculty and/or CAM advisor to determine alternative curriculum plans.
TRANSFER STUDENTS
The departments and programs of the College of Arts & Media evaluate course work taken at other institutions to determine their
equivalency for transfer to degree programs. Students who have completed more than 15 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 considered for admission to the College of Arts & Media, 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 2.5 GPA for all work applicable to the undergraduate degree, and a 3.0 GPA in specific program-related courses. Students with less than an overall 2.5 GPA can be admitted if they have at least a 2.0 GPA on the last 15 semester hours of applicable course work, at least a 2.0 GPA in CAM-based 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 15 credit hours. Pooled applicants are offered admission as space is available.
For information about specific policies on transfer of credit, consult a CAM advisor.
INTRA-UNIVERSITY TRANSFER
Students who want to transfer to the College of Arts & Media from another college or school of the University of Colorado at Denver must formally apply to the College of Arts & Media.
Students will be evaluated only on course work that applies to the degree program. Generally, this will exclude course work of a vocational nature and courses in activity PE and remedial subjects. Students who have completed at least 15 applicable semester hours will be evaluated on their college work; students with fewer than 15 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 15 credit hours. Applicants with less than a 2.0 GPA in related courses (from CU or other institutions) and overall CU GPA of less than 2.0 will be denied admission even though they may meet other requirements for consideration.
TRANSFER OF MAJOR WITHIN THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND MEDIA
Undergraduate students who wish to transfer from one department to another within the college must submit a Change of Major form, which may be obtained in any CAM department. The form is reviewed by the CAM advisor. Students will be contacted if there are major-specific requirements
CU-Denver Catalog 2002- 03


Graduation Requirements / 67
(ie. audition, etc.) that need to be met prior to change of major approval.
MUSIC AUDITION
All entering freshmen and transfer students applying for admission to music degree programs, with the exception of the Music Industry Studies program, must complete an audition. Contact the Department of Music & Entertainment Studies, 303-556-2727, for information on scheduling an audition.
Academic Policies
Students are referred to the General Information section of this catalog for a description of academic policies that apply to all undergraduate students at CU-Denver. The policies which follow apply specifically to the College of Arts & Media (CAM).
ACADEMIC ADVISING
New freshmen and transfer students with fewer than 40 hours will start at the Academic Advising Center (303-352-3520) for their initial advising. There the student will be introduced to the university and its policies, as well as the university core requirements. Basic degree requirements will be explained, although the student should consult the Major advisor or the College of Arts & Media (CAM) advisor for specific questions.
The CAM advisor assists in the transition from the advising center to the college.
The CAM advisor will assist with degree and college requirements, and any remaining core requirements. The CAM advisor will assist with graduation check-out procedures and any general CAM advising questions.
For CAM advising information or questions, contact the CAM advisor at 303-556-8302.
If and when the student has determined a major, they should meet with a faculty advisor in their major department. The faculty advisor will be responsible for advising as well as verifying the completion of the major program for graduation. Students should contact the department to determine their major advisor.
For each Spring semester, an advising STOP is placed on each College of Arts & Media students registration. Students must see their major advisor before the hold is released and they are allowed to register.
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 students 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 academic 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 on probation status; however, students must achieve a minimum 2.0 cumulative CU GPA to meet graduation requirements.
Academic 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 academic suspension.
A students 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.
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 Policies Committee.
Second Suspension
Students who fail to meet the conditions of continued probation for a second time or fail to meet the semester GPA requirements while on first suspension are placed on second suspension for an indefinite period of time.
Students on second suspension may be readmitted to the college only by petition to the CAM Academic Policies Committee. Students will not be considered for readmission unless they have demonstrated improved academic performance at the college/ university level.
CAM ACADEMIC POLICIES COMMITTEE
The CAM Academic Policies Committee is responsible for the administration and interpretation of the academic policies of the college as established by the faculty. Questions about interpretation of policies may be directed to the deans office.
INDEPENDENT STUDY
The College of Arts & Media has very specific policies concerning eligibility and registration for Independent Studies. Students should consult the CAM advisor or their faculty advisor for specific eligibility criteria and registration procedures.
The amount of credit to be given for an independent study project shall be determined at the time of registration. A maximum of 12 credits in independent study may apply toward the bachelors degree.
INTERNSHIPS/COOPERATIVE EDUCATION
Students seeking academic credit from employment experience should consult The Career Center section of this catalog.
Undergraduates must have attained junior standing and have a minimum 2.75 GPA.
A maximum of three hours of internship credit per semester and nine hours overall is allowed.
INCOMPLETE GRADE POLICIES

Film and Video Production
The Film and Video Production program at the University of Colorado at Denver is intended for students seeking professional preparation for careers in film, video, and related industries. Program delivery is realized in a unique “2 + 2” offering with Community College of Aurora through the Colorado Film Video Instructional studios (CFVI), located on campus at the former Lowry Air Force base.
CU-Denver Catalog 2002- 03


70 / College of Arts & Media
The program is designed to award B.F.A. degrees with emphases in film/video writing, producing and directing, film/video post production, or cinematography/videography, and to supply advanced training to professionals already working in the film and video industries.
Upon completion of the B.F.A. course of study, students will be prepared for employment in the television, industrial video, educational video, and feature film production industries, or for entry into graduate study programs. Students may choose to focus their concentration on documentary or narrative styles while finding their own balance of technical and creative concerns. Employment opportunities lie in writing, producing, directing, production management, production design, camera, lighting, audio for film and video, audio post for film and video, post production graphics and animation, editing, and multimedia production and integration, as well as a host of business management opportunities in the cable, network, and film industries. As Denver is the world capital of the cable television industry, graduates may work locally or seek employment in the national or world markets.
The initial two years of film/video technology (CCA, FVT) courses give students the fundamental understanding of technical, creative, and storytelling issues and exposure to disparate paths of study and future employment. The second two years of film and video (CU-Denver, FILM) provide students the opportunity to focus and hone their craft, find their own expressive “voice,” and to graduate with a professional quality “show reel” of work, production credits, and/or completed screenplays, teleplays, and project proposals.
Students may satisfy core requirements at the Auraria campus or other approved locations, while nearly all film and video classes are conducted at the CFVI studios facility at Lowry. This arrangement allows for the maximization of equipment and facility resources available to the student by the CCA/CU partnership. The CFVI facility includes a 17,000-square-foot primary building, the Avid Center at the $7 million all-digital ETTC building, and the 600-seat movie theater. Dormitoiy space is available to full-time film and video students at the campus at Lowry.
All students interested in applying for film and video major status must apply to the CFVI program director. Continued major status is subject to annual review.

The Department of Music and Entertainment Industry Studies combines studies in recording arts, multimedia, music business, and music performance in order to prepare students for the global marketplace. Through partnerships with entrepreneurs, corporations, and non-profit organizations, we aspire to a leading position in the region and nation in the planning and realization of current and future media.
The Department of Music and Entertainment Industry Studies offers courses in the disciplines of Music (MUS) and Performance Music (PMUS). Students interested in studying music will pursue the Bachelor of Science in Music with areas of emphasis in performance, recording arts, music management, or music industry studies.
Music
The music program at the University of Colorado at Denver is intended for students seeking preparation for professional careers in music related to performance, recording, broadcast business, and the entertainment industries. The four-year music program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.
The specialized curricula offered by the program lead graduates to local, regional, and national positions in audio research, record and production companies, arts administration, and audio engineering, as well as graduate studies at leading universities and conservatories. Additionally, many graduates establish careers as owners of booking agencies, publishing companies, management firms, and recording studios.
All music applicants, except those entering the Music Industry Studies program, must pass an entrance audition before being
accepted to the program. Contact the depart- : ment for information on the music audition.
Recording Arts: This area of study addresses contemporary technology in studio recording, sound reinforcement, and electronic music.
It is intended to develop skills for creative musicians, producers, and technicians, using both analog and digital technology.
Music Management: This program prepares graduates for careers in such fields as artist management, music publishing, music merchandising, concert promotion, record production, and the development of skills relative to the rapidly expanding telecommunications industry.
Music Industry Studies: This program prepares the student to work in the music industry. Courses include a non-performance music core with selected classes in music business and music technology. It is intended to develop a broad range of skills in management, promotion, publishing, producing, the record industry, and audio engineering.
Performance Music
Students gain performance skills in classical, jazz, commercial, and experimental music styles.

The Department of Visual Arts offers professional instruction in five interrelated areas of study: art history, drawing/ painting, photography, sculpture, and multimedia studies. The department provides an educational environment where artists and art historians of promise and motivation can explore the horizons of their own talents in the midst of intense critical dialogue. This dialogue is generated by their peers; by distinguished visiting artists, scholars, and critics; and by a faculty comprising artists and art historians of acknowledged accomplishment.
The primary educational experience for the student is centered on the knowledge and skills gained from rigorous and structured courses offered by the various areas of the Visual Arts Department, as well as the rich academic offerings throughout the university. Each student is routinely exposed to many aesthetic or academic positions through encounters with faculty members and visitors. The Visual Arts Departments efforts are devoted not only to the refinement of visual skills, but to the articulation and cultivation of the mind. Students must bring creative force and imagination to their own development, for these qualities cannot be taught-they can only be stimulated and appreciated.
Education in the visual arts encompasses a comprehensive knowledge of and direct experience with the various media of drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, multimedia, and other forms. Supporting this enterprise is the development of an understanding of art theory, a knowledge of the methods and materials of art making, and examination of the diverse approach to examining the art object in history. Central to the practice of art history are critical writing and analysis.
A variety of opportunities are open to the visual arts major. The degree can be specific preparation for graduate study or a more general background for fields related to the arts, including arts administration, museum and gallery work, and art conservation. Internships are available for student majors with a number of organizations in the Denver area, and an Art Resource Center has been established in the department to serve as a clearinghouse for information about study
abroad programs, jobs, and continuing education in the visual arts.
Graduating seniors receiving the B.F.A. degree are required to have a thesis show during their last semester of study. These exhibitions are scheduled in the fall and spring terms only.

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 will be considered if they have a 2.6 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 lastly hours, if the GPA in the last 24 hours is at least 2.6. Pooled applicants are

offered admission as space is available. For information about specific policies on transfer of credit, consult the undergraduate business program coordinator.
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, if the GPA in the last 24 hours is at least 2.6. 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 the business program coordinator. 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 students 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
A CU 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 Administration 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 10 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 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 2.0 GPA to enter as a business minor, and must have a 2.0 GPA overall, plus a 2.0 GPA in business courses 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 3000. Twelve of these 18 hours must be taken while in residence at CU-Denver. 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 6 hours 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.

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 that 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 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, 303-556-2250.

The faculty of the College of Business Administration, College of Engineering and Applied Science, and the College of Liberal
CU-Denver Catalog 2002—03


80 / College of Business Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration
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 following 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 students 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 3-hour business elective to earn the required number of hours in business.
Residence. At least 30 semester hours of business courses (including the business area of emphasis) must be completed after a students admission to the College of Business. 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 students 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. Changes after that time will delay graduation.

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 24 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 3-hour upper-division business elective to earn the required number of hours in business. In addition, they must complete ISMG 3000, MGMT 4370, and MKTG 3050. 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 24 semester hours, including any business core courses.
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
CU-Denver Catalog 2002— 03


82 / College of Business Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration
(excluding the economics core courses) may be counted toward the 120 credit hours required for the B.S. degree in business; (4) Students must complete 30 hours of actual business course work, including the area of emphasis, after acceptance to the College of Business;
(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
b. A maximum of 6 houfs 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 students term load.
Repeating Courses
A failed course (grade of F) may be repeated; however, the Twill 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 the business program coordinator. 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 the business program coordinator 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 Cor better must be earned to receive business degree credit. Generally, only nonbusiness electives or lower-division, nonbusiness 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 nonbusiness required and elective courses from those offered by MSCD. Grades of Cor 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 the business program coordinator, 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 6 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 the business program coordinator to determine their acceptability toward degree requirements, and the program coordinators written approval is required prior to the students 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
CU-Denver Catalog 2002- 03


Undergraduate Areas of Emphasis / 83
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 he/she 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.
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 advisors 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. All B.S. (Business Administration) students must declare a major area of emphasis by the time they have accumulated 60 credit hours.
Information about each area of emphasis follows:
Accounting
Program Director: Bruce Neumann Telephone: 303-556-5884
Accounting courses are offered in several fields of professional accountancy at the intermediate, advanced, and graduate levels. They provide preparation for practice in one or more of the following fields:
Financial Management Management Control Systems Auditing
Financial Accounting Managerial Accounting Tax Accounting Teaching and Research
In all of these fields a thorough knowledge of the social, legal, economic, and political environment is needed. A high degree of analytical ability and communication skill is indispensable.
Courses in English composition, speech, ethics, and logic are desirable. Courses in statistics and information systems, beyond the required Business Core courses, are highly recommended.

Students planning to pursue accounting as a career may take more than the above required hours. Many students complete a total of 30 hours of accounting, often taking two accounting courses each semester in their junior and senior years. Students should work closely with the accounting faculty and business advisors in planning their accounting programs.
The accounting program offers several 4000/5000-level courses. Students with credit for a 4000-level course cannot receive credit for the corresponding 5000-level course. Graduate students should take 5000-level courses.
Accounting students often specialize in a particular topical area of accounting. Examples of these specializations include:
FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING
Recommended Electives ACCT 4240-3. Advanced Financial Accounting

Graduate study in accounting is receiving increasing emphasis by professional organizations and employers. Students meeting admission requirements should consider continuing their education at the graduate level.
Finance
Program Director: Clifford E. Young Telephone: 303-556-5816
Beginning in fall 2002, the principal area of study in finance is a Financial Management Specialization. This specialization will provide students with skills they need in finance and accounting to succeed in jobs in finance and financial management, particularly in the corporate area. Increasingly, the business community has affirmed that students need skills in both the accounting and finance areas. The financial management specialty incorporates knowledge of financial accounting, cost and managerial analysis, corporate financial management, financial institutions and markets, investments, and accounting information systems and information technology. Job opportunities include accounting positions that are not CPA-track, finance/accounting positions with financial institutions and in the field of business finance. The specialization provides a solid accounting/finance background for other business positions as well.
Pre-requisites: ACCT 2200 and ACCT 2220 are prerequisites for the required accounting courses. In addition, FNCE 3100, FNCE 3200, and ACCT 3054 (and their prerequisites) are prerequisites for the required finance courses.

Information Systems
Program Director: Clifford E. Young Telephone: 303-556-5816
The information systems area is designed for those who wish to prepare themselves for careers as professional data processing managers or as technical specialists in business and government. The student develops those technical skills and administrative insights required for analysis of information systems, the design and implementation of systems, and the management of data processing operations. The emphasis is on management
information systems—systems for the collection, organization, access, and analysis of information for the planning and control of operations. Students should note that not all courses are offered each semester. ISMG 2200 is a required prerequisite for the information systems area and applies as a business elective.
Beginning in fall 2002, Information Systems will provide a new expanded emphasis at the undergraduate level. This specialization will provide students with skills they need to enter the workforce in the area of information systems. The particular focus for these individuals will be in the area of application development. The market has indicated a particular need for students with bachelors degrees that can immediately enter the workforce in this area. CU-Denver will be well-situated to provide this needed area through the proposed
program.

GRADUATE BUSINESS PROGRAMS (M.B.A./M.S.)
Associate Dean: Kenneth L. Bettenhausen Director, Graduate Admissions
and Advising: Linda J. Olson
The Graduate School of Business Administration offers programs leading to the Master of Business Administration (M.B.A.), and the Master of Science (M.S.) in specific fields of business and health administration.
In addition, the Master of Business Administration for Executives (Executive M.B.A.) is offered as a multi-campus program of the Graduate School 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 International Association for Management Education (AACSB). The M.S.A. and M.S. in Health Administration are 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. Call 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 candidates likelihood to succeed in the program:
ACADEMIC RECORD
The bachelors 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 post-baccalaureate degree. A minimum score of400 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 1-800-GMATNOW; or visit their Web site at www.gmat.org. 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.

CU-Denver Catalog 2002-03


86 / College of Business Administration and Graduate School of Business Administration
Early applications are encouraged because, if admitted, the student receives priority for registration time assignment. Applications received after published deadlines with complete supporting documentation, scores, fees, and transcripts will be considered, but do not receive priority handling.
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, December 1 for summer session admission, March 1 for fall semester admission, and July 1 for spring semester admission.
Academic Policies for Graduate Students
ADVISING
As soon as possible after being admitted, students should schedule an appointment with a graduate advisor to discuss general degree requirements, plus determine if any background course work may be required and/or what Common Body of Knowledge courses might be waived for the M.S. degree.
DEGREE PLAN
All students are encouraged to formulate a degree plan with an advisor during their first term in residence. 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 program director, a maximum of 12 semester hours of graduate business course work may be transferred to the M.B.A. (9 semester hours for M.S. degrees) from another AACSB-accredited masters program, if completed within the last five years with a grade of at least B (not B-). Courses taken at other CU campuses are considered transfer hours and are included in the 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. Course work already applied toward a masters degree will not be accepted.
TIMELIMIT
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 five 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 five years, and with reasonable continuity. Students enrolled in a dual degree will have seven years to finish their curriculum.
FORMER STUDENTS
Any CU-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 I 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
To file an Application for Admission to Candidacy and a Diploma Card, contact the graduate advising office at 303-536-5700. We encourage students to apply the semester prior to the semester of graduation to 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 a student has completed 9 or more credit hours toward degree requirements without maintaining a 3.0 GPA, s/he shall be placed on probation.
Probation will be released only when the cumulative GPA has been raised to at least 3.0. If the GPA deficiency is not cleared within one calendar year (three semesters) or completion of as many as 9 credit hours, whichever occurs first, s/he will be suspended. Students with unusual circumstances who are unable to meet the time limits will have 30 days from the date of suspension activation to petition for
a prolonged probationary period. Suspended students may not attend any campus of the University of Colorado including Continuing Education/Extended Studies. Suspended students may seek to be re-admitted after waiting 12 months (three semesters) from the term in which they were suspended. A Petition Form plus new Graduate Application Part I must be submitted along with the appropriate fee. Generally, petitions prove successful only on rare occasions.
PASSING GRADES
Any grade below a C(2.0) 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 may be repeated; however, the failed grade will 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 Cor better; otherwise, an Twill 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 students control are documented. The petition to drop or withdraw must be approved by the associate dean for academic programs and the course instructor(s).
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 a non-degree application form from the graduate programs office, 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

MASTER OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION (M.B.A.)
Program Director: AjeyO Banerjee Telephone: 303-556-5838
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 different configurations: INDIVIDUALIZED, COHORT, 11-MONTH (full time), Health Administration, E-BUSINESS, and the EXECUTIVE M.B.A. program (see relevant section). All M.B.A.S have the same curriculum requirements; they differ only in their focus, the flexibility of course scheduling, and the time required to complete the program. The E-BUSINESS, 11-MONTH, and Executive M.B.A.S are lockstep programs (no open electives, no specialized tracks), where all the students complete all program requirements together. No course transfers, waivers, or substitutions are permitted.
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 five years plus one semester.
Online courses add additional flexibility.
You can complete all degree requirements online or combine online and campus courses to broaden your choice of electives or to fit your business travel schedule or personal learning style.
The COHORT M.B.A. enables the student to complete the program in three 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, the COHORT program provides a unique and rewarding educational experience.
Developed in conjunction with the Center for Information Technology Innovation — a CU-Denver cooperative of 32 chief information officers and IT executives— the E-BUSINESS M.B.A. prepares students for a leadership role in a technology-dependent business. The program integrates knowledge and skills from both traditional M.B.A. and information technology (IT) disciplines.
A graduate should be prepared to manage a company’s IT infrastructure or its IT-dependent business functions. The E-BUSINESS M.B.A. program is truly a program designed by CIO’s for educating tomorrow’s technological business leaders.
For additional information, call 303-556-6610.
The 11-MONTH M.B.A. is an accelerated full-time program. It 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 Temple Building on the 16th Street Mall in Denver, which houses the innovative Richard H. and Pamela S.
Bard Center for Entrepreneurship Development. For additional information, call 303-556-5911.
11-MONTH and E-BUSINESS M.B.A. courses may be transferred to the INDIVIDUALIZED M.B.A. program. Candidates for all M.B.A. programs complete a total of 16 classes (48 semester hours) comprised of 9 required courses (27 hours), one international business elective (3 hours), one information technology elective (3 hours), and 5 elective
graduate business courses (15 hours).

Master of Science Programs / 89
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, 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 (CBK) 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. BUSN courses lower than 6800 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.
No comprehensive exams are required.

D. SECONDARY AREA
(9 hours)
Accounting is increasingly diverse and linked to many business decisions. Accountants may eventually work as systems designers, chief financial officers, cost analysts, budget officers or chief executive officers. Students will be better prepared for their careers if they develop competencies in a related field, which may be chosen from a single discipline such as finance, information systems, entrepreneurship, health administration, marketing, or management. The accounting faculty strongly encourage students to gain additional expertise in finance and/ or information systems. Alternatively, a self-designed secondary area might best achieve a student’s individual objectives (must be approved by the program director).
A self-designed secondary field must have a common theme or objective if it crosses several disciplines. For example, a secondary area in information systems might include an accounting technology course, a data base management course and an e-commerce course. On the other hand, a finance secondary

area might include two finance courses and a cost management (accounting) course or a strategic management course. When a BUSN course is a pre-requisite for a secondary area, it can be included in the secondary area. Consult a schedule of courses for information about current course offerings and a current catalog for course descriptions.

The University of Colorado seal, adopted in 1908, depicts a male Greek classical figure seated against a pillar and holding a scroll. A burning rorc h framed in l aurel is placed beside h.im. The Greek in scr iption means "Le t your lighr s hin e . " According tO Denver designer H e nry Reed, the classical design was used because Greek civilization "sta nds as the criterion of culture." The l aurel symbolizes hon or or success, the youth of the figure suggests the " morning o flife, " and the scroll r eprese nt s written language. Ulelco me to the University of Color ado at Denver.

Institut i o n s are bound b y rhe provisions of this statute and are nor free ro make exceptions ro rhe rules set forth. Students are initially classified as in-stare or our-of-stare for tuition purposes at the time of application. The classification is based upon information furni hed b y rhe student and from other relevant so u rces. After the student's status is determined, it remains CU-Denver Catalog 2002-03 unchange d in the absence of sarisfacrory evidence to the contrary. O n ce a st udent i s class ified as a non resident for tuition purposes, rhe student must peti t i on for a change in classification . Pet i tion must be submitte d NO LATER THAN THE FIRST OFFI CIAL DAY OF CLASSES of t he term for whic h the student wishes to be classified as a resi dent. It is pre ferred t h at p etit i ons be rece i ved 30 days prio r to the beginn i ng of rhe t erm . Late petitions will nor be considered unti l the next semester. Spec ific i n for mati o n may b e obtained from the Office of Admissions. The final decision regardi ng t uition sta tus rests with the univer sity.

T h ose who are under 23 years of age and u nemanc i pated assume the domici l e of their parent or court-appointed legal guard i an. An u nema n c ip ated minor's p arent must , therefore, have a legal domicil e i n Colorado for one year or more befo r e th e minor may be classified as an in-state s tudent for tuition purposes.

University Policy on Sexual Harassment The Univers iry of Colorado is com mitred ro fostering a positive learning, working, and living environment. The universiry will not condo n e sexual harassment o r related retaliation of or b y any employee or student. l. Sexual Harassment Policy A. Sexual har assment and related retaliation are prohibited. I. For the purposes of this Policy, sexual h arassment means unwel co me sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when: (I) submi ssion to such conduct is made e ith er explicidy or impl i cidy a term or co nditi on of a n indi vidual's employ m ent, living cond iti ons, and/or educat i onal eva luati on; (2) submission ro or reject i on of such conduct by an individual is used as the basis for tangible employment o r educational decisions affecting suc h individual; or (3) such conduct has th e purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual's work or aca demi c performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive working or ed u cational environment. Hostil e environment sexual h a rassm ent, described in subpart (3) above, is unwelco m e sexual cond uct that is sufficien d y severe or pervasive that it alters the cond iti ons of ed u cat i o n or employ ment and creates an e n v ironment that a reasonable person would find intimidating, hostile, or offensive. The determination of whether a n e n v ironment is " h ostil e " must be based on all of the cir cumstances. These circumstances could include the frequency of the conduct, irs sever iry, and whether it is threat en ing or humiliating. Examples of Policy violations include: a professor offers a higher gra d e to a student if rhe student submit s ro the professor's sexual advances; a supervisor implicidy or explicidy threatens termination if a subo rdin ate refuses rhe supervisor ' s sexual advances; and repeated and unwelcome physical couching or severe and pervasive comments of a sexual nature that create an intimidating and offensive work or classroom environment. 2. For the purposes of this Policy, retaliation means adverse actions agai nst individuals because they have, in good faith , reported instances of sexual harassment or participated in or have been witnesses in any procedure to redress a compl aint of sexua l harassment. Examp les include: an employee w h o makes a repotr under this Policy abo ut a supervisor ' s behavior is given an unsatisfactory performance review by that superv i sor that is inconsistent with the e mpl oyee ' s actua l performance; a student is n otified of a report under chis Policy made by another student and subsequendy sends threatening messages to the student who made rhe report. B . Making false complaints or providing false information regarding a complaint is prohibited. It is a vio l at i on of chis Policy for anyone to make an inten tionally false accusation of sexual harassment or related retal iarion or to provide intentionally fal se information regarding a complaint. C. Individuals who violate this Policy will be disciplined or subjected to corrective action, up to and including termination or expu l s i on. II. Obligation to Report A. General Obligation to Report In order ro rake appropriate corrective actio n , the uni versiry must be aware of sexual h arassment or related retaliation. Therefore, a n yone w h o b elieves char s/he has experienced or witnessed sexual h a ra ssment or relared r e t aliation should promptly report such behavior to a campu s sexual harassment University Policies / 35 office r (see end of this section) or any s upervi sor (see parr B bel ow) . B.

Each campus shal l desi gnate in irs campus appendix to rhis Policy the supervisory positions that qualifY under this exception. III. Procedures A . Reports or complaints under this Policy will be addressed and resolved as prompdy as practicab l e after the compl a int or report is made.

Options include (I) in vestigating the rep orr or complaint in accorda n ce w i th paragrap h C below , (2) w ith the agreeme nt of the parries, attempting ro resolve the report or compl aint through a form of alternative dispute resolution (e. g., mediation) , or (3) determining that the fact s of the comp l aint or report , even if true , wo uld not const itut e a violation of this Policy. The campus sexual harassment officer(s) may design are a nother individual (either from w ithin the universiry, including a n administrator, or from outside the universiry) to conduct rhe investigation o r to manage an alternative dispute reso luti on pro cess. Anyone designated to address an a ll egation must ad h ere to the requirements of this Policy and confer with the sexual harassment officer(s) about his or her progress. B . All reports or compl aints s haH be made as prompdy as feasibl e after the occ urr ence. (A delay in reporting may be reasonable under some circumstances, as determined on a ca e-by-case basis.

Study abroa d p r ograms vary in length from rwo weeks ro one academic year, and are also offered duri n g the summer and winter breaks. Although many programs are for lang u age study, a subs t a n tial number of programs are taught in E n g l ish; thus , foreig n language is not always req u ired for participa tion .

POST-PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMS The Post-Professional Program The Post-Professional Degree Pr ogram is a mid-career, post-professio n a l int ensive course for those individuals in the design fields who see k to expand their knowledge and to adva nce their professional caree rs. In this program, studenrs have rhe opportunity to study recent developments in their design fields resulting from advances in information technology, n ew theories and m e th ods, and emergent discoveries and assoc i at i ons. The program currenrly offers two primary areas of study, rhe Master of Arch it ecture II and the Master o f Urban Design degree programs. Each of these programs has a research orien tation and agenda, and their general inrent is to create an educational contex t within which rhe fundamenta l practices of arc hit ecture and urbanism ca n be examined, advanced, and extended. The programs have been designed to be both flexi ble and interd isciplin ary so as to provide students with a broad range of options rhat can accommodate and respond to each student's own interests and study agenda through course work, independent study , or optio n a l training. Post-Professional P r o g ram: The Moster o f Architecture II The Master of Architecture II is a n advanced degree program rhar pro vides irs students w i t h a range of op p ortunities for exploring a nd extending their knowledge of rhe pract ice of architecture. Students applying for admission to the program must have been awarded a five-year or six-year first-professiona l degree in architecture. They may ente r the Master of Architecture II program in a n y semester of the academ i c year. The Master of Architecture II program does not offer an NAAB first-professional degree; it is an advanced studies program for those w h o already hold this first professional degree. Students in rhe program must co mpl ete 30 h ours of cred it in required, recommended, and e l ective course work to qualifY for rhe Master of Architect ure II degree. To be eli g ibl e for graduation fro m rhe program, s tud ents must complete 12 credit hours of advance d design studi o (ARCH 6150/6151 or UD 6600/660 1) in the degree project sequence and 12 credit hours in required and/or focus-area course work particu lar t o their area of study. The remaining 6 credit hours are elective course work. A typical sequence of course work within a focus area l eading to the award of rhe Master of Architecture II degree is as follows: Landscape Architecture / 57 SEMESTER ONE Design St udio: 6 credits Focus-area r eq uired/ recommended course work: 6 credits Elective course work: 3 credits SEMESTER TWO Design Studio: 6 credits Focus-area required/ recommended course work: 6 credits Elective course work: 3 credits Landscape A r chitecture Chair, Department of Landscape Architecture, Gene Bressl er 303-556-3382 The mission of rhe landscape architecture program is to exp l ore desig n as the means to engage a range of evolving interactions between rhe eth ics, places , and methods of l andscape int e r venrion and transformation. Our studies focus on compe llin g i ssues inherent to the urban, suburban, rural , and w ild erness environments of rhe Rocky Mountain region. The insights and possi bilities genera red from these l ocal studies provide an understanding oflandscape design that i s transferable ar many scales and to other l a nd s and cultu res. Specific objectives of the landscape architecture program are: I. to develop excellence in rhe design process and design: exploring the stra t eg ies, methods, and skills to study, sy nth esize , experiment with , make, and evalu ate design precedents, landscape design, and design pr ocesses 2. to learn and extend core themes of the profession that include landscape architec tural theory a nd precedents, technologies and materia ls, natural and c ultural systems, and communications and inquiry media: studying the means to inform and develop one ' s ideas, to convey one's values, and to criticize one's work 3. to provide a working knowledge of the institutional framework wit hin which rhe design process occurs: build ing a strong understanding of and the skills required in profess i ona l practice , including man agement, lead e r ship , marketing, ethical conduct, an d l ega l issues 4. to engage serv ice in ways rhar app l y and integrate course work, research, and creat ive works to real wo rld s ituationsparticipating wirh and involving others in opport unitie s to implement, e nh ance, d emonstrate, communicate, an d evaluate ideas and skills-and rhar provide measurable ben efits. We aim to link theory wirh practice , history wirh change, technology with invention , and designers wirh their constituents . CU-Denver Catalog 2002-03

60 / ColLege of Architecture and PLanning These tasks require a high order of ability: to amass an d m anipulate information , to represent and m odel essential phenomena and processes, to s imul ate futures, and to judge outcomes havin g diverse dimensions. They also require the ability to portray and co mmuni cate key concep ts, diagnoses , a nd actions, and to h arness knowledge abo ut all th e key actors on the scene in order to understand their n eeds, motives, and possible responses to the public actions that plans provoke. Underlying these classes of ab ilities is a base of knowledge that easil y overreaches the bounds of any one discipline. Planners must understand theories regarding urban and regional process, co n cepts of presentation, communi catio n an d negotiation , t echno l og ies for the depict i on and m a nipul a t i on of spat ial information, mean s by which to document, judge, and forecast c hange in urban syste ms, private economic motives an d constraints, the behavioral inclinations of all the major classes of players on rhe urban cene, th e mesh of laws that em power planning and govern private action, and the broader political economy of regional systems. eed less to say, the education of planners can on l y b egin in the universi ty . It mu s t be a life-long pursuit, and plann i ng programs, including this one, are becoming increasingly supportive of the contin uing ed u cat i on needs of professionals. It is the i ntellectual exc itement of thi s ongoing pursuit of knowledge that draws man y to the field . The Department of Planning and Design, along with the Department of Architecture, offers a Bachelor of Environmental Design (B.Envd.) degree on the B o ulder camp us. The Department of Planning a nd Design also offers the Master of Urban and Regional Planning (M. U.R.P.) grad u ate degree o n th e Denver camp us. The Master of Urban and Regional P l anning is fully accredited by the natio nal P l anning Accreditation Board, a nd prepares students for professional careers in planning and for further study. For further derails on the B.Envd., see rhe University of Col orado at Boulder catalog. Additio nal details about the master ' s program follow. THE MASTER OF URBAN AND REGIONAL PLANNING (M. U . R . P . ) P rerequisites Students a r e expected to have achieved a basic level of computer literacy, and should be familiar with PC or Apple operating systems. A Graphics Workshop is recommended for students who do not have a background in drawing a nd model building. The work hop is schedu l ed each year before the beginning of the fall semester. CU-Denver Catalog 2002-03 Program Requirements The Maste r of Urban and Regional Planning is rhe college ' s accred it ed degree for st ud e nts int e ndin g to practice as planners. With n o adva nced sta nding, can did ates for the M.U.R.P. degree must comp l ete a minimum of 51 credit hours of graduate work, including all core courses (27 credit hours), a concen narion (15 credit hours minimum), and add iti ona l electives (9 credit hours) . Entering swdents who have engaged in the study or practice of planning elsewhere may petition the faculty during their initial semester to determine w h ether any cre dit w ill be awarded or degree req u irem ents relaxed as a result of these prior activities. A maximum of27 credits of course work can be applied for advanced standing. Students who receive the college's Bachelor of Enviro nmental Design ( B .E nvd. ) degree on the Boulder campus and who have maintained a GPA of at l east 3.0 will be admitted to the M.U.R.P. w ith advanced standing. These students ca n earn the M.U.R.P. degree after completi ng a minimum of 42 credit hours, which will i n clude the core courses and an approved co nc entration. Srudenrs holding the college ' s B.Envd. degree w h o a l so comp l eted th e undergraduate planning option with a GPA of at l east 3.0 (and with a grade of at least 3.0 in ENVD 4320, Planning St udio III) will, in additi o n , receive a waiver with credit for URP 6630, Planning Studio I. These students will earn the M.U.R.P. degree upon completio n of a minimum of36 credit hours, including 2 1 credit hours of core courses and all requirements for a n a pp roved concen tration. The above conditions for advanced standi n g a ppl y only to stu d ents who graduated from the college's undergraduate program within the l ast five years. Those who graduated earlier may r eceive advanced s tandin g at the discretion of the head of the graduate program in urban a nd regional planning, in consulta tion with program faculty.

Planning Studio II A thesis option (URP 6950, Thesis Research and Programming , and URP 6951 , Thesis) is available primaril y for st ud ents who are inter ested in pursuing more advanced academic training in planning or related fields . Thesis work will s ub stitute for Studio II. Areas of Concentration The co n centrations and e l ective co urses enab l e st ud ents to exp l ore in depth an area of special interest. Students sho uld , however, build on the expertise that they already possess. This can be done by either focusing on a related specialty, or by increased specialization in a previously acq uired area of expertise. The program supports four official concentrations: (l) physical planning, (2) environmental planning, (3) economic development planning , and (4) urban design. A set of foundation courses is identified in each concentration, plus additional supporting electives. Physical Planning Concentratio1z: Physical planning addresses the spatial arrangement of the environment, from the scale of the project to the scale of th e region, and irs fitness for human activ i t ies. Physical planners establish the policy and r egulatoty context for design development, practicing as land use or comprehensive planners , or in specialties such as preservation, transportation or open space planning , real esta t e develop ment , and urban design. Environmenta l Planning Concentration: All urban and regional planning actions impact the e nvironment in some manner, a nd enviro nm ental planners must manage these impacts, both pro-actively and re-actively. The environmental planning concentration introduces planners to the policy and l eg i s l ative i ssues s urroundi ng the e nvironm ental implications of planning actions, as well as to methods for their assessment, control , and mitigation. Economic Development Planning C o 1zcentration: Economic development aims to amass withi n communities and region the resources-jobs, capital, tax base-needed to sustain or improve the quality oflife and insure opportunities for all within th e private econ omy , facilit ated through appropr i ate public act i ons and services . Planners fost er econo mi c change as diagnosticians, stra t eg ists, and promoters, gauge growth ' s effect in light of environmental capacities, manage its social benefits , mitigate irs negative consequences , and fashion its imprint on the ph ysical land scape oflocaliries, regions, states, and nations. Students pursuing this concentration should seek as well to become conversant with the essentials of physical or environmental planning. Ur ban Design C o ncentr ation: Planners are call ed upon with increasing frequency to organize spaces at a scale greater than that of a buildin g site, but less than that of an entire community. This concentration provides the essential abili ties needed to contribute to the development of these intermediate-scale spaces. Among these are skills in spatial analysis, design synthe sis, real estate finance, and grap hic expression. In addition to the four official concentrations , students have the choice of defining their own concentration.

Post-Professional Program THE MASTER OF URBAN DESIGN Program Information, Dway n e uzum 303-556-3382 T h e Master of Urban Design is an interdi sc iplinary a dvan ced d eg r ee progr a m in which students a rti culate issue s tha t integr ate rhe fields o f architecture, lands c ape a rchite c ture, urb an planning, transportation , real estate, and political affai rs. T h e mission is to address rhe total realm of urbanization through r esea r c h , collaboration an d leader s hip develop m ent w ithin rhe inclusiv e " publi c domain." The program m akes full use of irs err in g in rhe core of d owntown Denver , a nd explores th e evol v ing e n v ironm ents of serdemenrs, vill ages, towns , cities , m etro polises , and m ega lopolises in Colorado as wide r a nging plan nin g l a b o ra tories for rh e s tudi o-base d proj ec t s or thesis s tudies. The urban d esign probl em solving opportunities are further enhance d by rhe extensive public private connec tion s the college ha s establis hed through our a rapidly growing stare. There are rh r ee general plans of study: I) a 3 0-credir-hour program for stud ents who have received a liv e or six-year profe ssio nal d egree in a rchitecture, landscape architecture , or planning (i.e. B . Arch , M . Arch., M . L.A., M.U.R.P.); 2) for international students, a four-year acc r ed it e d professiona l degr ee and other accepte d qualific ations would permit entry into a modified one-calendar-year long pr og ram char requires 39 credit hours for graduation; 3) a 66-credir-hour progr am, includin g 6 hours of summer internship, is a l so available for students who hold a pre pr ofessional ( non-accredited design ) degree; 4) for s tudents from all och er undergraduate d egree programs , a customize d thr ee-year curr iculum of96 credit hours is required including an internship component of 6 credit hours during one s ummer. In all cases fall semester is the preferred entry rime . The emphases of the urban design degree focuses on three primary concerns that affect both horizontal and vertical developm e nts in t ac tical and strategic rimeframes: I. hi s tory and theory of urbanization in th e inclusive public domain II. system s and proc esses used in the making of th e urbanized public domain III. designing th e urb an public domain The ultimate goal of the program is to e ducate s tudents to be e ffect ive in t h e public domain as pr ob l em originators, venture designer s, id ea link e rs, and decision makers. These urban de s ign d egree graduates through c reative problem solving, management , advocacy, and implementation can achieve ours tanding ends in th e professional, public , and development proc ess.
