Please Note: This UCCS Course Bulletin includes the pertinent information students need to take best advantage of their educational career while here. Students should read it thoroughly. UCCS students have the responsibility to understand the policies and meet the requirements stated herein.
The General Information section of the Bulletin explains important University policies regarding admission, registration, finances, curricular requirements, academic progress, records, and student behavior that apply to all University students. The Graduate School section explains those expectations that apply to all graduate students. Students in every college should read these sections for applicable information.
Undergraduate students need to meet both University/College general education course requirements and specific course requirements for their major.
The Individual College sections explain the requirements and expectations of each college, as well as the majors,minors, and other programs of study offered through those colleges. The curricular requirements are spelled out in detail, to help students plan their programs and graduate within a reasonable time period.
The Course Description section describes every specific course that is on record and may be offered through each of the colleges and schools; however, not every course is offered every semester. The UCCS Schedule of Courses, published in advance of each semester, details courses (and schedules) offered; courses in the Schedule can be cross-referenced to the Bulletin for further description of the course and explanation of any curricular prerequisites.
Students will also regularly receive a computerized degree audit that reviews which curricular requirements they have met and which they still need to complete for their degree.
Students should also refer to the UCCS Web site (www.uccs.edu) to access current information in further detail.
Advisors are available to all students in the Student Success Center, on the second floor of Main Hall. Students should also confer with the Chair of the Department in which they are majoring for further guidance regarding their educational program.
