You Have a Right to Know

As a prospective or continuing student at the 鶹Ѱ, you have a right to certain information that the university is required by law to provide. Much of that information is safety related or financial in nature, but other broad categories are included such as graduation rates, athletics, and the various costs associated with attending 鶹ѰBoulder.

Current federal regulations require that institutions of higher education disclose such information and make it readily available to current and prospective students. The Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008 requires institutions to provide a list of the information to which students are entitled with instructions on who to contact to obtain more information.

Additionally, each fall the campus sends communications during Compliance Week to meet federal notification requirements. Students receive eMemos with annual reminders on topics concerning voting, alcohol and drugs, financial aid and the campus's safety and security report.

The university's catalog site contains a summary of current campus offerings, policies and requirements; descriptions of colleges, schools and individual departments; and degree requirements, course descriptions and faculty listings. View the main catalog archive.
