2016-2017 Undergraduate Bulletin

Graduation Policies

Application for Graduation 

An applicant for any undergraduate degree must file an application for graduation at least three quarters before the intended quarter of grad­uation. The final responsibility for complet­ing graduation requirements rests with the student.

Requirements for Graduation 

  • A student must complete the degree requirements listed in the bulletin in effect at the time he or she is admitted as degree-seeking student at the University.
  • Students must earn a minimum GPA of 2.0 with the exception of the bachelor of science in accounting which requires a minimum GPA of 2.5.
  •  Any departure from degree requirements must be approved by the Academic Exceptions Committee.
  • Any non-final grade (i.e., incomplete or non-reported grade) must be changed to a final grade.

Residence Requirement

  • The last 45 credits earned prior to granting a degree must be completed at the University of Denver apart from approved study abroad participation.
  • Students who take classes at another institution while on leave must submit transcripts upon their return to the University.
  • Regardless of the degree requirements (coursework and credits) satisfied by the transfer work, the 45-­quarter-­hour resi­dency requirement must also be satisfied.

Class Attendance

A graduating senior must attend classes through the last scheduled session of the quarter unless the instructors approve the absence.
