Academic Dishonesty

The College of Business follows and enforces the student conduct rules and policies that are set forth by the university and are listed in the Student Rights and Responsibilities section of the Academic Catalog.

Students caught engaging in academic dishonesty may receive a zero on the assignment in question, an "F" in the class, or be suspended from the College of Business and/or university. 


Attendance Policy

It is the expectation of the College of Business that students will attend all classes. However, specific classroom attendance policies are left to the discretion of the instructors. Students are responsible for knowing the attendance policies of their individual instructors. Business instructors may drop students who do not attend the first class of the semester. This policy allows waitlisted students who do attend the first class to be added to the class. Students registering for classes after the first class must obtain approval from the instructor prior to enrolling in the class.


Catalog

The catalog is a place where students can access all UCCS policies, degree requirements as well as course descriptions. The catalog is a book of everything students need to know about UCCS. For policies specific to the College of Business please view the catalog website.

All students also have access to their "degree audit" which provides feedback about which courses have been completed, are in progress, or need to be completed. A great tool to keep students on track to graduate.
