Your Right to Know

You Have a Right to Know

As a prospective or continuing student at the University of Colorado Boulder, 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 CU-Boulder.

Current federal regulations require that institutions of higher education disclose such information and make it readily available to current and prospective students. A new provision in the Higher Education Amendments of 1998 requires institutions to provide a list of the information to which students are entitled with instructions on how they may obtain it.

www.colorado.edu/catalog
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, or other university catalogs such as continuing education and law.
