After activating your IdentiKey, you will need to set-up your CU Boulder email account which is @colorado.edu. All official forms of communication will be sent to @colorado.edu email address.
On the Coursera platform, complete the "MS-EE Student Onboarding Course" in order to gain access to the for-credit content. Please keep the following in mind:
- If you have completed the onboarding course and still do not have access to the for-credit content, the class may not have started yet. See class start and end date.
- Schedule your proctored exam at least 72 hours prior to the class end date
- Final grade will be posted 2 weeks after the end of the 8-week session
The MS-EE on Coursera program is unique among graduate programs at the University of Colorado Boulder in its modality, admissions policies, course design, and has a number of special policies. These policies are listed in the student handbook.
The Buff Portal is known as the student portal that will serve as a one-stop-shop for students to find the important resources such as managing transactions, viewing class schedule, checking current status, and much more.
Upon first logging into Buff Portal, students must consent to conduct business electronically during their time at CU Boulder.
Drop and Refund: Each student may drop a class if they are within 14 days from the class start date or their enrollment date (whichever is later) and have not accessed the proctored assessment. When a course is dropped under the conditions listed above, it will not appear on the student’s record.
Withdrawal: Students who request to drop the course after the 14-day period and have not accessed the proctored assessment may withdraw from the course but will not receive a refund. When a student withdraws from a course under these conditions, the student will receive a grade of W on their academic record. W grades have no bearing on the GPA and credit total.
Obtain a copy of your tuition statement and 1098T Tax Form.
The Office of the Registrar can provide confirmation of enrollment or degree status for current or former students.
To get started, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before ordering the official CU Boulder transcript, students must check for holds by logging into the Buff Portal. If there are financial obligations with CU, the student transcript will not be released.
Note: Click on the "Students with an IdentiKey" button to get started.
CU Boulder is proud to offer the certified electronic diploma (CeDiploma). Students who complete an official certificate program also have the option of downloading a certified electronic certificate (CeCertificate). For more information, visit the Certified Electronic Doplomas & Certificates website.
Note: CU Boulder issues both diplomas and graduate certificates 3x a year - July, October and February.
This policy only applies to admitted students (successfully completed a pathway specialization) on the MS-EE degree program. Admitted students can replace up to six credits in the cumulative GPA calculation. In this process, all courses attempted will still appear on the transcript, but only the last attempt will be calculated in the cumulative GPA and credit totals.
To get started, visit the Retake a Course for Grade Replacement website.
The Professional Conversations Seminar series provides an opportunity for MS-EE students to hear directly from industry leaders to discuss about their profession, how their role plays in their organization, the methods and techniques being used, and their own career trajectory.
- Declare your intention to seek the degree, which you can do before, during, or after any work in a pathway specialization;
- Complete at least one Pathway Specialization for-credit with a cumulative grade-point average (GPA) of at least 3.00;
- Complete a minimum of 30 for-credit hours which includes a pathway specialization with cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 for all for-credit courses taken to date.
- At the start of your final, 8-week session, send an email to email@example.com for details about participation in the next graduation ceremony.
- Attend the graduation ceremony (optional).
You will receive a congratulatory email about three weeks after your final 8-week session concludes.
You will receive your diploma around two months after you complete your course work.
Note: Diplomas and Certificates will be mailed out to students – we do not print or ship diplomas in house. Diploma covers are not included in the mailing. Currently, students receive both a paper and electronic copy.
