Denver Program Course Schedule


 

Currently, all of the Center's courses are held at the University Center at Chaparral, which is located approximately 25 miles south of Denver in Douglas County.  For current and forthcoming semester course schedules, current and newly accepted students should be using the shopping cart inside the UCDAccess portal.  Fall Downtown Students –use the Fall Schedule of Courses to view what classes are offered for the Fall semester. Keep in mind this list is just a view and all courses are subject to change.

The scheduling matrix below is a tentative schedule for courses to be offered through the springof 2011.  The scheduling matrix should be considered tentative. A minimum of five supportive elective courses will always be scheduled within a two-year sequence of classes. The elective courses offered, however, may change from time to time based on needs, interests, and other factors. When possible, the actual courses for future semesters, along with dates, will be made known at least a semester in advance and will be included in the shopping cart feature of your UCDAccess portal. The semester the student enrolls in the Prerequisite course generally defines the cohort for that student, e.g., O, P, Q, etc.

There is no requirement that a student must take the courses in the order they are offered based on the cohort with which he/she started the program. The scheduling, however, is designed so as to enable the participant to complete his/her particular program, (i.e., masters, baccalaureate, certificate) within the time period promised by enrolling in an average of two courses each semester and by taking the prescribed courses for that student's cohort in the order they are offered.
