University Honors and Leadership Program

Degree Progress

UHL students are able to satisfy most of their CU Denver core curriculum requirements through their UHL coursework.  Each student's path through the UHL program is a function of several factors, including the student's chosen "track" and the university-level coursework completed both at CU Denver and prior to enrollment at CU Denver (including AP courses).  To ensure that they are on track to satisfy the requirements of the UHL program and the CU Denver core, UHL students are required to meet with the UHL advisor at least once each semester.   Students should also meet regularly with their individual school/college and major program advisors to assure compliance with their major program of study requirements.

Maintaining “Good Standing” in the UHL Program

UHL students are required to maintain certain minimum academic standards (3.0 GPA in their UHL courses and a 3.25 cumulative GPA at CU Denver) as a condition of their continued participation in the UHL program and in order to graduate from CU Denver with the appropriate UHL designation.

Students who fail to meet these GPA requirements will be put on probation for one semester. If the student has not achieved good standing in the program at the end of the probationary semester, the student will remain on probation for a second semester and will lose the UHL scholarship for that semester. If, at the end of this second semester of probation, the student has not achieved good standing in the program, the student will not be allowed to continue in the UHL program.

Graduation Requirements

In order to graduate with the appropriate UHL designation (University Honors for Academic Honors track students or a minor in Leadership Studies for Leadership Studies track students), students are required to satisfy the course and credit hour requirements specified elsewhere on this website and must have a GPA of 3.50 or higher in their UHL courses.  No grade below B- (2.70) in a UHL course will count toward the UHL certification requirements.
