Frequently Asked Questions

We have compiled common questions about the CoSIBS program.  If you have other questions or need further information, then please email us​.

What happens after I have accepted admission into the 2020 CoSIBS program?

  • Ms. Melissa Koons will work with you to arrange your travel and registration for the CoSIBS courses. Specifically:
  • Travel:  The program will cover the cost of your round-trip costs in traveling to and from Denver. You will arrive on the  Sunday before the program begins and depart on the Saturday after it ends.
  • Registration:  Ms. Koons will work with you to register as a non-degree-seeking student at the University of Colorado Denver. You will register for two courses in the theory and methods of biostatistics. These courses are each worth 3 semester hours of credit at UC Denver. The CoSIBS program will pay your tuition for these courses.   

 What is the housing like?

  • You will be housed in the Campus Village at the University of Colorado Denver. 
  • Students will be housed in groups of four per room. The rooms have two 2-person bedrooms a common shared area, and bathroom. Floor plans can be found on the Campus Village website
  • Each bedroom is fully furnished with two extra long twin size beds, dressers, desks, chairs, and a spacious closet, one for each resident. This floor plan also features a kitchenette with a full-size refrigerator, sink and microwave.  Living room furniture is also included. 

Are meals included?

  • Yes, a food stipend is provided for each student to cover the cost of meals. Students will receive $1,200 and a $100 meal card for the cafeteria at Children’s Hospital Colorado. In addition 4-5 meals are typically provided for special events.

 Do I have to stay at the University of Colorado Denver?
  • Yes, the extra activities and shared experience are an important part of the SIBS programs, so it cannot be a commuting program.
 Can I drive a car to Denver?
  • Yes, and there is some parking available at Campus Village. If you are planning to drive to Denver, then we will get that information when we arrange travel.
