The main overarching student organization at the ColoradoSPH is the ColoradoSPH student council. Each home campus has their own representative student council. http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/PublicHealth/resourcesfor/currentstudents/academics/Pages/StudentOrganizations.aspx
There are many additional opportunities to get involved, including ColoradoSPH Rocky Mountain Public Health Case Competition, the Emerging Leaders Conference, Peer Mentoring, departmental and program-based affinity groups, research, etc.

We do have students who successfully work full time and maintain a full course load. Whether this works for you will depend on many factors, most of all your personal time management.
Some additional guidance to help you think this through: we consider full time to be 9 credits per fall and spring semester, and 3 credits per summer semester (this is a higher threshold than is used by financial aid for full-time). We recommend budgeting approximately 3 hours per week outside of class per credit hour. So, a student taking 9 credits of coursework should plan to spend 9 hours per week in class, and 27 hours per week outside of class. Ultimately, it’s up to you to determine whether this is feasible for you.
Students at the Anschutz Campus will receive RTD student passes as a part of your student fees.
Yes. If you find that you would like to transfer to a different MPH concentration, you will need to be admitted to that concentration. The process for this varies based on where you are in the pro
We can set you up for either summer or fall as your first term of enrollment. However, if you’ve told us that you would like to matriculate in fall, you won’t be able to register in Summer 2020. If you need to change your start term, please contact us at ColoradoSPH.Admissions@cuanschutz.edu 13

Our ColoradoSPH students have been engaged in significant volunteer efforts in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, including registration in a one-credit volunteer course. For liability reasons, you won’t be able to participate in ColoradoSPH student volunteer efforts until you have matriculated into the program. However, we are connected to some local organizations who are accepting non-student volunteers. For opportunities like these, please visit http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/PublicHealth/coronavirus/Pages/give-back.aspx
Dual concentrations are possible, though not common. Most of our programs have a balance of required concentration coursework. 16
Yes. We offer both in-person and online coursework each semester, and all students are welcome to enroll in in-person or online courses to meet their needs. Starting in fall semester with online coursework, and then transitioning to in-person coursework in spring might be a good option for an out-of-state student who is concerned about being able to move to Colorado in time for the start of fall semester. Please feel free to reach out to Chloe.Bennion@cuanschutz.edu

You are automatically considered for most scholarships that we offer when you submit your application. Detailed information about all scholarships can be found on our website. Scholarships are administered through our school, not the Office of Financial Aid. If you receive a scholarship, you will be notified by our school via email. Every department makes their own decisions regarding scholarships. Departments start to send out scholarship offers in February; offers may continue throughout the admissions cycle (through May). Scholarship amounts vary, but we usually see scholarships offered in amounts from $2,000 up to $10,000.
If you are interested in federal student aid, please complete the FAFSA. The FAFSA school code is 004508. Once you complete the FAFSA, you will be able to get an estimate of your student loan amounts through the Office of Financial Aid. Please not that you will need to accept your offer of admission (nonbinding) before you will receive information from the university about your financial aid package.
When you reach this point in your MPH program, you should discuss your specific case with the ColoradoSPH Practicum Coordinator, who can help you find options that will suit you. It can be done!
