The College of Business highly recommends business students pursue an internship in their chosen field. Student interns typically begin their junior year, and can receive credit while working in small, medium, and large organizations in all industries of public, non-profit, and government. Internships provide tremendous academic and professional development opportunities, with over 95 percent of employers considering the experience as a major factor in their hiring decisions.
For internship opportunities contact Lisanne McNew at email@example.com.
Students can drop a course online using the student portal up until the final withdrawal date of any given semester or up the final withdrawal date of a specific course (courses that are interim or short courses have different dates based on how many days the course meets).
After, the final withdrawal date, the dean's signature is required to drop a course. The dean will only sign withdrawals if a student has documentable, extenuating circumstances beyond his/her control. Please see your business advisor for specific information if you are trying to drop a class after the final withdrawal date.
You are earning a Bachelor of Science in Business degree. This is what will be printed on your diploma.
In most cases the lowest grade that counts towards the Bachelor of Science in Business degree requirements is a C-. All Skills Courses, Junior Core Courses, Emphasis Courses and Senior Capstone Courses require a C- grade in order for the course to count towards the degree.
The Senior Audit is your last check out before you graduate. It is an appointment to make sure that you have and will complete all the necessary degree requirements to earn your Bachelor of Science in Business degree.
Senior audits should be scheduled the semester before you intend to graduate. If you will be out on internship during your last semester(s), then your senior audit should be completed the last semester that you will be "on-campus." You can schedule your Senior Audit by calling 719-255-3260 and scheduling a Senior Audit appointment with your academic advisor.
All UCCS students must complete a three-part English writing requirement before graduating. This requirement can be fulfilled in two ways: 1. Students complete three writing courses (one being an upper division writing course) or 2. Students complete two writing courses and pass a Writing Competency Portfolio (submitted to the Writing Program for review). Students who do not pass the Writing Competency Portfolio are required to complete an additional 3000+ level writing course before they can graduate.
Business students complete ENGL 1310, ENGL 2080 and the Writing Competency Portfolio or an additional upper division writing course. This is a junior year requirement and must be completed in the junior year to ensure graduating on schedule. Specific questions should be addressed to the English Department at (719) 255-4018.
