What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
Most of the class rooms are no more than 30 people. So you get more time to ask your teachers for help. Also you can go in for help and they are more than willing to help you.

Being a Denver Bound student I have to upkeep a 3.5 GPA to keep my scholarship money. Although getting a 3.5 in high school was not difficult at all, knowing that now I'm in college keeping that high of a GPA is going to be difficult so I know when it comes to being a scholarship student I will have a pretty rigorous 4 years!

This campus has 3 colleges on it and some times the courses you can take here, are taught by a professor from another College and they are usually very nice in their course work and grading. But when you have a UCD professor, they will drill you and make sure that while you are learning the material, you are also performing on a more advanced level. As you advance from freshmen to sophomore and so on, it will become more difficult. By the time you reach your Junior and Senior year you are expected to remember the information from the pre-requisite courses.

This depends on what field of study you're considering. As a pre-med student, the demands are high but unlike other university's the class schedules, exams and lectures don't take up as much time. I went to CSU my freshman year and I found that taking chemistry there was much more time consuming and harder to grasp but then after I transferred, the chemistry department was more available to help a student and didn't schedule exams outside of lecture at 7pm on a Thursday (which I found to be very inconvenient at CSU)
