Degrees and majors are approved through the Colorado Commission on Higher Education (CCHE). If the emphasis area was not submitted to CCHE as a part of the major, it cannot be recorded on the diploma. All credits acquired during a degree are incorporated in that degree and may not be used to satisfy a future degree. Finally, at any given time, student may not work on both an undergraduate and graduate degree program simultaneously unless prior approval is obtained from the Graduate School and the Registrar's Office. Questions related to the double major and concurrent degrees should be directed to the Registrar's Office.
