Consumer Information – Your Right to Know
As a prospective or continuing student at Colorado School of Mines, you have a right to certain information that
the university is required by law to provide. Much of that information is safety related or financial in nature, but
other broad categories are included such as graduation rates, athletics, and the various costs associated with
attending Mines.
Current federal regulations require that institutions of higher education disclose such information and make it
readily available to current and prospective students. A new provision in the Higher Education Amendments of
1998 requires institutions to provide a list of the information to which students are entitled with instructions on
how they may obtain it. A paper copy of all of the information can be found in the Compliance and Policy Office in
Guggenheim Hall.
