Mines Reciprocal Agreement

Students taking class/es here at Mines as part of the Reciprocal Agreement:

Undergraduate Students: Undergraduate students from Red Rocks Community College can take EPIC-151 here at Mines as part of the reciprocal agreement. These students are registered by working with their home university or college, who will contact the Registrar's Office at Mines to ensure the student is registered in his or her course/s. Students must be enrolled full-time at their home institution.

Graduate Students:

Two reciprocal programs are available to graduate students:

  • Students from CU-Boulder, CU-Denver, CU-Colorado Springs, Colorado State University (CSU), and the University Of Northern Colorado (UNC) are eligible to take courses at Mines under the Exchange Agreement between the State Supported Institutions in Northern Colorado. The program is available only during Spring and Fall semesters.
  • Students from the University of Denver College Of Law are eligible to take courses at Mines under a collaborative agreement between the two institutions.

Under both programs, the Registrar at the home institution must attest to the student’s full-time status before the Mines course registration can be processed for the student. The student must initiate the registration process by contacting the Registrar’s Office at the home institution.

Mines students taking class at another college as part of the Reciprocal Agreement:

Undergraduate Students: Mines undergraduate students can take a Studio Arts Class at Red Rocks Community College without incurring additional tuition and fees during the fall and spring semesters, and use the class as a free elective.  The Studio Arts Class must be part of the list of eligible classes per Red Rocks. Contact Susan Kumpf in the Registrar’s Office at Red Rocks with any questions regarding eligible courses. Mines students need to be enrolled at Mines as full time for tuition purposes (15.0 credit hours) not including the credit hours of the class they want to take at Red Rocks.
 
Students register for RRCC Studio Arts classes by completing the form available at the Mines Registrar's Office. The Registration Specialist will confirm if the requirements are met, and register the student with RRCC and Mines. The student will be responsible for RRCC fees associated with the class and for working with both RRCC and Mines Registrar's Offices when dropping a course. Students must follow RRCC's deadlines for registering and withdrawing from courses.
 
The RRCC Studio Arts courses will show on your registration as CSM-999-R1 or R2, and the grade for the course will calculate into your GPA. This is the only time a course completed at another institution calculates into your GPA.
 
Studio Arts courses will be "hands-on" courses that Mines does not offer, such as jewelry making, ceramics, photography, etc. Information about Studio Arts classes can be obtained from the Red Rocks website at http://www.rrcc.edu/. The RRCC course catalog has a section for Studio Arts courses, but not all courses are included in the agreement. If you are unsure about a course being considered as a "hands-on" course, you can ask the RRCC Registrar's Office or submit the paperwork to our office and wait for the paperwork to be processed.
