Do I have to watch each class lecture live, at the same time it is taught in Denver?
No. You may watch the lectures live or later, on demand. Watching later gives you more control over the recording playback, such as pause and rewind. You should view the lectures within a few days of when each class was taught, though, because quizzes and homework assignments tied to the lectures are due approximately once each week.
How will I take my exams?
In most courses, the majority of your grade is based on a single exam at the end of the quarter, which is usually about three hours in length. You will arrange for a proctor in your local community to administer your test on the same day the exam is scheduled in Denver, and the proctor will return it to us by FedEx to be graded. Possible sources for proctors include the testing center at a local university, a public or university library, or a commercial educational company such as Kaplan or Sylvan. Your proctor arrangements must be approved in advance, and you are responsible for any fees.
How do I buy my books?
Many instructors write their own course materials, and therefore they are available only from the Graduate Tax Program office. A few commercially published textbooks are used, and every student must have a copy of the Internal Revenue Code and Treasury regulations. We will ship books and course materials to you shortly before the start of the quarter. You may pay for the materials, plus shipping by UPS ground service, by check or credit card.
What courses are offered online?
All required courses and many elective courses are available online, in the same quarter as they are taught live in Denver (see the Annual Course Schedule). For online offerings in a specific quarter, see the Quarterly Class Schedules.
