The University of Colorado system uses two versions of its seal: the official seal (with our official creed displayed in Greek) and the commercial seal (with our creed displayed in English). Use of both is limited, and subject to the approval processes
The official seal is reserved for diplomas, official transcripts, records and admissions documents; written agreements and contracts; and certification of Board of Regents actions.
It is also used on the president’s chain of office, the university mace, commencement programs, regent regalia, and Board of Regents publications and associated collateral.
Use of the official seal for purposes other than those described above is expressly prohibited, and requires formal approval from the secretary of the Board of Regents.
The commercial seal has limited application and is used primarily for approved signage and podiums, as well as select promotional items and laboratory coats for CU physicians and researchers.
It may not be substituted for approved university logos on official stationery, marketing collateral, advertising, web pages, electronic applications, general signage, vehicles or apparel.
All other uses of the commercial university seal must receive advance approval from the campus brand manager.
