This course is an introduction to the field of Sustainable Design, Construction and Development for designers, builders and owners. It explores underlying issues as they impact the built environment, current green building practices, and emerging trends in the field. 

The class covers guidelines and rating systems including LEED; government initiatives, incentives, and impending code changes; the roles of the owner, project consultants, and building operators in a green building project; site selection, water, energy, and resource efficiency, commissioning, life cycle assessment, indoor environmental quality, and green building operations and management.

Refund Policy
Students MUST submit a detailed written request to withdraw from a course, which CourseHorse will then forward on to the school. The request must state the reason of cancellation.

Refunds or credits are available: Full refund or credit if request to withdraw is made 3 business days before the first class session. 50% refund or credit if request to withdraw is made before the second class session. After the second class session no refunds or credits will be granted.

No refunds or credits will be issued for classes that meet four sessions or fewer. Classes include seminars, intensives and workshops.

All refunds will have a $25 processing fee deducted from the course refund as well as a $20 registration fee ($45 total).

When Baruch College cancels a course, refunds are made automatically. If for any reason the department cancels a session, then a make-up session will be offered.


Students who wish to withdraw from a course must notify the CAPS Office in writing. Failure to complete a course, ceasing to attend class, notifying the instructor of your desire to withdraw, or general dissatisfaction with a course does not constitute a withdrawal and does not entitle you to a refund. Instructors are not permitted OR able to process withdrawals, transfers or refunds.


If a student misses a session, the department unfortunately does not authorize the student to make up that missed session in another section. If the instructor informs the student to visit another section of his class, then that is between the student and the instructor.

Hi Luis. A CUNY id will be required and can be obtained the day of class unless the class meets on the weekend, as they do not have weekend hours.
