Transfer Planning


So you’ve done your research and decided that CU Denver may be the place for you and you’re ready to learn how your credits might apply here. Great! Did you know that as a prospective student (meaning you haven’t applied to CU Denver, yet) you're able to schedule a meeting with an academic advisor? While pre-transfer advising is not mandatory, it is an option for you. Transfer Thursday is another great way to connect with us on campus and get answers to all of your questions. While you're here, meet with an Admissions Counselor, take a guided campus tour or schedule a personalized department visit.

Academic advising

At CU Denver, we have eight (8) undergraduate advising units who serve our students’ (both current and prospective) advising needs. While some advising offices allow drop-ins others may not —in which case a scheduled appointment is required. As such, an appointment is always strongly recommended.

Schedule your advising appointment early. Advisors’ calendars tend to book quickly, especially during peak registration times.

If you live outside the Denver-metro area, you can inquire with your advising office about possible options for distance advising (phone, e-mail or video). To find the appropriate advising office for you, click here: Find My Advisor.

Paying for college

Whether you need support in applying for financial aid or searching for scholarships, the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office is here to help. Not sure where to start in the process? Check out our transfer student webpage and start planning early to get the best aid available.

Transferring credit


For an unofficial evaluation of your transfer credit, please bring unofficial transcripts (one copy from each school you attended after high school/GRE) to your pre-transfer advising session.

For an official review of your transfer coursework, you will need to apply to CU Denver and be admitted.
