Requirements for Admission

Admission into the MIS program is competitively based.  Minimum requirements for an application to be considered are:

  • the graduate application form for the University of Colorado Denver, including all application fees
  • a statement of purpose specifying why the applicant wishes to be admitted to the program, the applicant's primary area of interest, and his or her career goals
  • three (3) letters of recommendation from individuals who can speak to the applicant's academic qualifications, of which at least two (2) should be from academic sources
  • transcripts from all institutions of higher learning attended by the applicant
  • a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university
  • a minimum cumulative undergraduate GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale; however, applicants with an undergraduate GPA below 3.0 may be considered if they have taken Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and if the scores are forwarded to the program office
  • 40 semester hours of undergraduate courses in biology, chemistry, computer science, environmental sciences, geology, mathematics, and/or physics
Possessing the minimum requirements will guarantee that the application is considered.  It does not, however, guarantee admission.  The admissions committee will select students competitively to create a high-quality and balanced cohort of participants entering the program each year.

Application Deadline

Students are admitted for the fall and spring semesters. The deadline for a complete application for fall admission is April 15; for spring admission it is October 15.  All supporting documents or questions related to your application should be directed to the following:
