New First-Year/Freshmen Students

Welcome to CU Denver!  
If you are a newly admitted first-year Freshman student for the Spring 2018 semester, you are in the right place.  All incoming first-year students are required to attend a New Student Orientation. Please read and follow the steps below for your initial advising requirements. We look forward to meeting with you soon!

  • Attend or complete a New Student Orientation.  Please contact the Lynx Center at (303) 315-3503 to find out more details about New Student Orientation dates.

  • In order to ensure you’re best prepared to meet with CLAS Advising in the afternoon breakout session at orientation, please first complete the Pre-Advising Module accessed via the link below. Doing this work beforehand will make your initial registration process go more smoothly and quickly and will prompt our team to review any AP, IB or previous college course work.

Instructions For Accessing Pre-Advising Module

  1. Before you begin, please download the corresponding handouts packet here​​.  These handouts will be reviewed and explained in the module.
