All pre-engineering students are required to meet with an advisor in the Academic Success and Advising Center (ASAC) each semester before they can register for classes. Please call 303-315-1940 to schedule an appointment.
Students that are making efficient progress toward fulfilling the college admission requirements only need to meet with an ASAC advisor. ASAC advisors will make the necesssary referrals to College of Engineering faculty advisors once the minimum transfer requirements are successfully completed.1
Students admitted to the College of Engineering and Applied Science who have not declared a major are required to meet with an advisor in the Engineering Student Services Center. Please call 303-315-7510 or e-mail CEASstudentservices@ucdenver.edu to schedule an appointment.2
Students admitted to the college who have declared a major are required to meet with an advisor in their specific department and should contact that department directly to schedule an appointment.

Transfer students should make an advising appointment as soon as possible after being admitted.
Please be prepared for the transfer advising process to take some time and effort on your part. For transfer advising related to the CU Denver general education core requirements, including math and science courses, contact the Engineering Student Services Center (North Classroom 2605) at 303-315-7510 or CEASstudentservices@ucdenver.edu.
For transfer advising specifically related to engineering courses, students must make an appointment with a departmental advisor.
To schedule an appointment:
To expedite the advising process, please bring a copy of your transcripts from all institutions you have attended, copies of course descriptions for any courses you wish to have considered for transfer and if possible, a syllabus for each of those courses. Only courses with a grade of C- or better will be considered for transfer credit. Pass/fail courses, internship courses, research-related courses and special topics courses will not be considered for transfer credit. Check out the engineering Transfer Advising Plan for information about transferring specific community college courses.5
All graduate students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science should meet with their departmental faculty advisor(s) as soon possible after admission. Graduate faculty advisors will assist you in understanding course requirements and can also assist in understanding the research requirements within a chosen department.
It is solely the responsibility of all graduate students in the college to meet with a faculty advisor in a timely manner in order to receive proper advising. Failure to do so may result in a student’s inability to satisfactorily progress toward degree completion.
Any newly admitted graduate students in the College of Engineering and Applied Science who wish to receive transfer credit for course work taken at another institution MUST meet with a faculty advisor in their department as soon as possible for consideration.
To receive credit, all course work must be completed with a grade equivalent of a “B” or better and be of graduate level quality. A maximum of 9 credit hours of courses taken at another institution can be considered for transfer at the graduate level in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at CU Denver. When meeting with a faculty advisor for consideration of the transferability of course work, students should have a copy of their transcripts and the course descriptions of any courses they wish to have evaluated. Failure to provide course descriptions may result in the denial of the transfer of credit.
Please note that a course’s name is not adequate in determining if a course is eligible for transfer and application to a student’s degree. All consideration of transfer credit is based solely on the discretion of the student’s department.
