Apply Now - International Students

International students seeking admission must meet the requirements of the program to which they are applying. Please verify the admission requirements for the program for which you are applying. Note that some programs require a Colorado teaching license or other documentation which may pose obstacles for international applicants. If you have a valid teacher license or the equivalent from your home country, please contact the Colorado Department of Education at 303-866-6628 or to inquire about transferring an out-of-country license to Colorado. Please contact International Admissions at for more information.

Required courses for different degree programs may be offered on-campus, online, or as hybrid courses at the determination of the program faculty, are subject to change, and cannot be predicted before the course schedule is made available to students. Hybrid classes are part online, part on-campus. Based on the Department of Homeland Security, Student & Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) definition of “online courses,” CU Denver and the United States government do not consider hybrid courses to be online courses. However, many sponsors do consider hybrid courses to be online courses. Please contact International Admissions for additional information about sponsored students.

All international students must meet the university’s English language proficiency requirement. The application fee for International Students is $75.

Please visit our International Students webpage for additional details about international student admissions, sponsored student issues, immigration requirements, the ESL (English as a Second Language) Academy, and the Office of International Admissions mailing addresses.
