Thank you for your interest in CU Denver's undergraduate education programs! You may complete your undergraduate degree, including those tracks that involve teacher licensure, within a 4-year graduation plan, but you'll need to declare your related major early in your college career and meet regularly with your advisor.
Teacher Education related programs* listed below include the Professional Year, a year-long residency in your final year of the undergraduate degree program, and require a separate application. You will apply for Professional Year admission a semester prior to your start of senior year and acceptance into the Professional Year is not guaranteed. For instructions and minimum requirements, please see the SEHD website. Once already admitted to CU Denver and have declared the appropriate related major, your advisor will work closely with you to help you prepare for the Professional year admission process based on your degree plan. We require all undergraduates to have a GPA of 2.75 or higher for admission into their Professional Year. (IMPORTANT NOTE: Candidates with a cumulative GPA of 2.75-2.99 will be considered for provisional admission based on the overall strength of other required admission criteria.)
We encourage students to schedule an individual meeting with the appropriate advisor as soon as possible.
