What transfer students need to know about admission and costs



You are a transfer student if . . .

You completed any number of college credits after graduating from high school or earning a GED, or if you are enrolled in your first semester of college course work at the time you apply. While credit earned prior to high school graduation can be considered in transfer to CU Denver, only college or university credit hours taken after graduation from high school or earning a GED are considered in the transfer student admission requirements outlined below.

If you have questions, our Admissions Counselors are available by appointment or walk in Monday-Friday, 10-3. Call us at 303.315.2601 or email Admissions@ucdenver.edu to set an appointment.

It's also important to know about Residency Classification for Tuition Purposes

 

College Opportunity Fund (COF)
An act of the Colorado State Legislature in May 2004 established a new way for the State to provide state tax dollar support for higher education at the undergraduate level. The state is no longer appropriating monies to institutions for undergraduate education, but is providing direct funding to undergraduate students throughCOF.

Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE)
