Transfer Student Admissions

At CU Denver we want your transfer to be smooth and successful

You've taken some courses, or perhaps you've even completed your core curricula. Or maybe you're ready to attend a university that will help you get into the real world with industry-leading internships in the heart of downtown Denver, while offering a unique urban lifestyle out your front door and the Rocky Mountains as your backyard playground.

Whatever your case, here at CU Denver we understand your situation. Every fall, at least half of our new undergraduate students transfer from several Colorado colleges and universities, as well as other universities across the U.S. and the world. We understand you're ready to get serious, and we want you to have a smooth and successful transfer. That's why this site is for you - the transfer student. This site is packed with information you need to know about how to apply, what it takes to gain admission and what you need to take care of once you're accepted, along with tons of links to other great spots - like financial aid, scholarships and academics.

Health program students

CU Denver boasts a very diverse student body population. With students from over 80 countries across the globe, our campus's rich multicultural tapestry is open, safe and welcoming to all students who wish to "Learn with Purpose."
