We get it.

No two students think alike.

That's why we have all kinds of specialized programs and services for everyone from freshmen going to college on their first day to seniors finishing their last.


First-Year Seminar

Our First-Year Seminar (FYS) program ensures a successful transition from high school to college. Seminar classes help you become engaged in the CU Denver community and get to know your peers and professors. You’ll develop study and time-management skills that will help you achieve academic success. Class size is limited to 24 students for optimal interaction, and all FYS courses count as part of the required Core Curriculum. Learn more about FYS


Enrichment programs for freshmen

To help make your freshman year an outstanding one, we offer programs that include summer orientation, academic advising from professional staff, tutoring, career counseling and financial aid and scholarship assistance. We also offer a host of programs for undergraduates that promote academic excellence, research and creative activity and leadership education.

University Honors and Leadership Program

The interdisciplinary curriculum in UHL rewards intellectual curiosity, challenges you to expand your horizons and promotes lifelong learning. You’ll have opportunities to engage in research projects with professors, study abroad and participate in leadership-development activities with students from other universities.
