For automatic admission to the architecture major, students must have a 2.75 cumulative GPA for all coursework attempted. Students with at least a 2.3 cumulative GPA may be considered on an individual basis if the academic record shows a consistent record of improvement and/or strong performance in science, mathematics, art, or architecture-oriented courses. Students with a 2.0 to 2.29 cumulative GPA may be considered for admission as Pre-Architecture majors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. If not initially admitted to the architecture program, students can be reconsidered through an internal CU Denver process upon meeting the criteria outline above.1
A minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA is required. Please note that there are additional requirements for the Film & Television Department and for audition-track applicants to the Music & Entertainment Industry (MEIS) Studies Department. Applicants must complete the additional requirements in addition to being admitted to CU Denver. Applicants can find complete information for applying to these programs on the College of Arts & Media Admissions website.

For admission to the Business School, a transfer applicant must have a minimum cumulative 3.0 GPA. Applicants with less than a cumulative 3.0 GPA may be admitted if the GPA is a 3.0 or higher in the most recent 24 credits. Note: Students who have completed an undergraduate degree in business will not be accepted for second undergraduate degree-seeking status in the Business School, as it is encouraged to pursue a graduate degree in business.2
In an effort to identify and admit students who demonstrate sufficient promise to be successful in their pursuit of an engineering degree, the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences has identified two pathways for admission to the college. Transfer applicants who show sufficient promise to be admitted directly into CEAS may be considered for full admission.
PATHWAY #1: Cumulative transfer GPA > 3.0 and a grade of B- or better in each college-level Calculus or Physics class taken
PATHWAY #2: Cumulative transfer GPA > 2.75 and a combined GPA in Calculus I, Calculus II, and Calculus-based Physics > 2.5
Applicants not meeting these requirements for direct admission to engineering programs will be automatically considered for admission as pre-engineering majors in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. Students who are admitted to Pre-Engineering must apply to transfer to the College of Engineering and Applied Science within three (3) semesters.
NOTE: There is no direct admission to the Bioengineering major; applicants apply and are considered for admission to the Bioengineering pre-major. Pre-majors may apply for the major after successfully completing a series of premajor requirements.
A minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA is required.5
A minimum 2.3 cumulative GPA is required for direct admission to the Education and Human Development degree program. Students with a cumulative GPA between 2.0 and 2.29 are considered for admission on a case-by-case basis. Note: Students who have a previous Undergraduate or Graduate degree are not eligible for the School of Education & Human Development Undergraduate Program. Students in this category are encouraged to contact the School of Education & Human Development for licensure, endorsement, Master’s degrees, and educator opportunities at email@example.com
