Master’s Program Admissions

Advance your career to the next level

CU Denver awards more graduate degrees every year than any other public institution in Colorado. With a wide range of master’s degrees available from our eight schools and colleges, we have the program that can help you advance your career goals.

Health sciences programs

CU Anschutz offers graduate level health programs. They can be found on the Professional Health Sciences Programs​ page.


The graduate admissions process for these programs is selective and personal—you apply directly to the department you are considering. The department will guide and assist you with understanding and completing the application requirements, and also notify you of your admission status.

Before applying for admission, be sure to contact your department for individual program application requirements and deadlines.

Though application requirements vary according to the program of study you have selected, all applicants must submit:

  1. An application for admission (parts I and II)
  2. A $50 non-refundable application fee
  3. Two official transcripts from each college or university you have attended (including foreign institutions)
  4. At least three letters of recommendation
  5. Standardized test scores and/or other supplemental information as requested by the department

Please note: Graduate applicants cannot track application status or receipt of credentials online. Please contact your department for information about your application status

After Admission

After your department has notified you of your acceptance for admission, you will receive an additional notice of acceptance from the CU Denver Office of Admissions.

Prior to the start of the class registration period, if you have been notified of your acceptance from the Office of Admissions, you will be prompted to activate a new portal account in the UCDAccess student portal. In UCDAccess, you can find your class registration time assignment, check your financial aid status, search for courses, pay the required enrollment deposit, register for classes, and more.
