Advising Centers at CU Denver


As a premier four-year public university, CU Denver utilizes both Decentralized and/or Shared advising structures to deliver timely, accurate and relevant advising to its undergraduate students.  At CU Denver, several advising offices exist to serve the undergraduate population. Each unit, department and/or individual is responsible for delivering the mission, vision and values discussed on the Advising at CU Denver page of this site.​​


Center for Undergraduate Exploration and Advising (CUE & A)

CUE & A advises specific groups of students, such as first year College of Arts & Media students, students still deciding on a major, students preparing to transition into academic programs within the Schools/Colleges, and non-degree undergraduate students with no prior degree. Students are able to meet with any one of the CUE & A advisors.

College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

How Advising Works
Students receive all advising from entry to the university to graduation in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS). Academic advising in CLAS is a shared partnership between students, staff, and faculty. CLAS utilizes a dual-advising system which means all undergraduate students with a declared CLAS major will have at least two advisors to guide them through the completion of their degree: a CLAS Academic Advisor and a Faculty Advisor. CLAS Academic Advisors advise students on CU Core, CLAS, and general graduation requirements; registration procedures; and academic policies. Faculty advisors advise students on major/minor requirements. Students’ degree progress and graduation plans are monitored and approved by both advisors.

Students can identify their assigned CLAS Academic Advisor in the “Advisor” box in their Student Center on UCD Access. Faculty Advisor contact information for each academic program is available in the CLAS Advising Office and online.

 

Please note: students who are still deciding their college major (Liberal Arts-Undeclared), along with pre-architecture, pre-business, & pre-engineering students, are advised through the Center for Undergraduate Exploration and Advising (CUE & A).

 

Who Do We Advise?
CLAS Advisors advise the following populations of students:

  • All students with declared CLAS majors
  • Undergraduate Teacher Education majors
  • All students with declared pre-health tracks (e.g. pre-nursing, pre-med, etc.)
