CU Denver Learning Resource Center is holding a 3-day course in early August intended for students who are currently on academic probation and/or are in jeopardy of being restricted to 6 hours of coursework at CU Denver. The course, once completed, will earn students the option to enroll in 12 credit hours (full time) at CU Denver in the FALL 2015 semester.

For more information, please contact the OVSS at

SUMMER STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE - Enrollment now open! Sign up by Jun 16, 2015 to prevent delays in tuition and fees payments.


The VA Refund Hold is placed to prevent refunds that create student VA debts in the case that the VA overpays. The hold will remain on your account until the VA payment is posted to your account and the payment has been verified as correct. If you are expecting a refund, please contact us AFTER the VA payment has been posted to your student account so we can verify the payment and you can be refunded.
