New Students

 New Student Orientation

First Year Student Orientation sessions are held each semester. Detailed information about orientation is mailed to new students.

Please visit the orientation website, for more information and specific dates.

New Student Advising

All new students are required to meet with an advisor before registering. Please contact the appropriate advising office to make an appointment. Find your advisor if you have a declared major.

Transfer students should make an advising appointment as soon as possible after being admitted. Your advisor will review your transfer credits, discuss CU Denver degree requirements and help you choose classes for your first semester.

New Freshmen must meet with their advisor before registration. Some advising offices require students to attend orientation before registering. Please contact your advising office to determine what your next steps should be. All new freshmen are required to attend orientation.

New students assigned to the Academic Success & Advising Center should call (303) 315-1940 to set up an appointment with an advisor. Please note your initial appointment will be one hour and parents are welcome to this first appointment.  Although ASAC advisors have walk-in hours, scheduled appointments are strongly encouraged in order to ensure that you get the individual time that you need.

When to meet with your advisor

It is essential that you meet with your advisor:

  • Before your first semester at CU Denver
  • Each semester before you register
  • Any time you are having trouble in classes
  • If you have a question about the university
  • When you decide to declare a major
  • Any other time that you think we can help you

If you have a problem, either academic or non-school related, please don't hesitate to contact your advisor. Don't assume that nothing can be done. If your advisor can't help you he or she will refer you to an appropriate office.

    All students who wish to take Math 1401 must take a Math prerequisite exam through the Math Department's MERC Lab, located in North Classroom 4015. Call (303) 556-8532 for testing information and lab schedule.
