Registration Advance Payments
All new University of Colorado Denver students taking classes on the Denver Campus are required to make a registration advance payment of $200.00 before they may register for classes. A student who has not attended classes for three semesters is considered new. The ONLY two exceptions to this requirement are:
- if the Financial Aid Office has received a student's FAFSA data, or
- if the student has not been admitted to an academic program at CU Denver and is only taking Extended Studies courses.
If a student withdraws from all of their classes before the first day of class, the $200 registration advance payment will be refunded (after the census date). If a student withdraws from all of their classes on or after the first day of class, the $200 registration advance payment will be forfeited to the University. If a student does not withdraw from all of their classes, the $200 registration advance payment will be treated as a deposit toward the student's tuition and fees.
Course Drop Charges
If a student wishes to drop a course/section, they must do so before Tuesday of the second week of class to avoid a $100 per course/section drop charge. Beginning the second Tuesday of the semester until census date-a $100 drop charge will be assessed each time a student drops a course. If a student withdraws (therefore dropping all classes), a drop charge will be assessed for each course.
Registration Advance Payment Forfeiture and Course Drop Charges are petitionable only if they are the result of a normal processing delay by the University.
