Pooled Classes Restrictions

It is the student’s responsibility to check with their academic advisor and/or the Dean to check degree plan applicability prior to enrolling in an MSU Denver pooled class, and/or prior to enrolling at MSU Denver as a non-degree seeking student wishing to transfer course credits back to CU Denver. MSU Denver pooled classes cannot be used to meet specific course requirements toward the major without prior approval.

MSU Denver pooled classes will not satisfy certain degree requirements, such as the number of credit hours taken at CU Denver. This is also known as a residency requirement, but don't confuse it with the residency tuition classification which is something entirely different. See the University Catalog for details about MSU Denver pooled classes, CU Denver degree requirements, and credit hours.

A limited number of openings will be reserved in each MSU Denver class for CU Denver students.

CU Denver students who wish to take non-pooled MSU Denver classes must apply directly as a non-degree student to MSU Denver, enroll through MSU Denver, and pay tuition and fees to MSU Denver. Non-pooled classes will not appear on the University of Colorado transcript and will not be used in determining course loads for financial aid eligibility. Students may then request an MSU Denver transcript to be sent to CU Denver at the end of the semester to determine if credit can be transferred.

View the Pooled Class Exclusions.
