Welcome to CU Denver! 
If you are a newly admitted first-year (freshman) student for summer or fall 2021, you are in the right place. All incoming CLAS first-year students are required to complete an initial advising appointment with their assigned CLAS Advisor.


Initial Advising for New Transfer Students

For incoming CLAS transfer students, the first academic advising requirement is to attend a Transfer Advising / Orienation Day where students will receive a transfer credit evaluation, will be provided with information on degree requirements, will have their initial college advising holds removed and will be able to speak with a CLAS Advisor about course registration and other advising related questions. Completion of this process will also result in being assigned to a CLAS Advisor.


Advising for Prospective Students
The College of LIberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) utilizes a shared adivising system in which all undergraduate students have a CLAS Academic Advisor and a CLAS Major Advisor.  CLAS Academic Advisors work with students regarding the CU Denver Core Curriculum, CLAS and general graduation requirements. CLAS Major Advisors are typically faculty members who work with students on their major requirements within their academic programs.


Interested in exploring a program before applying for formal admission? Do you need pre-requisites for a health career program at CU Denver Anschutz?

If so, non-degree admission may be a good option for you.
