Welcome to CU Denver! 
If you are a newly admitted first-year (freshman) student, you are in the right place. All incoming first-year students are required to attend a New Student Orientation. Spring 2019 admits will need to complete the online NSO for their orienatation requirement and attend an Advising 1001 session for their initial advising requirement.


Initial Advising for New Transfer Students

For incoming CLAS transfer students, the first academic advising requirement is to attend a Transfer Advising Group Session (TAGS). At TAGS, 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 CLAS Advising office is available to assist any ​undergraduate student who is interested in applying to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) at CU Denver. Prospective students are welcome to schedule an appointment with a CLAS advisor by calling 303-315-7100. 
  • CU Denver utilizes the Transferology tool. This free tool is available to current and prospective students and provides self-service to view likely transfer coursework to and from a variety of institutions. Visit to set up a profile and plug in courses to view equivalencies.
