Welcome to CU Denver! 
If you are a newly admitted first-year (freshman) student for spring 2020, you are in the right place. All incoming CLAS first-year students for spring 2020 are required to complete an online New Student Orientation (NSO) as well as an Advising 1001 session (in-person and online available) with CLAS Advising.


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
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 stuents regarding the CU Denver Core Curriculum, CLAS, and general graduation requirements. CLAS Major Advisors are typically faculty members who work with students on thei major requirements within their academic programs.
