Welcome to CU Denver! 
If you are a newly admitted first-year (freshman) student for Summer or Fall 2019, you are in the right place. All incoming first-year students are required to attend a New Student Orientation (NSO). Please contact the New Student Orientation Office at (303) 315-3503 for assistance getting signed up for a NSO. 


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.
