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 or emailing
Before calling to set up an appointment with an advisor, please note the following:
  • Peak advising times for current students occur during the weeks leading up to the start of each semester, the first two weeks of a semester as well as during initial course registration periods. We will do our best to accommodate requests for prospective student appointments during these times, but it's possible that availabilty may be limited.
  • If you have specific questions about how transfer credits would apply to a CLAS degree, make sure to email copies of your transcripts from any higher education institution that you have previously attended. Ideally, please email copies of those transcripts to the day before your appointment so that the advisor you meet with has time to review and prepare accordingly.
  • 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 free profile and plug in courses to view equivalencies.
