Application Requirements
Applicants must hold a Bachelor's degree from an accredited institution.


The University of Colorado Denver has a minimum requirement of 3.0 undergraduate grade point average (GPA) for applicants to the Graduate School. The number of applicants admitted to the MA in Applied Geography & Geospatial Science in any  year depends, in part, on space availability. The program is competitive, and we generally discourage applicants whose undergraduate GPA is below 3.0. Notification of acceptance or refusal for admission into the program is mailed to the applicant approximately six weeks after the deadline for submission of applications.

Application Process

We accept applications once per year, before or on March 1st, for admission in the following fall.

As part of the admission review process, applicants are required to submit:
  • a graduate application
  • statement of purpose that areticulates the goals of pursuing a graduate degree in this program
  • a minimum of three letters of recommendation (academic references are preferred)
  • official transcripts from all institutions previously attended
  • GRE scores will be required from: domestic students with an undergraduate GPA below 3.0 and all international students
All materials not serviced by online application portal are to be sent to the Graduate School, not the GES department.
