Records and Registration
CU Denver offers students a completely online system of planning their schedules and registering for classes. As a student, you are responsible for knowing the deadlines, rules, regulations, course loads, prerequisites and policies of the university, as well as those of the college or school in which you are enrolled, all of which is provided within this online catalog. Please refer to the Academic Policies section for more specific information related to records and registration.
Office of the Registrar
Registrar: Ingrid Eschholz
Office: CU Denver Building Annex, 100
Web site: www.ucdenver.edu/Registrar
Students should review the sections of this catalog that describe in detail the academic programs available at the Denver Campus.
New and transfer undeclared undergraduate students, as well as prebusiness and preengineering students, should contact the Academic Advising Center at 303-352-3520 to arrange for an advising appointment prior to registration. Other freshmen and transfer students should contact their school or college to arrange for an advising appointment prior to registration.
The registrar’s office will send an e-mail message to the student’s university-assigned e-mail address, inviting the student to register, including registration information and a registration time assignment. Registration is by time assignment only. Students may register via the web on or after their assigned time.
FERPA: FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT
FERPA is a federal privacy law that protects students’ educational records. Under this law, students have three primary rights:
- Inspect and review their education records.
- Seek to amend incorrect education records.
- Have some control over the disclosure of information from their education record.
FERPA generally requires the University to obtain your consent prior to disclosing your education records or personally identifiable information contained in your records. One exception, which permits disclosure without your consent, is information about you that the University has designated as “directory information.” The following items are designated “directory information” and may be released at the discretion of the University of Colorado:
- Name, address, telephone number, and email address
- Dates of attendance
- Registration status (full-time, part-time)
- Class status (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior)
- Awards, honors, and degrees conferred
Although the above items may be released by CU Denver, only a limited amount of this information is routinely disclosed by CU Denver officials. The University retains the discretion to refuse to disclose directory information if it believes such disclosure would be an infringement of your privacy rights.
If you would like to restrict the release of your information, you can submit a Request to Prevent Disclosure of Directory Information Form to the Office of the Registrar. This form must be submitted in person.
Information that is never released without your consent includes grades, tuition/fees owed, financial aid, etc. If you would like to give permission to someone else to have access to that information, you can submit a Release of Confidential Information Form to the Office of the Registrar. This form also must be submitted in person.
More information about FERPA can be found in the University Catalog. If you have questions regarding your rights under FERPA, please contact the Office of the Registrar.
