Academic Suspension/Probation Review (ASPR) for CU System Students
Transfer/readmit students with a cumulative CU GPA below 2.0 from any University of Colorado campus (Boulder, Colorado Springs or Denver) are subject to additional review by the school or college to which they are applying. Applicants must meet program requirements of the school or college to which they are applying. If requirements are not met, the applicant can be reviewed by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences for general admission to CU Denver. Applicants should allow additional processing time for this review and contact the school or college advising office for additional information.
Note: Each school and college may also have petition deadlines in place. Due to the time sensitive nature of this process, applicants should contact the school to college advising office as soon as possible.
Applicants who completed high school concurrent courses through any University of Colorado institution and have a GPA below 2.0 are not subject to additional review. However, applicants should be aware that concurrent coursework completed at a University of Colorado institution is counted toward their cumulative CU GPA.
Admission Decision Appeal
Applicants interested in appealing their admission decision should submit a letter to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions with additional information regarding circumstances that may have impeded their academic performance. Additionally, any updated test scores or coursework also should be submitted. Send letters to Admissions@ucdenver.edu and include the subject line “Admission Decision Appeal.”
Applicants may be denied admission to the university or have their admission revoked if they knowingly:
- Falsify transcripts
- Falsify test scores
- Fail to indicate and provide credentials from all previously attended institutions
- Fail to disclose criminal history or suspension/expulsion information
Applicants with criminal history and/or previous suspension expulsion may undergo additional review by the Special Admissions Committee. The Special Admissions Committee meets regularly to review criminal history and suspension/expulsion application information for students who are academically admissible to the university.
Note: Disclosing criminal history or suspension/expulsion information is required but is not grounds for automatic denial of admission.
Applicants may appeal the Special Admissions Committee’s decision when new information is available that was not included or available in the initial review of the application file. The information must be provided as part of the appeal. To request an appeal, submit a written letter to the Special Admissions Committee stating the grounds for the appeal and a request to be reconsidered for admission. This letter must be addressed to:
Special Admissions Committee
University of Colorado Denver
Campus Box 167
P.O. Box 173364
Denver, CO 80217-3364
Applicants are notified in writing of the results of the appeal. Should the appeal be denied, applicants may request in writing the appeal be submitted for review to the Dean of Students. In this event, the Special Admissions Committee will inform the Dean of Students and will provide the Dean with the application file, including information relevant to the Special Admissions Committee’s decision and the initial appeal. Applicants are notified in writing of the results of the Dean of Students’ final admission decision.
