Everyone is welcome to apply. CU Denver values a culture of inclusion and does not discriminate on aspects of identity, including but not limited to gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, ability status, veteran status, nationality, citizenship, religion, and socioeconomic background.

CU Denver seeks to identify applicants who are likely to be successful in a rigorous academic program of study. Admission decisions are based on many factors, the most important being:

  • Previous academic performance
  • Evidence of academic ability and accomplishment as indicated by scores on national aptitude tests
  • Evidence of maturity, motivation, and potential for academic success

CU Denver may deny admission to applicants or readmission to former students whose total credentials indicate an inability to assume obligations of performance and behavior deemed essential by the university.

Note: The University of Colorado Denver reserves the right to change the admission decision at any time if additional credentials are received that affect your qualifications.
