Students should begin the application process by creating their MyCUBoulder account and then choosing either the University of Colorado Boulder application or the Common Application to apply. Students must choose ONLY ONE application and use only that application all the way through to submission. CU-Boulder does not prefer one application over the other and all students will be reviewed in the order their application file is completed (submitted application and required documents received) regardless of which application is used.
Students applying to CU-Boulder should track the status of their application status through their MyCUBoulder account. Find out more >
