If you have completed any college-level work since graduating from high school, you are considered a transfer student. You’re not alone. Arriving from institutions representing almost every state and several foreign countries, more than 60 percent of transfer students enter CU-Boulder within three years of leaving high school. Thirty-one percent begin as freshmen and 45 percent as sophomores; 24 percent are juniors and seniors. Transfer students face transition issues similar to those experienced by first-year students. Spending time to establish new friendships and learn about university resources can help.
Academic advisors can refer you to university resources, and are a consistent contact throughout your time at CU-Boulder. Arts and sciences open option students are advised through the Academic Advising Center in Woodbury 109; other majors are advised through their major department within their respective college or school.
If you have questions about the evaluation of your transfer credit, call or stop by the Office of Admissions in Regent 125 or call 303-492-6301. Questions regarding a degree audit or how transfer credit applies to specific degree requirements should be directed to your academic advisor.
