Application information (international)

Winter Bridge

Thank you for your inquiry about our graduate program. Because of the different standards among foreign universities and the fact that applying to an American university is a costly and time-consuming task, we would like to inform you that the following requirements must be met before you can be considered for our programs.

  1. Certification of first-class standing or the equivalent of at least a B average in all examinations.
  2. Certification of adequate command of spoken and written English to insure that the student can satisfactorily pursue his studies at an American university. A score of at least 560 on the paper based TOEFL examination will be required.

    All international students whose native language is not English, who are awarded teaching assistantships, must have their English pronunciation tested when they arrive on campus by the University of Colorado International English Center. They offer free classes on English pronunciation to students they find could benefit from such help.

  3. Certification from a financial institution or sponsor that adequate funds are available to meet all your expenses for the entire period of your residence at the University of Colorado. Financial aid is not available to new foreign students, except under unusual circumstances (fellowships, teaching and research assistantships).
  4. The equivalent of at least 35 hours of undergraduate mathematics courses at an American University. Included in these courses should be at least one course in advanced calculus and one in modern algebra.

If you can meet the above requirements, please apply here. It is preferable that letters of recommendation be submitted on line and transcripts be mailed to the address below to the attention of the Graduate Program Assistant.
