New Degree Students

Undergraduate Students

If you plan to enter an undergraduate degree program at CU-Boulder during summer 2015, you should create a MyCUBoulder portal account to access the online undergraduate application for admission. Freshman applicants may then choose 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 is completed (submitted application and required documents received) regardless of which application is used.

Note: The deadline for new student summer degree applications is January 15 for freshmen and April 1 for transfers.

If you received your degree at the end of your last term at CU-Boulder, you may either attend as a nondegree student or submit a new application for admission and be admitted in order to pursue another degree. The Leeds School of Business and the Journalism and Mass Communication Program do not accept applications for second undergraduate degrees.

Visit the CU-Boulder Applying website for general admission information.

Minimum Academic Preparation Standards (MAPS)

All new students entering the University of Colorado who finished high school in the spring of 1988 or later must meet the Minimum Academic Preparation Standards (MAPS) specified by their school or college. View these standards on the admissions website.

Graduate Students

If you are a new applicant for graduate study or a former student applying to a different graduate degree program, you must consult with your department for appropriate application forms and instructions. If you are a former graduate degree student who did not attend spring semester 2015 and are returning to your previous graduate degree program and level, you must reapply for admission through your department.
