Apply Now

Your application will not be considered if you have pre-requisite courses in progress. Admission is granted on a space available basis.

Application Timing:

Deadline for spring admission: January 3rd

Deadline for fall admission: May 31st

If you apply after the posted deadlines, your application will be reviewed for the next semester. It is recommended that students apply prior to the registration period so that they are guaranteed the best course availability - October 1st for spring and March 1st for fall. Leeds can’t guarantee the usual selection of courses for those who submit applications after the registration period, but we will accept applications up until the dates listed above. Admission is not guaranteed and is based on space availability.

Transfer to Leeds (from outside CU-Boulder)

While completing the University of Colorado at Boulder transfer process, you can apply to the Leeds School of Business.

You'll want to complete the following courses before applying to CU:

  • Calculus (1 semester) or Business Statistics
  • Microeconomics
  • Macroeconomics

Before you become a Leeds Student it's a good idea to start taking classes to fill your non-business degree requirements and your introductory business core requirements.

Be aware that once admitted you will need to complete a minimum of 30 credits in business courses as a residency requirement. If you have questions, see an advisor.

The CU Admissions Office handles all admissions for transfer students to Leeds. If you have specific questions about the admissions process and/or requirements, please contact that office directly at the CU Boulder Admissions Website.

Taking Business Core (BCOR) Classes as a Non-Business Student

During the Fall and Spring semesters, BCOR classes are restricted to business students only. As a non-business student, you may take BCOR courses through Continuing Education or in the summer. Registration in BCOR courses is not restricted during summer terms but you may need to contact the Leeds advising office to get assistance with registration.

Leeds Academic Advising is offering both in-person and remote advising.

Our office is open and advisors are available for in-person as well as video (Zoom) advising appointments and drop-ins. You can continue to schedule appointments with your academic advisor here
