If you are determined to be “on track,” you will be notified before your registration window and provided instructions on how to register for restricted business classes.
- If you meet all IUT requirements at the end of the semester, your IUT application will be approved and you will be admitted to the college/school/program.
- If you do NOT meet all IUT requirements at the end of the semester, your IUT application will be denied and you will be removed from major/college/school/program restricted courses.
Advising for IUT to Leeds
Advising and information sessions are available in Koelbel 201 and virtually on Zoom.
- Schedule an IUT Group Advising appointment: Appointment Link
- Once you’ve attended a group advising appointment, you can schedule an IUT Individual Appointment.
You cannot schedule an individual appointment with an advisor until you’ve attended one group advising session. During this session you will learn about IUT requirements, how your credits will apply to business, determine your potential graduation date, and have any questions answered with a Leeds advisor.
Students must have completed all requirements to gain admission.
You must be meeting the On-Track Guidelines or all the requirements to apply.
Your application will be considered for the “on track” status if you have pre-requisite courses in progress. Admission is granted on a space available basis.
The Leeds IUT requirements and policies only apply if students are requesting a Change or Add on their application.
- IUT Change: Switch your current major for a major in a new college/school/program
- IUT Add: Keep your current major and add a second major in a new college/school/program
- IUT Drop: Keep one and drop one of your current majors in two different college/school/programs
Final deadline for spring admission: January 2nd
Final 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 by the on track dates so that they are guaranteed the best course availability. Leeds can’t guarantee the usual selection of courses for those who submit applications after the on track deadlines, but we will accept applications up until the dates listed above. Admission is not guaranteed and is based on space availability.
The Intra-University Transfer (IUT) Drop Application requirements and deadlines differ from the IUT Add/Change Application for the Leeds School of Business and may have financial and academic ramifications for students. The IUT Drop Application ONLY applies to students who are pursuing degrees in at least two DIFFERENT colleges/schools/programs AND wish to DISCONTINUE one major. For more information, deadlines, and the IUT Drop Application, please visit the CU Boulder Intra-University Transfer (IUT) webpage.
Transfer to Leeds (from outside CU-Boulder)
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 unless you qualify as “on track” as detailed above. 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.
