Students can apply to CU in D.C. at any time and are encouraged to apply well in advance of their semester of participation in the program.  To be deemed eligible to participate in the program, however, students must meet the following eligibility criteria during their semester of participation in the program:

  • Undergraduate student from the CU Boulder, Colorado Springs, or Denver campus
  • Enrolled as a full-time CU student
  • Have a minimum GPA of 2.75
  • Have sophomore standing or have completed 60 credit hours

On occasion, the CU in D.C. team will make an exception to the outlined eligibility requirements on a case by case basis.  Additionally, through the program application and interview process, the CU in D.C. team will determine if a candidate is suitable for the program.  CU in D.C. seeks to enroll students who are mature, responsible, and who will represent the university and herself/himself in a professional and positive manner.  A strong candidate is ready for the challenges of a first-time professional experience, is a highly motivated person, and has a strong academic record.
