How do I know what type of student I am?

Freshman

You are considered a freshman if you have not enrolled at another college, university or another campus of the University of Colorado (including Continuing Education and Professional Studies) since earning your high school diploma or equivalent.

Transfer

You are a transfer student if you have enrolled at another college, university or another campus of the University of Colorado (including Continuing Education and Professional Studies) since earning your high school diploma or equivalent.

International

If you need a visa to be in the United States, you are considered an international student.  If you are a US citizen with a US passport, you will not apply as an international student.

You are a freshman undergraduate student if you are currently in secondary school or you have earned a high school diploma or its equivalent and have not enrolled in a college or university since graduation.

You are a transfer undergraduate student if you have enrolled at another college or university since graduation from secondary school, but have not completed a bachelor's degree. Preparatory years do not count as university-level work.

NonTraditional

You are considered a nontraditional student if your records reflect nontraditional grading systems, unusual criteria, no rank-in-class information or high school equivalency through the GED.  Nontraditional students will receive careful consideration and are encouraged to apply.
