Before you can register for classes at CU Denver you must provide proof of certain immunizations. You can read the policy and get the necessary forms on the health center's website.
Registration is done online via the UCDAccess Portal. There are several "how-tos" in the portal to help you with most tasks. UCDAccess is used by enrolled students for the following types of activities:
The University of Colorado will assign you an ID Number if you have not attended one of the four universities within the CU system prior to admittance to the program. It was included on your admission letter and is also accessible in the application portal. You will need it to register for courses and to setup your e-mail accounts.
If you have attended one of the CU universities, then your ID Number will remain the same. If you wish to change your student number you may do so by contacting the ID Services Office in the Tivoli Student Union (Room 269) on the Auraria campus at 303.556.8385.
Registration for Denver classes is done online, with the exception of Independent Studies and Doctoral Thesis credits. Use a Special Processing Form to register for Independent Study Courses and Doctoral Thesis Research hours.
Here is the helpful Registrar's website that may answer questions you have.
Make payment arrangements with the Bursar's Office, or if you are receiving financial aid, make sure your paperwork is complete. You many wish to contact the Financial Aid office.
The ID Center is located in the Tivoli Student Union in the bookstore on the Auraria campus. You must be registered for your courses AND have a print-out of your schedule with you in order to get your ID card. For more information, please call 303.556.8385.
A portion of your student fees goes towards your Denver Student ID card and bus pass. Your Denver Student ID will enable you to access the Auraria Library and Student Wellness Center.
We encourage you to visit the campus and become familiar with it before classes begin. You may arrange a campus tour by calling the Office of Admissions at 303.556.2704. Your student ID card includes an RTD transit pass.
The Disability Resources and Services Office is available to provide accommodations for students with special needs. For more information, please call 303.556.3450.
The Office of Veteran Student Services is another campus resource. For more information please call 303.556.2630.
If you are in need of housing assistance, you can find a database of housing referrals at the Information Desk inside the Tivoli Student Union (second floor) on the Auraria campus, as well as several other resources that you can employ to help with your housing search, including the Student Housing website.
You will receive information from the campus Admissions office about how to register and set up your email account. The Office of Information technology runs a help desk if you need assistance. Remember, email is the official means of communication between the university and students and policy dictates that we communicate with you through your official CU Denver email account. Please check it often.
Students may apply to graduate in the Spring, Summer, and Fall semesters. Students planning on graduating have the ability to apply for that semester’s graduation beginning the first day of course registration. The last day for students to apply for graduation is census date of the term in which they plan to graduate. Students who do not apply for graduation by the deadline will not be eligible for graduation that term.
Commencement ceremonies are held during the Fall and Spring semesters; students graduating in the Summer semester are invited to attend the Fall commencement ceremony.
All students MUST meet with their advisor at the beginning of their final term for a graduation check-out appointment. We recommend students schedule an appointment PRIOR to the add/drop deadline of their final term in case schedule adjustments need to be made to fulfill final degree requirements. After meeting with their advisor, students should apply for graduation online through UCDAccess.
Information about commencement activities (dates, special passes, cap and gowns, and graduation announcements) can be found on the Graduation website.
