Final Transcript Required

Admission is provisional until we receive a final, official transcript reflecting completion of all course work and proof of graduation or degree completion (as applicable).

High School Graduation (or Equivalent) Required

Freshman/first-year applicants can be admitted with high school graduation pending (i.e., during their final year of high school) with the expectation that proof of graduation is provided before the start of their first semester. Financial Aid cannot be not released without proof of high school graduation or equivalent. A hold is placed on course registration prior to the start of the second semester for students who have not demonstrated high school graduation or equivalent.

Transfer applicants with fewer than 60 credits in transfer must demonstrate high school graduation before an admission decision can be rendered. Financial Aid cannot be not released without proof of high school graduation or equivalent.

Affirmation Statements and Conduct Requirements

Before submitting an application to CSU, students must acknowledge that all information in the application and any other supporting materials is their own work, factually true and honestly presented. Applicants also signify their understanding that they may be subject to a range of possible disciplinary actions, including admission revocation, expulsion or revocation of course credit, grades and degree should the information they have certified be false. If applicable, sponsoring agencies are informed of this decision.

CSU is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment that fosters student success, and our pre-admission review of non-academic conduct is one component (authorized by C.R.S. 23-5-106.5). A limited range of past non-academic conduct incidents receive confidential consideration prior to the application review process and do not automatically disqualify an applicant from full consideration for non-degree enrollment, admission or scholarships. Applicants have the right to appeal an admission or enrollment decision made based on any information required to be disclosed at the point of application. Students may be subject to additional, broader conduct review after admission for campus housing and/or campus activities. As part of the Affirmation Statement requirement in an application, all applicants agree to update their application record in the event they experience a non-academic conduct incident after application submission.

Selective Service Registration

In compliance with C.R.S. 23-5-118, all males between the ages of 17 years and 9 months and 26 years must respond to a Selective Service Registration prompt within the application. While not all males are required to register with the Selective Service (visit for a list of exceptions), those who are required to register must certify registration under oath before being allowed to register for courses. Individuals providing false information are subject to penalty of law and disenrollment.

Immunization Requirement

CSU, in compliance with Colorado State laws and Health Department regulations, requires persons born January 1, 1957 or later to show proof of two vaccinations for measles and mumps, and one vaccination for rubella (MMR) or to show written evidence of laboratory tests showing immunity.

Colorado law, Colo. Rev. Stat. § 23-5-128, also requires every student residing in student housing to fulfill two requirements for Meningococcal Vaccine:

  1. Access the CSU Health Network Portal to sign a statement that the student has reviewed the Meningococcal Disease Information Document, which describes meningococcal disease and the vaccine that can prevent the disease.
  2. Indicate whether student a) received the Meningococcal Vaccine, b) plans to have the vaccine administered, or c) is “waiving” the requirement and declining to receive the vaccine.

Submit immunization records or laboratory results to the CSU Health Network prior to arrival at school. Additional information concerning immunization should be directed to:
