Admissions General Information

We are pleased that you are applying for admission to Metropolitan State University of Denver. To ensure timely notification, be sure to fill out the application completely and submit all required documentation.

If you are admitted but do not choose to enroll for the stated term, your file will remain active for one year. After that time a new application, fee and required credentials must be resubmitted.

The University offers services for disabled students through the Disability Services Office. For information, call 303-556-8387 or TTY 303-556-8484.

The University uses two categories for classifying applicants: those who are 19 years old or younger and those who are 20 or older.

Based on the University's modified open admission system, each category has its own admission requirements and procedures. Complete admission requirements may be found in the current University Catalog.

Applicants holding temporary visas should fill out the International Student Application for Admission which must be completed instead of this application. The International Student Application details specific requirements applicable to international students.

CLEP: College Level Exam Program 

Students at MSU Denver can earn up to 30 credits of general studies and up to 60 credits through CLEP. Each test is $80 (paid to CLEP), which students will pay for when they register through our office. In addition, we will be charging an administrative fee of $25 (waived for active duty military per CLEP policy), paid when the student arrives at their testing time.  CLEP testing for veterans (on the GI Bill) is currently paid for by the GI Bill.  For more information, contact the Office of Assessment and Testing.
