Preparing to Enroll for Your First Semester at MSU Denver:

To prepare for a smooth registration process your first semester, you want to ensure that all of your previous college credit has been evaluated by the Office of Admissions. As a checklist, refer to the following three steps below to make certain you are ready for registration. If you have questions about what credit has been transferred to the university, please call Transfer Services at (303) 556-3774.

Additionally, please call, write, or stop in to chat to Dr. Tiffani Baldwin (303.556.5369), MSU Denver's Coordinator of Transfer Student Success and Persistence for help with transfer credits. Come by room 230 in the Student Success Building any time to make an appointment!

Review Your Transfer Credit Evaluation: An evaluation of your transcript(s) was first completed within 48 hours after you were admitted to MSU Denver. That initial evaluation will add any eligible transfer credit to your MSU Denver student record from the college transcripts you submitted as a part of your admission application. A report of your transfer credit will be sent to your MSU Denver email and is updated any time you submit a new official transcript to the Office of Admissions.

Your transfer credit evaluation will only include courses that are transferrable to MSU Denver. Courses that did not transfer or received a grade below a C- will not be included.

Step 2

Additional Transcripts? In Progress Coursework? Ask for a Preliminary Evaluation: If you have courses that are in progress at your previous college or courses on a transcript that has not yet been evaluated by the Office of Admissions, a transfer counselor can complete a preliminary evaluation (unofficial evaluation) using an unofficial copy of a transcript. This evaluation will not officially add transfer credit to your student record, but it will allow you to meet with an academic advisor or a faculty member for assistance in registering for classes.

Step 3

Meet with an Academic Advisor: We strongly encourage each student to meet with his/her academic advisor in order to create an academic plan. You are welcome to meet with advisors in the Academic Advising Center (SSB 170) and/or with a faculty advisor in your academic department. If you received a preliminary evaluation from Transfer Services (see Step #2), the assistance of an academic advisor may be necessary in registering for certain courses.
