What Students Are Saying

3.65 Average Rating
If you are already in community College University of Colorado Denver you are almost grantee a spot at this school. But you do need a certain amount of college credits. I think you will enjoy the campus it is mixed with two other colleges.
Wenda from Littleton, CO
Take advantage of the numerous clubs on campus and the school also has an honors program called the University Honors and Leadership Program (UHL) which offers many volunteer opportunities in addition to honors classes and an honors scholarship. Park in the Campus Village lot--$2.50/day and is the cheapest lot on the whole campus.
Christianna from Denver, CO
Definitely talk with counselors about your career path. I learned that medical schools don't like to see online classes on transcripts. I took three, so I know I'm not going to take anymore. You can get helpful tips and suggestions to help make school easier, more enjoyable, and more successful.
Anjole' from Colorado Springs, CO
Either do really well on the SAT/ACTs or do well in school because if you get accepted and you're an out-of-state student, then you are eligible for becoming a Denver Bound scholarship student!
Kara from Kapolei, HI
This isn't your typical university, the student body is different as well as the instructors expectations.
Jose from Brighton, CO

It's beneficial to know that upon registering for classes, one should be aware that even if a class reads “filled,” this doesn’t always necessarily mean you can’t get signed up for the class. By directly confronting the professor of the specific class about the proposed issue, you might be given a seat.


Another fact of pinnacle importance: you’re not going to be hunted down to be told everything you need to know to support your wallet. You have to conduct research on your own time to make sure your doing things right. Keep an eye out for due dates, especially if you’re completing applications/forms for financial aid. This includes due dates for turning in your FAFSA and any other forms that go with it, as well as for applying to receive scholarships. Your go-to person will be your advisor. Email, or set up an appointment, which ever works.

I would recommend that you come in with a plan. This plan should include how many classes you need to take each semester to graduate on time, whether or not you need to work, who your counselor will be and all the advantages that this University offers. It is not easy and they will treat you like an adult; which includes both privileges and consequences. I would say to get to know your professors, they may be big and mean in the classroom but outside they are a phenomenal source of help, insight and friendship. Being in a location that promotes diversity and change, this campus will be a circus of opportunity. They hold conferences, well known guest speakers from a host academic fields, work shops to promote growth in many personal areas and finally, dozens of clubs.
Nicole from Morrison, CO
Going to UCD was the best decision I ever made. As a state resident, I have the option to live at home, on campus or in a dorm so if dorm living isn't an atmosphere a prospective student is looking for, the other options are available. The University is very supportive of students, with review sessions and recitations for classes. Many professors are easy to contact and are very approachable.
Courtney from Parker, CO
UCD is not a typical college experience, so if you are looking for a movie-like university life, you might have to look elsewhere. In addition, UCD is stronger in the natural sciences and pre-health career paths, so if you are more interested in fine arts or social sciences, you might want to consider another college.
Catherine from Parker, CO
Stick with it. The only thing i regret this year is backing out of somethings i shouldn't have. The best way to become a solid college student is to get involved. The rate of drop out students increses when they don't get involved with the UCD community. And if you're going to drop out it's just a waste of money. And trust me if you're a broke college student the thought of losing money makes you want to cry. Just get out there and find something you'll love. The people are great and you're going to find friends that have the same interests as you which will make the adjustment to college a lot easier and a little less scary.
