Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
After MSU Denver receives a transfer students’ official transcripts from other institutions, the MSU Denver Transcript Evaluators make the determination as to how the courses taken elsewhere will transfer in. In some cases, they need to have the experts within the Department of Computer Sciences (the math and computer science faculty who teach the courses and create the curriculum) perform the evaluation.
If you are a new transfer student whose transcripts have not yet been evaluated by the Office of Transfer Services, you will receive your evaluation once it is complete (see here) and should not request transfer course evaluations at this time.
If you are wondering how your courses taken at other Colorado institutions might transfer in, see here. If your transcripts from another institution are pending evaluation, or have not yet been received by Transfer Services, and you want to register for a class for which the prerequisite is met by a transfer course, please send your unofficial transcripts and request for an override to Computer Sciences Advisors.
If the Office of Transfer Services has sent you to the Department of Computer Sciences for transfer course evaluations, please follow the instructions detailed below:
All departmental CS/CSS course transfer evaluations must be submitted to and will be processed in Slate, either by the transfer service at the registrar or by a student’s major or minor program advisor. No transfer approval form in fillable .pdf file will be accepted via email.
Note: Each request should be submitted only once in Slate, regardless who submits it. It will be routed to us in Slate for a departmental review automatically or by the registrar, if needed.
When a transfer course does not have an equivalent course at MSU Denver, a lower division course will be given the number 8000 and an upper division course will be given the number 9000 (with the CS prefix). Please see a CS faculty advisor to discuss how such a course might apply to your degree.
