We support students by:

  • Providing general onboarding such as transfer student orientation
  • Referring students to appropriate advisors and departments
  • Reviewing degree plans and answering transfer credit questions
  • Hosting registration events
  • Helping students get connected on campus
  • Offering information regarding campus resources

Transfer Student Forms

Transfer Course Approval Form

If you have a course that did not transfer after we have completed an official transfer evaluation of your credits, take a copy of this form to the academic department that offers the course at MSU Denver for approval (e.g. if it is a math course, contact the Math department). Once you have the appropriate approvals, please submit the form to the Registrar’s office.



Previous Degree Form

If your program requires that certain previous coursework be pulled out of your first degree and applied to your program at MSU Denver so it appears on your degree progress report, have your departmental advisor complete this form and submit it to the Registrar’s office.
