Colorado State University

Website: http://www.colostate.edu/

Colorado State University is frequently recognized for our groundbreaking research, our dedication to our land grant mission, and our academic reputation. Nearly 23,000 undergraduate students enjoy an environment of deep cooperative learning in over 70 programs across 8 colleges.

But, what we’re really proud of is our commitment to each student as a whole person – not just a student inside the classroom.

Our students can take advantage of more than 500 campus clubs and organizations, and a culture of service permeates the University. Fort Collins, situated along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, offers students quick access to outdoor adventure and a stimulating, innovative community in which to live and learn. 

We’re proud of the learning environment at Colorado State both inside and outside the classroom, and the Office of Admissions is excited to support you as you begin your college journey.

Enrollment Information

WUE Scholar Designation

While all WUE Scholars demonstrate high levels of academic achievement, eligibility criteria differ for freshmen and transfers. 

First-time Freshman Applicants

The application for admission also serves as the application for WUE consideration. Refer to our Freshman/First-Year Application Guide at admissions.colostate.edu/apply/freshmen. All on-campus undergraduate majors are WUE-eligible, but designation as a WUE Scholar is competitive. As funding allows, CSU may extend WUE to students slightly below the published selectivity level according to established criteria for holistic review.

WUE awards are granted for both the fall and spring semesters. Most freshmen apply for fall semester entry; apply by February 1 for full admission and scholarship consideration.

Transfer Applicants

The application for admission also serves as the application for WUE consideration. Refer to our Transfer Application Guide at admissions.colostate.edu/apply/transfer. Twenty (20) on-campus undergraduate majors are WUE-eligible for transfer students.

WUE Transfer Scholar awards are granted for both the fall and spring semesters. Award notices are sent within one month after the final deadline for each semester only to students given WUE designation.
