The Office of Student Services (OSS) has created this page to assist you all with the transition into our program. There are many steps to complete between now and August, and this page aims to centralize all of the information to best serve you. This will reduce the number of emails we send and increase the efficiency in completing the post-admission requirements. ​​

Your first step is to save this link for reference. This is an ongoing project, so please share any feedback with us at sop.ossapps@cuanschutz.edu. ​
