Applying to Colorado State University

We want to make applying to Colorado State University as easy as possible. That’s why we have created application guides for each student type. Once you have determined what type of student you are, your guide will explain all of the information you need to apply. It also contains the links to the proper applications.

We encourage you to reach out to your counselor with questions at any time during the application process.

Transfer Students

You will apply as a transfer if you’ve attended a regionally accredited college after high school graduation. If your only college coursework was taken while in high school (prior to graduation), apply as a freshman/first-year student.

The Equine Sciences program does not have any additional requirements outside of CSU’s general admissions requirements. However, a 2.0 cumulative GPA for all college work attempted is the threshold for consideration. The graphic to the right highlights the type of student we believe it takes to be a Ram.
