We know the vital role you play in helping students choose the college that best fits their style and aspirations. As we travel around the country and throughout the state of Colorado, we look forward to connecting with you as often as possible.

As you continue to advise your students during their college search, feel free to contact our admissions staff. We are happy to help. Our admissions counselors are available via email and phone and look forward to working with you.

How we approach admissions

Colorado State University works to provide access to higher education, which is why we do individualized, holistic review. In order to set students up for success based on their academic and personal readiness for CSU, we consider a wide range of factors in the admission decision. Use the freshman/first-year student application guide to help students understand how to become a Ram.

Timelines and deadlines

We know  it can be difficult to keep track of the various timelines and deadlines for prospective first year students. That’s why we built downloadable calendars just for counselors.

Our academic community

Each student brings something different to Colorado State, and that’s what makes our academic community so strong. You can play a large role in helping a student turn their passion into a major. Use our academic information while working with students throughout their college search process for a comprehensive list of majors, minors, concentrations and other programs.

Group visit opportunities

Looking to bring a class or group of students to campus? Schedule a group visit. Our group visits include an admissions information session, walking tour of campus and the option to have lunch at one of our dining centers. Reservations are required and must be scheduled at least three weeks in advance.

Student recommendations

Students are prompted to list their recommender within the application, and we email a link to a secure site where comments can be recorded and submitted. Didn’t get the email? We’ll gladly resend. Common App students should contact CAO help desk.
