Before You Apply

- Students are advised to confer with department chairs and/or coordinators, Academic Advisor, or Program Advisor before registering inter-institutionally.
- Before enrolling at an institution, you should confirm that desired courses will satisfy degree requirements at your home institution. There is also a limit to the number of credits that can transfer.
- You are responsible for following the procedures and deadlines set by both home and host institutions if you participate in the Inter-Institutional Program.

Inter-Institutional Courses with MSU Denver & CU Denver
MSU Denver & CU Denver have an inter-institutional agreement that allows CCD students to take select courses at MSU Denver or CU Denver if space is available. The tuition will be paid at CCD, excluding any fees that may be required. MSU Denver and CU Denver students can also take select courses at CCD if space is available, and they will pay all tuition through their home institution.
For CCD students, the tuition for all classes will be paid at CCD, excluding any fees that may be required. CCD students have the advantage of paying lower tuition rate for courses offered by the host institution while MSU Denver and CU Denver students have access to a diverse selection of electives and courses that may not be available at their home institution. Online, off-campus, or extended campus courses are not covered under this agreement.
