Fresh Start Program

The Academic Fresh Start policy allows previously admitted undergraduate students to establish a new academic record upon returning to Colorado State University to complete a degree already in progress. It allows students who were academically dismissed or who left on academic probation to return in good academic standing.

Much less frequently, it will be used by students who left in good standing and want to improve their GPA in preparation for application to graduate or professional school.

An Academic Fresh Start allows for a change in academic standing once an applicant is approved to return; it does not guarantee eligibility to return. For eligibility requirements and how to apply please visit the Academic Fresh Start website.

Please note that other institutions are not obligated to recognize our Academic Fresh Start policy and may not honor the new GPA.

CSU Health Network

The CSU Health Network is a student support service that provides a full range of medical, mental health, and health education and prevention services to optimize the health of students and the campus community.
