Eligibility to Enroll in Credit Courses
You need a high school diploma or high school equivalency diploma (GED, TASC, or HiSET) to enroll in credit courses. If you are under 22 years of age as of Sept. 15 for fall or Jan. 15 for spring and not officially admitted or enrolled in a CU Boulder degree program, you must meet criteria similar to those of freshmen entering the university. To determine your eligibility to take credit classes, you must meet (by phone or in person) with a Continuing Education academic advisor and provide copies of your high school transcript and SAT or ACT scores.
In addition, some courses at CU–including mathematics, engineering, language and all graduate-level courses–may be restricted. Proof of completed prerequisites or departmental permission may be required to enroll. Contact an academic advisor with any questions you have about the course(s) you intend to take.
Students with University of Colorado with service indicators (financial, academic, student conduct, etc.) may not be eligible to enroll. Students should contact a Continuing Education academic advisor with questions about academic probation/suspension/dismissal from the Boulder campus. More about probation and suspension.
