Accessing Campus Services

Continuing Education students may use many campus libraries, computer labs, and other services at no cost. To gain access to these campus services, please obtain a “no fees paid” sticker (available at the Continuing Education cashier’s window) and bring the sticker along with a photo ID when you plan to use libraries or computer labs.

MyCUInfo and IdentiKey

MyCUInfo is the online campus portal and an important tool. It gives you access to credit course enrollment, your CU student email account, campus announcements, semester schedule, tuition bill, book lists, clicker registration, posted assignments, your final grades, and more.

You’ll need an Identikey, or a unique username, to log in to and access MyCUInfo. An Identikey allows you to register for CU courses and provides you with access to online services and campus computing facilities. Use your student identification number to activate your IdentiKey at

International Student Resources

The University of Colorado Boulder welcomes visiting students from around the world. Experience American culture, make friends, enjoy Boulder, and take advantage of a top-notch university. International students have two options for enrollment as nondegree students. Details below will help you find the best path for your CU-Boulder enrollment this summer:

Option #1: International travelers who enter the United States on a Visa Waiver or on a B1/B2 Tourist Visa

U.S. Immigration law prohibits any full-time study for students who enter the U. S. on the visa waiver program or on B1/B2 tourist visas. Visitors on B1/B2 tourist visas, or on the visa waiver program, enroll in a maximum of one (1) 3-credit course only if the following criteria are met:

  • Enrollment in University of Colorado Boulder course(s) will be solely for recreational purposes;
  • Course work will not be considered full time; and the course will not be used for credit toward a degree, diploma, or certificate;
  • Enrollment will be limited to one credit course per semester. Noncredit enrollment will not exceed 18 clock hours per week;
  • The course(s) are only incidental to the tourist’s visit to the U.S., and are not the main purpose of the visit.

To Apply:

Option #2: International citizens who want to study at CU-Boulder on a full-time basis on an F1 student visa

Global ACCESS, the University of Colorado Boulder’s visiting international student program, allows you to enroll in undergraduate or graduate courses at the university and earn credit as a nondegree student for one semester up to three consecutive semesters (i.e. fall, spring, summer).

Global ACCESS students must enroll as full-time students:

  • 12 undergraduate credits in fall/spring semesters
  • 6 undergraduate credits in summer
  • 6 graduate credits in fall/spring semesters
  • 3 graduate credits in summer for graduate courses

To apply, complete the Global ACCESS application and provide the following supporting enrollment materials:

  • A transcript showing graduation from high school
  • A copy of your passport page with biographical date information
  • Proof of TOEFL PB/IBT/IELTS of 537/75/6.5
  • A bank letter indicating adequate funds (see Financial information on Request an I-20 Form)

After your application is reviewed, you will be notified via email of your acceptance and we can provide assistance in obtaining an I-20 to apply for a F1 student visa. Once enrolled, Continuing Education will provide assistance with academic advising, housing, insurance, travel information, and more.
