New Visiting or Nondegree Student

A Gateway to the University

Continuing Education is a gateway for individuals to connect with CU Boulder courses and services without formally applying to and enrolling in a degree program at the university.

Visiting and nondegree students enroll in CU Boulder classes year-round for a variety of reasons:

  • To earn credit in an online or on-campus course while attending another university
  • To test out university life before applying
  • To take classes in preparation for an undergraduate or graduate program
  • To enhance professional knowledge and skills
  • To explore a personal passion or new interest

Continuing Education is the home for nondegree students, whether you are enrolling in main campus or Continuing Education courses.

Visiting and nondegree students have several options for engaging in CU Boulder courses:

Visiting and nondegree students interested in enrolling in classes with prerequisites should contact an advisor to discuss evaluation of those credits and the process for enrolling.

Buff OneCard

If you plan to attend classes on campus, we strongly recommend you purchase a Buff OneCard in order to access campus services like computer labs, printing services, and dining services. Cards may be purchased for $30 from the Buff OneCard Office located in the Center for Community building in room N180.

Now that you’ve selected your favorite Continuing Education courses, email or print the information, including class number, to more easily search MyCUInfo and enroll. Still have questions? Contact an advisor.
