Access undergraduate and graduate courses for personal or professional development as a non-degree student.

Take CU Boulder courses as a guest student.

Available Credit Courses for Eligible Special Students (ACCESS) enables non-degree students, who are not in formal degree programs at CU Boulder, a pathway to take undergraduate or graduate courses on both main campus and at Continuing Education. You can enroll in courses through ACCESS to work toward enrolling in a degree program either at CU Boulder or another institution, or take courses to earn credit while enrolled at another institution.

Come take that CU Boulder course you’ve been thinking about. Test out the University. Learn from some of the best faculty in the country. Whatever your goals may be, let us help you “access” the University of Colorado Boulder.

How ACCESS Works

Non-degree enrollment is offered by University of Colorado Boulder for fall, spring, and summer. In the fall and spring, you can enroll in main campus classes through a pathway called ACCESS one week before classes begin each semester. If you are interested in summer class enrollment as a non-degree student, please visit the Summer Session website
