Evening Credit

Request Information

Evening Credit Format

Evening credit courses give you more learning options during the fall and spring semesters. Evening credits are just like those awarded on main campus. Grades count toward your GPA and your transcript doesn’t distinguish between evening and daytime courses.

Some of our courses are in a unique hybrid format, which consists of course work conducted both online and in the classroom. Please read the course description carefully to determine if your course is a classroom-online hybrid offering. These courses require consistent and dependable Internet access.

Final Exams and Grades for Evening Credit

Final exams are held the last day of the class. Final grades will be available on MyCUInfo approximately 2 weeks after a class ends. If you need an official transcript, visit the registrar’s office website for information.

Parking and Campus Map

Course locations are included in each course description. For information about parking at night at CU Boulder, see the Parking & Transportation Services website. To find a building, refer to the CU Boulder campus map.

Students enrolled in university credit courses through Continuing Education may be eligible for financial assistance. Continuing Education has a financial aid advisor to assist you in exploring all the options available to you, whether you are a degree or nondegree student.
