The deadline to submit the online application and the Enrollment Memorandum of Understanding is September 1, 2021. Fall ACCESS registration opens on August 16.
In order to enroll in Summer Session classes, students must get written approval from a parent or guardian and a high school official. To apply for Summer Session, fill out the High School Dual Enrollment application and a memorandum of understanding.
The deadline to submit summer application materials is May 10.
You can search course listings online prior to enrolling. Summer registration for high school students begins on Monday, March 8.
After your completed application is processed, you will receive an invitation to enroll from CU Boulder. The invitation will include all the information you need to enroll in courses via the CU Boulder Class Search.
Some courses at CU, including mathematics, engineering, language and all graduate-level courses, may be restricted and will require either proof of completed prerequisites or departmental permission to enroll. Please contact email@example.com with any questions you have about the course you intend to take.
High School Dual Enrollment in Summer
High school students may enroll in summer courses, however, district-sponsored tuition assistance is only available during the fall and spring semesters. Participation requires written permission from both a parent/guardian and a high school counselor/principal (home school students require parent permission only).
