Accessing CE Online Courses

If you have a CU login name and Identikey password, you may access your course directly through the Canvas portal.

If you do not have an Identikey:

  1. IdentiKey Activation: Go to the CU Boulder Identity Manager and click on the “Activate your Identikey” button next to the red arrow on the left hand side of the page and follow the directions on the next pages.
  2. Access your course directly through the Canvas portal using your CU Login and Identikey password.

Please note: It can take up to 48 hours from the time you enroll in a CE online course before the course will be available to you in the learning management system.

If you have questions about online courses, please contact the CE Online Credit Office at or 303-492-5148.

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