Community Auditor Restrictions

Participants in the Community Auditors Program must meet the following requirements:

  • Age 18-54 (Age 55 or over, see the Senior Auditor Program)
  • Not be registered as either a degree-seeking or nondegree student at CU Boulder

Auditors are not considered students and do not receive the same privileges as enrolled or nondegree students. Registered auditors receive class instruction, access to the online learning management system, and library privileges only. Acceptance to the University of Colorado Boulder as a community auditor does not guarantee eligibility for regular degree or nondegree status. To enroll in CU Boulder courses for credit as a nondegree student, please visit the ACCESS program page.

Registered students, either enrolled or suspended, may not attend courses as a Community Auditor. If an admitted degree student is interested in participating in a class without receiving credit, the student must enroll in the course for no credit. Courses taken for no credit are assessed the same tuition rate as courses taken for credit.

The following classes are not available to auditors:

  • Any class that exceeds room fire code capacity, or is waitlisted
  • Participatory courses (voice, choral, dance, painting, ceramics, computer, theater, photography, musical instrument, studio film etc.)
  • Cinema Studies studio courses and CINE/FILM 2000 – Foundations 1
