Course Selection and Enrollment

High school students enroll in CU Boulder classes through Continuing Education as visiting, nondegree students. You must work with your high school counselor, parent/guardian, and the CU Boulder program coordinator to determine which CU Boulder courses best fit your goals.

To enroll, you must show evidence you meet all prerequisites for the CU Boulder courses you wish to take. If you completed the prerequisite at a community college, you must submit a copy of your unofficial transcript. If you have taken an AP test, an unofficial copy of your score (that includes your name) can also work for prerequisite verification.

For students interested in taking a foreign language, CU Boulder offers an online placement assessment. You are welcome to speak with your high school teacher or a CE academic advisor about appropriate course placement as well.

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.
