Tuition Due Dates

Bills become available in Buff Portal (CUBill&Pay for authorized payers) by the second Thursday of each month after you register for classes. Payment is due on the 5th of the following month. Postmarks and post-dated checks are not honored. Dates may be subject to change without notice.

See the Bursar’s Office website for important dates.

Add, Drop, and Withdrawal Info

Enrolled students must add or drop courses by the dates and deadlines listed in their program’s academic calendar. You may add, drop, or withdraw via Buff Portal or Class Search using the instructions outlined under Review Your Registration Actions. You may also submit an online withdrawal form or send an email to

If you fail to drop by the deadline you may receive a grade of F and you may be liable for any tuition and fees. You may withdraw from a credit course after the published drop deadline. Withdrawals will result in a W on your academic record.

Administrative Drop Policy

If you do not attend your courses regularly during the first week through the last day to drop, you may be administratively dropped. Nonattendance does not constitute withdrawal. If you have questions, check with your instructor or contact us.

Grade Replacement Policy

Beginning Spring 2022, you may be eligible for grade replacement if you are a degree-seeking or nondegree student at CU Boulder who earned a C- or lower (undergrads), or a C+ or lower (grad students) in your most recent prior attempt of a course (W grades don’t count). Law students are not eligible for grade replacement. Learn more about CU Boulder’s grade replacement policy.

If you have questions about the policy, contact the CE Student Services at or schedule an appointment.

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.
