Enrollment

Enrollment for Current Students

If you are currently a degree-seeking student and you have enrolled in a CU Boulder course within the past 12 months, you are automatically enabled to enroll for Continuing Education courses through Buff Portal, the CU Boulder student portal.

If you are nondegree student, you must use Self Term Activation in Buff Portal before enrolling or contact our office to be term activated. In order to self-term activate:

  1. Log in to Buff Portal using your IdentiKey.
  2. Open the main menu and search for “term activation.”
  3. Select the term activation card to view it and then follow the link.
  4. Complete the preregistration items, if needed.
  5. Select your nondegree program, then click “Select this row.”
  6. Click “Continue.”
  7. Select the term you’d like to register for then click “Continue.”

You are now term-activated. You will need to term-activate every semester as long as you are a nondegree student.

Buff Portal and IdentiKey

Buff Portal is the online campus portal and an important tool. It gives you access to credit course enrollment, your CU student email account, campus announcements, semester schedule, tuition bill, book lists, clicker registration, Canvas, and your final grades. Learn more about Buff Portal.

You’ll need an Identikey, or a unique username, to log in to and access Buff Portal. An Identikey allows you to register for CU courses and provides you with access to online services and campus computing facilities. Use your student identification number to activate your IdentiKey at identikey.colorado.edu.

If you have questions, contact us at ceregistration@colorado.edu or 303-492-5148.

Consenting to Do Business Electronically

When you log in to Buff Portal for the first time, you’ll be asked to consent to conduct business electronically at CU. If you don’t consent, you’ll lose access to the portal and instead receive information about how to conduct your official university business offline.

If you have questions, contact us at ceregistration@colorado.edu 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.
