Enrollment for Former CU Students

Former Degree Students

If more than 12 months has passed since you enrolled in a CU Boulder course but you were previously admitted to a degree program at CU, you should fill out and submit our CE Readmission form. You will receive an email confirming receipt of your application.

If you graduated from CU Boulder and wish to enroll in university courses as a nondegree student, you will be considered a new student. Visit the Enrollment for New Nondegree Students page for information on how to get started.

Former Nondegree Students

If less than 12 months has passed since you last enrolled as a nondegree student at CU Boulder, you must term activate yourself before you may enroll in classes. In order to self-term activate:

  1. Log in to Buff Portal.
  2. Open the term activation card, click “Term-activate yourself.”
  3. Complete your preregistration items (if necessary).
  4. On the enrollment dates page, open the main menu and click “Term Information.”
  5. Click “Activate new term for enrollment.”
  6. Find your nondegree program, tick the checkbox to select that row, then click “Continue.”
  7. Select the correct term from the drop-down, then click “Continue.”

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

If more than 12 months has passed since you were enrolled as a nondegree student at CU Boulder, please complete and submit the Enrollment Application.

If approved, you will receive a student identification number to activate your Identikey and search/enroll in courses via the CU Boulder Class Search.

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, your final grades, and more.

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.

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.
