Do you want to explore CU Denver before applying to a degree program? Would you like to complete a course for professional development or transfer credits to another institution? If so, non-degree admission is right for you.
*Note that if you already have a bachelor’s degree, you will need to complete the graduate non-degree application. As a graduate non-degree student, you still will have the option to enroll in undergraduate course work. If you want to take specific courses requiring pre-requisites, we recommend that you contact the Registrar’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org before you apply.
