Summer Study at CU Denver
Do you have an I-20 at another US institution, want to take courses during summer break, and bring your credits back to your home institution? If so, non-degree admission is right for you.
Other Non-Degree Study
Do you need an I-20 from University of Colorado Denver or 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.
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.
*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.

Our certificate programs provide specialized information delivered by knowledgeable professors. Additionally, our continuing education classes help you stay current with developments in your field.
*If you want to enroll in courses identified as Continuing and Professional Education, do not apply for non-degree admission. See your program for application information.
