CU Succeed offers students the opportunity to get a head start on college by earning college credit while still in high school. As a CU Succeed student, you'll be engaged in courses of the same academic quality and rigor as those taught at the University of Colorado Denver.
All courses are taken for a letter grade and appear on a CU Denver transcript. Plus, CU Succeed courses are offered at a reduced tuition rate so you can begin earning college credit before paying full college tuition.
What is CU Succeed Gold?
Courses are taught during regular school periods by specially qualified teachers from your high school. These instructors hold adjunct faculty appointments at CU Denver. The CU Succeed Gold program has been working successfully with students and teachers in high schools throughout Colorado since 1996.
What Is CU Succeed Silver?
Courses may be taught during school periods or after school hours. These courses are taught by CU Denver full time or part time faculty and may also involve a cooperating faculty member of the host high school. The CU Succeed Gold program has been working successfully with students and teachers in high schools throughout Colorado since 1990.
What if I don't attend CU Denver?
Courses are eligible for transfer to University of Colorado campuses, as well as to many other universities and colleges. In general, institutions that accept CU credits will accept the credits earned from CU Succeed courses. Before registering for a course you should confirm with your intended college that the course will be accepted and will apply toward requirements of your anticipated program of study.
