Taking Online Courses at CU Denver

As a current CU Denver student (or nondegree student if you just want to try a few out), you're able to take as many online classes as you want.

There are no hoops to jump through or forms to fill.

The registration process is exactly the same. And we've upgraded the learning management system from eCollege and Blackboard to Canvas.


Downtown Denver Campus

Our Online Course Search​ shows the online and hybrid courses that are available right now (no login or password needed).

The Course Search is helpful for planning out your schedule, but when you're ready to register, you'll need to login to UCDAccess with your student ID and password. Once you're logged in, you'll want to:

  1. Select 'Additional Search Criteria'
  2. Then choose online for 'Mode of Instruction'
  3. Once you select a class, just look for E01 under Section

If you'd like to read about the courses more in-depth, check out the course catalog​
