Taking Online Courses at CU Denver

Current online students have described the online environment being flexible, convienent and being able to work at your own pace. With that, students have also said that the online environment will test your self-discipline, time management skills and ability to learn independently.

Being an online student with CU Online, still means that you are an enrolled student at the University of Colorado Denver. You can still register for courses the same way you would a face-to-face course and your degree will not have "Online" on the diploma. CU Online is here to support you throughout your online course(s) journey. 

How to register for online classes

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 extra hoops to jump throug​h or forms to fill.

The registration process is exactly the same. 

Register for classes >



Your online courses are designed and delivered by Canvas, which integrates with hundreds of apps and let's the CU Denver professors make their online course engaging and easy to keep up with.

First, please verify the classes you are enrolled in by going to the UCD Access system​.
