CU Success Stories

With more than 140,000 graduates, CU Denver has awarded more graduate degrees than any other public Colorado institution. Basically, one third of all graduate degrees in the state are CU Denver alumni.​

With that in mind, CU Online has been around for almost 20 years (first CU Denver online courses were offered in 1996), so there are plenty of success stories of students taking some online courses or all online.
