Eligible students must pay a $200 fee prior to registration. The $200 deposit is applied against tuition bills. Payment can be made at the student service center in the North Classroom on the Auraria campus, by calling the bursar's office at 303-556-2710 or through the web registration system.

Graduate business courses may not be taken on a pass/fail or non-credit basis.
Course credits earned appear on official CU transcripts and are reflected in cumulative graduate GPA calculations.
