NON-DEGREE ADMISSIONS


Is non-degree admission right for you​?



Interested in exploring a program before applying for formal admission? Maybe you want to complete a course for professional development? If so, non-degree admission may be a good option for you.


Admission requirements


Students who are trying out classes at CU Denver do so with purpose. Learn about what it takes to join their ranks as a non-degree seeking student. 

  • You must be age 20 or older. If under 20, you can only apply for Summer semester. 
  • Have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher for all coursework taken, and be eligible to return to any college or university previously attended. 
  • You must either be a new applicant, or have completed a CU Denver degree. If you have a degree-seeking application pending, or if you were refused admission to a degree-seeking program you are not eligible for non-degree admission. 

Some courses and programs have additional admission requirements. Contact your program of interest to learn more.
