Non-Degree Programs

CU Denver knows there are people who want to learn so they can enrich their lives. This is why we offer non-degree programs. Students in non-degree programs take the same classes as degree-seeking students, taught by our knowledgeable professors. Non-degree programs work for people who want to take a course for professional development, personal interest, or simple curiosity. It is also a great way for students enrolled at other institutions to earn extra credit by taking summer classes at CU Denver.

Non-degree programs are also a good way to discover if CU Denver is right for you. Students who first attend non-degree programs may ultimately decide to apply for traditional degree-granting undergraduate or graduate admission.

Lifelong Learners

Area residents age 60+ can enroll in CU Denver’s Lifelong Learners Program to take classes on a non-credit, non-tuition basis. Keep your mind active by learning something new or revisiting subjects you enjoy.
