SPECIAL STATUS

Take courses at DU to update your skills or bolster your education, even if you're not enrolled in a formal graduate degree program-by enrolling as a special status student.

Enrollment Details
  • You must hold a bachelor's degree to be eligible for special status.
  • To apply, complete the special-status form with the appropriate departmental signature. You must re-apply to the appropriate graduate department each term. Proof of degree is required.
  • Once accepted, you may register with new students immediately prior to the beginning of each term (not during priority registration).
  • Some academic units do not allow special-status enrollment.
  • Admission as a special-status student does not guarantee admission to any regular DU graduate degree program.
  • Special Status students are not eligible for federal financial aid or scholarships. For information on private financing options, please go to the Office of Financial Aid's website
  • International applicants must demonstrate English proficiency and complete the international supplemental form.

If at a later time you want to enter a graduate degree program at DU, you may apply up to 15 special status quarter hours to your degree, with departmental approval. Just follow the regular graduate application requirements, including submitting the application fee, to get started.
