You can take undergraduate classes at DU for personal interest or professional development, even if you're not an enrolled DU student. You can also use non-degree status to acquire credits before transferring to a home institution. Courses are offered in the fall, winter and spring academic quarters. We also offer programs for visiting students in the summer.
Courses taken as a non-degree student don't automatically count toward a degree. Upon acceptance to DU's undergraduate degree program, we'll review your coursework to determine if it can be applied toward a degree.
International students should contact International Student Admission.
Three Quarter Maximum
Non-degree students may attend classes at DU for a maximum of three quarters. Past this point, you must apply to DU's undergraduate program. Admission as a non-degree student does not guarantee admission as an undergraduate.
Non-degree courses are only offered during the fall, winter and spring quarters. If you wish to take classes during the summer, please register as a visiting student through the Summer@DU program.
If you've earned a bachelor's degree and would like to take a graduate or undergraduate course, you'll need to apply through graduate admission. View our graduate programs to learn about our offerings, and visit our graduate non-degree students page to learn how to apply.
