Summer Students

Student studying near Varsity Pond

We are delighted that you confirmed your intent to enroll and will be starting at CU Boulder this summer!  

Your next steps are:

If you have not already, your first step after confirming is to activate your IdentiKey. Your IdentiKey is your campus username and password and you will use it to access most campus systems and services.

You also need to set-up your CU Boulder email account. We will use this account to communicate with you, so it is important that you login and start checking it regularly. 
*International students, please continue to check the email address you listed on your admission application. 

After activating your IdentiKey and Colorado.edu email account, make sure you have completed your preregistration items. You can complete these before your enrollment dates open on March 13. Preregistration items include updating contact information, reviewing and accepting terms of tuition and fee agreements, and authorizing or applying for the College Opportunity Fund, if you are a Colorado resident. 

As you get ready to register for summer classes, take some time to review the course catalog to see which classes are available and what will work with your schedule.

Beginning on March 13, both incoming freshmen and transfer students may register for Summer classes through MyCUInfo. Follow the step-by-step instructions below. Learn more about summer registration.

If you have not already, now is a good time to decide where you will be living while taking classes this summer. On-campus housing is available to students during Maymester and Sessions A-D. You may also consider family housing or off-campus housing.

You may register for one of our New Student Welcome Days. While optional for all incoming students, we encourage you to join us on campus to connect with academic advisors, faculty, current CU Boulder students, and the departments that will support you and your family as new members of our community. Stay tuned for New Student Welcome Day registration in February.

In May our orientation program, the Online Experience, will be available to you. Your first step will be to take placement tests and complete the Online Experience, which is a series of online courses focusing on student success, advising, enrolling in classes and campus resources. You will work through the sessions to unlock rewards, move on to the next section and most importantly, unlock access to enroll in classes for Fall.  You must complete the Online Experience or you will not be able to register for Fall classes. Check back for more information and pay attention to your colorado.edu email account in early May for more information about how to log in and complete the Online Experience.

We will stay in touch about your next steps, or you can always check back here. We will continue adding to this page to help guide you throughout the process! 

If you were admitted for summer, but do not enroll in or attend summer classes, you will not be eligible to register for fall. If would like to attend CU Boulder this fall and will not be taking classes this summer, please defer your admission to fall.
