Concurrent registration enables students to take courses on another University of Colorado campus if they are unable to take the degree-required courses at CU-Boulder. If students plan to take at least one course at CU-Boulder, they are able to register concurrently on another CU campus.
Host campus: For Boulder campus students, the term "host campus" defines the University of Colorado campus other than Boulder where students are taking concurrent course work.
Home campus: A CU-Boulder student's "home campus" is Boulder.
If a student wants to take course work on another University of Colorado campus but not go through the concurrent registration program, they must apply for admission to that campus, follow its registration procedures, and check with the dean's office for approval. (Students in the College of Arts and Sciences may not register at the Denver or Colorado Springs campus except in the summer.)
This program allows graduate students from participating institutions to take courses at host campuses at no additional cost to the student and without the student having to apply to the host campus. The Reciprocal Exchange Program is an agreement between the following state supported institutions of Colorado: the University of Colorado, Colorado State University, Colorado School of Mines and the University of Northern Colorado.
The graduate student must be registered for the minimum number of hours to be charged a full tuition load at the home campus.

Nondegree students are able to enroll in CU-Boulder Main Campus courses (undergraduate or graduate) on a first-come, first-served basis through Continuing Education. Some ACCESS students take courses for personal or professional development, while others plan to enroll in a degree program at CU-Boulder in the future.
Certain individuals who are not registered students may be able to audit regularly scheduled classes with an audit card. Auditors must get permission from the professor to audit a class prior to purchasing the audit card. For more information, visit Community Auditor Registration or contact the Division of Continuing Education at 303-492-5148.
Colorado residents aged 55 or older, visit CU-Boulder Alumni Association for information about the senior auditor program.
