CU Boulder Continuing Education allows students to take graduate courses and complete certificates without having to apply for admission into our MS or PhD degree program. Students can take courses based on their professional interests or to fulfill certificate requirements. Students who subsequently decide to seek admissions to our graduate program can transfer up to 9 continuing education credit hours towards an AES masters or doctoral degree. Transfer of credit is contingent to approval by CU Boulder’s Graduate School and the AES department. Graduate courses used to fulfill undergraduate degree requirements are not accepted for transfer.
