The University of Colorado Boulder welcomes international students as part of our Global ACCESS, Visiting Student Program. Academically talented visiting undergraduate students enroll in regular university courses during our Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer terms. Visiting students can enjoy enriching academic experiences with our distinguished CU Boulder faculty and take classes alongside American students enrolled in our degree programs. Visiting international students have access to CU Boulder's many resources and services that help ensure student success.  You will have access to academic support services including academic advising, writing center, tutoring, libraries, and computer and digital media labs.  In addition, visiting international students have access to student services and campus amenities, including the Wardenburg Health Services (see information on medical insurance below), campus and off-campus housing services,  dining halls and recreational facilities.

Eligibility Criteria:

  1. Academic Standing: Applicants must be a current undergraduate student in good academic standing at their home institution or possess a university diploma. Please submit your university transcript.
