Choose your own schedule

What makes CU Denver’s online program different (and kind of awesome) is that you can choose your schedule.

Not just between online AND on campus (which makes CU Denver unique).

But rather, you can choose your schedule to balance school with work and family obligations. Without having to give up:

  • Quality (the same faculty teach online who teach on campus)
  • Options (450 online courses and over 20 fully online degrees)
  • Success (students who take an online class are 1.5x more likely to graduate)
  • Reputation (whether you take classes online, on campus, or both, you receive the same CU degree)

Taking your online courses in Colorado, or anywhere around the world, you'll receive the relevant knowledge and skills you need, while keeping the schedule you want to keep.

Finish Your Degree Online

If you have taken at least one course at a community college or four-year institution, you are eligible to apply as a transfer student. With many programs available online, you are sure to find one that helps you shift or advance your career. Transfer students are required to submit transcripts from previous institutions along with completing the online application.

You can learn more about the credit transfer process, talk to an admissions counselor, or learn about admissions requirements from our admissions office. In addition, you can sign up for a free transferology account to get an idea of how your credits will transfer. Note: Only the admissions office can provide an official transfer evaluation.
