We offer a variety of educational options for non-degree seeking students.

Non-Degree Students

Students may enroll at Colorado State University-Pueblo as a non-degree seeking student in one of the following categories:

A guest student

Guest Student – No Credit

Applicants who wish to register as a guest (no credit) without degree-seeking status should contact the Office of Admissions for current policies and procedures. A guest (no credit) student may carry up to 6 hours per term. A guest (no credit) student is ineligible for financial aid. In place of a grade for each course, students receive the symbol NC (no credit) on their transcripts.

Guest Student – For Credit

Guest (for credit) student category is reserved for applicants who wish to enroll in courses without degree seeking status. Applicants who wish to register as a guest (for credit) student are required to complete a short application with the Office of Admissions each term that they wish to enroll. Guest (for credit) students are Not Required to submit official transcripts, test scores or an application fee; however test scores or a transcript will be required to enroll in an English or Math course. Tuition and fees are based on the number of credits for which they register and are Ineligible to receive financial aid. A guest (for credit) student may carry up to 15 hours per semester and may earn a maximum of 30 semester hours while maintaining visiting status. A guest (for credit) student must maintain a 2.000 cumulative grade-point average. Guest (for credit) students who wish to exceed the 30-semester hour maximum must formally apply for admission.

Personal or Professional Interest

Would you like to take a class to help you with professional development in your current job or just to satisfy your own personal interests? Contact Extended Studies to find out more.

Audit a Class

Would you like to observe a class but not have to take the tests, do the homework, or receive a grade? Auditing a class allows you to do that for a grade of NC (no credit). When you audit a class, you pay the same tuition and fees as a student enrolled for credit. After the drop period has passed you may not change your status.

Senior Citizens

Are you a senior citizen who would like to take advantage of a college course? If you are 65 years of age or older, or 62 and retired, you may audit courses on a space available, non-degree student basis without paying tuition and mandatory fees. However, program, course, and department fees will be accessed. (instructor approval is required).
