How to Register?

You may attend online education classes in a variety of different ways at Naropa University. Each type of student has slightly different registration and admissions requirements. Please choose below how you would like to engage in our online campus and follow the instructions.
  • Naropa Program Students: If you have been accepted as a Naropa degree-seeking student, first contact your academic advisor and then register for individual classes via the Student tab on MyNaropa.
  • Visiting students: If you have not been accepted (or have been accepted to begin in a future semester), please visit the Distance Learning Registration form on the Public Registration tab on MyNaropa. As a non-program student you can take selected online courses for credit and non-credit.

Credit or Non-credit?

As a non-degree seeking student, you may take a selection of Naropa online courses either for credit or non-credit:
 
  1. Credit: You may receive academic credit for Naropa Online classes, even if you have not been admitted to a degree program through Naropa University. There is no admissions process necessary, and you need not supply transcripts. However you may be asked to obtain instructor approval on all courses with prerequisites or specific requirments. Some courses are offered for undergraduate level or graduate level credit. Please choose carefully as students may not change their level after the drop/add period ends. We strongly recommend that you check with your school if you are planning to transfer any credits.
  2. Non-credit: As a noncredit student, you will not receive a grade or academic credit for your work in the online class. Your Naropa University Transcript will not indicate that you have taken a class. And there is no way to "upgrade" the non-credit status later, so please choose carefully. Because non-credit students are not graded, you may determine your own level of participation in the class.
