Who can register as a Non-Degree student?

  • Any individual who isn't already working toward a degree at Naropa can register to take For-Credit courses as a non-degree seeking student.
  • Registration can be done through the Non-Degree For-Credit Registration Form.
  • Non-Degree students can take up to 11 credits per semester. If you're interested in taking more than 11 credits, you will need to visit the Admissions tab to apply as a Visiting Student.

Can I take any Naropa class I am interested in?

The academic schools within Naropa have designated a certain number of courses that are open to the public. To find said classes, click on the printable Registration Schedules & Catalog link found on MyNaropa homepage. Search for the Courses Available to the Public for Academic Credit.

If you wish to take a course that is not on the list, you'll need to fill out and submit an Addendum to Non-Degree Registration Form. This requires both the instructor and School Director Permission before you fill out the Non-Degree For Credit Registration Form.

What if there is a pre-requisite listed for the class I am interested in?

  • If the class has a pre-requisite or special requirement, the student is responsible with the instructor so they are properly prepared for the course, plus informing the Registration Office of the approval.
  • Students who fail to confirm with the instructor prior to registering run the risk of being dropped from the class and asked to leave the course. Note: Faculty emails can be found under course information using the Course Search link on the MyNaropa homepage.

How will I know if I get into a class?

  • Non-degree For Credit students are added into classes on a space-available basis on the first day of classes.
  • You will be notified via email whether or not you've been registered.
  • If there are no seats available, you won't be registered and your tuition will be refunded if you've pre-payed.
  • You can track enrollment numbers by course by using the Course Search, found on the MyNaropa homepage.
