Auditing at CU Boulder

  • Here’s the link to the community auditors page:
  • It says: Although auditors may attend classes during the first two weeks of the session to ask professors for permission to audit the course and have the enrollment form signed, enrollment will not be official until the auditor submits their enrollment form to Continuing Education (1505 University Avenue) after the last official day to add a course (see the ACCESS Academic Calendar for specific dates). Payment is due at the time of enrollment.
