Visiting students from another college or university who wish to pursue one to three quarters of study at DU and wish to transfer the credit to their home institution may apply as special-status students. This also applies to students seeking coursework for personal interest or personal growth. A student seeking a DU degree should not use a special-status application. Students who have previously earned a bachelor’s degree and wish to take classes should contact the Graduate Studies office to complete a Graduate Special-Status Application.
A special-status student must submit an official statement of good standing or an official transcript sent directly from the last institution attended. Coursework completed as a special-status student may be limited and is not automatically accepted for a degree at the University of Denver. Students wishing to pursue coursework over the summer should register as visiting summer student instead.
