Enrollment Services


Established in 1911, the Division of Continuing Education’s mission is to provide quality, innovative lifelong-learning opportunities to diverse student populations by extending the educational resources of the University of Colorado Boulder. Since learning needs are unique and don’t always follow the traditional college student path, Continuing Education offers a variety of programs–from individual courses and degree programs to science education for elementary and secondary students. Continuing Education also provides students with academic advising, enrollment support, financial aid planning and other helpful services.
