Courses Open to the Public

Public Registration

Interested Non-Degree-Seeking students may attend Naropa University through our Extended Studies opportunities. We maintain a selection of courses that are offered to the public for academic credit and for non-credit. Please select the appropriate schedule on our Public Registration page of MyNaropa for a current list of courses.

Offerings vary by semester and seats fill on a first-come, first-serve basis. Many courses require faculty approval and/or prerequisite coursework, so please keep this in mind when selecting a course. Public registration for Fall begins in May and Spring begins in November. We may not have a finalized list of offerings until that time.

In addition to course offerings, Naropa hosts many interesting events throughout the year. We encourage you to check our events page regularly for different ways to get involved.

Naropa Campuses Closed on Friday, March 15, 2024

Due to adverse weather conditions, all Naropa campuses will be closed Friday, March 15, 2024.  All classes that require a physical presence on campus will be canceled. All online and low-residency programs are to meet as scheduled.

Based on the current weather forecast, the Healing with the Ancestors Talk & Breeze of Simplicity program scheduled for Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday will be held as planned.

Staff that do not work remotely or are scheduled to work on campus, can work remotely. Staff that routinely work remotely are expected to continue to do so.
