Naropa offers several options that allow non-degree students to participate in the Naropa experience without applying through our Admissions office to be a degree-seeking student. Non-degree students have the opportunity to take Naropa classes for either noncredit or credit, online or on campus.
All non-degree students will register for courses via the Public Registration tab on MyNaropa.
Please see Extended Studies for extensive noncredit course offerings. Please keep in mind that courses taken for noncredit are not graded, will not be recorded in a transcript, receive no academic credit, and cannot be transferred into a degree program. They cannot be converted to credit at any later date. Non-degree students may not audit Naropa classes.
Non-degree students can take many online classes for credit or noncredit. See Distance Learning at Naropa for information including list of classes, FAQ, credit and noncredit options, tuition and fees, demonstration classes, and directions on registering for online classes. Please keep in mind that courses taken for noncredit are not graded, will not be recorded in a transcript, receive no academic credit, and cannot be transferred into a degree program. They cannot be converted to credit at any later date.
Non-degree students seeking credit can register for some Naropa courses on a space-available basis. Please see the schedule of Courses Available to the Public for a complete list. Each semester non-degree students may take a maximum of 11 undergraduate credits or 8 graduate credits. Students wishing to take more credits should apply as visiting students.
All non-degree students will register using our student portal system, MyNaropa. To register, click on the "Public Registration" tab and select the appropriate registration form.
Non-degree students do not pay a registration fee.
Payment in full is due at the time of registration although it will not be processed until admission in the class is confirmed. Payments are accepted in the form of cash, check, and MasterCard/Visa. For questions about tuition and for credit card payments by phone, contact the Coordinator of Student Accounts at 303-546-3554 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Federal financial aid is not available for non-degree students, though some scholarships may be available through Naropa University.
