Attend Naropa as a Non-Degree Student
Online Classes (Distance Learning)
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. Each semester non-degree students may take a maximum of 11 undergraduate credits or 8 graduate credits.
