What is a Summer-Only Student?
Students attending summer session who do not plan to complete a degree at Colorado State are classified as summer-only students. Courses for summer-only students are offered on-campus, online, or through a combination of on-campus and online delivery.
Choose one of the two processes outlined below according to the type of course delivery you are seeking:
1. Online Only
Summer-Only students wanting to take only online summer course(s) — no on-campus courses — do not need to apply for admission, and can register through CSU Online.
2. Campus Courses (with or without online courses):
Summer-Only students wanting to register for any on-campus summer course(s) must first complete the Non-Degree Summer-Only application.
- The Summer-Only application is free.
- Once admitted, students create an eID, then register through RAMweb.
Graduate level courses:
If you are interested in taking graduate-level course as a non-degree student before applying for graduate admission, be sure to see guidance from the academic department(s) you are considering first.
Students not currently enrolled at CSU must apply for admission to CSU as a degree-seeking student.
