The GUEST Program (Granting University Enrollment for a Specific Term) allows you to register for on-campus Colorado State University courses as a non-admitted student.

You can register for online courses as a non-admitted student without utilizing the GUEST program. Enrolling through the GUEST program is only necessary when registering for on-campus courses as a non-admitted student.

GUEST students are able to register for on-campus credit courses as well as other on-campus CSU classes on a space-available basis. This registration process is offered through the Office of Admissions.

GUEST Program Highlights

  • Students can register for up to six credits during the fall or spring academic term.
  • Courses are open on a space-available basis to non-admitted students.
  • Processing fees and academic transcripts are not required.
  • All courses are officially transcripted and are reflected on a student's permanent Colorado State University academic record.
  • Career and academic advising is offered.
  • GUEST students are eligible for all campus activities and services included in the payment of student fees (special events, student services, computer lab facilities, etc.).
