Other Ways of Attending Naropa
Visiting Student Program
This program is for undergraduate students who would like to spend a semester or year
at Naropa as full-time students. To study at Naropa University as a visiting student
for longer than one year, the student must reapply. Visiting students must apply for
admission using the visiting student application. They will work with an academic
advisor to choose classes and work out details between the two educational institutions.
Consortium agreements may be created to allow an exchange of some financial aid. This
program is for full-time students only. A visiting student may apply to become a degree-seeking
student at Naropa after spending a semester or year as a visiting student. Application
materials from the previous application may be used, and no additional fee is required.
Part-Time, Nondegree Student
The part-time, nondegree student program allows an individual to take Naropa classes for credit as a nonmatriculated student. Part-time, nondegree students need not apply through the Office of Admissions. Students with part-time status may register for 0.5 to 11.5 undergraduate credits per semester or 0.5 to 8.5 graduate credits per semester. Those wishing to take more credits must apply through the Visiting Student Program. Courses are only open to the public on a space-available basis, and not all classes are open to the public.

Naropa Online Campus
Naropa Distance Learning offers a variety of courses and low-residency degree programs from the heart of its curriculum, translated for interactive delivery over the Internet by Naropa faculty. The dynamic online learning communities utilize the latest available technology to allow students to complete course material with a minimum of technological needs. Students interact with other students and the instructor through a variety of means, including message boards, a journal feature, chat rooms, and a document-sharing page. Students use password-protected web pages to access printed lectures, audio and video lectures, message boards, and online discussion areas. The classes are not self-paced; students progress with the instructor and other students throughout the traditional semester dates. Graduate and undergraduate classes are available. Students should expect to spend between six and ten hours per week during the semester to complete each class.
