Register/Policies

Focus Forward students may enroll and pay for non-credit classes online, by telephone at 303-871-2291, or in person at:

University College
2211 South Josephine Street
Denver, CO 80208

When registering for more than one person, please either register by phone or complete separate online registrations.

Enrollments are filled on a "first come, first served" basis. Auditing a non-credit class in the Focus Forward program is not an option.

Payment for classes is due upon enrollment and may be made by cash, credit card (MasterCard, VISA, American Express, and Discover), or check.

Campus Safety

Students are encouraged to visit www.du.edu/emergency to sign up for automated emergency information which, in addition to receiving important emergency-related notifications, also includes notice of snow/weather closures. Emergency whistles are also available through Campus Safety.

Escorts: Campus Safety offers a walking escort for students who do not want to walk on campus alone after dark. Escorts will walk you to and from any location on campus. To request an escort, call 303-871-2334.

Course Additions, Withdrawals, and Refunds

Because Focus Forward classes are offered in abbreviated scheduling formats, students generally cannot be added to a course after the initial class session. Students may withdraw from the class at any time during the term by contacting the Student Support Center. 100% refunds will be made for those classes dropped at least two business days before the first class period. Students dropping a class after the two-business-days limit will receive no refund.

Course Cancellation

Every attempt is made to deliver all scheduled Focus Forward classes. When extenuating circumstances occur, such as low enrollments or instructor illness, course cancellations may be necessary. When possible, cancellations are made approximately one week in advance of the beginning of the course and students are notified immediately via e-mail or telephone by Student Support Center staff. A full refund will be issued.

Course Discounts

Enroll along with a friend or family member in Planning for Change in the Third Age workshop and both receive $35 off registration!

Register for one of the two course options within the same academic year as Planning for Change in the Third Age workshop and earn a $35 discount.

University of Denver staff, faculty, and alumni receive $35 off each registration.

Note: Only one discount per course.

Course Location

Classroom and building locations are generally provided to students upon registration via a confirmation email. Students can also find their class location by checking the online course listing or by logging into their account and accessing the registered course documents.

Information for Individuals with Disabilities

Students who require accommodations due to a documented disability should contact the Disability Services Program (DSP) at 303-871-2372 upon registration or no later than three weeks prior to the beginning of the term. Students should also notify Student Support Center of their needs at the time of registration.

Parking

The Focus Forward program offers free parking at designated lots. Student registration materials will include detailed information regarding parking. A detailed parking map is available on the DU website at: www.parking.du.edu.

Standards of Conduct

All members of the University of Denver community are entrusted with the responsibility of observing certain ethical codes and values as they relate to the academic integrity and general welfare of the University community. The University expects each student enrolled at the University of Denver to follow the Standards of Conduct in order to promote a safe and civil campus environment.

Textbooks and Course Materials

Waitlists

When Focus Forward classes are filled, a waitlist is maintained. Should space become available during the registration period, students will be notified. The Student Support Center is responsible for maintaining the waitlist.

Weather Policy

In order to support the academic integrity of its courses, University College ensures that every class session is held. Therefore, the university will close only in severe weather conditions. All classes that are canceled due to weather will be rescheduled. Notice of closings will be available via local radio and television stations as well as the DU website.
