Contact the Center for Individualized Learning (AD 360, 303-615-0525) and request a registration form. You may also download the form from this website at Lifelong Learning-Metro Meritus.
On the first day of class you should attend the course and ask the instructor if you may audit the course through the Metro Meritus program. If the course is available, the instructor will sign the registration form. Return the signed form to our office in the Administration building at 1201 5th Street, Suite 360. You can also fax your registration to 720-778-5702. Please note that the sooner you submit your form, the sooner you will have access to the BlackBoard Learn system.
