Metro Meritus Participants


The MSU Denver Metro Meritus program allows persons aged 60 years or older to participate for free in courses offered by the University on a non-credit basis. Most courses are eligible for this program based on the approval of the instructor and the availability of space. For more information on which types of courses are eligible and instructions on applying for the program, please see our Resources.

The university has instituted COVID-19 guidelines for mask wearing on campus. Since the pandemic is creating evolving situations, please check these guidelines periodically for updates.

The Metro Meritus program will resume for the fall 2021 semester. This fall participants will again be able to attend courses on campus as well as online and hybrid courses. At this time online and hybrid courses will be available through the 2021-2022 academic year only. Continued access for Metro Meritus participants to attend online and hybrid learning will be evaluated at the end of the 2022 academic year. Access to online and hybrid learning has been allowed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The first day of class for spring 2022 is Tuesday, January 18, 2022. The last day to submit enrollment forms for spring is Wednesday, February 2, 2022.

Please contact the program coordinator, Susan Heath, at [email protected], regarding enrollment questions.

Metro Meritus Stakeholder Information

Are you a Metro Meritus Stakeholder?

Metro Meritus participants interface with many different departments across campus, just as regular paying students. Metro Meritus participants are auditors, who do not pay tuition and fees. Therefore, they may not have access to the same university services as regular paying students, or they may have different access to university services. Please review our Metro Meritus Stakeholder Information for guidance regarding Metro Meritus participants. You can contact the program coordinator, Susan Heath, if you have any questions or concerns at 303-615-0525 or email: [email protected].
