CU Succeed

Frederick High School has entered into a unique partnership with CU Denver to enable our students to complete challenging university course work and earn college credits through the University of Colorado while still in high school. Courses are taught by Frederick High teachers who have received honorarium faculty appointments from the University of Colorado.

CU Succeed Gold courses are select introductory courses from CU Denver and have the same content as on-campus courses, have the same quantity and quality of work, and are evaluated by the same high standards. These courses are taught here at Frederick and students receive concurrent high school and college credit.

CU Gold courses not only give Frederick High students the opportunity to earn college credits and gain exposure to college level coursework, they can significantly reduce time and expense. While tuition on the CU Denver campus is currently $760 per credit hour (not to mention additional costs in fees and living expenses), the current rate for CU Gold courses is $77 per credit hours (tuition rates set by UCD and are subject to change). We are thrilled by the opportunity to send confident kids off to college having already earned college credits.
