AU PAIR EDUCATION OPTIONS
The Education Component for Au Pairs
The U.S. Department of State requires that all au pairs must complete 6 credits (or its equivalent if it is a non-credit course 72-90 hours) at an accredited post-secondary institution over the course of their year. Host families are responsible for contributing up to $500 of this cost. Host families are also responsible for facilitating enrollment, providing time off and transportation, (cost of gas, Uber expense, parking fee’s) so that their au pair can attend these courses.
Here is a list of popular options available to au pairs in the Denver Metro Area AND the WEEKEND COURSES

CHECK OUR MAP
Are you interested in auditing a class?
Are you interested in taking a course for fun? No exams? No homework? Just a chance to learn about something that interests you?
In that case, you may be interested in auditing a course. Auditing a college course involves almost everything required when taking a college class for credit; however, you are not evaluated for class participation, you do not need to complete all of the assignments, you do not receive a final grade, and no academic record is maintained. Courses may be audited without credit with the consent of the instructor and if seats are available. See the MSU Denver South Campus complete course schedule, South Campus Class Schedule
Once you have found a course, complete the Audit/No Credit Registration Form, take it with you the first night of class to request permission from the instructor to audit the class. Once they agree and sign off on the form, proceed to our Student Information Desk, Room LL06, for payment. Once paid, you may go back to class and the instructor will be notified that you have completed the process to audit the class. At the end of the semester (or class if accelerated), you will receive a Certificate of Acknowledgement signed by the instructor.
HOW TO AUDIT A COURSE Students may audit a class with the permission of the instructor and if seating is available. Academic credit is not awarded for an audited course and no academic record is maintained. Students may audit a course at MSU Denver South Campus by completing the Audit Approval Form on page 25 and submitting the form. The cost is $95 per credit hour. For more information visit our website at msudenver.edu/ innovative-lifelong-learning/audit a course or contact the MSU Denver South Campus at 303-721-1313.
Course audits are also available on MSU Denver’s Main Campus. for more information, visit the Office of the Registrar. Please note: The cost for a course audit on the Main campus differs from course audits offered on the South Campus.
