^ Petitioning is designed to provide students who experience unavoidable, extenuating circumstances, the opportunity to waive a University policy that, if enforced, would result in unsatisfactory academic progress or financial consequences.

Self-paced Online Courses Time Limits and Deadlines

You must complete a self-paced online course within 6 months of your enrollment date.

If you need a grade posted to your transcript by graduation or another specific date, you must give your instructor sufficient time to grade your work. Plan to have all written assignments completed and the final examination completed at least 5 weeks before you need the credit on a transcript. Please remember you are not the only person taking the course. Only 1 unit of work may be submitted during a 1-week period. Permission to work faster must be secured by the supervisor from the instructor/grader.

Dropping a Self-paced Course

You may drop the course and receive a full tuition refund within 40 calendar days of registration without any mark on your transcript. You are allowed one drop/transfer to a different course within 40 calendar days. If you do not complete your course within the time limit, you must formally withdraw before the expiration date to receive a W on your transcript. If you do not withdraw before the expiration date, you will receive an F. You may submit a withdrawal request in writing or send an email to cewww@colorado.edu.

Extensions for Self-paced Courses

You will not be notified when your self-paced course is about to expire, and it is your responsibility to keep track of your course expiration date. Self-paced online courses may be extended for an additional 6 months for an extension fee of $65 per credit hour. Requests for course extensions must be received before the expiration date or within a 40-day grace period for an additional $10 course reinstatement fee. You may submit your request online, mail a written request with a check to the Continuing Education office, or call to extend your course over the phone. Only one extension is allowed.

If you register for an extension, you will be enrolled in a separate extension section of the class. You will receive a grade of “Withdrawal” in the original section of the class and an “Incomplete” on your record in the extension section. The I will be replaced by the letter grade once you complete the course, but the W stays on your transcript.

Students with a Continuing Education Dismissal hold need to have at least 50% of the coursework completed, otherwise their eligibility to receive an extension might be negatively impacted. Students who have completed less than 50% will need to work with an advisor, if they wish to request an exception. Please email ceadvise@colorado.edu with questions.

Petitions for Additional Time

If you do not complete a class before your extension expires due to unavoidable, extenuating circumstances, you may file a petition for additional time to complete the class and you must furnish documentation demonstrating your need for additional time. The petition committee uses the same standards for granting and denying petitions as the main campus.
