Evening Credit Spring 2022 Program Changes

Programs: CE Evening Credit

We are proud to continue to offer you a variety of class formats to help you earn credit on your schedule. 

This spring, CE Evening Credit courses return with expanded options to advance your degree. Some of our spring 2022 evening courses will be offered in remote and hybrid formats in addition to the traditional fully in-person courses. Please read the course description carefully to determine if your course is a classroom-online hybrid or remote offering. 

To find what format a course is offered in, follow the steps below: 

  1. Go to the CU Boulder Class Search
  2. Select “Spring 2022” under Term 
  3. Under Advanced Search, select “CE Evening 10 Weeks” or “CE Evening Full Session” under the Session section
  4. Click Search Classes
  5. Select the class you are interested in. “Instruction Mode” will be listed for each course and you will see Hybrid Remote/Online, In Person, or Hybrid InPrsn/OL-Remote

Note: You can also search for specific course formats by using the Instruction Mode selector under Advanced Search 

If you are interested in taking classes in the evening, take time to understand the course’s instruction mode and if its format is right for you and your goals. 

For students that have never taken remote, online, and hybrid courses, read on for our top tips and resources for navigating your coursework.

Online Learning

Time and Place: Treat online classes like any other class

  • Plan to work on your class according to a set schedule (e.g., MWF 9:00am-11:30am). Consider maintaining a similar schedule to the spring schedule you have already established.
  • Put all deadlines for the remainder of the semester in your calendar. This is always a good practice, but may be more useful now that you don’t have an instructor offering the normal in-person prompts.
  • Have a designated place where you work on your class (e.g., specific rooms in your home, a comfortable outdoor space, anywhere that is noise and distraction-free)
  • Get dressed like you would to go to class
  • Try not to work on the class too late at night
  • Never work on your course work in bed
  • Remember that specific dates/times for assignment deadlines are all in Mountain Time. You can change your default time zone within Canvas so your assignment due dates will be accurate regardless of where you are in the world.
  • Seek external accountability. Set up regular check-ins with academic coach, advisor, tutor, friend, parent to celebrate your successes and help you meet your deadlines.

Continue to utilize resources available on campus

  • Talk to faculty
    • All instructors are encouraged to have virtual office hours.
  • Online Composition Hub
    • The online equivalent to the Writing Center
  • Create study groups either virtually or in person
    • Zoom is a great resource for this
  • Reach out to your advisor
    • Advisors are still available remotely during this time.
  • Utilize Disability Services Accommodations
    • Talk to Disability Services about how your accommodations apply in this new format.
    • Keep lines of communication open with faculty.
  • Utilize Counseling and Psychiatric Services (CAPS)
    • 303-492-2277 (24/7 support)
  • Tutoring
    • If you have already established a tutoring relationship, ask if your tutor will work with you via Zoom.
    • Consider increasing your contact for more regular check-ins.
    • If you are enrolled in an online Continuing Education course, free tutoring is available via Thinking Storm. Look for a link embedded in your Canvas course.

Now that you’ve selected your favorite Continuing Education courses, email or print the information, including class number, to more easily search Buff Portal and enroll. Still have questions? Contact an advisor.
