Ongoing Changes to CE Programs & Services

Spring 2021 Changes

As we prepare for the spring, we want to highlight continuing changes in the way we deliver CE programs and services. These changes are a result of ongoing efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 on campus and beyond. 

Academic Calendar

You will notice several differences in the Spring 2021 academic calendar between various CE programs.

Please note these changes will impact your spring course schedule in several important ways.

    • Spring ACCESS Enrollment is scheduled for Monday, January 11, 2021. This is a departure from our traditional enrollment date and this early enrollment date will only be for the spring.
    • On Friday, January 15, classes will follow a Wednesday class meeting schedule (excludes law). 
    • Spring ACCESS courses, along with main campus courses, will follow a different spring schedule. Two wellness days (February 17 and March 25) will replace the traditional spring break week. Classes will not be held on wellness days, but the university will be open for business.
  • Online Credit and Evening Credit
    • No classes will be held on the two University Wellness days (February 17 and March 25). However, as Online Credit courses are asynchronous, please check your individual course syllabi for specific schedule changes. 
    • Spring Online Credit and Evening Credit courses will end on April 30, 2021.
    • The last day to request a term withdraw from all Session 1 courses is March 11, 2021.  The last day to request a term withdraw from all Session 2, 10-week Session, and Full Session courses is April 23, 2021.

Changes to CE Programs and Course Delivery Formats

  • Evening Credit:
    • All Evening Credit classes, with the exception of ARTS classes, will be delivered remotely. ARTS classes will be held on campus, in-person with some online class sessions.
    • Spring ACCESS Enrollment is scheduled for Monday, January 11, 2021.
  • Applied Music
    • All Applied Music classes, regardless of group or private instruction, will be delivered remotely this spring.
  • Community Auditors:
    • The Community Auditors and Senior Auditors programs are cancelled for Spring 2021. A decision about whether the program is offered in Fall 2021 will be made later this year. Please check back here for the most up-to-date information.

Tuition and Billing

The February 2021 tuition due date has moved from February 5 toFebruary 12. The billing date will be February 16. Late and finance charges will be posted onFebruary 15.

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.
