Summer 2024 – Fall 2024 Enrollment for CE Online Flexible Courses

Students may enroll in summer 2024 CE Online Flexible courses starting on May 13, 2024.

Students may enroll in fall 2024 CE Online Flexible courses starting on August 26, 2024.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Enrollment Services at ceregistration@colorado.edu or 303-492-5148.

CE Online Flexible Courses Time Limits and Deadlines

You must complete a CE Online Flexible course within 6 months of your enrollment date. You will not be notified when your CE Online Flexible course is about to expire, and it is your responsibility to keep track of your course expiration 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 submitted and the final examination completed at least 5 weeks before you need the credit on a transcript. Please remember that your instructor is working with many other students. Typically only 1 unit of work may be submitted during a 1-week period. The instructor must approve work being completed at an accelerated pace and usually will not be able to accommodate requests to accelerate the grading process.

Deadlines to Change Status in CE Online Flexible Courses

Students in CE Online Flexible courses have 40 days from registration to take any of the following actions:

  • Change the grading basis from a letter grade to pass/fail
  • Drop a CE Online Flexible course in Buff Portal and receive a full tuition refund without any mark on your transcript. If the 40 days falls between two terms you won’t be able to drop yourself. Please email cerecords@colorado.edu for help.

Beginning Spring 2022, grade replacement is applied automatically at the end of each term for eligible courses and students. Learn more about grade replacement.

Dropping a CE Online Flexible Course

After 40 days of enrollment in your CE Online Flexible course, student can take the following actions:

  • You may submit the CE Online Flexible Withdrawal Form to formally withdraw from the class.
  • If you do not complete your course within the 6-month time limit, you must formally withdraw before a final grade is posted to receive a W on your transcript. If you do not withdraw before a final grade is posted, you will receive an F.

Extensions for CE Online Flexible Courses

If you have at least 50% of the coursework submitted by your completion deadline and documentation of extenuating circumstances, you may file a petition for a two-month extension. The Petition Committee uses the same standards as the main campus and will contact the course instructor for approval prior to granting or denying your petition.

Contact cewww@colorado.edu for more information or to get your questions answered.

If you are a Continuing Education student with a dismissal hold you wish to petition, please schedule an appointment with an academic advisor.

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.
