Coronavirus Update April 9: Summer session update

Current Coronavirus (COVID-19) Situation - UCCS Update #15 (11:30 a.m. April 9, 2020)

I want to thank our students, faculty and staff, who have been able to accommodate the move to remote learning for the rest of the spring semester to support the health of our campus and broader community. We appreciate your patience as we work to ensure access to complete your coursework. 
 
As you make your plans for summer session, it has been decided that all summer courses will be held in a remote environment, with the exception of internship, clinical and field placement classes. Those may be offered in person if safe host locations are available.

Unfortunately, this means that some classes may no longer be offered this summer. Colleges and faculty will determine if a specific course can be taught effectively in a remote manner. The faculty will work with the Registrar's Office to update the course availability as those decisions are made. We expect it will be a limited number.

Students can register for summer classes now in their MyUCCS portal, knowing those courses listed as meeting in person will transition to remote by the Registrar soon. If a class is ultimately canceled, you will receive notification and not be charged for that course. Registration deadlines for the summer session are available at uccs.edu/registrar/course-deadlines/summer-2020.

This decision does not impact remote working status, which is scheduled to end May 15. Faculty, staff and student employees can expect to receive additional guidance on remote working as we approach that date.

UCCS is planning for fall semester courses to meet normally on campus beginning August 24. Your Academic Advisor can assist you with selecting your classes for both summer and fall.  
 
Know that our faculty and staff are here to support you during this time. Please continue to visit covid19.uccs.edu for additional information on campus operations and resources as they are made available.
