Returning to UCCS
Returning Stronger Together

Most classes going remote after Thanksgiving

We know that we are beginning a season of holidays that often involve travel and family gatherings. The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our number one priority. With very few exceptions, UCCS will move to remote learning for classes offered on campus after the Thanksgiving holiday to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Protecting Our Campus

Preserving the health and safety of our campus community, including students, faculty, staff and friends of UCCS is at the heart of every decision made. While returning to campus, we will continue to implement and utilize best practices to keep you safe. 

Adaptability in Adversity

With appointed teams staying up-to-date on the latest developments at a state, local and federal level, we will continue to innovate while adapting our academic programming to meet challenges facing our university. 

Supporting our Campus Community

Together, we will persevere through a trying time. As a campus community, we will continue to offer ways to support one another. With support from counseling options, community training and support outlets, we will not lose sight of our shared mission.

What the UCCS fall semester will look like

How UCCS Will Handle Fall
  • A mix of in-person and online classes

    We understand the need to deliver some courses in-person, and we will strive for a mix of in-person and online courses to fuel your success. Our faculty members have been teaching online for years, and our students will receive the same rigorous education.  

  • An in-person experience at UCCS

    Students will have the opportunity to live on campus this fall. While we are taking precautions, we are excited to announce housing assignments in the month of June. We will also provide fall programming, although the mix of programming is yet to be determined. 

  • The health of our campus community is our priority

    Actions in advance of the fall semester are underway and will be updated as the public health situation evolves. 

  • A Return for Faculty and Staff

    If employees can work remotely, they should do so, unless in an area that requires them to be on campus. Employees should work with their direct supervisor and follow vice chancellor guidance.


  • An Important Commitment

    UCCS will continue to identify and promote opportunities to support and enable city and county government, regional health organizations, business, our higher education partners and our veterans to be safe, healthy and successful as we work through COVID-19 impacts – together.
