COVID-19 Campus FAQs

Will classes be in-person for the fall 2021 semester?

We are returning to a traditional, in-person experience at CU Boulder for the fall 2021 semester, with a few continuing precautions. Our fall academic calendar will return to normal, including fall break. Fall semester classes will begin Monday, Aug. 23. Visit our Fall 2021 semester webpage for more information.

Will students be required to have a COVID-19 vaccine before the fall semester?

In support of the university’s commitment to health and safety, CU Boulder will require faculty, staff and students to receive the COVID-19 vaccine before the start of the fall 2021 semester. Visit the COVID-19 Requirements & Process webpage for more information.

Can I receive an official excuse/visit verification form after visiting campus?

Excuse/visit verification forms are only issued when a student attends a formal program, hosted by the Office of Admissions. This includes in-person formalized programs, as well as virtual programs run by the Admissions. If a student decides to come to campus on their own, and/or does a self-guided tour, we are not able to issue excuse/visit verification forms.
