What They Are
Beyond the standard 16-week fall and spring semesters, some CU Boulder departments now offer classes during four-, five- and eight-week special sessions:
- 4-Week Sessions 1–4
- 5-Week Sessions 1–3
- 8-Week Sessions 1 & 2
These sessions occur during the regular fall and spring semesters, but because their start and end dates are different than the full-semester classes', their add, drop and withdrawal deadlines also differ.
Changing Your Schedule
Since each session's dates and deadlines are unique, you need to take extra care when making any enrollment changes.
Each session functions as its own semester, so if you drop all of your classes in a given session (even if it's only one class), you've technically withdrawn from that session. Before you drop any classes, carefully review the special session withdrawal calendar in the sidebar.
