As previewed in the message from campus leaders on Feb. 24, CU Boulder will move forward with a more comprehensive on-campus experience this fall. Based on the latest pandemic projections and anticipated vaccine availability and uptake in our community, the goal is to offer the majority of courses in person.

To allow campus experts time to make recommendations for expanded classroom capacities, which will impact the fall 2021 schedule of classes, a few key fall registration dates have been modified on the academic calendar, including:

  • The schedule of classes and students’ assigned enrollment dates will now be available on Monday, March 29.
  • Registration will begin for degree-seeking continuing students by assignment on Monday, April 5. 
  • Summer 2021 registration dates are unaffected. The schedule of summer classes has already been posted in CU Boulder Class Search, and registration still begins Wednesday, March 3, as planned.

There is now just one week between the schedule of fall 2021 classes posting and the start of registration. Students are encouraged to start meeting with their advisors prior to the start of fall enrollment. 

“Our goal is to safely maximize in-person instruction and interaction for the benefit of our students,” said CU Boulder Provost Russell Moore. “We've learned from COVID-19. We're taking this time to bring back the best of the in-person experience—with continued health and safety measures in place—and to continue the best of remote, online and hybrid teaching methods as well." 

More updates on fall plans will be announced later this month as the campus continues to work closely with the state and with public health officials, Moore said.
