Strong progress on vaccination requirement compliance
Campuswide vaccine compliance numbers are trending upward rapidly with two weeks until the Sept. 15 deadline, with more than 75% of students and employees reporting their information. Of those who have reported, 95% are vaccinated. If you haven’t yet submitted your information, please do so. Vaccination remains the most effective way to prevent COVID-19 spread and protect yourself and your loved ones.
Those who complete their requirement by the deadline will be entered into a drawing with a chance to win multiple different prizes.
Gameday COVID-19 protocols
Regardless of vaccination status, masks are required to be worn in any indoor space at Folsom Field on gameday, beginning with the season opener on Sept. 3.
At this time, there is no general vaccination requirement for Folsom Field at CU Boulder, however as a campus we are strongly encouraging people to be vaccinated when they come to campus. Unvaccinated guests are strongly encouraged to wear a mask during their entire visit to campus, unless they are actively eating or drinking. All patrons should bring a mask with them to campus.
Student Emergency Fund
The fall 2021 application for the Student Emergency fund is open. The Student Emergency Fund provides support to CU Boulder students experiencing a crisis that could adversely affect their semester. The intent of the funding is to support students experiencing a temporary financial hardship as a result of COVID-19.
The funds are limited and not intended to provide ongoing relief for recurring expenses. Not all applications will be approved, even if a student meets the eligibility criteria.
