Students, faculty and staff must follow public health protocols and stay at home if they have been exposed or are experiencing symptoms. Two weeks prior to arriving on campus (e.g., two weeks before your move-in date for university housing), students and those helping them move in should monitor for symptoms.
Anyone experiencing symptoms should remain at home until they no longer experience symptoms for 10 days, including the absence of a fever without fever-reducing medications.
Anyone who knows that they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 should also stay at home for 14 days to monitor for symptoms.
Limit your risk of exposure and the risk of exposing others at all times by washing your hands frequently in soap and water for 20 seconds, wearing a mask and staying at least six feet away from others.
For the latest information, visit the University's Pre-semester Public Health Precautions page.
International students: At this time, students arriving from countries outside of the United States must complete a 14-day self-quarantine before classes start. In some cases, you may complete this 14-day period in the housing you plan to live in during the academic year. Contact Housing and Dining Services for more information on campus quarantine housing.
Students who are able should bring a care kit with them for the fall semester. This kit should include:
All students, faculty and staff will be expected to comply with public health guidance and contact tracing, and must sign an acknowledgement form that they will do so.
Courses will be held on campus through fall break as much as social distancing allows. Your specific course format will be identified in RAMweb. After Thanksgiving, the last three weeks of the semester (Nov. 30 - Dec.18) will be delivered entirely online.
All College of Business courses will be provided in one of three models:
The College of Business is prioritizing face-to-face instruction for graduate students. Depending upon class size and classroom availability, students in hybrid classes will alternate between face-to-face and online instruction to ensure social distancing is in place. For example, this may involve half the class having face-to- face learning on Tuesdays and being online on Thursdays, while the other half of the class experiences the reverse.
Regardless of learning format, faculty expectations of students remain the same as they would in a typical semester. For livestreamed/synchronous courses, students are expected to engage in group work, classroom discussions and other faculty-directed experiences as they would if sitting in a classroom. Class recordings will be provided to help with review of materials, but they do not replace synchronous online attendance and participation requirements in the class during the time scheduled.
Students who have a health condition or special circumstance that requires a learning accommodation should notify their professor to determine the most appropriate solution.
All classrooms in Rockwell buildings will be equipped with cameras and microphones. This enhances the learning experience by enabling online students to view and interact with faculty or others in the classroom in real time over platforms such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom. Online students will be able to raise their hand, ask questions and engage with students and faculty in the classrooms.
Classroom capacities have been temporarily reduced following University guidelines based on their size, and most classrooms will accommodate 30 percent - 50 percent of their regular capacity.
Small- and medium-sized courses have been moved into larger classrooms that offer appropriate distance between students. Many graduate courses are considered small- and medium-sized.
Seating availability has been altered to provide students with appropriate space for social distancing. The University is developing additional public health protocols that will be released in August. Faculty expectations for student engagement and attendance remain the same.
Other than using an online platform, classroom expectations remain the same. For livestreaming/synchronous classes, students are expected to participate with their peers in group work, classroom discussions and other faculty-directed experiences as they would if sitting in a classroom.
To facilitate this level of immersion for online students, all classrooms in Rockwell buildings are now equipped with in-classroom cameras and microphones. This technology enables online students to raise their hands, ask questions and engage with other students and faculty in the classrooms over platforms such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom.
Recordings of class sessions are provided as a study aid that enhances review of course materials, not as an alternative to attending and participating in the class at its scheduled time. Should special circumstances such as a health condition prevent you from attending virtually, contact your instructor to receive approval to transition to on-demand attendance from livestreamed attendance. Students can also request reasonable accommodations through CSU’s Student Disability Center.
Visit canvas.colostate.edu/student-support/ for help with common Canvas issues. For College of Business students, technical support is available via email@example.com or at help.biz.colostate.edu.
Please notify your instructor when placed in quarantine to receive access to course materials remotely.
All academic advising will be performed remotely over email or Microsoft Teams through Fall 2020. Contact your program advisor to schedule an appointment:
Because academic advisors are working remotely and away from their desk phones, Microsoft Teams provides voice or video conferencing for advisement. All CSU students can download the Microsoft Teams app free of charge.
Yes. We plan to remain in regular contact with our students via email.
The health of every member of the CSU community is of paramount importance, and the College of Business has modified daily operations to follow social distancing guidelines developed by the University. Classroom capacities have been reduced and individual seats designated for use in order to provide adequate distance between students, faculty and staff. Traffic patterns have been altered for directional movement to adhere to social distancing guidelines. Policies on mask usage have been developed to protect our campus community, and online alternatives to most on-campus activities are available to reduce the number of people on campus and exposure to the virus.
Wearing a face mask or cloth covering is a public health requirement and is required on University grounds. Visit the University’s COVID-19 How To page for additional information on on-campus mask usage.

All students should plan to use their own face coverings. This means that students should pack at least two washable, reusable cloth face coverings. The University will provide coverings to students who do not have their own. You can find more information on face masks on the University's COVID-19 How to page.
Please notify your instructor.
CSU’s refund and tuition adjustment policy will follow the University’s existing regular semester protocols.
