Students are required to use the Symptom Reporter if they experience COVID-19-like symptoms. They must use the reporter as soon as they feel or experience any symptoms.
Anyone experiencing symptoms should remain at home until they no longer experience symptoms for ten 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.
For the latest information, visit the University's Public Health Precautions page.
Students who are able, should bring a care kit with them for the Spring semester. This kit should include:
For the latest information, visit the University's Public Health Precautions page.
All students, faculty and staff will be expected to comply with public health guidance and contact tracing, and must sign an acknowledgment form that they will do so.
Larimer County Public Health is responsible for vaccine distribution to organizations and businesses within the county, including to the university community. The plan for vaccine prioritization and administration to the university community will be communicated to students, faculty and staff soon.
More information about vaccinations for CSU faculty, staff and students can be found on the CSU COVID Information & Resources site.
Courses will be held on campus through spring break as much as social distancing allows. After Spring Break (Apr 12 through 16), the last three weeks of the semester (Apr 30 - May 14) will be delivered entirely online.
All College of Business courses will be provided in one of three formats:
The College of Business is prioritizing face-to-face instruction for first-year students and courses in the All University Core Curriculum. 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 is the reverse.
Regardless of learning format, faculty expectations of students remain the same as they would in a typical semester. For live streamed/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 do not replace synchronous online attendance and participation requirements in the class during the time scheduled.
Students with a health condition or special circumstance that requires a learning accommodation, should notify their instructors 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 a smaller percentage of their regular capacity.
Small- and medium-sized courses have been moved into larger classrooms that offer appropriate distance between students. There are no classrooms anywhere on campus large enough to accommodate social distancing for large class sections, so these will be held exclusively online.
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 Jan. Faculty expectations for student engagement and attendance remain the same.
Other than using an online platform, classroom expectations remain the same. For live streaming/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.

Please notify your instructor when placed in quarantine to receive access to course materials remotely.
Similar to the final weeks of fall semester, access to College of Business facilities will be limited until Jan 25. Students may access the computer lab using their RamID as a keycard only at Rockwell Hall’s east entrance next to the bike racks. All other doors are available only for faculty and staff use.
Regular public access to Rockwell Hall and Rockwell West will be restored on Jan 25. Entry to North Rockwell will still require a keycard and shall be limited to faculty, staff and a handful of MBA students.
The computer lab will be open during the following times:
The health of every member of the CSU community is of paramount importance in Spring 2021, 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 reduce chance of contamination. 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 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 College of Business courses will be offered online, so students who cannot attend may still participate in class sessions on a synchronous live stream of the lecture. In some cases with the approval of instructors, lecture material will also be recorded and available on demand outside scheduled course hours.
Students are asked to purchase their own supply of masks. If you forget your mask and are unable to return home to retrieve it, you can pick up a mask at the help desk in the Bean Counter.
All College of Business lectures will be available as a live stream for students enrolled in the course. Students who have to attend to family needs can still participate in classes and finish the semester even if they must leave Fort Collins.
