The classroom experience

All students, faculty, and staff are required to wear face coverings in all campus facilities, unless in their own room or office. Students can anticipate smaller class sizes with faculty teaching behind either plexiglass or face shields. All classrooms have also been measured to ensure all students and faculty can maintain at least six feet distance.

You will also find that all shared space—classrooms, conference rooms, large meeting areas, elevators, etc.—will include maximum capacity signs to ensure we limit the amount of bodies that occupy those spaces. Additionally, designated traffic flow patterns are implemented in academic buildings. Please follow the signs to ensure appropriate and safe hallway traffic flow.

Most on-campus courses are offered in a hybrid format, which means part of the class will be held in person and part will be online. ALL campus course sessions will be recorded for students. Some traditionally on-campus courses will be offered fully online. In the event a student or faculty member is unable to attend class in person due to illness or COVID-19 isolation protocol, coursework will be accessible remotely and conveniently for all.

All faculty, staff, and students are required to self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms and exposure before arriving on campus or leaving dorm rooms. Please use the LiveSafe app to complete the Daily Health Check. Students must display the app results before entering buildings/classrooms. You can download it in the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Don’t have a smartphone? Click here to access the desktop version.

As a reminder, CSU modified the Fall 2020 Academic Calendar to minimize risk of additional waves of COVID-19 cases. The accelerated schedule begins earlier (August 19) and provides a seven-week winter break. Please review the updated calendar here.
