Public Health Emergency Notification

In response to a public health emergency, the University may take any action in order to comply with any law, executive order, public health emergency order, and/or public health guidelines or recommendations, including without limitation temporarily closing or limiting access to campus and campus facilities, such as classrooms, offices, and on-campus housing, as well as temporarily closing or modifying university operations and modifying the method of academic instruction from in-person to remote or online instruction, or such other academic modifications as may be reasonable, practicable and necessary in response to a public health emergency. 

In order to help protect the health and safety of the campus community and minimize disruption to the normal conduct and operations of the university, all students are required to comply with all university policies, procedures, protocols, directives and guidelines, including those relating to public health emergencies (“Public Health Emergency Rules”). The Public Health Emergency Rules may be updated, supplemented, or modified by the university at any time and for any reason, including but not limited to, complying with revised executive orders, public health orders or public health guidelines. Although the University takes reasonable steps to minimize risks to public health, the University cannot and does not guarantee protection from illness or complications that may result from illness. Students are responsible for educating themselves regarding all potential risks associated with a contagious disease and/or any other public health emergency and are required to take all necessary and reasonable steps to protect their health against contagious diseases and/or public health emergencies. Students voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to contagious diseases and/or public health emergencies. 

Tuition and fees for any academic year are approved by the Board of Governors of the Colorado State University System and are posted by the university. Students are advised that, in response to a public health emergency or potential public health emergency, some or all instruction for all or part of any particular academic year may be delivered remotely. Tuition and fees have been set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely, in whole or in part, for any part of the academic year.
