CSU Announces Tuition Freeze, Shift to Remote Learning For Finals
CSU President Joyce McConnell announced big news on Friday (May 29) regarding the upcoming 2020-2021 school year: students will be back for the fall semester, and yes, they'll be able to see their teachers and classmates again in-person.
McConnell also announced a proposed tuition freeze, meaning CSU will not raise tuition for the 2020-2021 school year, pending approval from the CSU Board of Governors.
The proposal is organized by a system that McConnell describes as a "comprehensive wellness framework", according to The Source. This framework includes students returning to face-to-face instruction while also facilitating remote learning if certain individuals require it. The system also includes rigorous cleaning and sanitizing practices, self-monitoring for professors and on-campus workers, and an increase of testing at Colorado State's federally certified laboratories.
Along with these measures, while students can return to in-person learning, the final two weeks of classes will be delivered virtually, and "residence halls will remain open during and after Fall Break for students who need to remain or return."
