What if I need to withdraw from classes, drop a class or get an incomplete grade?  What if I miss the drop deadline?

Unless the campus suspends operations entirely, students are expected to complete their classes. CU Anschutz plans to continue operations with as little disruption to courses as possible.

Students who wish to drop individual classes must do so by the 10th week of the semester. If you miss a drop deadline as a result of extenuating circumstances (e.g., hospitalization), you may petition the dean’s office of your college or school for a late withdrawal.

·         At the discretion of the course instructor and/or the academic dean's office, students who have satisfactorily completed a substantial amount of work for a given class but are unable to complete the class due to reasons beyond their control may request an Incomplete Grade. This provides an extension of time beyond the semester to complete the work and receive a grade. See the CU Anschutz Incomplete Policy.

 If I withdraw from classes at this point, is the University offering any type of refund for Tuition and Fees?

There will not be any adjustments to Tuition and Fees. Students are encouraged to work with their professor if they need additional accommodations to complete their course.

 What happens to my financial aid if I withdraw from classes?

We encourage you to continue your coursework in order to minimize academic disruption and any negative impacts to your financial aid. If you’re considering withdrawing from courses, your financial aid may be reduced or cancelled, so we recommend speaking with a financial aid counselor before making that decision.

 Are there any changes to Tuition and Fees now that traditional classes are being taught remotely?

There will not be any adjustments to Tuition and Fees while classes are being taught remotely.

 When is my payment due?

Please review our Anschutz Billing Calendar or billing and due dates.

 How do I pay my bill?

·         UCDAccess portal

·         By mail (processing may be delayed)

 What happens if I cannot pay my bill as a result of COVID-19 issues?

We offer a couple ways to submit payment without physically coming to the office. While the expectation is that most accounts will be paid online or by mail, we recognize the added difficulty of the current situation.

The University of Colorado Denver | Anschutz Medical Campus will be temporarily suspending the assessment of late fees and service charges for the months of April and May 2020.

We will revisit this temporary policy change periodically throughout the current health pandemic, and will post any potential extensions of this temporary policy change accordingly.

 Will I still get my financial aid refund?

Yes.  We recommend setting up Direct Deposit, as direct deposit refunds are processed more frequently than paper refunds. Refund processes may be disrupted, with mailing and banking issues preventing consistent delivery of funds.

 How can I appeal my Tuition and Fees?

If you feel that you have an extenuating circumstance that justifies an exception to financial obligations, you can appeal and it will be reviewed by the tuition appeals coordinator.  See the CU Anschutz tuition appeals policy and guidelines.

COVID-19 guidance from the CDC: Mildly ill patients should be encouraged to stay home and contact their healthcare provider by phone for guidance about clinical management.

· ILL is unable to borrow books/print volumes from other libraries at this time. Prospector is down, most libraries are not lending print materials by courier/mail, and we are not on-site to handle mail delivery;

· ILLiad is the interlibrary loan system for students, staff, and faculty: ILLiad login here
