PREPARING FOR Fall 2020 and Beyond

Since moving all spring classes online on March 30, Colorado School of Mines has continued to prioritize the learning and academic progress of our students while ensuring the safety and security of all members of our campus community. Mines administrators and academic leaders are actively preparing for the semesters ahead with those same priorities in mind.

While the COVID-19 pandemic will undoubtedly reshape some aspects of the Mines experience in the coming months and academic year, Mines expects to hold classes on campus this fall. There’s more to test, investigate and determine before we know what’s possible and what operational changes will need to be made to accommodate this, but that is the expectation.

Additional details and updates are included below and will be directly and routinely shared with our campus community via Today at Mines and other communications.

  • Summer I courses are being delivered online.
  • 10 Summer II courses will be offered on campus. All other courses will be delivered remotely or online. (Read more.)
