Spring 2021 Update


What a fall this has been! With the last days of the semester upon us, I want to thank each of you for your continued resilience and fortitude during this time. I have never been more proud of our students, faculty and staff than I am this year. Thank you all for continuing to keep the health and safety of our CityHawk community top of mind.

Looking ahead to the transition from fall to spring semester, I want to share the most current information available:

Finishing the Fall Semester 

  • December 7th is the last day of the fall semester. 
  • December 12th grades will be available on CCDConnect. 
  • CCD is fully closed from December 25, 2020 - January 3, 2021 for winter break.

Looking Ahead to Spring 2021 

  • Registration is open for spring 2021.
  • The Spring first start (15 weeks) begins with remote instruction on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. Spring second start (13 weeks) begins on February 2, 2021. Spring third start (10 weeks) begins on February 23, 2021. Certain programs have multiple start dates throughout the Spring. Visit www.ccd.edu/latestart for specific course information.  
  • Your learning options for in-person, hybrid, and remote instruction are structured to maintain high quality and student and faculty safety of our campus community 
  • You can review all the course learning options and their descriptions at ccd.edu/Learning-Options. 
  • For everyone’s health and safety, the first two weeks of the semester, through January 31, will be fully remote for most classes—regardless of course learning option— and for all student services. 
  • Instructors and students should prepare to be fully remote for at least until February 1, unless you are in welding, machining, or certain health science programs. Students  should look for an email from your program chair or instructor regarding specific class meeting structure for the first two weeks of class.
  • There will be no in-person, on-campus events nor in-person meetings until further notice.
  • Student services will be remote until further notice.
  • For most in-person and hybrid classes, instruction will begin remotely. This will be regularly evaluated based on improvements in health and safety conditions in the City and County of Denver and across the state, and we will communicate any changes in a timely fashion.

As the uncertainty around COVID-19 persists, the health and safety of our campus community is our priority when making these decisions. Our decisions are based on the most current public health orders and Colorado Department of Higher Education guidance.

If you have any questions, please contact the CCD Call Center by phone or text at 303.556.2600.

Wishing you all the best,
