Study Tips to Keep Learning Post-Spring Break

Hello RamFam!
As we get closer and closer to Spring Break, we also inch closer to a fully virtual semester for the remaining weeks after Spring Break. In order to help your student Keep Learning, we want to share the resources below that will hopefully act as a reminder of how your student can reach out if they are struggling academically or just need a little help.

TILT offers a range of academic success workshops, as well as video series based on time management, study tips, and success in online courses. All of that and more can be found here: https://tilt.colostate.edu/Learning/TILTWorkShops.

TILT also has a number of tutoring resources available for your student:

S/U grading options are available as well. In Spring and Summer 2021, CSU will allow undergraduate students to elect the Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory (S/U) option in place of a traditional (A-F) letter grade. An S is equivalent to a C or above while a U designates a D or F but does not garner credit or negative impact on GPA. Graduate students should inquire in their own programs of study about use of these options. The SP21 undergraduate S/U grading deadline is Sunday, May 23, at 11:59 p.m. Students who request S/U grading by the deadline will have those grades included in Satisfactory Academic Progress Calculations for financial aid. In addition, CSU will offer the late course withdrawal option without tuition refund for all undergraduate and graduate students. Students may elect to withdraw from individual courses through May 7, the last day of class (prior to final exams). Thereafter, students must use a separate registration appeal process through the Office of the Registrar to seek a withdrawal after final exam week.
