Withdrawal deadline quickly approaching

FRCC withdrawal deadline is Saturday, November 20th. Students with a D or F in a college class, need talk to their instructor immediately to determine the chances of passing the semester and if withdrawing is the best option. If so, you must see your Academic Advisor before withdrawing from a course.

Students must pay for a withdrawn course and will see a W on their transcript, but the W will not count in the GPA calculation. Please contact your Academic Advisor with any questions ASAP.
Pass it on!

  • The guidance that our health department follows in determining when students need to be quarantined can be found here.
  • We will continue to encourage hand washing and frequent cleaning of high touch areas.
  • Increased ventilation and use of outdoor spaces will be implemented whenever possible.
  • Any staff or students experiencing symptoms should stay home, this is the most important practice to limit quarantines of students and staff this year. CECFC will follow CDPHE’s updated Return to Learn guidance for determining when students and staff can return to school. Students who are home sick can still access their classes through Microsoft Teams or the community college portal. Students should check course syllabi for requirements regarding absences in each of their courses.
  • Information on the number of positive/probable cases among staff and students will be provided in the weekly newsletter. If your student is in class with a positive/probable case you will be contacted by the school so you are aware of the exposure.
  • CEC’s virtual program is available for any students wishing to learn remotely this year. More information can be found here: CECFC Online Learning.
