Summer 2021 Campus and Course Information

Most summer 2021 classes at the Community College of Aurora are being offered online/remotely. This decision was made for two main reasons: 1) to allow you to be able to start or continue your education in the safest way possible, and 2) to minimize stress and disruption in your lives. 

The summer and fall class schedule is available. CCA has dozens of in-person and hybrid classes available for summer and fall 2021. 

This page contains information on what the summer semester will look like, what course formats will be offered, CCA’s on-campus health and safety protocols, COVID-19 testing information, and more. It will be updated throughout the summer semester, so please check in when you can for important updates.

April 13, 2021 Update: CCA Preparing for Full Return to Campus

The Community College of Aurora (CCA) is accelerating the transition back to the college’s CentreTech and Lowry campuses this summer and will complete that process fully for the fall 2021 semester.

The transition plan is built on two premises: 1) having employees back on campus will help us to better serve our current and prospective students, and 2) it will be safe to return based on widespread vaccine availability and guidance from local health experts.

Read the CCA Preparing for Full Return to Campus blog for more info on what services are available in person on both the CentreTech and Lowry campus

 

Fall 2021 Classes

Employees will complete their return to campus on August 2 with offices fully open. There may still be adjustments to how classes and other events are offered. Fall classes start on August 23 and the majority of classes will be held on campus.

Most fall classes will be held in-person: 65% of the classes will be fully in-person, 82% will have at least some in-person participation, and 18% will be offered as hyflex and/or hybrid.

Safety and COVID-19 Response

To see a complete list of testing free COVID-19 testing sites in the Tri-County area, visit the Tri-County Health Department website.

If you’re a CCA student or employee and displaying a pandemic contagion or other contagious/infectious disease symptoms, being tested for a pandemic contagion or other contagious/infectious disease or self-quarantining at the direction of a medical professional, or have been knowingly exposed to someone with a pandemic contagion or other contagious/infectious disease symptoms, please fill out CCA’s “COVID-19 Report” form.

CO Exposure Notifications is a free and voluntary service developed in partnership with Google and Apple that can notify users of possible exposure to COVID-19. By opting in, your Android or iPhone device will share anonymous tokens with other CO Exposure Notifications users using your phone’s Bluetooth. If another user you’ve been near tests positive for COVID-19 within a 14-day period, the service will notify you. If you test positive, you can easily and anonymously notify others to stop the spread of COVID-19. Visit the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment website to learn more about the app.

When you’re on campus, please be sure to follow the health and safety protocols outlined below. These requirements are based on guidance from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, the Colorado Department of Higher Education, the Centers for Disease Control, and the Tri-County Health Department. For more information and guidance, please visit the Tri-County Health Department Isolation and Quarantine COVID-19 Fact Sheet page.

Before coming to campus, do a thorough personal assessment and ask yourself these three questions...

  • “Am I displaying any COVID-19 symptoms?”
    • Symptoms include fever above 100.4, tiredness or fatigue, chills, muscle pain, cough, loss of taste or smell, difficulty breathing, headache, and sore throat. If you’re displaying any of these symptoms, please don’t come to campus and instead contact a healthcare provider or the Tri-County Health Department (303-220-9200) for further information and to inquire about COVID-19 testing. You may return to campus only after you are symptom-free and have had a temperature below 100.4 for at least three consecutive days.
  • “Do I have a family member or household member who is displaying COVID-19 symptoms?”
    • If yes, don’t come to campus and instead contact a healthcare provider or the Tri-County Health Department (303-220-9200). Also, be sure to contact the Dean of Students office (303-360-4771) for information and instructions regarding course options.
  • “Have I been knowingly exposed to anyone with COVID-19 in the last two weeks?”
    • If yes, you have three options:
  1. You can come to campus 14 days after your last known date of exposure.
  2. You can wait 10 days after your last known date of exposure and, if you are not exhibiting symptoms, you can come to campus on day 11.
  3. You can wait 5 days after your last known date of exposure, get a COVID test, and if the test is negative, you can come to campus on day 7.
