Hello,

I am currently enrolled as a student of the College of Arts and Media at University of Colorado Denver. Within the transitional period of moving all of our classes online and no longer being on-campus courses, there is one part of this that is being overlooked: Money. 

Diving into this, there are so many aspects of this closure that have affected our way to attend classes and get the full experience. I know personally, for CAM students, we pay additional fees to use equipment in the Core, an area of the Arts building that houses multiple recording studios and equipment to record music and other projects. With campus being closed, we cannot use this equipment that we paid for in our tuition and are therefore going to have to change how we are completing projects. 

On top of this specified example, other fees and tuition costs are not going to be used due to the fact that campus is closed. Some of these fees are Student Life fees, Wellness Center fees, and any other extracurricular fees that have been put into our cost of attendance. These fees should be reimbursed to us due to the fact that these programs and buildings are not being used by us students at this time. 

Another fee that is essential to mention is the fee of taking online classes. Before COVID-19 happened, students at CU Denver are paying an additional $100 per class to be online instead of in-person. With the move to all classes online, a reimbursement should be taken into consideration for those who have already payed hundreds additionally to have online classes when everyone is now in online classes. 

This refund would help students to be able to focus on their classes better, knowing that there is money going to help pay rent, buy groceries, and support their families. Not only would getting this refund help with the hundreds of students that have lost their jobs but it would also give a greater reputation with CU Denver and will also engender community and positivity in a darkened time. 

Please sign and share this petition to present to the Registrar, Financial Aid Office, and necessary administrative bodies of CU Denver to support our student body during COVID-19.

Students/Family/Faculty & Staff/Alumni: Please support the University of Colorado Denver's students by signing and sharing this petition!

Stay safe!
