Getting back to campus with our Skyhawk family

Whether you’re new to FLC, or you’ve been a Skyhawk for a few years, we can’t wait to be back on campus with you this fall.

In-person classes will begin August 24, and we’re thrilled to feel the buzz of students on campus again. We are offering over 100 online courses, and another 250 remote access courses, but most instruction will be in the usual and traditional format, and campus facilities, including classrooms, labs, and other student services will be open.

Health Awareness Certificate

Part of reopening campus includes supporting the collective effort to keep our community safe. To that end, all members of our Skyhawk community will complete our Health Awareness Certification (HAC) before coming (back) to campus.

Health Fall 2020

While we protect the academic excellence and student experience at FLC, we will also protect your health. In coordination with public health officials, we’ll update you as soon as possible on the following safety measures for the fall:

  • Testing
  • Mask protocols
  • Physical distancing parameters

Guiding Principles

  • All decisions will be informed by recommendations and guidance from the State of Colorado, the Colorado Department of Higher Education, and other local, state, and national public health agencies. 
  • Strategies will seek to create the best educational experience possible for students in the context of COVID-19. 
  • Realizing we can’t eliminate all risk, we will seek to create the safest living and learning environments possible at FLC. 
  • To that end, we will establish and promote a culture of caring and respect within the FLC community and beyond. 
  • We will be adaptable, flexible, and responsive as we navigate a shifting situation. 
  • We will operate transparently and keep the FLC community informed.

Town hall meeting recordings

Get info about coming back to campus this fall straight from FLC leadership in a recording of a town hall meeting attended by students and parents. One meeting is geared toward new students and the other is geared toward current students coming back to campus. Both address questions and concerns about moving in, learning on campus, technology access, and life on campus.
