The StayConnected Program is an optional benefits-only program that allows degree-seeking Boulder main campus undergraduate students to access certain benefits during the term they are not registered for courses.
Leaving for a short time but planning to return? Undergraduate degree-seeking students are eligible to return to the University within 1-3 terms (including summer, up to 4 with restrictions) from their last graded semester without readmitting or re-applying through Admissions. Please refer to the Return Chart. Students may leave the University, preserve the enrollment appointment priority and return to the University. For this the StayConnected Program is not required.
Accessible Benefits with the StayConnected Program:
Please note that a copy of the StayConnected application given by the Office of the Registrar, may be required as proof to access benefits with certain departments.
How to Apply: Complete the StayConnected Program application and obtain the required signatures. Complete a withdrawal form first, if enrolled in courses for the semester beginning StayConnected. Mail applications to the address on the form or bring to the Office of the Registrar with a valid photo ID. A $50 Registrar’s administrative fee is required payable only by cash or check made out to the University of Colorado; include the student’s name on the check.

Deadlines: Application can be completed for the StayConnected Program anytime during the allowed time away. The StayConnected application must be received no later than two weeks after the start of classes for the semester you wish to return. We highly recommend that students apply for the StayConnected program as soon as the student has withdrawn and realizes the need for the program. Withdrawal fees will be assessed based on the Refund/Assessment Schedule. To avoid additional fees, have the StayConnected application completed, signed, and submitted at least 12 days prior to the start of the semester and withdraw from classes at/or before that time. If Refund/Assessment Schedule is not followed a $200 fine or full tuition fees may be assessed. For Wardenburg Health Center insurance purposes please file by the first week of school.
This program will end when the student registers for classes. If the student does not register for classes, benefits will end two weeks after the start of classes for the last semester in which they are eligible. To determine the last semester, visit the Registrar’s website at Registrar.Colorado.Edu/Students/withdraw.html and click on the Return Chart.
Returning and registering for classes: This will be through the MyCU online portal. The Office of the Registrar will automatically provide a registration enrollment appointment for the returning semester. An email reminder that the appointment is posted is sent to the official CU email account in October for spring, February for summer and March for fall. Holds may stop registering, so check the account before the registration time.
The $200 Confirmation Deposit: This confirmation deposit (student admission fee) is returned when withdrawing from the University (this is not the fine mentioned above). This confirmation deposit is refunded (unless money is owed) 6-8 weeks after the start of classes for the first fall or spring semester the student is not registered. Bursar’s Office will require the student to re-pay the $200 confirmation deposit after registering for the return semester. Contact the Bursar’s Office at Bursar@Colorado.Edu or 303-492-5381.
Unable to return by the deadline: The student will be discontinued from the University. To return at this point contact the Admissions Office at Apply@Colorado.Edu or 303-492-6301. The two-page readmit application is available online at http://www.colorado.edu/admissions.
