Access to your academic records requires the use of an eID. If you have not yet created an eID, go to eid.colostate.edu and choose “Register for Your eID”. Record your eID (eName and ePassword) where you can find it whenever you need to register or change your schedule. To protect the security of your records, do not disclose your eID to others.
Summer Policies & Procedures
In order to communicate quickly and effectively with students, the University requires each enrolled student to provide an e-mail address and a current postal mailing address.
Your address is essential for registration and other University activities. You are responsible for maintaining a mailing address, even during the summer. To change your mailing address, access the RAMweb Menu and select “Records/Manage Student Record”. Next, use the “Address” link to access and update your information.
All summer registration will be accomplished by using the RAMweb student system which can be accessed by logging in at ramweb.colostate.edu.
Registration System Operating Hours
The registration system operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
No written confirmation of your registration selection will be mailed to you. However, you may log-on to RAMweb at any time to view or print your selection of courses.
Holds (financial, scholastic, etc.) may be placed on your registration by academic or administrative offices which prevent your use of the registration system. These holds will be displayed on your RAMweb homepage.
- Contact the offices listed on the holds to clear them before any registration deadlines.
- If you need to drop or withdraw from a course, but have a hold which prevents you from using the system, please contact the Registrar’s Office at (970) 491-4860 or email email@example.com from your CSU e-mail address by 11:59 pm the day of the deadline.
Advising is not required for Summer Session. However, it is recommended for those who can take advantage of it.
The registration system does not accept registrations for a credit overload. Credit overload requests are made by the student’s major adviser.
- Undergraduate students: Maximum credit load (all summer terms combined) is 18 credits. Requests for an overload of 21 credits or more must also have the student’s department head’s approval.
- Graduate students: Maximum credit load (all summer terms combined) is 15 credits. Requests for an overload of 19 credits or more must also have the Graduate School’s approval.
Dismissed students may attend summer session. If a student enrolls in summer session during the spring semester and is subsequently dismissed after spring semester, neither summer nor fall classes are cancelled; the student will be reinstated for fall semester if they earn a cumulative 2.0 GPA after summer classes.
- If a student’s cumulative GPA is not 2.0 after summer session, the student will be dismissed and all previously scheduled fall semester classes will be cancelled.
- Dismissed students are not eligible for financial aid.
- Dismissed students do have the opportunity to register for GUEST or CSU Online classes for the fall semester.
Call the Center for Advising and Student Achievement (CASA) at (970) 491-7095 to schedule an appointment with an academic adviser to discuss your options after academic dismissal. Learn more
