Senior Citizen Visitation Privilege

Per CSU's Senior Citizen Visitation Privilege, citizens age 55 and older may visit Colorado State University resident instruction classes on a space-available basis at no cost.

Adding Senior Citizens to Canvas

If the instructor uses Canvas, the senior citizen can have access to the course in Canvas by following these steps:

  1. The senior citizen gets permission from the instructor and completes the Senior Citizen Class Visitation Request Form
  2. The instructor/department sponsors the senior citizen as an 'associate' to get an eID. That is, the department HR staff creates an "Associate" account for the citizen. Associate HR Info
  3. The citizen goes to https://eid.colostate.edu/ to activate their eID.
  4. The instructor manually adds the citizen's ename as a student in the Canvas course:
    1. In your Canvas course > People > + People > enter the ename, select Student role and section > Next > Add Users > Done.
    2. This will send an email to the senior citizen, inviting them to the class, with a link to Canvas.
