NDMU plans to offer all Women’s college classes in a face to face format for Fall 2021. Adult undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs will be conducted in a mixture of face to face and synchronous (real time) remote learning with a few exceptions.

Please read the full announcement.

What You Need to Know (Updated: June 8, 2021)

  • Face-to-face courses will take place in classroom and lab settings large enough for all students to attend in person while maintaining required social distancing.
  • Students who are unable to attend courses physically due to a health condition will have the ability to seek a medical accommodation, which may include synchronous remote learning. Synchronous remote learning may not be available as an accommodation for required lab courses.
  • In some limited instances, students may also have a course that will be taught solely via synchronous remote instruction. This is not an “online” class that is often delivered asynchronously (not real time), but rather one delivered on a routine date and time, and in real time to all students.

Experiential Education

Clinicals, practicums, and student teaching internship experiences required as a part of a professional program’s curricula will continue in accordance with each Schools’ and host site’s customized procedures and protocols. However, NDMU anticipates that in-person attendance will be the primary modality for professional practicums, clinicals, and internships. In-person experiences will adhere to strict safety precautions. Additional information will be forthcoming from respective Dean’s offices.

In-person service learning, volunteer service, and internships are anticipated to resume, with permission and safety precautions for the fall semester. Semester, yearlong and short-term study abroad will remain suspended.

Classroom Health & Safety

For classes that will be held on campus, the following health and safety measures will be in place:

  • Classrooms will be reconfigured to ensure required social distancing. Desks and workstations will be spaced 6 feet apart.
  • Facemask (or equivalent protection) must be worn during class at all times unless outside and observing proper social distancing.
  • Everyone will be required to complete a daily self-monitoring/symptom screening before entering class.
