As NDMU begins the first stages of reopening the campus, the University will observe the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local guidelines for the safety of all of our community members.
As noted in previous outreach, NDMU will be open for Fall 2020 for its in-person instruction, learning, activities and residential experience.
We recognize that if circumstances, change such as the possibility for a resurgence of COVID-19, we will make necessary adjustments to the plans and schedules outlined below.
NDMU intends to continue its tradition of student centered instruction and excellent student-faculty interactions as we begin this new academic year. All Women’s College courses will be hybrid which allows for flexibility in course design. Faculty will be able to combine in-classroom lectures with online instruction. This hybrid combination helps us maintain social distancing requirements on campus while still insuring effective student learning experiences.
In-person classes will begin August 24, 2020 and continue until November 24, 2020. After Thanksgiving classes will be completed remotely and will end December 3, 2020. Exams are scheduled for December 4-10. By completing in-class instruction before Thanksgiving, and completing course work and exams remotely, we reduce the likelihood of students returning to campus after exposure to COVID-19 while off campus.
The schedule remains as usual with no changes planned at this time for the Fall schedules.
Please see the detailed Academic Calendar.
More details concerning arrangements for all on-campus processes and safety precautions for the return to campus will be forthcoming.
