The Mayville State response to the coronavirus situation continues. Monday, March 23 marked a big day for all of us. This was our first day of offering all classes online. Because of previous innovation and work done by our faculty and staff, I believe that Mayville State was well-equipped to make this transition to remote course instruction. I appreciate the patience and understanding of our faculty, staff, and students as we continue to work out the kinks and make this the best possible solution for earning a college education while being safe and healthy in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. I am confident that our dedication to personal service will make us shine during these times of uncertainty.
With the health and well-being of students, faculty, and staff as top priorities, Mayville State University will extend its decision to move to online and distance class instruction through the end of the spring semester of 2020.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) situation continues to evolve rapidly. Our president’s cabinet members and emergency manager are in constant communication about how we can best protect the health and wellness of the campus community and take proactive steps to help minimize the spread of this very serious illness.
