Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, MSU continues to adapt to minimize the exposure and spread of the virus while providing quality instruction. We recognize that it is impossible to completely mitigate the risk of COVID-19. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the entire campus community, employees, and students alike, to minimize the risk of COVID-19 to themselves and others.
This plan outlines the Teaching & Learning COVID Response Plan for the 2021-22 academic year. Revisions will be made as necessary in response to various public health conditions and factors, and guidance from local public health units (Traill District Health Unit, ND Department of Health (NDDoH), North Dakota State Board of Higher Education (SBHE), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Guidelines have been developed to outline key considerations and expectations that would be in effect if the need once again arises to provide students the Comets Choose option. If implemented, Comets Choose 2.0 would provide students the flexibility to determine whether they wish to continue attending their on-campus classes in person or to instead participate online for the designated period.
COVID-19 classroom guidelines for on-campus courses in the Fall Semester of 2021 have been established.
