North Dakota State College of Science announced today that it will continue to utilize distance and online learning methods for summer classes offered during the first four-week session from June 2-26 and for the full summer session, which will take place from June 2 through July 24. The College plans to offer a limited number of face-to-face classes during its second four-week summer session from June 29 through July 24.
NDSCS has also created a Technical Skills Session, which is scheduled to take place from August 3-21. This three-week on-site instructional period will provide an opportunity for selected academic departments to schedule intensive hands-on sessions so students may receive technical instruction that was missed during the Spring 2020 semester due to COVID-19. Students will work with their course instructors to determine if this option is available to them.
“I applaud the faculty for the creative solutions they have identified to continue to provide state-of-the-art instruction during this unprecedented time,” said NDSCS President John Richman. “The creation of a Technical Skills Session is a great example of the innovation our entire NDSCS team has demonstrated to ensure students receive necessary hands-on learning.”
