UND will continue offering in-person and online classes throughout semester.
UND has been monitoring our COVID-19 response closely, and we are pleased with the efforts of our UND Community working together to test, isolate and/or quarantine as necessary, and practicing COVID-19 safe behaviors. Because of this and its impact in reducing the number of positive cases, the University has decided we will continue in our current hybrid mode (offering both on campus and on line classes) after the Thanksgiving holiday.
All UND finals will be online only.
Commencement will again be held virtually because of the risk level assigned to Grand Forks County by the state. UND's Winter virtual commencement ceremony will take place on Friday, Dec. 18.
Free testing is available for UND students, faculty, staff, and affiliates. All UND students who take part in testing events will receive a voucher for use at a local establishment.
How Classes are Offered
We developed a flexible Healthy Hawks framework to offer in-person instruction – with options for online learning. Faculty have the option to request to move their course(s) online at any time by following an approval process. Every Monday, we update data showing the number of online vs. face-to-face/hybrid classes.
Required COVID-19 Training
All on-campus students, faculty and staff are required to complete COVID-19 training. This training provides a high-level overview of how we can work to support the health and safety of our campus community and prevent the spread of COVID-19. It will take approximately 40-45 minutes to complete, including a 10-question learning assessment.

Take the survey to help us answer these questions: How does virtual learning compare to in-person courses? How often do students gather with people they do not live with? Has COVID affected students’ finances?
Announcements on COVID-19
