COVID-19 and Moraine Park

Moraine Park Technical College welcomed students back to campus for the fall 2020 semester beginning Aug. 24. MPTC campuses are open to students and employees but remain closed to the general public. Moraine Park’s spring semester is scheduled to begin as schedule Monday, Jan. 25; classes will continue to be offered in person and in virtual and online formats. 

In compliance with the statewide mandate, face coverings are required at Moraine Park. Face coverings will continue to be required at Moraine Park until at least the end of 2020.

Students who are unable to wear a face covering or mask for medical reasons or due to a disability should connect with Disability Resources to create an accommodation plan. Employees who are unable to wear a face covering or mask will need to connect with Talent Management to discuss accommodation options.
