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.

Phase 5 of the MPTC phased reopening plan begins today–and includes a few additional updates:
Additionally, a sixth phase, which addresses public access to Moraine Park facilities, has been added to the College’s reopening plan. While local and state indicators could still impact the timing, the anticipated date for this phase is Jan. 4, 2021. It is, of course, our goal and a priority to fully open to the public when safe to do so.
