The colleges and universities of Minnesota State who are currently on Spring Break are suspending classes March 16 to March 22 with classes resuming March 23. The five colleges that have Spring Break scheduled during the week of March 16 to 20 are suspending classes March 23 to 29 with classes resuming March 30. While there will be no classes during each campuses’ extra week, all administrators, faculty, and staff will report to work as usual so plans can be developed to teach classes using alternative modes of delivery and adjust campus learning spaces to ensure the safety of our communities.


All campuses, including residence halls, dining facilities, and student support services will remain open and appropriately staffed.


Minnesota State has canceled all gatherings and events totaling more than 100 attendees until May 1, and has suspended all out-of-state Minnesota State-related travel for faculty and staff, effective Monday, March 16. International travel related to Minnesota State, including study abroad programs and any other activities involving faculty, staff, and students, had previously been suspended.


Students should be in touch with their institutions and instructors for specific details on their course delivery methods before classes resume.
