Dunwoody announces return to normal operations for Fall 2021 Semester

Dunwoody College of Technology is anticipating the return to in-person learning this fall. The Fall 2021 Semester is slated to begin on Monday, August 30, at the College’s Minneapolis campus.

Recent guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health and the Governor’s Office have indicated that resuming normal operations will be possible by the fall semester and planning is under way to ensure the College is ready, safe, and able to welcome students back to campus.

Student and employee safety remains Dunwoody’s top priority, and some continued safety protocols may still be in place when the semester first starts. Those safety protocols will allow the College to resume in-person lectures and labs as well as student support functions and student life activities.

“I am excited that we can welcome more students back to campus this fall,” said President Rich Wagner. “This past year has been challenging. Thanks to the commitment of our staff and faculty, and the determination of our students, we have been able to maintain a hybrid learning structure that provided hands-on labs, as well as virtual lectures and project-based learning opportunities. The new tools and technology we implemented to assist with virtual learning will also continue to benefit our students as we move forward.”

No application fee in April

The College is currently enrolling for the Fall Semester, and Dunwoody will be waiving the application fee for the entire month of April. For current students, registration for the Fall Semester opens on March 29.
