Response Measures

March 23, 2020:

We’re hosting ZOOM (virtual video conferencing) meetings throughout the week of March 23 for students to provide an update on the COVID-19 situation. Students should check their Ridgewater email for dates, times, and the link. NOTE: Attendance is not mandatory. These meetings will be recorded and the links made available following the meetings for anyone who wanted to attend but was unable.

March 18, 2020:

The Minnesota State system has announced the cancellation of all commencement ceremonies, including those scheduled for May at Ridgewater College. Please note that we still plan to complete the delivery of all of spring semester courses by the scheduled end of the term. Additionally, students who fully complete all of their degree requirements this spring will still officially graduate and earn their respective degree, diploma or certificate.
