The College may cancel a class before the start of a term due to low enrollment or for other reasons. Students will not be obligated for tuition and fees of courses that have been cancelled. The College will notify students when a decision has been made to cancel a class; however, students are encouraged to confirm their class schedules utilizing eServices prior to the term start and to replace lost credits in the event their schedule has been reduced. This may be important especially to students who are required to maintain a certain credit level to maintain financial aid, loan deferment or other eligibility.
Class meetings may be cancelled because of weather or other unforeseen circumstances or because of an instructor's illness, emergency, or professional development activities. When absences are known in advance, instructors will notify students during class periods and may give alternate assignments. For unplanned absences, a notification will be posted on Desire2Learn and on the Normandale home page under Events>Class Cancellations. Students can sign up to receive notices of class cancellations via email and/or text alert. To sign up, log in to student eservices, select "My Profile" from the upper right corner of the screen, then click"Turn text messaging On or Off" and follow the on-screen prompts.
Students may call 952-358-8300 after 7:30 a.m. and throughout the day for an updated recorded message of cancelled classes.
