Dordt Moving To Online Classes After Thanksgiving Break

Sioux Center, Iowa — Dordt University in Sioux Center has changed its plans for the fall semester. Face-to-face, in-person classes will end Tuesday, November 24th.

Classes will resume online Monday, November 30th, with finals taking place online between December 8th and December 11th. Dordt’s president says leaving campus and traveling over Thanksgiving break increases the likelihood that students and employees will come in contact with Covid-19 and, with only two weeks left in the semester, returning to campus also increases the risk students will need to isolate during one of the busiest, most stressful time in their semester. He says this is the safest course of action for the students and the community’s well-being.

The first day of classes for the spring semester will be Thursday, January 14th, then in late January, Dordt University officials will announce their plans to spring break and Easter. Commencement will be held Friday, May 7th.
