In response to COVID-19, South Dakota’s four technical colleges will move temporarily to an online learning model. Beginning on Monday, March 23, 2020, all classes will be temporarily moved online. On-campus, in-person classes are scheduled to resume on Monday, March 30, 2020.
All four campuses will continue to be closed to the general public until Monday, March 30, 2020.
The shift impacts Lake Area Technical Institute (Watertown), Mitchell Technical Institute (Mitchell), Southeast Technical Institute (Sioux Falls), and Western Dakota Technical Institute (Rapid City).
Because this situation is evolving, leaders from each institution will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 cases in our state, recommendations from the State of South Dakota, and guidance from Centers for Disease Control. We will communicate any updates to our course delivery plan in the coming days.
Individual institutions will be sending additional information to their students, faculty, staff, and community partners. Please refer to their news releases and web sites for more details.
