Flexible learning continues through spring semester

Friday April 17, 2020

Greetings NWTC Students,

Yesterday, Governor Evers extended the Safer at Home Order to May 26, 2020.  Of course, this is disappointing news, but your health and safety are our top priority. This email explains what this means for you as an NWTC student. 

Campus facilities remain closed to students and the general public 

The Governor’s order does not allow for students to be on campus. All NWTC campus facilities remain closed to students and the general public until the end of the emergency order or until notified otherwise. Please stay home and follow the emergency order. 

Update on Courses 

NWTC will continue with its plans to offer courses in an online and flexible learning format through the rest of the spring semester. Your courses will continue to be offered in the same mode that they are currently. In a few cases, courses that have lab components may require the student to finish that component on campus when the Stay at Home order has been lifted.  Your instructor will tell you if this is the case.


As a reminder, the Green Bay graduation ceremony has been postponed to June 26, 2020.  Graduation ceremonies will also be held in Marinette and Sturgeon Bay. Those dates and locations will be announced as soon as they are available. 

Please remember to check our webpage for regular updates and resources to help you continue your education. 

I know this announcement will raise a lot of questions for many of you, including how summer courses will be offered. Summer registration is underway, and we encourage you to register now for your summer courses.  We have a variety of courses scheduled, many in all online formats. Be assured we are working on innovative approaches to our summer classes, and we want to make sure you can continue on with your coursework.  We will continue to keep you informed as decisions are made. 

We are so proud of the work you are doing to maintain your coursework during this pandemic. Take good care of yourselves.  


Dr. Jeff Rafn 

NWTC President
