Looking forward to spring semester

Dec. 9, 2020

Dear SNC students,

As the fall semester concludes, we want to acknowledge your dedication and commitment to COVID-19 related policies and procedures. Working together as a community, we were able to safely complete the fall semester. Go Green Knights!

For spring 2021, we will continue to follow the general COVID-19 safety measures that have become second nature to us: Wearing masks, watching our distance and washing our hands. We will continue to keep you informed of any new COVID-19 health and safety information by email as we've done throughout the fall semester.

As you think about your classes for spring, we want to remind you that academic course delivery will remain the same as it was for the fall semester. The variety of classroom formats you might experience include traditional, fully in-person courses and less traditional models of blended learning. You may see hybrid courses that ask students to be face-to-face for part of the scheduled class periods and online for the others; hyflex courses, which allow students to choose each day whether they prefer face-to-face or online participation; or fully online courses, with no expectations of face-to-face interaction (these are designated as On-Line Instruction in KnightLine).

Your physical/mental health and safety remains a top priority at SNC. In the event that you become sick, you may be required to provide documentation of your absence from class. To begin that process:

  • Contact Health Services at 920-403-3266.
  • If you are placed in isolation or quarantine by Health Services, the Office of Academic Success, Support and Accessibility (OASSA) will be notified.
  • OASSA will provide you with an accommodations contract to share with your instructors.
As a reminder, attendance policies are set by faculty members and listed in the course syllabus. In the absence of documentation from OASSA, in all courses that are not designated "On-Line Instruction," virtual delivery is not guaranteed.

If you have any questions regarding your spring schedule, you may contact your advisor, the director of academic advisement (ann.hintz@snc.edu, 920-403-3234), or the registrar’s office (registrar@snc.edu, 920-403-3949).

Finally, let me close by again acknowledging that this wasn't a traditional semester by any means, but I remain so grateful as I've witnessed how, with grace and solidarity, you rose to the challenge. You were key in the success of this semester. We at St. Norbert College are honored to call you fellow Green Knights.

Sincerely,

Dr. Jennifer Bonds-Raacke, Vice President for Academic Affairs
