Rasmussen College is committed to ensuring that your educational journey remains uninterrupted to the greatest extent possible and will continue to provide important updates regarding your academic schedule.
In early June, Rasmussen College released its COVID-19 Preparedness Plan outlining the protocols and precautions that the College would follow to provide a safe and healthy learning and working environment for our students, faculty and staff who attend class, lab or clinicals at one of the College’s physical campuses.
The Preparedness Plan is a living document that is subject to change as we continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and the guidelines set forth by local, state and federal health agencies, as well as the mandates set forth by local, state and federal government agencies.
