Anoka Tech, Anoka-Ramsey Ready for Safe Return to Fall Semester Including Tuition Freeze

Anoka-Ramsey Community College and Anoka Technical College are prepared for a safe return to fall semester – starting Aug. 24 – and ready to provide students access to hundreds of high-quality, college courses and programs. In addition, tuition at both schools is frozen for fall semester to remain at the same rate as last year offering one of the most affordable options for higher education in Minnesota.

“Higher education is an investment in your future – that fact remains unchanged,” says Kent Hanson, President of Anoka Tech and Anoka-Ramsey. “Our committed faculty and staff are finding creative ways to engage students in exceptional teaching and learning while prioritizing health and safety, and continuing to offer a robust, flexible course schedule.”

Anoka Tech Course Plan

Anoka Tech serves more than 2,500 students and features career and technical education opportunities for those interested in becoming an essential worker. With curriculum centered on hands-on learning, the college plans to offer some programs completely online this fall, while maintaining the active learning experiences required in technical courses. Other programs will feature online lectures with on-campus, socially-distanced instruction in lab spaces. Anoka Tech will continue to closely adhere to state and federal guidance related to health and safety.

“We remain steadfast in our commitments outlined in our strategic plan including a focus on student success and to foster a vibrant culture that practices equity and inclusion.”

Both colleges offer a wide array of student services for remote and on-campus learning that support student success and strengthen a connected learning community. One example is the opportunity for students to request a computer to be loaned to them to ensure they have full access to the right technology to complete their coursework.

 “I hope you will consider joining us this fall as a student in one of the quality programs that make Anoka-Ramsey and Anoka Tech great places to learn,” says Hanson. “We are ready to serve you.”
