Mandatory Title IX Training

Beginning fall 2016, Minnesota law requires that all students complete Title IX Training. Title IX states that: No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. This online training, which includes a quiz at the end, will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. After you receive a passing grade on the quiz, a message of completion will be sent to the Dean of Students. You can find the link to the training here: dunwoody.edu/students/title-ix. Please note this training is mandatory and must be completed before Aug 22. For questions, contact Dean of Students Kelli Sattler at ksattler@dunwoody.edu or 612.381.3437.

How does Parking work at Dunwoody?

Parking is free for all students. You can pick up your permit at any point before the semester begins.

Where can I eat while on campus?

Our dining partner, Taher Café, provides a wide variety of home cooked breakfast and lunch options on a daily basis. Learn more about them on the Taher Café website.

How does Registration Work at Dunwoody?

The Registrar’s Office processes registration for students once they are accepted to Dunwoody. The College uses a cohort model of registration: all students in the same program and same term start are registered together for upcoming required classes. It also ensures that students have access to the courses they need and can complete their program in a timely manner. Students are only registered for the courses required by their curriculum. New students will receive a paper copy of their schedule at Orientation and can view their schedule via My.Dunwoody. All registered courses will appear for the student in My.Dunwoody under the Home or Classes tab. All registration questions may be directed to the Registrar’s Office.

Where do you plan to live?

We understand the importance of finding a safe comfortable place to live during your time as a Dunwoody student. Please utilize our 2016-2017 housing guide (PDF download) to help with your search. For questions, please contact Molly, Zac, or Jonathon in Student Services.

Request for Learning Accommodations

We want to ensure that all students have an opportunity to be successful in college. If you require learning accommodations to support you in this endeavor, it is up to you to inform Dunwoody as soon as possible. Please complete the Student Request for Learning Accommodation or Special Need Form (PDF download) and email to:

Kelli Sattler, Dean of Students, at ksattler@dunwoody.edu. Feel free to call 612.381.3437 with questions.

How can I get involved?

While classes can be demanding and schedules can feel full at times, we strongly encourage you to join a student organization, attend a campus program or event, and make this community your new home away from home. For questions about opportunities beyond the classroom please contact Kelli Sattler, Dean of Students, at ksattler@dunwoody.edu or 612.381.3437.

New Student Days

Just prior to the start of the fall and spring semester, Dunwoody hosts New Student Days. The next sessions will take place August 15 – August 18, 2016. During this program, you will meet with instructors and fellow classmates, receive materials for your program and lay the foundation for a successful college career at Dunwoody. This is your day to ask questions, explore the campus, and take care of business before the semester gets rolling. Remember that Dunwoody is about your time both in and out of the classroom. If you are interested in leadership opportunities, members of our Student Government will also be present to answer questions and to identify potential new Association members. You will receive a postcard and an email with the specific days and times. If you have any questions or concerns please email Zac Mans

Celebrate with your classmates

Finally, make sure to connect with us and your fellow classmates on Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter. You are now part of our Dunwoody family. We want to hear from you and support you during this exciting time.
