Graduation Advising and Planning

Are you planning to complete a degree or certificate this fall? If so, you’ll need to apply! The priority deadline to apply for Fall graduation is November 1.

Your advisor can help you in this process by:

  • Reviewing your degree audit with you to confirm you’ll complete all requirements.
  • Help you navigate the graduation application process.
  • Answering any transfer questions you may have.

If you are graduating in spring or next year, we’ll also help you make a long term plan.  Schedule an appointment today, or call the Advising, Counseling & Career Center at 952-358-8261.

Campus Cupboard Has Moved To A New Location
The Campus Cupboard and Student Resource Center will be in our new combined location A 1560 until construction is completed the Campus Cupboard will temporarily be offering online pre-ordering as an option for students through our online form . If you prefer we will also have paper order forms at our staffed table outside of A 1560. Stay updated this semester on the Campus Cupboard and Student Resource Center through our websites.

Please bring your own mask to campus 

As of Tuesday, September 7, we will require anyone entering a campus building to provide and wear their own mask. Any individual who does not have a mask will not be permitted in a campus facility. At the start of the semester, we offered disposable masks as a backup measure. The extraordinary rate of mask distribution and use of disposable masks is unsustainable for us, as these are limited in availability. Please help us keep campus safe by arriving wearing your mask and following our mask wearing requirements.

If you have questions about the college’s mask requirements please contact the Dean of Students at

Laptop Application Now Open
We want you to succeed! Normandale has a limited amount of laptops available for students. To be eligible, students must apply and meet eligibility criteria in order to receive a laptop and not all students will be selected.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis. Once you complete the application, you will receive a confirmation email to your Normandale email account to verify your application was properly submitted. Staff will review all applications and notify all applicants of their acceptance/denial status.

Please email with questions with the subject line: Laptop Application.
