Winter Weather Policies

Winter can be full of weather surprises, so please remind your student that on days when snow and/or ice is in the forecast, university closings, delayed openings or early dismissal announcements will be made by 6 a.m., and if the University is open for part of the day, announcements regarding afternoon classes will be made by 10 a.m., evening classes by 2 p.m. via the following:

  • Campus-wide e-mail
  • Facebook
  • Area media (radio and TV)
  • Southern Alert Mass Notification System

Please note that the WeatherChek phone line, 392-SNOW is no longer in service.

The decision to delay opening or close the University is based solely on the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff.
