When there is a concern or threat of inclement weather the University reserves the right to implement its weather emergency procedure. Should the University open late, close early, or cancel classes all affected classes are to transition to online sessions, unless otherwise specified by the instructor. Please use caution and allow ample time for travel and delays when travel becomes dangerous during inclement weather.

It is at the discretion of the University Provost to determine closings dependent on weather conditions. Immediately after the decision has been made, respective personnel will be notified about the closing status and a campus wide email will be issued.
