Class Cancellations

Cancellation of classes means only that classes are not in session-the campus remains open. The decision to cancel a non-academic event such as Athletics, Student Development activities, etc., will be made by the director responsible for the activity in consultation with his/her vice president.

Campus Closure

In extreme emergency conditions, the campus may be closed and all functions cease with the exception of those functions considered essential to the well-being of students, those service activities available for students living on campus, and those functions deemed essential to the protection of life and property.

Morning announcements will be made by 5:30 a.m. and afternoon/evening announcements will be made by 2:30 p.m.
