Adverse Weather Excused Absense and Cancelled Classes
Excused Absence When Classes are in Session: Students who are unable to attend class due to adverse weather conditons will be given an excused absence and will be permitted to make up missed assignments. Students missing class for this reason must, if possible, contact their instructors that day to make arrangements for making up missed assignments.
Cancellation/Delay of Classes: Factors affecting our decision to cancel/delay classes will include snowfall, temperature, wind, road conditions, and road closings. A decision will also be made regarding campus offices and Maki Library.
