University Closing Policy

Official class cancellations, university delays or closings are infrequent events. In certain circumstances such as inclement weather, power outages or other extreme conditions the Provost will make the decision regarding class cancellations, university delays or closings after consulting with appropriate members of the University community.

It is important to distinguish between class cancellations, university delays and closings.

University Closings, Delays and Class Cancellations Policy and FAQs are located on the University-Wide Policy Library.
