Emergency Closing Procedures

Students are always advised to contact their instructors directly regarding a class cancellation. When university hours are delayed, classes that start before the delayed time are canceled.  (For example, if classes are delayed until 10 a.m., then a class beginning at 9:30 a.m would be canceled, while a class starting at 10 a.m would be held.)
