Graduate Regulations

Inclement Weather Policy

Every reasonable effort should be made to have class when it is safe to do so. With campuses scattered throughout the state, it is impossible to develop a weather policy that will work in all areas, at all times. Therefore, it is the decision of the facilitator and the class representative to determine if weather conditions are widespread and severe enough to warrant cancellation.

CLASSES THAT ARE CANCELLED BECAUSE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER SHOULD BE MADE UP IF AT ALL POSSIBLE. Instructors that are considering the cancellation of class for inclement weather may call the Director of Graduate and Professional Studies for consultation if they feel the need to do so.

If weather conditions warrant cancellation of a class at a specific site, the established communication chain for the relevant cohort group(s) will be activated. Facilitators who do cancel class should inform the University Coordinator of Off-Campus Support via phone at 573-592-4347 or via email at
