Weather-Related Cancelations

The University normally makes decisions regarding weather-related closures and delays by 6 AM. Please check the University’s homepage and your email for weather-related closure announcements. Due to accreditation, each course must meet a minimum of 15 instructional hours for a 1-credit course and 30 instructional hours for a 2-credit course. Lab courses are 30 instructional hours for a 1-credit course. Should the cancelation/delay cause you to fall under the minimum, you’ll need to either:

  1. Coordinate with students for a make-up day. If needed, please contact the Scheduling Office to secure a room by emailing You may inquire whether your current room or a similar room is available. The scheduling office will let you know if your request can be honored.
  2. Record your lecture and make it available on Blackboard. The CER staff is available to provide you with guidance and resources. More information can be found here.

In either case, please be sure to email students with make-up instructions (date, time, location), and please keep us informed by emailing so we can direct any inquiries. You may schedule a make-up meeting in consultation with your students, but remember to contact the Registrar’s Scheduling Office to secure a room if you are meeting in person.
