conditions, and 2) anticipated changes in weather/road conditions. The decision
to delay or cancel classes is based on what seems best for the majority of students.
If class is canceled, then that class period must be made up. Professors and
students are encouraged to choose the make-up time carefully as the entire class
is expected to attend.
Administrative Procedure Regarding Inclement Weather
for Classes NOT on the Main Campus
The decision to cancel classes at locations not on the main campus is the
responsibility of the professor teaching the course in consultation with his or her
academic division chair. If the chair is not available, coordination should take
place with the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Consultation and a decision regarding the cancellation of classes not on the main
campus should, ideally, take place within at least one hour of the start of class or
at the earliest possible time to avoid students beginning to travel to the class site.
Communication to students regarding the status of classes should be made via
e-mail or by telephone by the professor teaching the course.
The professor teaching the course, the division chair, or the Vice President for
Academic Affairs will also notify the Director of Public Relations, who will post
an announcement on the BC web site.
