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.
