Planning for Inclement Weather on Campus

It’s the time of year where campus may experience periodic inclement weather. While the university strives to remain open, extreme weather conditions may cause campus activity, including classes, exams, and student activities to be delayed, rescheduled, or canceled. Notification regarding the decision to delay or cancel will be communicated as quickly as possible via TTUAlert, campus email and website, and official Tennessee Tech social media accounts.

If there is inclement weather, be sure to take the following precautions:

  • Always check your campus email before commuting to campus or heading to class.
  • If you commute to campus, be sure to take caution and check weather and road conditions in your area – do not travel to campus if conditions are dangerous. If classes are not canceled and you are not able to travel to campus, email your professors as soon as possible to let them know and plan for any missed work.
  • Keep up with your coursework. Assignment deadlines may not be altered; it’s important to contact your instructor to determine if any changes will be made to course deadlines due to weather cancellations.
  • Make sure you have the essentials! It’s important to make sure you have essential items, such as food, water, toiletries, medications, etc. Roads may be dangerous and impassible, so make sure you have enough supplies to last a few days in case you are unable to leave your residence hall or home.

If classes are not cancelled, students are responsible for any academic work they miss as a result of inclement weather. No notice will be sent to media if the University continues to operate on a normal schedule; although, the University homepage and social media may be used to communicate that a normal schedule will be followed.
