Inclement Weather Policy

Adoption of an Inclement Weather Schedule for MSU students and University employees

As you are aware our University experiences inclement weather periodically throughout the winter months, and on occasion may encounter times within other parts of the year in which students, faculty, and staff cannot safely arrive to campus at 8:00 a.m. Therefore, the University has adopted a two-hour delayed schedule for both academic classes and employee operations in the event that inclement weather causes a need for delayed morning travel due to snow or other reasons beyond our control.

Should the University elect to use the Inclement Weather Schedule at any time, an ‘all users’ email will be sent to students, faculty, and staff notifying them of such, and an announcement will be posted to the MSU Homepage, all official university social media platforms, and reported to the news media.

In the event that the University announces usage of the Inclement Weather Schedule, all students and instructional faculty would report to classes at the designated time(s) shown on the web link below. Likewise, the hours of operation for University faculty and staff will be modified from the normal 8:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m. to the modified hours of 10:00 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
