Faculty and students are not expected to take unnecessary risks to meet their teaching and learning obligations due to inclement weather. When classes have not been cancelled, it is a matter of personal judgment whether traveling to campus is hazardous.

In such cases, students should be allowed to make up missed class time and, whenever possible, canceled classes should be rescheduled.
