Winter Weather Policy

  • Classes will be canceled when road and weather conditions warrant. 
  • When weather is not severe enough to cancel classes but poses extreme driving conditions, students are advised to stay home rather than take unnecessary risks.  Faculty will accommodate students missing class under these circumstances.
  • Students seeking individual class cancellation information should contact the faculty member or the faculty member's department.
  1. Alerts (weather, natural disasters, cancellation of classes, campus alerts, etc.) appear at the top of USD's web pages and myU. portal pages.
  2. Critical weather-related and emergency alerts may also be issued through local television and radio announcements.
