Safety & Security

According to state and BOR policy, state offices cannot be closed due to inclement weather. Please see the SDBOR policy for more information. However, the universities are given the ability to cancel or delay the start of classes due to poor weather conditions. When bad weather begins overnight, a decision to delay or cancel classes will be made by administration and an announcement will be posted on our website as well as on local television stations. There may be times when the weather conditions don't justify cancellation of all classes, but may prevent certain faculty members from getting to campus. Faculty who are unable to reach the work site should contact the college as soon as possible. It is the responsibility of the instructors to contact their students.

The campus alert system is an emergency notification tool for the public universities governed by the SD Board of Regents. Read more about the Campus Alert System (Everbridge).
