Regional Campus Inclement Weather Plan

When faced with a severe weather event, regardless of an official University announcement, the determination of safe travel or other unforeseen situations rests with the individual. Weather in Richmond may be different from weather in another area of the state; employees should coordinate with their supervisors to determine work attendance due to weather-related circumstances. For students, please coordinate with your professors to develop solutions for missed classes or work.
Sometimes the University will be open but will follow the attached Two-Hour Delay Schedule.  Classes starting at 4:00 and later will be on regular schedule.  For example, a Tuesday, 4:00 - 6:45 pm class would still meet 4:00 - 6:45 pm on Inclement Weather Schedule.  All E-Presence classes will follow the Richmond Inclement Weather Schedule.  If the Richmond campus is closed, ALL EKU regional campuses and site classes are cancelled.  EKU classes at Big Sandy, ECTC, Hazard, MECC, Somerset and Southeast are cancelled if that campus is closed and are subject to the ECTC/KCTCS/MECC opening and closing times if applicable.
