Winter weather information

Cancellation policy

Due to the residential nature of Augustana, the campus will generally remain open provided campus buildings are accessible.

The college relies on its facilities staff to report on conditions on campus and their ability to clear snow and/or ice; and National Weather Service forecasts and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) guidance on the safety of forecasted conditions.

Impacts to normal schedules will be communicated via Augie Alerts.

• If the college is on break and the weather may impact students returning to campus, a decision will be made on the day preceding the start of class after break.

• If classes are in session, a decision to cancel or delay will be communicated to campus by 6 a.m.

• Weather events that may impact campus during the day also will be communicated via Augie Alert.

In all weather situations, it is ultimately the personal responsibility of faculty, staff and students to make their own decisions regarding attendance and to use their judgment concerning travel conditions.
