Inclement Weather Policy

Edwards Campus staff monitor inclement weather very closely. Generally, the University does not close because of snow or other inclement weather. In the rare event that classes are suspended, the decision to cancel classes that start before 4 p.m. is made by 7 a.m. For classes that start after 4 p.m. a decision is made by 2 p.m.

The Edwards Campus maintains a class cancellation line and updates this message daily during inclement weather. To reach it, call 913-897-8499.

The the homepage of the Edwards Campus website is also a good source of information about class cancellation and campus closures. In those situations, a special message will appear on the homepage.

The campus will also post information on Facebook and Twitter, and notifications are sent to local media outlets.

If classes are not canceled by campus administration, it is at the discretion of the faculty if they want to cancel their class or dismiss class early.
