Before the forecast predicts the next big snowstorm, NAU faculty, staff and students can take several steps to stay informed about the weather and how it affects university operations.

During inclement weather, the university may remain open for normal business, schedule a delayed start, cancel classes or cancel all campus operations except for essential services on the Flagstaff campus.

The decision generally is made before 6 a.m., with the determination to cancel evening classes made between 3 and 4 p.m.

Students, faculty and staff are notified through local media, email, FacebookTwitter, the NAU home pageMyNAU and the NAU Now Line.

The university also will send out an NAU Alert text message in the event that classes or university operations are on a delayed start or canceled.

Students who feel unsafe driving to class should contact their instructors to determine how to make up classroom assignments. Employees should contact their supervisors or follow normal departmental procedures.

NAU’s snow closure policy is available online.
