Weather Plans

Morehead State University has developed a plan for announcing emergency delays and cancellations. These are most often associated with inclement weather and unpredictable weather patterns occurring in the winter months.

The University will select the appropriate option when dealing with delays that may affect the daily schedule of students, faculty, staff and/or visitors to the main campus. When road conditions are problematic, MSU employees and students should exercise good judgment in traveling to and from campus. Those concerned that weather conditions make it too dangerous for travel to campus should follow pre-determined procedures regarding class attendance or work assignments.
 

Plan A

MSU is closed. All administrative offices are closed. All classes including in-person, distance-learning and online classes will not meet.
 

Plan B

MSU is closed. In-person classes are cancelled.

However, students and employees should note:
 

Students

  • Distance-learning, online and hybrid classes are at the discretion of the instructor.
  • Off-campus student practicums & internships at discretion of MSU supervisor/sponsoring organization
  • Student employees should contact their MSU supervisor.
  • Continue to monitor MSU email/Blackboard & other communication outlets

Employees

  • VP’s/supervisors will contact essential employees to assist on campus. 
  • All other employees should monitor critical student and operational services virtually, if able.
  • Continue to monitor MSU email & other communication outlets.
