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. All In-person classes will not meet. However, alternative (virtual) learning may continue at the discretion of the instructor.



  • Students should monitor MSU email, Blackboard, & other communication outlets to stay informed.
  • Off-campus student practicums & internships are also at the discretion of MSU supervisors/sponsoring organizations.
  • Student employees should contact their MSU supervisors.


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

Plan C 

MSU will operate on a two-hour delay. Offices will open at 10 a.m. Monday/Wednesday/Friday classes will begin with the 10 a.m. class; Tuesday/Thursday classes will begin with the 11 a.m. class.

Plan D 

MSU will operate on a 1 hour and 30-minute delay. Offices will open at 9:30 a.m.; Tuesday/Thursday classes will begin with the 9:30 a.m. class.
