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 and classes will not meet.


Plan B

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 C  

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.

Essential service personnel will continue to report when either plan is in operation. Each division will identify essential personnel and services to be maintained. Employees should direct questions/concerns to their immediate supervisor.

Decisions regarding regional campus closings and classes held at off-campus sites will be made on an individual basis as appropriate for the service area and situations in the region.
