Cancellation / Delay Procedure
At the discretion of the President, classes may be cancelled or delayed because of inclement weather conditions or special circumstances. The most accurate cancellation and delay information for Central Connecticut State University will be made available on the Storm Phone: (860) 832-3333 and on the Web: http://www.ccsu.edu. These services will be updated as conditions warrant. The University may also deploy its Emergency Notification System in announcing cancellations, especially in cases of rapidly developing severe weather.
If the University is forced to close or delay during the final examination period because of storm conditions, this information will also be made available on the Storm Phone and the Web. These services will also carry information from the Registrar’s Office once the affected exams are rescheduled.
The University will also notify the broadcast media of cancellations or delays affecting regular classes or exams. WTIC-AM 1080 is the principal radio outlet. WFSB-TV 3, WTNH-TV 8 and WVIT-TV 30 are the principal television outlets. However, we strongly recommend using the University’s web and Storm Phone (860-832-3333) services for the most accurate information about CCSU's closings or delays.
When evening classes are cancelled, this includes all classes beginning at 4:30 pm and thereafter.
Librarians, administrators and staff are expected to report as scheduled and follow normal working hours unless a directive is issued by the President or in cases where the Governor's office announces a statewide shutdown of all state agencies.
When Faculty Must Cancel Individual Classes
Unless cancelled as described above, classes should meet. Each year we have complaints resulting from instances where students came to required classes only to discover that the instructor had cancelled. Use good sense if road conditions are poor, but be mindful that conscientious students will do their utmost to fulfill expectations. Please don't disappoint them. If inclement weather conditions do prevent you from being on campus when classes are otherwise in session, please make arrangements for notifying students in your classes using the University's e-mail or voice mail utilities.
