Weather Related School Closing Policy


Students in Mods 1, 2, 3, 6, and Frontiers are excused from in-class activities when the University declares a snow-related closing.

Students in Mod 4 are excused when both the University and the City declare a snow emergency. Students are asked to use caution and consider their own personal safety and act accordingly with appropriate communication and coverage.

Students in Mod 5 with clinical responsibilities and who are directly involved in patient care such as Sub-Internship rotations are expected to meet their clinical obligations to their patients. They should consult with their team and/or attending in order to accommodate their own safety and to prioritize their role in patient care.
