*INCLEMENT WEATHER ALERT*
Due to the impending winter weather event, ECPI University would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone of our inclement weather policy:
The ECPI University policy is to remain open whenever possible. If snow or other weather conditions or an emergency situation results in school closings/delays, announcements will be posted on the student portal of the University web site, local television, and/or radio stations. If you do not see the school closing on any of these media outlets, or you do not receive communication directly from the campus, it is safe to assume the campus is open. The front office at each campus can provide a list of stations notified of ECPI University closings.
However, if you absolutely cannot make it into class, you will not be penalized. There is a liberal attendance policy in effect and we encourage you to contact your Program Director or academic advisor for further information. Please use your best judgement when deciding to come to class as your safety is one of our top priorities!
ECPI University’s policy to remain open during inclement weather is based on a simple, but important premise. The vast majority of our students are preparing to enter fields that demand that they work through all types of weather conditions. Critical mission employers in health care, information technology and hospitality rarely shut down, if ever. That is why during student orientation, students are told that ECPI University rarely closes due to weather. Therefore, we encourage all students and staff to prepare for these situations.
Please stay tuned to your local news stations and the student portals for the most recent information regarding your specific campus. The ECPI University Social Media Team will make every effort to post any update here as well.
