If inclement weather forecasts have you wondering if MTSU classes and events will be delayed or cancelled, bookmark this page, mtsunews.com/weather, to keep track of the latest updates!
If inclement weather arises affecting university operations, MTSU will always inform the campus and surrounding community via:
All current MTSU students, faculty and staff automatically receive email alerts from Rave.
If you’d also like to receive text and/or voice alerts, click here and log in with your PipelineMT username and password.
(Rave Alert FAQs, including adding or changing contact information, are available here .)
If MTSU classes are cancelled or delayed, the announcement will apply to all classes, credit and noncredit. All university offices will be open unless the announcement specifically says they’ll be closed. Overnight decisions will be announced by 6 a.m. the following day.
Students concerned about class attendance during inclement weather can refer to the university’s 2013-14 “Blue Raider Planner and Handbook ,” which explains that
… students will be allowed to use their own discretion when snow and icy conditions exist; they will be given the opportunity to make up missed classes should they decide not to attend. (page 22)
Project Help, MTSU’s early intervention preschool, also has updated its inclement-weather closing policy. You can read the policy here and also check Project Help’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ProjectHelp for its weather closing updates.
MTSU also tests its tornado sirens monthly to ensure proper operation during tornado warnings and other emergency alerts. A schedule of the monthly tests is available at mtsunews.com/tornado-siren-testing. That page also includes a link to locations of the safest places on campus.
