Emergency Updates and School Closings

Alliance University makes every attempt to keep AU open and operating during periods of heavy snow, ice or other severe weather. However, for safety reasons, it may be necessary to cancel classes or close the campus entirely because of dangerous weather conditions.

Because weather conditions can change quickly, we have developed a system to resume classes as quickly as possible after a major snow event. It’s important to remember two separate terms for weather-related closings:

Morning/Afternoon/Evening Classes Canceled: If morning, afternoon or evening classes are canceled, students and faculty are not required to come to campus for that time period. All other Alliance University employees should report to work because classes could resume later that day.

Campus Closed : All Alliance University classes are canceled. Students, faculty and employees are not required to come to campus except Physical Plant, Public Safety, and Food Service employees.

Class cancellation or closing information will be posted by 6 AM for morning classes, 10 AM for afternoon classes and 3 PM for evening classes. Alliance University will make every effort to resume classes as quickly as possible after a major snow or ice storm; however, safety will always be our first priority.

Emergency & School Closings will be announced as follows:

  • Alliance University website - https://allianceu.edu
