In cases when a weather emergency creates a network or power outage, students should refer to the network outage policies established by faculty in the course syllabus.

If students regularly use the computer or Internet resources of a location other than their home/dorm (work, library, etc.), and inclement weather makes travel to that location impossible, students should contact their instructor to discuss options for completing work in a timely manner. In such cases, instructors will decide what on an appropriate course of action. 

Students working in geographical areas other than St. Louis, Mo., and experiencing inclement weather not occurring in St. Louis that prohibits participation in online courses and online sessions of blended courses, should make every effort to communicate their situation to the instructor of their course.

Faculty members working in geographical areas other than St. Louis, Mo., and experiencing inclement weather not occurring in St. Louis that prohibits participation in online courses and online sessions of blended courses, should make every effort to communicate their situation to the department chair/dean and the Registrar.
