Weather policy


When inclement weather threatens the safety of the University of Cincinnati community, the Senior Vice President for Administration and Finance may invoke University Rule 3361: 10-55-01 and declare an emergency closing or delay.

The College of Allied Health Sciences will observe the university emergency closing protocol for all on-campus classes (online courses will always proceed as normal). During a university emergency weather closing, all college offices will be closed or working remotely. 

Students should clarify with their course instructors how the closure will affect assignments and deadlines, and whether the class will proceed in a virtual or alternative format.

Students currently enrolled in off-campus clinical practicums, field experience, and internships should refer to their individual program's student handbook to determine if they are expected to report to their placement site during the closure. Each placement site and each program will have different policies and procedures. Program handbooks will also have more specific information about their specific weather policy.
