Inclement Weather Policy


While in the midst of winter months, Arkansas Tech University is encouraging all students, faculty and staff to review the university inclement weather policy.

The inclement weather policy details procedures that will be used to notify university personnel and students should the campus be unable to operate due to current weather conditions.

In the event of inclement weather, Arkansas Tech University’s President’s Office will determine whether to close campus or enact the inclement weather policy.  A decision regarding inclement weather will be announced before 6:30 a.m. if at all possible.

On days where the inclement weather policy is placed into effect, all classes are cancelled, and employees should arrive at work by 10 a.m. to receive credit for a full day’s work. Employees arriving after 10 a.m. must use annual leave for the amount of time involved in the tardiness, and employees not coming to work at all must use a full day’s annual leave.

Additionally, in the event the university chooses to close, all university offices will be closed, and classes will be cancelled.

Arkansas Tech University will notify students and university personnel of inclement weather operations using several local media.  See the full list of media that will be notified.  Additionally, all inclement weather closings or delays will be posted on,, the university Facebook page and the university Twitter account.
