My student commutes from Dexter. What are the University’s procedures when it snows or the road is icy?
The campus of Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau is seldom closed due to inclement weather. With numerous students residing in residence halls, on campus and in apartments and rental units close to campus, there is always a large contingent of students who can access the classrooms and buildings. However, there have been times when hazardous ice conditions or heavy snow have necessitated the delay or canceling of classes. In addition, the University has regional campus sites at Sikeston, Poplar Bluff, Kennett, Malden and Perryville. Since all students attending those regional camp uses are commuter students and weather conditions in those areas can vary widely from the conditions on the Cape Girardeau campus, the regional campus classes may be delayed or canceled even though the main campus is in session.
Students are always advised to stay up-to-date on the weather and road conditions. If a student feels he/she should not drive due to hazardous road conditions, he/she should contact their instructor(s) as soon as possible to convey that information. Contact information for the instructor should have been distributed to your student in the class syllabus at the beginning of the semester.In addition, contact numbers for instructors are located on the University's Web site under the "search people" icon.
Your student can get the most up-to-date information concerning campus closings through the University's Web site or through the student portal, My Southeast. Any campus or regional campus closings or delays will be communicated through those sites.
