Class Cancellations

Faculty Absence

Unless an announcement is made to the contrary, classes are considered dismissed if the instructor does not appear within 15 minutes of the beginning of the class period.  Students are expected to check for any communications from their instructor informing them of any expectations with regards to the course.

Inclement Weather

In the event of inclement weather, students are asked to call the INFO Line at 980-JWU-INFO (980-598-4636) for potential class cancellations or campus closure announcements. Students will receive an announcement in their JWU email and it will be posted in the emergency alerts section of jwuLink and the Charlotte Campus website. Communications & Media Relations will also notify the local radio station WBT AM (1110) and television stations News 14 Carolina, WBTV 3 (CBS), WCNC 6 (NBC) and WSOC 9 (ABC). 

Please refrain from calling other university numbers for information on cancellations or closings due to inclement weather.
