Because of the difficulty in making up lost time, classes or examinations are cancelled only in extreme circumstances. In the event of an emergency University closing, announcements will be made over radio stations in Carrollton and the surrounding area, and radio and television stations in Atlanta.
At times of bad weather or other emergencies, University officials make decisions on whether or not to close the campus based on current conditions provided by University Police and other considerations. In such cases, the safety and security of the majority of the students is a prime consideration; however, we recognize that there may be special circumstances that pertain to individual students that are more serious than those that apply to the majority. Students are advised to use their best judgment about their safety and that of their families in those situations. Students should consult with individual faculty members about making up lost time.
Official announcements about class / examination cancellations will be made only by the President and/or the office of University Communications and Marketing.
The University reserves the right to schedule additional classes or examination sessions should some be cancelled.
Information on cancelled or rescheduled classes or examination sessions may also be obtained by calling the Department of University Police Weather Line, 678-839-6200 (day and night) - Please Do Not call the Emergency Number; the office of University Communications and Marketing, 678-839-6464 (daytime only); or visiting the University Website at www.westga.edu or enroll in Wolf Alert - the University's emergency warning system.
