Inclement Weather Policy


Announcements about weather-related changes to the class schedule will be delivered through Bulldog Alert by email and text message and will be posted on the UNC Asheville website homepage. Students, faculty and staff are automatically registered for Bulldog Alert. Contact information may be confirmed at You can also hear the latest updates by calling the university inclement weather line at 828.258.7985.

Decisions to cancel classes, open campus at a later than normal time, or continue on a regular schedule will be made as much in advance as possible, and by 6 a.m. when classes are in session. If classes are delayed, we will post a time that they start. Should it be announced that the campus will open at a later than normal time, only classes that start at or after the announced time will meet. For example, an 11 a.m. opening will mean that classes that start before 11 a.m. would not meet that day and the class schedule would begin with classes starting at 11 a.m. A class with a start time of 10:30 a.m., for example would not meet; all classes with a start time of 11 a.m. or later would meet as usual.
