During the winter season, inclement weather sometimes necessitates the cancellation of face-to-face classes. Rather than calling your Center, please take advantage of JBU's communication options.
If the location/Center is closed, your class will be cancelled. The easiest way to know about location closures is register for Information Alerts via the Crisis Alert System on JBU's intranet, Eaglenet. The CAS is location specific and is the most up-to-date information available about class cancellation. (Note: class cancellations are an information alert — not a crisis alert — so make sure to register for Information Alerts to hear when classes are cancelled.) Alerts are sent to your JBU email and via a phone call. You may also choose to receive information via text messaging or to an alternative email address. In most circumstances, the decision to cancel is made around 3:00 p.m.
In addition, we will post closing information on each Center's Facebook page (click the link for each location's page).
Occasionally, Graduate Business classes will be cancelled even if the Center/location is open and other classes are being held. In that case, you will be notified of your class cancellation by your instructor.
Note: only face-to-face classes are cancelled due to inclement weather; online classes will continue as scheduled, regardless of weather.
Your safety is our utmost concern, so if classes are being held but road conditions make it too dangerous for you to attend, please contact your instructor as soon as possible to determine how to submit your missed assignment(s).
Again, we ask that rather than calling your Center, you plan ahead by choosing one of the above options to access any inclement weather notifications.
